What Is Personal Development or Personal Growth?


Kel_jimRohn-150x150Never Thought I’d Be An Entrepreneur

When I started my own home based network marketing business, I did not know anything about being an entrepreneur.  I was taught to have a job and “climb the corporate ladder”.  One of the things which was always emphasized to me by my mentors was “Kellie, you have to start a Personal Development growth plan“.  I had no idea what that meant. 🙄   I didn’t like reading books, so I definitely never read a “self help” book or if I did, I didn’t know what it was.

Jim Rohn, One Of  Our Great Mentors

One of my mentors in my business was Jim Rohn, World Renown International Philosopher, and he said “For Things To Change, I Had To Change.  For Things To Get Better, I Had To Get Better”. I had never heard things like that and I really didn’t understand what that meant at first.  As I read Jim’s books, & listened to his tapes, CDs and seminars, he introduced concepts to me which really started to make me think.

Jim said “Success Is Something You Attract By The Person You Become”.  WOW! That sounded incredible, now how do I become? 😯   Then he said “Work Harder On Yourself Than You Do At Your Job”.  Another foundational principle which was so different from what I had been doing all my life.  I was always working hard at the job, and not working on myself at all!!  Suddenly, I understood why my life was not what I wanted because I was working 14 hrs/day at the JOB (Just Over Broke)!!

Here’s a video featuring Jim Rohn and his introduction to Personal Development:

    Fabulous article. Once I understood this concept and was willing to implement new philosphies and discliplines, only then did I start to see change happen. I am relatively new to personal growth and recognize how valuable it has been for me. Thanks for providing a great explanation of “why?” personal development.

Personal Development became a part of my daily routine, and I found I was “hungry” to learn more and apply it.  One day I realized I really started to “change the way I looked at things” and my family and others around me noticed too.  I then realized I was truly happier!   And I was passionate about what I was doing everyday!  Wow!   I realized that I had totally Changed!
