A reflection from Beyond the Classroom's student about personal development.
Things we do that might hinder our process of learning and growing
1. Not looking back
Growing up doesn’t mean we just keep going on the road of development. We often take no notice of how we grow: what happened. Even bad experiences make us who we are today. We cannot choose where we come from, but we can choose where we go from there.
2. Taking in too much information
We all have the fear of missing out. As we take in too much information, we find it harder to process it all and actually apply it into our lives on a daily basis. Simultaneously, by absorbing too much info, we cannot have deep understanding about anything.
3. Lacking self-awareness
“I don’t even know what I am good/bad at” is a common thing we all think of when we talk about our strengths and weaknesses. Having no self-awareness prevents us from having effective personal development and hinders our ability to find the right orientation for our lives.
