Problem: When our personal growth program doesn’t work for us February 18, 2018

One of the problems we may face at some point in our self-actualization efforts is finding ourselves struggling with a system or program that just doesn’t seem to work for us, but we feel we’ve invested so much time in it that we’re reluctant to give up on it.

The first thing we need to realize is that, if we have genuinely worked at the system, the fault is not likely ours.

Remember, the reason there are so many different approaches to personal development and self-improvement is because no one system is suitable for everybody.

Each of us has a unique world view and value system and we should not expect these programs to enable cookie-cutter solutions to the problems and challenges in our lives.

Putting more and more effort into a self-help program that simply isn’t suitable for our personality is a bad investment of our time, energy, and ultimately our life.

And, we’ve all probably learned more than we realize — even from a growth program that doesn’t work well for us.

We should then consider cutting our time-investment losses, regard our past efforts as a good learning experience, and move on to new experiences in our self-awareness discovery journey.
