In the pursuit of any goal, there are times when it is necessary to take a step back and reflect. Not just reflect, but assess and appreciate, before refocusing and continuing forward. Personal development is no different. Through observation we become aware of the areas which need attention, and we strive to be the best we can possibly be. We focus our efforts on the few areas of deficiency, paying them disproportional levels of attention in an attempt to correct or improve ourselves. But we must be careful not to ignore our greatness.
Even though you may have identified aspects of your personality or behaviour which you would like to change, don’t ignore the rest of who you are. If you do, you will overlook your most delightful characteristics. (Even the areas you choose to work on have sides to them which are positive and advantageous to you and your world.)
From time to time, reflect on your qualities and acknowledge your beauty. See yourself as others see you and take a moment to celebrate who you are. Make a conscious effort to enjoy your self.
