Are You Ready to Make a Change?

Over the last 30+ years, thousands of people have used my personal development plan to transform their lives and build the future they want for themselves and their families.

Research has shown that fully 95% of what you do or say is determined by your habits. When I was starting out in my career, I struggled to form the habits that I knew would help me get where I wanted to go. I had to learn for myself how to develop these success-creating habits and personality traits. Once I did - my career, income, and happiness started to skyrocket faster than I thought possible.

If you have goals you want to achieve or new skills you want to develop, there are specific actions that you can start taking this moment to make those dreams happen. Below, I share the proven strategies I’ve personally used to produce the results that I want in my life. By using these strategies, you can learn to do the same.

What is Personal Development?

Personal development isn’t something that happens to you - it’s something that you must chose to do for yourself. But once you make that choice, you need to have the right tools to put it into action successfully. Here are a few powerful personal development skills.

  • What you focus on grows - Focus on positive thoughts, feelings, and ideas. When you do, those will begin to spread into your entire life like a tree soaking up water from a fresh spring.
  • Start your day right - Before you turn on the TV or radio, or read the news, spend some time first thing in the morning to read something motivational, inspirational, or educational. Make the first thing you put into your mind something that is consistent with the life you want to have.
  • Write down your goals - Studies show that people who write down their goals are much more likely to achieve them. Write them out in present tense, as if you have already achieved them.

Create Your Own Personal
Development Plan

Study after study proves that you are far more likely to achieve your financial, health, and lifestyle goals if you write down a personal development plan. Here are a few first steps that will get you started.

  • Create a mission statement - Write down a clear, concise statement that describes the kind of person you intend to become. If you have a certain annual salary you want to earn then this statement will describe how you will maximize your time and energy to achieve that.

Achieve Your Personal Development Goals

One of the best ways to reach your personal development goals is through the incredible power of habit. From losing weight to making more money, you can radically transform your life just with a few simple habits. But how do you actually form a new habit? Here are the steps that I’ve used to develop successful habits and reshape my life.

  • Make a decision - First, you must decide to do something different. Whether it’s waking up early to exercise or listening to audio tapes on the way to work, you have to make a firm decision to do it.
  • No exceptions - You must not make any exceptions to your habit, especially during the formative period at the beginning. Make sure you perform your new habit every single day.
  • Visualize it - Create a clear picture in your mind of you performing the habit every day. This will force your subconscious to accept this new behavior.
