“Life is difficult,” and personal growth is a "complex, arduous and lifelong task." These thoughts open Scott Peck’s famous book, The Road Less Traveled. For most of us the busy-ness of daily life consumes our time and attention, leaving personal development on the shelf until a crisis hits and we have to make changes. We cope with how things are – not too bad, not exactly the level of success we may dream of someday. We are doing OK.
What if OK isn’t enough anymore? You may know what to do to improve the results you’re getting, and you may even know how to do it. And yet you stay in the same rut, blaming yourself and settling for disappointing results.
Maybe it’s about comfort – coping with the current situation is about what you’ve always done, and it’s relatively comfortable. You can cope with how things are. But coping with the status quo is trading comfort for results. And the truth is that making some changes through personal development doesn't have to be difficult.
Here are some simple changes that can get you started.
- Read or listen to inspiring or motivational teachers for 30 minutes a day. There is a list of resources on my website.
- Take a walk every day. Notice everything around you – what you see, hear, feel – and turn off the worry-mind.
- Hang out with positive, growing, successful people and let their wisdom rub off on you.
You can begin to move from coping and just OK, to wide-awake creating whatever you can dream for your life. I’m here to help get you started.
