Advice For Success In Personal Development

Advice For Success In Personal Development

You should always be focusing on your personal development. A few of the most important things personal development covers: 
  • managing your finances 
  • finding a new hobby
  • changing your diet
  • spending habits
  • etc.

Seek out those with similar positive attitudes. This will reinforce the aspects of your personality that you are seeking to develop, while allowing you to distance yourself from toxic individuals in your life.

Avoiding a decision means missing out on an opportunity when engaging in personal development. You should not avoid decision making, even if you feel that you do not have all the information. Good instincts derive from making successful decisions. Even mistaken decisions are valuable because they provide instructive learning experiences. When you make a wrong choice, you are likely to make a better one next time.

Reading books on the subject of personal development or self-improvement is good for you. Well written books on personal development will always spark new ideas and give suggestions on altering your life. It is always best to check the reviews for a book. Personal development books can be very poorly written.

Your core principles are important, and your actions should reflect them. Everyone has a set of beliefs that is integral to their identity. You will be able to feel proud of yourself if you do not make compromises and follow your values. Even better, when you act on your principles, you will become more consistent without having to make any effort to do so. This is an excellent trait to be cultivating.

In order to be properly motivated toward personal development goals, it is important to admit how much you do not know. When you realize your place in the universe, you realize that you have a lot to learn. As soon as you have this idea lodged in your brain, you are going to want to understand and be able to learn different things, which leads to improving yourself.

You should stay in great physical condition in order to get the best out of personal development. Make sure you are getting enough sleep, eating a healthy diet, and exercising on a regular schedule so that you have enough energy during the day, and you will find it will be a little easier to reach success. A healthy body makes it easier to concentrate on personal development, even though it may be a challenge.

Tell other people positive things. By being kind to others, you will also begin to care about yourself more.

You have to provide care for yourself before you can properly care for other people. No matter what point you are in on your journey, you should always take time to breathe.

If you’re dealing with severe problems, you may benefit from regular therapy. Reading books on self-help may only take you so far. The personal consultation with a therapist gives more direct and focused help. Some people can find success in achieving their psychological issues just by being able to talk to someone about them. The therapeutic discussion that you can have with a psychiatrist, is beyond the abilities of even the most comprehensive and detailed self-help book.

Arrange a meeting to speak with a counselor or clergy member. These people are educated and licensed to handle any problems you have, and usually have experience as well. They will help you figure out what things are bothering you and what you can do to sort them out. When you can talk out your issues with a licensed professional, you will find your life will be much happier.

You can learn to effectively handle your emotions, even during difficult situations. Learning ways to maintain your composure when stressed will help boost your self-esteem, and help you triumph under any circumstance. When facing stress, make sure you relax and take deep breaths to regain your control.

Do not go shopping for comfort. Taking up a hobby is a better alternative. Do so and you will avoid cluttering up your life with needless possessions; even better, you will save yourself a great deal of money.

Life is unpredictable and taking a few calculated risks is necessary. Many people do not like to take chances because they don’t want to feel like a failure, so they would rather stay cemented in their comfort zone, which often leads to an unfulfilled life. Being capable of undertaking risks may ultimately be a contributing factor in one’s overall happiness.

In order to expand your horizons, you should first make a list of goals. For instance, if increased self-confidence is something you desire, jot it down on your list. You then want to think of different things you can do to improve in that area, so for confidence you’d want to find ways to be more confident. You would then put yourself into the situations that would make it happen. If you face the problem in an organized way, you have more chance of succeeding.

It may become discouraging to begin developing better personal habits and lifestyles, but once you start noticing your life developing towards a better future, you will never want to stop. You can always develop better ways to do things and it’s important to always try hard towards any personal development goals you have.

