The last self-growth resource you’ll ever need.

I'm already ready!

You don’t need endless self-help seminars. You just need actionable, proven strategies.

Do you ever lay in bed at night and wonder to yourself, "Am I living up to my full potential?”

The question keeps nagging at you, and the person you aspire to become feels distant— a stark contrast to the reflection in the mirror each morning. Because while there’s some part of you that knows you have untapped potential, in your day to day life, you feel more like bystander than the architect of your own life.

As a result...

  • Instead of confidently navigating life's choices, you second-guess yourself because you're uncertain about your core values and what truly matters to you.
  • Instead of unapologetically embracing your authentic self, assertively upholding your boundaries, and forming genuine connections, you frequently feel ensnared in the cycle of people-pleasing, because you don’t know who your true self really is.

  • Rather than embracing each day with purpose and enthusiasm, you find yourself merely going through the motions, the gravitational pull of stagnation holding you back from fully grasping the person you know you could be.

  • Despite countless hours consuming the most popular self-help books, podcasts, and seminars, your “self-improvement” journey feels scattered and inconsistent.
And worst of all?

This inconsistency has been gradually eroding your self-trust and confidence, further reinforcing the voices in your head plagued with self-doubt and disappointment in yourself.

And these patterns seep into every area of your life, casting shadows on your career, relationships, and sense of self.

When you’re honest with yourself, you know that something has to change.
And the on-again, off-again self-growth strategies you've tried in the past? Yeah, let's leave them there.


I want to show you a better way.

12 Impactful Courses to Elevate Your Personal Growth:

Values Blueprint
In this course, you'll clarify your values and use them as own internal compass, empowering you to make choices aligned with your priorities, rather than defaulting to the opinions of others or internalized cultural messaging. When you clearly understand your core values, you give yourself the gift of greater purpose, direction and inner peace, because you’re living in congruence with what matters most to you.
Personal Strengths

Using this month’s trainings and resources, you’ll identify your innate talents and abilities, and create a plan for harnessing them in your personal and professional lives.

In this course, you'll embark on a journey to nurture your well-being and delve into practices that truly nourish your mind, body, and soul.

Success Equation
In these trainings, you’ll embark on a journey of self-discovery to articulate your personal markers of success: gaining clarity on what's most important to you and the vision you have for the life you want to create (instead of the life you think you “should” be working towards). You end the month feeling empowered to make choices that support your vision of success, and confident in your ability to create a fulfilling and purposeful life on your terms.

Life Equilibrium
In this course, you’ll explore the concept of balance and how to cultivate it in your life. You'll assess the various areas of your life, such as work, relationships, personal growth, and leisure, and identify where you may need to make adjustments to achieve a more harmonious equilibrium.

Prune and Simplify
In this course, you'll focus on simplifying and pruning the unnecessary in your life. You'll learn how to identify and eliminate the excess, whether it's physical clutter, digital distractions, commitments that no longer serve you, or anything else that's taking up valuable space in your life. By the end of the month, you'll have a clearer picture of what's essential in your life and how to create space for it.

Have we met?
Hey— I’m Amanda Hilton, a personal growth and psychology specialist and the founder of The Simply Well.

I began my own wellness journey about a decade ago when, amidst the hustle and bustle of compounding responsibilities and the pressure to "do it all," I began to crave a holistic feeling of well-being that could help me sustain my busy lifestyle. And while I didn’t find a one-size-fits-all solution to well-being (and "working on myself" didn't automatically resolve my stress or overwhelm), I did find that the small, positive, intentional things I practiced on a daily or weekly basis rippled outward into other areas of my life, and I began to shift my foundational beliefs about what it means to be "well."

But there was just one problem.

While my foray into the wellness industry offered me some direction and hope, finding balance and consistency throughout the process proved to be more challenging. The occasional yoga class and sporadic positive psychology intervention weren’t cutting it— and as the years of early adulthood passed, I found myself oscillating between feeling like I had to “do it all” (Have you ever felt pressured by the self-help gurus to wake up at 4:45 AM to fit in a workout, meditation, journaling, walking, yoga, reading, and a cold shower all before starting the workday?! *cough* Yeah, uhh, me neither 🙄) or losing my momentum altogether and failing to make time for any personal growth or wellness practices at all.

I realized that in order to sustain my well-being over the long run, I needed to anchor personal growth into my life in a way that was simultaneously systematic and flexible. In other words, I craved pathways for growth that felt structured and practical (so that I could trust their efficacy and actually rely on them), but also elastic enough to allow me to adapt them to my unique needs, goals, and lifestyle (no more mindlessly following someone else’s “10 guaranteed steps to success” and crossing my fingers that it would finally work).

Over the last several years, I’ve dedicated myself to understanding personal development from numerous angles, including academic (receiving my Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis on Spirituality Mind-Body Studies from Columbia University) and experiential (testing out self-growth practices in my own life— ranging from mega-popular to über-niche), and developed my educational Instagram account and popular Take What You Need email newsletter to help others do the same. And now, I’m combining my knack for breaking down empirical psychology research into bite-sized strategies and my background in educational theory and curriculum design to make personal growth more accessible and actionable than ever before through the State of Self Membership!

If you’re ready to learn the best personal growth tools available today (without needing to sift through the endless the noise and fluff in self-help industry to find them), State of Self was made for you.
