PIB47 – Business And Personal Development

by | May 26, 2016 | Podcast | 0 comments

Business and personal development go hand in hand and are a necessity.  By investing in yourself (your skills, awareness, and your potential) you can greatly enhance your productivity and results that you are trying so hard to get in your business.  Understanding and putting aside time to work on personal development is an incredible stepping stone that will help you build a strong foundation for your goals and what you want to accomplish.

This weeks episode for the Passion In Business Podcast is a one-on-one episode where I share with you my thoughts on personal development, why I believe in it so much, and how you can start to implement it into your daily routine (and be grateful for it too!).

Personal development is something that I have personally thrown myself into and I am definitely passionate about.  I feel that this is a really important topic and that it is one of the many things (and honestly one of the most important ones) that builds a foundation for your business and for your life!  You are your foundation of your business and if you don’t work on yourself first, then your business is more likely to crumble when put under pressure.  Build a strong business by building a strong foundation.  This is a major lesson that I like to point out to people and that I would teach in a coaching call with a client.

You are your businesses.  Business and personal development go hand-in-hand.

Self development is you making the decision to work towards the things that you are worth, that you know you deserve.  I am a firm believer that you can have anything you want — if you are willing to work for it.  If you are willing to put in the time and the effort to get to where you want to be, you will get there.  Self development is simply the vehicle to get you there.

I have a lot of personal background and history when it comes to self development and it is something that has helped me get to where I am in life.  By working on myself as a person, I have been able to get out of a lot of hard times and challenges that I have faced.  You learn from the experiences and mistakes that you make and I have done the same thing!  I share a bit of my story in the podcast episode and you can listen in to hear that story and why I was a little nervous (at first) to share it with you.

Long story short, I have dealt with anxiety and high amounts of stress in my life the last couple of years — something I am sure a lot of you reading this can actually relate to!  By working on myself, by building my skills and knowledge around business and personal development, I have been able to not only grow as a person but also be able to work on these personal issues and build a stronger foundation for my business.

Because of personal development, I have been able to go from taking 2-3 hours to edit the audio of my podcast episode to not editing (almost) at all because I am a lot less self conscious about the things I say on my show, and how I say them.  I have grown as a person and built my confidence in myself. Personal development has allowed me to be more open minded to my surroundings and notice all of the doors and opportunities that have been opened up for me.

What I do to work on self development

Most people believe that we will learn and development as a human being naturally just by living.  While this is partially true — there is so much more than you can do, so much more that you can learn, and so much more effort that you can put into building your business foundation.
I strongly recommend to put aside a specific amount of time every single day to work on your own self development.  I generally put aside a minimum of 2 hours every single day but I know that for most people, this can be hard.  Even if you can’t do a couple of hours a day, make the commitment to do a minimum of one hour, 30 minutes, or even 10 minutes a day and that will add up and you will start to see a difference in your life.

Tips to accomplish business and personal development on a day to day basis:

  • listen to podcasts or audio books
  • save videos and watch them on Youtube
  • read a new book (cliche, but still relevant!)
  • work it into your daily routine

You are flawed — and that is ok.  Everybody is flawed.  The key is to understand your weaknesses, be ok with them, and then be willing to work on them.

Don’t forget to take action and to make it a conscious decision to make a difference in your life and work on your business and personal development.  This is one of the best ways that you can have an edge over your competition and stand out in this crowded world.
