Understand yourself better
Personal development is a way to better understand yourself, your unique personality, character and talents, your strengths and weaknesses, as well as your aspirations and potentials. It is a way to become a better version of yourself in every aspect of your life.
If you think that you don’t have to work on yourself to develop your personality, then you can never grow. In order to grow, you need to learn and we all know that learning never stops. Your uniqueness can be enhanced with continuous learning and personal development which in turns allows you to thrive.
Because it is personal to a unique individual, consider how much time in your life that has been spent on learning how to improve your character. But if you are to excel at it, you need to have ambition to learn new things. It is that drive that will push you to find a way to learn them. Keeping an open mind allows you to learn just about anything you want.
The journey of personal development is unique to each individual. If you reflect on your journey in relation to some else’s, you will realise that the time spent is not the same. A growth mindset is key because it will allow you to be open to learning absolutely anything and If you are persistent, you will be to grow and eventually excel.
Employment requires certain skills, competences and capabilities which could have a direct impact on whether you get the job or not. In a scenario where the employer has to decide between two people who can both technically perform a particular role, the selection of one over the other will be influenced by the uniqueness in your characters and personalities.
