Young Adults - Why Personal Development?
A famous quote from a Chinese sage, Lao Tzu, says that while knowing others may be intelligence, but knowing oneself is true wisdom.
Similarly, mastering others may be strength, but mastering one's own self is true power. The quote, included in the sage's ancient compilation of Chinese classic text "TAO TE CHING" has been the inspiration of several individuals from over the world - poets, writers, painters, executives, priests, even politicians.
It has also been a major source of inspiration for Francois Janse van Rensburg – founder and owner of Let's-Live Coaching. Consequently, Let's-Live Coaching is home to some of the most passionate Life Coaches today, who are willing to provide you with all the guidance and support you may need to know and master your own self.
The journey towards true wisdom and power begins with a simple commitment – commitment towards continuous improvement, based on your own evaluations of your aspirations, skills and goals. This focus towards continuously evolving and improving is called Personal-Development. Let us clarify the concept and its utility with the help of three questions that we get asked the most about Personal-Development.
WHAT IS PERSONAL-DEVELOPMENT? HOW DO YOU DEFINE IT?
Personal-Development is an umbrella term that encompasses
all techniques used for improving a person's life.
Any positive change you make
in your career, relationships, health, education, productivity,
academic/extra-curricular performance, is essentially
the result of Personal-Development.
Typical techniques include assessment of
the self, discovering inherent motivation,
over-arching aspirations, self-actualization, goal setting,
time-management, changing habits,
learning new skills, developing talent/knowledge
all with the aim of fulfilling the aspirations.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO ENGAGE IN PERSONAL-DEVELOPMENT?
Now is the best time! With regards to developing your own self,
there is no such thing as "TOO SOON" or "TOO LATE".While the early birds will
definitely enjoy the benefits associated with an early start, you can
begin working on Personal-Development whenever you
feel the need to evolve.
Personal-Development will work its wonders equally well
for senior executives in their 50s as it will on
young-adults in their 20s.Personal-Development is more
than just a method to reach your career goals.
It is a method of increasing self-awareness,
building self-appreciation and finding genuine happiness and satisfaction
from life and each day is a good day to begin.
HOW CAN YOUNG ADULTS BENEFIT FROM PERSONAL-DEVELOPMENT?
Personal-Development for young adults has far reaching
benefits that stay with them for the rest of their lives.
Young adults must differentiate the right choices from
the wrong between a myriad of options related
to higher studies, career paths and relationships.
And how well they make the distinction shapes how well
they fare in their future endeavours.
At their relatively inexperienced age, it is common
for the lines between right and wrong to get blurred.
Without the proper guidance, young people may
take decisions and act on them, under pressure from peers,
parents, media-influence and a host of other external influences.
If there is one thing that can help young adults – Personal-Development it is. Benefits include -
- Improved knowledge of the self–inner motivations, potentials, fears, insecurities, dreams and aspirations.
- Improved time management, goal setting, self-assessment and self-improvement,
- Increased knowledge, skills and talents, more focus, higher productivity.
- Increased clarity about personal identity, purpose in life and a clearer sense of direction.
- Improved satisfaction, higher quality of life.
