2 Easy Ways to Boost Your Personal Growth

While I can't speak for everyone, I know there are moments when I feel less than stellar. I'm down, grumpy, fed up, and bored on such days. Therefore I'm not the most significant company to be around with. You see, days like that are a given when you're a person; they're not optional. On the other hand, there will always be days when things don't go as planned.

When a series of bad days occur over some time, what are the ramifications? Overwhelmingly, many of us complain that we're caught in some rut and confess that we're fed up with the way things are, but we have no idea how to get out of it. Getting out of a rut is challenging since you lack the desire or energy to make positive changes. It's also difficult to gather the insights or resources you'll need to accomplish the shift.

Here are two enjoyable and straightforward methods to pull yourself out of a rut and on the path to a brighter future right now.


Make an effort to be original.

Systematizing our lives helps make life go more smoothly, but the issue arises when things flow too well and we lose sight of possibilities outside our predetermined pattern. All of the things we do daily become routine, automatic, and part of our reality.

Begin by making one or two minor adjustments to your daily schedule, such as changing your breakfast time, radio station, gym routine, commute, or lunch routine. Don't stress about whether or not the adjustments you're making are good or bad; instead, focus on a few easy decisions that will benefit you greatly.

Making a change in your daily routine or doing something different from the usual forces you out of your comfort zone and gives you the freedom to explore new possibilities. To be in a better position to make better decisions, perceive things differently, and achieve different results, break out of your routine.


Utilize your Gut Feelings

Even if you don't recognize it, intuition may be a valuable ally while solving a problem. Intuition, according to the dictionary, is:

It is knowing or perceiving something without resorting to reasoning processes; intuitive cognition.

Insight acquired via the application of this talent; a keen understanding.

A feeling or perception of something that isn't obvious or deducible.

Your intuition is one of the most valuable companions you'll ever have and learning to tune into and trust it may have life-changing results. If you'd want to improve your intuition, think of it as growing a muscle that stays in one spot. Unfortunately, this isn't always the case. Here are a few short pointers on how to get to and use it:

Try to have an open mind and be fun and exploratory without judging others' results. This is the best place to use your innate wisdom.

• In your daily life, make wild assumptions. Decide on a salesperson's name, the appearance of a new person or location, or the person's identity contacting you on the telephone. If you do it incorrectly, don't stress; you're simply exercising that muscle.

• In your everyday life, do a few easy observational tasks. Make an effort to pay attention to nonverbal cues from people whenever you are in a social setting. Look for changes in the person's posture, eye movements, voice tone, or pace, among other signs of stress or anxiety. Try to deduce their emotions or the topic of their conversation.
