The four stages of personal development

  • Discovery: We all go through periods of darkness and challenge and is where most of us discover the power of self-development.
  • Consumption: Once you discover the world of personal development, you start reading books, blogs, listen to podcasts, watch documentaries.
  • Application: At some point, you want to live what you’ve learned; you embody the knowledge you’ve acquired.
  • Teaching: Once you’ve learned and applied your knowledge successfully, you want to share it with others. Just by setting the right example, you’re inspiring others how to do the same.
