EVERYTHING happens for a reason. And sometimes, one thing leads to another. Rather than locking yourself up in fear and dwelling over your past failures, treat them as your teachers and they’ll become stepping stones in your personal development and success.
SO, when does personal development become synonymous with success? Where do we begin? Follow these hints.
QUIT believing and feeling as though you’re a failure, because you’re not. How many other people will accept you if you can’t even accept yourself?
Whenever you see success around you, think PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT, not self pity. Self acceptance isn’t just about appearance. It runs much deeper. Focus on inner beauty.
Whenever people around you feel low, take it upon yourself to cheer them up. Don’t get sucked into the negative emotions or you’ll both end up feeling in the dumps.
There’s plenty of room for all types of skills and abilities in this world. Don’t compare yourself to others more intelligent or skillful than you are, there’s always plenty of time to learn and improve.
Take things one step at a time. Personal development is a marathon, not a sprint.
Personal development results in inner stability, personality maturity and success. It develops from self-assurance, self appreciation and self-esteem.
Set meaningful and achievable goals…
SOMETIMES, we fail to recognise how the small things we do affect others, things like giving someone a pat on the back, saying “hi” , or saying something like “hey, I love your tie!”. While we become appreciative of the beautiful things in and around us, we likewise become beautiful to them.
Once we’re willing to embrace change and go through the process of self development, we ought to remember that there’s no such thing as an ‘over night success’. We’re all here to learn our lessons. Our parents, teachers, acquaintances, co-workers, neighbours… they’re all our teachers. When we open up our minds to personal development, we significantly improve our chances to achieve the success we want.
