I personally got here through struggles with gaming addiction and the resolve to pick my life back up. The goal was to become the type of man that I would be proud of. I am still walking down the path, but I have covered quite some distance since then.
It seems to me that many of us got started with their personal development due to a significant amount of discomfort in their lives.
This made me wonder, what was it for you? Or did you get here by chance?
