So it’s now 4th December 2016 sorry 2017 I’m still getting my mind round it. As I do as a marketing expert I take my time every new year to research and take a journey round social media to see what is happening in the World Wide Web. I have my black book of list of subjects and categories I would like to research I then explore and dive in, I must say it’s quite an insightful experience something I suggest you should try it’s amazing what you learn.
“I must admit I am a sucker for learning it’s part of who I’am. So how is the New Year treating you all?”
Well for me I have this silent itch to make 2017 begin with awesomeness. I had a bit of an hiccup yesterday and I quickly remembered Oh no not yet it’s only January and I quickly and swiftly picked myself up and recovered quickly, let’s see how long I can hold up.
I’m sure I am not the only one getting ready to tick of their list of goals, wishes and dreams. You know developing yourself spiritually, emotionally, mentally and physically can lead to a much happier life and personal development places a large part in that.
Mastering a few basic skills and implementing them into your life goes along way when you stop in the middle of the year to look back to see how far you have come. The basics of personal development is learning to manage our time more successfully, setting realistic goals for ourselves, understanding ourselves, building self-worth and self-esteem and having a meaningful and purposeful life.
I have come to understand that in order to gain personal development that works and brings results it is essential that we know who we really are, while this might sound silly, very few people realise their true self-worth and what they are capable of achieving. Trust me I’ve been down this road and it was only when I built up the confidence and courage, because it dose take courage, to up my self-worth thermometer that things really changed in my personal and business life. Only by realising the difference you make to the world, what holds you back from achieving what you want out of life and how to fully develop yourself to reach what you want, can you then really begin to develop.
So How Can We Get Started In Developing Our Lives for Success And happiness For 2017?
1. Well Changes don’t happen overnight
I know it might not be what you would like to here right now sorry, but for any changes that we are wanting to make in 2017 to work successfully it’s going to have to require time and effort on our part; they won’t happen overnight simply because we want to change. We must set our minds to devoting our efforts to what we want to change and develop and focus on them until we get there.
As mentioned before if we want to develop ourselves then we have to have a solid base from which to work from, we have to be aware of whom we are. Once we discover this it brings a whole new meaning and purpose to life, by taking a long deep look at ourselves we discover everything there is to know and we bring out our creative side more. We open the door to our intuition and let go of our imagination, which many of us don’t use to its full extent, and we are able to develop these feelings.
2. Key points to personal development
The key points to personal development that I have learnt are successful are include: knowing what it is you want from life and how you will achieve it, breaking free from your beliefs that you have limits and letting go of thoughts and emotions that have held you back, becoming more in tune with yourself and letting your intuition and creative side out, understanding why you make a difference, and successfully changing your thoughts, feelings and way of thinking so you can continue expanding.
When we were young children if some of us can remember that far back, “Do you remember that?” We didn’t hold back or deny ourselves anything and that resulted in us growing, and due to this we continue to grow and we continue to develop from a child into an adult. We continually learn and adapt and better ourselves.
Young children don’t seem to have the fears that we develop as adults, life is so much simpler and easier to cope with and deal with, a child’s mind is open and they continually use their imagination and intuition, they are not afraid of what they can and cannot do. It is only when we reach adulthood we hold ourselves back and make things complicated, we still use our mind but we use it the wrong way, we turn it in on ourselves.
It’s Time To Let Go And Think Like A Young Child Again And Fly
So with this mind let’s begin 2017 with the understanding that we are worth every penny, every energy, every time and ever breath and that the world is waiting for you to sign your signature on its Mother Mind and 2017 is yours to do as you wish with it.
