To personally develop or not to personally develop, that is the question?
Personal Growth and Development is our willingness as individuals to develop and grow. There are many aspects to personal growth. For the purpose of this blog my focus will be on our willingness to engage in the process of personal growth and development alongside our willingness to be open to change.
Firstly I will focus on our willingness to be open to change. This is a central aspect of personal growth and development. Personal growth is our willingness to gain a better personal understanding of ourselves. Which includes a deeper understanding of ourselves emotionally, spiritually and psychologically. It is also a key aspect of our ongoing personal development as human beings.
A central aspect of personal growth is our willingness to step into that place of exploring who we are. Can we readily explore what makes us tick, as well as how and what we could improve. Can we readily acknowledge and take full responsibility for all aspects of ourselves. These aspects include how we feel, how we behave, what we say, and how we say it, therefore taking responsibility for all these aspects of ourselves. Thus enabling us to make positive change.
Further, are we demonstrating a willingness to change those behaviours and/or thought processes, this is key. This willingness promotes personal development and enables us to consider, adapt, change, or improve. It enables us to improve those aspects of our personality that may be blocking or impeding our progress in life. Therefore in addressing the difficult aspects of ourselves, it supports better relationships. It also supports better work experience and can further support our overall sense of wellbeing within our lives.
