As someone who is passionate about personal growth, it’s exciting to discover the wide range of online courses available to people who want to work on their personal growth and development.
Online courses give you the convenience of working at your own pace, in the comfort of your own home.
I have thoroughly enjoyed writing this particular post. It shined a light on the amazing personal growth courses that are available. It also reinforced the importance of growing as a person.
I want to be upfront and let you know that I have not taken every course on this list myself. I have indicated in each section what I have done personally. I have however completed research on the courses that I have recommended. I’ve checked reviews, read through the course content available and researched instructors (several of whom I was already familiar with as you will see).
I have chosen courses that I think you will find beneficial for your personal growth.
Here are my current 10 picks for best online personal growth courses.

1. How to Break of Habit of Self-Doubt and Build Real Confidence
I thought I would start with one of my favorite websites for online courses – CreativeLive.
Come to think of it, I thought I’d start with my favorite online course as well!
At the beginning of this year, I completed the How to Break the Habit of Self-Doubt and Build Real Confidence online course by Mel Robbins.
I absolutely loved it and found it incredibly informative, helpful and a total game-changer in my life! Mel is a straight-shooter and says it like it is. She’s also funny and compassionate.
I wrote a review post on this course which you can read here.
In summary, this course consists of 16 video lessons and a workbook. Over 49k people have taken this course which is awesome.
CreativeLive has a system where you can access free elements of a course, so make sure you check that option out on the course page. If you are interested, you can then dive in and buy the course.
2. How to be Bold, Resilient and Better Than Ever
This is a new online course by Tabatha Coffey on CreativeLive.
The How to be Bold, Resilient and Better Than Ever course is getting some great reviews and I sat on the ‘live’ session and listened in for a while and was impressed with what I heard.
This course has 13 video lessons and a workbook.
The ‘live’ shows are one of the many great things about CreativeLive. You can listen to courses for FREE at certain times (click link to see a list of the free upcoming classes) or you can sample certain modules of a course for free. Sampling a module can help you decide if the course is something you want to invest in.
Just go into any course you are interested in and check what unlocked modules are available.
CreativeLive also has a gift option available on every course.
In case you were wondering, CreativeLive isn’t just about personal growth. The founder Chase Jarvis is a photographer so there are courses on photography, art and craft, music, writing, business, finance, and personal development.
3. Stress is Optional
The Stress is Optional course is run by Dr. Cynthia Ackrill and I have to say as someone who is dealing with a lot of stress at the moment, this course looks great! (I think this one might be the next course on my to-do list).
This CreativeLive course is comprised of 32 video modules and comes with 4 bonus PDF/workbooks.
At well over 4k students it also has a 100% recommendation in reviews which is always good.
If you are feeling stressed, the Stress is Optional course sounds like the ticket to turn things around for you.
4. Meditation for Everyday Life
As someone who struggles with meditation, I am intrigued by this course.
Meditation for Everyday Life is hosted by David Nichtern over on CreativeLive.
The course has 28 video lessons and 3 lots of bonus material. There are two unlocked videos you can view for free if you want to check them out.
With over 7K students it has a 100% recommendation rating.
Meditation for Everyday Life might just be the course you need if you have struggled with meditation or simply need more calm, peace and mindfulness in your life (and let’s face it who doesn’t need that).
5. Brendon Burchard
I am totally loving Brendon Burchard right now! You can find Brendon at his home on Brendon.com
I’m like a super fan (if there is such a thing).
I’m not even sure where I first discovered Brendon (I think it might have been one of his videos on Facebook) but I do know that he has become a huge positive influence in my life.
Brendon has a wealth of courses over on his site.
I am currently a member of the Personal Mastery Course and it’s excellent! I have access to some great courses (which I am currently working through in between working on this blog) as well as a new course every month.
You can sign up for $1 for access to certain course elements and then there is an ongoing monthly fee if you want to continue working through the courses and receiving new ones. The great part is you are not locked in, you can cancel at any time!
Brendon has a way of explaining things and talking to you that just makes sense. He’s calm yet full of energy, he’s a great speaker and an inspiring leader. He walks the talk and knows his stuff which is something I respect.
Brendon did something crazy good recently and released his amazing book “High Performance Habits” as a FREE audio series on Apple, Spotify, Stitcher and Overcast.
This freebie won’t last long (I think it will only be available for a couple of more weeks) so get in and download it while you can. High Performance Habits is a brilliant book that can really help you if you implement the strategies Brendon suggests.
If like me you prefer a hardcopy book that you can pick up and flick through when you need to, you can grab one from Amazon below.
6. Fire Starter Sessions Video Workshop
The Fire Starter Sessions Workshop over on Udemy (Start learning on Udemy today!) is run by Danielle LaPorte.

It is packed with 70 lectures in 3.5 hours of videos, exercises to complete as you go through the course and 20 supplemental resources.

7. Double Your Confidence and Self-Esteem

I couldn’t resist another one for the creatives! It also doesn’t hurt that I am a fan of Elizabeth Gilbert.
This Creativity Workshop has 20 lectures with 1 hour of video and 7 articles. It also includes exercises to complete as you go along.
This course is to get you moving in your creativity, so if you feel stuck this is the course for you. The great news is this course is NOT just for artists and writers.
Read the curriculum to see what is on offer. This course comes in 7 different languages and has over 15K students.
Personal growth is about trying new things. It’s about pushing ourselves, challenging ourselves, stepping out of our comfort zone and learning new skills.
It’s also about having fun!
MasterClass definitely allows you to try something different and have some fun with it. If you want to get your creative on, have a look at their range.
MasterClass instructors are experts in their field and by experts, I mean household name experts.
Writing classes by the likes of Aaron Sorkin (The Newsroom – man I loved that show!) and Shonda Rhimes (Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy – this woman really knows what she’s doing).
Acting classes by Helen Mirren and Samuel L. Jackson. Singing classes by Christina Aguilera and Reba McEntire. Coming soon are directing classes by Ron Howard and Martin Scorsese.
With MasterClass you can buy individual classes or go for an all access pass. They also have a gift page where you can buy someone a super cool gift. I think one of these courses would make an excellent gift for the right person!
Personal growth takes a little work but you don’t have to struggle by yourself. There is an amazing assortment of online courses at your disposal to help you along the way.
I hope one (or more) of these courses rocks your world and changes your life for the better.
