Personal development training is important. Why? Because we all want better results.

Results are the name of the game!

It doesn't matter how well you are doing right now, it is possible to improve upon your current results. It doesn't matter how much you have in your account right now, you probably could do with some more. It doesn't matter what car you are driving, you would probably like a better one. It doesn't matter how well (or how badly) things are going for you right now, you would agree that things could be better. And if things were going better for us, then that would be a good thing.

We all want our results to improve. And it is true that no matter what is your current situation, improvement is always possible and should be sought.

Take this phrase, and tattoo it onto the back of your hand, where you can see it:

"No matter what your current situation, improvement is always possible, and should be sought".

This means that things can, and should, get better. But they will only get better, if, and only if, your own performance gets better. Meaning, if you want things to improve, then you must improve your own performance. Therefore we might reformulate the above slogan and say

"No matter what is your current level of performance, improvement is always possible."

Why is it important that you continually strive to improve upon your existing level of performance? There are many answers to this question:

1. Because the quality of your performance is the biggest single factor in the quality of the results you enjoy, (or suffer). Since you are the one person in your life that is always there, exerting an influence for good or ill, it is your own performance, more than anyone else's, that will make the biggest contribution to your future prosperity or poverty.

2. Because you are in competition with many others for the same resources, and if they are improving and you are merely, 'staying the same', then relatively, you are not staying the same, you are regressing, (relative to the competition).

3. Because life is evolutionary. Life demands that you evolve by successive modifications and improvements, into an ever more complex and elegantly productive organism. Progress is your purpose!

4. Because in life, there is a law which states, 'use it, or lose it'. If you don't use it, you lose it. Meaning, if you don't use your strength, you lose your strength. If you don't use your memory and try to remember, you will forget. If you don't use your knowledge, you lose your knowledge. If you don't use your mind, you lose your mind.

5. Because 'to him that has, more will be given'. Meaning, if you do use your strength, you will gain more strength. You can become immensely strong, only by continually challenging your existing limits. The more you try to use your existing knowledge, the greater knowledge you will gain. The more you try to provide products, services and help to others, then the more you will be offered the products, services and help from others. The more massive the body, the more it attracts additional mass and the less massive the body, the less it attracts. So the winners tend to win again. And the rich get richer. Strange, but true.

For all these reasons it is vital that you commit to a programme of personal development.

Personal development - In what areas of performance?

Here is the list of things that you need to develop.

1. Your ability to think logically and make rational evaluations and decisions.

2. The ability to communicate effectively in both the written and the spoken form.

3. The ability to decide upon which goal, is the goal, that you will commit yourself a hundred percent to achieving, within the limited time you have available.

4. The ability to plan your work, so that you are always doing the most valuable thing, in the right way; (and not wasting your time on things that don't count for much).

5. The ability to gain the cooperative assistance of other people. Since you cannot achieve much on your own, and since you don't live on a desert island, and since you only progress by means of rendering products and services to others, then it is important to recognise that other people are vital to your own success.

6. The ability to create, in your own soul, the positive emotions of ambition, confidence, motivation, enthusiasm and personal initiative.

7. The ability to purge, from your own soul, the emotions of anger, resentment, bitterness, revenge, fear, anxiousness and a longing for a return to the good old days.

8. The ability to inspire positive emotions in others around you. You need to use your language in order to help others to feel the same emotions as you do; emotions of great ambition, self-confidence, a high degree of motivation, enthusiasm and personal initiative.

How could you develop these qualities?

One of the best ways is to attend our two-day personal development training course. On that course we cover all of the above items, and we will show you how to put each one into practice.
