Personal Development is a Journey

 

Personal development is a journey (not a destination), it is all about improving your life every day.

 Moreover improving our lives should be our first priority

Personal development is all about improving your skills, financial growth, spiritual enlightenment, and physical growth.

Besides the importance of personal growth cannot be stressed enough.

In fact, each day we should be doing something to better our lives.

For instance, we should take stock of our lives; see what has improved and where we need to work a little harder’

In fact here are some personal development tips to help you on your journey.

 “Every moment of one’s existence, one is growing into more or retreating into less.” ―Norman Maile

Do not delay

BEGIN TODAY, RIGHT NOW. Do not wait another minute to start working on you, start with something as simple as reading a book or exercising for 5 minutes(yes 5 minutes).

Small goals are the way to get going. Now take me for instance if I take on too much at the beginning of a routine; I would get frustrated and stop.

Take baby steps, I promise you; when you have accomplished those, you will be eager to move on to the next goal.

But you must begin right now, remember procrastination will take away from your greatness

The sooner you start, the better you will feel about yourself

Be Intentional

Be very deliberate about what you want to achieve and when you want to achieve it

Not Deliberate

I would like a new car or I need to begin exercising’

Deliberate

I am going to buy a new Mercedes Benz, January 2020. I am going to begin exercising next week Thursday, June 9, 2019, at 6:15 am for 10 minutes.

That is how you hold yourself accountable when you are working towards a date and time(you are more likely to get it done)

Life is growth. If we stop growing, technically and spiritually, we are as good as dead.” ―Morihei Ueshiba 

Mentor

A mentor is an experienced trusted advisor. Your mentor should be someone who has walked the walk(they have done what you want to do). They will guide you as you go along your journey.

Your mentor will hold you accountable, so whatever you need to do to move to the next level he/she will ensure that you do so

Make sure to choose someone who will not let you off the hook, when you come with your excuses.

Achieve your goals

Challenge Yourself

Come out of your comfort zone, if you are not uncomfortable with some of what you need to do for your personal growth(you are not doing something right)

I am going to come out of my comfort zone to do a facebook live in another 2 days; I am terrified

But I am going to do it, it might just turn out awful but I am sure I will learn something from it

Furthermore, you should not be afraid of making mistakes; it is apart of life.

What is it that you do not like to do?

Public Speaking?

Driving a car?

Write a book?

Publish your book?

And getting out of a bad relationship?

Always make plans, write down what you want to do and rehearse it Fear The Dream Killer

If your book is a big flap(so what) and the jokes you gave at your first public speaking event (no one laughed)

Guess what, you won’t die, you tried something you were uncomfortable with, in my book that is a win!!

Get out of your comfort zone today, do one thing you never thought you would try.

“Personal development is a major time-saver. The better you become, the less time it takes you to achieve your goals.” ―Brian Tracy

Gratitude

You always have something to give thanks for.

no matter how bad you think your situation is (it could be worse)

Personal Growth
Self-improvement

Work Hard

Without hard work, you cannot be successful.

If you are not willing to do the work no matter how much plans you make, it will be for nothing

They say it takes 10,000 hours to master something; so the more you do it the better you will become.

Make up your mind to have sleepless nights  and give up some of your fun time

Persistent

NEVER GIVE UP

Giving up is not an option

Besides, there will be days when everything goes wrong and you feel like you just cannot be bothered

But do not give uphold on

When you feel like giving up, picture the end result, when you have achieved your goals(how sweet it will be)

Simple daily  principles are the game changer

Do not give up on you

Fight for your dreams

If you can survive you can succeed

Discipline

In addition, remember that your personal growth comes before anything else

Do not let your feelings determine what you do

It must be done, so do it even if you do not feel like it

Parties, social media, and your favorite movie comes after your personal growth goals

Fun Time

However, you need time to exhale, have fun and do the things that make you happy

Enjoy yourself

If you are getting frustrated take a break from work and go have fun

You will come back with a clear mind

Invest

Equally important is investing in “you”

Furthermore, do not be afraid to spend money to improve your life

Besides we find it easier to buy a cup of coffee every day or buy a pair of shoes than invest in a course

However, spend wisely, do your research and make sure the course or coach(yes you need one), will be worth it

Invest your time and money in your growth, you will not regret it.

Personal development is a journey, you will never know everything so  keep on improving your life skills

Also, do not focus on what you can’t change(make a change where you can)

Equally, be persistent(never give up)

Strategies On How To Stay Motivated

Personal development is a journey(not a destination)

 For example, there is always something new to be learned.

Self-development and personal growth is very important

Be a super achiever

As a result, do not get comfortable where you are; there is always something new to be learned

Finally, read a self-help book everyday https://littlecoffeefox.com/best-self-help-books/

And be thankful

Also make sure to journal, when you write down things you are more likely to do it 

Remember to put God first in all your endeavors

    I love all your personal development tips. We are on that journey every day. It is important to get out of your comfort zone so that you can learn to be comfortable with the uncomfortable.
