Usually the People in life who experience positive change follow personal development principles that have been around since the dawn of thought. The life we now have has enormous potential when we learn to utilize the resources available within us. So how can this inner potential be harnessed to create the life you truly want?
Everything around us, and within us are in constant cycles of change creating new challenges and opportunities as we evolve. However one thing that seems to never change is human nature. Our primitive instincts to survive, and thrive cannot be ignored. The one common denominator we all have despite every cultural diversity is a deep desire for wealth, health, and happiness. But for any of these things to truly happen we must make some positive changes in our lives.
We all have areas in our life that need improvement, but the reasons vary! Maybe it’s time to start a new business, make new friends, get into a new relationship, or out of an old one. Usually it’s our intuition that lets us know when our life needs to change.
5 Essential skillsets for positive change
1 – Master Your Time Wisely
Every person on the planet has 24 hours each day to use wisely, or waste it away. We can easily find ourselves habitually wasting away time on things that don’t matter.
The choices we make everyday determines how we spend our time which determines our present state we find ourselves in. This reflects our true priorities, and measures our incentives. Time is priceless. We can either build our dreams, or waste them away on endless distractions that get us nowhere. Learn to increase your daily productivity, and eliminate time killer’s.

The more energy, and effort we put into our relationships the more friends, resources, and opportunities pour back into our lives. Developing better people skills is not very complicating. Here’s 3 simple effective ways to make a positive change in the way others perceive you.
3 people skills that will make, or break you
- Train Yourself to Smile More – A simple smile signals to other people that you are approachable, and likeable. On the hand when you don’t smile you seem unapproachable, and unlikable. Another good thing about smiling more often is it changes your mood from …. Ok another day ….. To … Wow, I’m smiling… Today I feel fantastic! When you feel good, others feel good around you.
- Make Casual Eye Contact – Eye contact suggests that you’re honest, and trustworthy. When you look down, or away when people are talking with you they feel disrespected, unimportant, and ignored. To get anywhere with people they must feel respected. Learn to smile with your eyes, and nod slightly as to say ….. I like you …. You’re very interesting. Ask questions with your eyes engaged with curiosity, and interest. You can learn a lot about a person by looking into their eyes. The eye is a window to the soul. However don’t stare intently at them. This makes people feel uncomfortable. The whole idea is to connect with people at a deeper level.
- Learn to Listen – Developing a keen ear to listen to other people talk takes practice because it’s our nature to premeditate what we’re going to say next. As a result we’re not paying attention to what’s being said to us. Learn to listen, and you’ll be praised by others without hardly saying a word. People are much more interested in how much you care then how much you know.
I have always wanted to be a catalyst for bringing about positive change, inspiring others to choose goodness. Shari Arison
4 – Grow your life in personal development
Personal development is not about perfection, but growing despite imperfections. Applying a few simple things daily can grow your self -confidence, and success enormously. Here’s some examples below:
- Develop a Plan of Action – Having a life plan on paper is helpful, but without action it’s worthless. The more we put off what needs to be done the easier it gets to procrastinate on our dreams.
- Put Goals Into Perspective – Writing down your goals is easy! The hard part is living it out once the ink dries. Knowing what you want will sharpen your clarity, but the power of change is in your mind not a piece of paper.
- Make small changes – Small consistent changes create big results overtime. If you feel overwhelmed doing big things, try doing small things in a big way. The main thing is to stay consistent as you grow your life in personal development.
5 – Transform your power into positive change
Information without transformation is worthless. Ask yourself what really matters then move your daily activities in that direction. We can choose at any moment to either build our dreams or ignore them. To do what’s important, or waste time on things that aren’t. We can transform bad habits into good habits or do the opposite. It’s in our power to make positive changes, and once we do it can literally transform our life.
