Dr. Keith Johnson Discusses Personal Development and Resources for Confidence. Building Personal development should be going on in your life every day. Your income will rarely exceed your commitment to personal growth and development. If you are going to be a leader you must be a reader! Prepare yourself for your future! A statement John Maxwell said changed my life and it should change yours too! “Your life five years from now will look the same except for the people you meet, the books you read, and the CD’s you listen too.” You have to get a passion for reading, learning, and growing. Opportunity is waiting for you in the future, are you ready? Success is not something you pursue! Success is attracted by the person you become. Your personal growth and development will get you to the level you need to be, what are you waiting for?
