about ian unleashYou were born to express the talents and gifts that you possess within you. There’s no one else like you on this planet and there will never be anyone like you again. It’s time to embrace your power and share your potential.

Personal Development isn’t easy. It’s not hard either. It’s just a process. One where you begin to take 100% responsibility for yourself and your life. That means your whole life: your state of mind, your health, your finances, your habits, your relationships, your emotions and more.

This site will help make your personal development quest a little smoother. Just a little bit easier. Life doesn’t have to be a constant struggle.

True personal development isn’t about quick fixes and patch jobs. Self growth and discovery takes time, patience, persistence, humility, humor, and a good dose of love. Not only for yourself, but for your friends, colleagues, neighbors and really all the world. I don’t mean to sound cheesy but it’s true.

This site is a conversation. Between me and you. Between all the people that visit here each month. The more we engage the more we’re engaged. Present to the presence. Aware of our awareness. Anchoring into our lives a new way of being, seeing and doing.  With every word read, thought about, and tested we can discover our own personal truths. So make sure to join the conversation and leave me comments and suggestions whenever you can.

So Where To Begin Your Personal Development Journey?

There’s already tons of personal development material for you to choose from on the site. In the right sidebar are some of the more popular articles that get tons of traffic and shares.

The last year for me brought about some of the greatest personal revelations that I’ve ever experienced and some of the best writing that I’ve ever done.

I’ve broken down the articles on this starting point list into three main categories:

  1. Personal Development
  2. Inspiration and Motivation
  3. Law of Attraction

So with that in mind, here’s my recommended places to start for your personal development journey:

Personal Development Articles

Personal Development and Zombies: Personal development and zombies don’t usually get brought up in the same sentence. But in my crazy mixed up world somehow they’ve gotten smooshed together.

Personal Development Lady Gaga Style: We watch them on TMZ. We read about them on Perez. We talk about them to our friends, family and co-workers. The truth is we’re obsessed with celebrities.

Out of nowhere she burst onto the scene capturing people’s hearts and the medias attention. Whether you love her or hate her she’s here to stay. Catchy lyrics, outrageous costumes, and bad dance moves. What’s not to love?

4 Simple Ways To Push Past Your Boundaries: I heard an interesting story the other day about Koi fish. Not sure if it’s an urban legend or not. It said that Koi fish will only grow as large as their environment will allow for. For example if you place a Koi in a fish bowl it’ll only grow up to about three inches. If you took that same fish and placed it in a backyard pond it’ll grow to about eighteen inches. Most amazing though, is that if you place that same fish in a large lake, the Koi will grow to be about three feet or more.

Our Consciousness creates creation. What we think about we bring about.

We all have our unique voice. Our voice is part of a collective song. True happiness will only come when we sing our song for the benefit of others.

PRESENCE – “We have Power.”

Presence is present in this very moment. Now is the moment of our being. This is where the power is. When we live in the present moment time melts away and our brilliant essence shines forth in all existence.
