The need to work on your business on a regular and consistent basis is obvious if you want to it to succeed. The importance of this is referenced frequently all over the internet. Working on yourself however is equally as important but something that is not so often
referred to in the context of building your business.
The late great Jim Rohn’s mentor told him ‘if you want to be wealthy and happy, learn to work harder on yourself than you do on your job’. This was a rule that Jim Rohn lived by and became a very successful businessman. Interestingly he noted that income rarely exceeds personal development. Some people may become rich by chance or by luck such as winning the lottery but if they have not learnt how to handle this kind of money they usually end up without it and back at square one.
People who grow themselves alongside their business learn how to deal with the responsibilities that come with having money. It is said that if you divided all the money in the world equally between all the people in the world, it would end up back in the same pockets.
There are many more reasons why you should be working on yourself besides the financial aspect. On going self development is a must if you want to be a success in any area of life. It is important to always be striving to move forward, make more progress and continue to learn. Personal development or self development, there are lots of different ways of describing it. They all boil down to the same thing though; taking the time and, making the commitment, to invest in your greatest resource – you.
Some people feel self development is a bit airy fairy, some people can’t see the value in it, especially when the outcome is not immediately obvious.However, If you speak to or read about people who are considered to be successful, they will all tell you that success comes from within, and having the ability to manage yourself in a variety of situations. That ability comes through personal development. When you put the effort into developing yourself, the rewards are amazing! It’s something I have been doing for a few years now and it’s a habit that has become a little bit addictive.
I started listening to audiobooks on my to and from work, it makes the commute more enjoyable and means I am starting the day on a positive note. I’ve listened to many great book over the last few years, but there is one that I keep coming back too; ‘The Success Principles, How To Get From Where You Are To Where You Want To Be?’ There is so much valuable content in here which continues to be motivating and inspiring no matter how many times you hear it. The reason I started meditating was because of this book. Because this book has been an integral part of my journey up to now and I know it will continue to be so in the future, I want to share it with you. So once a month I am going to go look at one principle in detail.
That’s all for now, I am working hard at getting my video module course finished, very pleased with my progress so far!
Bye for now 🙂
