Using Cool Personal Development Slogans

I’ve been thinking about personal development and how it can really improve a person's spiritual, mental and physical being. How It can take the draining life you now have, and transform it into a lovely garden of inspiration that gives others something to live for and hope for. All the self-help gurus agree on this issue.

In the world of personal development and self-help you find statements, slogans, affirmations and mottos that are the laws attempt to live by. These slogans can be powerful catalyst for changing the way we see the ourselves and the outside world. Heres some of my personal favorites:

1. “Think Positively”
2. “You Have to Empty Your Mind of Negative Thoughts to Put Positive Thoughts In”
3. “Pick Yourself Up By the Bootstraps”
4. “Change Your Mind, Change Your Life”
5. “Set Some Goals”
6. “Life Is What You Make It”
7. “You Have to Change Your Beliefs”

As I said above, personal development hinges on slogans and affirmations - these are the staples that hold it together, without them no self-help program will succeed - the personal development plan seeks to lead us down a path to fulfillment of these very statements. These mottos and slogans are the goal, they describe the results hoped for, the heaven we want so badly to enter - they represent the promise - the promise of a better life. But that where most of us run into a dead-end. We find out that words in themselves carry little weight and that being the case - we fall far short of our goal of a more fulfilling existence.

Personal development is not just a verbal exercise, it demands honesty, alertness and most of all - willpower. Without willpower you are doomed to failure, no self-help course of action will succeed where there is little or no willpower on the part of its participants. This is the major stumbling block, and the reason for no positive change in the lives of most people who try to implement a personal development regime. They just can’t find the steadfastness needed to complete the plan and fall short of the so wished for goal.

So know that the new-agers and the self-help, personal development gurus will throw out many a slogan but you must be the one to nuture the affirmation into a solid and living reality. You are the one who will have to battle with your negative blocks and ways of doing things. All responsibility for your life always relies on you, no one can change you but you, they can help you but all real change must come from your own initiative.

I invite you to re-read all the statements above, try to install them deep into your mental machine, attempt to live by them...it will require alot of effort but the results will be rewarding. You and only you hold the key to a more enjoyable life. Make today the day you take command of your mind, body and soul.

I definitely agree with what you said that all change must start from within. Which is why I want to share another qoute from Esther Hicks: "What you think and what you feel, and what manifests, is exactly a match. There is no exception." Have a great day!

When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and
now each time a comment is added I get three emails with the same comment.

Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
Appreciate it!
