So you’ve decided the time has come to work on yourself. Good for you. We can all use a little self improvement. Here are 6 things you should do to improve yourself.
#1 Fall in Love With Your Passion
If you want to be happy, fall in love with what you are passionate about. Give yourself permission to love, whether that’s something you are doing, such as working with at risk children, or it’s falling in love with your soul mate. We have only so many years in this life and what could be better than spending some of that time doing something you are passionate about or with someone you love. Do what you love, be with who or what you love, live for your passion. You will grow immensely and you will be happy.
#2 Make Someone Else Happy
Why not make it your goal to make someone happy every day. It can be something as little as a smile and asking someone how their day is going or complimenting them. You might do someone a favor or you might help someone with a project. What you will discover is when you make someone else happy, you also become happier.
#3 Step Up and Do Your Part
Every day tragedy happens and our first responders are there to handle them. But you can also do your part. What about the dog that’s running down the road in harm’s way or the child that’s wiped out on their bike and is on the sidewalk crying. What about the elderly person that’s fallen or the friend that’s had too much to drink. Step up and do your part to help someone else, whether you know them or not.
We can easily forget what we have to be grateful for in our day to day lives. Every morning and at the end of every day give at least two things that you are grateful for that day. You can express your gratitude verbally or you can create a gratitude book where you write it down. End every day on a positive, life-affirming note.
#5 Keep it Neat
Did you know that a tidy environment will also keep your mind clear. As a result, you will be more productive and you will also have more control over your life. Interestingly, this self improvement tip is often overlooked and yet it can have such a profound effect on you.
#6 Surround Yourself With Good People
Find people to hang out with that have a positive attitude and a love for life. Find those who express gratitude for what they have. Associating with these kinds of people will have a positive effect on how you act and think. Having friends that make love and respect you is powerful.
