Gegard Grogan is an English influencer author who was born in 1966 in New London, Connecticut. During the year, he has written 5 books, all of which emphasize self-development and personal growth. Grogan started his journey as an author from the book, The Blueprint, which soon gained popularity as a mentor to people who struggle to remove their inner blocks and unleash their suppressed emotions.
Grogan was born and raised in Connecticut in a large family. His family included seven kids, five boys, and two daughters. Grogan’s father was a Navy veteran who served the army for around 25 years while his mother was a homemaker.
Being a son of a navy veteran, Gerard was brought up in a disciplinary system. His life revolved around waking up at 5 o’clock in the morning and completing all the household chores before getting ready for school. This system made him disciplined enough to do house chores and other tasks on time. However, during his early days of life, Grogan had a distressed childhood as he did not grow up in a healthy family environment. His early days of life revolved around his mom and dad fighting with each other and taking out their frustration on the kids. The constant yelling and screaming made him lose his self-image and confidence in the early years, along with sprouting up some unexpressed emotions. These traumatic experiences made him realize the importance of self-worth and self-image and he devoted the rest of his life to enlightening people about recreating their lives in simple steps.
Among the seven siblings, Gerard was the first one to go to college. He started his journey to education by joining Patrick Henry High School. Regardless of being raised in a disciplined household, he was not among the top-graded students in the class, and his grades used to loop around Cs and Ds until one day his zest and zeal, bolstered by some traumatic incidents in the home, pushed him to break the monotony. Soon, his grades changed from C and D to A and B. After graduating from high school in 1985, Grogan graduated with a degree in computer networking and later joined Radford University. However, due to uncertain circumstances, he finished the degree online at Walden University. Since education and self-education had always been his passion, Gerard went on to get a bachelor’s degree in Sacred Theology from Richmond Virginia Seminary and a doctorate in Metaphysical Psychology from the University of Sedona. He believed that each degree helped him a lot in shaping his personality and each subject was a new learning experience for him. Setting new life goals for people, Grogan completed his degrees at the age of 55, just when people plan to retire.
Despite being raised in a toxic environment, Gerard was always influenced by his parents who did the best they could to raise, feed and clothe seven kids. He was also inspired by Les Brown, Dr. Eric Thomas, and Tony Robbins who sowed some seeds of optimism in him and changed his life forever.
Besides these amazing people, three stories changed Gerard’s life to the fullest. The first incident was his mom leading to the Pygmalion effect, followed by the second one with his dad. If these two were not enough, he was also a victim of plastic surgery malpractice in the later part of his life. According to the author, all these incidents changed his perception of life forever and made him rewire his brain so he can turn out to be the best version of himself. All these incidents are penned down in detail in one of his famous books, “The Blueprint-How to recreate your life in six simple steps”, with each one enunciating how it transformed his life.
