Personal development books

Hi everyone!
This summer I became interested in broadly understood personal development. I've read some books in this topic so far. Ones that made the greatest impression on me is "Atomic Habits" by James Clear and "Compound Effect" by Darren Hardy. Thanks to them, I became aware of many things related to human behavior. Recently I bought also "Mindset: The New Psychology of Success". Could you please recommend any similar books? What are your favorites? I am open to any suggestions for books in the field of personal development and psychology.
For me, "The 7 habits of highly effective teens" by Sean Covey was the best personal development book. But I don't know if you are a teenager. If you are not then you can try "The 7 habits of highly effective people" by Stephen Covey.

Your head is a houseboat by Campbell Walker aka Struthless.

He’s a YouTuber who is very open with his struggles with mental health and addiction and he has a really healthy approach to understanding why we think the way we do when it comes to things like being overwhelmed and not feeling good enough etc. It’s well worth a read and his videos are worth watching too, it was the first mental health book I’ve read from someone I feel 1. Has been there and 2. He just gets it and the way he visualises it is very cool. Also the book is illustrated by him so it’s a very cool book and I recommend.
I enjoy reading personal development and right now very much into intuition and separately improving my memory and exam performance.

I was lucky enough to attend the live Zoom trainings during the Covid hiatus. I can still hone my skills in intuition daily on Instagram it is free. People from all walks of life professions attend we have metaphysician those interested in Woo (Tarot and divination) and rationalist, sceptical scientist even so it not for everyone but I recommend atleast checking it out and some of the book sell still for the price of a cup of coffee. New Yorker Laura has had Nobel prize winning scientist, doctors endorsing her work. Laura is soon to have a new book out watch out for it, it will be a definitive book.

Mindset: How You Can Fulfil Your Potential

"World-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck, in decades of research on achievement and success, has discovered a truly groundbreaking idea-the power of our mindset. Dweck explains why it's not just our abilities and talent that bring us success-but whether we approach them with a fixed or growth mindset. She makes clear why praising intelligence and ability doesn't foster self-esteem and lead to accomplishment, but may actually jeopardize success. With the right mindset, we can motivate our kids and help them to raise their grades, as well as reach our own goals-personal and professional.

Dweck reveals what all great parents, teachers, CEOs, and athletes already know: how a simple idea about the brain can create a love of learning and a resilience that is the basis of great accomplishment in every area. Mindset was originally published in North America under the title 'Mindset: The New Psychology of Success'.
