My Top Three Reasons For Pursuing Personal Development

What do you tell people when they ask why you are following a self development plan? For me there are numerous answers to this question. I decided to share a few today and will probably go into more detail in future blogs.

  1. Because I can:  I ask myself why wouldn't I want to improve myself everyday. Humans are the only entities on earth that do not become all they can be. A tree will grow as tall as it's environment will allow. Animals will follow their instincts and develop to their full potential. For some reason most humans will follow the path of least resistance. I choose not to follow this path.
  2. No Regrets: When I'm on my death bed I do not want to keep asking myself why I did not do this or that. I want to be able to tell myself that I did all that was possible and then some.
  3. Sense of Purpose: Having a personal development plan and following it gives me as sense of purpose. You can not drift through life and feel fulfilled. You need something to aim for, a reason to get out of bed and get your day started. 
Feel free to share your reasons for your personal development plans.
