Four tips about personal development…

…the first two will surprise you…
In the world of Personal Development and Self Help, there so many theories about success, achievement and positive outcomes that it is difficult to know which ones to choose that will actually make a difference…

Here is my first tip...

If you find yourself looking on Amazon or grazing through the Self-Help section of your local Book Shop – STOP IT

Here’s my second tip…

If anyone tells you that you have limiting beliefs, need to chant incantations to yourself and positively affirm that “I am a money magnet…” – SLAP THEM (in a very gentle and caring way of course…)

Some time back I had a Coach – who shall remain nameless to protect the incoherent – who insisted that I talk to myself in the mirror each morning and stating the following;

1. I am a Money Magnet…
2. I am in the process of attracting wealth and prosperity…
3. I am confident wealthy and wise.

Blah blah blah blah….

This routine lasted for some time – in fact, I think it was exactly 13 seconds…

Not only did I feel a bit of a cock – I can use that word because James May says it on the BBC so it must be OK – but something struck me immediately…

If I had to chant at myself in the mirror, it simply meant that I was telling myself that in reality, I wasn’t already a “Money Magnet” – paper money is not ferrous anyway.

A magnet will only attract 1p and 2p coins anyway – and I really don’t need any more loose change…

You don’t have to tell yourself that “I am circulating blood around my body…” or that “I am in the process of growing my hair every day in every way…” – do you…?

Why not…?

Because it’s ridiculous – you are doing it naturally anyway – it is only things that you are not doing that you would need to chant to yourself – once you have been injected with the belief that you are NOT something – then you are given the miracle cure; an affirmation to convince you that you ARE.

You probably were anyway until the Master God Catalyst of Positivity Infusion and Wizardry told you that you weren’t…

Here’s my third tip...

You have all you need right now to achieve what you desire. If you hang out with the Loony Wizards of Secret Attraction and Master Hogwarts Practitioners, they will undermine you and suggest that you need to change your thinking and infuse yourself with “positivity…”, then I guarantee that you will become dependent on the rituals and patterns that they prescribe for you.

What you choose to depend on controls you…

You are born positive; ask any 6 years old what they want to be and they will tell you something amazing – beliefs and positivity are knocked out of people by other people as they grow up and develop.

Take the advice your former 6-year-old self would have given you, not the advice of someone who has “found themselves” or had “amazing personal breakthroughs” after years of being totally useless, broke, unkind, angry, drug or alcohol soaked – their therapy is not yours…

And my final tip…

If you do speak with anyone about your own personal, professional or business development, choose wisely…

If you really think that a Success Guru or Master Achiever that lives in a bedsit in Bloxwich or spent 25 years working for the council, got laid off, read Napoleon Hill and became a Mega Coach to the “Globally Successful” can help you – then you need the help of a different kind altogether…

There are some great Coaches and Mentors out there; people who have had a journey that has empowered them to add value and enrich the lives of those that engage with them. I am privileged to count many of them as friends and colleagues. Find them and work with them – they probably don’t live in a bedsit in Bloxwich...
