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.

Recommended Movies & TV. June-December 2022 and Overall Favorites of 2022.

Check out this episode! YouTube Version These are my favorite movies and TV show from June-December 2022. June Insidious 1 & 2 (Amazon & Netflix) I'd never seen the Insidious movies. However, my younger brother watched them and told me they were creepy(which piqued my interest). In June, the first part was available on Prime Video, and the sequel and third films were on Netflix. I binged all three, but I preferred the first two as they wrapped up the Lambert family storyline.    Black Phone (movies) The next Blumhouse movie on this list. The movie pundits I follow talked about this Black Phone's great word of mouth from early screenings. Saw this in theaters and was amazed at Ethan Hawke's villainous performance. His 2nd turn as a bad guy in 2022(first in Moon Knight on Disney+ months earlier, but much better here). Umbrella Academy S3 (Netflix) I like the Umbrella Academy and its different take on the superhero genre. The protagonist dysfunctional family consists o
