6. Gary Vaynerchuk

Gary Vaynerchuk is the chairman of VaynerX, a prominent communication company that deals with social media agencies. Despite having nothing while moving to America, he energized himself seeing his parents working for long hours. 

After graduating from college, he started a wine library – a daily webcast on wine.  He is very active in media sources rapping social media strategies. He provides his services to even many of the Fortune 500 Companies. From a social media platform, he shares his experience of being an entrepreneur. Additionally, he broadcasts the rules of success that have a direct impact on our lives.

Gary promotes the successful tips that an individual can apply in a practical way. He bridges the link between marketing, investing and productivity that creates a sophisticated living. 

He believes that Self-Investing is the best thing anyone could do to use their time.

Today, he is not only an entrepreneur but also a YouTuber creating shorts documentaries on personal development. 

I enjoy his YouTube Channel GaryVee, and I’m sure you will feel the same way.

“Developing your personal brand is the same thing as living and breathing your résumé”

Gary Vaynerchuk


5. Robin Sharma

Robin Sharma is an extraordinary icon who was born in Canada. He has written many books that unfold the steps to self-growth. 

In his book The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari, he has narrated the story of a successful lawyer who suffers from a heart attack. Before that incident, all he wanted was to have a successful name for himself as a lawyer. But since then, he chose to live a peaceful life. 

The small things we do can lead to our big destination. Irrespective of our wealth, we all have 24 hours in a day. Thus, he portrays in his book that time management is the best skill that a successful person has. 

Besides, from his book Who Will Cry When You Die, his readers get to indulge in the real-life scenario. He has divided broad topics into precise topics. So you can read a chapter every morning to give your day on a positive start.

His books have helped me to discover my inner potential. So what are you waiting for? Grab one of his books, and find the changes in yourself.

“I once read that people who study others are wise but those who study themselves are enlightened.”

Robin Sharma


4. Nick Vujicic

Nick Vujicic is an Australian who was born with tetra-amelia syndrome. Tetra-amelia syndrome is a rare disorder with no arms and legs. Even his mother rejected him when she first saw him. But later, she accepted him as the gift of God. 

His book Life Without Limits: Inspiration of a Ridiculously Good Life gained popularity as it got released. While reading the book, I was engraved into his life story and found myself in his position.

He sees his life as an opportunity to rise not as a disabled person. He believes that we are the ones to create a limit in our lives by blaming it on the outer appearance. Life is unstoppable and the bond becomes stronger when you set a goal to break all those limits.

I questioned myself, why do I expect more from life when there is no limit on it?

 He started a nonprofit organization called Life Without Limbs in 2005. Even more, he embarks a journey to the world, preaching the essentiality of our lives. 

Now, with these beliefs, he set his foot in different countries to inspire people all over the world.

His life story makes me wonder,

What really is impossible in life?

So, why not learn from him and live a better life?

“The challenges in our lives are there to STRENGTHEN our CONVICTIONS. They are NOT there to run us over.”

Nick Vujicic


3. Susan Cain

Apart from all these powerful influencers, Susan Cain’s character describes her uniqueness to conquer the negating beliefs among the introverts. Her career is better described as a lawyer, owner, and principal of The Negotiation Company. Yet, her longing want was to be a writer and to reach people to stimulate the power of lives.

She was astonished by the judgemental character of society towards introverted people. She believes that our freedom must be the first priority rather than what our society might think of us. 

Her TED Talks Speech has already influenced more than 10 million people. Susan’s book Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking differentiates between shyness and introvert. She proclaims shyness as the fear of societal judgment while the introvert is how you respond to stimulation.

Her character defines her determined vision to improve other’s personal life. She has revolutionized our thinking toward being an introvert. 

“Don’t think of introversion as something that needs to be cured…Spend your free the way you like, not the way you think you’re supposed to.”

Susan Cain


2. Brian Tracy

An author of over 70 books, Brian Tracy is a person with a goal to inspire people in living life with the destination. 

He has visited more than 70 countries to talk about personal development and its relation to our profession. His most popular books include Eat That Frog and Maximum Achievement. The simple application tips in his books make it effective among his readers.

Eat That Frog tells us not to procrastinate our key goals. Sometimes we feel we are being productive by accomplishing our daily goals. But this is not always true.  

Even we might not be aware of how our activities relate to our goal.  In our time congestion, electronic distraction further encourages our procrastination habits. To contrast this, he states we are able to break all our procrastinating behavior with long term perspectives.

Brian credits self-discipline as the path to success and time management to be the core skill of life. Brian preaches us to accomplish the goals that will have a lasting positive impact. For the effective self-development tactics, one must know the importance of it. 

He has helped many people across the world to identify their life goals and find the purpose of doing it. 

Only setting your goals isn’t enough. Polishing your goals with concrete effort is what will make you feel accomplished in the long term. 

“Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others. Unsuccessful people are always asking, ‘What’s in it for me?’”

Brian Tracy


1. Dale Carnegie

Dale Carnegie was a spirit who rose from poverty to prosperity by helping others to improve their lives. Before going to school, he had to work on his farm. At such an early age, he used to wake up at 3 AM in the morning to milk cows and feed pigs.

Beginning the journey from a small farm, Carnegie later sold bacon, soap, and lards as well. Through salesmanship, he learned the importance of public speaking courses. He then decided to raise opportunities for developing personal skills.

One of his popular books How to Win Friends and Influence People has sold over five million copies in 31 languages. This is the prime example of his consistency in improving interpersonal relations. This has further led to achieving personal goals.

We end up doing nothing when we expect others to start the conversation. This has to relate to our potential to influence others by means of our interpersonal skills. 

 He conducted many Carnegie courses to raise the spirit of Americans and others for self- confidence. As a young man, Warren Buffet took the Dale Carnegie Public Speaking Course. If you happen to visit his office, you won’t find his MBA degree hanging in his wall. Rather, you will see the Carnegie course’s certificate there. He says that the $100 Course has played a major part in shaping his life.

“Develop success from failures. Discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping stones to success.”

Dale Carnegie

After all, these personal development influencers reflect the reality of our life.

Visualizing the world from these people, I have realized that it doesn’t matter who you are. But it’s important to know your identity and work on developing yourselves. Moreover, with effective time management skills, you can be a leader of your life.

All these embody together to script real humans behind us. So in this limited span of time, let’s fledge our personal skills into prosperity. 

But before diving into personal development, let’s Know about Ourselves, shall we?
