MANY WAYS TO STIMULATE PERSONAL GROWTH!!!

personal-growth-22

If you are happy with what you are currently doing and your future seems bright then personal growth may not be necessary since you are already growing in the right direction. If you are somewhat discontented with your present status in life then a little personal growth may be what is needed.

To personally grow that basically means researching NEW knowledge, acquiring NEW skills, and experiencing NEW things and not doing the standard things which you like and avoiding what you dislike. To grow you need to stretch yourself beyond your present good and bad habits by doing something NEW or different.

Grow in selfawareness by not only reflecting on what you like or dislike but also by reflecting on your status or situation in the world around you. Being aware of your needs and wants and your personality weaknesses and strengths is important and you get there with much introspection and time spent alone to think. Real selfawareness means that you realistically assess what you can and can’t do now and in the future and decide what you would like to do in the future which is highly possible or probable.

Motivation to grow ultimately comes from within but external motivators such as good friends can also begin you on a path to personal growth. This is why it is important to try and associate with humans who are great or good role model humans. Just as important is to try and avoid or exclude humans from your life who are bad role models or have too many bad habits which can begin to rub off on you if you associate with them for too long.

Try to go outside your comfort zone and meet new humans which can even be friends of friends. With new friends might come new opportunities to do something different and engage in new experiences and new opinions and beliefs.

New experiences offer the opportunity to learn new things and interact with new humans who are passionate about what they are doing. A new hobby, traveling to new locations, joining a club or organization, volunteering, developing an interest in therapeutic nature on the internet and in person, and researching a new topic on the internet or reading a new book can all result in personal growth and an exposure to new opportunities and activities.

Declutter your life of many old possessions which you are not using on a regular basis and you will sense some liberation from the past. Watch much less drama TV where humans fight, argue, complain, and backstab and where we learn nothing new about the good life which we would actually want to lead.

All the above are ways to stimulate personal growth and the best time to start on that path is right now! Ultimately you are the one who has to make a conscious decision to act a little differently and grow into uncharted territory. What we are really asking of you to do is to rekindle that sense of childhood CURIOSITY about the world around you.

If you are rather old, jaded, and think that there is nothing new under the sun and that you already know everything useful then stimulating your CURIOSITY may be a lost cause and personal growth is out of the question. I personally don’t believe that an old human can’t learn something new which will benefit them in some way. New learning is definitely a way of staying mentally young and active on into old age.

The most important principle of personal growth is to BE CURIOUS and to maintain that CURIOSITY until the day that you die! Starting to ask questions about the world around you is a good way to start!

THE TRUTH ABOUT INTERESTEV*

download

Interestev: v. to sense an exciting subset(s) which can maintain attention and/or curiosity frequently because samer subset(s) is (new and/or strange) and/or (pleasant and/or deviant)

 

Interestev is the potentially new word for in the verb interest which has a definition more accurate and complete than just excite curiosity or attention. The real necessity for its usage is because interest as a noun must be unique without multiple meanings and I have chosen to define interest as a percentage to be added or subtracted from a money quantity(s).

Something interesteving frequently gives us pleasant feelings when we use our senses to interact with that something. Sometimes what is interesteving is new, strange or unusual, and it may be a deviant behavior which we have not been exposed to very much and may have a curiosity to find out more about it.

Humans depending on their past experiences and general exposure to the world will find things interesteving at different points in their lives and usually only once they have been exposed to the interesteving subset(s).

The more utilitarian or the more useful the interesteving subset(s) is in the life of the human the longer it will stay that way and occasionally we may even develop a passionate interesten in it with the passage of time because pleasure may grow into liking or even loving of the interesteving subset(s).

THE TRUTH ABOUT INQUISITIVENESS+

Quotation-Tom-Robbins-curiosity-Meetville-Quotes-58974

Inquisitiveness: n. eager for useful knowledge and frequently one who listens well and asks many questions

Offspring are very inquisitive, are always asking questions and exploring the world filled with curiosity, and have a basic desire to know what is going on around them.

Adults who have journeyed through educational, financial, social, and relationship traps and trials often have lost their desire to acquire new useful knowledge and their curiosity is severely limited to their own myopic interests and experiences.

The lucky few are the perpetually curious who want to improve on their knowledge, skills, and experiences at almost every opportunity and at any age.

The little known key to lifelong mental youth is to be perpetually curious with an unrelenting thirst for new useful knowledge in many fields of interest no matter what your age.

THE TRUTH ABOUT CURIOSITY

images

Curiosity: n. a desire to acquire new knowledge and/or experiences

Are you stuck in a rut or are bored with your existence and don’t know how to escape it? If this is true then chances are that you may have lost your curiosity or a desire to learn and experience new knowledge and new experiences.

