Oh, how times have changed…back in the day personal development what laughed and mocked. I can even imagine people ducking and jumping out of the isles in bookstores trying to hide and not be seen in the “self-help” section.
Well now the inverse is true. Currently it seems that everyone is into personal development and/or is talking about it. Truth be told, I love the concept and wish I would have valued it much sooner in my life.
I didn’t really value personal development until I starting attending Graduate School to be a Navy Chaplain and counselor. I was blessed with the opportunity – against my will at first – to read and learn. As a result, I got smarter, learned more, could do more and help people more. Crazy right? (What an idiot right?)
What I discovered is that taking the time to invest in myself helped me to stay organized, focused, and better able to handle the good and bad. It taught me to have structure and self imposed accountability. As a result I started to feel more accomplished, successful and fulfilled.
The good news…YOU can discover the same thing without having to pay a fortune for graduate school.
The resources are almost endless nowadays Audible, Amazon, the Internet, has put almost every resource know to man at your fingertips.
Amazon for example as categories you can use to research what you want to learn and develop.
The challenge this week is to set aside 10 minutes and invest in yourself.
Pick one area of your life that you want to focus on. One area of your life that if changed or developed fuller would make a profound difference in your life.
How do you do that? listen to a book, read an article, watch a video, listen to a pod cast, etc…that speaks to the area you are seeking improvement in.
Join me!? Don’t wait until you are 30 to discover this awesome habit!
Comment below if you’ll be setting aside at least 10 minutes each day this!
