Everyone is into personal development these days.
Even the business coaches I hire and follow all have a personal development component. They don’t just talk about marketing or strategic planning, they talk about mindset, they talk about visualizing, and they talk about how ‘thoughts become things.’
So the personal development field is saturated. And here I am. Sometimes I wonder if one more voice is even needed. I wonder if I have anything new to say. I wonder if what I do makes a difference.
I realized recently that I have been a ‘student’ of personal development for so long that I’ve never claimed my expertise. I’ve been on the personal development bandwagon since 1989 – that’s 28 years. That’s longer than many of the current experts.
Isn't it time you claimed your expertise?
Back in 2000, I attended a New Thought retreat and Rev. Mary Tumpkin said that contemporary writers are taking our words and selling them back to us.
And I was buying.
And when I read or hear a contemporary writer saying things that I’ve been studying or saying myself for years and marketing it as if it was new and brilliant material, I’m amazed.
It’s time to trust myself, my wisdom, and my skills.
And it’s time for you to trust yours as well.
We need to start before we feel ready. We need to trust that if we have an idea, we are ready. If we wait until we ‘feel’ ready, we will never begin and we’ll find ourselves right where we are a year from now.
Making a commitment to ourselves and our dreams is beyond feeling. There are days we will not feel like doing something – but we need to do it anyway.
Anyone who has achieved a level of success didn’t feel like ‘doing’ something every day, but they made a commitment and did it. Athletes practice every day even if they don’t feel like it. Artists create every day even if they don’t feel like it. You get the idea.
Trust your brilliance, trust your dreams, and trust your ideas.
We need to stop trusting those “I don’t feel like it” thoughts. They are in the sabotage business.
If we can do something small every day, that Monkey Mind will become quieter. If you need help with a plan, let’s chat. We can do this together.
