Personal growth is the process of improving one’s emotional, mental, physical, social and spiritual self.
Putting your focus and efforts on one or two of these areas at any one time will improve the other areas of your life as well.
For example, when you begin to work on your emotional and mental growth, you will improve your career and social life at the same time. If you start your personal growth process with your physical part, meaning your health, it will positively affect your mental and emotional self.
It is up to you which area you want to put your focus on first because it involves the same disciplines or series of actions.
Since personal growth is a process, the journey to reach your end goal may take a while. But you can speed up the process. There are certain things you can do to make rapid changes.
First, you got to make it intentional.
Many people began to strive for personal growth only after a catastrophic event or difficult experience that resulted in an emotional shock. This could be something like losing a job, their home or a relationship breakdown.
Some others decided to work on themselves to adapt to new and challenging situations or roles. Failing to do so will cause undue stress and anxiety.
When everything is going on smoothly, most people feel complacent, even though they complain about the lack of progress in certain areas of their lives. This is because there isn’t enough emotional pain to cause them to change.
So, where are you now?
Wherever your position is in life is right now, you got to take the initiative to achieve personal growth and be your best self.
Of course you can choose not to.
But if you want to realize your talents and abilities, if you want to break your limiting beliefs, and if you want to acquire what it is that you really want in life, you got to be willing to take proactive action. You got to want to turn failure into personal growth. You must want to fight mediocrity.
By taking consistent steps to achieve personal growth, you are going from good to great. You will become a better version of you. Your life will become more meaningful.
Let’s begin your journey to personal growth today. What better time to do it than now.
