About Me

d grant smith self-love teacher coach empowerment superheroHi, I’m D Grant Smith.

Here’s a little about me.

I Love Love. And I Love People.

This is why I do what I do which is to help people grow Love from within.

I call this practice Relationship Growth Farming.

When you treat your heart and mind like a garden, you realize that you can plant, grow and harvest Love from within yourself.

I learned this concept from a life-changing conversation I had with one of my heroes and friends, Seth Godin, on this podcast episode.

This practice has helped me stop seeking validation from other people in order to believe in myself and instead practice self Love.

What you’ll find on this site are my teachings, wisdom, lessons, and tools for you to use to plant and grow Love within yourself to have the most healthy and strong relationships.

And to live your best life.

The First and Primary Relationship You Have Is With Yourself

You are the ONE person that you cannot live without.

Yet if you’re like me, you’ve spent a good portion of your life chasing after Love from other people so that you can feel valued and worthy.

I did that for a long LONG time!

It took soul-crushing heartbreak and the end of a twelve-year marriage for Divine Love (aka God) to finally speak to me in a way I could understand.

And from that experience, my life has completely transformed.

Love lives inside of you, whether you realize it or not.

I help people connect with the Love that is already in you to fully live Love out loud.

This process and practice will transform your life, your relationships, your confidence, your self-esteem, and how you grow in personal development.

Here’s a little about me that I haven’t spelled out on the blog:
My mission in life is to empower you to be the best version of yourself.
This means leveling up from where you are right now by growing Love from within your heart and mind garden (Relationship Growth Farming).
Yes, becoming a farmer of Love for yourself is how you change your life.
It’s how I’ve changed mine, and I’m blessed to have the opportunity to show you how to do this too!

Life brings similar people together

I hope you’ll see how our journeys might be similar.
I spent much of my life afraid of other people, what they thought of me, and a deep fear of rejection.
Suffice to say, I didn’t have any confidence. 
I also didn’t know how to Love myself (I actually thought self Love was “selfish” and was the same thing as being arrogant; trust me I’ve learned that it’s NOT!).

That was my broken sense of self-worth talking.

I’m a short guy (5′ 7″) and weigh under 130 lbs. I was always the shortest and skinniest guy in school so I was picked on and bullied a lot.
And that was part of what fueled my insecurity and lack of confidence. But it turns out that even 6’5″ athletes struggle with self-worth and confidence issues.
I know that now because I’ve worked with a few people who seemed to fit that description of someone I believed would have endless confidence. They didn’t. They had many of the same inner struggles I did.
After I got out of college I got married to a very beautiful lady and thought I’d conquered my fears of rejection. I had a successful career in broadcast media including being a syndicated radio show host.
I thought that between being married and having people all over the world know who I was, that made me something.

But I was hiding

The truth was, I was inwardly afraid of not being Loved or accepted as I was. And I was waiting for the day when other people would walk away and tell me I wasn’t good enough.
Which is what ended up happening (in a way). One day in 2017, my wife of 12 years said she was done with our marriage. She left a month later and divorce followed.
To say I was heartbroken is an understatement. I went to rock bottom and smashed through the floor another 10,000 feet to the basement. It was a personal hell I never imagine.

That marriage had been my whole world

My sense of self and worth walked out the door when she did. That was also when I began to learn more about me that I’d been hiding for decades.
The next two years were a state of transformation. I was tired of feeling less than, not good enough, and broken. I realized that the real cause of my pain, and the reason why I’d struggled in life, was because I didn’t know how to Love myself. So I committed to re-learning what Love truly is and began a practice of Loving myself fully. Unconditionally.
Just as I am.
I began a process of utilizing some key principles I learned in another place (amateur boxing) to rebuild my self-concept, utilizing Love as the way and the means, to become the person I wanted to be.
Going through this journey into learning what Love is and how to Love myself completely transformed my life.
It’s what my book Be Solid: How To Go Through Hell & Come Out Whole details my own story, action steps to take, and inspiration to transform your life. If you want to transform your life from brokenness into confidence and wholeness, read it!
This journey also involved me creating a system that I now call Growth Farming. It’s treating your heart and your mind like a garden. By consciously and consistently planting Love inside yourself, Love becomes what you attract into and grow from your life.
The results have been a complete life transformation. In every way.
I‘ve been able to do work that fulfills my purpose, impact the lives of hundreds of people, foster strong and amazing relationships with people, and experience the fullness of Love. I finally feel whole, strong, and confident in who I am.
Every. Day.

And you can too.
