Everyone wants to be successful in life. Everyone dreams of having the perfect life, to be rich, famous, to be in a happy relationship, but how do you achieve this? But Dreamers can’t always be Achievers. Success comes to those who work hard and strive to create a positive change in their life. This change can be brought about by Personal growth and development of the Self. Personal Growth is a lifelong process. It is a way to assess one’s skills and qualities, understand one’s goals in life and to plan accordingly in order to achieve them. Personal growth is a process of expanding one’s horizons through experiences and learning. Self-development has to be achieved on 3 levels for a person to become successful in life:-Physical – In order to be successful one has to be physically healthy. Having a healthy diet and exercising daily is the first step to self-development. A healthy person will not be lethargic or inactive and therefore can work hard and achieve their goals. Mental – The mind and the body work together and therefore one has to give equal attention to both. It is important for a person to develop good thinking habits, good study habits, pursuing ideas, and trying to find new ways to apply them to human behaviour and in work. Spiritual – Finally it is important to develop yourself spiritually. It is crucial to have an open mind and to learn from others. Reading, Travelling, talking to different people is therefore key in expanding one’s mind and horizons. It is, therefore, very important to acknowledge that learning is never complete and that one can learn from everything. In order to begin the process of personal growth one must follow the following steps:-Understand that there is a need to improve yourself: The first step to development is acknowledging that you are not perfect and that you need to make a change in your life in order to be successful. Identifying your goals in life: The next step is to identify what you want in life correctly. You have to recognize what makes you happy and then evaluate your skills in order to discern what exactly it is that you want to achieve. If you look for a job which is safe but which you don’t like, then you’ll never be successful. It is important to take risks and pursue what you love. Planning your personal growth process: This step involves mapping out a list of what you want to achieve in the next 10 years and then identify how you can achieve those goals. The key is to break down the whole process into smaller goals and then work individually to achieve those smaller goals which in turn will lead to the bigger aim in life. Implementing positive change in your life: Only thinking about what you want to do is not sufficient. You have to work in order to see change in your life. Take risks, make mistakes. Keep trying because the more you fail the more you know what not to do in order to be successful. Keeping an open mind and constantly developing your plan: Learning is a lifelong process and you will not be the same person in 5 years that you are today. On your journey to success you will meet many people and you will learn new things. It is important to integrate this new learning into your future plans. You might discover that your passion lies in some other field that the one you are currently pursuing. Therefore keep an open mind and do what makes you happy.
