What is personal development?
Personal development is the pursuit of developing, honing and mastering the skills that help us become the best that we can, with all that we have. It is the reaching for, and realizing of, our full potential as human beings.
We all want to live full, productive lives but, sometimes we just don't know where to begin. There is so much information 'out there' that it can be overwhelming and hard to sort out. Depending on the problem, what seems to work for one person, may not necessarily work for everyone. There are so many different programs, strategies and techniques, that it's hard to chose the right one.
One thing, however, is certain. If we want to accomplish anything in life and realize our full potential, we must have some skills - in this case life skills.
In order to excel at a job, a sport or any discipline, a person must acquire and master certain skills. Living life fully and productively is no different.
Where do you begin?
You begin by establishing a firm foundation. That foundation is "you". You must know who you are, what you want, and what you are capable of. You must then determine which values, goals and principles you will set up to guide your actions.
know and understand yourself better
live life more consciously and deliberately
attain personal satisfaction and fulfillment through purpose.
Often, the hardest part in any endeavor is getting started, however once you do, there is a surprising snowball effect. You will begin to feel good about what you're doing and you'll want to continue. You will want to keep improving yourself and you'll want to become the best that you can be.
As you continue on the journey of personal development you will become aware that there is so much more knowledge and information to be discovered and uncovered than you ever thought possible; knowledge about yourself, knowledge about others, knowledge about life and the world around you.
According to Aristotle: "All men by nature desire knowledge."
Personal development is about desiring and pursuing knowledge.
The good news is, that acquiring Life Skills will not only contribute to your personal growth and development, it will make you a more interesting and dynamic individual.
