Why Coaching Pills of Wisdom?
It will be a cliché to say that one picture speaks more than a thousand words. But it is so. Moreover, each of us has our own preferred style of obtaining information and making decisions. And it depends on which of our five senses is the dominant one. This is the so-called modality.
By the way, please consider how you like to make decisions: do you prefer to be alone in silence or do you prefer group discussions? How do you learn best? Is it by reading written documents, or maybe watching presentations or listening to other people? In the answers to these questions, you will find tips on your personal modalities. And if you are not sure about them - Psychometric Tests can help a lot.
It is no coincidence that the world uses more and more icons, pictures, and movies. They make understanding intuitive and make the process of learning new things very quick.
Therefore, on our website, you will also find inspirations that are a combination of strong questions and graphics that appeal to your imagination.
We called them Coaching Wisdom Pills because they very often accurately put the heart of the matter in one sentence.
These are very often famous quotes, inspirations, thoughts of wise people as well as strong coaching questions, which broaden the perspective of looking and are strikingly effective.
One of the many practices of personal development is to choose one of your thoughts each week and contemplate it consciously. And at the end of the week, a summary of the process with one simple but extremely valuable question:
What have I learned this week? About myself, about my relatives, about the world? About man?

Quotes about work, business, money and success - in Polish
In another dedicated post posted on our blog, we have compiled another long list of wise and strong thoughts. This time they concern our work, business, money, and the notion of success, which has been so famous in recent years.
We chose them in a special way. These wise thoughts and quotes from great people of today's business (but not only!) Are meant to make you reflect on what wealth really is? Can we call success achieved at the expense of health or our loved ones a success? Whether money certainly plays such an important role in our lives, or maybe we let ourselves be persuaded to do so?

Inspirations and tips on Personal Development
And as a reward that you have read patiently up to this point, we present a list of inspirations and tips that will lead you to a better, more comfortable life. However, please use them wisely. Each of us is at a different stage in our lives, each has different needs and different lessons to work through. And that's absolutely OK. This is the beauty of the world and its diversity. In fact, we are all on the same developmental journey. We only start from a different place and choose different routes, but there are many indications that sooner or later we will meet in the same place.
To a large extent, these tips, hints, and inspirations are the result of many coaching sessions. Ran with the same people as you and me. And just like you and me, sometimes stumble on "obstacles" that need to be worked on wisely to create a new, better version of yourself.
Perhaps the same fact will be a positive inspiration for you. As the folk saying goes: "someone else's obstacles strengthen us." And seriously speaking: we want to emphasize once again that we are all on the same developmental journey.
So today, choose from this list only those inspirations that most resonate with you. Preferably no more than three. And start doing it. Practice. Practice. Regularly.
One activity for at least 3 weeks (according to research, this is how long an adult needs to develop a new habit).
A list of specific guidelines for Personal Development
Here is our list of concrete and practical tips for Personal Development. To be used immediately, for everyday use. As one of the Wisdom Pills we published says:
"20 minutes of doing something is better for your development than 20 hours of thinking about doing something".
So take the first little step!
Make a conscious effort to live in the moment to appreciate and be thankful for yourself and the others around you.
Several times a day, stop what you are doing to observe what others are doing. Write down people and events that somehow inspire you.
Develop and write down strategies to help you combat doubt, fear, and making excuses.
When interacting with different people, pay attention to strong emotions such as anger, fear, impatience, etc. Consider if and how each interaction and emotion helps you become a better person or achieve your goal.
We all need a little "hard love" and direct honesty at times. Examine your attitudes and actions. Do they foster an atmosphere of honesty and openness?
For each of your important goals, set a few people or role models who have achieved a similar goal.
Every day try to inspire someone who is going through difficult times. In other words, offer someone help or do your best to be polite.
Write down the realistic and unrealistic fears that come to your mind as you try to achieve your goal. For the most frequent ones, counter them with a positive reminder that will strengthen you and inspire you to continue your chosen path or complete a task.
The things you do that are uncomfortable, somewhat painful, or difficult to do help you "exercise" or develop some area of your life. The more you exercise and develop an aspect of yourself, the stronger you will become, until even you are surprised by your strength.
Sometimes it's hard to see yourself objectively or as others see you. This includes both your strengths and underdeveloped areas. Talk to other people for details on the aspects they feel should be looked at and the perspective to be used
Accept your strong feelings, but also agree that they will change over time. Don't let your emotions negatively affect you, keep you from making progress, or force you to quit. Make good choices from a rational position.
When you feel strong and content with yourself, write down and remember the things (or people) that inspired you to go beyond what you feared.
Set a bigger, aspirational goal for yourself. Describe exactly what you want to achieve. And then break it down into smaller SMART goals. They will guide you step by step towards achieving each minor goal and ultimately guide you towards the ultimate greater goal and success.
Your gratitude and appreciation help inspire both yourself and others. Remember times when you inspired or helped someone e
