Self Improvement has Changed My Life.


Most of my life I've been a night owl.  I'd often stay up late and watch TV.

During the 90s, infomercials, which promised riches inundated the local channels.  They played in the early hours of the morning, and I enjoyed them.  Such as Carleton Sheets 'No Money Down' real estate program.  Or Don Lapre's 'tiny classified ads' course.

Tony Robbins 'Personal Power' was my favorite.  His set of audiotapes promoted a better life, improved relationships, optimal health, and more.

Dead end temp jobs were my existence at the time.  My weekly paychecks were less than $250.  Seeing these ads gave me daydreams of a better life for my family and myself.  Financially, we are poorer than middle class.

Mr. Robbin's audiocassettes were outside of my price range.  However, his 'Awaken The Giant Within' book was on sale at Barnes and Noble.  I purchased it.

I never finished the book, but I did research his material and sought the individuals he considered experts in their respective fields.  He would quote them in his book and have them speak at his seminars.

One being John Gray, author of 'Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus.' Barbara DeAngelis, author of 'How To Make Love All the Time,' also interested me.  I didn't have a girlfriend at the time and desperately wanted one.  I read and listened to those two authors, books, and audiobooks.  My mother, sister, and future girlfriends were the recipients of the poorly applied techniques I learned.  

Over the years, I would fall in and out of consuming this type of self-improvement content.   Presently, I  do so almost daily.   It feeds my soul.    It makes me feel like a better, smarter version of myself.   

With a constant negative news cycle, watching TV, and playing video games loaded with sex and violence, there's no better time to surround oneself with positivity.   I prefer podcasts.   There are some which are short and others with are longer.   My recommendations for shorter content: Rob Dial's Mindset Mentor, Sean Croxton's Quote of the Day, Raul Villacis Daily Edge, Robin Sharma's The Mastery Sessions.

Longer content; Tony Robbins podcast, the Dean Graziosi show, Lewis Howes School Of Greatness, Brendon Burchard's The Brendon Show, John Lee Dumas Entrepreneur on Fire, finally the Gary Vee Audio Experience.

My favorite, in challenging my thinking from the status quo; the James Altucher Show.

Some of my choices fall into the business realm.   There are still gems of knowledge that can be found here.

Have any suggestions?   Drop them down below.    This type of information has changed my life, and I hope it does the same for you.

Bob Marley One Love Spoiler Review-$93 Million Later

  I enjoyed Bob Marley's One Love, a 2024 biopic based on the legendary musician's life. The highlights for me were Kingsley Ben-Adir's and Lashana Lynch's performances as Bob and Rita Marley. Ben-Adir oozed charisma in playing Bob, and Ms. Lynch made me feel their deep relationship bond. The film is a musical in a way, as several of Bob's classic songs were performed.   One Love also weaves the stories and motivations for classic songs, such as 'Three Little Birds,' with Mr. Marley putting it together in the backyard of his home in Kingston.  Video version of my review.    I hummed 'Exodus' days after watching the movie.   This beautifully shot movie details several critical moments in the singer's life, such as an assassination attempt, his extended stay in the UK, and his first concert back in Jamaica, where he had warring political figures make peace on stage. The movie's budget was $70 million, and I assume it cost another $70 million to
