In a matter of hours we will be embracing a new year, goodbye 2022 hello 2023 so much have happened. Were your dreams and goals met? What are your goals and intentions moving forward? These are the typical questions that will come to mind as we reflect on the past year. Whatever you need to change in order for growth, be very intentional about it.

What is growth?

Personal growth is the process of an individual becoming aware of the ‘self’ in its entirety, followed by taking steps to address the behaviour, attitudes, values, actions and habits that they wish to change. This process starts first with ‘self-awareness’ — which allows one to see themselves honestly — and culminates in targeted changes to the self that deliver positive outcomes to the life of the individual in question.

Benefits for personal growth

Let 2023 be the year of divine growth, speed and strength, divine restoration, connections and favor from the strength of persistence within.
