Personal development is a broad topic that can be researched. There are many vital ideas as well as gurus who have written about it.
Let’s take a look at the writings on the topic and hear what they have to offer.
At different times, I have stated that the key to self-development was commitment, belief, and understanding your values.
Experts agree that your actions reflect your thoughts and attitude. The only thing that we can control is our attitude. Your attitude can make the difference between winning or losing in any endeavor you choose, whether it’s business or sport. You can also change everything and anything if your mindset changes. The mind is capable of imagining and believing anything the mind can.
Scott Cofer, a self-improvement trainer, is another writer who has written about the subject. He makes the following statement. What does the term kaizen actually mean? It’s composed of two parts: “Kai,” which means change, and “Zen,” which means good. Literally, it means “good change,” but in practice, it is often called “slow, continuous improvement.”
In 1980, at the start of the last recession, I was hired by an insurance agent to sell business insurance. The training focused on developing the right mental attitude because our survival depended upon how we dealt with rejection every day.
If you keep doing the same thing now, where will you be in ten years?
Everybody wants to have something.
It doesn’t matter what you have: money, status, prestige, some achievement, love, or a happy marriage. Everybody longs to feel fulfilled, to be healthy, to have wealth, and to enjoy the true riches of this life.
It is easy to ask the question: Why do some people succeed while others fail?
There is an answer. I discovered it back in 1990 when I was asked to participate in a program for executive education. I learned that I could control my attitude by focusing on my goal or burning desire and then concentrate on the solutions when confronted with difficulties. The best piece of advice that I received was the use of self-motivators.
Motivators for self-improvement
The tough keep going when it gets complicated.
There is nothing to lose in trying, and there are great rewards if you succeed – so do it now.
Every adversity is a seed for a greater or equal benefit. DO IT NOW
We are closer to a YES answer for every NO answer.
It is essential to ACT on the statements you use with self-motivators. Otherwise, the thought will fade, and the information will be just that – an idea and not an action.
There are many people who today wonder what they can do to get closer to their goals. Some will succeed, but many will not. Many will wonder, dream and wish, but most will wake up with the shock of realizing they’re still in the exact spot they dreamed. Although the goal is still alive, the chance has passed.
Is that a familiar statement?
A pen and paper can help you organize your thoughts.
At the top of your paper, write a goal that you want to reach. To list all the obstacles and challenges you might face, draw a line in the middle of the paper. You will see all the positive outcomes that you will experience as a result. This will allow you to plan and overcome any challenges that may arise. It will also help you to keep your thoughts clear of the things you don’t want and focus on the things you do want, those that will enable you to achieve your goal.
Create a simple self-help program for yourself, such as:
Self-help books are worth reading
Positive, enthusiastic, and forward-thinking people should be a part of your group
Night classes in a subject that are dear to you
Do what you can now. Once you start, it will become a habit.
