Investing In You


“Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Do not bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself.”
William Faulkner

I often write about wanting to grow, wanting to be better. Personal development is the process of achieving and expanding your potential.

Personal growth is a journey. Once we are on the pathway we will come up against various obsticles from with in ourself. We doubt ourselves being a significant one.

Along our journey we go throw various stages of development:

Self doubt is one of the biggest obstacles standing in our way. As we move towards our goals our negative self beliefs often get in the way. They raise doubts and create internal resistance. We wonder if we are indeed capable of change as the mind struggles to find the evidence that a new way is possible.

Internal conflict is often felt as we choose to embrace the new ideas, a tug-of-war with the past and all that we have been. However, if we use our growing knowledge and understanding, we keep moving forwards.

Acceptance and integration come as a result of patience, practice and perseverance. Acceptance enables us to let go of what we are unable to change and change the things we can. It makes us more rounded and as a result we are able to find a better understanding of ourselves, which leads to peace and contentment.

A contented mind knows itself, with a lack of internal conflict it is able to see more clearly. Self awareness is the way through which you can experience a more fulfilling life.

You are one of the best things you can invest in. Whether you are growing greater at your strengths, reducing your liabilities, or expanding what you are capable of, personal development is a path. This is no journey anyone can take for you, you must find the courage to take it for yourself. Push, again and again, beyond your resistance and doubt and you will soar!….You have the power to fulfill your dreams!

“Do not dilute the truth of your potential. We often convince ourselves that we cannot change, that we cannot overcome the circumstances of our lives. That is simply not true. You have been blessed with immeasurable power to make positive changes in your life. But you can’t just wish it, you can’t just hope it, you can’t just want it… you have to LIVE it, BE it, DO it.”
Steve Maraboli,
