Spoke 15: Become the best version of yourself by prioritizing personal growth.
When was the last time you made space in your schedule just for you?
When life is tugging at you from all directions, it’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day demands flashing by you at light-speed and lose track of the things that drive you to be better.
Personal growth is integral to total well-being because it nudges you closer to the best possible version of yourself.
When you learn a new talent, explore an unfamiliar topic, or experience a new culture, you reinforce the feeling of being a capable, interesting person who has achieved something meaningful and personal.
By cultivating your self-worth like this, you’re setting yourself up for both personal and professional success. What’s not to love?
With time, personal growth becomes a welcome habit. In Reinvent the Wheel I share how being a “professional martyr” hurt me in the long run. I hope to introduce you to practices and concepts that will encourage you to nurture yourself and lead an authentic life.
