How to start your self development journey
I have been on a personal development journey for as long as I can remember.
People are always asking me how to get started with personal development and because it has always been a part of who I am, I find it difficult to know the exact point I began and therefore, how it actually started.
In this blog post, I am going to be sharing some thoughts on how I believe it is possible to get started – and how – at any time in your life. No matter how old you are, who you are, or your background.
How to change
In my experience of teaching, training and mentoring, I would say that the majority of people want to improve themselves in some way or another. It could be a lack of time or motivation that stops them, lack of confidence or self-esteem, or plain old procrastination.
Here’s an overview of the things you’ll need to consider doing, and the mindsets you’ll need to adopt, if you are truly ready to start your personal development journey:
Self awareness. Before you can change, you have to know who you currently are. Your habits, thought patterns, mental blocks, as well as your values and motivators. Take an honest look at who you are and where you are at right now in life, and then think about what you will need to do, and also what you will need to sacrifice, in order to become the person you want to be.
Seek feedback. Change takes time – if you are going to truly change that is. And the chances are you’re not always going to get it right first time. Speak to people you trust and ask for their feedback about how you are getting along. Listen to their responses, don’t try and justify yourself if they say something you don’t like. Take it on board, and then aim to do better next time. This is what I call being Coachable. If you want to learn more about this, then have a read of my recent blog post, “Coachable? The five traits of coachability.”
Find a role model or mentor. Seek out someone who has been through a similar personal development journey to the one you are wishing to get started on. Contact them, explain what your plans are and ask them for a little time and help. Chances are they will be so flattered that they say yes!
Read! You are what you feed your mind. I recommend that you take very seriously this advice, because there is nothing more vital to personal development than learning from the Masters who have gone before you.
