The Self Development Blog

On this blog, I share with you my journey into the world of Self-Development. I'm convinced that the most efficient path to personal achievement, is through personal growth.

My Journey, Trying To Make A Passion Profitable

28th December 2020 Self-Development

So, you have spent years developing your craft. Your hobby is beginning to look like something you are ready to turn into a profession.

Spending Your Time On Your Development

Sometimes we forget that the main focus of self-development is NOT to read books on a regular basis, or simply reflect on the actions you took because that’s what self-dev people do. Or make sure you develop strategic relationships over time. Those activities are just the “means to an end”. What we truly want from self-development is to actually be in a better situation than we previously were. To have and to live a better life. So we go through various processes (which fall under the umbrella of self-development) to ensure that we turn ourselves into people that actually can realize those goals that we want to accomplish.

Passion and opportunity are very popular reasons why people pursue certain goals in certain industries. Maybe you love to write, so you pursue the dream to become a writer.

It may take time to become a bigshot, but you believe you have something worth pursuing. But whether passion or opportunity is currently motivating someone to pursue a goal… the reality is that eventually, most people quit on their pursuit long before they can realize those goals. 2020 and Beyond Update
