Personal growth is a process that produces personal change and progress. And it starts from within you. Perhaps the most important realization that an individual can make in their quest for personal growth is that there is no single formula that defines the path to personal success.
We all have different goals and priorities, which means that different activities and attitudes will make us feel good about ourselves. We also have different natural strengths and weaknesses that are a part of our inherent personality type. Most of the weaknesses associated with any given personality type are a result of that type’s dominant function overtaking the personality to the extent that the other functions become slaves to the dominant function.
Although it is natural for every personality to be ruled by its dominant function, it becomes a problem when the supporting functions are not allowed to develop fully on their own because they are too busy serving the master. In such cases, a personality can become quite imbalanced.
The key to personal growth is to strive for balance by determining your strengths and weaknesses. A good counselor can help you realize and achieve personal growth.
