I'm pretty big on business development. Like most, my goal is to carve my path to success. So I am quick to invest in opportunities I feel will grow me in the right direction. These investments always pay off, so I'm more than happy to seek help when needed.
- If there is a coach or a professional that can help break me open in an area where I'm closed, sign me up.
- If there is a skill that I need to pick up to advance more swiftly, I'm ready to master it.
- If I am stuck, I'm looking for the nearest solution to getting unstuck.
But up until last week, these investments were always made with business and professional development in mind. So when an opportunity to participate in a workshop came that focused on one of my personal blank spots, I jumped on it.
Six days in and I see how this much-needed personal development work will positively impact my business. You can work and work, push and push, and hide from your sh&$! by only focusing on your business. But if you're not at peace personally, what are you working toward?
The Real: Do the work, EVERYWHERE. Investing in personal development can be more rewarding than business development. You get to work on filling in your blank spots, plus, it's a win-win from every direction.
