If I could only own 3 personal development books in my life, without a doubt The Way Of The Superior Man: A Spiritual Guide to Mastering the Challenges of Woman, Work, and Sexual Desire by David Deida would be one of them.
I was re-reading it the other day and chapter 12; ‘Be Willing to Change Everything in Your Life’ struck home especially since I’m restarting Life Coaches Blog. David says;
For instance, you may take on a business project, work at it for several years, and then suddenly find yourself totally disinterested. You know that if you stayed with it for another few years you would reap much greater financial reward than if you left the project now. But the project no longer calls you. You no longer feel interested in the project. You have developed skills over the last few years working on the project, but it hasn’t yet come to fruition. You may wonder, now that you have the skills, should you stick with it and bring the project to fruition, even though the work feels empty to you?
The thing about blogging is that, especially if you stick with it through the years and it involves personal parts of your life like personal development, you change and the blog has to change with you.
I’m no longer working as a coach and I’m the only ex-life coach writing in a life coaches blog. I feel like Life Coaches Blog isn’t 100% congruent with where I am now.
Yet, I don’t want to stop writing and sharing about personal growth. One solution is to start a new blog all over again, building up articles, traffic and everything else I’ve gained in the last 2 years. Even though if I stick with Life Coaches Blog it might reap greater rewards in time to come.
In short, being willing to change everything in my life.
