What is personal growth?
Most of us want to be better human beings, to achieve our potential and do more in, and for the world. Personal growth means exploring yourself, realising your strengths and limitations, finding out about the world and leaving your comfort zone. It involves your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual sides, and it never stops. Whatever your age, you can continue to learn new things, become wiser and deeper. The trick is getting going. Here’s how you can spark personal growth.
Have some therapy
Did you know that people don’t have counseling just because they feel depressed or have some other problem? They also do it to find out about themselves. The experience of having yourself reflected back at you can awaken you to all sorts of knowledge. It can make you realise why you do certain things and empower you to change them. Counseling can begin with one of our expert Readers at TheCircle, so why not start your journey to personal growth by putting in a call today?
Do you realise you only have a day to live? It isn’t tomorrow and it isn’t yesterday – it’s today! So put everything into the day, hour, moment that you have and be as completely immersed in the here-and-now as you can be. In this way the quality of your experiences will be so much more intense, your stress will dissolve and your performance in just about anything will improve considerably.
Identify your core values
What truly matters? What motivates you? What do you believe? You may need to explore the world before you can be sure of these, and even your ‘core values’ can evolve, as you go through life. The point is to be true to yourself. This is a quest – it’s about being open and aware, it’s not something that you can think through and sort, in your head.
Look after your biody
Healthy personal growth starts with the physical being. Did you know that if your digestive system isn’t working properly it will affect your brain, and your mood? If you’re having too much sugar you may have candida, which causes anxiety. Clean up your diet with masses of fresh fruit and veg, high-grade protein and good fats. Commit to a regular exercise routine and get out into nature. Works wonders – try it!
Be open to new experience
How can you grow as a person if you do the same thing 24/7? New experiences are more than just fun – they open your eyes, bring you fresh stimulation and enable you to learn about yourself. Even a new hobby will help. So if you’re usually a bit of a stick-in-the-mud, try saying ‘yes’ a bit more and see where it leads.
Meet new people
It’s great being with your familiar crew, but they will tend to hang out in the same places, do and say the same things – and, most of all, see you in the same old way. Have the courage to be with different types, maybe from another culture, or people who may not understand you. This will help you grow, and old friends will still be there, as a back-up.
Seek out people and situations that make you laugh, naturally. A burst of laughter sends all sorts of feel-good hormones around your brain and body, helping you to see everything in a much better light.
Achieving personal growth can be fun but it needs commitment. Don’t expect it to happen in a flash. Take your first steps with a couple of the above suggestions, and see how you go. Of course you’ll do better with some support. At TheCircle you can always contact a Psychic or Medium who can help you.
