You are on a quest towards better self-development, so you want to take a workshop or two. Seeking knowledge and new techniques feels like nirvana for you. You may also want to attend that conference you always wanted to go but never had the chance because it was never in your neighbourhood, but is now. You are pumped, ready and willing to better yourself! Everything is finally falling into place; you think yeah this seminar is going to change my life. You pick your medium, if online you get ready to click, send and receive — BUT — that dreadful total amount (you know the numbers after the $ money sign) pops up and it’s . . . GAME OVER. Cost too much! Um, what happened to your enthusiasm and this is going to change my life!?!
► Money factors in $$$
Sometimes you can’t see the purpose in spending X number of dollars for self-motivation, which is really what personal development workshops are about. They may contribute aspects of knowledge and techniques (the business related ones do more) but it’s really the same old pep-talk life coaches give. This by no means indicates that it diminish it’s worth and value, it just means balancing out the information you want with the money you are ready to spend for it. The bottom line is, you want to go to these workshops because they make you feel good, like…..┌( ಠ_ಠ)┘fucking-fantastic!
Hi my name is Stephanie and I am a Self-Help junkie!
This year I have an urgency to heal myself. It’s been activated and I have been immersing myself in books, videos and practices to help better myself on all levels. It’s just a matter of time before my call to join a few workshops would come into play. I wanted to discuss the topic of: When is it justifiable to spend (large amounts of money) on personal development workshops?
