As much as there is indeed an air of duping people into parting with their hard-earned money for some motivation that tends to lose its impact after a short while, there is a lot more value to be attained out of the personal development sphere for those who take the time to really seek it. Sure, there are some motivational speaking figures who we’d gladly pay to go and hear speak, like a certain Mr. Lesley Brown, simply because these guys can really resonate and light a fire under your behind!
If you look a little deeper into the industry though, you’ll find some tangible value which you can really put to good use in your life, with the aim of catering to what is perhaps the most important part of all our lives – our finances. It’s probably the case with pretty much every other aspect of our relationships as individuals with big corporations, financial institutions and even governments, that being that we’d be better served actually doing what they do instead of doing what they say we should do.
For instance, while it’s probably legally, practically and logistically not possible, if you wanted to amass great personal wealth, you’d be better off doing what your bank does instead of what it says you should do. They want you to save your money with them, while they use that money to generate more money for themselves – more than they “reward” you with for entrusting them with it. You’d probably go to prison if you tried to copy the banks though and of course we’re talking about it from a simplistic and perhaps a literal point of view.
Getting back to the little known personal development industry that really seems to be the preserve of only a few people in the entire world, what it entails is copying the big corporations in purchasing research data that is tailored to you as an individual. It’s a very simple concept – in the same way that big corporations have entire data analysis divisions or outsource those services to an external, specialised research company, individuals can benefit their personal development route, with an emphasis on the finances, through the acquisition of research data tailored to their unique life trajectory.
So how exactly does this work?
While the service doesn’t come cheap, what happens is you formally submit your personal data to the research company entrusted to conduct some personalised research for you, along with furnishing details about what you plan to achieve in your life. Naturally this is centred on the finances, but what the research company then does is dynamically recommend the best course of action for you, providing you with valuable information during key decision-making moments in your life.
For example, if you happen to be based in a specific place like Seattle or Everest and you may not quite have the funds to cover the legal fees associated with something like a personal injury claim, a Bellevue Personal Injury attorney will be recommended to you by the personalised research company to best fit your exact needs in the moment. The recommended attorney would in this instance perhaps be one which offers free consultations so that your case can be evaluated without having you go broke.
