Working On Yourself Is A Never Ending Quest

To get ahead in this world you have to learn to “work harder on yourself than you do on your job”

After I initially heard that it turned me on to personal development and I worked hard on my own personal growth, and I must admit that this was the most challenging assignment of all. But understand, this business of personal development lasts a lifetime.

Yes, the money, the physical aspects of the degree of success you achieve is good, but the evolution of the person is even more enriching and rewarding.

You see, what you become is far more important than what you get. The important question to ask on any job is not, “What am I getting?” Instead, you should ask, “What am I becoming?” Getting and becoming are so closely intertwined that what you become directly influences what you get. Think of it this way: Most of what you have today you have attracted by becoming the person you are right now.

It seems a spooky coincidence that income rarely exceeds personal development. Sometimes income takes a lucky jump, but unless you learn to handle the responsibilities that come with it, it will usually shrink back to the amount you can handle. If someone handed you a million dollars, you’d better hurry up and become what it takes to be a millionaire. A very rich man once said, “If you took all the money in the world and divided it equally among everybody, it would soon be back in the same pockets it was before.”

It is hard to keep that which has not been obtained through personal development.

“To have more than you’ve got, you have to become more than you are.” Jim Rohn (late)

This is where you should focus most of your attention. Otherwise, you just might have to contend with the axiom of not changing, which is:

Unless you change how you are, you’ll always have what you’ve got.

Change is down to simply identification of your Motivation, creating and working a Plan and managing the Growth that ensues. I can help you identify your motivation, your reasons for pursuing your dreams. I can show you how best to achieve those dreams and what skills you need to improve and build on to get you to your destination faster.
