How to Make Your Life Better with Personal Development Ideas

There is a correlation between personal growth and the Digital Age and what it stands for. I love gadgets and digital stuff, but does Personal Development fit in?

Well I know that the so-called digital life can mess with our ability to develop personally and grow both mentally and spiritually.

Smart phones, tablets, mobile devices, computers, laptops etc can become what we are instead of us using them for what we want. Here are some tips to improve your digital life using personal development concepts.

That is why I love technology. It can help make complicated things simple and really provides us with a way to increase our productivity.

Technology Good or Not?

However, it can also really affect us. Positively but also negatively so that our success is not guaranteed no matter how hard we work toward it.

Computers, phones, iPods etc. We are on them all the time. This means we have little time to stop and just be. Just be who we really want to be. To think. Deeply and profoundly.

The more time we spend on technology the less time we have to think for ourselves. Since I love technology and personal development along with law of attraction training, here are 10 ways to make your digital life better using personal development ideas.

In no particular order: -

  1. Read a Personal Development Book for 15 minutes each day. Put a time in your diary and do it! On a Kindle is OK.
  2. Read the newspaper less this year. Don't read the news on Google each time you go to it.
  3. Get rid of your cable subscription and use netflix instead to watch films. This will stop you watching TV because you can. How do you watch your favourite shows? Apple TV.
  4. Don't let your mobile phone ruin your life! If it rings and you are busy, let it ring. Better still put it on silent and when you are talking to someone face to face don't answer it.
  5. Create MP3 or CD's of your favourite Personal Development speaker and play them in the car. Don't listen to radio all the time.
  6. Subscribe to all your favourite Personal Development people on RSS and read their blogs without being on the web.
  7. Limit your computer time. Agree that you won't look at the computer after 10pm or before 7am.
  8. Don't reply to emails as soon as you get them. Think about what you want to say.
  9. Take time to just get away from all gadgets for 10 minutes each day. Read a book or meditate.
  10. Know that you are in charge of technology, technology is not in charge of you!

I know these are simple tips but they can have a great impact on your life and help you harness the power of the Law of Attraction to bring success and happiness into your life. Try it and let me know how you did.

Read and Learn

Another trick that's not really a trick but it is very powerful for developing the self is simply to get reading and learning.

John Maxwell is arguably one of the best personal development, self help and spiritual teachers. He has written a lot of books on success and if you have ever listened to him you know he has some amazing values.

While I think some people write books to make some money, I don't think this is what John Maxwell does. I'm sure he writes books because he wants to share his message.

So if you are stuck for some ideas on what to go and read, there's a tip that you could use!
