Sense of self

Sense of direction

It improves your ability to prioritize and it makes decision-making easier.

It also provides commitment: it's usually hard to commit to something that has no foreseeable future.

Sense of follow-through

Where there's a will there's a way.

Even when you don't like the things you're doing, seeing the benefit of following through on them makes it easier to take action for your desired results.

Sense of urgency

It prompts you to act quickly when making decisions. It also drives hard work.

Urgency is all about getting results quickly and efficiently, but it does not eliminate assessment.

Sense of resilience

It provides you with the patience, awareness and fortitude to continue moving forward, even if that means completely changing course.

Sense of connectedness

Taking the path of personal development means you'll be able to see which relationships and partnerships bring value and are worth investing in and which you need to cut loose.
