We spend our lives searching for its meaning, and the meaning is different for each one of us, as we all have different life journeys. As I make changes in my life, starting with my health, I realised that there is a lot more to finding the meaning of life and none other is better than self-betterment.I want to grow and develop my God given talents; I want to further the knowledge and skills I have learnt through out my life. From my research and from speaking to different people who are at various stages of their journeys; I now know and understand that personal development takes time and practice to master. there are simple steps that one can start applying immediately and there are actions that take time and patience. I am just at the beginning.

As I embark on this journey I have also realized my love of helping other, is stronger than it has ever been. There is so much out there that has to be offered and so much more to learn from; and I am strong believer in that there is no end to learning; our brains are the most powerful and mystic organs so lets embrace its power and allow it to shape our lives for the better.

 So I have put together 25 of my favorite steps/things you can do to start your own journey of self-development.

  1. Sleep early
  2. Drink tea
  3. Laugh more
  4. Exercise (even dancing is exercise)
  5. Read more books; they are a great source of knowledge and wisdom
  6. Be generous
  7. Explore more
  8. Have more patience
  9. Slow down
  10. Set goals
  11. Take time to enjoy memorable moments
  12. Let go
  13. Travel
  14. Make the best out of everything
  15. Listen to music (all sorts of music not just the kind you like)
  16. Take walks
  17. Write ‘to do list’
  18. Give up bad habits
  19. Pray
  20. Take deep breaths
  21. Stay positive; always
