Personal growth is a journey and never a destination. Dream big, develop yourself, unleash your potential, play well with others, play to your strength, enjoy the process, share your unique gifts with the world, and grow your greatness by testing yourself, expanding yourself, learning and improving.
From the time that you're born, you are growing both physically and mentally. While it might seem to be a complicated process, you have been doing it from the time you were born. The precise definition varies as each psychologist and analysts interpret it in their unique way. But all the definitions point toward one thing: this is the process of personal evolution for the better. It includes modifying your thinking, personality, appearance, life goals, habits, diet, and on the list goes.
Growth is all about getting better. Personal growth is a crucial part of anyone’s thinking that wishes to get better in their field or in life.
Personal growth: the critical principle
Whether you are a solo professional, self-employed business owner, entrepreneur, or an individual seeking additional opportunity for improvement, there is one principle to understand. Seldom does your success exceed the size of your thoughts.
If you want more income, then you must change and expand your thinking to have more opportunities for available income. Do you want a better family life? Change your thinking and place a higher value on your family. Then, more opportunities for a. better family life will come your way. Many folks don't realize that both successful and unsuccessful people do not differ substantially in their abilities. They vary in their desire to reach for their potential. There is nothing more productive when it comes to reaching potential than committing to one's personal growth.
In what specific ways, you should ask, have you changed lately to reach your potential? Interestingly, many successful people are not the ones that started with the best circumstances, funding, startup business plan, or marketing acumen. They remained open to personal change. Personal growth calls for a person to strategically and intentionally make a step toward developing self to become better than they currently are. And, it requires the ability to add value to others.
Embrace your personal growth efforts. Welcome making changes. As a result, your inner and outer worlds will change. Then, when you change, more opportunity will come your way. There are many keys to success—a commitment to personal growth is one of the most important.
If one of the ways you want to change and grow is in how you live, begin by visiting open house events in your area or the area you’d like to live to expand your awareness of what is available.
When choosing a house or condo to live in for the next several years, comfort, convenience, and affordability are among the most important factors to keep in mind. A fourth item that many real estate agents would add to that list is "location."
The location of your next home is crucial for many reasons -- not the least of which is future resale value. Ideally, you want the value of your home to appreciate over time, which will help improve your financial situation. Whether you decide to upgrade or downsize in your next real estate purchase, the equity you've built up can benefit both your lifestyle goals and real estate objectives.
In addition to the investment features of picking a good location for your next home, there are also several other worthwhile advantages.
- A reasonable commute time, preferable under a half an hour, will help reduce your stress level, enable you to spend more time with your family, and reduce the amount of wear and tear on your vehicle. A short commute can also help you save money on gas, highway tolls, depreciation, and insurance. One way to reduce your driving time is to look into telecommuting possibilities at your job. Even if you have a relatively long commute to work, that can be offset by having the freedom to work from home a couple days a week. Fortunately, more and more businesses are realizing the mutual benefits of allowing or even encouraging telecommuting. While it may be necessary to prove to your employer that your productivity won't suffer when you're working from home, doing so can save you money, lower your stress, and improve your overall quality of life. Let's face it: There are a lot more fulfilling things you can do with your time than getting stuck in traffic jams and feeling frazzled when you return home every night!
- A convenient location can also mean proximity to shopping, entertainment, recreation, family, friends, and places of worship. Being close to medical, dental, and veterinary services can also make your life a lot easier -- especially when you need to get there quickly.
- From a health and fitness standpoint, it also pays to live within a short distance to public parks, tennis courts, golf courses, bike paths, gyms, and bodies of water for swimming, kayaking, and other aquatic sports.
- For younger families, being close to childcare resources -- whether it be a daycare center or nearby (and available) relative -- can also be a major factor in getting to work on time, making sure your children are properly cared for, and minimizing chaos in your life!
