Personal Development Plan Sample
Summary

In keeping with my "simple" theme for this article, I'm keeping the article short.

However, there's one more thing to keep in mind with your personal development plan and that is to stay positive in planning, implementing and executing your plans.

Emotions play a big part in your personal development plan because when you can keep your mind positive and focused on what you want (instead of what you don't want,) it physically changes your ability to come up with answers faster BECAUSE...

A positive mind creates new neural networks faster...

Which allows your mind to “play, experiment and come up with answers” faster! Your mind is brilliant when it comes to finding answers, when you allow it to remain positive and unhindered.

Keeping your personal development plan simple and emotionally stable are both key to your overall development.
