Becoming the Real You: Aiming For Personal Development

Jun 9, 2008
A life today is so very filled with the needs of the world that we often forget about what WE need. As parents, we are there to take note of our kids actions. As homeowners, we know exactly when the grass needs to be mowed. But, as people, we rarely take the time to look at the patterns we are creating within ourselves. The personal development of others seems to be easier to notice than our own personal development. As we age, we stop thinking about our own development and ten to allow our growth to whittle away.

Maintain a positive attitude. Greet each day with a smile and end each day with gratitude. Yes, life can be very challenging. A positive attitude cannot make the bad stuff go away, but it does change how you deal with it and help you find quicker resolve.

Goal setting is important for two reasons. One is if you write a goal on paper you are more likely to remember it and work toward it. If you just let it cross your mind you may not remember to work on it later. Every small goal you accomplish moves you forward and enriches your life. The other reason goal setting is so important is that you can SEE it when it's done and acknowledge your achievement. Recognizing your successes and congratulating yourself motivates you to reach for more.

Work on self awareness. So many times we react to something in the wrong way and make matters worse somehow. The ability to be in the moment and observe yourself from a distance is a skill that will change your life by helping you make better decisions and improve relationships.

Time management is as important to the stay at home mom as to the CEO of a large corporation. Both positions carry too many responsibilities and unexpected tasks to be handled in a single day. Time management involves taking charge of your day and deciding what gets done and what can wait until tomorrow.

From managing to balance. Once our time is back in our own hands, balance will return to our lives. This balance is needed not only personally, but for everyone in the home. Proper balance makes the world move smoothly and life seem less of a struggle.

Eat right, exercise, and sleep well. This keeps your body feeling good and working properly which leads to maximum production for you.

You are not too old to begin again and learn from the mistakes that have made you wise. Personal development means taking a step back and learning more about you, focusing on that knowledge and changing those little mistakes into successes.
