What is self-development? Why it’s important. Why having a Marketplace is critical.
Self-help, we argue, is similar but less accurate because it implies something about the person is broken or needs fixed. Self-development is simply about wanting a different outcome or result where one finds their own way.
The first step in agreeing what self-development is, is first deciding on what it’s not. It is not having to go at everything or even everything by one’s self. Some people assert that self-development means using only the resources available within the person being developed. We believe
no one should be limited to just those things.
In our view, self-development occurs when an individual self-selects a path, process, or information meant to achieve the desired outcome, outside the realm of therapy. So what this means is that the person seeking change has identified the change they desire and the tools they wish to use to make the needed changes.
