About three years ago, someone suggested that I needed to do Personal Development. I thought it was a waste of time. I’ve since decided I wasn’t the smartest person in the room and started doing personal development. LOL!!! I have heard many awesome phrases by great men like Jim Rohn, Mark Hughes, Les Brown, etc. The couple that got me into the nutrition business also told me. But, these phrases don’t really tell the whole story until you’re ready to hear and really understand them. Until you become humble enough to listen to someone else besides yourself and until you change your own mind. Change your mind and you will change your life! What a hard lesson to learn and you have to be open to the fact that you’re not as smart as you think you are. Now that I’ve realized that, everything is falling into place. Surprise! #DUH.
I’ve learned that I can learn from others and take lessons from just about everyone I meet. It’s surprising how much you start to see things differently when you open your mind. Things actually start to fall into place in your life. The more personal development I do and the more consistently I do it every day, I realize just how negative this world is. It’s like we all have a bad attitude everywhere we look. I thought I had a lot of positive people in my life until I started working on myself and then I found out that I was very wrong. One of the books I read said that in order for things to change, we have to change. If you just think about that statement, it’s HUGE!
Here’s the bottom line; everyone needs personal development. It’s that simple! I could go into all kinds of explanations but it all leads to the same place. First, you have to realize that you want to change your situation and then understand that you need to change your mind to change your life! Once you understand that, then you’re ready to take the next step. But, it all starts with what you want. If you’re ok with living the way you do, then do nothing. If, on the other hand, you are sick and tired of the way you’re living, and you’re tired of living for Friday and partying all weekend just so you can do it all over again, then you’re ready to change your mind and that in turn will change your life.
If you are ready and want to start changing your mind, here are a few books I would suggest, which have helped me a lot. You can read them or get them in audio, whichever you prefer.
The books are:
These are both excellent and they have made a huge difference in all aspects of my life. Believe me when I say, It’ll be worth it to make the change. I’m not letting negative into my life anymore and I’m moving forward with my personal development. I’m going to the top of the mountain!! Who’s going with me???
