Why Self-Development Is So Important For Cambodia To Grow?

I still believe even these days that self-development of each Cambodian will bring a big impact to the nation.


We used to be the victim of big ideas. Many times and many years. We should stop now. It’s time to wake up. It’s time to define our own destiny.

For better or worst, we need to stop letting other countries to decide what’s good for us! We should know what we need and we need to plan necessary steps to reach our goals.

It will take us many years to reach. But we need to start now!

We can do this for our children. We need to start from each individual. If each individual could make himself or herself grow, I am sure the country will grow.

Don’t tell me you want to save your country! Save yourself first! Make sure you know yourself and know what you want to be.

I don’t think Cambodia needs those high buildings, nice cars, smartphones or any best politic system to change the county.

I believe Cambodia needs an efficient self-development system to put in place.

We need to provide education to each individual. We need to pay more attention to our children. Educate them and help them to find their passion. Ask them what they want to become and provide them necessary supports.

Today, if you go out and ask any person down the street “what you want the most in your life?”

I am not sure if everyone could answer it.

Maybe the most commune answer you would get is “I want money”.

I accept that we need money to fulfill our need in life. We need to have it enough. But I won’t agree if you think money is all you need.

There are other things. I believe what we need the most in life is happiness. The happiness of our own and the happiness of the people we love.

And the truth is money doesn’t equate to happiness. There are a lot of beautiful things around us but we always look for something else.

Take some of your time looking at things around you!

Once a good self-development is taking place, each individual will know their passion and when they do things they love, I am sure they will do great. The outcome would be double or triple of what we can get from them today.

What it’s missing right now is the achievement of each individual. We not yet have the chance to do our best because of we lake of self-development.

And since we don’t know what our passion is, it will be difficult to choose which school or university we should attend.

Many of young Cambodians finish by going to multiple schools, decided by others.

That’s not the right education. We don’t need that much and we could not learn that much either.

That’s why I repeat it again here that self-development is important for Cambodia to grow.

Have you ever asked yourself what you want to be?
