Personal development and growth is closely related to the constant evolution of the self. We aim to develop those qualities we consider important in a good human being. However, personal development is also about helping other people.
When we improve our character, our emotional intelligence or our intellectual capacity or when we figure out our purpose and how to express it through our passions, we become our own contribution to the world. By the simple act of not contributing in a negative manner and set an example to others around us, we become a positive factor.
There’s nothing wrong if this is as far as you want to go regarding the contribution you make to the world. But if we really want to contribute to improving not only ourselves, but the lives of those around us, our community and ultimately our world, can we say this is enough? I don’t think so.
