When you are a unique, creative individual it is likely that you will take pride in your identity. Determine what would make you happier and as long as it is healthy, implement it. Have fun with your identity and express yourself with style, office and home décor and don’t worry about others. When you feel that you are what you want to be you are on your way to personal development.
Keep lists of your progress daily. When you have completed these lists, don’t be so quick to throw them away. Just because the lists are complete does not mean that you are done with them. Try surrounding yourself with your progress by keeping them and displaying them. This can give you drive and let you know that you can accomplish your goals.
Believe it or not being too nice to others often means not being nice enough to yourself. Part of personal development is fulfilling the obligation to self and this cannot always be accomplished when you are at the beck and call of a dozen individuals. You need to put yourself at the top of your list of priorities, and then tend to others.
If you’re facing a difficult problem in your life, don’t be afraid to turn to a group. There are many groups available that can help with almost any struggle that an individual faces. Groups provide a support system of like minded individuals. They increase your potential for success and give you others who you can remain accountable to.
Discovering who you are as an individual can be one of the hardest things to do in life – personal development or not. Experimentation and self-expression are essential to be successful in becoming your own. Once you begin identifying with what works for you when expressing yourself you will become more confident and happy. Enjoy and love yourself!!
