In a world where you can sometimes feel like you don't have much control, taking ownership of your personal development can make you feel pretty empowered as its time spent investing in you for the benefit of you. Yes it is true that a more savvy you brings value to those around you too but personal development is all about your abilities, your dreams, your realisations and your identity.
By building a better you, you demonstrate that you believe that you do have a place in this world, you have your own mind and voice, a direction, an instinct that you can be more. You gain more skills and an understanding of why you do what you do, how you can be better and how to cope when life throws you a difficult lesson.
If you have no clue why you behave the way that you do, how do you expect to understand others or worse how do you expect others to understand you? There is no downside to becoming self aware but I wont lie to you, it does take a certain kind of strength to take a long hard look at yourself, witness and admit to your shortcomings, take responsibility of the areas to be improved and then the big action of actually doing the work.
The impressive part of your personal development journey is that you chose it. You can work at your own pace, you don't sit a final exam, you don't need to announce your results to the world and it always leads you to new communities of like minded people. You will find books, courses, groups and teachers that make you feel like they were created just for you and who knows you just might find your purpose in life once you understand who you truly are at the core.
My blog will always be a place where you can find articles and stories that support your personal growth and maybe help you to see situations from different angles or perceptions. I will recommend the books that helped me, teachers whom I love and respect and also little hacks that I used to encouraged me to keep doing the work but remember this is your journey and I am only your guide. Each time you learn something new it will create a new avenue to explore and your destination will be of your own choosing.
October 2021 will be the release date for an online course that I have created which will support you in how to see the lessons that life experiences provide you and how you can use them to make yourself stronger instead of breaking you apart.
I have also just set up a group on my Facebook page solely for personal development so feel free to join the group, ask questions, meet other people who are starting their own personal development journey and also stay in touch with me. I will post my blogs to the group so that you have another port to review them. FB link is below.
Be the best that you can be and be proud of who you are.
