What is self-improvement?
5 pillars for personal development (PERMA)
How development plans can accelerate personal growth
It is human to feel stuck at times in particular situations we’re experiencing. Sometimes we’re trapped in old habits that have become routine, no longer serve us and simply deplete our time and energy. They certainly don’t allow us to reach our full potential.
There is a danger that we never break free from the habits that constrain us, particularly as we might be oblivious to the fact these habits exist. If we don’t become self-aware, we cannot free ourselves and move forwards. However, if we become self-aware, we can take our lives into our hands and start deciding which direction to take. We can escape from our monotonous routine and reach our dream destination, where we can fully express our potential and become our best selves.
As an art, the process of becoming who we really want to be requires patience, concentration, and trust in our long-term goals.
The journey for personal growth is an exciting opportunity for you to align with your real desires, cut the noise of external pressure, discover your strengths, talents, and gifts and tune in to your true values to achieve a fulfilling personal and professional life.
The good news is that there is no exact time to embark on a self-improvement journey.
As the proverb states:
“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now”.
What is Self Improvement?
Self-improvement is a conscious action that enables a person to grow. It allows people to develop their innate character strengths, talents and skills. It enables people to address any over or under-played strengths, which show up in their lives as deficits or weaknesses.
All people living on earth are individuals. Therefore, their self-evaluation may differ. Some believe that they are perfect people who do not need to do anything to change their personal potential. Others, on the contrary, aspire to knowledge and believe they have done very little to achieve a certain perfection and aspire to reach their best selves. The latter clearly aims to actively cultivate a growth and positive mindset.
Self-improvement is a process that can be activated if the person is willing to evolve in a new dimension, thus cultivating their growth mindset with a consistent dose of self-awareness.
A growth mindset and self-awareness are prerequisites for a fulfilling life.
Both can be cultivated and improved with coaching, and external help consisting of a series of powerful questions to challenge your thoughts, feelings, and actions to break old patterns and create new atomic habits for personal and professional success.
5 Pillars for Personal Development
Self-improvement or personal development is a realm that is deeply analyzed and investigated by Positive Psychology, a branch of Psychology in opposition to the traditional one.
Conventionally therapeutic psychology takes people from -10, barely surviving, to 0 just about surviving. Whereas Positive psychology brings you to +10 thriving. Martin Seligman, an American psychologist, and writer is considered the founder and father of Positive Psychology.
Now, we will look in detail at the theory of well-being, also known as the Perma Model.
“PERMA” is an acronym that stands for Positive Emotions, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning, and Accomplishment, which represents the five pillars that human beings need to nurture and improve, to reach the level of a successful and fulfilling life.
The PERMA Model is, essentially, a theory of unforced choice. It is a description of what people freely choose to increase their well-being. This model brings together the basics and indicators of well-being to be able to feel good, be positive, and maintain this attitude and feeling for as long as possible throughout life.
PERMA is an acronym that encapsulates the 5 main factors on which this theory is based. Thus, developing and improving each of them will be of great help in increasing new levels of satisfaction and motivation.
Each element of the PERMA model must meet certain properties to be considered part of the theory:
1. It must contribute to welfare.
2. People must choose it for its own sake and not just as a method to achieve any of the other variables.
3. It must be defined and measured independently of the other variables in the model.
P - Positive Emotions
Positive Emotions represent the first pillar elaborated by Seligman’s Formula.
This point is to amplify positive emotions, not to mask negative ones, but to use the former as a tool to overcome the latter.
Positive emotions enable us to feel life satisfaction and remain optimistic in spite of adverse circumstances. Some examples may be love, joy, gratitude, pride and hope.
E - Engagement
It is a covenant we have to make with ourselves, with our potential and strengths. The goal is to achieve balance and enter a state of flow, or optimal activation.
We usually reach the state of flow, or flow, when we are focused on an activity and experience a kind of "stopping time." It is, therefore, a matter of engaging in seeking activities that immerse us in this state.
R - Relationship (Positive Relationships)
As social beings, relationships are irreplaceable sources of well-being and satisfaction because they offer support and protection.
