15 Inconvenient Personal Development Truths

I know you want to be the best you can be. We all do. But sometimes we look for success in the wrong places or we try to achieve it in the wrong ways.
 - part 1!
  1. The acquisition of knowledge doesn’t mean you’re growing.  Growing happens when what you know changes how you live.
  2. You can’t have good ideas unless you’re willing to generate a lot of bad ones.
  3. A good idea without action is nothing at all.
  4. It’s not so much about finding opportunities as it is about creating them.
  5. 10% of our lives is decided by uncontrollable circumstances.  90% is decided by how we react to those circumstances.
  6. What we don’t start today won’t be finished by tomorrow.
  7. If you’re waiting for the perfect conditions, ideas or plans to get started, you’ll never achieve anything.
  8. If you keep doing what you’re doing, you’ll keep getting what you’re getting.
  9. Change is often resisted when it is needed the most.
  10. Discipline is choosing what you want most over what you want right now. Read The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
  11. The harder you work, the luckier you will become.
  12. Kindness and hard work together will always carry you farther than intelligence.
  13. Life is not easy, especially when you plan on achieving something worthwhile.
  14. Tough times don’t last, but tough people do.
  15. Lots of successful people have failed as many times as they have succeeded.
