Tip of the Week | Six People You Should Listen Too and Do What They Say

So you want to change yourself, but don’t know who to trust? Here are our six experts in the area of personal development that you can trust.

Jim Rohn – Personal Development. Well-known 20th-century author and speaker in the field of personal development. Rohn was one of the pioneers in personal development.

Zig Ziglar – Business and Professional Development. My favorite Salesman in the world, Zig mixes incredible wit and humor designed to help business professionals exceed in tight markets.

Denis Waitley – Personal and Professional Development. A little lesser known person today. Waitley is best known for his work “The Psychology of Winning.” Waitley researched prisoners of war who survived to discover how they were able to cope with extreme situations. His insights have been applied to sports, business, and life.

Dave Ramsey – Personal Finance. Ramsey is well-known today. But his story is like many. He went broke and then tried to figure out why.

John Maxwell – Leadership. Maxwell is best known for leadership. But he also includes other insights. Read anything by John Maxwell.

Michael Hyatt – Leadership, Productivity, and Publishing. Hyatt was not my first guru that I ever listened too, but he was the first voice I heard after my life crashed. Grace Nation is in part due to his voice, vis-a-vis his podcast, in my ear. I highly recommend Michael Hyatt.
