It really doesn’t take much to get started with personal development. There are few required fundamentals for personal growth. You don’t need to have your life together (that’s kind of the point). Neither do you need to be super smart or outgoing. You don’t need to be motivated (which you shouldn’t rely on anyway). Heck, you don’t even have to believe in yourself or any of it to get started although you’ll probably have to eventually.
There are however three main fundamentals for personal growth to occur. Without these three things, personal growth is nearly impossible unless, of course, it involves realizing, accepting, and implementing these things into our lives.
If you are involved in personal growth, these things should naturally occur. The sooner you can use these fundamentals, the sooner and better you can start seeing personal growth in yourself and your life.
