What does personal growth mean to you? The key word to focus on is the word personal and should be based upon the individual’s interests and goals for their own growth. There are many different ways a person could invest in themself for personal growth, but make sure you know what it is that motivates you before spending money on products, classes and programs.
Many people spend their free time by entertaining themselves to fill in mind numbing activities such as watching t.v., playing video games or just doing nothing. Now these activities are not bad, but if all you do is play video games all day and not balance your life with personal growth as the years pass, you will have accomplished little but spend countless hours of entertaining yourself. I am not saying/telling everyone to stop playing video games, but to have balance in your life and to invest in your own personal growth.
One of my focused areas of development is in marketing and for me to gain knowledge in this area, I seek out programs that offer seminars and classes. I am currently registered for a seminar that will provide me with an official certificate so I can add it to my resume.
Now these developmental activities come at a cost, but when you think about it, it is an investment in yourself and your personal self interest. Invest in yourself and grow with your personal interests as the deciding factor. In my past experiences, I have never regretted spending money on myself to develop myself. Do a search and find some classess, certificate programs, continuing education classes or community classes to learn what you have always wanted to know or pick up a new skill.
