Invest In Your Personal Development

Invest in Your Personal Development This New Year


Where do you want to be at the end of next year?  What are your goals for success in work and life?  Achieving your goals starts with investing in your personal development.  You can’t reach your goals if you don’t develop yourself and your abilities.


According to psychologists, personal development is the process of defining your goals and how to achieve them.


Personal development includes:


•What is Important to You

•What You Want to Achieve

•Your Strengths

•What You Need to Improve or Develop


Individual goals vary from person to person.  One person may want to achieve business success while another may hope to accomplish something completely different, like having a better relationship with their partner or finding a way to afford college for their child.


Even though people’s goals aren’t the same, the process of personal development follows the same pattern and requires the same dedication.  Using this new year to invest in your personal development can help you reach any goal you chose.


What is Important to You


Before you decide what you want to achieve, you need to understand what’s important to you personally.  Right now, do you value money, traveling, relationships, or health?  Your goals can change throughout life, but what you value today helps you define areas for personal development.


Changing your life begins with small steps.  You will find it hard to change everything about your entire life all at once.  Personal development helps you determine what area you want to focus on this year.


What You Want to Achieve


Now that you’ve determined what’s important to you, it’s time to set goals.  To be effective, goals must be specific, measurable, and obtainable.  “By the end of the year, I want to earn more money” isn’t very specific or measurable.


You might get a cost of living raise next year.  Is that the level of improvement you were hoping to achieve?  If not, set a more specific goal like a percentage or dollar amount.  Be sure to make your goal obtainable, too.  You need to decide if it’s possible to double your salary, for example, or if you need a more modest goal next year.


Your Strengths


The next step in personal improvement is to determine what your strengths are and how you can use them to achieve your goals.  By looking at what’s important to you and setting goals, you can match your strengths to your plan for achievement.  You may already possess many of the skills and abilities you need to reach your goals.  This step helps to improve your self-esteem and self-confidence by reminding you that you can carry out your plan and move forward.


What You Need to Improve or Develop


Once you’ve determined your strengths, you will also know what you need to improve.  You may have the skills to complete an intricate protect but need to develop the patience and time management skills to follow through to the end.


Even if you want to eat healthier, you may need to improve your knowledge of which foods are better for you.  Knowing what you need to improve or develop gives you guidelines for what to focus on in your personal development with year.


Taking these steps to personal improvement will help you grow.  It also helps to categorize your goals into areas for improvement based on what is important to you.


When you are considering what to focus on this new year, think about these areas for personal development.


oProfessional Goals


If you plan to focus on your professional growth this year, your personal development may include several professional goals.   Consider which of these goals will help you obtain success and decide if you need to improve or develop the skills required to achieve them.

Build Your Professional Relationships and Network

Improve Your Time Management Skills

Find New Challenges that Showcase Your Strengths

Develop a Growth Mindset

Develop Your Professional Skills Through Workshops and Classes

Learn How to Motivate Others


oLifestyle Goals


Your goals may be more focused on your personal life and happiness this year.  A change to your lifestyle may mean you need to improve or develop the skills required to achieve success throughout your life.

Mcdonalds on keto

You are eating right and watching your carbs so what about eating at mcdonalds. Going to mcdonalds on keto isn’t really a bad thing. Most of the fast food chains have some type of low carb alternatives. For instance you could order a mcdouble or any burger with no bun and no ketchup. Bread products and ketchup are high in carbs so try to avoid them.

If you happen to stop for breakfast you could always get the egg mcmuffin without the mcmuffin. The egg is one thing that a low carb diet allows. You could also get bacon on your egg and sausage. The fruit and yogurt parfait also is low in carbs, even though the strawberries and granola are higher in carbs it is still a good choice. My take on fruit is try to eat at least one or two servings of it a day, even on keto.

Other choices for low carb if you go to mcdonalds on keto are a big mac without the bun. You could also have a garden salad or a grilled chicken salad as long as you skip the tortilla strips and the lime glaze dressing on the chicken salad. Low fat Balsamic Vinaigrette is the best choice for dressing and make sure to skip the croutons. Grilled chicken sandwiches are also a great on keto as long as you skip the bun.

Keto and HIIT

If you like the fillet o fish and go to mcdonalds on keto you may be in luck.The fillet itself is low in carbs as long as you skip the bun. The tartar sauce has 0 carbs if you like it on your fillet o fish.Avoid deep fried foods like fries, crispy chicken because they have high carbs. Chicken mcnuggets are ok even though they are deep fried as long as you only eat 4 because there is 10 carbs in 4 pieces.

