How to continue your personal growth?
What is personal growth and professional development?
These are the common questions which come into mind while we think about personal growth.
Two years or back, a friend of mine had launched a mobile app firm, and was quite satisfied with what he was offering. He seemed more cheerful than he was ever before. While out for a lunch, a friend of ours commented on this change in his attitude. According to him, our friend has finally realized What he wanted to do and has gained some clarity in his life.
This set me thinking and I came back home pondering over the statement. When I looked back at the time when this friend was employed with a job that made him unhappy, I remember how stressed he seemed even with a few hours’ extra work. Today, when he was putting in god knows how many extra hours, he simply did not mind them. in fact, he was happier and had more time for himself and the family.
I realized that from the time he had started out to now, he had grown as a person and also established himself professionally. I was wondering what that change was when this other friend pointed out the term clarity. Yes, he was now clear of what he wanted from life and people, which made him better as a person.
