About | Personal Excellence "Just want to say thank you for your words of wisdom about dealing with anger within families. You basically saved me from needing a lifetime of therapy and showed me a way to reflect and grow instead.""I found your site while trying to find a way around the incredible over-analysis I have done throughout my entire life. When I read #6 of your guide, I could not help but burst out in tears. Your one paragraph opened up a very personal part of me that I was ignoring and helped me admit these issues to myself. THANK YOU." Much of this site is free. That said, I need to make money from my work. I also create premium courses, available in my Courses section. All the content on Personal Excellence is created by me. You will also find that there are few to no comment channels on this site, no social media accounts linked, and no public email channels except for specified purposes. Last but not least, Personal Excellence is run by myself, Celestine Chua.
