So what IS personal development? That’s right, we hear about it all the time, but the concept is rarely defined, as if it were obvious to everyone!
A phenomenon that has literally exploded in recent years, personal development seems to draw from a wide mix of psychology, theories, and practices, all with the ultimate goal of individual improvement.
In short, this is an area that addresses resources to help you improve, either physically, morally or professionally…
1 Personal development and purpose
Personal development has a simple goal: to improve your circumstances and help you take charge of your life.
No matter what area of your life you want to change, there is research out there to help you.
Looking to conquer your shyness? To improve your relationship skills? To become more attractive?…
All this stems from a need for change that can be related to personal development.
The truth is, SBK is even one aspect of this movement, with a specialization in the field of seduction.
Though personal development is not an area of study in and of in itself, it includes a whole range of ways for people to reflect on their lives, their perspectives and their shortcomings, to grow as an individual.
In short, personal development is a collection of reflections and recommendations that will help you achieve your personal goals while with respect to your own context, keeping in mind the ramifications of every decision you make.
2. The implications of personal development
Whether you are aware of it or not, every effort you make to improve yourselfcan be seen as a process of personal development.
You manifest a drive for personal development simply by being aware of your own needs, or by heeding a calling to become more successful in a particular field.
The main sources of personal development come from the field of psychology, including self-confidence, self-esteem, motivation, emotional regulation and situational awareness. These all contribute to your individual growth, help you see your own intrinsic value, and let the people around you see the real you.
3. Personal development professionals
Who can you turn to for the advice, methods and techniques necessary to improve your personality?
Well actually, you’re spoiled for choices: there are plenty of blogs and websites produced by self-styled “life coaches,” and if you’re looking for something a little more traditional (but expensive), you havealternatives like psychotherapy or seeing a psychologist.
4 The path to happiness and personal fulfillment
Contemporary society is set up so that we always focus on what we are lacking – all the things we need to get in order to have a happy life.
Just watch all the commercials on TV: they all give the message that you cannot be happy without their product.
This constant emphasis on our inability to be happy as we are pushes us to always want something “better” or to always need “more.”
Human beingsare, by definition, looking for personal satisfaction, and personal development gives us concrete ways to make our lives simpler and less stressful.
5. Choosing to change because of external judgments
It’s obvious that if we lived our lives totally removed from society, we wouldn’t see any reason to grow or change.
It is by comparing ourselves to others, being subjected to other people’s judgments and opinions, thatwe begin to see the need to make efforts to improve.
This is especially true for seduction. Without attempting to demonstrate your charisma, take care of your physical appearance,or show off your talents, it will be difficult to get women to notice you.
6 How to engage in personal development?
The first step on the road to personal development is, undoubtedly,identifying the area of your life pr aspect within yourself that needs improvement.
Depending on what you need to change, the method and direction will be different. It could be vocational training to expand yourcareer knowledge, exercising with a personal trainer to build muscle mass or to keep fit, preparing balanced meals, or staying in good mental health.
The truth is, personal development is nothing more than a set of actions based on your own needs as you see them. To identify your needs, you have to engage in a process of personal reflection to identify one or more areas of your life that need improvement: self-confidence, self-esteem, physical, occupational skills, etc…
7. Personal development: the heart of the Alpha Male personality
In fact, the will to improve and therefore to take risks is the trademark of a charismatic, proactive personality.
In terms of seduction, men who have the most success are those that do not rest on their laurels. Instead, they seek challenge and thrive in high-pressure situations.
It is by making risk a part of your daily life that you progress on the road to personal development.
You will come to see the personal satisfaction associated with achieving your goals and making your success visible to others.
Personal development is the phenomenon that allows you to discover your potential, build upon your talents, and achieve any goal you set for yourself.
As you can see, personal development is a must if you want to become a real player. Don’t be arrogant – remember that there will always be someone, somewhere, better than you, regardless of the field. Don’t rest on your laurels – keep up the effort to always improve yourself, showcase your charisma, and strengthen your personality.
The lesson? Personal development is a prerequisite to the development of your powers of seduction!
