We’re on episode 15 and I really want to jump into self-development and how we can really change your life.
A couple of months back I probably would say about six or seven months back I really drove into what self-development was all about the self-help books things like that and I can honestly say I thought I was ready for it but I was not. I started out with audible I started using audible because I’m not really a person that will grab a book and start reading it honestly puts me to sleep.
I was listening to these people who were obviously very fortunate in life and they like had their books being published and that’s a huge thing in there on the New York Times bestseller list. Things like that and I just have opened up my mind yet to what all it kind of takes to really dive into self-development and that’s kind of why I’m here today because once I was able to open up my mind.
I hate to say I but it was life-changing. Like I kind of became a different version of myself and I didn’t even realize the old me how toxic that was and really the whole point of this episode is to kind of encourage everyone that you should always be you know trying to work not only on your strengths but also on your weaknesses and trying to figure out how can you develop certain skills in life to get you where you’d like to be. So again I’m so excited that you have decided to be here with me on the creative pod.
You have no idea how much I get it. There are certain people in my life that I’ve been trying to encourage self-development because it has honestly had a huge impact on my life. But they aren’t open to it as much as I was in and I understand. The first book I listened to was very geared toward not religion per se but like having a faith-based goal as well as like ways that you can change yourself.
And for some reason, I just felt like I was being sold something.
I have worked in sales almost my whole life, and I didn’t like that feeling. I didn’t like that I felt like I was trying to be convinced that something was the right way. I realized that it was the author’s fault it wasn’t the words that they had said it was my mindset. That is one of the hardest things to change. But once you realize that that’s what the problem is.
