The Real Truth About Personal Development

When one invests in personal growth, he or she takes responsibility for their life, their circumstances and their happiness. They actually become the effecter, the agent and the doer. If you really do not care about investing in personal development, you will only be setting yourself to become one of those people with a “victim mentality”. If you are not equipped and not proactive, you will definitely react to instead of affecting the situation around you.

Where Can You Start From?
You will need to start from yourself. You will need to invest in your personal growth and simply work on being your very best. When you hone your personal development skills, every other thing will come together in a fashion that seems effortless – your job, your relationships, your overall sense of well being and your home life. This does not in anyway mean that you will not face challenges, facing challenges will always be a part of life. It will just mean that you are better equipped to handle these challenges when they come.

How Can One Go about it?
Simply come up with a personal development action plan that you can follow. The guide can be flexible and can be used as a guide for the goals you wish to accomplish. You can write in chart o journal format so that you can easily observe your progress. For instance:

Health
• Will include a new work out into daily routine – if you do not already have a routine, this is an ideal time to start.
• Will reduce fatty food intake and will try consuming a new kind of veggie or fruit every month
• Will sleep half an hour earlier than usual
• Will drink at least 8 glasses of water a day
• Will reduce junk food consumption

Intellectual Personal Development
• Will read a new motivational book every week, monthly or biweekly
• Will attend a symphony concert, art gallery or theatre once every month
• Will listen to a new artiste and or musical genre

Spiritual and Emotional
• Will use affirmations and visualizations to get into the positive thinking habit
• Will spend some quality time with family and friends
• Will learn the art of meditation, deep breathing or relaxation technique
• Will take some time to connect, rejuvenate and contemplate

You can come up any type of plan or schedule that will suit your needs and style. The most important part is to make sure that you take part in personal development.

In order to hone your personal development skills, be more than willing to stretch yourself, keep an open mind and learn new things.
