What Do People Ultimately Look For
« on: 2014 01 13 - 14:52 »
I am in the personal development field and love to help others improve. 

What do you guys think people ultimately want when they head for personal development?

Just trying to collect more data and emphasize about what is important.

Any thoughts would be appreciated!

Hi Narmeen,

I am also in the personal Development field and I work on the assumption that anything that can enhance or help make people's lives easier should be under this heading.

In this day and age many people just seem to be so negative, which of course is not helping them to live a fulfilling life. so I write a lot about how we think, the language we use and the actions we take are a reflection of our reality. I often use cause and effect as one of the main subjects in my material, as I believe that this is one of the most important factors of how we live. But like I said as long as whatever content you are creating has a positive effect on others then in my mind it deserves to be under the heading of personal development.

I hope this helps

Regards
Robert

I would also say: people are looking for what you can help them with.

Sometimes we donīt know what we are looking for - just a better life or as most people focus on "I donīt want that in my life anymore" - we focus on the negative instead of the solution...

So, I think people are looking for leaders who can direct them and tell them what to do and think - take the responsibility away...

Hopefully we can be the leaders who direct them to take control of their lives in the best, most inspiring way :) !

I reckon most people want three things in life.


1.  A satisfying and rewarding career that pays well.


2.  A wonderful, loving relationship.


3.  Great health,


Sure there are others, such as friends, hobbies etc, but it's usually one of the above that encourages people to explore personal development as a way of getting what they want in life.

I believe most people want to be excited about something in their life that turns them on even before they get out of bed. They want something to look forward to each day weather it's their job, contact with a family member or friend, taking a vacation, permanent retirement, buying a new home or car or even making some changes in their lifestyle or changing careers. The last on here is what finally got excited about life. I hated my job.

I would have to agree with "mydailyinspirationalquote" .... I don't think most people know what they're looking for, in fact I don't think most people even know that they should "look" as they are so busy just surviving life as they know it.  However, those who step beyond and decide to better themselves .... I think they look for leaders who can guide and show them how they can create better - health/wealth/or whatever their need is at the current time.

These are all great answers!

In my years helping people, it really seems like Personal Development is helping people to simplify. That is to say that we are born for greatness, but develop destructive habits that get in the way of our success. So in essence, the goal of a Coach is to identify and help people to remove the obstacles in people's way.

I think that people ultimately are looking for ways to better their life. This maybe around finances,  health , relationship and many other aspect of their life.

The ultimate goal as a coach is to lead them, to show them how their can effectively achieve their desire goal. People are looking for leader, Someone that can hold their hand and walk the path with them or at least show them the step by step process to get the result they so badly want to achieve in their life.


What are you looking for when you thing about personal development?

The answer you will find inside may amaze you, but also may change the life of million people. Focus on that answer and you will serve better.

Personal Development = developing oneself personally OR looking to "better oneself" as a person

I know that's not an "official" definition of the term but I do think it describes what most people are searching for when they take a look at personal development.

Many begin to realize - though they may not fully understand it - that there is a need for something MORE than just going through your day and "getting by".  There are way too may influences out there that can have an impact on us to just "go through the day and get by" in my opinion.

It's kind of like what I believe to be true about driving... You can follow all of the traffic rules and do everything correct. However, if you are not looking out for "the other guy" then you will likely be involved in an accident just about every day.

So it is with personal development. We have to "watch out" for all of the negative influences that surround us each and every day and do all that we can to "develop" a positive mindset that will help us do more than just "get by" or "survive".

That's my philosophy that you will also find at my website and through the blog and podcasts that you will find there. It's the thought behind my "signature close" at the end of my posts as well.

"Make it an AWESOME day! (Who else is going to do it for you?)"

I think most people are looking for:


HAPPINESS


If you are happy in life, everything else follows automatically :)

I think people want answers to the questions they don't dare to ask.

Getting the most for doing the least. That is why so many fail to achieve greatness. They want all the finer things in life without sacrificing and grinding it out to get it. You have to work daily at personal development to achieve your greatness, in other words you must put in the work to reap its rewards.  ;)

My personal experience people are looking for a way to  make effective change in  order for their lives to become easier in order to focus their energy on good things and enjoyment and positive productivity as opposed  to stresses and worries about finances, health, other people, societal negative.


However most people firstly don't know  how  to change and secondly the effort  required  to make  the change puts a a lot of people off starting.
