No matter where you are in life, celebrate it. It's either a product of your growth or a place that will help you grow.

When I started to embrace who I was and where I was in life rather than always wishing I was someone or someplace else, I began to take on a more attractive and creative energy, which I then used to propel myself toward my goals.

One of the biggest mistakes we make is assuming everyone thinks like us or sees the world in the same way we do. This may sound obvious but this disconnect is often at the root of much of conflict and intolerance in the world.

The more you travel to different countries or read about different cultures and time periods, the more you realize that your way of thinking is just one of many. There are many assumptions about good and bad that are not universally held. That's the reason we have wars– because one person's idea of good is someone else's idea of bad.

For most of us, the belief systems we use to navigate our world are based on our culture, gender, economic group, assumptions, and time period into which we were born. But here's the kicker: most of these things are completely out of our control. We do not choose them, at least not initially.

This is great news! It means that we are not stuck with any particular set of beliefs or assumptions about the world. It means we can change them if we wish, and by doing so, change how we interact with others and the world. It also means we can work to understand other people's belief systems to cultivate more harmonious relationships.

Don't go looking for the person of your dreams. Instead, focus on becoming the person of your dreams and you'll be more likely to find the right person.

Don't chase riches. Instead, work on creating value for others and mastering your craft, thereby increasing your value.

You must match the energy of your desires before you can manifest them in your life. Work on being the best version of yourself possible and the rest will fall into place.

I've noticed that when I focus my energy on improving myself, I attract people, circumstances and experiences that match my improved state of being. It's a beautiful thing.

Without a doubt, the most common question I get asked is: “What books would you recommend for someone just starting out on their personal development journey?” (Or some version of this).

I've given this a lot of thought and I finally complied a list of 16 books to answer this question. I just published the list on my blog (link in my bio).

You don't have to be a newbie to benefit from the books on this list. I've chosen books that can be read at multiple levels, they also just happen to be a great entry point for beginners.

Personal development is about improving and evolving across all areas of your life, not just one. That’s why I’ve included books from a variety of genres, including achievement psychology, people skills, spirituality, entrepreneurship, creativity, philosophy, relationships, and personal finance.

Read through the list and see what jumps out at you. All books are linked to Amazon for easy ordering. Link is in my bio.

Happy reading!

Some thoughts on motivation to help you start the new year off right…

Psychology tells us that we are motivated by two things: The desire to gain pleasure and the need to avoid pain. The latter is the often the more powerful of the two.

If you feel unmotivated to do something that you say you want to do, one reason could be that you haven’t given enough thought to the consequences of your inaction. In other words, you haven’t linked enough pain to NOT doing it.

If you want help taking action on your goals, check out the psychological exercise I describe in my blog post. Link in bio 👆🏽

Obstacles are essential for your personal growth…

Looking for meaning? Facing your challenges will give you a sense of purpose.

Lacking direction? Look to your obstacles to determine your next move. Identify a perceived disadvantage then work on overcoming it.

Not feeling creative? Facing your challenges head-on forces you to find innovative solutions that you otherwise might not have thought of.

Years ago, I was having trouble remembering certain self-development principles. This drove me to translate the concepts I was learning into clear and simple language to understand them better. This led to the creation of @thinkgrowprosper. Indeed, the obstacle is the way.

The right self-talk is the key to making many other personal development strategies work.

Your subconscious mind is listening to everything you repeatedly say and think. It tends to believe anything you tell it often enough and with enough emotion.

For better it for worse, many of our current patterns are a result of certain messages that have been drilled into us throughout our lives.

You can take control of this “programming” by replacing unwanted programs with new, conscious, positive programs.
