For me, life is about continually work on and improving myself; I get into a stale, depressed state when I’m not learning new things or working towards a goal!

It’s no surprise then, that I’m a huge fan of personal development. To gain new skills and to even just be a generally well rounded person, it’s so important to invest time in yourself.

This doesn’t mean you should waste time learning about things you don’t care about at all, however find some subjects you’re passionate about and grow from there!

The only person you are destined to become, is the person you decide to be

 – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Personal development is the belief that you are worth the effort, time and energy needed to develop yourself

You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one

 – Henry David Thoreau

Investing in yourself is the best investment you will ever make. It will not only improve your life, it will improve the lives of all those around you

There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self

Growth is the great separator between those who succeed and those who do not. When I see a person beginning to seperate themselves from the pack, it’s almost always due to personal growth

 – John C. Maxwell

 – Brian Tracy

Set a goal so big that you can’t achieve it until you grow into the person who can
