In my own opinion, I think everyday in our life is a personal development day, everyday we are developing our very selfs, in every things that we encounter, we grow stronger and more matured.
That's true there are a lot of books, and ebooks available from different sources, and most specifically online, where we could learn something about improving our personalities, and also some seminars or webinars are also available.Others maybe trying to live everyday with personal development, but others are not exercising this, because they still allow their erroneous way of thinking to reign over in this lives. A strong application of personal development must be done, and I guess a necessary education regarding this as well as books can help a lot in order to have a good idea on how to start making developments in the personality.
To be what we are capable of being and so become a complete and happy person we need to work on our attitudes and habits. They need to be aligned with our true purpose and lead us towards our hopes and dreams. Personal Development is a process that can assist us to make the changes we need to make to find personal success in all areas of our life.Some of you may wonder what is meant by "personal development". Personal development is also referred to as "self improvement", "personal growth", or "self help" however I like this term the best. Personal Development is simply about improving yourself in whatever areas you'd like, which typically means improving or changing skills, attitudes, or beliefs that will help lead to the desired effect. That desired effect could vary, maybe it's just to be more happy, or maybe to make more money, to save or create a relationship, or even get over a fear such as public speaking. If you're one to feel you are already perfect in all ways then this is not for you, however most of us will admit we have room to better ourselves. Some arrive at an interest in personal development only after they get so frustrated with their current situation that they truly open their mind to change.
So why would we listen to someone else for advice? A favorite author/speaker of mine named Brian Tracy said it well: "No one lives long enough to learn everything they need to learn starting from scratch. To be successful, we absolutely, positively have to find people who have already paid the price to learn the things that we need to learn to achieve our goals".
The last thing I'll say about personal development is that it crosses the entire world, all cultures and all religions. We all have the ability and the desire (most of us) to improve, and that can be as simple as learning to communicate more effectively, or more complicated such as learning the techniques of writing well or speaking effectively in front of others.
I welcome your thoughts on this subject, do you strive to better yourself? Have you always been that way or did something trigger it during the course of your life?
No matter how many books we read and buy, the key to personal development is on the people who are reading the book, whether they make a move to change and apply the learnings they acquire from books. It is up to us to apply the methods on the books and change our life to develop.I believe that all personal development books have all the essential learning for people who want to see change in their lives. Since such books are not just a matter of 5 pages, but they are lots, I do hope that everyone will have the heart to read all of them so that the effective motives of such books will be done in the lives of the readers.
Agree you need to be clear with your thoughts, your goal should be clear.. if you know what exactly you want to achieve and how you can achieve it then you can easily achieve it..For me in simple terms, it means "1. Be aware of what you do and why you do it. 2. If people have this self-aware and open mindset, they are ready to learn to constantly extend their comfort zone".
What do you think?
And I guess we should not forget our "resources": time, money and energy level...Agree you need to be clear with your thoughts, your goal should be clear.. if you know what exactly you want to achieve and how you can achieve it then you can easily achieve it..
