Personal development, at its basis, is anything that allows us to grow into an ordered life that is of our choosing. This is one of the most cherished aligned actions among self-improvement practitioners. There are some excellent methods available for achieving it. However, it is easier said than done. Here are a few hints and tips for personal development.
Clean the clutter from your life.
There is an excellent saying in the personal development field, “a tidy desk is a tidy mind”. Oftentimes, your outer environment is a reflection of the way you think and feel. Is your living or working space always cluttered? It’s important that you start to order your environment to reflect the ordered life you are building. Clear away unnecessary clutter from your surroundings. This may sound like a meaningless task but you are sending a very clear message to your subconscious mind that you intend to get organized. When you begin to organize your living and working environment it allows you to develop the basic skills needed for organizing your life.
Another thing to keep in mind regarding clutter is that it keeps energy from flowing. When energy can’t flow it becomes stagnant. And stagnant energy is dead energy. It’s just there doing nothing. The very best of the tips for personal development that you can do is to clear away the clutter so that energy can start moving.
Don’t be too set on achieving your aligned actions in exactly the manner you intend to.
A major factor in the non-attainment of aligned actions is the inability to restructure plans and change direction when circumstances dictate these should be done. Remain flexible. Things don’t always go the way we want them to. The Universe wants to give you what you desire, but if you aren’t specific, or if you are rigid in your specifications, then you may not be able to manifest those aligned actions. Be specific in your desires, but also be flexible. It’s a good practice to always be open to something better.
Don’t focus on the mistakes.
Everybody makes mistakes. But you don’t have to dwell on them. Simply analyze them and learn the lesson they are trying to teach you. By staying focused on your failures, problems, or toils you are actually creating more of them or at least keeping them in your experience. This is the Law of Attraction at its most basic. You attract more of what you think about. Focus on the solutions or at least focus on the fact “you are still in the game”. Consider any mistakes you’ve made as life lessons. Apply what you have learned from them and use them as references (of what not to do) in the future.
Make sure you follow through on your plans.
Persistence can accomplish things that nothing else can. How many times were you close to the end of the rainbow, and without even knowing how close you were, you quit? You may be someone who has drive at the start of a venture but finds your enthusiasm waning as you progress, lacking the motivation that is needed to “keep you keeping on” during times of hardship. Those who persist, especially in times like these, are those who always win!
