  • Sample Personal Development Plan and Workbook on Sep. 22, 2011

    Jerry Lopper’s Sample Personal Development Plan and Workbook is a short, but fully stocked book designed to help personal growth and to ultimately find happiness and purpose. It is for anyone who seeks to improve their quality of living. Beginning with a personal questionnaire to help readers define which areas of life need improvement, the workbook helps readers properly focus from the onset. The book is structured on eighteen modules, each one defining a different aspect of life – an area of potential improvement – and offering practical advice. The workbook emphasizes the idea that one needs to choose to change – something many readers may not yet understand. The book digs deep when it comes to personal problems, and some readers may find it difficult, at first, to comply with the book’s suggestions. This is a good thing, as it means that the concepts presented in the development plan can truly touch people. The Sample Personal Development Plan is comprehensive in that it includes advice and practical activities on a wide range of personal issues, from mind and body health, to relationships, to emotional health. The workbook helps readers learn positive attitudes and actions, as well as healthy lifestyles both for their body and their mind. The workbook neither sways away from, nor mocks, nor embraces the idea that a life purpose is given by God. Rather, it helps to find meaning through the things people do that make them who they are. Regardless, the development plan includes several aspects discussed in the New Testament – qualities and behaviours that are inbred in good people, whether they know it is Biblical or not – and that is admirable. Jerry Lopper’s understanding of the importance of beliefs and values, as well as the ability to quiet one’s mind and refocus life, shows through the writing. The Sample Personal Development Plan is well supported, as it references and suggests several other books which may be useful in learning to set proper goals and values and living well in general.