When it comes to desserts and mcdonalds on keto you could eat apple slices, go gert and cuties. I know fruit is higher in carbs but they do contain natural sugars which are better for you. If you limit yourself too much on things you like, you are going to fail miserably. Best practice is to eat healthy but cheat every once in a while, just don’t over do it. Even the best of us fall off the diet wagon so don’t worry. Get up dust yourself off and start on the right track again.

Eat right exercise and die anyways

Being a business owner you encounter all kinds of people. I was out promoting my Lifestyle and Weight Management Coaching and ran into an unusual guy we will call him Mike. Mike’s view on life has to be one of the most unusual I have ever seen.

I was passing out flyers at a housing development, you know the one that has most of the houses close together to make canvassing easier. I always put a flyer in peoples doors if they don’t answer right away and that is what I did at Mikes house.

He was working out back and just happened to come around front as I was leaving his porch. He said with kind of a snotty attitude, hey what the hell are you doing on my porch. I don’t like solicitors, so get the hell off my property.

I told him I was a Lifestyle and Weight Management Coach and left a flyer in his door. If there was any way I could help him call the number on the flyer.He said my view is “Eat Right Exercise and Die anyways” so I don’t waste my time with the diet and exercise shit.He started cussing and waving his arms in the air while heading my way.

He was a pretty good sized guy and I am not much of a fighter, but when backed in the corner I can kick ass if needed. Just then the screen door flew open and this heavy set woman said in a rough tone, Mike get your ass up here and quit being mean to people. She reached down and picked up my flyer that had fell out of the screen door when she opened it up.

She read the flyer, looked up at me and said my husband and I have been trying to lose weight for years with not much success. What makes you think that your coaching can help me. I started talking to her and explained our program to her and she got a big smile on her face. She said all the other programs they tried made it seem so easy but the results were disappointing.

The Lord works in mysterious ways

 I got a text from a number that I didn’t recognize that said Hey Buddy. With all the spam texts I get from marketers, I just figured it was someone trying to sell me something. Then another text came through that said hey its Jordan. At first I was thinking someone was playing tricks on me because my son Jordan hadn’t talked to me in 20 years.

When I was younger and my kids were little I had what you would call a craving for alcohol and drugs. I spent my days working and my nights drinking and doing drugs. I did not pay much attention to my kids and I think they kind of resented me.

In 1994 I moved to Florida to get away from the drama of their mom who tried everything to make my life miserable. Low and behold a couple of weeks later to my surprise they showed up at my house in Florida. Seems my ex wife’s new boyfriends parents lived in the same town I moved to. To make my life miserable she had them stay with me for a while.

Don’t get me wrong I love my kids but she had them do everything she could to make things a living hell. I woke up the first morning and my ac was turned down to 60 and I was freezing. Then they started doing little things like leaving the hot water running, opening windows to let hot air in, just anything to annoy me. When I asked them why they said their mom told them too.

It took a toll on my wife and me and eventually we split up. At the time I thought it was the end of the world but it was really a blessing. I met my current wife and was never happier in my life. Then our families met and the fireworks began.

My kids and her kid clashed and this caused problems with us.I started drinking and doing drugs again real heavy and this kind of alienated me away from my kids. Eventually they moved back with their mother to NY and I only heard from them on occasion.

My oldest boy got in trouble for drinking and driving and went to prison. The middle boy  called from time to time but eventually stopped and Jordan called a couple of times but also fizzled out. I write to the oldest boy in prison and never hear from the other 2 until Jordan texted me.

We texted and I called him and we talked for a few minutes. I will keep in contact with him and build a relationship with him because family is important. If you have a loved one you haven’t talked to in years, give them a call or even a text and start again fresh. I know I feel better knowing I can build a relationship with my son and eventually will try to patch things up with the other 2 boys.

We all do foolish things when we are young and regret it as we age. Take that first step to repair a broken relationship with someone who you have not seen in years or even if its only been a short time. Life is way to short to hold a grudge and we should take the time now to mend that broken relationship before we regret it later in life.

I wrote a short story about addiction called The Stairway to Addiction. Pick up a copy at Amazon and read about the crazy things that go on with an addict.
