Self Development

February 25 2010 Self Development Newsletter

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as your new Self Development editor! This is my first newsletter since I joined and I am thrilled to connect with you all here!

So what on earth is Self Development?? There are so many definitions worldwide, such as “Self-Development is taking personal responsibility for one's own learning and development through a process of assessment, reflection, and taking action.”

As definitions like this can sound very formal you might be interested to know what I think about Self Development. Imagine there was a ‘Happiness scale’ that went from 1 to 10 whereby 1 meant you could not be more UNHAPPY with your life, and 10 meant you could not be more HAPPY with your life.

Most people live their lives in the range of 3 – 7. I believe that Self Development consists of the tools you need to GET you to a 10 and to KEEP you there no matter what life hits you with!

Are you thinking this is impossible? Are you wondering how you can stay at a level of 10 when real life is full of ups and downs such as divorce, death, losing a home, being sacked and other disasters?

I have been in the Self Development field for over 30 years and will show you that it is absolutely possible to live your life at a 10 no matter what is round the corner. This is exactly what I cover in my articles.

By the way, do feel free to let me know what YOU would like to see covered on the Self Development site. This is YOUR site and it is really important that you get what you want from it. So please let me know:

* What topics would you like me to write about?
* What areas of your life do you find the most frustrating?
* What fears would you love help with?
* What do you want to change in your life (no matter how big or small)?

Your feedback is VITAL so do contact me whenever you want. (The easiest way to do this is by replying to this newsletter update)
