100 Kick Ass Personal Development Sites

Kick Ass Personal Development Sites

The beginning of the year is the best time to take a look at how your life is going.  It’s a perfect time for creating new habits, setting goals, and making real change in your life. You can decide on the steps you need to implement in order to have success throughout the coming year.

However, we can do this process any time of the year.  In fact, I think it’s good practice to revisit your goals and aspirations continuously throughout the year.

One way you can do this is with the use of personal development sites.

At one time, only a select few could benefit from the personal development industry.  If you could not shell out thousands of dollars for a seminar, you were out of luck.  However, the internet has changed all of that and has opened the doors to a lot of information.  Most of the time the information found on personal development sites is available for free.  If not free, it is definitely much more affordable now.  Therefore, you can pick and choose from many different sites, keeping what’s relevant for you.  You can use this information in a way that will lead you towards your desired life.

I was fortunate enough to have stumbled across a list, compiled by Brendan Baker,  of 100 of the best personal development sites.  I frequent a few of these sites already and think they provide great value.  I cannot wait to check out the ones I have not visited yet.

Brendan has removed all biases and created this list based strictly on which sites received the most traffic. 

How These 100 Kick Ass Personal Development Sites Were Ranked

Two tools were used.

First, Brendan used Alexa.  Alexa provides a general ranking of websites based on the number of visitors it receives.  Janice, over at Mostly Blogging happens to think Alexa is an invaluable tool.  She created an article full of useful information. You can read that here if you like.

According to Brendan, “A rank of 100,000 would mean that the site is the 100,000th most visited site on the internet. With the millions and millions of websites on the
internet, such a ranking is classified as pretty good! Just so you know, Google’s rank is #1, Facebook is ranked #2 and YouTube is ranked #3.”

The second tool used was Similar Web Rank. This is another online tool that nearly matched those of Alexa perfectly.

With that being said.  Here’s the list.
