30 Personal Development Ideas

Before I give you the list of ideas, I want to share why personal development is so important.  You know, just in case you didn’t already know!

Personal development is important because you want to grow as a person.  You want to learn new skills, you want to check- in/reflect, look at yourself in the mirror and ask yourself am I really where I want to be in life?  If not, these ideas can help you grow.  They can help you grow personally, spiritually, career wise.  It’s really up to you on where you want to grow.  One aspect of your life might be more important, to you, than another.  That’s okay. In a couple of months that might change.  Especially as you grow and develop the things you’re interested in now. 

I started personal development thinking that it would only help my corporate career.  Little did I know that I also grew spiritually, emotionally and mentally.  Consciously working on yourself is one of the most important things we can do this life! There isn’t another way to transform. Let alone be open to healing!

Let’s get the ideas rolling!
