5 Ways to Encourage Personal Development

Look in the mirror. Say what you love about yourself. Maybe you love how you treat others, or how energetic you are, or how you look. Perhaps you love all of the above and more about yourself. If so, give yourself a round of applause! You have developed self confidence!

Now, look in the mirror again and say what you could improve about yourself. I know that for some people, self improvement and actually acknowledging how you can do better is just a way to lower your self confidence. I want to explain that this is not the case.

If we take the time to improve ourselves in a way that we love, then we will begin to love ourselves more and more, because we are becoming more of the person that we want to be.

Let’s discuss 5 Ways to Encourage Personal Development!

#1 – Acknowledge ways that you can improve.

Chances are, you have at least one thing that you could do better. Maybe it’s being kind, having a better diet, or improving something that you are already good at! Whatever it is that you want to improve in, you can do so! But the first thing that you need to do is think about what it actually is that you want to improve about yourself.

#2 – Walk towards your goals with tiny steps.

Goals that you make to develop yourself for the better take time to complete. Make sure that you reach the goal with small, tiny steps forward. The only way that you can put all the effort that you can into your goal is by being patient with yourself, and taking your time to reach it.

#3 – Improve your communication.

A huge skill for your personal development is learning how to communicate with others. Keep in mind that communication is more than speaking. It is also being willing and able to listen to what others have to say. Communication skills are required for many jobs on the market, so once you master communication, many doors could be available to you!

#4 Learn to be willing to take healthy risks.

Some things in life can be scary, and it’s normal to feel unsure about some things. Especially as a teenager. But part of life is learning how to be brave, and do things that might scare you or make you nervous. Conquering your fears can be another great step towards personal development.

Just remember, we also have common sense! If you are contemplating doing something that could hurt you in any way or that you don’t want to do, then it’s probably better not to do it!

#5 – Don’t beat yourself up when you make a mistake.


If you make a mistake, then that’s alright. To be honest, most of the time we are our own biggest critics. When you do something that is wrong, just apologize, do better in the future, and move on. Mistakes are what help us grow and learn. So if and when you make one, learn from it instead of beating yourself up.

I hope you all enjoyed learning about ways that we can improve ourselves for the better! Be sure to comment down below #selflove if you want to see more posts about self improvement in the future!

Also, keep in mind that self improvement is not improving yourself for others. It is impr0ving yourself for you! As long as you are content with yourself and what you are doing, then you are on the right track!

Have an amazing day everyone!