Establishing satisfying relationships is necessary for proper personal growth. Therefore, we must attend to relationships with family, friends, colleagues, etc.
Within this factor of improving social relationships, we must also include improving our social skills and tools.
M - Meaning and Purpose
This factor refers to the search for belonging to something greater than ourselves. It entails the idea that the meaning in our lives goes beyond the concept of ourselves. In this way, for every goal achieved, for every aim attained, there underlies a relevant meaning that pervades it with transcendental significance. We all need to make sense of our lives in order to achieve a sense of well-being.
A - Accomplishment
Success and a sense of accomplishment involve setting goals, which when achieved will serve to make us feel competent, promoting our autonomy. It refers to the achievement of goals in relation to improving our abilities.
How development plans can accelerate personal growth
“A goal without a plan is just a wish”
To set a possible future self that we want to achieve personally and professionally, a clear plan is key to long-lasting success.
Generally, the drafting of a development plan involves all professionals who aspire to development related to their role. The development of individuals is holistic and we can set plans to accelerate our personal and professional development with different tools in the market.
In a plan, an individual can set and explore strengths and areas for improvement.
A development plan is designed to
Increase personal and professional awareness of individuals’ performance and potential;
Identify targeted development actions based on your profile or a target profile;
Identify the most effective actions to be implemented in your life and in your workplace.
The personal development plan can match with a leadership development plan, a customized goal-setting tool so that personal growth can coincide with the achievement of a personal or professional goal or the desire to develop specific soft skills.
In order to ensure the effectiveness of the plan, this must be outlined clearly and objectively. For this reason, in addition to qualitative indicators, quantitative ones are indispensable. In 2023, there are digital goal-setting tools that allow you to set and track your progress on your development journey.
The great solution, once you have chosen the best digital coaching tool for your needs, is to select the development goals that you desire to improve with a 90-day deadline, distinguished by characteristics of specificity, measurability, attainability, reality, and temporality.
Individual development plans, to be fruitful, must be part of a broader ongoing project.

Do not be controlled by what you cannot control 😶🌫️
We receive so much input each day: bad news from the stock markets, pandemics, and the media. Not to mention that coworker who is always bringing down your morale and making it so difficult to handle every workday!
The amount of input we receive daily can be overwhelming and can be very confusing if you don’t know where to start to order and prioritize the things which deserve our time and energy.
The feeling that we are often running out of time because we have the next task to achieve, doesn’t leave us the space to clearly reflect upon our lives.
All of us have limited time each day and the way we channel our energy is so fundamental to staying on track, staying motivated, and preserving our precious energy. 🤗
For this reason, to begin to have a fulfilled life it is vital to know the three circles of control and influence.
This awareness will save you a lot of worry and help you work on the right things.
🟢The first circle is the area of your life which is within your control. Everything that happens in this area depends solely on you.Here, you have total power, and you decide how to behave, what to do, and what not to do, and, depending on your choices, you reap the rewards.
🟡The second circle is an area of semi-influence, where your will and the will of others intersect. This is the area of relationships and interactions, where leadership is also exercised.This is where you can think about your relationship with others.
🔴The third area includes all those situations or people that are completely outside your sphere of influence and over which you have no control.Therefore, all events and people that fall into this area are absolutely not dependent on you and neither do they deserve a negative expenditure of your energy.
We frequently hear about the tangible impact of a growth mindset on life and career. You can read everywhere that by adopting a growth mindset, you will enhance your wellbeing, become more successful and create a fulfilling life.
Everybody is talking about it, but how can we improve our positive mindset practically?
Before diving into it, and finding out a simple way to improve our positive mindset,
let’s make sure we understand what mindset stands for and how a growth one generates success. 🪄
WHAT IS MINDSET?
In the 2007 book "Mindset", the famous Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck states that mindset – rather than intelligence, talent or education – is that which distinguishes successful people from those who do not fare so well. The term mindset refers to an individual's habitual state of mind. This plays a key role in the way you carry out daily tasks, make decisions and face challenges.
We can define mindset as the way you react to situations in life.
