One day I decided to change my life.
To become healthy, wealthy and popular—just like that. Well, it took some pondering on my purpose first.
Now my automatic online business gives me a 7 figure income; I’m stress-free and I don’t need to work anymore…
Just kidding. My life is not a fairy tale.
The problem was… I didn’t know how to change. I am still not 100% sure I know.
I started to search the ways out to a bright future. I faced another obstacle—the only advice to change someone’s life includes half mystical methods, such as affirmations, law of attraction, visualizations, “manifesting”, meditation and a lot of similar stuff.
Yikes! I’m pragmatic, a “down to earth” person. I don’t believe such crap.
But skeptics had no answers for me. All they had to say was: “Live your life as it is and hope it will not get worse”.
Another problem (life seems to be full of them, doesn’t it?)—I didn’t believe I could change. I am still not 100% sure I can.
So I searched more and I came to some conclusions:
– Despite the ridiculous language I found, there is something to this whole “hocus-pocus” stuff
– The big gurus’ formulas are not directly applicable to my situation of an extremely busy bread-winner, parent, spouse and Christian
– The big gurus are not so great to mimic after all. Integrity is such a forgotten virtue nowadays
– If I do nothing, nothing will change. Ever. And because I desire the change I’ll try anything
So I’m trying.
And I got some results. Changes. Things I never did before:
I lost some weight and I’m the fittest I’ve ever been in my life.
I helped my son to go from mediocre grades to finishing a school year with honors.
I more than doubled my savings.
I became a self-published author.
I started a couple of blogs and a website.
I read about 66% faster than a year ago.
I have friends all around the globe.
I wake up every day with hope.
It’s possible to change my life.
It’s possible to change your life.

It’s great to see how personal development has impacted your life Michal,
It has also been a major change agent in mine and I can hardly imagine what life would be like without it.
I’m curious to see you grow over the coming years.
Btw, I do also believe there’s a lot of BS surrounding personal development but if you want to read more into visualization I’d recommend psycho-cybernetics by Maxwell Maltz (this has greatly impacted my life)
It’s basically about how our mind determines our life
Anywaay, take care man!
Thanks for stopping by Simon.
I find your blog very interesting, but I can’t comment, till you will my first comment out of the spam queue (Aksimet doesnt’t like my domain).
I read Maltz’s book. It made me to start visualization habit.
I’m curious too 😉
Haha, yeah I found your comment in the spam queue! (don’t check that one that often)
How come askimet filters your site as spam? You should send them a mail or something that you’re legit, just my advice 😉
Anyway, great meeting you.
