What Personal Development Is and What It Is Not.

Personal Development is one of the topics always discussed in seminars intended for people who want more than they already have in life, in a positive way.

Most of us don’t understand what it really means and the process involved, personal development is not just all about increasing your financial capacity, administrative position, physical body or knowledge and skills, all these are very essential features and abilities that  are necessary and can help in the process, but if they are not inclined to your divine purpose it hasn’t made meaning yet.

Where do you start:

To get more meaning out of everything in life, you have to start by knowing your own physical body, there abilities, capacities, processes and functions. if you don’t understand the capacity and ability of your memory you will think that the amount of information is capable of contain is the amount already stored in it, you might not know that every human don’t use about 50% of there memory before death.

Psychologists believe that the human memory is capable of expanding in capacity to something closer to around 2.5 petabytes or a million gigabytes.

You might not appreciate the ability you have as human to do your own thinking unlike order animals that operate by genetic codes, you will just neglect the power you have to change your awful past life.

If you don’t understand the process that brings about your vocal sound, you will not know how important your words are.
