My Background…

1000623_10201893624640950_685757263_n            Hello, everyone. My name is Joon and I have been a fan of self-development, self-help, or whatever you may call it ever since high school. During my teenage years, I have been living in a dark room(depression, pessimism, anxiety, hopelessness, and etc.) without any knowledge or tools to help myself see the light.


My Discoveries…old-book-1426980

During those years I stumbled onto a book called Anger by Thich Nhat Hanh. Back then, I was only familiar with fictional or biographical until I ran into Thich Nhat Hanh’s book. The book made me understand a lot about my deep seated anger, pessimism, and depression. Also, it made me understand that there are books out there that is geared towards helping people to get out of inner struggles.

I was instantly hooked. I searched for more books and ran into books such as Chicken Soup for the Soul by Jack Canfield and several other inspirational and motivational books. These type of self-help, self-development, or spirituality books, articles, and medias became my company over a decade now. These inspirational words and quotes helped me through my depression, heartbreaks, real life struggles, competitions, loneliness, stress, and more. Matter of fact, they saved my life and changed my life and guided me to where I am.


My Purpose…hands-1438638

I know how it is to be in a dark room and feel alone. I created this website to give you a hand and help you see a glimpse of light when you are in the dark room and go beyond and motivate you to see the possibilities that you never thought were possible. But most of all, I want to be able to assist you to strengthen your faith.

No matter where you are, you can do more, you can be more, you can love more, you can smile more. We all are beautiful people with infinite possibilities. I want to help you to see this and believe in yourself.

Let’s take this journey one step at a time and strive to live a brighter life!
