No one is more important to you than you are! Go ahead and read that sentence again. The question is, “do you believe that?” If you don’t believe it then say it out loud, ponder it, sleep on it. Don’t let go of that thought until you believe it and are ready to take action. If you don’t believe it you will never rise to the top. You will never achieve the success you desire. You will never scan your horizon’s from the peak of your success.
Does success always seem to be just out of reach? Are you ready to finally succeed? Are you willing to discover what you can become and accomplish? Will you engage in the pursuit of personal development, personal growth, self improvement, self help, and related concepts, in order to excel and increase your potential, productivity, and performance?
That is what “Self Optimization™” is all about. It recognizes that you are your most valuable asset, and it offers success strategies so that you will become the best that you can be. When you focus on improving your skills and enhancing your experience of peace or well-being (wellness) then you will maximize your ability to succeed. “Self Optimization™” is the aspect of Human Optimization™ that deals with an individual’s commitment to personal development.
Many people don’t succeed because they don’t give themselves a chance. They don’t engage the process of making themselves better, or improving themselves. Sadly, the pursuit of personal growth, personal development, self help, self improvement, and related concepts is a rarity.
I once heard a story from a man who went to his 25th year class reunion. As he talked with his former classmates he was struck with the realization that the majority had not grown to any great degree. They were basically the same people they were in high school. They had a few more lines on their face, but they had not achieved the wisdom and knowledge that can potentially come from years of experience.
The sad reality is that most people get older without getting better. Many spend more time planning their next vacation than they spend planning their lives. They hurry through life making little, or no, investment in themselves—beyond entertainment. They have little passion for personal growth or development and it shows. It is no wonder that success is rare. You don’t want to be that person. It will only lead to regret. Jim Rohn correctly said,
We all have a personal responsibility to become the best that we can be. Growth always begins with you and me. Focus on yourself for a change (what a novel idea)—your dreams, your goals, your development, and your ability to succeed. Do this and you will not live with the pain of regret. The Self Optimization strategies on this site will help you take a step in that direction.
Don’t be driven by the demands of other people or by circumstances. Don’t let other people run (or ruin!) your life and determine your destiny. If you don’t control your life, your direction, and your ability to succeed, then someone else will and it won’t be pretty.
You are responsible for your own growth and development. Your growth is not the responsibility of your parents, spouse, boss, employer, or minister. You are responsible for you—no one else is. So don’t wait around for someone to kick you in the butt.
If you want to achieve your maximum potential then it’s up to you. The power to “become” is in your hands. Be who you were meant to be. Become what you are capable of becoming. Don’t let anyone shut you down. No one has that kind of power over you. You control your destiny! Cherish that control, capitalize on it, and never, ever, give it up. Then watch as your life take on new meaning.
Self Optimization is dedicated to helping you become the best that you can be—as are other strategies on this site. They will enable you and your organization to succeed by developing the people you count on for your success.
You can do anything you set your mind too, if you will take the time to optimize (maximize or enhance) yourself. People don’t grow by accident, they grow by design. Design yourself. Design your future. Success never just happens.
“Self Optimization”™ provides strategies to equip people for success. It is the process of building a better you. There is no compromising here. Your success depends on your commitment to yourself and to your ongoing personal growth and development.
It is equally true that successful businesses and organizations are committed to the ongoing training and growth of their people. When you help your people to grow and achieve their dreams, then they will help you to grow and achieve your dreams. As Zig Ziglar once said,
“If you help people get what they want, they will help you get what you want.” (Zig Ziglar)
