Category: Personal development
Welcome to the Personal development category on this blog. You are here on this planet for four basic reasons – (1) to create value, (2) to enjoy life, (3) to connect with other people and to (4) learn and grow.
The “learn and grow” part of the mission you have in your life is the duty to become the best version of yourself and leave a positive legacy behind. And the way to become the best version of yourself is to commit to regular personal development and constant improvement.
Personal development is about getting to know yourself, examining your life and your past, understanding your strengths and weaknesses, and then building strong foundations for a happy and successful life in the future. Day by day, you improve different areas of life and your character, and over time that accumulates in great results and accomplishments.
The good news is that improving yourself is a rewarding and fun experience by itself. Well, personal development is far from an easy task, but when you learn to enjoy the path itself and accept your limits, personal development becomes one of the most divine experiences on the planet – because you positively influence your own life, the people around you and maybe even succeed in making a dent in the universe.
There is no greater legacy than changing the world by changing yourself.
This category is a collection of blog posts dedicated to general personal development. The articles below are organized by date published. If you want to just skim the headlines of the articles to find the right one for yourself, go ahead.
But if you want to learn everything about personal development in a systematic step-by-step way, I suggest you go to the Personal development track, where personal development blog posts are grouped logically by different sub-topics of personal development.
There are generally two ways how people fuck up their lives. Don’t get me wrong, I know that many people living in poverty without access to education don’t have options and are forced to do terrible things that don’t bring any good to them and others. But there are also many adults who have all the options and possibilities in the world and still end up fucking up their own lives or lives of people around them. It’s hard to answer why, but it’s very easy to see how. The first way is making one big wrong decision. You marry
I’ve frequently mentioned that you need an environment that supports you at achieving your goals, an environment where you fit in perfectly. To prosper in life, you need to be a part of something that feels like home and natural to you, and enables you to prosper, develop and grow. You need an environment with ideal conditions for you to thrive. To better understand what ideal conditions really mean, let’s look at the environmental variables you can choose from and even change if necessary. It’ll help you to clarify what ideal environmental conditions mean for you and how to build
The key to a more successful life is having a superior strategy for living it. Hoping that everything turns out okay is not a strategy. Your life strategy is especially shaped by your beliefs, values, personal management system, and thus by your decisions about spending your time, energy, money, skills and other resources. After setting your life vision, you should think carefully over your life strategy and the direction it’s taking you in. This blog post will help you with that. For extraordinary results, you need an extraordinary approach. For extraordinary life, you need an extraordinary strategy. Even if you don’t have
Let’s start with the statement that life isn’t fair. I think almost everybody would agree on that. But if life isn’t fair to everybody, then it somehow is fair to everyone? Well, not so fast, this is just a little mind game to open your mind. Now let’s try to really analyze whether or not life isn’t fair. On the micro-level (everyday life) we really could say that life is fair. We all have our struggles, we all have to face obstacles, unfulfilled desires and disappointments. The extent of the challenges we have to face is very different for each
You become a successful entrepreneur not because you know how to build a company, but because you have a superior understanding of the customers and their needs. You can simply hire people for everything else (very simplified). It’s the same in your personal life. If you want to be really successful and happy in life, you have to know who you are and what you want very clearly and also understand your environment in order to build the superior strategy for achieving your life vision. Knowing yourself is one of the most important things in life. It's the first step. It’s
