6 Questions about or Objections to Discussing Personal Development – Part 3



3. Why would someone need to read this stuff?

Haven’t they got any mates?

Of course a lot of our personal development comes through interaction with people. We learn through the experiences of life and get advice from close and trusted friends. But it can always be useful to get a fresh perspective on life. It may be that something you read encourages you not to give up hope or to be bold enough to speak the truth in a situation.

You may find that you often discuss issues like these with your friends. But all too often we neglect these. Many of us get caught up in daily activities and small talk and find it difficult to get an opportunity to discuss some of the deeper issues of life. On this site I will look at meaning and purpose and even discuss spirituality from time to time.

The principles in positive psychology and in much of life coaching outlines may be useful in evaluating where you are in our family life, our career, our finances, where you want to go in these areas and how to get there.

In talking these things through with our mates we may find a frustration in that we never really get to the point. In life coaching for instance there are strategies such as how to set specific goals and review them. The principles of positive psychology and coaching may get you to articulate your goals in ways you hadn’t done before. They may get you to be more aware of your strengths. They may help you to see where areas that you could develop.

4. What secrets do you have then?

How much do I have to pay?

On the internet there is plenty that is given away for free. In my experience there are no deep secrets that you have to pay lots of money for. Often such ploys are mere confidence tricks.

But some people prefer to read the sort of detail they find in a book or want to get material in video or audio format. I’ll be pointing you to a number of books on that I think you’ll find interesting and useful that you may want to buy. If you click through my site I will get a little commission at no extra cost to you. You can even buy some directly from my Amazon marketplace store.

At the moment I am studying for Diploma in Life Coaching. This will qualify me to set up a practice where I can offer life coaching. Life coaching is where someone will help you set your goals and discuss the way forward in the areas that you want to develop. It isn’t the same as therapy or counselling which is usually for people with problems. Life coaching is simply to help anyone to get what they want out of life. This is a paid service that I will offer in the future for those interested.

In this blog you can read about these principles yourself for free and put them into practice in your own life. But you may buy the resources through Amazon. You may even decide to hire me or someone else as a life coach.
