TOP 10 Books Recommended by Coaches

Self-help is a big book category — skip the searching and start here with the list of top must-reads recommended by coaches.

“Like all explorers, we’re drawn to discover what’s out there without knowing yet if we have the courage to face it.”

-Pema Chödrön

It’s daunting to step out into the unknown — new job, new relationship…really a new anything! But experiencing the new and unknown is what helps us grow, keeps us changing, aides in our evolving and learning new things about ourselves, others and/or our environments.

Living in this day and age is a blessing and a curse in many ways. We have the internet — a whole world that is a click away for copious amounts of knowledge, contradicting knowledge even, that pulls us deeper and deeper into a rabbit hole until we sometimes forget what it was that we were searching for in the first place.

The point is, we have a wealth of information at our fingertips at any moment… so rather than entering the unknown web search or physical store aisles searching for that one thing you’re looking for let us hold your hand as you take these baby steps into reflecting on yourself and the change you want to make.

Through the help of our valued coaches from the Collective Gain Community here is a curated list of Must Reads as recommended by our Coaches that will help you in live in the now at your fullest potential. And after a couple of reads and some reflection by means of journaling, come back here leave a comment. We want to know your biggest takeaways and aha’s.

Don’t let another day, week or year go by with the same goal or dream feeling too far away. If you can dream it, you can achieve it — you just may need some help along the way. People who get to where they want to go, don’t do it alone.

And when you’re ready, we are here. To support you with content, pairing you with a coach or a healer, or just being a place to dream bigger and ponder what might be possible if you stepped into the best version of yourself.
