Personal development is a process of understanding and developing oneself in order to achieve one’s fullest potential. It is essential in a person’s growth, success and fulfillment. People often give more importance to academic and professional achievement and neglect personal growth. Personal development involves investing in yourself so that you can manage yourself effectively, regardless of what life might bring in your way. It involves creating an action plan built on awareness, values, reflection and goal-setting for personal development within the context of a career, education, relationships or for self-improvement. In this way people can assess their skills and qualities. It allows individuals to consider their aim and set goals, both long and short term, to realize and maximize their potential.
Passion is what plays a strong role in shaping one’s personality in terms of career and growth. Choosing the right career and being successful in it depends on your level of passion in that chosen field to a large extent. If you love computers, but end up being a welder, then undoubtedly you’re going to feel sad both at work and in life. Rather, if you choose a career in computers like a software programmer, etc you are more likely to feel on top of the world, and this happiness trumps all aspects of your life. In short, passion can be a much more powerful motivator as compared to other financial and non-financial incentives. It is what drives us to develop ourselves wholly. It is the powerful feeling of enthusiasm we all have inside of us. We are all enthusiastic and passionate about something, whether its finance, food or a sport. When we can combine that enthusiasm with our work, we are setting ourselves up well for achieving true success.
Passion is a feeling that moves you to concentrate in a field because you find happiness in doing it. This passion can be different for every person which can be anything from cooking to sculpting, and everything in between. There are many examples of people who have achieved great success simply because their driving force for work was their passion. A case in point was Steve Jobs, the founder and ex - CEO of Apple Inc. Steve Jobs was one of the most successful entrepreneurs, and he attributed much of his success to his passion for technology. He believed in doing what he loved, and success was a by-product of following this passion and not the end by itself. Some other examples also include Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Richard McDonald, Kevin Plank, Walt Disney, Dr.Seuss and Jim Koch. For each of these successful entrepreneurs, passion has been their driving force which made them reach to such great heights.
If you want to see similar success, you need to figure out your passion. Next, set up your personal goals and chart out a roadmap to achieve your ambitions. The difference between who you are today and who you want to be tomorrow, is what you do today. You have the strength, the passion and the patience to achieve your ambitions, your goals and your dreams. All you have to do is TRY. Be ambitious, set goals, not because you are ungrateful of what you have but because you are happy about who you are. Enjoy the experience of rising above your perceived limitations and discover new levels of your capabilities. Setting goals depends on the values we hold and setting goals helps us work towards achieving our visions.
Do not be afraid of letting the world know what your purpose is. Find your dream and believe in it. When you believe in your dream and realise that you are deserving and capable. No one can stop you from achieving it. Dreams will come true if you have the courage to pursue them. No one else can achieve your goals for you, it’s you who alone can do it. Set a goal so big that it excites you and scares you at the same time.
If you want to realize your dreams you have to wake up and follow our heart, passion, desires and play around positive thinking at all times.
Starting today make the decision to try, don’t let the world or your fears hold you back any longer from realizing the accomplishment of your dreams.
Keep working towards it, and you’re sure to be successful.
