Before starting this blog and getting into self-confidence and personal development, I would often spend countless hours reading books in order to help refocus my mind and to change my beliefs into one that was more positive.
We’re very fortunate that we live in a time where the internet makes reaching out for help as easy as sending a tweet or an email. Furthermore, we also have the opportunity to reach out to others who are in the same place as us. We’re no longer left feeling hopeless or lonely and can connect with people and share stories that was never quite possible to do just a decade ago beyond attending focus groups.
Because of this, acquiring and learning new skills and information has never been easier. Having since started this blog, I soon realized the benefit of it, having been fortunate enough to connect with a handful of people on the same topic. And i’m sure there are dozens more who i’ve yet to meet.
Here are 16 personal development blogs I come across recently, which really impressed me and have decided to list them in this blog post for your benefit.
