Develop a personal development
plan that works for you
If you want to change the person you are on the inside you must develop a personal development plan, keep a personal development journal and read personal development books.
These tools will help you decide where you want to go in your life. They will help you create a plan for your life.
If you fail to plan, your planning to fail as Winston Churchill once said. And besides you can't hit a target you can't see. Especially if you don't even know where it's at or in what direction to aim.
By having a plan you'll gain clarity, an understanding of why you want something, and a defined compass to take you to your end result.
Here's my suggested personal development plan example.
Define your goals - write down all the things you want to be, do and have. And don't edit this list - at least not yet anyway. This will help you get all that stuff in your head down on paper where it belongs.
Everything from wants to wishes, needs to desires need to be in writing. Success leaves trails. Those trails are in words. Accomplish great things in your life and then leave your path behind for others to follow.
personal development journal
to record everything about your life. Your feelings, ideas, thoughts, frustrations, accomplishment, failures and most importantly lessons learned.
This is the most valuable information you could ever have on your personal development journey. You can use these writings as a way to track your progress.
And besides it's fun and interesting to read what you thought about things a year from ago or even better 10 years ago. But you'll also see how far you've come on your journey.
