Personal development goals mean to access the inbuilt powers of body and soul. Personally developed people do productive things. They know the power of good qualities. Personal Qualities help a person to grow in life. Developed people are aware of their skills and qualities.
A developed person consistently does the hard work to convert weaknesses into strengths. People who know their responsibilities(family, relationships, village, nation, world or people who know the importance of goal setting in life are more successful than others. Average people often create resolutions at the beginning of each year. They do goal setting and create plans and processes to follow. But some fail to follow.
Failure is a part of life. A person can grow after failure by setting personal development goals. Any failure will be successful if he/she follows their goal setting worksheet. There are hundreds of obstacles in the path but developed persons clear those obstacles by doing consistent hard work with a focused approach towards their goals.
Economic development, social development, health development, environmental development, skill development, etc. all depends on personal development. One developed person can develop thousands of persons.
We all are trying, listening, and seeing thousands of lectures, blogs, news, etc. on development, development! development! everywhere but nothing is happening. I think we’re (professionals, entrepreneurs, students brands, business) missing one big thing. The big thing is that “We depend on others for our own personal development”. I believe that personal development is depending on the person rather than on others.
Yes, social and governmental approaches and policies are important too. But personal development starts on our own. I also know that family, socialism also help and support a person in their development. I even say that “outer or socialism plays a very important role in human development”. But the first step for personal development is taken by the person (who wants first own development) then family, relations, village, socialism, and government can help.
You can’t teach personal development to a person if he/she doesn’t want to learn and you can’t develop a person he/she doesn’t want to develop. Only interested in growth can learn, analyze, think and do the personality development courses, learn personality development skills, follow the personality development tips, can talk about personal development topics, discussion and ask a question about it and set personal development goals.
No one else. Others don’t do it because they don’t know the importance of goal setting in their life or they’re living their life or they are happy and it’s OK. They don’t want improvements, changes (mean growth) and they are happy. And I think don’t disturb other people or don’t force others to develop. They don’t act by listening from us or from other sources about personal development goals. To make them interested we have to act. Listen again; we have to show them, yes. Maybe it sounds a little selfish/hard/dominate able. But be like a leader, lead people in their development. Be a captain of your own souls.
For example, A teacher was a student, a leader once a follower or if I want to help my brother or sister in their personal development or in life then I have to be developed first. I have to be a developed person first mentally, physically, financially, socially, spiritually, etc. to help others like my own brother. They learn from our actions, they learn by seeing us, but for that don’t first focus on others for your own development do not depend on government policies and never on politicians.
They are speech or speechless robots. But you can learn from those people who do actions, who inspire you by actions, not by speech or lectures. I think you got my point. Remember, I don’t mean that uneducated or less educated people are not developed. Development means what is important to do! and it is be known by a kid, school students, professional or anybody.
If you didn’t understand yet, let’s see this example: What I mean to developed? or important things?
What is important to do? One of below known by personally developed people
