I’ve been preaching self development for some time now, and it’s only just occurred to me that I may have failed to convey a strong enough reason for you to buy into it.
Why should everyone be engaging in self development and implementing it as a foundation for all action and intention?
Well, the truth is. Self development is the only guaranteed way to become the person you need to be, in order to achieve the things you wish to achieve.
You see, life doesn’t come as an ideal package. If it did, there would be no enjoyment in it. Life comes as a deconstructed, blank slate. In order to experience your ideal life, you must create it.
As we know from observing the outside world, very few people actually manage to construct their ideal life. With this in mind, it’s safe to make the assumption that creating your ideal lifestyle is a difficult feat.
Do not let this dishearten you, thats what makes the ‘ideal life’ so beautiful. If it wasn’t scarce, it wouldn’t be the ideal life. Humans are drawn to scarcity and individuality.
Our journey as a human being, is to take our blank slate and shape it into a master piece. Against all odds, we must find a way to rise above mediocrity, conformity and illusion. This is incredibly difficult to do when you start from scratch.
As we grow older, our experiences, environment and DNA shape our slate. We begin to filter certain aspects of life and enhance others. Sometimes for the better, others for the worse.
For the first portion of our life – roughly 0 – 20 years – The crafting of our slate is in the hands of the outside world. Our parents, teaches and friends mould and shape who we become. Then we enter the real world and based on our first quarter, we either shoot for the top or spiral to the bottom.
While this sounds like a predetermined, un-influenceable experience, It isn’t. But the belief that it is imprisons us. There’s no person waiting for us at the door to the real world, ready to tell us that from here on out we have full control of our future. As a result, many of us continue life with the mindset shaped by school. A model that relies on being told what we can do, be and become.
Thats where I come in. I have dedicated myself to becoming that man, waiting at the gate to the real world. To tell you that you have full control. To gift you with the skill and mentality of self development. One that when applied and honed, will eventually lead to the illusive, ideal life.
Self development is the ONLY practice than can steal your future from the hands of fate and pass it to the hands of effort. The only way to guarantee your spot in your ideal world, is to enhance everything that is you.
When you grow physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. You become the person that is not only worthy, but also capable of achieving the lifestyle you wish to have.
A life without self development is analogous to entering the ocean without learning to swim.
