10 Self Development Tips that Scaled me up as an Entrepreneur

Self Development
written by Samuel Kwame Boadu
Self Development: Are you sometimes confused about where your life is heading towards ? Do you feel left out or inferior when you see your peers advancing in their endeavour? Do you sometimes wish you could do something to change the tide? I’ve got some tips ✍️ for you in that regard that scaled me up as the Founder of SamBoad Business Group Limited, Best Service Providing Firm in Ghana
.
1. 𝐈𝐍𝐕𝐄𝐒𝐓 𝐈𝐍 𝐊𝐍𝐎𝐖𝐋𝐄𝐃𝐆𝐄: Read about what you want to improve. Do you want to get better at a certain skill? Read about it. Be more meditative? Read books that explain that in detail. Want to be more productive? Spontaneous? Outgoing? Confident? All these topic areas are covered by books upon books that you can study–and by reading about it, it’ll always stay top of mind.
.
2. 𝐅𝐈𝐍𝐃 𝐀 𝐌𝐄𝐍𝐓𝐎𝐑: A mentor can be anyone from a peer who knows something you don’t, and you want to learn, all the way up to someone vastly more experienced who is willing to take you under their wing. Mentorship is by far the fastest path of learning.
.
3. 𝐑𝐄𝐅𝐋𝐄𝐂𝐓 𝐀𝐍𝐃 𝐌𝐄𝐃𝐈𝐓𝐀𝐓𝐄: If you really want to take self-development seriously (and not just, you know, talk about it), you need to be constantly aware of how you can improve. And the only way to know how to improve is if you reflect and ask yourself where and how you still need some work.
.
4. 𝐁𝐄 𝐀 𝐃𝐎𝐄𝐑 – 𝐓𝐀𝐊𝐄 𝐀𝐂𝐓𝐈𝐎𝐍: It’s your habits that unfold the results, not the other way around. You can’t live one life and expect to one day have another. You have to put in place the daily habits that will allow the things you want to change to change.
.
5. 𝐁𝐔𝐈𝐋𝐃 𝐏𝐎𝐒𝐈𝐓𝐈𝐕𝐄 𝐑𝐄𝐋𝐀𝐓𝐈𝐎𝐍𝐒𝐇𝐈𝐏𝐒: Self-development is not just a solo game. In fact, the best self-development is done with others in some capacity. Spend time with people who are working on similar things as you, and you’ll find yourself growing with them at a faster rate than if you had tried to do it all alone.
.
6. 𝐂𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐞 𝐀 𝐑𝐞𝐰𝐚𝐫𝐝/𝐏𝐮𝐧𝐢𝐬𝐡𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐒𝐲𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐦: This is necessary for people who need to break bad habits. Sometimes, it’s a reward (or a punishment) that makes the difference between immediate and rapid change, and ongoing fleeting promises. You can trust or commit your daily goal to a friend to keep a check on you. I mean, allow them assess you daily. I Know this is not actually easy but it helps.
.
7. 𝐁𝐄 𝐓𝐑𝐔𝐄 𝐓𝐎 𝐘𝐎𝐔𝐑𝐒𝐄𝐋𝐅: No amount of talking about it will ever instigate true change. This is the hardest part for people. It’s far easier to buy a book on self-development, carry it around, and say, “I’m working on being more present,” while staying constantly on your phone to text your friends about how you’re trying to be more present. You have to really be honest about it with yourself. You are your own judge.
.
8. 𝐇𝐀𝐕𝐄 𝐑𝐎𝐋𝐄 𝐌𝐎𝐃𝐄𝐋𝐒: Again, self-development is not easy, so it’s helpful to be able to look to others for inspiration, motivation, or even just daily reminders of how you can continue moving forward on your journey.
.
9. 𝐌𝐄𝐀𝐒𝐔𝐑𝐄 𝐀𝐍𝐃 𝐀𝐒𝐒𝐄𝐒𝐒 𝐘𝐎𝐔𝐑𝐒𝐄𝐋𝐅: Regardless of how ethereal the thing that you want to work on is, you have to find some way to measure your progress. It’s the only way you’ll really know if you are moving in the right direction–and when/where to pivot as you go along.
.
10. 𝐂𝐎𝐍𝐒𝐈𝐒𝐓𝐄𝐍𝐂𝐘 𝐈𝐒 𝐓𝐇𝐄 𝐊𝐄𝐘: Self-development doesn’t happen overnight. It happens slowly and deliberately. Consistency is what creates truly meaningful change–and this is what makes the process so difficult for people. It’s not that you pop and pill and you’re done. You don’t do it once and you’re “fixed.” Self-development is a daily practice and lifestyle. Remember, the secret of your future is hidden in your daily routine.
