Personal Growth shouldn’t be boring! It shouldn’t feel like a chore and it sure as hell shouldn’t be a waste of your time.
If you’ve ever had someone recommend a personal growth book or conference that bored you to tears, it might have completely turned you off to the whole idea of a personal growth journey. I get it! There are some horrible, boring, and irrelevant books out there that can make it seem impossible for this whole thing to ever be fun.
One of the first personal growth books that I read was basically forced on myself and my coworkers by a new boss. We even had a book club meeting to discuss it. And the book was HORRIBLE. I’ve never been so bored or been beaten over the head by such a basic concept in my life. I wish that book was the exception but there are so many books that somehow make the best seller list and couldn’t be more boring if they tried.
But other people might love them. And that’s totally fine. Those books aren’t right for my journey – and they may or may not be right for you.
In fact, maybe books at all aren’t right for you. Maybe you just don’t learn that way. It doesn’t have to be a book at all! So toss that belief out the window.
Personal development is classes, conferences, books, podcasts, videos, and even friends and coworkers. Anything that you can learn from is helping you grow as a person.
Personal growth just means that you are learning and growing. That’s it. Pick something you enjoy and go for it!
