Hi there, if you have problems, you’re in the right place!
Been there, done that. (Still doing, actually). Anyway: I’m Sylvia Rytarowska, the founder of spin2life – the place where you find answers to questions like:
- How can I quit smoking/eating junk food/…..(fill in the blanks)?
- How can I be more motivated to do what I need to do?
- How can I strengthen my willpower?
- How can I improve my focus?
And many other hot and current topics on how to improve your life and become a better version of yourself.
If you don’t have time to read through long, difficult, academic books, I’ll do it for you (I love reading) and present you with the key information they contain, such as the latest findings and experiment results by the most renowned and respected NYT best-selling authors.
Subscribe to my Personal Growth Lab (it’s free), and you’ll get CURRENT personal development strategies from NYT best-selling authors and renowned academic researchers, like Tony Buzan, Bruce Lipton, Daniel Goleman and many others.
Writing about yourself in third person is weird. I’ll stay with my own voice if you don’t mind.
Brian Tracy would say, I’m a salesperson, and I agree because we all are. I’m also a problem solver, a school owner (really, brick and mortar!) an awesome wife, a mother of two beautiful and talented daughters, a dog owner but in all of these areas: a teacher. I coach managers, teach English, speed reading, mnemonics and lateral thinking – I get really excited talking about my job. As for passions: I’m a total fitness junkie, weightlifting at the moment.
Weird things about me:
- I’m a good shooter and pool player. I could actually do it for money.
- I’m a fan of LOTR, Harry Potter, Tomb Raider (all games!), Assassin’s Creed (all games and books). (I have a dilemma: Lara Croft or Ezzio Auditore on my desktop)
- I’m nobody special. I just like learning and reading.
- I also managed to quit some awful things (with success so far), which I think is my biggest achievement. These were (in order of importance):
- Steady teaching job (2007),
- Smoking cigarettes – ages ago (1998), but I still dream of it occasionally,
- Drinking alcohol – just red wine until 2012 (since Jan 2013 – zip),
- Watching TV – it sort of just happened, so I probably shouldn’t take credit for it (summer 2012),
- Eating junk food – most recent quit (Spring 2013),
Now I’m fighting with chocolate, so far with mixed results. (Actually I just had some from my daughter’s Christmas batch).
