What Is Personal Development?

Personal Development | September 8, 2017 | By

“Personal development covers activities that improve awareness and identity, develop talents and potential, build human capital and facilitate employability, enhance the quality of life and contribute to the realization of dreams and aspirations. Personal development takes place over the course of a person’s entire life.” Indeed, that’s a great meaning of personal development from Wikipedia but I believe it’s a lot more than that.

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are we tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson

Personal development is about discovering you, nurturing yourself and transforming yourself into the person you are meant to be. Ordinarily humans are meant to stand upright and walk. A baby starts by crawling, and then will move to a standing position by herself/himself before staggering to walk. That’s exactly what personal development is, a gradual process of becoming the best version of you. In this constantly evolving world, to become successful, live your dream, and achieve bigger things can be quite the challenge. But did you know that it actually is very possible and everything you need to achieve your dreams is already in you!
