                                 perspective on other peoples lives while making your own life

                                  Start educating yourself about the world and not just your
country. A good topic for discussion is relating different countries to your own. When you talk
about the knowledge you know of different countries other people become more interested in just
how educated you are, so take some time to learn about all cultures.

Replace negative thoughts with ones that are more positive or balanced. Keep a journal of
negative thoughts and what triggers them. When you are in a better mood, go over your journal
and see if the negative thoughts you had were necessary and how you can change the way you
viewed them at the time.

We all know how easy it is to say your going to change something about yourself and it never
happens. It is important that you find some niche that will let you surpass the phase of just saying
you want to change. Their has to be something that can convince you, something that will click in
your mind, that will let you help yourself!

smaller goals that are easier to reach. For instance, if want to get organized you may find it

another goal. It's easy to get overwhelmed. So, make your goals moderate and stay motivated.

grow when we're uncomfortable.

Work on the skills that you already possess. Determine what you do well and carefully hone that
skill. Fight the tendency to pursue skills you don't already possess as this will decrease your
focus. Working to better those skills can greatly increase your personal development satisfaction.

Keep a diary or journal. It will be very cathartic to be able to put what you are feeling down on
paper. Keeping things locked up and having thoughts running through your head can really take
a toll on you. Just letting it all out on paper will allow you to release those thoughts without
having to involve someone else.

personal development. Identifying the areas of your life you wish to change is the cornerstone of
effective personal development, whether it is aspects of your career or parts of your personal life.

If you find yourself at the point of a complete emotional meltdown, whether it is sadness, anger or
what have you, stop and do not say a word. Sit down with a notebook or journal and write down
the things that you want to say at that particular point. It will help you express your feelings
without causing further conflict.

Learning a new skill is a great way to stretch yourself and improve the quality of your character.
What's more, perfecting a hobby, technical skill or artistic form may be challenging at first, but if
you master it, you will gain a sense of accomplishment, purpose and enjoyment. What's more,
you add to your pool of leisure activities and make yourself a more rounded human being.

Be someone that people want to come to for information and ideas. You do not want to always be
the one asking questions. This will provide you room to ask questions when you have them. A
two way relationship with peers is better than having to go down a one way street.

Positive affirmations can be a powerful tool for your personal development, but not if you speak
them by rote, without engagement or interest. Always get emotionally involved when you repeat
your affirmations to yourself. When you are repeating your affirmations, invest your full attention
in them and concentrate on building up positive feelings.

then keep doing it. If you find that something doesn't work for you, personally, don't worry,
