Personal Development, Growth And The Achievement Of Your Goals

What Exactly is Personal Development and Growth?

Personal development in a nutshell means taking action to improve those areas of your life that you are not satisfied with, and releasing the POTENTIAL that lies dormant inside of you.

We all have dreams and aspirations, but very few of us ever fulfill them. There are so many reasons why we don’t become the person we want to be that it can be difficult to know where to start.

The main contributor stopping you from succeeding is negativity!!

Negativity breeds procrastination and procrastination is the mother of failure. Many people dream of things they want to do, and become, but always put off taking any action to achieve their dreams, until tomorrow. It’s true what they say “tomorrow never comes.” Today was tomorrow yesterday!! Life is very short and the years rush by. It’s time to take action right now.

Another reason why people don’t take action is fear.

Fear of failure, of the unknown, of stepping outside of the comfort zone and taking risks. All great achievers have taken risks, many have burned and crashed, only to rise like a phoenix from the ashes and soar to great heights. They were able to achieve success because they banished fear from their minds and had the courage of their convictions, they could actually visualise being successful.

Don’t blame yourself

It is not entirely your fault that fear and procrastination are preventing you from becoming the person you desperately want to be.There is so much negativity in the world today, it’s no surprise,that like many of us, you, whether you are aware of it or not, have probably absorbed some of it into your way of thinking. Even your close friends and family may have contributed to your failure to take action by warning you of the risks involved in following your heart and chasing your dreams. Even though they did this out of love and concern for your welfare,don’t listen to them, they are not you!!

Success is a good thing!

Even cultural differences can affect the way people think about success. In America for instance success is applauded and encouraged, while here in the UK the emphasis is all about honest hard work, being grateful to be employed and general acceptance of average wages and long hours of toil. Success is looked upon as something only the few, either, highly educated or privileged individuals can achieve.

Good grades don’t guarantee success

Attaining good educational qualifications obviously can only be an advantage when looking for employment, but it is not vital to becoming successful. Many successful people throughout history have achieved personal success even though they didn’t achieve academic success. Richard Branson dropped out of education at 16, Bill Gates who founded Microsoft was a college drop out, Walt Disney dropped out of high school at 16, Henry Ford dropped out at 16, Benjamin Franklin, one of the founding fathers of the united states and a brilliant man, only spend TWO years at school. He went on to achieve incredible success. His education came from real life, from LIVING life.

You CAN achieve your dreams

OK, not every one can be rich and successful but that does not mean that you can’t. Whatever your age, gender or race, you CAN change your life.Start to think positively, become more focused on what you want from life. Start to BELIEVE in your self, and take action RIGHT NOW – TODAY!

It can be a little scary, making changes in your life, and you will need a hand to organise yourself, but Don’t Panic, there is help at hand. Go ahead make this year THE year that you start moving toward your dreams.
