“Every moment of one’s existence, one is growing into more or retreating into less.” ―Norman Maile
Do not delay
BEGIN TODAY, RIGHT NOW. Do not wait another minute to start working on you, start with something as simple as reading a book or exercising for 5 minutes(yes 5 minutes).
Small goals are the way to get going. Now take me for instance if I take on too much at the beginning of a routine; I would get frustrated and stop.
Take baby steps, I promise you; when you have accomplish those, you will be eager to move on to the next goal.
But you must begin right now, remember procrastination will take away from your greatness
The sooner you start, the better you will feel about yourself
Be very deliberate about what you want to achieve and when you want to achieve it
I would like a new car or I need to begin exercising’
I am going to buy a new Mercedes Benz, January,2020. I am going to begin exercising next week Thursday, June 9, 2019 at 6:15 am for 10 minutes.
That is how you hold yourself accountable, when you are working towards a date and time(you are more likely to get it done)
“Life is growth. If we stop growing, technically and spiritually, we are as good as dead.” ―Morihei Ueshiba
A mentor is an experience trusted advisor. Your mentor should be someone who have walked the walk(they have done what you want to do). They will guide you as you go along your journey.
Your mentor will hold you accountable, so whatever you need to do to move to the next level he/she will ensure that you do so
Make sure to choose someone who will not let you off the hook, when you come with your excuses.
Come out of your comfort zone, if you are not uncomfortable with some of what you need to do for your personal growth(you are not doing something right)
I am going to come out of my comfort zone to do a facebook live in another 2 days; I am terrified
But i am going to do it, it might just turn out awful but I am sure I will learn something from it
Furthermore you should not be afraid of making mistakes; it is apart of life.
What is it that you do not like to do?
Driving a car?
Write a book?
Publish your book?
And getting out of a bad relationship?
Always make plans, write down what you want to do and rehearse it Fear The Dream Killer
If your book is a big flap(so what) and the jokes you gave at your first public speaking event (no one laughed)
Guess what, you won’t die, you tried something you were uncomfortable with, in my book that is a win!!
Get out of your comfort zone today, do one thing you never thought you would try.
“Personal development is a major time-saver. The better you become, the less time it takes you to achieve your goals.” ―Brian Tracy
You always have something to give thanks for.
no matter how bad you think your situation is (it could be worse)
Without hard work you cannot be successful.
If you are not willing to do the work no matter how much plans you make, it will be for nothing
They say it takes 10,000 hours to master something; so the more you do it the better you will become.
Make up your mind to have sleepless nights and give up some of your fun time
NEVER GIVE UP
Giving up is not an option
Besides there will be days when every thing goes wrong and you feel like you just cannot be bothered
But do not give up hold on
When you feel like giving up, picture the end result, when you have achieved your goals(how sweet it will be)
Simple daily principles are the game changer
Do not give up on you
Fight for your dreams
If you can survive you can succeed
In addition, remember that your personal growth come before anything else
Do not let your feelings determine what you do
It must be done, so do it even if you do not feel like it
Parties, social media and your favorite movie comes after your personal growth goals
However you need time to exhale, have fun and do the things that make you happy
If you are getting frustrated take a break from work and go have fun
You will come back with a clear mind
Equally important is investing in “you”
Furthermore, do not be afraid to spend money to improve your life
Besides we find it easier to buy a cup of coffee everyday or buy a pair of shoes than invest in a course
However, spend wisely,do your research and make sure the course or coach(yes you need one), will be worth it
Invest your time and money in your growth, you will not regret it.
Personal development is a journey, you will never know everything so keep on improving your life skills
Equally important is self care

Also surround yourself with positive people(persons who believe in improving their lives)
In addition always look at the bigger picture when frustration sets in
Also do not focus on what you can’t change(make a change where you can)
Equally be persistent(never give up)
Personal development is a journey(not a destination)
