On this Golden Nugget of The ROI Online Podcast, global business coach, business owner, and author Robert Clinkenbeard will explain how can we measure personal growth.
One of the major indicators that someone is constantly working on themselves and applying self-development skills, is if they are always looking to learn more.
They may also be reading books, attending seminars or workshops, or seek out mentors.
Another sign to look for is when people are actively engaged in a personal development project. This could include writing a book about their journey through life or trying something new like taking up horseback riding.
If you notice that someone has these traits then you can feel confident that they are not just going through the motions but rather continually striving for personal growth.
These people also recognize their strengths and weaknesses so they know what to work on next. If you want to measure personal growth then start by identifying these five signs!

The small stuff does not bother you anymore
You are not easily frustrated and you can let things go. You have learned that it is impossible to please everyone so you keep your focus on making yourself happy.
You are self-aware and accepting of who you are. You know what your strengths and weaknesses are, which means that you can work on whichever one will make the biggest difference in your life.
You are conscious that you don't get a second life and that you should take the time to appreciate what you have and be grateful for it.
Development is an ongoing process that helps people achieve their true potential. It can be difficult for individuals to evaluate themselves and identify areas where they need growth.
Kindness and compassion are qualities you possess and not only that, you wish to spread them and make a positive impact in the world you live in. You want your life to be one that is filled with meaning and purpose.
Robert shares with us the thought that you can have great conversations when you're around business owners or just other people in the community that constantly work on growing and developing themselves.
"They are aware of what's going on in the world and the community. They give back and, and communicate intelligently, and you feel like you're always learning something when you're around them."
You feel sure and comfortable with yourself and with the choices you make in life. You inspire other people to follow their dreams and achieve their goals.
And an extra one – you take care of yourself and value your time. It's difficult at first, but establishing boundaries with people who ask too much from you or be negative about your accomplishments is important.
Personal growth is usually more easily measured when you take the steps to make it so.
It's not as easy if your goals are shaky and vague - but once you know exactly what they are, everything becomes easier. Keep in mind that success doesn't end at achieving a goal- there will be other achievements just waiting for us!

You can measure personal growth by the way people treat you.
You'll know when a person has reached their own personal breakthroughs because they will be more accepting of themselves and those around them. They also won't need to prove anything or show off how smart they are, as they're confident in who they are.
Knowing you're on the right path can be tricky, especially when life is filled with both ups and downs.
But if you see that some of these signs are true for you too- then keep going! You're becoming a better version of yourself every day because this journey will change who you are as a person in such an amazing way.
For some, personal growth feels like a slow and constant process. For others it is sudden and cyclical- we have to feel the confusion and discomfort of staying where we are before being ready to usher in all that can be.
Learn how to break out of your comfort zone and understand what it means to grow personally. Also, find out why personal growth is important for business owners and entrepreneurs.
