S is for Self-discovery
All personal development is an exercise in self-discovery. In order to grow, and in order to really contribute anything meaningful to the world you first have to know yourself and what your unique gifts and motivators are.
This is also true of writing and other creative endeavors. You only create things that are real, things that are True, when you know yourself and work from a deep place of pupose and knowing.
