"Personal development is the belief that you are worth the effort, time and energy needed to develop yourself." – Denis Waitley
What are you worth? I’m not asking about your portfolio value, real estate, stocks, or other financial investments. I’m not asking to find out how many streams of income you have or what the total value of your businesses are. I want to know what you think you are worth, because if you value yourself enough, you will invest in developing yourself.
Denis Waitley captures the essence of personal development: It’s a belief about how you see yourself.
When you say “yes” to your personal development, you are making a statement to everyone around you that is unmistakably clear. You are saying “I believe in me.” You proclaim your self-worth. You make a value statement about yourself. You tell others that you are going somewhere and becoming the best edition of yourself you can be. You are making a positive lifestyle change that will alter the course of your life. Based on your self-development, what statement have you made to yourself and those around you?
What you believe is contagious. What you believe about yourself causes others to want to join you on the journey of personal growth because of who are you are becoming. You shout from the rooftops an invitation for others to join you. Who are you attracting? If others won’t join you, don’t use that as an excuse not to start your own journey. Don’t wait on others. As you grow, others will see the changes in you. They will ask you questions about the changes they see. This is your opportunity to recruit them to start their own journey, by sharing your story. Show them where to start their journey to personal growth into their greatness.
Self-development is a process that will take you a lifetime to fulfill. It can be overwhelming. Where do you start? I shared a several ways to grow in episodes 67-68. The best way to grow is with a group of like-minded people, all focused on personal growth. These groups are an investment of money and time. How much are you worth?
