Personal Development Mentality
I’d say just about everyone has a desire to be a better version of themselves. We all talk about how we are working toward a promotion, growing an audience on social media, or trying to get healthier. But, to me that’s all talk, all hypothetical. I think the better question is, what percentage of the talkers actually act on it on a daily basis?
I bet it’s pretty disproportionate to the amount of people who think they doing it.
As great as self help books are, or going to conferences, or even my SID audio content, the resources themselves don’t do anything but offer ideas. While it is very important to learn about the strategies, techniques, and reasons for certain things, at the end of the day it is only knowledge. It still requires that you take action.
I encourage you to reflect on your life and be honest with yourself. Are you accountable to goals, do you have routines, are you changing habits, do you have certain favorite techniques? Do those things match the lifestyle, productivity, and efficiency you want to live with?
There’s no trick to personal development, because the responsibility is on you to take action. Identify those things that fit into your life, the person you want to be, and put in the work to change your life to match it.
