Personal Development for Success - Improving your Mind-Body-Spirit

Closing the gap between where you are now and where you want to be through personal development

If you are feeling tired, rundown or overwhelmed, then you might want to consider embarking on a personal development and conscious growth journey. They are lifelong journeys of self-improvement that will take you through every aspect of your life, awakening your heart, your mind and your spirit.

You can discover your purpose and climb out of that fog of fatigue and unknowing when you begin exploring yourself through:

Exercise Habits
Relationship with Money
Relationship with Others

The secrets to a happy life and the pursuit of happiness can be boiled down to the balance and harmony that you maintain in your work-life career orientation, the mind-body connection and spiritual-inner self reflections. In other words, closing the gap with where you currently standing and where you want to be.

My name is Anne Dessens and the purpose of this website is to speed up your success rate in life by sharing my own personal development and growth journey, plus benefits of self-help tips and tools that I have been consciously pursuing over the past 20 years. I have discovered that a successful lifestyle is one that is full of expanding and sharing.

It is important to work on all aspects of our lives if we want to continually experience joy and fulfillment. Personal development is the key to learning to know thy self and live fully in a state of positive self-esteem and self-love.

But in order to achieve and succeed we need to grow and change. And this expanding of ourselves is never an easy or painless road.

There is no road lonelier than the one of personal development.

Why is that so?

Because growth on a personal level can only happen alone and within your own mind. No one else can fully understand or relate to all that you have lived, learned, believed or experienced. When you feel lost and overwhelmed, you'll be off your path, the path your heart set out for you and the one you need to rediscover within you.

This is your life and so it is your personal journey. But you don't have to be alone in seeking self-improvement advice, tips, resources and information. You don't have to be alone in your quest for better health, diet and exercise. And you don't have to feel alone when you are feeling run down and exhausted. You don't have to do it alone.

That is the purpose of this website, to provide you with as much information as possible to accelerate your journey of growth, inner peace and joy by improving your thoughts, your actions and your own beliefs.

In my quest to be the best person I can be, I have read and listened to hundreds of books and audio programs about

  • diet
  • health
  • goal-setting
  • time management
  • parenting
  • relationships
  • intention-manifestation
  • financial success and freedom
  • exercise
  • running
  • spirituality
  • energy healing
  • meditations
  • conscious living positive thinking
  • confidence building

Overcoming our failures is the key to success. But why do we keep failing?

Motivational and personal growth speaker Brian Tracy says,
"Our most cherished beliefs and assumptions are at the root of all failure."

Success is simply the absence of failure. And failure is an ingrained habit.

- What unsuccessful thoughts, actions and emotions are holding you back from attaining your goals?

- Where are your weak spots in your thought processes that loop you back to square one instead of sending you towards the summit?

- What isn't going right in your diet efforts, your exercise program or your overall health?

- Why can't you get ahead financially despite your work-hard ethic and honesty?

- What is it that makes some people so lucky and successful in life?

If you are looking for this type of personal development advice, tips or learn how to overcome problem areas in your life whether it be in the area of your body, your mind, your emotions or your spirit, then I invite you to explore this website. Welcome and may your journey to success Begin!
