What is a personal development plan anyway? Is it a long typewritten essay? Is it a drawing like engineering blueprints showing your house, cars and places you want to go? Is it a bunch of pictures on your vision board? Is is a mind movie? Is it a list of goals?
No, I do not believe it is any of those things. Those types things are of great help. But they are stepping stones to what I am describing. I like to think of your goals list in whatever way you develop it as a list of things to acquire or experiences to have. Your goals are very important, but without a plan, you will have a very difficult time reaching any of your goals.
A plan is much more than just a list of your goals or pictures of what you want.
Your personal development plan is what you are going to look like, be like, act like and experience when you have accomplished what is on your plan. It will include what you want to do for your own happiness.
Your goals will be a list of whatever it takes for you to get to your future self.
You will use all the good things that are needed to get yourself where you want to be. You will need to increase your self esteem and your self confidence. You will work to elevate your best qualities and minimize or work on your weaker qualities.
A personal development plan needs to be written down. It may be one of the most important things you ever write down. This personal development plan will include the big things in life you want to accomplish. Think of it as if the things on your plan happened tomorrow, how great would your life be.
My personal development plan is that I desire to:
1) Make my entire living from my Internet businesses.
2) Weigh my ideal bodyweight
3) Be muscular, fit and lean.
4) Have the perfect penis.
5) Have many relationships with beautiful girls.
6) Have great relationships with my family and friends.
7) Be free from stress and worry.
I look at this list often and rewrite it very often also. I have rewritten it so much that I have it totally memorized. I think about how when I am at this point in my life, my life will be so great. I am so thankful that I am part way there on parts of this plan, especially the great relationships with my family. I am thankful that I am progressing towards the rest.
These items are my personal development plan. I am working towards these things on a daily basis. They are my plan. They are more than goals. This is how I want to be, what I want to do and how I want to live.
The plan is the lifestyle I want in the future and today. I do not wait to work the plan and live this way, I do it now. This personal development plan gives me clarity. This plan gives me direction. This plan gives me inspiration. This plan gives me motivation. With this plan I know what to do. This plan provides me the guidelines of my own personal development training program. Instead of mindlessly turning on the TV as soon as I get home I leave the TV off. I only watch TV if I am with friends and family and it is something we can do together or if I am so beat and worn down that I need to recharge. I can honestly say that I have only watched one hour of TV in the last 6 months by myself. I concentrate on my self development and avoid thinking about sports, celebrities, religions and politics. I concentrate on my life.
When I do not feel like going to the gym, I think of my plan and how I want to be a muscular, fit and lean and I think that a muscular, fit and lean man will get to the gym for his scheduled workout even if he doesn't feel like it.
When I feel like eating a ton of junk food, I think of my plan and how if I want to weigh my ideal bodyweight I will not binge eat on junk food.
When I would rather just relax and do nothing for my Internet business, I think how will I get to the point where I make my living online by my internet business without spending the time and effort to make it so.
When I feel shy around women or get sloppy in my appearance I think that a man who dates multiple women every year will have to boldly approach women, spend some money on learning how to approach and be always looking and feeling his best.
When I do not feel like doing my penis enlargement work, I think of how far I have come and that this work has really turned my whole life around.
When I get impatient with my children or do not call my parents I think that a man who wants to continue to have a good relationship with his family will be loving, respectful and kind to both his children and his parents. That in order to have that good relationship, he will call his parents often and make plans to see them. He will be patient, kind and loving to his children all the time. He will never snap at his children or yell at them or be rude in any way.
When I want to butt into other people's business, especially my family and friends, I think that I really have no right to tell people how to be, how to behave, how to act and how to think. I step back and realize that the only person I can change is myself. I can change my life, but not others. I can offer opinions if asked. I can give advice if it is offered with love and friendship. I can help. I just cannot force it.
By having a personal development plan, your life will be brought laser like into focus. You will not always be wondering what to do or jumping around from thing to thing or doing nothing to develop yourself or work on your personal growth.
You will know what you have to do and can just go ahead and do those things. Time management will not be such an issue for you because you know what to do and more importantly, what not to do.
Your personal development plan can be more detailed than mine or less. That is up to you. Your plan can change over time and it probably will.
But you need to start with some type of plan. You need to respect yourself and honor yourself enough to spend the time figuring out what it is that would make your life exactly what you want it to be. You may want to examine your past and see if your personal growth is a direct result of your past problems. You can even determine what to work on to make improvements in your life by examining what is wrong and taking steps to correct these things.
For me, I was happiest when I weighed about 230 pounds. It was the right weight for me to be trim and muscular. I was large, but not flabby. I was big enough to be powerful and be left alone because I looked scary to most people. So that is where I want to be. It is not so lean that I have to be super careful with what I eat all the time either.
I was never happy with the size of my penis, until now. This is all because I discovered penis enlargement. If you are not happy in this area, there are things you can do to improve yourself. This is a website for men and this part of your life is of extreme importance to men.
I am extremely proud and happy with my relationship with my children and my parents. I was very worried that my children would turn against me because I left their mother. It was one of my biggest fears. But leaving her had to be done. At that point in my life I was willing to risk losing the love of my children to get away from my wife.
Thankfully, they love us both. Both my children live with me now full-time. They see their mother a little bit every week.
My parent's have been a huge blessing in my life. Without them, I would have been in bad shape both financially and emotionally. Their love and support has make my life quite good, when it could easily be very bad. They have been very supportive throughout the entire divorce.
In fact, I believe that a man need's someone to talk to about going through the divorce or any type of breakup. If you do not have supportive parents or family or friends to talk to about what you are going through, you will face extreme hardship and depression.
This personal development plan that you will develop will be your path to a great life. The act of writing it down and thinking about often it is the first step. The path to anywhere begins with the first step.
Just look at my personal development lan. You will have to agree that this is a pretty damn good plan. It covers money, body, sex, relationships and long term planning. If I get to where I want to be I will be one of the happiest men on earth. I am already happy because I am on the path to where I want to be.
I got off the path of where I did not want to go. The path I was on was not right for me. I was on the path of being a miserable, fat, abused husband who wanted an early death. I left that path and have determined my own way. That is my right. That is your right.
Do not fall into the trap of letting others decide your personal development plan for you. They have no right to do so. Remember that always.
No one has a right to tell you what path to take or what personal development plan you should follow.
You can get advice obviously. You can start with another person's plan and sees if it feels right to you. That is the easiest way to start. Just right down someones plan and see how it feels to you. Work with it. Write it down many, many times. You life is worth the effort of writing and the expense of paper and pens.
Some people do not like to write that much. They seem to want to save paper and pens. Not me, I am writing all the time. I am continually writing things down and continually throwing papers out.
I write to think. I write to plan. I write because I love writing.
I mostly write because I know how effective writing is to clarify and quantify what I am trying to accomplish.
I am not sure if the pen is mightier than the sword, but the pen is mightier than nothing. If you do not write this down, you are saying to yourself that your life is not worth the time and trouble and the cost of a few dollars of paper and pens.
If you look at my personal development plan, it is created by analyzing plans from other men. Other men want to be muscular, rich, free, happy in all their relationships and happy with their sexual abilities. I am not writing War and Peace or the Magna Carta. This is just a plan of where I want to be.
