Start your development plan NOW
The first and most important step is to decide that you are going to make your own personal development plan, and that you are going to see it through. Remember, it will help you change your life right now. You may not complete you planning today; however, you can make a start. It will take you sometime to get it just the way you want, however, the time you spend will be the most valuable time you ever spend.
Seek helpful advice
When you are ready set your personal goals. Once you have done this you can then seek advice from family and trusted friends. The reason for this is that they can be a great source of wisdom.
Start your change
Just like the world around you, you too need to change, however, you should not do this just for the sake of, you need to do it because you want to create your life plan. Remember, there is good change and there is bad change. Good change comes from careful planning; bad change is often linked to a lack of planning. This is when you just let your daily live drift on. By creating your own personal development plan you will have more influence over the changes that influence you life.
Making the plan
This means deciding today to take charge of the rest of your life. What you plan now will affect the rest of your life. Choose to make this planning time the most important part of you life, remember it will change you life. What you plan and do today will influence who you are tomorrow. Make it personal! For example, I will be… I plan to achieve success… and by the end of (place a month here) I will have.
Set your goal a little higher
However, do not set your goals too high or you may become discouraged when it all seems too hard. However, do not set it too low either because without some challenge there is often not much change. Set the goal at a challenging height. Whatever you set your personal goal at; you need to set yourself up for success along the way. To keep success coming you need to keep your goals at a challenging height.
Start to enjoy the journey
There will be many paths that make up your journey to Self Improvement and Self Growth and when you choose, choose the paths you like most. Do things that appeal to you and change your life so you can gain enjoyment and achieve success. Choose people you like to be with and who can help you along the way.

Do not stop moving
On your journey there will be some rough patches. However, you need to keep going and not give up when you get these less desirable patches. Keep your goal in mind, focus on completing this step, and maintain your momentum and you will be through it sooner than you think, all this will be worth it so you can achieve success.
Self-improvement and self-growth really is a life-long journey. There are many places along the way where you can spend time allowing you to enjoy all that life has to offer.

What is your intention?
Your thoughts form a powerful image of whom you are and who you can become. Be sure to keep your thoughts in line with your goal. Do you really want what it is, are you saying yes? If you are saying yes and you want to complete a marathon yet you hate running, then your thoughts will be undermining your plan. Work out what you are thinking, toss out what is working against you and keep what is working with you. Once you and your thoughts are on the same page you will have your own development plan in action and your progress will change your life.
You will achieve success with each step you take towards your goal. When you are ready you could help and encourage others in their own personal development plans. If they do not have a plan, suggest to them that it might be something worth doing. By building up the lives of others you will begin to grow and develop faster.
Take one step at a time
If all this seems too much to take in right now, remember, that man stepped onto the moon after many thousands of smaller steps were taken on the journey towards successful space travel. Break your goals into smaller steps that can be written into a diary or worked into your daily routine.
