Portrait of Ricky Browne

Authentic Self

Self-development, individuation and authenticity.

Ricky Browne

Ricky Nolan Browne was born in 1977 which makes him a Xennial. This is the micro-generation between Gen X and Millenials.

Born in Australia, Ricky has lived most of his life in country NSW. Growing up on farms at Molong near Orange and Geurie near Dubbo, gave him a love for the bush and its diverse flora and fauna.

Ricky Browne is now forty-five and has written multiple books over the past three years, and is working on more. It took a few epochs of change before Ricky was able to write consistently.

He has written books for himself and made up books for his family, and has self-published six others. Four of his self-published books are humour, another a book of poetry, and one book on his principles for life he gleaned from his experiences and reading. Ricky also has two blogs containing short pieces of writing on society, politics and self-development.

Ricky Browne is an agnostic who takes inspiration from the bible but is in many ways critical of Christianity and the church. Ricky’s wife is a Christian, and he considers that to be one of the reasons she’s such a wonderful individual.

Ricky has incorporated a lot of insights from western and eastern philosophies and has done a fair amount of reading on modern psychology including positive psychology, which he has incorporated into his mental schema.

This incorporation of knowledge of the mind has given Ricky a high level of self-awareness and has made him a very logical thinker to a large degree.

Garbage in, garbage out

Reading can make you a better person. But it all depends on what you decide to read. You read bullshit. You become a bullshitter. Even if you think the bullshit you’re spewing is true.

The thing that got us to where we are, won’t take us to where we need to be.
