Why Entrepreneurship is the Best Personal Development Accelerator
Updated: Mar 11, 2021
If you're currently an entrepreneur or you're deciding on whether to be one, you're seeking out something different than the majority of people.
Most of us went to school and subconsciously ended up learning how to fit the mould of a 9-5 job.
We were conditioned by a grading system where we were rewarded for doing what we were told for years and years.
Then, when we entered the workforce, we also had to do what was in our job description.
If we messed up in school, we'd get in trouble. Similarly, if we messed up in our 9-5, we might lose our job.
You NEED to make mistakes again and again, in order to learn and grow.
If you aren't failing, you likely aren't pushing yourself to grow.
But our minds were not programmed for this!!
Personal growth sounds lovely, doesn't it? But at the end of the day, it's gritty and hard.
It's not for the faint of heart. I'm even going to say, it's not for your average person.
If you wanted to skimp by in life and work, you wouldn't need to bother growing.
Growing means taking uncomfortable steps forward.
I have always been a fan of trying to learn about self-help and development because I continually want my life in the future (and present) to be better than what it has been in the past.
In order for that to happen, I need to do things I likely haven't done before or I need to change the mindset behind my actions. NEITHER ARE EASY.
Entrepreneurship has put my personal development journey on steroids because I am constantly outside of my comfort zone.
I am regularly failing and learning from those lessons.
Rinse and repeat.
I'm working through sooo much resistance on a daily basis because, in order for me to move my business forward, I have to take action even when it's hard.
This means I'm working on my mindset every single day.
Because if I do so, I know it'll have a direct positive impact on the success of my business.
So the growth is integral to my business thriving and my business doing well means I'm growing constantly, making it the best personal development accelerator I've ever experienced!
