Personal development refers to those activities that improve a person’s talents, potential, employability, consciousness, and the ability to realize dreams and create wealth. In short, it’s what you do to improve yourself and your prospects in life.
When last did you take time to think about you?
My challenge to you:
Print out this PDF Personal Development plan, get a BIG CUP OF MOJO, sit in the garden or on a comfy couch and just work on you!
This exercise should only take you 15min, make time for you!
In this developmental planner you will find:
Strengths: We do not focus much on these on a daily basis! If I asked you to list 20 strengths right now? Would you be able to? You see according to Marcus Buckingham (Strengths finder guru) we focus too much on our weakness and forget to use our natural strengths.
Weakness: Things you know you are not that great in. Why do we list these? We all need to improve, learn & grow.
Audio/Books: I try to complete at least 2 books a week, learning from others and empowering yourself with knowledge is the key to success. I tend to be on the roads a lot so I use Audible.com, check them out.
Online Courses: Once a month I try and challenge myself to complete an online course, currently busy with a productivity course. You see, you need to always be learning to stay relevant in your industry. This is where I find awesome courses Udemy.com
Blogs to follow: Even a quick read like a blog can empower you! Let me know in the comments what blogs you follow so I can go check them out!
Then my favorite Networking events: Love being around great minds and learning from other entrepreneurs, join my community of awesome female bosses "Business Boss Club" here in South Africa.
So there you have it! Take action and start developing yourself! You deserve it and you most certainly are worth it!
