Hi. My name is Nadine Grandison-Mills. Welcome to Pathway To Personal Development!

I am a personal development blogger and author. I help adults who are unsatisfied with their lives yet lack motivation, to unlock their potential for greater happiness and  self-fulfilment. I help those yearning to be more, transforming lives by using tools and techniques to overcome feelings of powerlessness and self-doubt, and to silence the inner-demons suppressing success.

If you desire that motivational spark to start transforming your life, then you are in the perfect place!

I usually post main blog posts on personal development and relationships twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays.  Like what you see? Don’t want to miss a post?  You can subscribe via e-mail.

Stories are fun and also informative.

I have always loved writing, be it stories, poems or musical compositions, since I was a young girl.

In 2014, I finally acknowledged to myself that I have always wanted to be a writer.


It’s a pity I wasted a decade in self-denial and trying to play it safe, but I know I can’t change the past.

I have stopped being a turtle (as my sister says) and have started to emerge from my shell, which feels scary (I’m not going to lie to you!) yet also exhilarating at the same time.

Interestingly, although I am a huge fan of Personal Development and have learnt a lot from conventional means, I have learnt so much about personal development from fiction stories – getting lost in books, watching characters grow and overcoming adversity.

Like Frodo Baggins in the Lord of the Rings.

Like Tris in the Divergent Series.

Like Arya Stark and Jon Snow in the Game of Thrones Saga.

Their experiences inspire, resonate within me and give me comfort.

I wanted (and still want!) to write about Personal Development, yet I have always yearned to express myself creatively and I wasn’t sure how I could possibly marry the two. If you have read some of my other blog posts, such as ‘Escaping the Hidey Hole’ or  ‘Riding Through Storms’, you will realise that I don’t write like most personal development bloggers.

Which made me a little anxious.

And after weeks of grappling with this issue, I have decided

it’s okay.

I have a creative-writing style. Humans are not clones and we should celebrate those features and characteristics that make us different.

So I’m being brave…
