                                           A great way to self help your depression is to help
                                           others by volunteering. Many people who are
depressed end up feeling sorry for themselves, but lending a helping hand will give you
perspective on other peoples lives while making your own life feel more fulfilled. It is also a great
way to meet new people.

If you find yourself more susceptible than usual to negative thoughts and critical observations,
look to your social circle for clues. You may discover that your peers are contributing to a highly
pessimistic and caustic outlook, and that you are allowing these people to actively shape your
own unhappiness. Try to surround yourself with positive, nurturing people who can lead by
example.

Knowing does not mean understanding. A knowledgable person can even seem overbearing
and pompous. If you are going to take the time to seek knowledge, also take the time to learn
knowledge. Anyone can spout facts and data from memory, however, taking the time to
understand and research the depth of the subject creates wisdom.

A lot of personal development can come from improving your fitness as well as your mind. Often
these two things go hand in hand as it takes an uncluttered mind to better yourself physically. If
you are interested in this option then running is a great starting place for beginners.

Wean yourself off of the caffeine. Step away from the energy drinks, coffee, and soda. You will
find that it is easier for you to keep your thoughts straight and sleep better at night. It may take
some time to get over the withdrawl symptoms, but once they are gone you will feel great.

Take multiple vacations per year, even if they are small 3 to 4 day vacations over a weekend. Life
is too terribly short to waste all of your days working for someone else. Make sure to spend time
with your friends and family. This isn't like a video game, you really only have one life, so use it
wisely.

If you want to better yourself, you should aim to always be humble. Avoid being arrogant because
If you want to better yourself, you should aim to always be humble. Avoid being arrogant because
when you are arrogant, you are close-minded about anything new. Humility means that you are
proud of your accomplishments, but you always give credit where it is due, and you always keep
your mind open. Being open-minded is the key to improving yourself.

Visualization can help you reach your personal development goals. There are many techniques
and some research and experimentation is required. In general you will want to spend some time
daily thinking quietly about your goals and what it will be like to attain them. Frequent
visualization of a goal will help you integrate it as a reality in your mind and will help you create
the new thoughts and behaviors required to achieve the goal.

Use mistakes as growing points. Everyone is going to make mistakes from time to time, whether
serious or very minor. Either way you go, you have to understand that these mistakes are
sometimes inevitable, and the best thing you can do is learn and grow from these mistakes, using
them to propel yourself forward instead of letting them hold you back in frustration and
discouragement.

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.

One of the best ways to get an accurate picture of yourself and to learn wisdom is through serving
others. Whether you enjoy volunteering at a homeless shelter, helping kids at your church or
cleaning up the environment, service projects can strengthen your sense of purpose and your
connection to your fellow human beings.

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.

You should feel better after reading those tips when it comes to personal development. That was
a lot to think and read through, but at least, you should have an idea of what to do and where to
begin with your personal development. Besides, you can always come back to this list.
