Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate. Carl Gustav Jung
Personal Development is the conscious lifelong process regarding personal growth by expanding self-awareness, building human capital, enhancing quality of life and improving one’s skills. The realization of your dreams and aspirations can be achieved through assessing personal skills and qualities, considering your aims in life, and setting goals in order to maximize your potential.
Personal development evolution is not measured by financial or social power, even though the two can be an outcome of your plan. Instead it is determined by your efforts to grow spiritually, intellectually and physically. At the level of the individual, personal development includes the following steps towards a higher purpose: Improving: self-awareness, self-knowledge, wealth, the quality of life, health, social abilities Building or renewing: self-esteem, employability, human capital Developing: strengths or talents, the spirit Fulfilling aspirations.

Clients have these things inside of them already; it is a Personal Development Coach’s role to help the client become aware of them.
Personal development is an area of practice and research. The first one includes personal development methods, learning programs, assessment systems, tools and techniques.
