Personal Growth

by Dr. Bobbie Stevens on August 2, 2009

Personal growth affects every aspect of your life.  As we evolve we grow through different stages of growth, and our ability to understand is determined by where we are in our growth process.  Abraham Maslow in his famous hierarchy of growth model describes how we evolve from the ability to fulfill our most basic needs to being able to fulfill higher needs. (see my paper on Maslow’s Hierarchy)  At the top of this hierarchy of personal growth we find self-actualization.  At this level people have discovered their inner ability to fulfill all of their needs.

There are two things that block our personal growth and they are the stress that gets stored in our nervous system and our beliefs. Once we understand the value of personal growth and start to focus our attention on it, we must find a process for releasing the built-up stress that gets stored in our nervous systems.  As this stress is released our awareness expands and we are then able to see different possibilities and change some of the old beliefs that had kept us from making the progress we had hoped for in the past.

There are some laws of nature or principles of life that govern our experiences.  One of these principles is the law of attraction.  This principle is always working, something like gravity.  We attract to ourselves whatever we believe in.  Consequently, our beliefs in limitation etc, blocks our progress.

Personal growth is what Unlimited Futures is all about.  Fortunately, some years ago, I discovered a process for releasing stress and strengthening our nervous systems.  This process includes breathing exercises, yoga exercises, meditation and focusing techniques.  It is important that you learn this process and start working with it on a daily basis.  You just start from wherever you are and you grow.  As this personal growth takes place your life begins to improve and it continues to improve as you move through higher and higher levels of growth.

I have described this process in detail and provided diagrams and step-by-step guidelines in my book on Personal Growth I have also created a CD, DVD, Companion Workbook and a Home-Study Course to help you. They provide you with the perfect way to start your personal growth.  Once you start experiencing this growth process, we also provide courses that you can attend to accelerate this natural evolutionary process.

Hi Rusty,

I am not quite sure what you mean by assessment tools, but I will be happy to help you if I can. Could you give me some more information on what you are looking for?
