The Blog For People Who Want To Achieve Their Full Potentials. Seriously.
Most people lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them.Henry David Thoreau
When we were kids, we dreamed big dreams. We’re so full of life and energy and passion that nothing seems impossible. We were confident, courageous, and impatient to claim our stake in the world.
But life happens.
And somewhere between that dreaming, ambitious kid and who you are today, you’ve lost your fire. You forgot what it felt like to “feel alive.” Somehow, you found yourself living a “comfortable life” knowing you’re not living up to your potential.
Because of this, you may feel stuck, frustrated, or overwhelmed. And for most people, they continue living a life of, as Thoreau says, quiet desperation.
Hold that thought and imagine this for a second. In the middle of the dark, you were walking one night and on the ground, you found a magic wand. On it were inscribed the words…
“Wave the wand and live the life you truly desire.”
So you did. The next day, you wake up with a warm feeling of excitement. You can’t wait to get up and enjoy your day! You prepare for work knowing that you’ll love every single second of it.
Deep inside, you know that the work you do impacts the lives of others and leaves them better than they were before. In short, you make money doing what you love!
Add to that the fact that every area of your life fills you with a great sense of joy and satisfaction. You’re making progress, your relationships are healthier than ever before, your financial problems are taken care of.
You set bigger and bigger goals and you keep on hitting them.
You travel with your loved ones, experience different cultures, and surround yourself with people who inspire you to grow.
All the frustrations you’ve been feeling about yourself and your life are gone. Every stress you carry on your shoulders, lifted. And life gives you challenges you enjoy!
In short, the world is your oyster.
Right now, you may find that “ideal life” inconceivable. You may feel stuck, alone, and lost on what you need to do. That’s okay!
This Blog Is Your Magic Wand!
But unlike the wand earlier, things won’t happen overnight.
Instead, you and I are going to take an approach that most people often discount. Something that’s proven and tested, yet so overlooked.
We’re going to take a long-term view in building the life we truly desire.
Life is an infinite game. We’re not here to “win.” Meaning we’re not playing so that others may lose. We’re not working to gain advantage over other people. And we’re not playing to “prove our worth.”
It’s what society dictates. But not us. After all, life isn’t a zero-sum game.
We’re here to keep playing. That means, we play with a purpose of reaching our fullest potentials so we can inspire others to do the same.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”Marianne Williamson
The “reaching” of our full potential is a never-ending process. It’s forever going and growing until we’re not here anymore. Until it’s time to pass the baton.
To do that, I’m going to write topics under these categories:
- Self-Leadership: or the ability to influence yourself. The missing piece from all the self-help advice out there. While the world teaches “hacks” and “tricks” and “schemes” to gain short-term results, we’ll focus on principles.
- The Art of Fulfillment: Finding joy in less but better. Reminding ourselves that we’re not here to “achieve happiness.” We’re here to reach “fulfillment.”
Hi, I’m Jeric!
I’m not an expert nor a guru. And I don’t claim to be. In fact, I’m a pretty normal guy… only gifted with an insatiable curiosity and appetite for learning. Just like you, I’m on a journey to achieve the best that I can be. And I love it!
One thing I can say is that I love my life. All the ups and down, the stops and go, the highs and lows. Riding the roller coaster of life is what makes it exciting.
I have a degree in Clinical Psychology and I’m a certified NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) Practitioner. I’m also a digital marketing enthusiast, and a business growth strategist.
I’m an author of 3 books, and right now, I help people from all over the world create their own book. Here are some other things you should know about me:
- I’m a human potential enthusiast and have been studying it for almost 10 years now… I keep on searching and now, I write to share what I’ve learned with you…
- I’ve read more than 400+ books and 1,000+ articles on the subject of psychology, influence, entrepreneurship, mental health, and so on…
- I have certification as an Eriksonian Hypnotherapist and as a Life Coach
- I’m a podcast host of The Business Growth Podcast
- I created the Rapid Book Creation System™ and I help experts around the world create their book in 72 hours or less.
My greatest passion is learning and sharing what I know. So, I’m on a mission…
To Inspire 1,000,000 People To Reach Their Full Potentials
This blog and all other contents I create is the by-product of this mission. I’ve been sharing bits and pieces of everything I’ve learned from reading hundreds of books, interviewing high-achievers, and consuming hundreds of articles. But only to a few people in my circle.
I’ve put in thousands of hours learning about human behaviors and what makes us tick. And I’ve decided it’s time to show my work to the world and let others (you) find it. Then maybe, you’ll decide to go on this journey with me.
I hope you enjoy reading this blog as much as I enjoyed writing it. If you’ll notice, the way I write is different. I write the way I speak and I use simple, everyday words. No big jargons. And it’s because I speak to you as a friend.
I’m in your corner. And it’s just more fun writing that way.
I wish you all the best in life. See you around!
Live an inspired life,
