Bigger, Better Self Improvement

pick-the-brainWhere to Find Pick The Brain:
Blog URL: http://www.pickthebrain.com/blog/
Category: Self Improvement, Motivation, Personal Development

Pick The Brain

Pick the Brain is taking on self improvement and motivation on the blog’s own terms—which just happens to be something bigger than your average self improvement blog.

Pick The Brain – Why You Should Go

The foundation of Pick the brain is that we are more than just a single focused topic. Effective self improvement and personal motivation comes only through attending to the whole mind and body (in a very experiential and ‘common sense’ way). To that end, there is a great deal of information, strategies, and habits and actions that affect what we do and why; and so, there are a great many topics to be discussed as you continually strive to achieve your best life and maintain it through personal growth. It is for this reason that the blog takes a very broad, community approach to self improvement—because there is hardly ever only one ‘right’ answer, or one person who knows it.

From the site:

“PickTheBrain.com diverges from traditional “self-help” by taking a broader approach. Rather than sticking to a small set of topics, the site covers anything related to self improvement. Any information that people can use to live more prosperous, satisfying lives is a potential article…

“Rather than proposing a set of easy answers, PickTheBrain recognizes the challenges involved with sustainable self improvement. The advice we provide is rooted in personal experience and common sense. This site will help you use the strength of your own mind to create the environment you need to thrive.”

To broaden the perspective and information resources for readers, the blog, maintained by the parent site which is also named Pick the Brain, is attended to by a team of regular contributors led by editor Erin Falconer. Additionally, the blog welcomes guest bloggers with quality articles of interest. The end result is a truly community-oriented blog and support center aimed to help you personalize your path to a prosperous, fulfilling life.

Summing Up Pick The Brain

Pick The Brain has taken a slightly different approach to motivation and self improvement, and in so doing has created one of the most useful, comprehensive, and effective personal development blogs on the web.

A Blog For Change

Category: Personal Development

The Change Blog

They say that in life change is inevitable; so best to be in the seat of control to capitalize upon it. This is a blog that can help.

The Change Blog – Why You Should Go

For Peter, the developer and original writer of the Change Blog, the catalyst for changing his life for the better came when he learned he’d be a father. That spurred in him a deep-seated dedication to change and personal development. As he did, he began chronicling his experience through his blog, in part to sort his own thoughts and in part to share and help others on similar paths.

Over time, this deeply insightful blog grew into a multi-authored blog for change and personal development, with a much deserved following. Today, it is a highly respected (again, deservedly so) resource for people who want to make the best of their lives and effect positive change for positive living.

Summing Up The Change Blog

Peter and his colleagues have built an excellent blog resource full of informed, thoughtful posts for positive personal change. This is a blog that will help you sort out what needs doing, center yourself and help you develop into the person you really want to be.

Eeyore’s Positive Tale

positively-presentWhere to Find Positively Present:
Blog URL: http://positivelypresent.typepad.com/
Category: Self Improvement, Personal Development

Positively Present

Sometimes a blog just resonates with you, and for me, this blog did. It’s a blog about positivity and living your best life now. Or, as author Dani puts it, “living happily ever after now”.

Positively Present – Why You Should Go

The fact that this blog resonates so clearly with me after having reviewed so many great blogs about personal development and positivity should really say something. This is a blog worth reading.

It’s a bit tough to put your finger on it, but there is just something different enough about Dani’s approach to positive, present living that makes it so resonant. Maybe it’s her practical, real-world application and lessons learned from life; maybe it’s her dedication not only to positivity, but positivity in the PRESENT…not for some time put off and scheduled in the future; or maybe it’s her sincerity and honesty (I mean, are you willing to admit what a bitch you were in high school?). Whatever it is, it’s working, and it will captivate you, too.

…now, assuming you are still in a quandary as to how this post title fits in, here’s a bit in Dani’s own words…

“Positively Present is Dani, a twenty-something who, after years of living under a dark cloud of woe-is-me, has decided this will be the year she focuses on the positive. This will be the year she lives in the present, turning all of her attention toward making her life more positively aware. Dani is a former Eeyore learning to live positively in the present moment. Working hard to embrace the idea of “living happily ever after now,” Positively Present focuses on all things positive — quotes, books, stories, songs, situations, people, blogs, websites, ideas, images, notions, emotions. Anything and everything positive has a home here.”

Summing Up Positively Present

What more can I say? The energy and sincerity of this blog will turn any Eeyore’s tale into one of positive, good living in the here and now.

Finding The Strength Within

alphanistaWhere to Find Alphanista:
Blog URL: http://www.alphanista.com/
Category: Women, Personal Development, Self Improvement

Alphanista

Somehow being a strong person, particularly if you are a woman, has gotten a bad rap over the decades (centuries, millennia?). Not so anymore. Maryann Reid is going where few dare to tread—drawing out strong people and especially strong women, helping them to embrace that strength and capitalize it, and boldly saying that it’s okay to be a strong, independent person.

Alphanista – Why You Should Go

Alphanista is everything that I’ve just described above. It is a blog primarily focused on women and helping them achieve better life change by embracing the bold gifts that they’ve been given—or even developing the meek in the interest of self improvement and advancement. Is it an all-men barred, women’s lib type blog? No. Alphanistas have nothing against men, but they have everything for any person bettering themselves and making it in this life in confident and inspiring ways.

As Maryann says, the blog brings out the topics that no others dare to discuss.

