Personal development is the process of undertaking or participating in activities that are aimed at building or improving an individual’s mind or skills in a particular area or areas. Examples of such activities can include reading motivational or business books, participating in educational workshops such as business seminars and seeking mentorship from already established individuals in specific fields. Engaging in personal development can result in a number of advantages for the person seeking it which will put them in a better position to become overally more successful in pursuing their business goals. In this blog, I am going to share two of such benefits.
Benefit number one of personal development is improved mental health/self esteem.
Mental health is a crucial yet often overlooked factor in the effectiveness of a human in any given task be it a physical job or a mental job. Mental health in short refers to the ability to handle one`s emotions and the way in which a person perceives them self. Personal development can be helpful in assisting a person to manage better their personal life which always needs to be well balanced with their business life as the two always co-exist. Factors such as stress and relationships in life are addressed in many self help books and managing these results in a more stable individual who can think and act more rationally.
Benefit number two of personal development is an improvement in skills.
Engaging in personal development helps in boosting a person`s skill level. For example if you realize that your public speaking skills are weak, you can seek the help of a public speaking coach who can show you your weaknesses and give advice on the steps you can take to improve yourself. This will make you more competent and allow you to express yourself better which can result in improved networking with other likeminded people and therefore more business.
In conclusion on personal development
In conclusion, personal development is well worth it for anybody who is seeking to become a better business person and investing in it will be time well spent for anyone who is serious about shaping themselves into the best possible version of themselves. I would be happy to know how personal development has helped you in your own area of specialization.Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in
