Personal development: magic ingredient to achieve our dream life

Jim Rohn on the importance of personal development

For things to change you have to change – Jim Rohn.

By Jacqueline Antonetti-Moreno

“Success is something you attract by the person you become” Jim Rohn when he spoke about the importance of personal development.

It is no secret that one of the main interests of human beings is to succeed. However, not everyone is willing to do the first thing we need to do to get the desired result: to become the person who has the skills, abilities and wisdom to achieve that dream we have in our mind.

Why do I say that? Here is an example that although basic and generic, helps us have a clear idea of the approach of the average human. The word “success” has more than 360,000 searches on Google and “personal development” has only 27,000. I wonder how people can think that they could reach the much desired success (whatever their own definition for that term is) without improving their personal skills and knowledge.

Tranformation is possible… If we take action!

La transformación hay que vivirla

“Transformation is an experiential event.”Barbara De Angelis, Power of Success, Toronto 2015.

Throughout my life I have heard many people complain about their reality and verbally express their desire for a better life, a better job, a better partner, a better finances, in short, a better reality in their lives. In fact, for years I was one of those people.

However, as I have witnessed cases of alleged transformation desires, I have also seen people’s inaction and their unwillingness to make “their share” to achieve the desired change. And, again, I must admit that I was also part of that group of people.

Perhaps you wonder what is my part? And the answer to that question is one word: “action”. What action? Any action that allows you to leave the status quo and start moving in the direction of your dreams. It is not the size of the action, is about “interrupting” the state of inactivity and start moving. Once we start this process of movement, the road begins to unveil in front of us as we go; that’s why you do not need to be absolutely clear on all the details of the ‘how’. However, a plan is needed.

As I have stated on several occasions after publishing my digital book “From Dreaming to Achieving” (currently in Spanish, soon to be available in English) every dream is possible to be achieved, and it’s built step by step. We should not be intimidated by the size of our dream, much less by what others say, we must only focus on taking action and start moving towards our vision. I like to constantly repeat, “the impossible just takes longer to be achieved.” And I repeat it because I believe it. I have proof. My life is an example of that; the book I wrote, (I, a perfect stranger) reaching No. 1 in sales on Amazon is a proof of that. Read the rest of this entry