“Alphanista™ focuses on provocative content that you won’t normally find on other blogs. Known as someone whose opinion differs from the masses, I wanted a site where people can come to and breathe. Understand that they are not alone, that it is okay not to be perfect, or follow a set of etiquette rules for achieving success. Topics covered include dating, relationships, sex, careers, food, news, and any little thing that can spark new thought or perspective. So many times, what we read is about how to be perfect, how to change ourselves, when in reality life will always be a continuous process of change. It won’t ever stop. You can come here for fresh ideas on how to keep moving your life forward from where you are right now by focusing on the “alpha” or stronger self inside you.”

Summing Up Alphanista

It stands to reason that this blog should target and support women, considering that historically being an “alpha” female has been much disdained; but Maryann’s topics are enlightening for all manner of people, personalities, and confidence types. In fact, she even has a post to help you determine if Alphanista is the right place for you. Regardless of who you are, there is no doubt that you will find inspiration and confidence in this blog.

Recap Review, March 27 Edition

Our week started strong with posts of personal growth and development, as well as blogs to help you along your entrepreneurial way.  From there, we moved on to an interesting community blog project and rounded out the week with a few good laughs; all in all, just the way a week should go, from productivity to kicking back with a little entertainment!

Week In Review, March 28

  • We kicked the week off with a purpose and joined May Anne Fisher on her blog for entrepreneurs and online business folk.  Mary Anne has a top-notch strategy full of focus on helping you live your most passionate and profitable life at i Profit on Purpose.
  • The personal growth trend continued over at Vlad Dolezal’s An Amazing Mind blog, where he explores the topic of personal development while helping you to sort through the information overload that can so easily overtake that topic.
  • Matt Ringer is a small business owner with experience to offer, and he’s making a big deal of it!  Make your small business a big deal, too, with the help of Matthew and his SmallBizBee blog.
  • It’s refreshing to see the younger bloggers who have figured out the keys to life and personal development relatively early-on; top of the list is Celestine Chua and her EMBRACE Living blog.  Join Celes and learn to live your best life, one of both passion and financial success!
  • We turned a little away from the topics of business and personal development to enjoy a community blogging project dedicated to self-portrait photgraphy.  In Cinq is more than a photoblog, it’s a place to explore the people of the world and get to know them in just nine words.
  • To wrap the week, we gave ourselves a few laughs over at the Tiny Minds blog.  It’s a blog that’s so easily relatable, making humorous work of fighting back against mankind’s propensity for dashing rational thought.

That’s it for this week, but also be sure to step back in time and see last week’s adventurous blog reviews.  And do be sure to leave a comment (anywhere along the blog here) so that we can review your blog, or any of those you think are upstanding and worth the trip over!

The Personal Growth Of An Amazing Mind

Where to Find An Amazing Mind:
Blog URL: http://vladdolezal.com/blog/
Category: Personal Growth, Self improvement

An Amazing Mind

Vlad Dolezal has an amazing mind—and he’s spilling its contents all over his blog. A psychology-enthusiast at heart, Vlad is using his blog to share and explore the topic of personal growth in the most efficient way he knows.

An Amazing Mind – Why You Should Go

In reality, Vlad understands that all minds are amazing; so no, his blog is not a self-indulgent introspective on the wonders of Vlad and his brain, but rather on the wider concept of the human mind and learning to develop it to an optimal level for personal growth and success. Vlad’s posts are highly insightful, down-to-earth, and hard-hitting. Unlike many personal growth blogs, however, Vlad takes his a step further, understanding that all too often personal growth blogs are too much talk and not enough action, and so his posts focus on the actions that we can take to actually experience personal growth as well, rather than just learn all that we can about it.

Summing Up An Amazing Mind

In many ways, Vlad’s blog is a distillation of much of the best personal growth and empowerment information that is out there. Vlad has read as much on the subject as he can place hands on, and brings the best of it to his blog, along with personal experiences and practices in self improvement. In addition, he offers up interviews with some of the most respected writers and bloggers covering the topic (including Tim Brownson, who we also reviewed here). He has also written an eBook himself that is a collection of the best pearls of personal growth wisdom.

Vlad’s blog covers the topic of psychology and personal development from a number of angles. He’s got some very practical advice and examples, but he also works to build a community to expand the line of thinking, as Vlad also recognizes that the dynamic human mind is one that works in many mysterious ways. To learn more about what might work for you, join the discussion when you

Imaginif BlogWhere to Find Imaginif:
Blog URL: http://www.imaginif.com.au/category/blog/
Category: Personal Development, Parenting

Imaginif

Imaginif…it’s the simple statement that precedes every effort at the blog that bears the name. In itself, it is a compelling statement. Combined with the rest of what’s going on at Imaginif and its parent site, it is a powerful statement indeed.

Imaginif – Why You Should Go

Imaginif is the blogging extension of Australian therapist Megan Bayliss‘s website, also named Imaginif. The website and the blog center on primarily two initiatives that stand strongly together and alone, but in the end go hand in hand.

“Imaginif…personal development and child community protection were serious business”

For Megan, it is. Megan has leveraged her experience as a parent and her experience in social work and therapy to develop an innovative program to empower children and keep them safe. She has coupled that with an innovative work at home program, one which she invites everyone to participate in. The icing on the cake is her blogging and work in the realm of personal development—something you can benefit from on its own, or in combination with these other components.

Altogether Megan Bayliss is doing some very important work, work that we all need to be aware of as people who care for and about children (whether you are a parent or not). Her business also gives her a way to extend that important work far beyond her own scope. Whether you subscribe to the business end of her blog or not, there is more here that you need to know, and more that you can do to better the lives of children as you better yourself.

Summing Up Imaginif

Megan’s work and her blog create an interesting symbiosis of opportunity and awareness. It’s a whole lot of goodness all in one place, and an experience you need to have to fully understand it all. Take some time to explore Megan’s site and her blog, and see how much more you can do for yourself and young children everywhere.
