On the road to personal improvement you will face ongoing obstacles. Some of them will even come from within your own circle. Be prepared to deal with it- don’t take it personal. Expect it and learn to deal with it. It is very difficult to take the steps necessary to improve your career, relationships, health, spirituality and charitable giving. It takes a ton of time and dedication. Just because now is the right time for you, doesn’t mean it’s the right time for someone else. Be prepared to deal with people who don’t feel the same way you do. Be prepared to deal with people who might feel insecure or defensive about the improvements you are committed to making. Be prepared to hear the criticisms. Be prepared to move forward. Be prepared to go alone.
Although… you will never quite be alone. On your road to personal empowerment you will meet like minded people who have similar interests as you do. Not only will you meet new people, you will recognize people that have been there the whole time, you will just see them differently. You might realize that the people you feel you needed to meet have been there the whole time. Be prepared to rediscover your own strengths and also the strengths in others. Be prepared to develop new relationships. Be prepared to be the sole leader of your life.
