Personal Growth and Development: 5 Easy Tips

Personal growth and spiritual growth often go hand in hand.  However, if you focus on your personal growth, spiritual growth will often be a natural part of that.  So we will focus on your overall personal growth and development.

Below are 5 easy tips which, if you take them on board, will help you with your personal growth and development.

Never Assume You Know it All

Arguably the most important attitude to adopt when pursuing personal growth and development is one of humility. Presuming that you already know all there is to know about personal development is a key indicator that you have come to a stand-still in this area. Those who accept that there is a vast amount of things that they do not know are the people who grow the most personally and spiritually.

Balance Optimism with Critical Thinking

“Positive thinking” and “optimism” are frequently mentioned when talking about personal growth and development. However, too much optimism can be bad for you. It can choke out your ability to develop the skill of thinking critically. While it’s good to be optimistic remember that it’s also good to be able to recognize the negative things that affect you – this will allow you to learn from them. Regardless of how hard you work or how much you know, there will always be more that you can learn.

Look for the Meaning in Nature

C.S. Lewis once said that he believed the source of most of people’s problems to be that they are so disconnected with the rest of creation. These days most of our lives are spent inside, with man-made creations. Many lessons which can be applied to your personal and spiritual growth and development can be learned by spending more time outside in the amazing wonders of nature.

Take Care of Your Body

The authors of the New Testament liken their body to a temple. When you think about it, this makes sense, and is applicable not just to Christians but to everyone. If your body is unfit you lack physical energy, the ability to focus and willpower. But when your body is healthy you have more energy, you can focus for longer and you have willpower – it’s less of an effort to dedicate time and energy towards your personal growth and development.

Have a Purpose

Personal and spiritual growth is very rewarding and will positively affect your life. However, sometimes people fall into the trap of focusing on their personal growth just for the sake of it, with no real reason for it. Having a purpose for your life will help you to avoid getting sidetracked by things that might get in the way of your personal growth and development. It will give you the drive you need to persevere when things get difficult.

These are my 5 tips to help you with your personal growth and development. Hopefully you will take one or more of them on board and put them into effect in your life and see the results for yourself.
