Personal Growth

Updated: Dec 29, 2020

Personal growth – how do you share your journey with others?

Reaching a new level in your personal growth is both exciting and satisfying. And if it’s helped you to overcome certain challenges, it’s tempting to want to share your newfound knowledge with others. Yet, do you ever get frustrated because you think others aren’t listening? And end up feeling pissed off because no matter how many times you explain yourself, they simply don’t get it?


If you’re on a self-development journey and want to connect with others at a different level than before – prepare to be disappointed. We’re all at different stages of personal growth and your journey is unique to you. And yes, I get that it can be irksome when others are unable to listen and hold space for your ideas. Yet equally perhaps you aren’t ready to hear what they have to say.


Your personal growth is exactly that.


Your. Personal. Growth.


Not theirs or anybody else’s.


If you find that others aren’t open to the new insights you’ve gained, then no sweat. It’s not up to you to explain yourself. But it is up to you to understand that what works for you, and is part of your self-development, isn’t necessarily right for them. Or the timing is off for them to take what you say on board. And that’s okay.


Learn to hold your own counsel, instead of turning yourself inside out trying to explain yourself.

Quietly going about improving your mindset on your own, without the need to broadcast it, is a superpower!

My latest read – it’s fabulous! Read on… In this inspiring, empowering book, Jay Shetty draws on his time as a monk in the Vedic tradition to show us how we can clear the roadblocks to our potential and power. Drawing on ancient wisdom and his own rich experiences in the ashram, Think Like a Monk reveals how to overcome negative thoughts and habits, and access the calm and purpose that lie within all of us. The lessons monks learn are profound but often abstract. Shetty transforms them into advice and exercises we can all apply to reduce stress, improve focus, improve relationships, identify our hidden abilities, increase self-discipline and give the gifts we find in ourselves to the world. Shetty proves that everyone can and should think like a monk. Click on the link below: Think Like a Monk: The secret of how to harness the power of positivity and be happy now – Jay Shetty



Another great read – I think I have a ‘mind crush’ on this guy’s take on personal development. Read on… There are times when life feels like it has you cornered: financial difficulties, relationship issues, work problems, all of the above. Every one of us, at one time or another, will have to face up to the challenges that come our way. And there are two ways of meeting them: negatively, where blame is the answer, where other people are at fault, where you haven’t been treated fairly. Or positively, where you own the situation, learn and grow from it, and become a better person at the end of it. This book will not tell you who to be, where you should live, or what job you should do. That’s up to you. What this book is for, however, is to give you the tools you need to become the best possible version of yourself, to own who and what you are, and to live your life with Zero Negativity.
