There are thousands of articles on the Internet about professional development and personal growth. In the Facts or Assumptions? section we look more closely at the most popular ones. We encourage you to look at them critically.

  • Which of them are based on facts and scientific research?
  • Which ones are just a collection of author's beliefs, that even though sincere, are not always true?
  • Is there any sales pitch hidden?

And finally... Why are you reading these articles? What is your true motivation?
- Is it the need for instant pleasure during reading (the illusion of achievement right now)?
- Or need and intent to introduce real changes in your life (true achievement in the future)?

Only you can answer these last questions and it might be hard to be really honest with yourself. This is why we invite you to warm up as an article critic - because it is much easier to judge others.
