Improve Your Life with the Levels of Development

If you’re like most people, you probably want to increase life’s satisfaction in some way. Whether it’s improving your decision-making skills, your relationships, or your job situation, the desire for continual improvement is an important human desire. No wonder there are so many books and websites dedicated to personal and professional growth!

In my own experience and in working with countless others, I have found that once you become aware of the Levels of Development, improvement and growth are natural byproducts. That’s because the Levels of Development essentially gives you a rubric for making decisions and living a more satisfactory life. In short, it’s one of the simplest tools to use to improve your emotional and physical life.

How is this possible? It’s because the Levels of Development help clarify the motivation behind all of your decisions. Are you allowing outside forces to dictate your behavior? Or are you aware and in control of your decisions and behavior? Once you are aware why you are doing something, you can better reflect on your choices and actions—and then take the steps that lead to responsibility, empowerment, and growth.

Know Your Motivation and Improve Your Life

Chances are that at some point in life you experienced anger and had little concern for the effect your behavior had on others. This is acting on Level A (Anarchy of the Levels of Development). If you don’t know about these levels, it’s easy to continue acting on negative levels indefinitely and experiencing all the negative outcomes such behavior brings about. However, if you realize you are being influenced by some external motivation (whatever triggered your anger), you can reflect on it and figure out other ways to respond. You can realize that you have a choice in your reaction and that you can choose to operate on a higher level. Once you do, you’ll experience more positive outcomes—all because you became aware of your motivation for acting a certain way.

Tip: Study the Levels of Development. Teach the levels to the youth in your life, too. You’ll quickly realize that doing so is a simple way to reduce your stress, increase positive outcomes, and improve your relationships.
