Mindset | Personal Development vs. Self-Improvement vs. Self-Help | Note 300

It is the conscious pursuit of personal growth for me.

Three hundred notes! Wow! I have really produced 300 bite-sized notes. 

I wasn’t sure what I wanted to say or do for the 300 note of the Sincerely HER Podcast, but it hit me. Why not share what I’ve learned in my pursuit to help you find clarity, get sh*t done, and win.

So instead of my Friday affirmations, today I’m not only dropping an interview on the podcast that I did with my big sister and mentor, but I’m also going to share a few of my thoughts on what I have learned about increasing your personal growth.

Going into this, all of it, I just wanted to help people. I wanted to share my knowledge and some of the motivational notes I write to myself. I wanted to bring to light some things I learned on my self-fulfillment journey of self-help. 

What I discovered was a new me. I also found an unbelievable amount of clarity regarding who I am and where I’m going. 

I also revisited the meanings of Personal Development, self-improvement, and self-help. 

You may have noticed some slight changes with the description of this podcast, the category, and even the cover photo over the 300 episodes. The changes are because of my ever-evolving education on the true meaning of motivation and how I can help people through personal development. 

I have read so much on the topic, and what I believe is personal development is the process that leads to achieving self-improvement. Personal development is the how, and self-improvement is the what. 

Personal development helps develop capabilities, enhance your quality of life, and the realization of your dreams and aspirations. Self-improvement focuses on the outcome of all of this. It is the conscious pursuit of personal growth.


Personal development usually involves some outside help from someone like me to help someone like you who is seeking self-improvement to upgrade certain areas of your life on your own. It’s about focusing on your inner self. Self-development starts with self-awareness. 

Successful people make time for their personal development and growth to make sure they are understood and reach their highest potential. 

So, since you are here on this pilgrimage with me. You are successful. You have enough self-awareness to strive to be the best you possible. You are doing what it takes to increase your self-improvement, and I thank you for allowing me a small spot to tag along on your journey.
