gap1The most common barrier to personal growth and development is your own imagination. How much a person can accomplish is only limited by the vision and determination of the person. If you think that you cannot accomplish something, then you will fail. If you think that you can accomplish something, and you invest the effort, you will succeed. Often, personal growth and development is often that simple.

Another common barrier to self-development is past failures or events. Often our past failures or bad events in our lives get in the way of personal growth and development. It is natural for our minds to dwell on such events, but only by moving past them can we truly grow as people and in our careers. We must learn to snub these incidents so that we can accomplish our goals.

One of the common barriers to self-development is our support systems, or lack of support. Negative messages from family, friends, and co-workers will only serve to bring us down, not lift us up. Surrounding yourself with people who are like-minded and striving for success in their careers and their life will help you to do the same. Whether you get support from an organized group, your friends, or your family makes no real difference. The support that you get, the motivational talks and the shoulder to share your pain on when things go wrong, will help you to realize all of your goals and overcome your barriers to self-development.

One of the less common barriers to personal growth or self-development is the basic absence of planning. Many people go through life taking what is handed to them, without ever setting down goals and striving to exceed expectations. To be satisfied with what is available is certainly a good strategy to live a peaceful life but if one is ambitious and motivated for bigger success, setting goals, figuring out how to reach those goals, and making a timeline for success is a vitally important and often ignored barrier to work on.

Keep in mind, whatever your barriers to personal growth and development, you can overcome your obstacles. Any person who sets realistic goals, creates a reasonable timeline for success, has personal integrity and adequate support, and strives for excellence can overcome these barriers and achieve the success that he or she may deserve.

A lot more assistance in personal growth and self-development is available on the internet or in books. You just have to find the right material. Don’t forget that all lives are not the same just as all exam papers are not the same. Do not try to copy others’ success. Doing so could land you in an undesired situation. A proper attitude towards your goal can help you overcome obstacles and achieve what felt like the impossible at one point.

And here is the master key. Remember you are never the controller! You can only try your best without being attached to the result. This is a hard to accept secret of success. If your endeavors are sincere and for the right cause, your success is guaranteed, today or tomorrow. But keep in mind that over-endeavor is waste of time. If you don’t find the expected success, it only means God has a different plan for you and that plan is better for you than your own plan.
