Hi and welcome.
There are two things in my life that I have always been consistently passionate about since I was young; reading and learning.
Reading was my hobby when I was younger but now that I am older, I read not only as a hobby but also as a form of escapism from the stresses of life. I also read as a way to expand my knowledge. Reading, whether fiction or non-fiction has allowed me to learn about the world, life, people, history, different cultures, thoughts and opinions.
I consider myself to be a dedicated knowledge seeker. I read my first personal development book in my teens. I believe it was one of Dale Carnegie’s books, possibly How to Win Friends and Influence People. I think a lot of people who are just exploring personal development would have picked up any one of Carnegie’s books at some point. I still have this book as well as other books from Carnegie on my bookshelf.
Throughout the years though, I have expanded the range of books read on personal development and have explored topics such as success, productivity, business and many others from various authors. I have always had a deep need to learn new things, improve myself and my thinking and become a better person.
With the technology we have today, my learning source has expanded to online courses, blogs, podcasts and YouTube channels. It’s so easy to learn something new and pick up a new skill just by using your phone and searching for it on the internet.
I invest a lot of money in books and courses every year. In recent years, I’ve taken business courses, a performance coaching course and also NLP courses. I am currently a Licensed Master Practitioner of NLP.
I consider blogging to be my creative outlet. I started blogging in 2008 on the blogger platform; a blog dedicated to book reviews and reading activities.
This site however is really my online journal to record my journey to self-education. I write about my readings, learnings, and my pursuit of personal development.
