Personal Development Strategies Which You Must Implement to Enhance Your Personal and Professional Life
If you look at nature, you will see petals developing, flowers opening to the sun, leaves unfurling – everywhere there is change, movement, growth. And then, when the leaves drop from the trees in Autumn, they lay on the ground and start to deteriorate. In nature, what’s not growing is decomposing. And the same goes for you, too. Are you growing or feeling stale in your personal life? In your professional life? And if you suspect you might be stagnating, how do you move into growth?
The secret is personal development. It’s what helps us move from stagnation to success, from idling to growth. Whether you want to create change in your life or business, personal development is the key. But how does one “do” personal development?
Maybe you’re a PD junkie, or maybe you’re just starting to question your life direction. Either way, you might want to find a life coach in Melbourne to assist you along your journey. A life and business coach has the knowledge and experience to guide you towards finding your own personal insights to fuel your growth. With the support of a personal life coach, change can occur as you embrace the unknown and allow growth to bloom. Below, we will cover some basic personal development strategies for you to consider.
Be the Uncarved Block
As a personal life coach, I do not force any particular religion or spiritual approach onto my clients. But sometimes introducing ideas from a range of traditions can help a client find their own way. The idea of the uncarved block has origins in Taoism (they call it “Pu”), and describes the natural condition of a person before the arising of life experience. This state transcends dualistic oppositions of right/wrong, good/bad, black/white, etc. Therefore it is a place of unity which aligns a person with the Tao, the flow of life.
There are many applications and implications of this theory for modern times. For example, you might be looking to find a life coach in Melbourne because you want to simplify your life and be more present with your family. Letting go of excess complications and seeking a kind of purity and simplicity is reverting back to Pu. Another way in which Pu can be a good example to us in terms of personal development is for overcoming resistance. Instead of battling and pushing, Pu teaches us to let go, surrender and go with the flow with life and to choose another state instead.
Change with Kaizen
Kaizen is a concept coined by Tony Robbins for continuous improvement. It’s more like a mindset rather than a one-off action. It’s a way of looking at your life – perhaps with the help of a life and business coach – and identifying areas that need work, and then making tiny incremental inches of progress every day towards your goals. Is there a small action you can take today to get toward your business or life goals? How can you build on that small action day by day? If you take them consistently, you are bound to make progress. That’s my experience as a personal life coach with many people over the years.
Be Grateful & Forgive
Being grateful and forgiving are two very powerful actions that you can take to improve your life. Of anything I can suggest as a life and business coach, these two are often sniffed at and dismissed as less important because they’re slightly less tangible. But don’t make this mistake! I suggest these things because they work. Pure and simple. Your emotional health will affect your results both in your personal life and in your business life. So, if you have resistance to your current standing in life, do a gratitude list every night before you go to bed. You should also forgive anyone you have resentments against, whether they’re still in your life or are part of your history. Doing these simple actions will provide you with emotional freedom and a clear mind with which to move forward in business and life.
