My name is David Rogers and I live on the south coast of England. Our eldest daughter is now 23, we have non identical twins who are 19. My wife is a nurse whose specialism is oncology. I used to work in a bank, amongst other things, but my main line of work has been Occupational Therapy. I have worked in various mental health settings (acute unit, rehabilitation, community, prison) for over 23 years. I have always been interested in personal development, particularly practical self help. Personal development for me largely revolves around acquiring skills communication (assertiveness, confident speaking), confidence, problem solving, goal setting, planning, positive thinking, concentration, self motivation, body language, appearance, stress management - to name a few. Few of us leave childhood with all the personal tools to equip us to succeed in what ever field we choose to pursue. Personal development is just that - developing personal skills that help you do what you do better. Passion is what drives. Passion is deep, an inner belief and overwhelming excitement that propels you in a particular direction. Creating or finding your passion is another important strand of personal development, and finding your own system to pull this all together. The current buzz in the world of personal development is Laws of Attraction, which takes mere positive thinking to a world of magnetic flows and endless gifts for those who can tune in. The psychobabble of some of its proponents, who embrace it with a evangelical fervour, make it hard to take seriously. Which I don't! I have centred on self confidence (in particular) and self esteem for several reasons not least as I have had my own struggles in the past in this area. Along with communication, self confidence forms the foundation of personal development. Check my blog How to Have Great Self Confidence
