If you are learning how to swim, or teaching a child how, the fastest way to teach swimming is to get into the water. Similarly, the fastest way to personality development is not to study endless books, but to get involved in doing work you love, and in the doing, you discover more of yourself.
It is in the doing that you discover yourself. ~LeAura Alderson
It is in the doing that you are expressing being. In expressing being, you’re getting to know yourself. Personal growth comes fastest, quickest and in the most memorable ways when learning is coupled with doing. Movement and action are the physiological process through which the human brain developed over the eons. Learning through movement is still very much how the brain learns best. Learning through movement is learning through doing.
Personality development occurs over time through the experiences of living your life.
Personal development is the conscious learning, implementing and growing through application and integration. You can love art and study art, but in order to paint, should you wish to be a painter, you must paint.
Our education system is antiquated and in desperate need of a major transformation. Some of the newer educational institutions are nimbly incorporating experiential learning coupled with interests based education. Many families are choosing homeschooling in order to provide this kind of learning for their children, and the benefits are often dramatically favorable.
Personality, is the integration of body, mind, emotions and soul. ~LeAura Alderson
Ultimately, personality development is the integration of body, mind, emotions and soul into a synthesis recognized as the personality. A well integrated personality is the goal of the best parenting and education. For adults, personality development continues through creativity and business.
To create, is art. To bring your creation to the world, is business. Both are creative endeavors that bring growth. Each, is a leg of your stride to success, both needed for a full step forward.
So if you’re an entrepreneur, don’t neglect incorporating beauty and artistry into your endeavor. If you’re an artist, don’t forget to include business in your endeavor. The personality integration of your business includes both, and in doing that, you develop your personality in ways you never imagined, and in ways you can never get from a book or a lecture.
It is in the doing that the way becomes more clear. ~LeAura Alderson
For some reason… “Master Yoda” just inserted his voice in my head on this one. Funny how insidious that little guy has become in our culture! May your work grow to become ubiquitous too!
[We imagine] Master Yoda says it as: Do. Find yourself you will. ⭐

Absolutely. I have taught a variety of different subjects over the years and always learn more by being the teacher than the student. Even as a parent, I always say my kids teach me more about myself than I could ever hope to teach them. We should always do more and expand beyond our comfort zone to truly discover who we are.
