Will You Be Willing To Change... If Your Goal Requires You To Be Different?

15th June 2022 Self-Development

One important observation I have made over the years concerning why many people don't make significant progress towards some personal goal... is that many people aren't ready to fully commit to the "relationship".

Knowing Your Personality Type Is Important

6th June 2022 Self-Development

Are you an Introvert or Extrovert (sometimes spelled as Extravert)? Does it even matter? Most importantly, does it contribute in any significant way to the progress you intend to make towards your goals?

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. Although you know just how hard it is to get into some kind of business for yourself, you are determined to turn the one thing you are most passionate about… into a life of making money from your dream.

Spending Your Time On Your Development

30th November 2020 Self-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.

Being Inspired By An Achiever’s Work Ethic Vs Their Eventual Success

15th November 2020 Self-Development

Many of us who pursue goals were inspired by those who went before us and accomplished similar goals. What they attained, created, or became… to us seemed cool, exciting, and worth the effort that even we decided to go down a similar path.

The More Work You Put Into Your Goals… The More You Change

11th November 2020 Self-Development

Your strategy, choices, and actions change the deeper you get in your pursuit. Working on your goals will change you. Being exposed more and more to whatever is in the core of your industry, will influence what you do and how you think. It can change how you continue with that pursuit.

Delayed Appreciation And The Reality Of Pursuing Long Term Goals

4th November 2020 Self-Development

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. Maybe you see an opportunity to provide delivery services because people can’t move freely these days because of the pandemic. 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.

Taking Responsibility For Unwanted Outcomes

15th July 2020 Self-Development

When it comes to pursuing goals… one of the strangest and probably the most heartbreaking lessons I have ever had to learn, is that you have to take some level of responsibility for unwanted outcomes.

Forming Alliances That Lead To Bigger And Better Results

25th January 2020 Self-Development

The biggest weakness you can ever have as a dreamer is the inability to develop strategic/productive relationships.

You Become What You Repeatedly Do

28th December 2019 Self-Development

If you are a dreamer, like me, I want to teach you a little trick I use to overcome self-doubt. You can use it every time you feel overwhelmed, discouraged, or frustrated that things aren’t going as you planned… or if progress seems extremely slow.

Continuous And Never Ending Improvement

25th November 2019 Self-Development

Creating permanent change in your life is no easy task. It’s also not a “one-time” task either. In order to bring long-lasting positive change, you are going to be doing a set of tasks, on an ongoing basis. It’s similar to how top-performing athletes don’t just quit working out after they have won 1 championship. Continuous and never-ending improvement is a lifestyle choice critical for anyone seeking success.

Dealing With The Pressure, Stress And Anxiety That Comes With Deciding To Pursue Your Calling

3rd June 2018 Self-Development

Working on building a better life for yourself is certainly no easy task. It’s can get extremely difficult for even the most success-focused among us. The fear of failure, the fear of never meeting your goals are things you will have to battle with a lot. Especially early on. And it doesn’t help that you will most likely have to go through these challenges all by yourself. Because not everyone will support or believe in you.
