To begin with self-development, you should determine the concepts of self-development and self-improvement: what are the differences, and what methods are used. Self-development is an independently organized work of a person on himself, the result of which is intellectual, personal, and spiritual growth, the emergence of new knowledge and skills.
The next stage is self-improvement, i.e., bringing a person’s moral, moral, intellectual abilities, skills to a higher level. In the process of self-development or self-improvement, a person understands that he is doing the right thing, his intellect grows and social behavior changes. Following this, it rises.
