Self development and personality building
Self development skills Self-development and character building need several skills, namely:
Setting goals and seeking to achieve them: This needs to develop an appropriate plan and start implementing it to reach the drawn end.
As the goals differ in their importance, there is the important thing, and there is the most important. Therefore, the individual must live in the circle of important matters and implement them, leaving unimportant activities, and this would achieve his goals in less time and with higher efficiency.
Learning to work and not just to learn:
Learning itself is very important, but it becomes useless and a heavy burden if a person does not work with it. Therefore, the individual must use what he learns to serve himself and his community. Upgrading thinking: sound thinking is what distinguishes a person from others, and it is a skill that needs training and a necessity for the individual’s advancement and development, in which one can overcome his problems and improve his conditions. Sowing optimism in the soul: positivity is important for development, and positive energy keeps the soul away from a feeling of frustration and defeat, which increases the effectiveness and achievement of the individual and enhances the entrepreneurial spirit within it.
Development and success start from within the individual and therefore he has to trust his abilities and enhance his self-confidence and capabilities, and this is what makes him master his work and succeed in his life.
Listening to others and reducing speech as possible because good listening increases the opportunity to learn and gain experience from others.
Improving relationships with others, respecting them, observing them and dialogue with them, while reducing positive expectations from them, which increases the chances of benefiting from them.
Balance in the various aspects of life, as the complexities of life and the enlargement of its requirements may cause tension and frustration at times, and therefore an individual must balance his relationships with his work and all aspects of his life to suit his personality.
Focusing efforts on an aspect of the personality in which the individual finds himself in such a way that he does not give his time to everything and then goes out with nothing and continues to develop this aspect, which increases the chances of development and achieving the goal.
Self-confidence and its relationship to self-development. Self-development requires personal strength and self-confidence, and this is what workers and those interested in this field focus on.
Self-confidence is an advantage of strong personalities, and it is an important factor for success, excellence, and self-development.

The feeling that an individual feels about himself, which enables him to act and speak without hesitation or fear so that he does not care about the reactions of others, he behaves and makes his own decisions and it stems from the person’s respect for himself
Types of self-confidence There are two types of self-confidence:
Absolute self-confidence: The person who has this kind of confidence has the ability to face all the stresses and problems he is exposed to in life and does not give up easily as he accepts failure or error, as it is based on strong justifications.
Self-defined confidence: What distinguishes this confidence is that it does not appear in all situations, according to the person’s appreciation of the situation he is exposed to, he appreciates and knows his capabilities.
