People who are making progress with their personal growth and development programs generally hold two main beliefs, or articles of faith:

(1) They believe that there are potential solutions to their problems – to the challenges in various areas of their lives that they would like to improve

(2) They believe or have faith that they have, or will gradually acquire, the ability to find, discover, and implement those solutions.

Finding methods (solutions) to make our lives better is the foundational quest in any program that aims at self-actualization.

Let’s look at two other factors:

(a) The concept of self-improvement is all about recognizing the world of possibilities.

(b) Having a strong belief in possibilities and being solutions-oriented is a big part of the self-improvement process.

These are some of the reasons that inspirational-oriented personal growth books and other media are both popular and useful.

Inspirational materials generally involve messages and stories of hope and resulting success in the face of adversity. This helps us to have faith in the idea that solutions are possible, and that the average person can find and put into practice those solutions.