The change in mindset is the starting point to support all the difficult and brave choices you will face as an entrepreneur or professional. This means that all the tools you need to achieve your career goals are already inside you.
However, for most people it’s a question of unlocking that which is already inside.
Let me give you an example.
If you are convinced that you cannot speak in public, this mindset will lead you to avoid all occasions when you need to show your skills in front of others. However, this mindset is bad for you because it makes you deeply insecure and if you don't change it with time, you will be more and more inclined to turn down opportunities for the fear of making mistakes.
FIXED AND GROWTH MINDSET
According to Dweck, all individuals fall into one of two categories: those who have a fixed mindset and those who have a growth mindset.
Fixed mindset. Those with a fixed mindset think that their qualities, such as intelligence, logic or talent are fixed, immutable qualities.
Growth mindset. Those who think that one's basic qualities and skills can be enhanced and refined through study and practice.
Having a fixed mindset can keep you from fulfilling your potential,whereas a growth mindset can help you achieve your goals. In the opinion of Carol Dweck, your mindset can influence your life much more than your intelligence or talent.
It is therefore essential to fully understand the difference between having a fixed mindset and a growth mindset.
Find out more about Carol Dweck and her researches on mindset here
Do you have a fixed mindset?
Those who have a fixed mindset believe that people were born with a certain level of intelligence, certain inclinations, qualities and talents that you absolutely cannot change.
You could have a fixed mindset if you…
🥱 Give up easily
You think it is useless to be optimistic because success is already predetermined.
😨 Have a fear of challenges
You do not see difficulties as learning experiences, but instead fear losing social approval if you "fail".
😟 Seek approval
You have a strong need to be seen as intelligent and talented. As a result, you always feel the eyes of others on you.
If you have a fixed mindset, you will probably be afraid of not being smart or talented enough to achieve your goals.
Worse still, a manager with a fixed mindset may fear that his team members' achievements will exceed his or her own. If they notice that a team member spots an opportunity that they themselves did not see, they perceive it as a threat. They may even thwart the growth of their team, to avoid being singled out as managers with no skills.
The good news is that the mindset can be trained like any other our muscles!
Those with a growth mindset think that intelligence and skills are not innate but are developed through hard work, persistence, resilience, and learning from one's mistakes!
The growth mindset is based on the belief that it is always possible to improve oneself. If you have a growth mindset you believe that with effort, perseverance, and passion you can develop both your innate qualities and new skills.
The concept Dweck introduces is that of intentional engagement, i.e., the ability to use feedback and mistakes as opportunities to improve, enjoy the learning process and become more effective and productive.
With a growth mindset, you most likely also believe that you can overcome any obstacle: you simply decide to learn from experience, work harder and try again until you reach your goals.
How can the growth mindset lead to success?
The growth mindset is a quality that can be useful in every field,especially in professional development.
When you realize your full capabilities and potential as a person, this not only impacts your private life, but also has a profound effect on a work team or a company.
Employees who train their growth mindsets are very willing to leap out of the comfort zone. These employees will be able to build working relationships based on innovation, on the courage to take risks and to create something new and productive, so that the individual results obtained will benefit the whole company.
The same is true for a leader who trains a growth mindset.
Leadership based on the growth mindset can become a huge asset during difficult times. Leaders with the right mindset empower everyone to succeed and grow. They instill a culture of success in the organization and show employees the way, giving them confidence and encouraging team members to constantly refine their skills and bring to light talents they did not know they had.
Today, the market and the business world require all entrepreneurs and professionals to be able to make quick decisions and get involved with innovation and technologies. It is essential, therefore, that leaders and managers work consciously to develop and sustain a growth mindset in their employees, themselves and their organizations.
Developing a growth mindset requires commitment and also courage.
One great piece of news is that Dweck has based much of her research on the theory of neuroplasticity, i.e., the brain's ability to continue forming new connections in adulthood, even after it has been damaged or when stimulated by new experiences.
The theory supports the idea that one can adopt a growth mindset at anytime in life.The only real difference between the two types of mindsets is action taken vs action never taken, due to fear and uncertainty about leaving the comfort zone. That is why a growth mindset is closely connected to coaching.
