In the 1980’s guitar legend Ted Nugent had some interesting lyrics including, “Some people say we’re gonna die some day… I got news, you never got to go”.
I am not sure if the motor city madman was referring to immortality or eternal life or something in between, but I have my own way of saying it. I believe, “If you’re not growing, you’re dying.” Or, “the day you stop learning is the day you start dying.” So I’ll choose to keep growing and learning as much as possible, but why?
What is Personal Growth and why do I need it?
Are you hitting your target or do you even know what your target is?
Personal growth is a continual process of learning from your experiences and those of others to improve your life and the lives of those around you.
The best way to learn about other people experiences is to read the books of the most successful people in your field. For me, as an entrepreneur and free thinker, I study the lives of people like Dale Carnegie, Napoleon Hill, Dr. Norman Peale, Tony Robbins, Steve Jobs, and several other local people I feel are successful.
Everyone needs a good mentor in life, and I have been blessed by many great ones. Gentlemen I consider my mentors; Mr. Howard Hale, Dr. John Harms, Mr. Donald E. Overman, Mr. Douglas Chappel, Dr. Richard Kleager, Mr. Dale Householder, Pastor Rod Wetzig, Mr. Jerry Tallmon, Mr. Roy Kizzire, Coach Russ Martin, Mr. Ron Green, Coach Jerry Strauch, Coach Daryl Bentley.
Personal Growth is an ongoing process but if you start with three basic things; Make the decision to be more successful, read about successful people and be around successful people. Sounds pretty simple, but it’s a proven formula.
