Personal Development

Are You Doing Everything You Can?

With personal development, you can always do more. The reason being, it’s life-changing. It doesn’t just affect you, it also affects those around us. Your friends, your family, your work environment. All those people you come into contact with daily. There’s this ripple effect that happens.

Ask yourself in this very moment, are you doing everything you can to become the best version of you? When was the last time you read a book? Listened to a book? Found a seminar? Speaker? Mentor? Took a class? Learned a language? Invested in yourself? There’s time, you just have to find and make the time to do it. If it’s important, you will find a way.

There are podcasts, video series, and trainings, just to name a few. Let them in instead of pushing them away. Open that door. Not just a crack; open that door and watch the floodgates release.

Change Your Mind-set

This will change your mind-set; it will begin to build the person you want to be. There’s a funny thing that starts happening.

You start to believe that you can. You do the work, you get better. If you get better, you believe more. If you believe more, you are more convicted. The more convicted, the more confident. The more confident, then the more you want to keep going.

That’s why this isn’t just a resolution. It’s not something you just start and stop. When you begin to develop yourself, you start striving for more. You yearn to want to learn. To read that next book, to listen to that next internal training. That next podcast. You start to want it. What happens then? You guessed it. Life starts to change for the better. You no longer go backward or become stagnant. You begin to achieve because you know you can.

Take a good hard look and ask yourself: What can you do to make yourself better? Yeah, it might be hard to start but isn’t anything that’s worth it? How can you start developing yourself? Do you have things that you want to accomplish that you haven’t done?

Begin Now

There are so many people out there that want to help you. You start to realize this when you look for it. Give yourself 10 minutes, 15 minutes, or even a half hour to start. Create the discipline it takes to make it happen.

You have the time. We all do.

Who you are today doesn’t have to be who you are tomorrow. Don’t look back next year and say, “I wish I would have started.” You have the ability to control that. It’s in all of us.
