Ever since we are born our every action is consciously or subconsciously the result of trying to make our lives better than before. Growing is not just a word associated with physical growth. It has more to do with the mind. Self-growth or self-development is needed not just to solve work-related issues. It goes deeper than that. It helps you become the best version of yourself. Once you reach that stage, it is easier to find peace within and be happy with your present situation.

Inculcating a few good habits can also help in personal growth. We all have it in us to be the best, just that we need some grooming by a mentor like David Michigan. Here are a few habits that you can start practising from today.

  • Have a vision or a goal: Without a goal, life can be aimless. However, do not write down that being successful is your goal, instead have a vision in your mind and try to create a path to walk towards it.
  • Create small goals and daily routine: Having a vision is great , but set smaller goals within realistic time period for yourself. Once you achieve them reward yourself too.
  • Take decisions wisely: Being a great decision maker might very well determine your future. So take your decisions wisely. Analyze whether you have been taking the right track so far and if it has helped you come closer to your ultimate goal.
  • Embrace your faults: Embracing your faults or imperfections is part of the deal. Do not get demotivated by them. Instead, accept them. When you know your shortcoming you will understand your options better, and can take better decisions too.

Finally, have fun in the whole process. Do not take life too seriously. Enjoy every moment, take failure as a learning experience, and get up each time.
