THERE’S ONLY one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that’s your own self. So you have to begin there, not outside, not on other people. That comes afterward, when you’ve worked on your own corner. –Aldous Huxley
I am sure you have seen people who are living their dreams. Everything they want seems to come to them effortlessly.
You may be tempted to label such people as being lucky. But are they?
The truth of the matter is that such people took personal responsibility for their lives and everything that is happening. They did not arrive there by chance or magic.
All great people have one secret- their commitment to personal development. We are all here to learn, grow and develop.
We are here to develop our personality, acquire knowledge, wisdom and experience that will position us to release our full potential and achieve an amazing life. In light of this, every person, situation, event or circumstance becomes a potential teacher.
Most people focus on academic and professional achievements at the expense of personal development. Personal development aims at the holistic development of one’s personality and life.
Personal development is like a plant. For it to thrive and grow into a beautiful tree, it must be in good soil, get enough water and sunshine.
It must get the right nourishment to develop into a healthy plant.
Your personal development should receive serious attention. It will position you to identify opportunities and utilize them to your advantage.
When you commit to daily self-improvement, doors of opportunities which previously remained shut will open. It gives you the confidence to take a leap into the future.
It empowers you to take risks without being assured of results. We know from personal experience that those who achieve outstanding results are also risk-takers.
It is good you learn about personal development because without it other equally important areas of your life may be neglected. Try to be a better person by improving such areas of your life as health, wealth, relationships, career success and financial prosperity among others.
Personal development will give you an upbeat outlook on life. Instead of complaining, you take positive steps to turn things around.
Negative talk gives way to positive talk. Negative beliefs are replaced with positive empowering ones.
Your personal development will help you overcome fear. You will act with confidence and boldness even in difficult situations.
Generally people change their lives out of inspiration or desperation. Don’t wait until you are overwhelmed by events or things in your life.
Make a conscious effort at self-improvement. This should be a lifelong affair.
Learn from the experts. Attend personal development seminars.
There are inspirers in every field of human endeavor. Get an expert to mentor you.
Instead of looking for what you can get at the workplace, work hard on yourself. Get trained and know your job well. This will make it difficult for your services to be dispensed with.
You should also aim at becoming a good team player. Get on well with others.
Respect your employer, your supervisor and colleagues. Have a warm relationship with others most especially those who need your services.
Your personal development should translate into a better life for you and others. Be a role model and teach others.
Information sharing improves your life and others who come into your world.
It is said that what we become influences what we get. Everything you have accomplished so far is as a result of who you have become. Jim Rohn says, “To have more, become more.”
In a nutshell, work hard on yourself to enhance your chances of success and achievement. Personal development is your shortcut to an amazing life of great relationships, wealth, health, happiness and inner peace.
It will help you manage your life better. It will help you have a balance life.
It will help you manage stress, adversity and change more successfully.
