When you schedule personal development time on purpose, you are making time to design the life you want. “People on the success curve live a life of responsibility. They take full responsibility for who they are, where they are, and everything that happens to them.” says Jeff Olson, author of “The Slight Edge: Turning Simple Disciplines into Massive Success and Happiness”
You are essentially who you create yourself to be. Once you embrace the “growth” habit, you will improve your way of life. You will think differently. Your approach to situations and problems in life will change. You will question your daily choices because you will expose yourself to different models of thinking. Your perspective and worldview will shift. You will be able to deal with setbacks or obstacles better. You will become your best self when you focus on YOU!
In the words of Lao Tzu, “Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power.” Know yourself and seek improvement.
When you make your personal goals as important as your professional goals, achieving balance is a natural result.
American psychologist Maslow suggests that all individuals have an in-built need for personal development which occurs through a process called self-actualisation.
He says, “The desire to become more and more what one is, to become everything that one is capable of becoming.” The desire to become the best version of yourself is the path to self-fulfillment
