The other day I received an email in my inbox in which the person stated I am their favorite personal development blogger. I was incredibly appreciative, of course, and told this reader how grateful I am. The funny thing is I don’t label myself as a personal development blogger or guru. As a matter of fact, I try to distance myself from those types of bloggers.
It is interesting how we see ourselves and how the world sees us. The only thing I try to do is help others who might be struggling in the same ways I struggle. The personal development pages I follow leave out one important thing: being personal. They want to give life tips, but rarely do they ever reveal anything personal about themselves.
I see myself as a guy trying to be a better person who makes a lot of mistakes, but who truly cares. If that makes me a personal development blogger in other’s eyes then I guess I am. The truth is I would rather people simply label me as Danny.
