Two Important Self Development Tools

Personal development and self development tools are necessary for self improvement, and to steer your life in the direction you want it to go.

Let’s say, for example, that you’re on a dull life journey, and notice that something is not quite right. You rub your eyes and see for the first time that you’re in a kayak flowing down the river of life without oars. The river has complete control over where and how fast you are moving. You are unaware of your destination and keep moving through the rapids of life.

Are you feeling stuck, frustrated and/or helpless in life?

You’ll need a good set of oars to steer your life in the right direction.

So, where do you want to go? What exactly do you want to create in your life?

If you’ve been flowing down the river without oars for many years and you might not know what you truly desire. So, let’s tap into your passion and excitement.

Because life isn’t fun without it.

What do you love in life? What makes you excited? And what are you most passionate about?

Answer these questions and you’ll have a fair idea of what you want to create. Follow your passion and your life will unfold. You’ll not only feel happier and more satisfied but you’ll also feel stronger and more confident with the rips and tides that come your way.

Okay, so you know where you’re going now. Write it down in detail. Describe to yourself how you would feel when you’ve reached your goal. Who would be there to support you while you’re on your journey, and when you’ve become successful achieving your dreams? What does your environment look like?  And what resources, tools and techniques did you use to get there?

Let’s consider your personal development tools.

You’ll need a good set of oars to get you where you’re going. Self development and personal development techniques may have eluded you up until this point, but now you’ve got something special in mind to create. It’s time to toss out the old sabotaging patterns that you learned during your childhood or past experiences. These are outdated and hindering you from achieving what you really want in life. Let’s say for instance you’ve got this repetitive thought pattern that tells you, “I’m not good enough.” Or “I can’t…..” or “There’s no way I can do that”. You can’t make positive changes in life with those thoughts in your mind. Or can you?

Your thoughts are not truth. They do not dictate what happens in your life unless you agree to them as your truth.  If you notice this type of  thought in your mind, simply say to yourself “No, these are not the thoughts that will help me create my life as I want it to be,” and then choose thoughts that will.

Important Oar #1 – Choose thoughts that will take you where you want to go.

To choose a new thought is as easy at turning on a light switch. And so you have Oar #1, but you need two personal development oars to successfully steer you through the river of life.

Necessary Oar #2 – Be committed.

When you pick-up this second oar you know in your heart and mind that you are dedicated to steering yourself down the river of life towards a life you want. No matter what obstacles come your way you are committed to learning how to manoeuver around them. For instance, if you’re goals require you to learn new skills, gain experience or develop a certain personality trait – you do it. You might observe others who are successful doing what you want to achieve. You learn from them and grow. When you doubt yourself, you laugh and keep moving and keep changing.  If the kayak tips over, you get back in it and confidently steer yourself to your chosen destination.

Be committed to personal development and self development. Choose your destination and pick up your oars. Be committed to growing and changing. Steer your life in the direction you want it to go.
