Just two simple words Personal Development, but when connected together conjure such potentially enormous effects to our journey through life. When you first think of these two words “Personal Development” what are your thoughts?
I hope that you see them for what they truly mean. It is understanding where you are, knowing where you would like to be and teaching you the actions necessary to bridge the gap between the two.
I have been dedicated to my own Personal Development for over 30 years and have read countless books, listened to numerous audios and attended many seminars. My blog is dedicated to your journey on personal development helping you to change your life, overcome obstacles and realize your dreams. My hope is something you read, or listen to will guide you on your way to getting exactly what you want out of life.
Developing our minds and thoughts, being aware of how we think and what we think at any given time is an important aspect in personal development. Knowing how we think and feel, knowing our strengths and weaknesses, our positive traits and negative ones too, are crucial elements to know, to help each of us in our journey.
For me my personal development journey allowed me to break away from mediocrity and bring my life alive with passion.
“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” Howard Thurman
Your passion is what makes you want to get up each morning excited about the day ahead. It took me many years to identify and acknowledge my passions. Once I did, my life just seemed to lift off!
What is it that makes you really happy while you are doing it, when you think of it, at any time?
This is a powerful question. There are of course others. What is it that I should do with my life? What is my purpose in life, my passion? Part of my journey has taken me to helping others discover how to discover their passions. Educating our minds with knowledge that is important to ourselves is a crucial facet of our journey. Finding your passions is life changing. Making the most of them can be truly rocket fuel to everything you want in life.
Until you discover your true passion, you are living a life of mediocrity. Once you find them you can achieve great things. Look deep inside of yourself, realise what your passions are and embrace them. You’ll discover yourself to be a greater person than you ever dreamed yourself to be. The world you live in will never be the same and the opportunities life throws at you will be amazing.
When you take the time to find your passion, you’re making a commitment to yourself. A truly important one. You’re saying that you’re a top priority. You showing that you’re taking yourself and your life seriously, but also that you want to enjoy it. When you have a true passion for life you never feel like life is a chore.
This is what personal development is really all about. We humans, are unique and one offs. Hey believe me there’s no one else like me, and you better realize there’s no one else like you. Be proud of that. You are indeed a one off, a masterpiece. It’s just your responsibility to finish the job off.
The key is to learn everything there is to about yourself, and understand what makes you tick, what makes you do what you do. Never again put yourself down, sell yourself short or allow yourself to settle for mediocrity.
Be the best you that you can be, doing the best at whatever it is you chose to do. You cannot ask anything more of yourself than that.
Anyone that wants their life to be happier, healthier, more fulfilled and more fun be kind to yourself and make personal development two words that are part of your life, and your world. You deserve it.
Imagine a world full of people following their passions. Enjoying life to the full. Seeing smiles every where you go. Listening to people telling you how great their life is. Personal Development two little words but are part of the journey that can help more people experience that world.
