What is personal growth and what does that mean?
Personal growth is an ongoing process of understanding yourself on a deeper level in your life from where you stand right now. It encompasses maturity, perception, and overall happiness in life. It can make a strong impact on your emotional, physical, and spiritual health. It creates an awareness of any imbalances that are in your life. Your home atmosphere, overall health, family, and social activities to name a few.
Many people are not aware of what personal growth is and how important it is in the different stages of life that we go through. It requires a process of self-learning other than the traditional curriculum of schools and higher levels of education. There are many self-help books and videos out there that are easy to access and are simple and easy to understand. They can provide a wealth of information to help you with your “personal growth” chapter in life.
A personal growth coach can also benefit providing direction, encouragement, and general feedback for your personal needs. It’s quite amazing how much you can learn in a short period of time if you are open-minded. I have discovered that the main benefits of experiencing personal growth are how you accept life’s natural aging process and also other challenges when they arise.
There is an old Zen saying “Don’t fight the dragon…ride it.” I have found this to be so true in my life. Definitely words of wisdom.
Personal growth is the one thing that no one can take away from you and that you cannot lose. With learning general knowledge and information we can forget it at some point in time. Our mind can hold so much information that we can feel the overload, causing a stress response. Hence, your mind shuts it out. A defense mechanism of the mind so to speak.
Personal knowledge of oneself is true wisdom. You know when you feel the shift in your mind and thinking. It is like climbing the ladder of life. You move up a step and you know it. You learn something “you didn’t know… that you didn’t know.”
From my personal experience, it has had a huge impact on my life and it is still developing and unfolding in a wonderful way.
I hope this blog inspires you to open doors to your personal growth.
Enjoy your life’s journey!
