Which self improvement teaching is the best?
To be honest, I used to be exactly like that.For many years I have engulfed myself in tons of books, audios, videos, seminars, and courses on a smörgåsbord of self improvement themes searching (subconsciously?) for this ultimate teaching too. I didn't find it, just like many others who were doing the same. And it is because of the simple reason that no such thing exists!!
But I did discover a bunch of really useful and effective teachings. And one of the biggest lessons I've learned is...
To have a balanced, all encompassing approach to personal development
Self improvement is not just about achieving as much as possible in the quickest time possible or developing the abilities to become the best, smartest or most effective superman or woman. Rather, real self improvement is about true lasting success. And this can only be achieved when there is total alignment between all the parts within us. Not just between the mind, soul, body and emotions, but also having harmony and agreement even within those elements. The narrow perspective of self improvement that most people have is that we have to fix something "out there" (our action or approach/external people) or "in here" (our internal state) in order to achieve success. That is an incomplete picture, which is why not many people achieve great success despite going through a lot of personal development work.
Why is Self-Improvement-Mentor different ?Self-Improvement-Mentor is not just about sharing tips for increasing productivity or becoming smarter. Rather the information here approaches self improvement through total alignment and integration of the whole being to support the outcome. True lasting success can only exist when all parts of the soul, mind, body and emotions are aligned. All information here approaches the development of personal growth through that perspective.

F + A = Success ??
Have you ever felt discouraged at the lack of progress you are making in self improvement? Feel that the results you’re getting don’t reflect the amount of effort you’re putting in?I know exactly how you feel. It can be really frustrating. However, putting aside all fancy stuff, essentially 2 things are needed for successful personal development : focus & approach. Those who seem to not succeed lack either one of the two (some have neither!) Focus means to follow through on your self improvement actions consistently without getting distracted along the way. I was guilty of lack of focus. I used to constantly search and load new information into my brain before I even had the chance to properly apply what I have learned. I never practiced something long enough to see the results. Sounds easy but it took me years to develop the discipline to focus on something long enough.
Approach means the strategies and teachings for personal development. Nowadays, everywhere you turn there seems to be a new self improvement book or program. Which to follow? Some are gold, some are junk, and many are basically preaching the same principles. I have experienced all 3 types, and you probably have too. Rest assured, there are no ‘junk’ here.
So, to achieve success, take care of these 2 areas first!! With the right approach and a 100% commitment, anything can be achieved.
If you keep moving towards your goal everyday, you will eventually reach it.
I hope to help you along your way by sharing what I have learned through the years. God knows how much frustration, anger and disappointments I’ve gone through in the past. In those days, I always wished that I had a mentor to guide me. Fortunately, I’ve had great help from some wonderful individuals along the way.
I hope you find the information here useful. Though our destinations may be the same, our paths to get there will definitely differ.
Happy reading (& applying) and I wish you all the best on your self improvement journey.
