If you want to change the world around you, you must start with yourself.
We aren’t born amazing leaders, great business people, influencers, awesome parents, awesome wives, great sisters, a person who knows their purpose, Christians… what have you! We have to constantly work on ourselves to improve in those areas! Even if you think are awesome at those things, there will always be room for improvement!
When I decided to start my own business, I knew that I was weak in many areas of my life due to lack of life experience. I started working on my personal development back in 2008 when I had my first real bout of serious depression. (I had never picked up a book outside of my school books and assigned non-fiction.) I was never taught how to develop the person I was. I knew that medication was not going to change my thought process, and the person that I was. I wanted to make a real change in myself!! I wanted to be a stronger more independent person. So after hearing my Mom tell me 500 times to read personal development, I finally decided to pick up a few books geared towards women, and developing a strong internal happiness (rather than relying on outside factors).
Personal development has helped me to climb out of depression, has helped me to become a better leader, a better wife, a better friend and a better daughter! Personal development has also made me into a better business person! I had seen the amazing changes of reading “pd” every day in my life, so I drill “PD” into my coaches! I have also seen some amazing changes and growth among my coaches from implementing daily “pd”.
I have a long way to go, so I will not stop reading! I spend 1-2 hours a day reading personal development, and it has been a huge driver in my business and personal life!
