Why is Personal Development Important?

We have all had some area in our life that we would like to improve. Whether it is our health, relationship, career or finances – we all have something that we want to take to the next level, but for one reason or another, we just never made it happen. In order to improve any of these areas, we need to improve ourselves first and that is why personal development is so important.

“Personal development is a major time-saver. The better you become, the less time it takes you to achieve your goals. ”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    ~   Brian Tracy 

What is Personal Development?

Personal development is a transformational process, in which improvements are made in our thoughts, our beliefs, and our habits, and consequently in our mental, emotional, spiritual, social and physical state.

We can learn how to discover our potentials and talents as well as how to overcome our fears and obstacles. The more we learn about ourselves, the better life we are able to create.

Possibilities are endless – more satisfying and meaningful life, increased self-confidence, improved relationships, successful career, better health, expanded wealth…

In order to see these improvements, it is necessary to become aware that we create our own experiences and to take responsibility for our lives.

Once we recognize our non-supportive thoughts, beliefs, and habits that have prevented us from achieving our goals, we are able to make changes necessary to improve every aspect of our lives and to live the life that we truly desire.

What Methods Work the Best?


Sometimes it can be difficult to choose where to start because there are so many options out there.

Personal development is a huge industry and has a lot to offer, from online courses, webinars, live seminars, books, meditations, audio and video recordings to life coaching and individual mentoring.

Every person is a unique and because of this, there is no universal strategy for everybody.

It is up to the individual to make a decision whether they want to improve their lives and then to find out what works best for them.

Once this process is ongoing, we are able to find meaning and purpose in our lives. We become aware of different opportunities that have always been there but we have not been aware of them. We discover new skills and talents, and life goals become possible and achievable.

“If you’re not willing to learn, no one can help you. If you’re determined to learn, no one can stop you.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    ~ T.

  1. I once asked ‘what part of my life should I change first?’ The answer that I got was: ‘pick the least difficult part that needs change. Set yourself up for success. once you change the least difficult part of your life, then move on to the next least difficult and so on.’ I am still working on my least difficult, but I am making progress.
