Myth on Self Development

Myth doesn't always have to be related to history. In fact, it could be related to anything and any thoughts. I always love to read self improvement and personal development issues and articles. I am aware that those articles about self improvement and personal development are generally based on personal thinking that are directed toward different types of personalities. But I also know that nothing is directed toward negative impact, all are intended to make a better personality. Want to know some myths on personal development. Here they are...

Myth #1: Personal development is all just about positive thinking.
Positive thinking is a component of personal development. For some, it's a big component, for others, it's not an important component at all. In fact, some paradigms of personal development teach us to think critically, radically, and negatively, depending on our circumstances. Personal development does not try to make us be a certain way. More than all of that, personal development allows us to control our way of being -- whatever way of being we choose.
Myth #2: The motivation doesn't last.
That's true. We eventually have to be self-motivated. Fact is, however, some of us are not self-motivated. So getting temporarily motivated by something or someone else is the first step towards becoming self-motivated. Sometimes, that's just the nudge we need to get ourselves into action. Personal development programs teach various methodologies on becoming self-motivated.

Myth #3: Personal development doesn't work for everybody.
Just because something doesn't work for everybody, doesn't mean that it won't work for us or that we should dismiss it for ourselves. Many things don't work for everybody. Diets don't work for everybody . . . Investing doesn't work for everybody . . . But the some/few people they do work for, they work for beautifully. We can only know whether something truly works for us, if we've sincerely given it a try.

My friend and I were recently talking about how we as human beings are so hooked onto electronics. Reading this post makes me think back to that debate we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as the price of memory drops, the possibility of downloading our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could encounter in my lifetime.
