Personal Development – Why is it Neccessary?

The word person refers to an individual, when it becomes personal it turns into an object, or/and an intangible character that is associated with that individual. 
Today, let’s talk about personal development because it’s an essential part of our formation. What do we mean by Personal Development I hear you ask?
Personal development can be looked at in the perspective on your personal attributes and characteristics and also from the aspect of your career.
Your characteristics, beliefs and attributes define you, this is what differentiates you from someone else. Some of these components can be an added advantage as well as it can be your greatest set-back. So how do  you define which ones are positive and which ones are negative?
The thing is there is no real answer to this because it can only be analysed on a case by case basis however they are key characteristics that no matter the situation it will work in your favour some of them are:
  • Kindness 
  • Humility
  • Organised
  • Diplomatic
When dealing with people in various capacities these qualities are essential whether it’s your interacting with fellow colleagues at work or family and friends.

Why is it necessary to focus on Personal Development?
With our ever changing society, as individuals we need to develop ourselves to ensure we remain relevant in our industries. This can include:
  • Broadening your knowledge base with new technologies and news in your sector
  • Take an additional course in relation to the work you are doing in your current role
  • Volunteer in an establishment to gain experience which will be valuable to your CV
Even if your not currently employed, this is the time to use to further your knowledge by reading articles, taking short courses, and even volunteering in an organisation to gain experience; Experience is invaluable and relevant because it adds to your personal and career development.
When potential employers look at your CV, they will not concentrate so much on the fact that you are unemployed. What they would be more interested in is what you did in that period of time to develop yourself further.
It demonstrates the unspoken attributes you have, and determines whether you are able to conform into the working class culture.
We all aim to be better and regardless of our age and the stage we have attained to in life, we always learn something new as long as the earth continues to rotate.
Aim to be better than you were yesterday by doing something or learning something which makes you more knowledgeable than you were yesterday.
“With Age, and experience comes wisdom, with knowledge comes Wealth”
