By age nine, I firmly decided to focus on fueling my life with “relentless self-improvement.” Reading Eleanor Roosevelt’s column in Lady’s Home Journal (June 1941 – 1949) and McCall’s (June 1949 – November 1962), prompted me to seal the commitment to myself to be a perpetual learner.
My relentless self-improvement mindset was apparent to my high school peers, as the senior year book committee, chose the epitaph—‘She grows old learning something new every day.” And I have.
It was Eleanor, a woman ahead of the times, who taught me how to push past limits, create profound paradigm shifts, and courageously face and unhook from any conditioning and patterns that no longer served me.
Because I grew up on a 1,000 acre cattle ranch, entrepreneurship was in my blood. It is no surprise, then, that I am an entrepreneur, who teaches and mentors others to create “relentless self-improvement.”
Entrepreneurship is THE biggest, most “in your face” tool for personal growth possible. I took business law, business strategies and accounting in undergrad. I dug deep into magazines and books for mentors and trainers, mining everything I could from them. This is not to say, the best way to create massive personal growth is only through entrepreneurship. It is to say, though, that entrepreneurship has more benefits than the obvious.
While the number of self-improvement and self-help books, tapes and videos continue to explode – Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill and How To Win Friends and Influence People, Dale Carnegie still remain remarkably popular. Training programs created to help those who desire a more in depth understanding are as popular as the books.
It is never too late to make the commitment to fuel your life with “relentless self-improvement.”
This moment is the first moment for the rest of your life—Give yourself the gift of “relentless self-improvement.” With tele-seminars, audio books, electronic books, Internet articles and magazines, etc; creating “relentless self-improvement” is easy. ###
