A month ago I was stuck in a plateau; my ideas for Life Coaches Blog posts were running dry and I couldn’t see a way out.
The answer to why and what to do came in a serendipitous way.
It ran for a while, and nothing out of the ordinary happened.
But one day (when my mind was ready for the lesson, I suspect) rule number 2 popped up in my WordPress dashboard, and struck me like a hammer right between the eyes:
Never stop learning.
I realized with a gasp, I had stopped learning! In the past few weeks I’d relied on things I already knew to provide fodder for my posts, but I’d neglected to continue reading, learning and putting into use new personal development tools to improve my own life.
But 9rules wasn’t done with me yet.
Another golden nugget of self-help was about to hit me; rule number 8:
Must constantly improve.
I realized that was the only real cure against getting stuck in any kind of plateau; the drive to constantly improve and grow no matter how much it seems you’re getting nowhere.
Struck by these rules, like a Greek peasant struck by the Olympian Gods, I went out, bought a couple of books with new stuff to learn, went a few new places and was rewarded with a few new thoughts
And with the thought of the last rule:
Respect your inspiration.
in mind, I hereby pay my respects to the almighty 9rules, may the gods of SEO, Google-juice and the Kool-Aid bless them forever and ever!
