Fill the GAP with a Prep Year

We must rather go with the choice that scares us the most because it is this choice which will help you grow.

Many young people are entering the grown-up world with no clue as to who they are, how the world works, and much less as to what they want to do with their lives. These uncertainties along with increasing poverty and unemployment rates lead the majority of young people to steer away from the road less traveled.

Putting a Year Aside

As Brian Tracy, an American – Canadian public speaker, once said: “Personal development is a major time saver. The better you become, the less time it takes you to achieve your goals.”

Sitting there, studying for the final exam of your school life. You have an idea of where you want to go and what you want to do with your life, but you have this weird feeling that you may have something missing. You’re not sure what it could be, but you feel like you are falling behind in life in some way.

Invest in Yourself

Where do I begin?

It’s really not the end of the world if you do not have it all figured out yet, just start somewhere.

Find something you love

Times have changed and young people are not settling for jobs just to make ends meet like older generations did, instead they are looking for something that will be fulfilling and make them happy. I think one of the most dreaded things we hear a lot today from young people is to be tied to a desk from 8 to 5 in a dead-end job with no freedom.  

The Highly Sensitive Person

A book by

Elaine N. Aron

This book opened up a new world to me, being an HSP myself but not knowing it, this book has helped me so much with understanding myself and managing my life and emotions. I learned to not push myself so much and to be kind to myself. Here is a summary of the book. It really is a great read, if the info below resonates with you then I would suggest you get your copy of the book. Let's get to it then.

How to Make Lasting Changes

Creating behaviour that lasts – becoming the person you want to be.

This is a condensed summary of the active questions from the book Triggers, by Marshall Goldsmith, a good read with some great tips and helps.

‘Active questions trigger trying’

A behavioural trigger is any stimulus that impacts our behaviour. In this book, we examine the environmental and psychological triggers that can derail us at work and in life. As Marshall Goldsmith points out, our reactions don’t occur in a vacuum. They are usually the result of unappreciated triggers in our environment—the people and situations that lure us into behaving in a manner diametrically opposed to the colleague, partner, parent, or friend we imagine ourselves to be.

5 Main Reasons You Might be Stuck in a Rut

Personal development is important because it shows the value you place on yourself.

What is keeping you from personal growth?

I am going to go out on a limb and assume you’re here because personal growth is important to you. Or maybe I’m wrong and the picture for this article was really alluring and you somehow ended up here. Either way, I can almost guarantee that this subject is relevant to you.

How? You may ask. Well, the fact of the matter is, no matter how determined we are to better ourselves and how focused we are to develop as individuals, we all sometimes feel like we’ve landed in a personal-growth rut.

“Personal development is the belief that you are worth the effort, time and energy needed to develop yourself.” ―Denis Waitle

Stress seems to be one of the most commonly used words nowadays. Think about it, how many times have you heard someone say: “Oh, I’m stressed out, I’ve got so much on my plate!” or something similar? And apart from that, it’s not just adults with jobs and loaded responsibilities feeling it anymore, this term has transpired onto young people as well.

But, are you actually experiencing stress? How do you know that you are experiencing it? Here are a couple of tell-tale signs of stress and some practical ways how to deal with it.

5 Important Elements for Your Journey of Personal Growth

Isn’t there more to life? Is this it?

Have you asked this question before? Well, there certainly is more to life, and you will start to find it once you start asking these questions. Personal growth or self-discovery is a wonderful journey and not a destination because we will never stop learning and improving there will always be more to know and learn.

This article is not to put more pressure on people to be more, do more, achieve more, more, more, more! But rather to set people on this self-discovery and growth path so that they can experience a fulfilled life.
