I find books/podcasts that are tangentially related to sobriety to really help. Jordan Peterson was very helpful for me to get my head right. I find anything Jung related to be of use on a personal development level - Speaking of Jung podcast is great. James Hollis is also a Jungian writer whose thoughts and writings really served me well.

This is our Book List, compiled by our members. Many of them are likely available as audible books:

I find books that arenít specifically about recovery but self help books on overall success within yourself and life to be good. I donít like to define myself by constantly flooding my mind with thoughts of not being a drinker. I just donít drink now and know that I can never drink like a normal person. Many people donít drink and thatís cool. I want to have a life besides that definition. (And believe me, I was a raging).

I think the King of all; ďThink and Grow RichĒ by N Hill to be a great start. It explains somewhere in the 12th to 15th chapter that the only reason he named it think and grow rich is because everyone thinks that money is the key to success in life. Which he fully explains that it is not about money but in attitude and thought process.
