Personal development training has something to do with improving all the aspects of a person’s life. Although most of the process actually relies on self-help, there are specific ways by which this kind of training enhances self-awareness, increases self-confidence and empowers the individual to fulfill his or her dreams.
Self-awareness is basically about how much you know about yourself. Your identity is formed by making social comparisons, and self-esteem is built on how superior or inferior you consider yourself to be in comparison to others, and in relation to your culture’s standards.
Personal development training does not end in self-awareness and making social comparisons however, for after an individual knows more about himself, the next goal is to enable the individual to accept himself and let him develop his talents and strengths. This is done through setting specific goals and making plans by which these goals can be achieved, oftentimes with the help of a coach or a mentor.
Success in personal development training could be measured or evaluated in terms of the quality of a person’s relationships, career and overall satisfaction with life. Motivation, diligence, willingness to learn and an amiable attitude towards others are all necessary in achieving personal development.
You see, there’s actually no end to this kind of training because people constantly change, and there is always a way for people to develop. What’s good about the whole process though is that it does not really spell out success for an individual alone, but extends the individual’s success to the social groups that he or she belongs to.
