Here is the list of some of ayats of Holy Quran that can serve as an example of “personal development list”.  Any of these suggestions hold a valuable insight to modern day human’s psyche on “well-balanced behavior and psychological well-being” as well as inspirational brainstorming on ethical manners and attitudes.

Al-Isra 17/37: Be modest and stay away from all forms of arrogance.

Nor walk on the earth with insolence: for thou canst not rend the earth asunder, nor reach the mountains in height.

Al-Baqara 2/156: Never fall into the trap of despair, keep in mind that there is always room for light of hope.

Who say, when afflicted with calamity: “To Allah We belong, and to Him is our return”:-

Al-Balad 90/6-7: Don’t fool yourself that your material possessions will suffice to solve every kind of problems you might encounter in the course of your life.

He may say (boastfully); Wealth have I squandered in abundance!

Al-Hujurat 49/11: Stay away from every form of social-bullying since it might offend your friends and keep them away from you.

O ye who believe! Let not some men among you laugh at others: It may be that the (latter) are better than the (former): Nor let some women laugh at others: It may be that the (latter are better than the (former): Nor defame nor be sarcastic to each other, nor call each other by (offensive) nicknames: Ill-seeming is a name connoting wickedness, (to be used of one) after he has believed: And those who do not desist are (indeed) doing wrong.

Kind words and the covering of faults are better than charity followed by injury. Allah is free of all wants, and He is Most-Forbearing.

Al-Furqan 25/63: When you meet foolishness or blatant criticism in life, or even injustice, try to be on the forgiving side, control your anger and keep on your modest attitude.
