The journey from being hell lazy to goal oriented!

Thanks to personal development plan!

Sitting on a couch, noticing the weather from the window while it’s raining outside along with the sips of coffee was not as much fascinating as it used to be. The crux of the matter was the conversation of two young kids that I heard this morning. They were discussing what they want to be in the future and imagining the ways via which they can have their goals.

Get up, Groom yourself & tomorrow meet a better version of yourself!

Suddenly this hit my mind and I was stuck for a moment. It seems my mind was asking me what I wanted to be in my life. Sadly, there was no answer. However, I get up from the place and came to home but the question was still there in the corner of my mind irritating me on and off.

This takes me to the past years and then I remember that just like other kids I wanted to be a teacher. But I never worked for it. I guessed that I don’t want to become a teacher as every child at an early age said this once. Then I remember that I wanted to wear a white doctor’s coat. But again it doesn’t seem to be a satisfactory reply. More to this, a number of professions come into my mind but none of them satisfies me. In short, after spending a few hours in the memories I didn’t get the answer.


To get my query solved I start browsing over the internet. That was the moment I realized that I never worked for it. I never worked over a self-development plan. I never worked over what I wanted to achieve. Summarizing it, I was living a dead life having no personal development plan.

That was the day my life was changed.

From a dull and lazy person, I become a goal oriented person full of zeal and zest. I start working over personal growth and self-improvement by making a personal development plan. Ultimately, it makes me a highly energetic person as now I have the purpose to work for.

Did you make a personal development plan? NO! Start it right now before you miss the flight. But HOW? Follow me.

However, as two human beings can never have similar thoughts and plan. Similarly, every individual has its own self-development plan. Despite this, I have listed down the few steps that will help you out in creating your personality development plan.
