It is important to maximize your personal development in the workplace and you will be surprised at the number of aspects that you can improve. You can fill the gaps in your knowledge, improve existing skills or learn new ones. You may want to focus on improving your health and fitness, improving your quality of life, or your work-life balance. Or maybe you are looking to fight your happiness, your self-awareness or your self-esteem. Whatever you choose to do, the business benefits of personal development will be staggering.
After you have assessed yourself to determine the weaknesses you want to focus on, you can begin to put in place strategies to address these personal development needs. Here are a few that really work.
WE COLLECT THIS LIST OF MOST SUCCESSFUL 11 STRATEGIES FOR WOMEN WHO WANT TO TANGIBLE IMPROVEMENTS TO THEIR LIVES THIS YEAR.
1. Set clear goals and review them
It is important to set goals. They help you focus and prioritize your time. In our life working groups, women review their goals once a month. This is crucial because your goals may change during the year. Assess whether the signposts you defined in January are still relevant in June.
2. Share your goals with others
Research shows that people who regularly write down their goals, share them with others and report to them are much more likely to achieve them. Don’t let shame hold you back! It doesn’t matter if you don’t reach your goals exactly as you had imagined. Making progress every day is precious in itself.
3. Have a reality check
Are your goals authentic to you or something you think you should achieve? We sometimes choose goals based on the expectations of others. Try to answer the question: what is really important to me?
4. Spend some time
Women who successfully transform their lives strive to establish daily habits that support their goals. Regularly allocate small periods of time to develop: 15 minutes a day to exercise, read and eat healthily. Make them your priorities, your “non-negotiable” and don’t let the priorities of others push you out of the way.
5. Let go
You can’t keep adding new things to your schedule if you don’t clean up and make room for your dreams. It is time to eliminate negativity from your life. We women generally spend far too much time managing the emotions and actions of others. Let go of the need to control everything. It releases a huge amount of energy to work on our own emotions and actions.
6. Soul time
How can we live more deeply if we never spend time with ourselves? If you want to follow your heart and find your vocation in life, it is time to spend more time alone. Allow your deepest desires to emerge and allow regular time for just being – forest walks, meditation, and journaling.
7. Pick a key theme
Choose a theme or two for the year. What areas of your life do you want to focus on? Is this the year you learn to say “no”? Or maybe this is the year you try new things and say “yes” to things that scare you? Choose a word like “courage” or “get out of the comfort zone” or “integrity” and let it guide you throughout the year.
8. Take small steps
Success depends much more on small, consistent steps than big, crazy steps of faith. From time to time, a little help is needed, but generally, women who succeed on a large scale are those who are 100% committed to the process and who trust their journey on a daily basis.
9. Help others
To open yourself to success, you need to open your emotions and your “energy” to the positive connections around you. Surround yourself and be a full part of a united tribe. Successful women are those who offer help without asking for a reward. They know it’s like planting seeds. Their positivity will increase and one day they will receive help from others with the same ease as they give them.
Another way to create positivity and good vibes is to celebrate your little victories. The right vibrations always attract more success and soon you will start a snowball effect of success and abundance!
11. Start now
The women who hit the cover of the ball are the ones who stop analyzing and procrastinating their ideas and goals and just start. Try to think of the smallest possible step you can take NOW that is safe. And do it immediately.
