Stace and Kristie are always asked for advice on how to start self-help, and they are always raving about books that made a difference for them on their own journeys.

Stace has said that she and Kristie are both people who want to change and improve and work on themselves, and you don’t just get that as a handout.

So where / how do you get started? A solid book / podcast on self improvement is a good place to start! Here are a few of the gals faves…

  1. You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay
    The key message here is: “If we are willing to do the mental work, almost anything can be healed.” Limiting beliefs and ideas can be the cause of illness, so changing your thinking improves your quality of life!
  2. The Wisdom of Sundays: Life Changing Insights from Super Soul Conversations by Oprah Winfrey
    The best conversations from Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday condensed into one amazing book.
  3. The Power of Vulnerability: TED Talk by Brenè Brown
    Brenè Brown’s TED Talk covers her research into vulnerability and shame, and how we need them for human connection. It’s all about rethinking how you cope with your emotions and how important those emotions are.
  4. The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself by Michael A. Singer
    This book focuses on your thoughts and emotions, helping you discover the source of and changes to your inner energy. It’s all about moving away from habitual thoughts, emotions and energy patterns that limit your consciousness.
  5. The Power of Vulnerability: Teachings on Authenticity, Connection and Courage by Brenè Brown
    Vulnerability is not a weakness. It is the greatest measure of courage and we need to embrace our vulnerabilities.
  6. The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
    A fable about following your intuition and finding your purpose. We all have one.
  7.  A New World by Eckhart Tolle
    This book (the follow up to the acclaimed The Power Of Now) delves deeper in consciousness. Beware – you may have to read every line at least twice to have it sink in!
  8. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck by Mark Manson
    Fucking brilliant. Looks at self help in a completely revolutionary way and the way it’s written is witty, brilliant and hilarious.
  9. Buddhism for Breakups by Meshel Laurie
    Talks about grieving your relationship but also the ‘future life’ and ‘future self’ you had imagined and how to let that go .

The girls told us exactly how some of these books have helped them at the Sydney Posse Podcast Live – you can listen here:
