The Definitive Guide to Self Improvement

By: Brian Kim - August 28, 2008

If you're a first time visitor, I highly encourage you to click here to learn more about this site to see how it can TRULY change your life like no other site can and how millions around the world are already benefiting and getting the VERY BEST VALUE out of it! Thank you for visiting!

One of the biggest changes I wanted to make on this site was to simply define it better via the tagline. The first tagline – “Invest in yourself and make it happen” came as a result of when I stumbled onto the idea of investing in yourself while reading a book somewhere and it just stuck with me. It was a very good visual so I added to it and that’s how I came up with the first tagline for the site.

However good it was though, I found myself wanting something much more simplistic, something much shorter, and something that would easily define and reflect the nature and topic of the site once it was read.

And that’s what led me to create the new tagline for BrianKim.net as you can currently see right now on the site logo (if you can't see it, you may have to refresh the page as your browser is probably loading up the old logo from its cache): BrianKim.net - The Definitive Guide to Self Improvement.

It’s simple, to the point, very encompassing, and I think it gives a much better feel and a clearer grasp as to what the site is all about and it says it in a “cleaner” way so to speak.

Those of you who know my writing and have read my articles for some time know this is what I strive for – to come up with the definitive answers to the questions everybody seems to gloss over. I hated reading the same old material out there. I hated the fact that there were issues out there that left people hanging. I wanted new, fresh, logical, definitive, answers to the questions nobody seemed to really want to answer.

It’s the theme that permeates all my articles, books, and soon my new service (which I will post about later next week). It’s what led me to write How to Find What You Love to Do, How to Believe You Can Do Anything, Why Nice Guys Can’t Get Girls, How to Be a Man, How to Really Make Money Online, The Hidden Secret in Think and Grow Rich, How to FINALLY Find What You Love to Do: The DEFINITIVE Guide to Finding and Successfully Pursuing Your Passion, etc.

It’s hard wired into my personality too. For those of you familiar with the Myer Briggs Personality Type, I fall into the INTP type and for those of you unfamiliar with how that personality type operates, here are some quotes on it to get a better idea of what it’s all about.

“Possessing a desire to understand the universe, an INTP is constantly looking for natural law. Curiosity concerning these keys to the universe is a driving force in this type.

For INTPs, the world exists primarily to be understood. Reality is trivial, a mere arena for proving ideas. It is essential that the universe is understood and that whatever is stated about the universe is stated correctly, with coherence and without redundancy. This is the INTPs final purpose.”

- 1984 Gnoslogy Books Ltd.

“INTPs are known for their quest for logical purity, which motivates them to examine universal truths and principles. They are constantly asking themselves and others the questions 'Why?' and 'Why not?' Clear and quick thinkers, they are able to focus with great intensity on their interests. They appreciate elegance and efficiency in thought processes and require them, even more so, in their own communications. - Profile by Sandra Krebs Hirsch and Jean Kummerow

“INTPs have a special gift with generating and analyzing theories and possibilities to prove or disprove them. They have a great deal of insight and are creative thinkers, which allows them to quickly grasp complex abstract thoughts. They also have exceptional logical and rational reasoning skills, which allows them to thoroughly analyze theories to discover the Truth about them.

“People with the INTP personality type are global thinkers. They see everything as one giant Entity that is connected, and seek knowledge about that Entity. They constantly seek the Truth, and have ultimate respect for the Truth. It is not easy for the INTP to reach a conclusion about the Truth. Their auxiliary function of Extraverted Intuition allows them to absorb the many complexities in our world, and they are driven to consider each of these complexities before reaching a conclusion. Once they have reached a conclusion, or discovered a Truth, they are *very* particular about the way that Truth is expressed and understood. They want to know that the principles of their understanding have been understood correctly, and demand absolute precision and correctness from others when describing these principles. They also apply these standards to themselves when communicating their knowledge. If they take the time to develop their communication so that it meets their own approval, they can be extremely good educational writers.”

“INTPs live in the world of theoretical possibilities. They see everything in terms of how it could be improved, or what it could be turned into. They live primarily inside their own minds, having the ability to analyze difficult problems, identify patterns, and come up with logical explanations. They seek clarity in everything, and are therefore driven to build knowledge… Their natural drive to turn theories into concrete understanding may turn into a feeling of personal responsibility to solve theoretical problems, and help society move towards a higher understanding.”
- BSM Consulting

The new tagline also represents the desire I have for the site as well as the vision I have for it, as well as the content currently on it. There are a lot of other issues pertaining to self improvement that I want to settle through this site. So much out there is just a rehash of the same old material that I wanted a new, fresh central place that contained DEFINITIVE information to all the self improvement questions out there.

This entire site is geared toward that theme of definitiveness and the new tagline also forces me to hold on to that higher standard, rather than feel tempted to slip in terms of the quality of the material on the site.

I love the new tagline I think it succinctly and accurately reflects the desire I have for the site and what it’s currently all about and what it will continue to be in the future.

That I know for sure.

    Hi Bean,

    Always nice to have a new reader. Welcome to the blog!

    With regard to your question, I haven’t delved all that much into NLP so I don’t really have any concrete thoughts on it. It does look like an interesting concept though.
