Design My Path Of Personal Development - Self-Development Snippets
According to the Statistic Brain Research Institute, improving oneself entails 73.9% of people’s continuous desires and goals. Honestly, what an encouraging information this is; to see that the greater majority of individuals recognize that they could think better, do things better, or even simply be a better person.
Through hundreds of thousands of self-development inquiries, below you can find one of the most popular ones with a focus on, but not limited to, professional self-development topics. And as always, should you need further assistance in planning and accomplishing this topic, reach out to me.
I once heard that
50% of the solution for a problem [task/project] is solved by the art of asking the right questions
In designing your own path of personal development, I believe the right questions could be something like:
Who Am I?
What Are My Aspirations?
What Motivates Me?
What Is My Value Creation Potential?
What Do I Want To Be Known For?
Answering these questions should not entail just about 3-5 minutes of your time. Some people spend their lifetime figuring them out, and still aren’t fully satisfied with their answers. One should start their process as soon as they can, and doing it so intentionally and systematically.
As you take some shots at answering these questions, or even other ones of your own, I’d encourage you to answer them in three different contexts (thus each question should have three different answers):
These three Ps, my methodology to coaching clients, are what I believe what encompasses the entirety of a person and a business. Thus, putting it to practice in the petitioned context, here is how the first question (“Who Am I?”) would look like answered:
Personally - I am simply a person who strives to grow continuously while enjoying life and relationships.
Professionally - I love with a passion to facilitate other individuals and companies to flourish.
Philanthropically - The giving of my time, talent, and treasure while supporting sustainable growth entails my volunteering persona.
Taking action on designing your path to personal development allows you to be more intentional about who you are and who you want to become, all the while being more effective and efficient with your life and life’s purpose.
Should you need an extra kick start, a great starting point to answering these questions to be able to design your personal development path is by exploring and taking some self-assessments.
