How to ensure you’re feeding yourself
Are you feeding yourself properly? And I’m not talking about making sure you eat your veggies and drink sufficient amounts of water —although that’s important too. I believe you need to think about feeding your mind too. Make sure you get a regular dosis of inspiration. This is of vital importance, besides making sure you get proper nutrition. Here are some suggestions to get more inspiration.
Actively build new skills
When was the last time you learned something new? Go out and take a course to work on your skill set. Or search online for an interesting training or webinar. There are many options available helping you develop yourself. Whether it’s a course in speed reading, search engine optimisation or copywriting. You don’t need to work only on work related skills. Perhaps you decide to learn to cook a healthy meal in less then 20 minutes. Good for you!
Get a mentor or buddy
Although you have to do it yourself, you don’t need to do it alone. A coach or mentor can help you improve your development immensely. Since they can form as a sparringpartner and hold you accountable on the (learning)goals you set yourself. You could also seek out a training buddy, so you can both learn and develop yourselves. Doing things together is also much more fun. And I believe fun is an important element in personal development.
Read, then read some more
Books really feed your mind. There a so many books out there, which can provide you with inspirational fuel. Instead of watching TV or Netflix, spend an evening reading. This is so much more invigorating. But keep in mind that although knowledge is power, it all comes down to the actual doing. So be sure you implement the new tools and techniques you read about, if you want to make a change in your world.
This is what I have envisioned when writing my book “How to Become a Marketing Superhero” — that it will inspire you to take charge in your life and make the necessary changes. Remember: if you keep doing what you’ve always done, you’ll keep getting what you’ve always got. Nothing changes until you do.
