Personal Development is a Challenge

Giziyah Ezekiel Williams
Posted January 3, 2020 from Nigeria

Personal development is a push. It’s a struggle. It’s a challenge. There wouldn’t be any winning without a challenge. That’s what life is all about. It’s the struggle and the challenge to develop ourselves and our skills to see what we can create in the way of value in the marketplace. It’s taking those skills and value to the marketplace and seeing what it will return for us.

New habits don’t come easy, but they can be developed. Sometimes when you develop a lot of momentum in one direction, it’s not that easy to change, but it is possible. It isn’t easy, but it’s possible. Somebody once said, “Success is 10 percent inspiration and 90 percent perspiration.” You’ve just got to read the books, learn the skills, put yourself through the paces, do the mental pushups and get yourself ready.

Inspiration is fine, but inspiration must lead to discipline. It’s one thing to be motivated, but it’s another thing to be motivated sufficiently to take the classes, do the reading, do the repetition, go through it over and over, until it becomes part of you. And those are challenges. They’re not easy, but they’re challenges that if you win and develop and grow, that’s what determines your place, your return, your equity, the worth you get from the marketplace.

Hello Giziyah,

Welcome to World Pulse! I agree that always learning and growing is essential for living, but I'm curious why you think that's it a struggle? It can be challenging, I totally agree. But I'm also curious why you're so passionate about personal development? Your parents must have really instilled this value in you. I think that our growth is part of our worth, but my goal isn't to grown and learn to make money and succeed in the marketplace any longer. For me, growth is about authenticity, development of one's self to fulfill our mission, to help others, and last, but not least, so we can have the best life possible, in all aspects: mind, body and spirit. What are your thoughts? Thanks for sharing this thought-provoking post, and also for sharing your thoughts, dear. Looking forward to seeing more posts from you.

Thank you Jil
