Focusing on personal development
Guest Speaker Bob Lauzé
Man is a mystery. If you spend your entire life trying to puzzle it out do not say that you’ve wasted your time. I occupy myself with this mystery because I want to be a man. - Fyodor Dostoevsky
Dostoevsky wrote this quote when he was only 17. He never mentioned material gain. But he did achieve great success with his first novel Poor Folk. His focus has been “to be a man” in exchange for a lifetime of labour.
For Dostoevsky personal development was not a means to become a great writer, but a means to work towards personal development. To achieve true success in life we must do what this great writer did.
People seldom consider that a person might become an entrepreneur to achieve personal development. More often it is considered that personal development is undertaken to achieve success in business.
The purpose of life is for us to become the best human being possible. Personal development is therefore the goal. We need to make personal development the core mission in our life.
True business success comes from ensuring that our personal and business lives are a part of a higher mission of becoming the best possible human being.
Business success should be a result of living for a higher purpose. In focusing personal development on a higher mission our business and personal life will work out right.
Simply live life. We have to pursue personal development to the point that it becomes a habit and we never think about it.
Stories of true success confirm that when we start as entrepreneurs as a way to attain personal development, we will in the end succeed with the realization that it is not the money we make but the enrichment we feel about having become better human beings that is the true reward.
