I strongly support practicing personal development on a daily basis. There are numerous motivational factors that have positive effects on your personal development. For example, motivational recordings help to improve your mental outlook and your intention. Similarly, motivational books help to build your level of confidence personally and professionally. Doing exercise helps to strengthen your body mentally and physically. The question is how can you have enough time to do all of these things? The solution is incorporating your physical and mental personal development. Let me share with you about my favourite technique.
I am a fan of walking. My favourite form of workouts is to go outside and walk as fast as I can. This makes my heart rate increase, the blood circulates freely, and the great advantage of this type of exercise is that it gives me time to think while walking. I walk about one hour a day. I make use this same time to listen to inspirational recordings. I bring my MP3 player with me when I go out or my morning walk. My favourite motivational speakers are Tony Robbins, David Wood, Jim Rohn, and Oprah.
Personal development does not only involve in motivation. You need to improve your expertise to help you achieve your goals. I often have my MP3 player loaded with audio books that provide me necessary skills to acquire my goals. This may include books regarding economic development, health and fitness, memory improvement, and perhaps other fields that you need to learn.
I split my walking hour into two sections. The first section I listen to inspirational speakers to make my brain become active. Then I switch into learning mode in the second section. I spend the last 30 minutes to listen to experts describing methods to develop my personal aspects. You may not see the magnitude of beginning your day this way. You will move from sleeping mode to literally alert and then totally active in your mind and your body. You will move from lethargic stage to excitement. You will move from asking yourself how to solve problems to receiving advice on what you should do. You experience all of this before you begin your day.
I also combine evening exercise and reading activity. How can I do that? Well, I have an exercise bike in the family room at my house so that I can do bike exercise and read book at the same time. This help me get some relaxed time and still get extra workout while spending quality time with my family. I am not worried about the distraction from the family or the television as I just read to relax and digest. The words flow into my mind subconsciously which create maximum advantage.
The final tip I would like to mention in this article is to write down your annual goals and read them every day before you start doing your morning exercise and after you finish reading your motivational book at night. Also plant action plans for each goal when you continue your quest for personal development. You will be astonished when you see your goals getting closer gradually.
