Personal Growth Quotes

Personal growth quotes cover a myriad of self improvement topics, all of which come under the banner of “self-help”:

  •  How to build self confidence
  •  How to build self esteem
  •  How to overcome fear
  •  How to have the right mental attitude
  •  How to break bad habits

All these topics ARE self improvement, but it’s up to you, and only you, to decide that you are going to improve your own life by developing your personal growth.

Personal Growth Quotes

“It’s not what we get, but what we become, what we contribute….. that gives meaning to our lives” – Tony Robbins.

You’ll find that the more you “give” of yourself, the more reward you’ll reap.  It’s extremely easy to be selfish and just “take” in this world, but by giving more of yourself, you will find you’ll be richly rewarded.  But the giving needs to be genuine – it’s no good thinking you can give in order to get back in return.  It doesn’t work like that.  Give of yourself, but don’t expect returns.  Do this often enough in your life and you’ll feel  much more at peace and ease with yourself.

If you think about anyone successful that you know, I’ll bet they give of their lives, as well as work hard, of course.  The successful person always gives, the unsuccessful person  who gives little, gets little back in return.

It’s very easy to become very insular and selfish when you want to embark on your personal self development journey, but if you take the time to sit back from it all and look at the bigger picture, and why you want to give yourself more self help instruction, then I think you’ll see that you have a huge amount to give in the process.

I hope these personal growth quotes will help.  Don’t let your attitude get you stuck in a rut.

How to build personal growth

Personal growth starts with you.  In order to be better more successful person, you’ve got to have the right mental attitude.  It’s up to you to make the decision to choose the right attitude.

“There is little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference.  That little difference is attitude.  The big difference is whether it’s positive or negative” – Robert Collier.

Your first port of call for your self improvement development plan should be looking at your current attitude.  There are so many personal growth resources that can and definitely will help you.

One of these personal growth quotes by Zig Ziglar backs up my statement here.

“You can make positive deposits in your own economy everyday by reading and listening to powerful positive life changing content

If you want success you listen to successful people, you soak up all the information you can from those who have succeeded by walking the walk.

Personal growth success leaders

One of the greatest success leaders is Richard De Vos, founder of the Amway Corporation.  There is no denying (even if you are not a keen advocate of multi level marketing), that this man built something from nothing from his back garden shed and that positive mental attitude wins the day.

“Few things in the world are more powerful than a positive push.  A smile.  A world of optimism and hope.  A ‘you can do it’ when things are tough”.  – Rich de Vos.

“Winners make a habit of manufacturing their own positive expectations in advance of the event” – Brian Tracy.

“Be not afraid of growing slowly; be afraid only of standing still” – Chinese Proverb

Personal self improvement is your decision

“The only journey is the journey within” – Rainer Maria Ricke

If you’re ever feeling down, remember this quote as well as the one from Earl Nightingale –

“We become what we think about”.

When you are feeling things aren’t going quite the way you want, or you come across some obstacle that changes your mindset, you can immediately alter your thoughts to become positive – just by using one of the Earl Nightingale personal growth quotes above.  I have learnt to do this over the years, and it works EVERY time.

There will always be times when we don’t feel up to the job, but remember that if you remain in that low state if mind, you take your whole self down with it.

You’ll never win if you don’t learn to change your attitude.

“It’s not what happens to you, it’s life that makes the difference, it’s how you react to each circumstance you encounter that determines the results” – Dr Robert Schuller.

Breaking the mould and deciding to improve yourself internally can be challenging to many.  But it doesn’t need to be.  Start by reading some very positive self help books which really do help.  And don’t just take my  work for it that they help (which they do!), remember the quote from above by Zig Ziglar.

Each of us is different, each has different needs, wants and desires, but deciding to take charge of your life can and will have an everlasting effect on you – and it will only be a positive effect.

“If you have a positive attitude and constantly strive to give your best effort, eventually you will overcome your immediate problems and find you are ready for greater challenges” – Pat Riley.

Finally I’d like to leave you with this personal growth quote which I hope will give you the courage to do something about changing your current attitude to something far more positive and successful.

“If we all did the things we are capable of, we would astound ourselves” – Thomas Edison.
