Personal growth, personal development, self-improvement - these are topics that many of us explore. Maybe most of us. But can we be overdoing it sometimes? [From my earlier postCan we do self-improvement too much?]
Robert Anthony, author of Rich Mind Life Strategy program, has some provocative ideas on the subject, and writes:
So how do you begin to live your life without the need for “self improvement”? First, begin by understanding that you already have everything you need to be happy and successful.
We believe the cure is another book, program, system or seminar that will show us how we can improve ourselves so that we can finally have what we want.
Where did we get this idea that we are deficient and need to improve ourselves?
We got it from looking outside ourselves and comparing ourselves to others…. Simply put, we have forgotten how to think for ourselves.
