Fundamental of Achievement

Personal
Growth

If you want to live a better life, you must become a better person.  That’s why personal growth is one of the key elements to a life well lived.  Very few—if any—of us are born into ideal situations.  Yet all of us have the ability to become worthy of attaining our dreams and aspirations.

What Is Personal Growth?

Personal growth is the process of changing attitudes, and/or behaviors in order to enhance the quality of one’s life.  This typically includes improving habits, skills, and thinking patterns.  Such self development is  used to unlock human potential in the pursuit of goals.

My Experience

I’m climbing my way toward mastery.

More than anything, I just need a few more years.

I already have a fairly sophisticated system.  But for me, figuring out what I really want takes reps.

I use my goals to carve out a life purpose.

Points of emphasis respond to change in both me and in the world.  But all the while, they pull me forward.

I create goals then mold my character to the traits that those objectives require.  My goals help me discover the man I need to be so that I can do the things I want to do.

So far, they’ve served me well.  Long may it continue.

Good Life Foundation

Goals are fundamental.  They are an essential pillar of a good life.  Without them, it’s easy to get blown to and fro by the winds of the world.

Where Goal Setting Fits in a Good Life

Goals are one of the most important pieces of the Achievement puzzle.

For me, they’re a “Tier 2” concept, on the same level as Mindset, Habits, Growth, and High Performance.

It is also closely tied to practices like Journaling.

nothing is handed to you

what happens to you is not as important as what you’re willing to do about it

 two sides of personal growth… developing virtues and shedding vices 

  • virtues – character traits, skill building, etc.
  • vices – sacrifice the weakest parts of yourself on the altar of your future success

What You’ll Find Here

For the time being, this site is mostly just a data dump.  Over time, it may become more useful to the outside observer.  Who knows?

k

My Own Research

I am the definition of a know-it-all.  Hopefully, someone else can use that to their advantage.  These pages are to cataloging my learnings.

Opinions of Same

I am a master of unsolicited advice.  Frankly, it’s annoying.  An outlet for self-expression, I hope this site will help me become a better listener.

Video Breakdowns

I consume hundreds of hours of video training, keynotes, and other education content.  Timestamping content helps me learn and teach others.

Top 7 Pieces to the Personal Growth Puzzle

01

Self Brainwashing

Quality content is the first pillar of SEO.  If you want to be known about a topic, you need content about it.  Nowadays, that content has to be the best.  That trend will only continue into the 2020s—and beyond.

02

Habits & Rituals

Vishen may be the man I look up to more than any other.  His mission of education reform may be the most important of any of my heroes.  Over the long-term he may be the favorite for the top spot.

03

Self Awareness

Naruto is the most inspiring character I’ve ever come across.  What I’ve learned from him is unique.  And yet, his story seems inevitable, almost perfect.  Watching Naruto, I felt as if it was written from my own heart.

04

Goal Setting

To this point, I might have learned more from Brian Johnson than any other person on the planet.  He has created a library of classic and modern teachings on becoming the best you and living your best life.

05

Motivation

Brendon Burchard is one of the world’s leading high performance coaches.  Before I met Gary Vee, I filled my house with Brendon’s voice almost everyday.  His content was the first I used to brainwash myself.

06

Happiness

Nahko is probably my favorite musician today.  I use his music to heal and connect with my highest self.  There are others I use in the same way.  Yet much Naruto’s story, Nahko’s music often feels written just for me.

07

Biohacking

Tom is one of the dark horses for top spot over the long term.  Similar to Vishen, much of that has to do with the weight of his mission.  He wants to “break people out of the Matrix” through entertainment.  Smart and strong.

My Progress So Far

More than anyone else:

Gary is the reason I started creating hero profiles.

Now that I’ve started, I see that his profile may be less useful than my other heroes to other people.  But his will likely always remain the most important to me.

I fucking love this dude.  He changed my life.

More accurately, he teamed up with Nahko to save my life.

I’m not quite sure when I found him.  I featured him all the way back in one of my first posts for Greensboro SEO Pro.

Why SEO?

For the time being, this site is mostly just a data dump.  Over time, it may become more useful to the outside observer.  Who knows?

I don’t claim to be an expert on anyone I write about.

Hell, I hardly claim to be an expert on myself.

These profiles are largely for me.  I use them to record and reference.  In the future, I may make them more meaningful to the outside observer.

No guarantees.  Let’s start small.

Career Path

This is an odd way to put it.  But it’s the only phrase that captures the entire bucket.  Gary thinks like a Scorpio.

Going For the GoAt

Many of my heroes talk about company culture.  Gary’s idea of a “Honey Empire” is one of the best.

Experts Don’t Exist

Most people know Gary as “that social media guy.”  Makes sense.  He’s one of–if not the–best at it on the planet.
