Blog Re-launch: "Get Rid of the Box"

After a several month hiatus, I am relaunching my blog with a new, rebranded website design, a new blog name as well as with a sharper honed focus. 

What is the Blog About?

My purpose is to help people live their lives better; to help them find their path, get rid of whatever is blocking their way, and to live their lives to the fullest.

My central message is this: To overcome your problems and succeed in life, you must look inward and live from there.

I will explore a variety of topics. My intention is share ideas and techniques for living life better. I hope to break down the barriers that block people from living happy, fulfilling and meaningful lives in our modern, secular world.

What Does “Get Rid of the Box” Mean?

As part of the process of inner transformation, we need to address the mind and outdated beliefs that hold us back.

The name of of this blog is “Get Rid of the Box.” It is in reference to the cliché catchphrase often used by management consultants to “think outside of the box,” meaning to think differently, unconventionally or from a different perspective.

Yet “the box” is limitations based upon your beliefs. Even if you think outside of the box, you are still attached to it. Get rid of the box and free yourself.
