The Importance of Personal Development

Personal Development - Direction

Ever had an AMAZING business idea, opportunity or goal, but weren’t sure how to turn your idea into actionable steps?

This happens to EVERYONE. It’s not because you don’t have the passion or drive to make it happen, it’s because you don’t have the TOOLS. Ultimately, how can you drive across the USA without a car, the tool that’ll get you there? If you want to go from where you are today and get to the success of tomorrow, you need the right tools and direction.

How do you head in the right direction?

Personal development.

In psychology “Personal development” refers to the development of self-awareness, talents, and identity, towards the progression of some overall life goal.

I’ve spent my adult career in a constant state of personal development. It is this continual learning that keeps me ahead in the race.

Though we all start out in different stages, personal development is about investing in yourself to develop new skills, knowledge and experiences to become a top performer in your chosen profession.

First step: What’s your goal?

My Goal: Be in the top 2% of my industry and build a company that drastically improves the businesses I work with.

How am I going to accomplish this? By focusing on what I need to learn and do to reach this goal.

I then apply what I learn and take the distillation of my experiences to grow my own businesses and exponentially grow the businesses I work with through the knowledge and skills I’ve developed.

What do I do? I prioritize transferable skills and discipline.

Transferable skills

  1. Strategy
  2. Writing
  3. Problem Solving
  4. Storytelling
  5. Speaking
  6. Selling
  7. Technology


  1. Daily communication with members of my network
  2. Reading a book a week (Focusing on books that are adding to my professional aim)
  3. Weekly change in perspective (For me, it’s through traveling over the weekends)
  4. Eating Healthy
  5. Daily Exercise – at least 30min
  6. Lots of water with lemon
  7. Make eye contact with everyone
  8. Personal and professional dress

This is the best course of action I’ve ever taken to increase my personal and professional value and discover the actionable steps necessary to succeed. It isn’t a cakewalk. In exchange for your time, effort and discipline to better yourself you will receive the empowerment necessary to achieve your AMAZING business idea, opportunity or goal.
