Personal Development Blogs, To Help You Succeed

This is not a post for material success – but is something that we all need to polish and improve as it forms and important and integral part in also being successfull materially. Being successfull spiritually and personally in all the aspects of life is very important, and without it, there is little meaning to life and one’s journey.

Who doesnt need a little bit of help and guidance in this world? Every one of us are keen to improve our lives – personal, financial, spiritual and other aspects. This post is about blogs that are out there that can help you improve your personal life. I recommend you visit some of these sites. There are also plenty of books on this subject, but there’s nothing as good as a quick 5 to 10 minute advice from someone, in exchange for no money. 🙂

I recommend you visit a new site on the list below every week. Go to one of the sites and spend about 15 minutes a day. See what the writer has to say and absorb some of his thoughts during the course of your day – specially the things that appeal and make sense to you. Try and change your actions according to what you think is correct. Stick with the writers who make sense to you and appeal to you the most. I have not seen all these websites, but they have been aggregated by Alex Shalman in his “Gotta Get Goals” blog post. I trust he has done a very good job in putting this list together.

In addition to what these people say for personal development, one must also improve “spiritually” and one must follow a religion of one’s choice or destiny.

And remember – the challenge is not in getting the end result (or the fruits of your action) – the challenge is in the action itself! Do your best! Sieze the moment! Let the result or reward not affect you … don’t get attached to the reward (happy or disuaded by the results) … just keep deligiently working on your actions!

Now, here is my favorite poem by Rudyard Kipling. Print this out and post it somewhere near you, and read a couple of lines from it once in a while. It is indeed very encouraging!

– If –

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream – and not make dreams your master,
If you can think – and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on!”

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings – nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much,
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And – which is more – you’ll be a Man, my son!

–Rudyard Kipling

If you liked this poem, you should also visit my friend Mohit Misra’s website, and read some of his poems. They are very simply written and non-complicated, with a lot of deep thought and meanings. If you like the poems published on his site, you can encourage Mohit to write more poems by picking up a book from Amazon 🙂
