The Need for Personal Development

I'd like to go over what we're basically dealing with in personal development, and what the need is for the resources and training that Trans4mind offers…

So, let’s get to the nitty gritty. Most often, when we have an uncomfortable or stressful feeling about our life circumstances, we bury it beneath watching TV, having some food or a drink, gossiping with the neighbors, working out at the gym, whatever. We may not even acknowledge we have a problem, and even if we do, we hope it will go away rather than doing anything about it - after all, things are as they are, what can we do to change them?

There's little recognition that the real source of our problems and anxieties, or lack of purpose and fulfillment, and maybe lack of meaningful relationships in our lives - the real source lies within us. We have the power to take responsibility for what is within our control and to realize - rather than resist - what is not and let that go

By being more self-aware, by responding rather than reacting, we can feel more inner peace and at the same time have more integrity - start to really be ourselves rather than meeting others’ expectations.

So personal development is a process of finally uncovering our true self, in effect. Recognizing our potential, expressing our creativity... Emerging from the chrysalis of our past upbringing and conditioning.

We start to see an holistic picture emerge, a much deeper understanding. The jigsaw connects in front of your eyes. You don't just have a problem, you have a potential. The human heart becomes visible. Your life is transformed.
