What is personal development?
Personal development is the process of learning about yourself in order to reach your potential. It’s important to consider your skills and what you are aiming to achieve – setting yourself personal goals with the intention of improving your quality of life, and helping you to be the person you aspire to be.
Personal development can involve many aspects of your life including:
- social interaction
- emotional needs
- academic needs
- physical / exercise
It’s called personal development because it’s personal to you:
- You Set the goals
- You set the time scale to reach your goals
- You set the area of your life you want to develop
