5 Awesome Ways to Boost Your Self Improvement Goals

by Molly Eovino 07/07/2019

Personal development goals require practical efforts to achieve. While it may seem as if these activities are insignificant, they quickly add up to just what you need to grow. Take the time to practice these few tips that are sure to strengthen your stand on the personal growth front.

Start with a New Hobby 

An excellent way to up your game in the personal development front is to learn something new at every chance you get. Go out of your comfort zone and find up a new hobby. Try something demanding that will compel you to go beyond your comfort zone. Any hobby that stretches you further to your breaking point will do just fine. Keep learning!

Endeavor to Read Every Day

Learning is the key to personal growth. And not just education but continuous learning. As you eat daily to grow, you should read daily to develop too. The more books you read, the denser your knowledge bank. Get good books aimed at growth and be sure to read every day.

Face Your Fears

Fear is like a roadblock that keeps you from crossing to the other side. It represents things you have never tried or things you gave up trying to accomplish. Either way, it prevents you from climbing to the next level of your growth. It is time to face your fears. Pick up those things you thought you could never do. Try again at the things that proved extremely difficult the last time. Make a list of your fears and check the boxes as you overcome them.

Explore with a New Language

Personal growth requires active efforts to learn something new. Remember to keep searching for something new to learn. You could try learning a new language. It is both entertaining and educative. Make sure you take every chance as they come. Don’t stop learning. Don’t stop growing.

Get a Workout Plan

Getting in shape boosts your confidence, which has a significant pull on your personal growth. It doesn't have to be a daily routine. A weekly routine will do just fine as long as you get things going. Improving your health removes the mental block that stops you from growing. Give it a try! 

Self-growth is a decision you have to make at some point in life. It has never been an easy task for anyone. Yet, it is a task that is worth taking on. You should consider these tips as you set out on your journey toward self-growth. You will be happy you did.

Molly Eovino

Except for a short time, I was a permanent resident in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The heart of the Midwest!  I visited Naples for 30 years, as my parents lived here, watching the community grow from a fishing village to a destination in SW Florida. When my last college bound child hit the University of Iowa in 2001, I hit the road!

I brought with me over a decade of experience in Real Estate, excellent education, and a broad range of interests to jump into the Naples scene with gusto! I "speak" golf and tennis, theater and location/mapping!

In Naples, you will find that nearly everyone is from somewhere else! As a result, your friendships will span the nation and globe, with immediate contacts in England, Germany, France, the East Coast, and the Midwest! Once visitors have experienced Naples, they want to call it home, and then "visit" where they originate from! I am no different, and have tried to learn as much about the town and all it´s history and activities to feel like a native!

I promise you a city tour to help you fall in love with the flavor of Southwest Florida, from the lure of the beaches, morning and sunset, to the different types of golf (equity or bundled). May I interest you in the gourmet flavors that abound, from food to entertainment?

As an active community volunteer in Iowa, I worked on Junior League fundraising events, the Cancer Crusade, March of Dimes, and Kidney foundation drives, and was extremely active in the school committees involving sports (football,basketball, track); cheerleading; and 4 years of show choir productions, Concert Choir, and Madrigal Singers!

Naples has already found a nitch for me in the Naples Players Theater, where I volunteer as a backstage dresser to advance their enthusiastic cause!  I just haven´t gotten on stage...  Growing up in a musical environment,Broadway shows in Naples keep me humming.

The Naples Children & Education Foundation draws my heartfelt attention& volunteer hours  from summer months to the annual Naples Winter Wine Festival in late January.  Their mission statement "supports effective, disciplined charitable programs that significantly improve the physical, emotional and educational lives of underprivileged and at-riskchildren in Collier County, Florida".  As a non-profit organization,the wine festival raised nearly $12 million during the 2019 event! From helping with mailings, to what I call the "quilting table of many hands" for events, I've met many like-minded friends, who believe it's all about the kids!

My educational background spans a multitude of areas, but now they all concentrate on improving my real estate performance. It includes:
BA degrees in Psychology & Vocational Rehabilitation from the University of Northern Colorado.
Mediation Seminars for the Iowa Farmer-Creditor Mediation Services.
Real Estate License in Iowa, REALTOR® 1988
Graduate of the Realtor´s Institute (GRI) 1992
Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) 1994
Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR) 1999-2018
Licensed Broker-Associate, Florida, 2001
Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) 2009
Certified Investor Agent Specialist (CIAS) 2012
Resort & Second Home Property Specialist (RSPS) 2016

As you can tell by my "personal resume", we will become friends as well as business associates. I enjoy teaching my customers Real Estate-ese so that you can make an educated decision regarding your first or second home, or your new rental property. The market in Naples is excellent, and truly is a beautiful Paradise! With year-round tropical temperatures and deep blue skies, I hope that you will agree that I provide

"Midwest warmth in the Naples sunshine"!
