Welcome to Ongoing Growing!
I want to take a moment to share with you a bit about me, and also about that blog.
My name is Nicolas, I am French and I am in my thirties. For most of my life, I lived in the French Alps(South East of France), in the countryside. I had the chance to live is a beautiful part of France, called “Le Trièves“. I have been mountain biking and skiing for many years, and for a while dreamt of being a ski instructor. My life took a massive turn when I moved to Ireland, leaving the mountains for a flatter place. I’ve learned how to make Ireland my new home, I met my wife here. Both of us felt into self-development years ago, and I am eager to share about that on this blog.
Years back, one of my managers gave me a book to read as part of my development towards being a Team Leader, and that book changed my life. The book was: The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey. Since then, I have been looking up in Podcasts, Audio Books or YouTube, Webinars, Seminars and week-long self-development training. Armed with new knowledge and experiences, I’ve come to help people around me. Sharing the wisest insights from a Monk, or the sharpest idea from a top self-development trainer. This led me to want to reach more people and create this blog.
I created this blog to reach out to other people and share with you my findings on self-development as well as my personal experience. I want to mix both sides of it, I want to share the knowledge, resources but as well, I want to share concrete real-life experiences.
The topics that you can expect from this blog are relationship, health, physical intelligence, emotional intelligence, mental health and spirituality. At times, I will also write about entrepreneurship or financial independence.
I don’t claim to be a master of any of these, I am on a lifelong journey and keep learning every day. I’d like to share this journey with you, and hopefully, we can both make the other richer with our own experiences, knowledge or discoveries.
The opinions and thoughts expressed in this blog do not represent to ones from my employer and only are my own.

I wish you a good day!
