5 Ways To Accelerate Your Professional Growth

There’s no big idea

We all want to have a sense of purpose and direction in life, but the matter of fact is, there isn’t a “big” idea that is going to cut it. Our happiness really is a fragment of many little things. Once we realise that, we can begin to implement changes and adopt new habits that will make our lives more meaningful.

Conquer your fears

Stop running and face them head on. There is no point in avoiding things that make you irrationally afraid. It could literally be anything – from cockroaches to public speaking. If it’s not something that puts you in harm’s way, soldier up and get to it. It will have a positive impact on your life and many doors will open once you cross that hurdle.

Acknowledge your mistakes

The first step to recovery is by admitting your mistakes, only then can you address the problem, and seek out a solution. Have an internal dialogue with yourself and be honest about all your shortcomings and follies. It may leave you feeling crappy for a while, but you’ll feel much better after getting off your feet and doing something about it.


Learn to love discipline

All successful people attribute a big part of their accomplishments to discipline. Good habits enforced by discipline produce results because they require consistency and commitment. When you repeat something often enough, you will eventually get fantastic at it. We suggest you try reading 10,000 Hours of Practice by author Malcolm Gladwell.

Conduct yourself with integrity

Integrity is a lot like loyalty. It is something you can only expect from yourself, not others. Do right by people, and take the high road in difficult situations. Leading by example will inspire others to do the same and the world will be a better place.


Believe in yourself

So cliché but true, because if you don’t believe in yourself, who else will? You’ve gotta convince yourself that there is nothing you can’t do, so that when opportunity comes knocking, you’re ready to give it your all.

How To Start Your Day Better


I have a bad habit of snoozing the alarm, jumping out of bed, and making a dash for work in the morning, all the time. I don’t know about you, but I got tired of starting my days like this. I’m also sure that since you clicked on this article, you too are looking to spruce up your morning routine, and I am ever willing to share!

Your first thoughts every morning

Don’t spoil your day by incessantly planning or worrying about things you have to get done when you get out of bed.

Keep it positive, take a moment, and meditate or give thanks for all the good that has happened to you. You may carry out your tasks with more clarity, and find yourself being calmer than usual in stressful situations too.


Pen it down

Pour your heart out in paper. Write about how you’re feeling without prejudice or censorship, and all that you are grateful and hopeful for.


Be present

Get rid of the racing and jumbled thoughts in your head by taking in your surroundings and relaxing for a few minutes. Be in the moment by focusing on your five senses – sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch.


Power of visualisation

Do not underestimate the power of visualisation. Many successful people across all kinds of industries have practiced and benefitted from it. Think about what you want as vividly as possible and the universe will provide, if you put in the work, of course.


Read something inspirational

Motivation is a lot like taking a bath; something you have to do repeatedly. It’s not something you just wake up with everyday. You have to be proactive about it.

Start a collection of inspirational books and quotes. Read them each morning for a bit of inspiration and the motivation will follow.


Move your body

Do some gentle stretching, yoga, or dance around to an upbeat song. It will help elevate your mood and wake your body up. My personal favorite way to start the day.


Pick one or two and start incorporating them into your morning routine. Explore internet-surfing possibilities with Digi or simply visit to learn more, and share this article with others to inspire them!
