There is no secret!
Let’s have a think about it this way:
One of the reasons that people start doing personal development is so that they can improve either one, many or all areas of their life.
But here’s the thing.
Personal development can’t be a one-night-stand event if you are after permanent results.
In fact, I think that personal development should be treated like work.
Because in many ways, it is work.
After all, it can be challenging and time-consuming to actively become introspective about one, many or every aspect of your life.
This process requires humility, time, focus and dedication from you.
So how about we create an equation like this:
Results = Personal Development Work
But what happens if you’re doing the work and not seeing results?
Well that’s where strategy comes in.
After all, if you’re doing a lot of the wrong thing, then it won’t matter how much you do it.
If we want to see results in our life, we need to do a lot of the right thing.
So now the equation becomes like this:
Results = Personal Development Work x Strategy
So if you want your life to work, you have to do the work.
And if the work is not enough, you have to make sure that you’re applying the right strategy.
The same thing goes for everything about your life.
Your financial position.
Quite simply, if you and I are not getting the results we want in any area of our life, it’s either because we’re not doing the work or because we’re not applying the right strategy.
So just change either one – increase the amount of work you do, or change your strategy.
And for bonus points, do both.
And my personal advice – start with strategy first.
Finally, let’s remember this:
If someone, somewhere at sometime has achieved the results we’re after, then those results are possible.
Meaning that you and I can get them too.
So, what are we waiting for?
Let’s go for it!
