About Jef van de Graaf
Hello, I’m Jef van de Graaf. I’m a UX copywriter, world adventurer, and knowledge junkie. I’m also the guy who writes all the stuff you read on Jefvandegraaf.com (too obvious, huh?).
This website is the centerpiece of my life’s work where I write about my curiosity for personal growth, career development, health optimization, and life-long success. For me, there is one question I am focused on answering: “How can we achieve success and which actions will allow us to achieve it?”
As I pursue the answer to that question, I intend to share scientific research along with my personal experiences to provide you with an easy-to-understand and practical perspective on this question. I intend to combine my scientific and psychological education with my real-world pursuits to share with you ideas that can improve our overall living. There are also many books, speeches, and influencers from different fields that teach how to put into practice the principles of success.
I believe the path of success requires progressive changes to your thoughts, beliefs, and behavior–in a healthy manner–which gracefully lead toward the overcoming of obstacles, the achievement of milestones, and ultimately, the conquering of self.
I believe the path of success requires progressive changes to our thoughts, beliefs, and behavior–in a healthy manner–which gracefully guide us toward the overcoming of obstacles, the achievement of milestones, and ultimately, the conquering of self. Unfortunately, there are often moments throughout our lives when every effort to improve has little or no effect. However, if you focus on becoming the best version of yourself, by laying out a clear path toward who you want to be and how you intend to achieve it, you start to live a life with organized thoughts, impulses, and actions that have world-changing results.
Here, you’ll find I write, experiment, and practice the pursuit of personal success. The key to building a better life and improving the world we live in is to find your own way to put into practice proven concepts, methods, and strategies while pushing your limits and expanding your potential. That’s why I take a scientific approach combined with story-telling, examples from inspirational people, and hard-earned wisdom to share information to help you master your life.
You can find this information throughout my website or you can sign up to my weekly newsletter to receive my articles every week. You’ll only get information on how to change your life, pursue your goals, and achieve your personal success.
I should mention that I don’t have all the answers and there’s still a lot I have to learn. However, I’m happy to share the lessons I’ve discovered along my journey in life. In the end, I hope they provide you with practical tools for growth, a worthwhile career, healthy living, and the discovery of your own, personal success.
