Personal growth and development is a process that we sporadically engage in intuitively and unconsciously every time we develop a new practical skill (such as learning a second language) or take steps to improve life-intangibles such as helping others or improving a relationship.

However there can come a time in our lives when we may need or want a more systematic approach to improving our overall quality of life.

Here some of the signs, reasons, or circumstances that may prompt people to investigate a more formal approach to enhancing the management of their lives:

(1) Although not clinically depressed, we may feel a general sense of dissatisfaction with the progress we are making in various aspects of our lives
(2) We are aware of our strengths and talents but want to maximize them to their full potential
(3) We know our weaknesses or faults and would like to turn these into positives
(4) We have a general feeling of resignation or negativity and want to bring more happiness and optimism into our lives
(5) We feel “stressed-out” and want to achieve a state of well-being and contentment
(6) We want to bring a greater degree of spirituality into our lives
(7) We want to improve our leadership capabilities
(8) We are having trouble keeping balance in our emotions and want to achieve more equilibrium
(9) We want to achieve more autonomy and independence in our approach to life; we want to better control our destiny
(10) We feel we are drifting somewhat and want to establish a personal sense of purpose in our life
(11) We are searching for “who we are” and “what we really want to do” and want to establish a better sense or concept of self-identity
(12) Although we may consider ourselves to be a “good person” we may feel that we need to establish more consistency or integrity in our actions
