Here are some questions to begin your exploration process.

  • Name a few things about your current job, career or education about which you feel disappointed or bored
  • Name a few things about your current living situation, home or home furnishings about which you feel disappointed or bored
  • What are some aspects of your friendships, family ties or your love life about which you feel angry, confused, bored or hurt
  • Glance over the negative statements you wrote and begin asking yourself what you would change about those areas of your life. Take each sentences or phrase and create an "I want" statement. read over these several times a day until you feel really comfortable and confident about what you want.

    Your next step will be to employ affirmations. This process may take several days or weeks. When you are ready to release the way things are currently and begin to change them, write "I have" statements for each of the "I want" statements you composed above. For example an "I have ugly bedroom furniture that doesn't match" becomes "I have a beautiful, color-coordinated, matching bedroom set."

    Use Your Imagination

    Take your new list of affirmative, faith-thoughts and read them each morning and each night. Begin to imagine how it will feel to see these changes taking place in your life. Your statements probably won't be about furniture and will likely be about your personal relationships or your financial situation or even your health. Use your imagination like you did when you were a child and begin the most important step of being grateful for these changes before they even begin. As you answer the question for yourself, What is personal development, you will become more self-aware, experience more personal growth and begin making improvements to your life you may have only dreamed of in the past.
