Is Personal Development one of those things you only hear about from “successful” people?
Not exactly…it’s for anyone who wants to change but with one caveat.
Personally, that makes sense but I think it’s a little too vague. Unfortunately, that definition doesn’t cut it one bit. People want to know “what is personal development and will it work for me”. That caveat, “will it work for me” is what we’re really going to get into here.
Alright, so what is Personal Development?
Well, personal development means that a person sees an opportunity to grow and chooses to develop themselves. Which pace they grow is entirely up to them. Some take personal development like a buffet style – you go back when you want more. Then there are some that take personal development as a daily ritual – they choose each day to learn something new that they can apply in their life.
Both approaches definitely work. However, the one that is going to get anyone a lot more results (you know, the “will it work for me”) are those who choose to see personal development as a ritual. It’s far more effective the more you do it and apply it in your life to the point that you are going to see some results. Still no guarantee but far better than doing absolutely nothing.
Personal development is like acquiring a new habit. It’s going to take about 21 days before it becomes a part of your ritual. So whichever approach you take just keep this in mind.
Is this “personal development” thing making a lot more sense to you now? I hope so because it’s not a difficult concept. It’s a concept those who want a successful life adopt – including you.
Can you see yourself jumping into personal development or are you already applying it in your life?
Let us know.
