Personal Development – what does it really mean to you?

I take quite a simple definition, its about anything that you want to change in your work, home or personal life.

 It can be about:

 How you react in different situations

  • Controlling your stress levels
  • Your work/life balance
  • Achieving your dreams
  • Work aspirations
  • Dealing with other people
  • How you perform a task

I could go on, although I expect you have the general idea.

 Self development can take as little as 10 minutes a day.  In reality, we forget in our busy lives to set aside this time for ourselves.  We place a low priority on what we do for ourselves compared to helping and supporting other people.

 So if you’re to make just one small change this week, allow yourself just ten minutes a day to think about what you’d like to change in your life and how you’re going to do it.

If you’re not sure where to start with your own personal development, ring Carolyn today on 07714 216388 to book your free consultation.

    For me, I always like to get outside my comfort zone, I like to do something that challenges me and my fears. I love rock climbing and abseiling but have a slight fear of heights. I overcome this by having confidence in my ability and my equipment. This enables me to realise I can change my thinking and attitude which I then apply to all aspects of daily living.

      That’s good stuff Will. Once we realise we CAN do something its a real confidence boost but it often has to be a conscious decision to go and try something that’s puts us out of our comfort zone in the first place. I’m going adventuring at the weekend – so I’m making a mental note to remember this
