My Top 50 personal development website for July 2014

I have a very huge passion for personal development and Self growth so this month I thought to list my fifty personal development sites. The methods used are subjective but they are currently the most reliable and widely acceptable. I used the alexa traffic rank system and the google page rank system. I have arranged the sites according to the alexa ranking. It was actually very difficult for me to come up with the list so I used the following combination of keywords; Motivation, Positive Thinking, Self Help, Self-Improvement, Self-Development, Personal Development, Self-Growth, Personal Growth, Personal Development and success, Personal Growth and Success. I hope you find it useful.

Conclusion
It is an honor for me to produce such useful information for my readers. If you are like me and enjoy the subject of personal development am sure you have found this list very useful. I will endeavour to produce another such list at the end of the year. I believe that this is one way of giving. I would also appreciate a link back from the webmasters of the above listed sites. I have also been trying to host a monthly carnival but have had challenges receiving submissions ever since blogcarnival.com went down. I will in the near future announce how to submit your carnivals for inclusion in the upcoming ones. Bye for now and remember to always “standout tall and be counted”.
