How To Start Your Personal Development Journey.

              How To Start Your Personal Development Journey.

When you first start your development journey, it can be tempting to take short cuts. Thinking you already know who you are, what you want, what you stand for, and how to exemplify that. However, that’s not how the human mind works. Often, we hide the truths and are not honest with ourselves about these issues.

Follow these best practices to start your development journey, and you will succeed.

How To Start Your Personal Development Journey. 

Don’t Skip the SWOT 

You have to analyze yourself in every aspect of your life to find out what Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats you face for any of the target issues you want to address.

For example, if you perform a SWOT and realize that you're not very good at something, you then have a choice.

You can find someone to do it for you or find a training to learn to do it.

Nurture Your Strengths 

When you perform the SWOT for any sector of your life, you’ll also identify your strengths. The best thing to do in life is to choose to lead with your strengths. You want to keep doing the things you’re strong at and learn to do them even better since you’re interested in them in the first place. 

Improve Your Weaknesses 

 When you find out that you are weak in some areas, you’ll need to determine whether you should improve it yourself or improve it by outsourcing it. To determine which is better, ask yourself whether it really matters who does it or just that it is done.

Understand The 3 Domains of Personal                             Development 

They are physical, cognitive, and social-emotional. Together, these domains cover all aspects of your life, including health, work, personal growth, spiritual life, and so forth. Working on all aspects of your life usually is much better than focusing only on one as they are sometimes indistinguishable.

Plan for Action 

As you work through crafting your project, nothing gets done until you’ve set up action-packed steps and put them in your schedule to implement. Whether you are doing it yourself or outsourcing it, doing is the most critical part of the plan.

Focus on The Right Target Issue First – 

One reason it’s helpful to go through every single domain and issue you have before setting up a plan is that it helps you to know which issue to focus on first. For example, you cannot write a novel until you can read, and you can’t learn to write until you can read, first things first.

Be Persistent 

Once you have your action plan, which is developed based on reality and not on how you wish it to be, you only now need to be persistent and take the steps to success. It truly is that easy. Once you have the steps scheduled in your calendar and you start implementing them, your life will begin to change.

Get a Coach 

 If you understand everything, but your implementation skills leave something more to be desired, you may want to employ a life coach to help you. If you know some life coaches who specialize in personal development, you might want to talk to them. If you don’t know anyone, ask your friends or co-workers for recommendations. They will likely know someone or direct you to someone who knows more about the topic.

One thing to remember about personal development is that it is an ongoing process. You are never done.

There is no real finish line. It’s best to develop tenacity and persistence as you follow the path you’ve created for yourself, adjusting as you go based on facts, and learning about what is really and truly important to you deep in your subconscious. It’s all about knowing who you are and living a life that illustrates who you are.
