Hey, my name is Jackson and I’ve created this site to help people discover their passions and experience more freedom and fulfillment by creating a life they can’t wait to wake up and live.

I know what it’s like to go through life without purpose or drive.

To have tons of potential but not know where to apply it.

Or worse, apply yourself whole heartedly and still go to bed each night feeling unhappy and unfulfilled.

Is it even worth the effort?

Is this all there is?

That’s why I’ve created Transcendence Effect – to share the tools and resources that have helped me find lasting happiness and fulfillment in many aspects of my life.

Look, I’ve spent years living comfortably – too afraid to act on my ambitions, yet too ambitious to stay put. I’ve distracted myself with booze, babes, and brawls from one end of the globe and back again.

And I’ll tell ya, it wasn’t until I discovered the concept of personal growth and development that things started to change.

Personal development is the practice of working on different aspects of your life in order to experience more of what you want.

It’s about finding direction, creating new habits, letting go of old habits, and continually refining yourself as a person.

In doing so we find that what we experience – and where we end up – is significantly different than it would be if we never made these changes.

By applying this concept of personal growth to my own life I’ve gone from working for other people (doing things I didn’t exactly LOVE) to running my own personal training and coaching business while traveling the world!

My relationships with others have gotten deeper and stronger and I’m much more in control of my emotions and the direction of my life.

Now I’m no expert.

I don’t have a degree in awesome living or a masters in behavior therapy.

My knowledge base has come from self-study and personal application.

Trial by fire – figuring out what works and doesn’t work for me – making adjustments along the way.

And on the real – I’m still learning. I’m still picking things up and sorting things out myself – but I’ve found that much of what I’ve learned has been extremely helpful for others.

So I share it – along with my personal journey to self-actualization.

That’s what this site is all about. Sharing what I’m learning along the way and helping others improve themselves in the process.

And to be honest, this thing isn’t always easy.

I’ve had tons of bad days and have had to make some massive adjustments to many areas of my life.

But at the end of the day – it’s worth it.

I have so much knowledge and understanding about who I am, what drives me, and how to impact others than I’ve ever had before.

Needless to say – I’m pretty stoked on living (most the time).

So if you’re ready to uncover your passions, discover your purpose and start living life to the fullest – you’re in the right spot.
