  3. Zen Habits – Smile, breathe and go slowly
  4. Craig Harper – a tell-it-like-it-is Aussie Coach

  6. The Change Blog – a community blog on personal change

  8. Manifest Your Potential – Find Your Gifts and Talents, Discover Your Dream Job, Career or Business
  9. Dr. Phil – He tells it like it is to help you “Get Real”
  10. Oprah – Live Your Best Life

    Great list I will be checking them out and hopefully in six months my website will be in the top five.

    Thanks for the list

    Good morning!

    Thanks a lot for honoring me by putting my website in your Top 10 list!

    I became a regular reader of your RSS feed on the very day I got a link from your Time to Act article, and I just want to say that I’m really glad to see someone else starting a personal development site.

    Sandwidged between Steve and Gleb, I’m honored!

  4. Wow! Thanks for including me amongst the amazing. I’ll keep making it great, and I hope you’ll keep enjoying.

    Hi there!

    Wow. I’m truly honoured to be counted amongst your Top 10. I don’t pretend to be in the same league as Steve, Scott and Gleb so just being mentioned in the same list is truly encouraging. I’m surprised I rank higher than both Dr Phil and Oprah!

    Feeling like a celeb now… 🙂

    Seriously, thanks for reading.

    Thanks for this list – I see my “main man” Phil at #4; you have a winner there, that’s for sure. Yours ain’t too shabby either 🙂

    The more positive vibes, the better – that’s what fuels my “half-full” fire. Thanks for more fuel! All the best.

I can’t remember when was the last time i’ve overcome such a good blog that almost all articles/posts were interesting and wouldn’t regret spending my time reading it. I hope you will keep up the great work you are doing here and i can enjoy my everyday read at your blog.

    Wonderful blog and great idea for a post. Even more impressive is that you were able to cut the list down to a top 10. Now the rest of us have something to shoot for.

    Maybe when you expand the list to the top 100 my blog will find it’s way on there 😉

    Keep up the good work!
