One of my favorite subjects to talk to clients and others about as it has had a huge impact in my own life, yes personal development might be looked at as a scam by many but I can tell you from first hand experience that if you take it seriously you can attract what you want into your life.
This post is for all of you with businesses or even just ideas and starting to hustle because when you focus on what is holding you back personally you can attract the right things into your life.
I know it sounds kinda "scammy", exactly what I though when I was stuck and looking for better results in life and in business. That is until I went all in trying to figure out what was holding me back through some great books and resources that we can talk about later...
So I was sitting, probably where most of you guys are, in a position where you have started your business and grinding but not seeming to find the results you are looking for.. hell you could even be coming off of a relationship like I was and wondering whats next and why you are feeling the way you are.
The logical move for me was to turn to why things weren't going how I planned or imagined them to and then I was blaming others/ other things or situations when it was really my mindset that was holding me back.
I started looking into it and reading books such as "How To Win Friends and Influence People", "The Secrets of The Millionaire Mind" and "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People". Even though I have read these books before I am a strong believer of rereading at different points in life as you take away different things each time you read!
Anyways, after rereading a handful of books and really taking time to look at my past and why I was being held back I finally started figuring things out...
First off my relationships were controlling my life and I was putting too much of my happiness attached to the person I was dating. I was also attaching their attention to my happiness so I was not happy if we weren't talking an felt I had to hold a conversation all day in order to be happy. This is not a good place to be in as you want to find happiness in other areas of life as well not all of it attached to one person!
I also did a deep dive into why my business wasn't getting the results I thought I should be. I found that it came down to me convincing myself subconsciously that I wasn't worthy and sabotaging my success. Once I changed that mindset I started attracting more sales and opportunities into my life because I felt that I was worthy of what was happening and started being open to receiving rather than just giving.
Well that was the story of how personal development helped me and my life most recently, and I'm sure I will have many more and so will you once you fully commit to being the best you.
Personal development has to be one of the most overlooked aspects of success and building any sort of business by people. How are you supposed to build anything or help others when you don't even have your own mind right?!
Well personal development will help you get that mindset right and help you attract the right things into your life like I talked about above. For example, once you fully accept that you are just as worthy as anyone else, you will attract more money and sales into your life. You can't just say you are worthy though, you have to actually dig deep and actually believe that.
So you are probably reading this right now and thinking okay, I'm committing to personal development but how do I start.. well here is your answer:
