Personality Development is a process of enhancing and grooming one’s outer and inner self to bring about a positive change to your life. We may ask what exactly is one’s “personality”.
A few ways of defining it are:
- The visible aspect of one’s character as it impresses others
- The sum total of the physical, mental, emotional, and social characteristics of an individual
- The organized pattern of behavioral characteristics of the individual
- The quality of being a person
- Existence as a self-conscious human being
- Personal identity
- The essential character of a person.
Heredity: Heredity refers the physical aspects and looks attained from family like physical structure, face, gender, temperament, body as a whole and reflexes, energy and biological rhythms are characteristics.
Environment: The environmental factors that influence on our personality development are the culture in which we are raised, our early conditioning, the norms among our family, friends and social groups, and other influences that we experience.
Situation: A third aspect the situation, effects personality. An individual’s personality although generally stable and consistent, does change in different situations. The varying demand of different situations calls forth different aspects of one’s personality. So it is implied that personality patterns cannot be judged in isolation.
The first step towards Personality Development : Self Acceptance.
“Love yourself—accept yourself—forgive yourself—and be good to yourself, because without you the rest of us are without a source of many wonderful things.” – Leo F. Buscaglia
Ways of Accepting Yourself:
See Yourself as a Success – Take pride in your success and see yourself as successful, you would soon find change in your outlook towards life, and you would start accepting yourself.
Restore Your Self-Confidence – Self confidence is the only asset that we can hold on and enrich it in order to develop a sparkling and impressive personality. Develop self-confidence by telling yourself constantly that you are a unique and beautiful person. Understand your uniqueness, and you would soon start to accept yourself.
Jot It Down – Focus on all the positive qualities you possess and you would soon start to see yourself in good light.
Better your Life – It is important to accept you as you are but it is also important to strive to better yourself.
Find Happiness In The Basics – Happiness lies in one’s mind otherwise all the millionaires in the world would be happy.
Get Real – Remember that you will have to work towards the goal of accepting yourself. It will not happen overnight. Keep in mind that you are a unique person and unless you accept yourself, the world will not accept you. Work on inculcating self-confidence and you would soon see the opinions of others changing towards you.
