Book Personality Development No. 1:
The War of Art – Steven Pressfield
The book is unfortunately only available in English, but it is Deniz’s absolute favorite book. By far this book beats everything on the market. It is about the daily resistance against which we fight in the context of our work, the art we cultivate or life itself. These resistances never stop.
When a voice whispers in your ear: “That’s enough for today, enjoy the day”. Then you know what the resistance is. This book is explicitly about writing, about art, but this can be applied to everything in life.
Recommended for everyone who wants to live creatively.
Book Personality Development No. 2:
Courage – Osho
The spiritual Osho deals in this book with the subject of courage and fear. He has a very critical, different view of things. It may seem a bit esoteric at first, but the book has a lot of potential to look at your fear differently than you do now.
For people who want to get closer to their fear.

Emotional Intelligence – Daniel Goleman
A somewhat scientifically written book, which stretches itself part in the length. But despite all this, Goleman illuminates the aspect of intelligence from a completely different angle.

Things like empathy and social understanding play a role here. A very interesting book on the topic of dealing with people, has thus earned a place in our TOP 101 books personality development!

Do, don’t think – Richard Wiseman
Again a book by Wiseman, again scientifically proven texts. This book presents the phenomenon that we humans feel the way we behave. Our feelings trigger a certain behavior, but when we act and pretend to laugh, it triggers the feeling of happiness. This book deals with this phenomenon and many interesting tips that can be applied at any time.

Book Personality Development No. 10:
The Power Principle – Anthony Robbins
Yes, it was only a matter of time before this book appeared in the TOP 101 books Personality Development. It is probably the ultimate collection of methods to change your whole life. But unfortunately we have to confess to you: It is sometimes too much to begin with personality development. Very few will even read half of the book, let alone use the exercises.
Nevertheless, this book is a gold mine and recommendable for those who really want to deal intensively with the topic of personality development.
Book Personality Development No. 11:
The Art of Being an Egoist – Joseph Kirschner
The egoist has a bad reputation these days. In this book, Kirschner clears it up and explains to you how you successfully manage to make yourself happy. Because when you are happy, only then are you able to be full for others. Accordingly, it is only beneficial for everyone that you begin to act more selfishly and think more about yourself.
