Are You Too Busy Earning A Living to Make Real Money?! Have you Considered Self Development

10 replies
The story goes that a sex guru was once asked why does he have 99 Rolls Royce cars. His answer was: Why do you not have 99 Rolls Royce.

Do you find yourself often getting on with your daily routine to act like a dumb pluck horse with blinders on?

Don't we all on earth to make great things? Do you not believe in yourself? Do you think you cannot make it?

Have you ever done any form of self development? Would you consider it?

    It should be done. Once you start and you learn that one idea that fires up your passions and dreams, that's when you get your life rolling. In my case, I read "The Success Principles" by Jack Canfield right after some tough times, and that's when I learned to create my own possibilities.

    Often, I get caught up in day-to-day smaller task and forget about the bigger picture. I am sure that I am not the only person guilty of it.

    I believe we all have something to give on Earth, our talents are all different.

    Thanks for this helpful post.

    I consider myself busy but not as busy as the people who work 9-5. I am thankful that I have an online job and the time is flexible. I must say that I am making real money and can make time for other things. Self-development. Does this have to be a program or you can do this by yourself. Is reading self-help/self-development articles considered self-development? I am a fan of these articles. I've not read a self-development book but it might be interesting to do so.

  • Self-development should be a continuous process. It is just like learning. Develop yourself in your own ways by studying it and applying it in your life.

    At first my reaction is what?!?! Why would I want something frivolous like 99 rollsroyce cars and then it hit me at the back of my mind I have settled for average dreams. I've only made goals to achieve 5 figure income with my business. So this is a cool reminder to keep aiming higher!

    This should remind freelancers to not only focus on selling their services per hour but to aim on creating products that would help them earn passive income later on. Don't get stuck in just making just enough to be able to afford your expenses and some. Don't neglect working on your own project (your own ebook or blog, not just ghostwriting for others) that will help you earn real money.

    Why do you think some people work and spend so much time working on self-development while others don't give a shit? Some people care so much about their career that self-development becomes inevitable. It always becomes part of the process.

    I personally believe self development is really important for each person. No one perfect. We all have lacking, By self development we can make ourselves better. By improving self development one can perform better in every sector of his life. Now we don't have enough time to go to any guru or expert, but we can take help from internet. There are thousand of resources over internet which can help us a lot. I regularly follow a blog to get some useful information regarding self-development.
