Everyone has their own individualized potential for self-growth, or improvement. As each person is different, everyone’s journey cannot be the same when it comes to making oneself better. Inpatient Vicodin rehab centers, physical therapy, and other types of institutions are common for a model of self-growth.
Self-growth of is definitely not limited to people making changes because of physical issues. In fact, the more common topic of self-growth deals with young kids who are starting to find out about themselves as they transition into adult hood. In the spirit of creating plans, goals, and aspirations, some experimentation gets involved when you’re learning about yourself. In the path of self-improvement, more often than not, failure will lead to success. Whether you realize it or not, everyone is changing all the time, but it’s up to you to figure how much effort will go into making changes and growing.
Around the time you graduate high school and decide if you will take that next step to college or another form of higher education, someone probably asked you “what do you want to do?” Statistically, if you were to ask someone that, they probably wouldn’t know. An estimated 20 to 50 percent of students enter college as “undecided” and an estimated 75 percent of students change their major at least once before graduation. It’s important to note that most students will change their minds at least once. The reason for that is they tried something, and ended up not liking it, thus learning something about themselves, and grew as a person. It’s hard to know and learn things without trying anything different.
While college life, or just life after high school in general, is part of personal growth, many college applications ask potential students to write about their personal growth early on. It’s used as a way to gain insight on whether or not you are mentally ready or mature enough to take the next step. It’s a very common essay topic that should not generate bland responses, as everyone is different. So what could a potential college admissions person look for in someone’s essay on personal growth?
Self-improvement or growth is not necessarily measured in achievements or failures, but rather experiences. An example is from the movie “21” the story about the MIT students who would head to Las Vegas once in a while to count cards. In the beginning of that movie, you see the protagonist sitting in front of an admissions person telling them a story about themselves or something interesting that may have given them life experience. At first he had nothing. By the end of the movie the protagonist had gone through a series of events, eventually giving him a good story to tell, but also able to describe the experience gained from it. Significant life changes such as a divorce, sudden loss of family, and traumatic events all contribute to a person’s self-growth and life experience. In some way the events affect you as a person and change the way you are, for better or worse.
The high school transition for young adults is just one of hundreds of examples where self-growth is tested. Many people wish to improve things about themselves. Just about anyone who gave themselves a New Year’s resolution is either making good on that self-improvement or learning from their failure. If you promised yourself to hit the gym everyday but caved in with McDonalds on day three, there’s still a lesson to be learned there. You can analyze what went wrong, what can be changed next time as far as motivation, and better practices for avoiding temptation. Self-growth is formed from any experience whether good or bad.
