I came across an interesting read from Justin Brown of Ideapod. He refers to a few “rules of life” that I want to share with you:
- Get married before 30. when you are ready
- Retire with enough money. memories
- Become rich. what makes you happy
- Fall in love with someone beautiful. how wonderful I am
- Make many friends. real connections
- Happiness lies in big moments. the little things
- Find someone who loves you. yourself and love yourself
This is a quite simple description of the vision for personal development.
The aim is for you to wake up to who you really are and recognise the power deep within.
The problem is that we live in a society with so much messaging that is designed to take our power away.
We’re told we’re not enough unless we buy something we don’t need to fill some supposed needs that we don’t have in the first place.
We’re made to compete and compare ourselves to others as we try to climb the corporate ladder or outdo our peers in material possessions.
We are often left feeling disappointed, frustrated, defeated and second best.
But the message here is that we are powerful.
There is something deep within each and every one of us that we can connect with. That is the source of the so-called “rules for life”.
You’re not going to find this outside yourself. It’s buried within.
To live your life with authenticity and honesty and to fully commit to being the best version of yourself. Not the version of yourself that others want you to be.
Rather, each and every one of us need to live our own life with personal power.
