It’s insight that I couldn’t pass up and a list that I always want to have available for reference.

Why Personal Development Time is NOT a Selfish Act.

Why Personal Development Time is NOT a Selfish Act.

…I get it.

Personal development time can feel selfish.

There are a lot of people who could use your help – both in the world and in your immediate circle of influence.

“Do the things you used to talk about doing but never did. Know when to let go and when to hold on tight. Stop rushing. Don’t be intimidated to say it like it is. Stop apologizing all the time. Learn to say no, so your yes has some oomph. Spend time with the friends who lift you up, and cut loose the ones who bring you down. Stop giving your power away. Be more concerned with being interested than being interesting. Be old enough to appreciate your freedom, and young enough to enjoy it. Finally know who you are.” ~ Kristin Armstrong

“Be true to yourself.
Make each day your masterpiece.
Help others.
Drink deeply from good books.
Make friendship a fine art.
Build a shelter against a rainy day.
Pray for guidance and give thanks for your blessings every day.”
~ John Wooden
