For the past 20 years, alongside my career in international real estate, I have been on a continual journey of self-discovery, reading everything I could by the iconic thinkers of our time, from Eckhart Tolle to Joe Dispenza, Martha Beck, Anita Moorjani, and Jill Bolte Taylor. Of course, Gabor Maté has been on my reading list since I first picked up “When the Body Says No” in 2004.
My YouTube video stream included Lewis Howes, Tom Bilyeu, and many more, from the frank and straightforward Brené Brown to the more esoteric Adyashanti.
You get the picture.
Development is my life, and I devour information from everywhere I can. I have been a voracious consumer of self-development and personal growth for two decades.
But it isn’t enough just to consume all of this knowledge.
Only now have I realised that I have done a lot of “Shelf development” over all these years. I have accumulated many insights but have missed something I could never grasp.
It is vital to embody these teachings, not just know them thoroughly.
This can be done through a regular practice of mindfulness and meditation.
What do you think? Let me know in the comments below. Are you ready to move from the shelf (or knowing) to the self (embodying), or are you already there, and what got you there?
