“If you don’t love what you’re doing, what do you have to lose by stopping?”

What is this blog about?

My mission for creating this blog is to introduce proven self-improvement techniques, psychological research, and my own personal experience into helping YOU and million of others reach their dreams: no matter if it is passing your next exam or creating a national non-profit organization. My blog will cover the best of self-improvement from finding your motivation to better management of your time.

Who am I and why should anyone listen to me?

My name is Davis Nguyen and I write this blog. I was born and raised in in Atlanta, Georgia, but currently live in and study at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. I like to learn new hobbies, read inspirational books, and spend weekends playing poker, watching movies, and socializing with friends.

Before discovering the power of self-improvement, I was an underachiever, didn’t care much about my health, and had a hard time speaking up.

In 2005, I picked up my first self-improvement book and the rest was history.

What have I achieved?

Here are some of the many goals I have set for myself and their results:

  • Goal: Win my first local Yugioh tournament
    • Results: Won my first of 50+ local tournaments, First Place in Regional Qualifier, Qualified for and Competed in Yugioh Nationals (06,07,08). 2007-lasted until Round 8 of a 10 rounds (age 15).
  • Goal: Overcome the freshmen 15, lower my blood sugar level, and BMI without going to the gym.
    • Results: Lost 25 pounds in four months by changing my diet and route to class (no workout routine).

I want to get to know you!
