Personality Development- 5 Key Barriers To Overcome

Are you constantly improving yourself? If yes, you are only 50% successful. If it’s the other way, you must immediately start doing so. Whatsoever, the most important thing in personality development is not just strengthening your capabilities but facing the challenges. Remember that the negative things in our lives make us stronger than our achievements- something which we don’t realise easily. So, as responsible developers of your own personality, you must be ready to win over the following hindrances of self improvement.

1. Ego

The three-letter word is the strongest killer of your self development initiatives. At times, while working on personality traits, people tend to ignore their egoistic features. Resultant, they remain the same person despite numerous efforts of self development in every sphere of their lives.

You might be unaware but ego is a virus that’s constantly feeding on your positive qualities and attributes. It only takes you towards negativity and prevents you from achieving your growth goals. You become less acceptable to others and people start avoiding you despite your goodness.

2. Lack Of Clarity And Life Goals

You have planned to give a fresh boost to your personality and that’s great. But, how shall you be doing it? Most people do not even have proper vision and mindset about self improvement. So, the entire idea of personality advancement remains in their cerebrum only. They keep talking about strengthening their behaviour and attitude while being consciously negligent about executing the self development plans. And the few ones who frame strategies or at least identify their weak areas, lack sufficient clarify about their wants and aspirations. Hence, they are unable to accomplish their growth goals and become redundant.

3. Negative Attitude Towards Personality Development

The world abounds with excellent planners but poor executors. The same theory is also applicable in this context. Some individuals definitely frame the best personality development strategies. However, they pay a huge price due to their negative attitude towards themselves and the world.

Whether they do it consciously or not, negativism creates lots of problems for their personality. Besides taking the loved ones away, negative behavior encourages overconfidence, drives selfishness and reduces the good skills and qualities to a nil. Ultimately, it deteriorates the self improvement aspects of human beings.

4. No Motivation Or Strong Support During Personality Development

Like any other activities, personality development demands continuous support from family, friends and acquaintances. At every moment, you need to reflect on your improvements with the help of your near and dear ones. Unless you get motivated, it is difficult to cut through the clutter and become successful in self improvement.

In most cases, people undergoing the development process, do not get their desired response from others. Due to this, they either stop thinking about development or move in the wrong direction. Either way, it hampers the growth goals leaving no change in the personality features.    

5. Non-Accountability In Personality Improvement

People often refrain from taking the responsibility of faulty implementation of growth goals. They try to ignore their weaknesses or cannot accumulate enough strength to fight back. They also do not realise that all personality development plans might not produce the desired results. Notwithstanding the outcome, they must strive hard for developing their nature and qualities. Some other individuals give the best excuse- “luck” and unconsciously turn away from responsibility. Such a measure proves to be counter-productive to the self development process as it provides an easily available ground to be blamed for any failure.
