The secret to effective personal growth

Growth comes when you choose to grow. It is a personal choice and only becomes effective if your inner self is ready to get out of its comfort zone.  Sure, it is not easy. It takes a lot of patience, practice and reconditioning of the mind from the old ways to the new ways.

 

However, growth can be stunted if there is no room for  this powerful tool: quietness. Sometimes the mind gets so cluttered that making the right decision is influenced by the ‘clutter’ occupying the brain.  And a lot of times making one bad decision is all it takes to stall growth and delay one’s growth process.

 

This is why UNPLUGGING every time it is possible is one of the most effective secrets to personal growth. It is not easy especially with living with the kind of schedule and the environment where most people are – but it is doable. Successful people find time even with their schedule to ‘settle themselves’; to find quietness in their lives; to put a brake on their fast paced life and slow down; they unwind and most importantly, they unplug from the noise and the unnecessary clutter around them. They find it easier to do more things effectively if they have a clear mind and have connected back to their core.

 

Here’s a what I do if I wanted to unplug and reconnect to my core:

 

  1. Grab a book. Sit down in the quietest spot and just read.
  2. Go down the beach and walk by the shore. Listen to the waves.
  3. Look up the sky – just like that.
  4. Go outside and do a 360 appreciation of what is around you. (I find it more powerful when I go to a place that is surrounded by trees)
  5. Refuse to check what is on your phone – better yet, turn off your phone.
  6. Turn off the TV – period.
  7. Just sit still. Stare blankly.

 

Simple Step to Success: Successful people find time even with their schedule to ‘settle themselves’; to find quietness in their lives; to put a brake on their fast paced life and slow down; they unwind and most importantly, they unplug from the noise and the unnecessary clutter around them
