1. More Respect for you

Have you noticed this? You enter into a place, and people who you don’t even know you starts waving and greeting you. I have. The reason why people will do such a thing is this: they heard from someone, or heard from someone that heard that heard from someone, that you are valuable. Now, this seems like nothing, but mind you, you just earned respect without having to say a word, isn’t it nice?

2. Opportunities

In a situation, whereby I’m not in need of an individual with a particular skill set. Probably, I just need a person of great virtue, and no particular skill. I will choose a person who i have good stuffs about, isn’t it? Note this: the reason why I will be using “what people said” is this: no matter what you’re doing in life, people are watching. And, they would be the ones to speak in your absence. But, that aside. Also note, that most self developed individuals have a particular skill set.

3. More Valuable

Kindly show me a self-developed individual, and I will show a person who is valuable. Human beings are crafted in a way whereby we unknowingly compare ourselves with our kinds. So, in a situation where I try to qualify how much a person is worth among a group. I will qualify a person who is self-developed much more higher than a person who is not. Earn more value for yourself, and see the difference.

4. Success-oriented

Generically, a self-developed individual is automatically programed to succeed. Wierd, right? This is simply because, a man who is self-developed is halfway the journey of success. Reason being that: the challenges and experiences you get while trying to increase your value, is similar the ones you get while trying to succeed. So, deal with it? Lastly,

5. Support

Before thinking otherwise, kindly note this: the reason why we were created with individuals like use around us , is because we need there support. As funny as it may sound, everyone needs support. Even if you don’t like asking for one; you definitely have asked for one unknowingly. But note, you get support easier when you have value to offer. Most people instantly help you just because they heard some nice things about you. So, please try to engage willingly in self-development.


As I will always say,

Words are cheap, but actions are priceless.

Make a move today, and enjoy your tomorrow. Let these benefits of self-development propel you to indulge in activities that will make you worthwhile. Did you like it? Share. Leave a comment below.
