When it comes to self-development, it's the small stuff that often makes the biggest difference.
Too often, people think about big changes in terms of big decisions. They think it's a sweeping action that moves the needle, when really it's the incremental steps made on a day-to-day basis. Success, then, has far more to do with daily habits--not home runs.
So, how do you accelerate your own personal development?
By focusing on the small things:
1. Trust your gut.
No matter what, decisions have to be made here first. Check them with logic, run the numbers to make sure things make sense, but if it doesn't feel right, it probably isn't. Trust that.
2. Move to learn.
Learning doesn't happen at a standstill. If you ever feel stuck, really stuck, then let go of trying to find the answer and ask yourself how you can just keep the wheels moving. What can you do? Even if it doesn't make sense, do it. Keep moving.
3. Protect your inner circle.
The people you confide in? The people you trust? The people you share everything with? Protect that with your life. As soon as you let toxicity in, it becomes difficult to get it out. Protect yourself and the people around you by being aware of the energy people bring to the table.