There is superficial curiosity and detailed curiosity and if you just have superficial curiosity then you will usually not get past the propaganda in every field of interest and you will just reaffirm many of your old opinions and prejudices and follow celebrity viewpoints.

If you have detailed curiosity then you will learn new words which apply to an area of interest and you will start developing a more detailed understanding. Detailed curiosity is frequently hard work because you will frequently be going to the dictionary to learn new words and concepts. Even detailed curiosity will not necessarily lead to a better understanding of the area which you are interested in because there are frequently professional vague buzz words which are used to obscure reality and are just expressions of biased opinions which make professionals seem more knowledgeable than they actually are.

Take the stock market as an example. You may start off by reading popular investment books and find out that there are many details, new words, or fundamentals which are written about such as tangible assets, PE ratios, dividends, sectors, hedges, historical average performance, volatility, channeling, indexes, volume, profit, loss, calls, puts, Fibonachi numbers, algorithms, investment aids, etc. and you will get so involved in minutia details that you won’t understand the big picture and the basic fact that stock prices are unpredictable to a large extent and depend on big money investors and fast computers.

The stock market is in fact is being manipulated unfairly causing volatility and the dropping and rising of stock prices for no logical reason whatsoever. The big secret or deception is that the modern stock market is mostly a gambling scam invented to make you lose your money in the short and long duration with very few exceptions.

If you are an average or even millionaire investor then the odds of you making a profit in the stock market are against you no matter what you do because the stock market is basically unpredictable and no amount of detailed information will change that basic fact or big picture unless you have inside information and know where the big wealthy boys are putting their money next.

The only certainty in the stock market is that big corporations will not go out of business overnight and that their stock prices will probably not drop to zero overnight.

I have an insatiable curiosity and want to know the truth about every important subject imaginable and am blogging about what I have discovered over a lifetime. My over 600 evergreen truth blogs and my 17 evergreen truth books are the fruits of my curiosity filtered through a no nonsense logical mind trained in a math and science background and applied to the real non- scientific world also. You may disagree with some of my views but it will usually not be boring.

I have found that my curiosity frequently uncovers just more BS as I delve deeper into any subject matter including theoretical physics. After all that curiosity and writing I am finding out that I am beginning to repeat myself with few new worlds to logically conquer or understand. My search for the new and interesting frequently runs into stuff which I already know about and I am finding fewer and fewer diamonds of information worthy for recording or writing about.

Curiosity will make you drown in a world of BS which you will think is the truth and you will form many untrue opinions and beliefs if you don’t have a logical mind. Curiosity will probably entertain you and you will seldom be bored but if you want to separate fact from fiction then read my writings as much as possible or stay away from verbosity.

Search my website for THE TRUTH ABOUT dating, friendship, marriage, empathy, politics, education, money, technology, justice, truth, etc. and you will find more than a handful of interesting realistic insights and facts about the mythology and deceptions which are rampant in human civilization.

To satisfy your curiosity it is not so important to read a great quantity of information on a subject but it is more important to read quality information. To do so you have to be very selective in what you read and whose writing you read.

Titles of blogs and articles will frequently give you a good hint of whether you will find something interesting and informative to read. Since I have such a great wealth of knowledge I find that I read only about one article in a hundred on websites such as popsci.com, phys.org, and huffingtonpost.com and watch about one in three videos on websites such as Ted.com.

An important question to ask before you read is- Will I learn something really new? or Is it just an article which will reinforce what I already know or believe with much verbosity? In the liberal arts, politics, economics, sociology, education, sports, etc. the longer the article, the more useless verbosity you will probably find in it.

Being curious should mean that you are looking for gems to read about and not mediocre verbose ego trips by authors who have one sentence of useful information to offer you and spend hundreds of words embellishing that information wasting most of your time.

Cutting through verbose crap is not easy and sometimes Googling what you are interested in will give you much more relevant information more quickly. I personally like lists of information about something such as Googling 10 dating mistakes or 10 tips for preventing divorce which automatically gives more than one useful piece of information about what to avoid when dating or tips on how to prevent divorce. Lists will frequently cut through the feel good verbose crap and give you many useful facts which you can apply to your life right away.

CONCLUSION:

Curiosity is a useful motivating factor but just like anything else there is just being curious about anything and selectively being curious and optimizing the benefits of that curiosity. There is a big difference between random largely useless curiosity and purposeful useful directed curiosity. Knowing the difference and making some reading rules to follow can give you quality results and save you much time, energy, money, and effort.
