Your mindset matters. Treat yourself with care.
I'm sure you've seen people post about Personal Development - especially because it's one of the Four Vital Behaviors in our Beachbody business. Well - I'm going to echo all the sentiments about it here and give you some recommendations on ways to get in your daily PD. Not only will this help you as you are growing as a coach, but this will help YOU. Yes, just YOU in general. As a woman or a mom or a friend or a girlfriend or a spouse - with ANY role in your life. I will go as far to say that the personal development I do each day as a Beachbody coach helps propel me immensely in my full time job in finance...in addition to coaching!
You don't have to find and hour a day to pick up a book (or you can!) but don't let the time commitment intimidate you. Now there are so many awesome options - podcasts, ebooks, audio books, videos -- heck I even get a text message prompt every morning with a short video message to watch that takes about 2 minutes and gets my day started off right on my drive to work! So do NOT be intimidated. And do NOT slack on getting in your PD. Why? We all have our days where we are feeling down. Not worthy or like we should just give us. These personal development books and videos and podcasts will help push you through those times. Push you through when you think you're not going to meet that goal you made.

Why is personal development important?
Gives clarity to personal vision
Personal development enables you to have a personal vision of the future, which gives you a clear idea as to what or where you will be in a few months or years.
Sharpens existing skills
Learning and growing are the hallmarks of personal development. It enables you to sharpen your skills by focusing on areas of weakness by:
Seizing learning opportunities, whether they will give you qualifications or not.
Reflecting on your past and learning directly from your experience.
Reading informally and mentoring.
Gives your talents room to shine
Personal development enables you to identify some hidden talent in you. A talent is something you excel in, and it will become clear that you are good at something when you:
Do it with ease
feel comfortable doing it
do it without needing supervision
Personal development is there to help empower you, help you take control.
A key ingredient to happiness
Personal development results in more happiness for you. Personal development helps point out the direction you want to be headed. it's simple law of nature that when you're happy, you make other people happy.
Helps build confidence
Your confidence level plays such a big role. you might not see it now, but overall confidence is key.
