The Importance of Personal Development for Entrepreneurs
Many people shy away from the idea of personal development. Strangely enough, the idea of becoming a better person and being happier is seen as some silly activity. But, in reality, we all want this and we resist it because we shy away from personal responsibility; also, the idea of actually facing all our internal junk kind of scares us and we would rather not. No matter what type of person you are, you will clearly benefit from working on yourself. If you are an entrepreneur in particular, you really need to devote time to bettering yourself because if you want to be successful in your endeavor, you will likely need to make some changes to your belief system as well as how you think and act. If you look at the most successful entrepreneurs of our time, it is clear that personal development was a huge part of their life. Coincidence? I think not.
