Accelerating your personal growth is simple

People, interested in self-improvement and personal growth, are always searching for more ways to become better. They are seeking for learning new skills, getting more knowledge, meeting new people. In this article, we’d like to give some more practical advice that allows everyone speed up their personal growth.

1.Doing what your peers do not

This advice should be used for you both in your personal life and in your career. Becoming better than others may often doing something more than the others. Expanding your range of responsibilities, taking more risks and doing more than your colleagues leads to growing yourself as a person and as a professional.

2.Contacting the best people in your field

Many people don’t like talking to or working with those, who are better, smarter and more experienced. They simply don’t like showing their incompetency and lack of knowledge.

But it’s a common mistake.

Communicating with those, who are better than you in something, allows getting their experience, learning what they know and coming to their level. That’s why it’s the only way for effective personal growth.

3.Working for perspective, not for money

Everyone has a choice in his own field, whether to have a highly-paid or a perspective job. For growing yourself you should pick the second one. It will charge you with more skills and knowledge so that you’ll get money in the future as well.

Growing yourself is the only way you can become successful in the future. So, use it!

Tips on how to stay organized (Part 1)

One of the most common problem for many people is self-organization. Humans are not often organized enough, in order to keep their things going in a proper way. This may cause several problems in our everyday life.

We’d like to introduce an article with special organizational tips for those, who have problems with this in their everyday life. So, let’s start from the very beginning!

1.Put all things in their places

Your everyday life may become a real mess, if you don’t follow this rule. It’s simple enough, to be followed even by kid – but many adults miss it as well. Put everything in its place. Whether it’s spoon or a T-shirt – it must be placed in order, not just anywhere you want. It will make your house cleaner and easier to live in.

2.To-Do lists may help you

Our memory is not perfect, though we need so many things to remember on a regular basis! The solution, however, is simple – use ‘To-Do’ lists! It can be either a paper sheet for all of the tasks you need; or a smartphone application with your schedule – it depends on you, what is the most convenient way for you to organize it. But such an approach will allow you to get rid of forgotten meetings and tasks!

3.Write your thoughts

Sometimes our new ideas appear too fast, in order to be remembered by us. We just forget it and it goes away forever. The only solution for this is writing it down. In this case, you need some notebook and a pencil – and you automatically get rich source of your ideas in your hands.

Paying attention to facts, not stories, is important

The humans are emotional creatures. We are led by the emotions we feel, making some mistakes, without a proper thinking – why have we done this?. That’s the reason of many losses in our life.

Another reason for our failures is listening to the stories, to the emotions they bring, but not to the real facts. Let’s bring an example.

Imagine, that you are having an ordinary job, dreaming to have your business once in the future. Sometimes you even talk to your friends about this, who can tell that it’s risky, it’s dangerous for your family budget, it’s senseless, if you have a well-paid job. That’s what leaves you in your comfort zone and what, probably, doesn’t allow you to leave your job and start something new. It happens when you pay attention to the emotions you feel.

However, there is another side of this situation. You can not listen to the emotions of other people. You should try to listen to the facts. And they may vary.

Analyzing facts, you can understand, that sometimes refusing to take risks is much more dangerous. Sometimes living in your comfort zone is much more dangerous as well. And refusing starting bringing your dreams into life is also not the way you should go.

Emotions are good for your personal life. Express them, when you say that you love your friends, your girlfriend (or boyfriend), you children and parents. But don’t listen to the emotions when you make a decision. Only the facts must be important for you. So that if you have any chances to win – you should try, no matter how scared you are.
