What is Personal Development?
Personal Development is based on many scientific theories that have proven that you can change your life.
For instance, Cognitive Theory states that when you learn how to identify your sabotaging thought patterns you can then learn to transform them into constructive ones. Your thoughts guide your feelings and actions so this naturally changes your life for the better.
The Emotional Intelligence theory encourages you to become more aware of your emotions in the present moment and learn how to discrimate the different feelings and how they affect your actions and behaviours. You can actually learn how to activate positive feelings to make the situation improve and successfully achieve your goals.
So, Why Don’t People Use Personal Development?
Lack of knowledge is the main reason. People don’t know how much it can help them grow and achieve. Also, people fear change. Although they might be miserable or happy in life – they don’t want to change.
Why Personal Development then?
With personal development tools and techniques you’ll no longer be a victim to social constructs. When you were a child the people around you – your parents, family members, teachers, doctors and so on – taught you how to think, what to feel and how to behave in the world. These repetitive patterns gave you people are calling a “Template for Living”. This template dictates all your habits, even the sabotaging ones. Once you learn how to recognise how your thoughts, beliefs and feelings are creating your life – you can change them …. which in turn changes your life to how you want it to be. You’re already creating your life – you’re just not doing it ON PURPOSE. Using PD techniques you can ON PURPOSE steer your life in the direction you want it to go.