My accident happened on February 5th, 2012 after my bartending shift at the Blue Martini in Orlando, FL late one night. I was driving on my way to a friend’s house in Tampa, FL who I was temporarily staying with at the time. I was told that my car veered off the interstate and flipped five times, my body was found 50 feet from it. I’ve tried very hard to discover how my body made it that distance from the car, and who found me, but I still don’t know. The accident report didn’t say much. I received a phone call from a sergeant eventually who told me I was airlifted to Orlando Regional Medical Center unconscious when my trach and feeding tube were implanted, but they didn’t expect me to make it. I was in a coma for five to six weeks after my car accident. I woke up with a traumatic brain injury, liver laceration, lung confusion, subluxation to my neck, amnesia, epilepsy, a fractured lumbar spine, and a fractured pelvis with pins implanted. The pins were removed a few months later. Talk about a painful surgery. Healing is an ongoing process, but for me there are some specific things that have helped along the way: Keeping track of everything to care for my daily hygiene. Listing these things with a dry erase marker on my bathroom mirror used to help. Recognizing what I’m not supposed to say. Deciding what TO SAY, what NOT TO SAY, and WHEN to say WHAT. Isn’t easy to do and I still haven’t mastered it. There are things I’m supposed to talk only to certain people about, and some things I should keep to myself. When I’m being upfront and honest with someone, I can’t assume whatever I’m saying or doing is right, just because in my head, being truthful is “the way I’m supposed to be”. Believe it or not, oddly enough, that isn’t always the case! Learning how to RECOGNIZE which is which is vital. Don’t believe what everyone says. Do your own research. Discover your own truth. Know who I can talk to with the confidence that I'll be given honest feedback from them. What prescriptions must I take daily, how many times a day, how many pills in each dosage, and how to stay on a schedule with my doctors so I don’t run out of my medications. How to keep myself on track. I try and find simple ways to include all things I need to do, my appointments, yoga classes, homework, social life, fitness, etc. Figuring out the most effective ways that can progressively help manage my pain. A therapist is a must have. Someone I can tell everything to and have it kept confidential. I must constantly fight hard to make each of my days better. That’s the way it is. Accept it, don’t give up, and keep going. YouTube and the Word synonym tool are necessities I can’t live without. Keep the alcohol to a MINIMUM. If any, but not drinking AT ALL is the best-case scenario-by a long shot. I’ve been working on how to stop talking out loud as much while being overwhelmingly passionate about things. For me, moving forward is about resilience. Why? I’ve learned that being resilient to words people say about, to, and against me have subconsciously built up an ulterior strength within me. This strength is like a shield that gives me the power to just keep going. To be resilient means to keep moving forward despite having the odds stacked against me. Just to keep it moving and continue giving my all every single day, gripping onto the hope it’ll all make perfect sense at some point. How the next day and the day after that aren’t going to feel the same. Resilience has aided me in finding somewhere I can fit in, and enjoy what I’m doing. Also, being resilient in my situation has created the ability for me to have a positive impact on others. I'm not depressed anymore. I’m quite happy with myself at this point. Now don’t get me wrong, I still have a long list of goals I’m going to achieve, or die trying. Haha, that’s the fight in me talking out loud. Resilience has abetted me in accepting the new Christy you could say. Vinyasa yoga has helped improve my pain and flexibility a lot. I’m sure my sanity too. I haven’t tried much meditation yet, but I plan to, although I tried a breathing exercise on Kevin’s Instagram last night and loved it! I want to get good at it. I don’t know why, but when I start feeling fatigued or when I just want to write my mind on paper, sitting by the ocean really helps calm me. I think I’m a bit hyperactive, but I’ve noticed when I wake up and go straight to the gym, get on the treadmill at 3.4 speed and just go for an hour. It really helps motivate me about my day and somehow makes it easier for me to fall asleep when I hop into bed. I also take part in Vinyasa yoga, instructed by Di, only 2 times a week hosted at Suncoast Fitness in St. Petersburg, FL. It has helped build my strength, improve my flexibility, and ease my thoughts to a noticeable degree. As I move forward in this journey and look to the future, I’m planning on one day starting a YouTube channel and raising money to develop an app for TBI survivors. Like a life coach in a sense, and hopefully I’ll have the opportunity to teach survivors how to use it, or make it very simple and self-explanatory. It would also be nice to make hospitals aware of the app one day so they'll be able to reference it and help others who have been affected by brain injury.
