Here’s a collection of personal development audibles I’ve listened to or have queued up to give my first listen.

I have to say since I’ve been deliberate in my personal development, so far my faves in this list have been You Were Born Rich, You Are A Bad Ass, Successful Women Think Differently, and Kick Ass with Mel Robbins.


This is an audible I play regularly just to make sure I catch “the several ways the ideas discussed fit into my life.

Born Rich teaches the concept of the self-image, how your self-image develops and controls your results, why you must change it to change your results and how to do so.

What’s extra cool is there’s a free download of the workbook used during the lecture recorded for the audible. I downloaded mine, had it printed and spiral bound. It came in handy.

“In You Were Born Rich, Bob Proctor has done it again, this time taking you step by step to the surprising discovery that success is not always reaching out for something that you don’t have but rather only reaching over and rearranging the pieces already there. The great value of this audiobook is that you can instantly apply the conclusions to your own life. It will begin to impact you long before you reach the last chapter.” Read more

You Were Born Rich by Bob Proctor


In her latest book, The Universe Has Your Back, New York Times best-selling author Gabrielle Bernstein teaches listeners how to transform their fear into faith in order to live a divinely guided life.

The lessons help listeners relinquish the need to control so they can relax into a sense of certainty and freedom. Listeners will learn to stop chasing life and truly live. Making the shift from fear to faith will give listeners a sense of power in a world that all too often makes them feel utterly powerless. When the tragedies of the world seem overwhelming, this book will help guide them back to their true power.” Read more
