The Journey from going to Good to Great

Personal growth is a lifelong pursuit to understand a person’s true higher self and their true purpose in life. When we stop growing, we die. We need to continuously develop intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually. We grow and change physically as we develop from infancy to adulthood and old age. We grow and change emotionally with every experience, and we grow intellectually as we respond to events and to the world around us. Anything that you want to remain in your life – your money, your health, your relationship, your happiness, love – must be cultivated, developed, and expanded. Otherwise, it will degenerate. Some people satisfy the need to grow by working out physically or by reading books. Others need to study and learn constantly in order to feel that they are truly growing

Growth is about personal investment in a person's self and improving his or her skill set in order to manage life effectively and provide value to the community. Personal development allows a person to be proactive. Setting goals that are time sensitive causes a person to achieve their dreams in life. Luck happens when hard work meets opportunity. An individual is not born lucky but rather possesses the habit of personal development, continuously learning new skills to achieve the desired result in life. Truthfully, a person may not always achieve their vision in life, but he or she will experience a richer and more rewarding life when dedicated to regularly pursuing new goals and learning new skills. Making that commitment to personal development is the first step on the path to personal fulfillment.

Personal development is not achieved overnight and requires continuous effort and appreciation. With renewed self-confidence and the desire to seek more knowledge, you can hone your skills and become a successful individual, whether in your personal sphere or your professional life. With the right life skills, you can improve the understanding of who you are, achieve satisfaction, and live your life with awareness. May all beings be happy and free and may all our words thoughts and action contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all.

Here are a few Personal Growth Tips

  1. Find your why. Your why is the purpose, cause, or belief that inspires you to do what you do. It is the thing that motivates you to get up every morning and work a little harder to get a little better.  It is the thing that motivates you to get up every morning and work a little harder to get a little better
  2. Find inspiration in others. Build relationships with role models or other successful people. Remember that you are the average of the five people you surround yourself with, so build relationships with leaders in your community and model your behavior after these thought leaders. Recognize in yourself the strengths you see in other people
  3. Develop the habit of practice. The reality is that excellence and greatness cannot be achieved without hours and hours of practice and hard work. There are no exceptions to this rule. None. Personal growth and learning new skills is like physical strength, is something that develops slowly, almost unconsciously over time, given the right stimulus.
