Learning about yourself is a team sport. Teacher, professionals and even friends can help you while you analyze what you are thinking and encourage you to express your feelings.
Use your work time efficiently. Some say there is a trick that involves taking frequent breaks throughout the work day. This might sound counterproductive, but breaks allow you to refocus and re-energize, allowing you to return and work more efficiently.
Place your personal central principles into practice. Every person has beliefs that serve their core sense of self. If you have good reason to have these beliefs, you will feel more confident and grow your self esteem by adhering to these beliefs and principles. Best of all, following your beliefs encourages consistency, and this is a much desired character trait.
In order to work on your personal development, you have to be willing to be humble. Realizing your place in the big scheme of things is freeing. You will begin to understand that there are many ways to improve. Staying aware of this will broaden your perspective and increase your quest for knowledge, leading to a better you.
Base your development plan on your values and goals. Trying to change yourself in ways that are not in line with your values, is not a good idea. So instead, you should spend your efforts on things in your life that match up with your values. If you do this, you can make lifelong positive changes, both personally and professionally.
Try talking to the pastor at your church, or a therapist; it can help. They have a great deal of experience in dealing with personal thoughts and are even licensed to do so. They will help you figure out what things are bothering you and what you can do to sort them out. Getting your problems out in the open with a professional should give you a much healthier outlook on your own life.
It is best if you know yourself more than others do. Remember that throughout your life, you yourself are your own closest friend, so treat yourself right and work to improve yourself.
