There is a lot of crap on the internet – especially in the area of self-improvement.
Do a Google search for “self-improvement”, “self-help” or even “life coach” and you’ll find plenty of websites offering a quick fix or simple solution to everything that ails you.
There are a ton of web sites out there that will claim to help you find a better job, create better daily habits, or help you lose weight, but often times they’re just trying to make a quick buck by offering half-thought out advice. You might be even more discouraged and confused about where to turn after finding so many half-baked sites.
So where do you go when you’re really looking for sound advice and help?
There are some genuinely good sites out there. You can find them through careful research and by asking more respected authors, bloggers and speakers where they turn for help. Sites that keep turning up on popular blog rolls or “best of” lists are also good places to start.
One site I discovered a little while back is run by Jeff Sanders.
I’ve been following Jeff’s site for a little more than a year now and am consistently blown away by his insight, passion for self-improvement and energy. Jeff describes himself as “a goal achievement author and coach, personal development junky, host of The 5 AM Miracle Podcast, avid marathon runner, and passionate raw vegan” and his site is chock full of information on how to lead your best and most fulfilling life and is laid out so anyone interested in doing so can easily find what they’re looking for.
Take a look through Jeff’s blog, podcast and eBooks and you’ll be able to tell that everything he does is well-thought out, heavily researched and purposefully structured in a way that is easily accessible.
If you’re looking to do anything from finding ways to create simple positive daily habits to creating a plan to meet your most ambitious goals, check out Jeff’s site and podcast. You won’t be disappointed.
Recently, Jeff and I connected for a brief interview where we talk a bit about how he started his website and podcast and how he developed a passion for helping others meet their goals. The interview is relatively short (12 1/2 minutes), but in addition to talking about how he got his start, he also talks a bit about his own personal habits and how he makes the most of his day.
