#45 Personal Development
What a beautiful day on the Canadian prairies. Sun and almost 10 degrees 🙂 Couldn’t be a better start to November. It is so much fun and to see this vibrant city about to erupt in a great boom.
I really have been thinking hard the last couple of days. I am working on reinventing myself since it is that time of the year to start focusing on what new things I want to do this coming year. I think 2012 will be an incredible year for most of you and you will really see some incredible changes if you take charge of your life.
So today I wanted to talk to you about a passion I have more than anything on this planet. I know it is a big passion since I had my life change in the last 5-6 years. I chose to strive for greatness and make myself very uncomfortable and learn something new about myself every month.
What I have found out is that you learn so much about yourself when you hit a brick wall. It feels like it is made out of solid concrete until you change your mindset about it and suddenly that hard concrete wall turns into thin plywood and you break through and get success.
Why is Personal development a game changer?
When you start working on yourself to become better you find things that needs to change. Bad habits, thoughts and words. You start finding those bad words and habits and can go to the core to fight that so called belief system or paradigm as it is also called. When you get deep enough it really start hurting and you feel so much pain that you want to give up and just start being comfortable.
That is the time when you stick to it and don’t give up!
You will break through the wall!

So why not take action today?
So how about taking action right now and say to yourself that I want to become my ultimate potential. I want to change my life and have fun, spread happiness to others, smile and live in abundance 😀
One thing you got to understand is that everyone have the potential to live up to their true potential which is far greater than you think it is right now. As you grow you will see that your potential is increasing proportionally with you thinking you have reach another ceiling.
Why I am passionate about Personal Development:
For me doing what I was doing today with my life and meeting new people, writing this blog, being married to a wonderful woman, living a life of happiness and fun, loving everyone and see my true potential. That for 5-6 years ago “would not have been possible” in my own eyes. I was deeply depressed, I thought I was ugly, I thought people hated me because I was heckled for over 13 years at school. So as you see here I was in no position mentally to take on any type of personal development.
After a long struggle with my self and life I were at the worst possible stage of it when I even contemplated the end of it. I saw no future, no life and no possibilities in life. I had given up on the greatest thing on this planet my own true potential. I had no belief!
So one day I had the person I were together with attempting for the 10th time to take its life. I was closed in to a death spiral emotionally attached and addicted to pain. I remember this day. Me and my dad had just started a Network Marketing business a couple of weeks before this day. My dad I love him for this, but this must have been hard for him. He said “You have one of two choices. 1. Continue to sink down or 2. Pull yourself out of the mental rubble you have on top of yourself and get rid of that girl!!”.
I remember I cried for days, but I gave up one of my old addictive habits of pain without knowing it and started on a new course in life. I remember that day very weakly. Which is my mind telling me it should not be a part of my life anymore.
Two weeks after all of this happened I chose to drive 900km to spend a weekend at what was called a Mastermind Seminar. It was in the middle of nowhere and I stayed on a farm with a fantastic guy and his family. Thanks to Øivind 🙂
That seminar changed my life forever and I have never looked back since. It was so big of a change that it was almost like someone putting on the light switch of my life. I don’t remember the guys name, but what I remember is what he helped me to and that was making my concrete wall into a plywood wall and helping me break through it!
Be grateful for the possibility to use your true potential!
So whats next. 1. Start by being grateful for where you are today. 2. Find the best things about you and the worst. 3. Find a mentor in the field you need help and also when it comes to your strengths. 4. Start working on how you can change your thoughts, attitudes and actions and become alive and never stop learning.
