Staying on track when it comes to self-improvement journey is not easy; focus, commitment and passion are constantly needed to keep you going and help build on your personal development. How often do you track your progress? How often do you follow up on those ambitious goals and high-minded targets?
Many people have goals they have set but ultimately fail to stay on track. 2021 is already here with us and will end soon. It has been a challenging year for everyone and of course, I know we all had goals we had set at the beginning of the year. How are they progressing?

Remember, while tracking your personal growth, you will have those low points and failures. It is normal. What you need to do is accept your mistakes, it is part of life and part of your personal growth too as long as you can move past them and keep growing stronger and wiser regardless.
I feel like personal growth is an essential aspect of our lives that need no ignorance. Is it possible to complete a monthly personal review of your goals? Very possible. They will eventually evolve into something you find beneficial for helping you track your progress.
