I’ve asked the question ‘why do I blog’ of myself before, but never why do I blog on personal development?
After all I’m not Anthony Robbins.
I’m certainly not Brian Tracy.
Definitely never written Chicken Soup for the soul Series, so I’m not Jack Canfield.
I may be quite successful but not in Stephen Covey’s league.
Anyone can write about personal development I suppose, but why am I?
I guess this is a question almost every blogger must have asked themselves at some point. Why do we do it, why do we sit behind the computer in our spare time and stare at an empty screen, trying to gather our thoughts and make the effort of meticulously putting our thoughts into words through a blog post? Why do we press publish at the end to launch these thoughts into the blogosphere? What do we expect to get out of it?
Now admittedly, I am a qualified life coach as well as having a variety of other qualifications. I’ve been reading personal development books since 13. Listening to inspiring Audio programmes from around 18 years old, and attending seminars for just as many years. Over the years I have built up quite a wealth of knowledge on the subject of personal development. So it is the subject I know the most about. Well alongside healthy lifestyle living.
Having begun the journey as a personal development blogger it has catapulted me on a personal journey to becoming a speaker and practicing personal development life coaching, all of which catapulted on the back of this blog. But none of this was in my mind when I started out.
The simple truth is I love writing about personal development, it’s my passion, and it’s an area that has always fascinated me and always will! And I love to share what I’m passionate about. But I also love studying the subject, and much of my inspiration has come from great thinkers, great books, and many, many amazing personal development authors and speakers
It’s my vision to enable everyone to enhance their lives for free, no matter where they come from, where they want to go and what they want to become. This blog is dedicated to provide a healthy lifestyles living and personal development resource that will help others to develop their lives, grow as a human being and to enhance the quality of their everyday living.
Although I’ve been blogging now for two years, I’m just as excited every day as I write my newest blog post. I admit sometimes I find it challenging to come up with something completely new. Maybe it’s my age, it’s more remembering what I’ve already written. But I truly love helping others on their personal development journey providing insights, stories, tips and techniques. When I get replies thank me for providing someone inspiration well to me that just makes every second of tapping away at the keyboard so worthwhile.
There’s nothing I love more than:
Inspiring people to find their passion
Motivating people to take action
Empowering people to go from the NOW to WOW!
Showing people there’s more to life than they’ve experienced so far
But there’s a double edged sword to writing on personal development.
By sharing my passions, I’m also supporting myself on my path of constant learning and improvement. So I’m helping myself by helping others. In anything you do, the best way to learn about a subject is to teach the subject and to write about the subject. So by writing my blog I am enhancing my own personal development as well as helping others along the way.
Yet the most powerful motivation to me is undoubtedly fuelled by sharing my passion. For me, to be truly happy and fulfilled in my life, I have to create something and be of use in something that I love. This is what inspires me.
This is what leads me to use my imagination to create in my mind what I write every day for my followers to read.
How can you not want to help people who make the effort and take the time to visit your blog in order to further their personal growth. If they’re prepared to develop their own potential, and see your writing as a resource for doing this, well then you should feel privileged, and I most certainly do.
Developing potential and helping hundreds maybe thousands of men and women achieve success is what the personal development is all about, and I can’t think of anything I’d rather be doing. It’s a privilege!
