What is Personal Development
The other day I was asked by one of my relatives, “What is Personal Development.”
She was interested in what my new books Creating & Using A Bug Free Mind were on. So I told her mindset for personal development.
I was slightly surprised that she didn’t know what it was, but then I also thought well it’s hardly surprising. As personal development is for the people who have woken up and realised that they wish to be more than they are now. In fact they are so interested in developing their own lives that they go as far as to search out books on the subject.
Now I know to those of us who are interested in creating the life we desire the very concept of not striving to improve does not make any sense at all. In fact it goes so far against the grain it’s almost untrue. However, she asked me to define what is personal development so this is how I answered her…
Personal Development is all about furthering yourself, and investing in your own growth.
It is of course something you would think we were all doing, however, to be able to do this we have to be conscious enough to see when we are not doing it… So around 70% of people made their last attempts at personal development when they finished their exams at school.
We cannot consider the training required to operate a till personal development.
So what is personal development? Or rather what is the personal development industry?
And why did I write books for it, well because I decided that there had a lot of people who had gone before me in the world and that some of them would have left a trail that I could pick up. Some did and sent people off in the wrong direction. Or rather as I cover in my books, unfortunately most books send people off in the wrong direction. Not because they intentionally mislead its just that they did not clearly get their reader to understand what they actually meant.
This is a crucial point in personal development, and it is the key to people succeeding or failing.
Personal development is not just about financial success, it is about having a successful life in every single area. Personal development is about providing you with the tools to find out exactly what parts of your life are and are not working and finding ways to increase your abundance of a great life in any area that is not.
So if anyone asks you, what is personal development you can answer, it is something that enables me to live the fullest life I am capable of creating,
