Personal Development / Self-Help

The Beachbody Game Plan event in Chicago, IL in January 2010 sparked my interest in personal development and self-help. It has set me on an incredible journey in rediscovering who I am and what I can do with my life. Yes, this all happened in a WEEKEND!

In addition to the information at the Game Plan, what really sparked my interest was the personal development. Who you are. Developing your personal philosophy. What makes you tick. Why you do what you do. Six months ago, I never had a rhyme or reason of doing things. I did things because they needed to be accomplished. After the Game Plan, my mindset was different - work on MYSELF. Fitness, health, nutrition, self-deveopment, motivational audio, supplemenation.

Prior to the Game Plan, I was listening to Anthony Robbins audio CD, "Personal Power." I listened to it for months, and it motivated me. At the Game Plan, I received the Jim Rohn audio cd "Building Your Network Marketing Business" and that blew my mind!!! I was amazed by it's simplicity. The combination of both completely changed my life!

I began a journey of personal development, seeking motivational audio and self-help books to motivate myself and change my life. What I collected was a wealth of personal knowledge which can completely alter your life and motivate you beyond belief.

I bought books, audio, ebooks, and I have read and listened to them daily. It has helped me in more ways than I have ever expected.

Beachbody CEO Carl Daikeler has said, "It starts with you." So I started working on myself. Personal development, eating nutritionally, taking care of myself.

The poet Goethe has many motivational quotes, and I recently came across this one which says, "Let everyone sweep in front of his own door, and the world will be clean." In other words, organize your own life. I remembered a quote by actor Keifer Sutherland in the movie 'A Few Good Men' which says this in an extremely simple way: "Get your house in order!"

I was an avid reader as a child. In high school and college, I only read what was necessary for my classes. After college, I chose not to read. Today, at age 40, I have made it a point to read daily. Inspiring myself, in addition to inspiring others.

Personal development and self-help asisst you in designing a road map for your life that will take you on a journey beyond your wildest dreams. I highly recommend it.

It will change your life, if you want it to.
