Best books for growth

This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous.

Neagle Code Question

Hi David! I’ve heard you mention many times that you’ve read thousands of books. Can you recommend a handful that you think should be the foundation of anyone who wants to develop themselves? There are SO MANY books out there…I’d like a place to start!

Neagle Code Answer

I was just asked this question at a meeting I attended last week…actually I was asked about my favorite book.

And my answer was that I don’t have a favorite…I LOVE them ALL!

But I will give you a list of the books that I’ve found most helpful to my growth and the growth of my students.

If someone were to ask me what book has been the most influential in my life, I would say it is The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace Wattles. I still remember the day I picked it up and read it, and I can honestly say since that day over 20 years ago, I’ve never travelled or taught without it.

It’s a book that explained so much for me, and even now, I can open any page, at any time and see the truth in its pages. It appears to be a short simple book, but actually I’ve found that there are hidden “secrets” that most people miss.

I’m going to be sharing those secrets in a free training I’m hosting on Tuesday. If you’ve read it several times, or even if you’ve never picked the book up before, I invite you to join me.

The other books I’d recommend are:

• You2
– by Price Pritchett
• God Works Through Faith
– by Robert A. Russell
• The Four Agreements
– by Don Miguel Ruiz
• Think & Grow Rich
– by Napoleon Hill
• Working With The Law
– by Raymond Holliwell

Before you go blasting through each of these books to check them off your list, I suggest that you “STUDY” them. Go slow and take them chapter by chapter.

Each one of them
contains pure gold.

PS: If you enjoy reading my weekly Neagle Code, you'll LOVE my podcast, The Successful Mind. You can expect cutting edge information and strategies relating to success mindset, leadership, wealth creation, and relationships, all based in Universal Law and my own experience creating a multi-million dollar business.

  1. David, I loved reading this article, because, thanks to you and all the years I have studied with you, I am able to say I have read every one of these books. As you say, I didn’t just read through them. I learned from watching you carry your books and read them and refer to them, especially Working With the Law. I keep them on hand and study them and refer to them. Just a few minutes in one of these books sometimes gives me just the nugget I need.

    I encourage anyone who hasn’t already to attend one of your live teaching events. They are so powerful. You are a wonderful Spiritual Teacher.

    I am grateful to you.

    • Thanks so much Michelle for sharing. I am grateful for you as well, and others like you, who have committed to going on a journey like this and making a difference in the lives of others. It’s such a rewarding life and I am very blessed to get to do it every day. How cool is that?!? I appreciate the post!
