Understanding – Forgiveness – Growth
Happiness, self-development and successful relationships are connected
Personal development, or development of self, improves awareness and identity, develop talents and potential, builds human capital, facilitates employability, enhances quality of life and contributes to the realization of dreams and aspirations.
The concept is not limited to self-help but includes formal and informal activities for developing others in roles such as teacher, guide, counselor, manager, life coach or mentor. See, Personal Development.
Self development and self-actualization are essential underpinnings to the creation of joyful and healthy relationships. It is through self development that we build confidence, learn to love ourselves more deeply and elevate our self-esteem.
The LivingSingleLivingWell growing collection of books and articles on personal growth, checklists, and timely personal stories illuminate our continual need for stretching our minds as we do our physical body. Enjoy!
