Carnival of Personal Development September 30th edition:
Posted Sep 12 2008 4:22am
Welcome to The Healthy Living Lounge and a big thank you to Lyman for allowing me to host this edition of the Personal Development Carnival. It’s my first time and I must admit I was rather nervous.
There were well over 40 submissions and I read each and everyone one of them enjoying the diversity of ways we all approach life and look for truth. The articles appear in no particular order. Enjoy.
There were a couple of articles which were quite thought provoking for me personally and the longest blog article definitely has to go to Jonathon FieldsJonathon Fieldssubmitted an article called Karma Capitalism: A radical approach to accelerated business and career growth
Tupelo Kenyon always explores issues with an inspirational and thought provoking process. TupeloKenyon wrote an article called Methods As Temporary Tools Instead of Lifetime Crutches
Tupeloalso adds“We are obsessed with our methods. We become attached to our particular way of doing things. The trouble comes when we cling to an old method that we have outgrown. We feel bogged down and then stuck when our personal development potential is being limited by an outdated method. If your method feels more like a crutch than a tool, it’s time to take an objective look at it. Is the method in question bringing you peace and joy? Is it helping your personal growth, or is it just a familiar and comfortable habit of thought? (Enjoy soothing instrumental music as you read plus songs with lyrics related to each article – all free.)
