There are many paths to take to achieve the goals you want, Zen being only one (if that is right for your).
For each person they need to discover it for themselves, but first of all you must start down the path. From there you will work out the rest. Find out where you want to be, want you want to be doing in the future... then ask yourself how are your going to get there. Work on improving the skills you need to achieve these goals.
Meditation can help get you in the right frame of mind among other things.
Set your goals, and even set 'mini-goals' which make up the process of achieving the main goal.
Some people like to mental visualise, others often make 'dream wall' (a collect of photos and images of the things you want in life). Goals don't always have to be material things, again, you have to work that out for yourself.
Anyways, good luck and best wishes on your journey.

Have since been reading books about self assertiveness and joined a group
Personal development varies on the ability of the person. If that person does nothing on his life, nothing will happen and no development will be involved.
To be able to overcome circumstances that are unavoidable, we must learn to accept failure. From this, we can much develop our senses and learn from our mistakes. In short, experiences will carry on to better personal development.
