9 Unheard ways to achieve personal growth:

Start with awareness of your personal growth

I have learned that in anything that you want to do in life, you have to start with awareness. Because if you are not aware of where you need to improve. If you need to improve, and what you need to improve, how would you move forward?

Awareness also means knowing what stage in your life you are in. And this is a teaching lesson right now. Sometimes you will find yourself asking questions. Questions like, “How come I’m not where I want to be right now?” “How come it worked out for others and not me?” “When will my time to achieve success come?”

But I am here to tell you, you are where you need to be in your personal growth. You are where you need to be in your life. And having that awareness is the first step.

Be intentional

In the book, “The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth” by Dr. John Maxwell. He talked about the “Law of intentionality”, which states ‘Growth doesn’t just happen. Which is true. We assume that we automatically grow as we age, but we do not. We have to be intentional in our growth. Be intentional to grow. And you can grow by reading a book. Listening to podcasts. Audiobooks. Whatever way you feel called to learn. Just have the intentions to learn.

Invest in you

Investing is something I wished I learned in my personal growth but I did not. Investing for me back then means spending money. Money that I didn’t have. Money that I would rather spend somewhere else.

It may look the same for you now. And to be honest, I am finding that some people are willing to learn. But when money is involved, they change their minds. I was in that situation too. And I wish I had the mindset then that I had now because investing in myself had a very high return on investment in where I am now in my life.

Investing also means investing time and effort. When you are intentional with your growth, you have to invest time in yourself and make an effort to grow.

Be consistent as part of personal growth

Consistency shows personal growth! Consistency shows results. It has this compounding effect that gives you the progress that you aim for. Most of the time we dabble. We take action when we are motivated or inspired. It is the consistent people who see personal growth. You don’t have to do massive things on a consistent basis. You just have to do something that will get you closer to your desired goal.

Surround yourself with people who like to grow

Surrounding yourself with the right people is a major factor in reaching your desired goal. And that applies to personal growth too. I conduct masterminds and there I talk about personal growth. We are surrounded by everyone who has a hunger for growth. Who loves to grow. The reason why I recommend this is because those people will understand your mission and your vision. When you are surrounded by those people, it is easier to continue with your intention to grow. It is easier to be consistent and they can be a reminder for you to keep investing in yourself.

Find a mentor to keep you growing

If you want to go fast, go alone

If you want to go far, go together

– African Proverb

As the African Proverb said, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” Growth has no finish line. There is always something to learn every day. It does not discriminate against age, skin color, gender, or whatever walk of life. You can learn as much as you can, but with a mentor, you can learn faster and on a wider horizon. Again, this is part of investing in you. Thinking that a mentor is not needed since it is an expense. And you can learn everything online for free now.

Not true! You cannot learn everything online for free. You still have to invest in something or someone. A mentor. Why? Because mentors have gone through things that you may have to go through in your growth. You are investing in that experience and lesson. A very effective mentor is someone who has gone through the things that you are going through and was able to get out of it.

This builds more credibility. They know how it feels to be in that position and they’ve learned ways to overcome it. Which is something that you can learn without having to go through the struggle. This means, it saves you time, effort, pain, struggle, and hurt.

I have been on my personal growth journey yet still felt something was missing. I hired a coach/mentor for two months. In those two months, I learned my purpose and learned what I needed to do to get there. Is hiring her worth it? Heck yes! I learned everything that I am passionate about within two months with the confidence that I can do it. Versus working by myself for two years.


This may sound like a boring process. And it is! But it is worth it. You cannot read without truly listening to the message. And you will not retain the information without writing it. Literally writing it! There is something about a pen touching the paper. And intentionally writing it down helps retain the information. I don’t know what it is and I will not pretend that I do, It’s something that I have read in the past and completely agreed with it.

Reflect on your personal growth

This is another vital part of the process. Every time you are growing and learning something new. You need to stop and reflect. Reflect on what you have learned. Assess if it’s something that you can apply in your life and/or teach to others. This can be done by meditating or journaling. Whatever works for you.

John Maxwell said, “You have to let the growth catch up with you”. This is also a good way to learn how far you’ve come in your journey.

Celebrate yourself

You should know this by now. I like celebrating myself. It’s not because I am full of myself but because I know the effort it takes to get something accomplished. And I know I deserve to celebrate… me. And guess what? You deserve to be celebrated too! So, as I always say, any win is a win. Big or small, it is a win. Big or small it needs to be celebrated. You can celebrate by giving yourself a pat on the back. Eating ice cream. Watching a movie. Whatever your heart desires.
