It’s been said that readers are leaders and I want to be the best leader I can be for my family, organization, and community.

When I was 15, I bought Tony Robbins’ audio tape, Awaken the Giant Within. But it wasn’t until 20 years later, when I heard Jim Rohn’s Goal Seminar, that I fell in love with personal growth. This journey helps us get better, feel happier, and better understand ourselves and the world. Here are five ways personal growth can make you a better person.

  1. Know Yourself Better: Personal growth helps you learn about your thoughts, feelings, and what makes you do things. When you know yourself better, you can live more purposefully.
  2. Keep Learning and Adapting: When working on personal growth, we commit to learning for our whole lives by reading books or attending events that teach new things. This keeps our minds open, so we’re ready for change as life goes on.
  3. Set Goals & Achieve Them: With personal development tools, you set goals that matter to you. When achieving them, you feel happy and motivated to aim higher next time.
  4. Improve Relationships & Communication: Personal development teaches how to be understanding, and respectful, and solve problems well. This makes relationships with others much stronger and more satisfying.
  5. Bounce Back from Hard Times: Easier Life is sometimes tough, but working on ourselves prepares us. We become strong enough emotionally and mentally to handle difficult situations. We also get the opportunity to inspire others too!

Remember, personal development isn’t one-size-fits-all. It’s about finding what works best for YOU!

Focus on becoming better every day; soon, your life will improve. So, start today!
