I became fascinated with the personal development world all the way back in high school.
Back then, I was an ambitious young kid with some big goals. Yet despite having no shortage of ambition, achieving these goals felt like an impossible task.
When it came time to actually take action and live up to the high standards that I had for myself, I’d always relegate back to old habits and never make any progress.
No matter how well-crafted my goals were, or how many motivational videos I watched, I simply could not bring myself to take action when it mattered.
This constant cycle of setting goals, not achieving them, and then doing the same thing a few months later became my calling card for the next six years of my life.
I was perpetually stuck on the self-improvement hamster wheel. And like many people on the self-improvement hamster wheel, it always felt like there was just something missing from my life.
It just didn’t make sense to me:
- Why was changing my behavior so hard?
- Why couldn’t I take action despite having the right intentions?
- Why did my motivation always seem to fade at the wrong time?
- What’s happening in the brain that’s pushing me back to old habits?
These are the sorts of questions that wracked my brain on a daily basis.
And I knew that I wasn’t the only one asking them, so I decided to go find the answers, apply them to my own life, and then share those insights with people just like me.
