What is Personal Development?
A common question – What is Personal Development (PD) and why do we need it for our lives?
Let’s consider some facts. Anatomically speaking, we are the highest evolved species on planet earth.
However, have we thought about the evolving our mind, spirit, and awareness?
The dictionary meaning of the word “personal” comes from “person”. Therefore, PD technically covers all aspects of a person – mind, body, spirit, and awareness.
Any activity that helps us to experience the highest expression of our mind, body, and spirit is Personal Development!
The benefits of PD is multi-faceted – ranging from self-awareness, happiness, and to building healthy relationships. Self-awareness helps you to grow inside out.
An integral aspect of awareness is self-love. Charity starts at home, so to love oneself before extending it to others is important. Self Confidence, a byproduct of PD is attained when we are in alignment with own values and beliefs systems.
PD helps us to prioritize our goals, stay focused, and helps us make decisions on something that we generally dislike or not well connected to. A strong psyche is a recipe for success when it comes to building healthier relationships whether it be personal or professional.
We all never stop developing and changing but that’s what makes us human, our ability to change/grow and learn new things about ourselves and the world.
