Personal Development and Why You Need to Invest In It

Personal development is an extremely important topic in my opinion because I find that most of us are stuck in life and we’re clueless about the reason! There are really only two reasons why we get stuck and we stay stuck in life – fear of doing something that pushes us out of our comfort zone, and a lack of skills in a certain area that keeps us stuck and doing the same thing over and over again.

The Reasons We Get Stuck

We most often don’t realize when we need to develop ourselves and grow our skills and knowledge in certain areas. Therefore, we stay in the same situation and cannot move forward.

Every human being needs to be on a path of constant growth because without growth we cannot evolve and get to the next level.  If we don’t evolve, we essentially remain stuck in one place and we blame our circumstances and surroundings for our inability to progress. And honestly, how does the world benefit if we aren’t growing and evolving and making the world a better place for ourselves and for others?

There’s a Great Need for Personal Development

There’s a saying that goes like this – “If you want to go fast go alone, but if you want to go far go with someone”. What we don’t realize is that from the moment we are born we are taught to do every single thing that we do – be it brushing our teeth, boiling a pot of water, learning to play tennis, even speaking a certain language. Everything has been taught to us by someone.

So, once we leave school, why are we so afraid or against the idea of getting a coach or a mentor to help us learn new skills and knowledge that’s going to help us get ahead in life?

I admit there’s a lot of free information floating around on the Internet.  However, it just doesn’t compare to investing in hiring a mentor to help you out. Because free isn’t always good or right!

Too Much Free Information Is a Deterrent to Personal Development

I’m speaking from experience, because at one point in time I didn’t have the money to go to school to learn photography. While I did progress pretty well without formal photography lessons, I soon realized I needed someone to support and walk me through advanced skills.

So, when I went to a live hands-on workshop, I not only acquired photography skills but I also learned invaluable business skills.  My life and business have never been the same again!

I definitely agree that coaching or mentoring isn’t quite so cheap! However, if you measure the progress you make in life as a result of attending workshops or having a coach or mentor supporting you on your path to progress, the dollar cost will soon turn into immense value … sometimes priceless, if you’ve really had a huge shift as a result of the coaching or mentoring.

As I mentioned, you might argue that there is a lot of free information available online, so why pay! In fact, there’s an overwhelming amount of free information out there, but not every piece of information is actionable or applicable to you!  What works for one, may not work for another and that’s what we mostly forget to consider.

A Mentor/Coach Makes a World of Difference

Therefore, having someone to hold your hand, guiding and supporting you would be much better use of your time and energy. It would be at a cost but it’s going to be so much more valuable and on point. Image the progress you make when someone is offering personalized coaching as opposed to watching free YouTube videos and trying to make it work.
