Many people think that only formal Business oriented programs are vital to their career growth. It's important to note you are not separate from your business. You are at the core of your career.

You are the most important part of your working life. You are the common denominator in all you’ve ever done.

Taking care of YOUR inner life is essential for business success.

Personal Growth supports business success in countless ways. Here are the top 12 non-negotiable reasons to invest time, energy and resources into your personal development.

12. REST. RELAX. REJUVENATE. Get away and replenish on a personal growth retreat. Fill up your depleted cells, restore your energy, engage peace of mind. Meaningful forward motion is only possible with a full tank.

11. BE HERE NOW. Make time and space learning to be present. Practice awareness of all your senses, of how you feel and what’s going on around you. Experience & appreciate the stuff of life missed when in your head.

10. PATTERN RECOGNITION. Same old, same old haunts your decisions until you wake up to unhealthy patterns that keep you stuck. Professional support leads you out of the outmoded into brand new healthy horizons.

9. HEAL EMOTIONAL BAGGAGE. Learn tools to let go of what no longer serves you. Liberation helps you reach beyond limiting beliefs. Emotional lightening up is mandatory to attain lasting success in life.

8. FACE FEARS, GROW COURAGE. Identify your fears, take the bogyman out of the closet, evaluate & clarify the real risks. These are prerequisites to sound decisions making. Moving forward with fear defines courage.

7. SELF-KNOWLEDGE. Know thyself is ancient advice. What do you want? What are you ready to let go? What matters? What do you value? How do you want to live? Self-knowledge is fundamental to your vision making.

6. CLARITY. As you grow up out of your emotional clutter, firm in your newly found understanding of who you are, you can choose your influences, listen to your wisdom, create your contribution on a rock solid foundation.

5. SELF LOVE. Get tools to accept your imperfections, the dips in your journey, the lessons you had to learn. These achievements make way for self-compassion and understanding. Excellent choice recognition follows.

4. BETTER BOUNDARIES. When you love yourself, when you see, accept & value yourself, then you can afford the respect inherent in a sincere powerful YES and NO to colleagues, partners, family, friends, staff & suppliers.

3. HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS. When you love yourself and are clear with others about your needs, everybody wins. Your renewed commitment to yourself poignantly sheds loving light into all other relationships in your life.

2. SELF WORTH. Learn to value yourself, be at peace with your unique contribution to this world, know you are good enough. This pivotally allows in ALL the gifts the Universe is lining up for your exceptional self-expression.

1. FEEL GOOD. BE HAPPY. The whole reason we do anything is to feel happy. The more you feel happy the more willing you are to continue growing so that joy becomes the default from which all expression flows.
