PRINCIPLES OF SUCCESSFUL SELF-GROWTH

 

THE CHOICE TO GROW IS YOURS

“How many therapists does it take to change a light bulb?” – Only one. But the light bulb has to want to change.

People must make the choice to change and take full responsibility for their circumstances.

Change starts from within. If you don’t work toward taking 100% control over your life you will not see significant progress.

LEARN TO TAKE RISKS

Learning to take risks means stepping outside your comfort zone and experiencing something totally new. Excitement in life comes from taking risks and working to transform yourself into the person you want to be. Most people love to travel the world for the fact that it’s such a growth provoking experience, you’re seeing new and exciting place and able to grow as a overall person.

UNDERSTAND YOUR VALUES

One way to learn more about your values and purpose is to create your own personal mission statement.

Ask yourself:

What do I value most in life?

What is my life’s person?

What legacy do I want to leave?

List the answer to these questions to get a clearer understanding of what type of life you want to lead.

MAKE IT HAPPEN

If you’ve written your mission statement you’re more self-aware and understand what you want from your personal development. Now you need to make sure to follow through and make it happen by having discipline and self-control.

MAINTAIN A POSITIVE ATTITUDE

With a positive attitude we can seek growth in everything we do. We’ll have more energy and enthusiasm, and naturally look toward what we can learn and gain from unexpected situations. We’ll keep an excited perspective toward new experiences and be willing to work past set-backs.
