Focus on Personal Growth

By Nellmari

Personal growth and development are correlated with greater happiness. We all want to be happy and spend our time doing what brings joy and a sense of accomplishment to our lives. Take a moment out of your daily routine to reflect on your accomplishments and how they have contributed to your personal growth. Are you constantly doing something to fulfill someone else’s dream? Or are you on a stand still not knowing what your next step should be? It’s time to turn the focus on you and start a self-check.

There are six essential areas that contribute to your personal growth. Take your time and evaluate each area. Your health and wellness, financial status, professional (business, career), personal relationships (family and friends), spiritual and personal development.

As with the purpose of life, try the following exercises to identify the aspects of personal growth that are most important to you.

  1. On one page create two columns. On one side, write a list of all your achievements in the different categories in the last twelve months. On the other side, write about how these achievements have contributed to your personal growth.
  2. On another page you have a list of those achievements that were heavy and left you with little or no satisfaction. Write about how these achievements have contributed to your personal growth.

As we work on personal growth, we can determine which area is weak and begin our focus on improving. We all go through seasons in our lives that we focus on one area more than another, but to return to a life of balance we must want to improve. 

After writing the list we can determine goals and help you improve your weaknesses. Don’t forget to say a prayer so that God can bring to mind all your accomplishments and you can honestly determine which area of your life need improvement. Let’s get started!


For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. – Jeremiah 29:11
