4 Top Personal Development Methods

personal development methods

Do you strive to be the best person that you can be? Is there an area of your life that you want to excel in?

Most people have at least one personal development goal that they are continuously working on. Some are trying to become more patient and understanding. Others are attempting to stop self-limiting attitudes. The list goes on and on.

How do you achieve greatness in whatever area you’re trying to change? Try one of these four methods:

Read Books. One of the easiest ways to achieve greater personal development is to read about others who have done the same. Learn what worked for them and what didn’t. See what systems or methods they used to make their goals a reality.

You can find books like these in any bookstore or online if you prefer ebooks. Just find one that interests you and see what you can learn from those who were there before you.

Take courses. Chances are good that there is a program on the market that addresses whichever area of personal development you want to attack. But, how do you pick the one right for you?

Decide if it meshes with your lifestyle. Find out everything you can to see if it’s something that can fit in your day to day life. For instance, if it’s a course that is online and requires four hours a week of work, do you have those four hours to spare?

Look for social proof. Talk to others that have tried it. Check out forums online and see what people are saying. A word of caution, not everything that you read is real. Some companies pay people to write false reviews. So, make sure you check out as many reviews as possible.

Affordability. Make sure you’re not emptying your bank account to take the course. It does you no good if you’re homeless because of it. If it’s a huge expense, maybe it’s something you need to budget for.

Hire a Life Coach. Sometimes you have to call in outside help to reach your personal development goals. If you have someone who is objective and can brainstorm with you, letting you solve your own problems with just a little bit of help, you may be further ahead than walking the path alone.

If you choose to hire a Life Coach, it does a couple of things for you. First, you’ve made a financial investment so you may take the process more seriously. Second, you have someone that will hold you accountable to do what you say you’re going to do. Third, they will help keep you motivated and encourage you when times get tough.

Follow the same guidelines as you would in trying to pick just the right course for you. Check out potential coaches, see what others say about them and decide how much money you have to invest in the process.

Meditate. If you’re constantly stressed, anxious or depressed, it’s hard to be your best. Not only does meditation help relieve you of these negative thoughts and emotions, it does so much more. It heightens your problem-solving skills and increases your insight and intuition. All of these are crucial to helping you achieve new personal levels.

It also changes certain brain and body chemicals that promote the change process. For instance, it boosts DHEA which causes a remarkable improvement in your sense of psychological and physical well-being. And, it increases your GABA which stabilizes your mood.

Take a few minutes each day and just be. Clear your mind and relax your body so it works for you in the process and not against you.

Whatever you decide is the right route for you, just remember that true change takes time. But if you keep at it, you will get there. And you’ll be a better person because of it.
