Four TIPS FOR SELF IMPROVEMENTfrom: Christine P Gray
If we want to succeed in life, we have to engage in any kind of self improvement effort. The world’s population is growing by the second and the skills that are available via the standard academic channels are replicating at the same rate. If we simply absorb everything that is handed to us and not take the initiative to further our personality and skills, chances are, we won’t amount to anything, at all.
Here are some suggestions that might be of interest to you.
Self improvement tip 1: Enrol yourself in interesting development classes.
As said at the start of this article, if you truly want to stand out, you must have something extra to offer, whether to your corporate or personal life. A lot of classes on various topics and activities are available nowadays. Choose those that interest you most, or those that are closest to your chosen career.
Self improvement tip 2: Maximize your senses
Learn to listen more carefully, see more clearly and feel more deeply. You might initially be surprised at this tip, because, well, you do use your five senses everyday. However, you will be surprised, upon closer scrutiny, how little you use them. If you learn to be more sensitive to your surroundings and the people around you, the better you will be able to respond to life’s challenges, whether big or small.
Self improvement tip 3: Relish your alone time.
Since most people nowadays focus most of their time and energies on working and earning money, alone time is probably one of the most precious rewards to be had. Use your alone time wisely. Reflect on the rest of your day and savor the moment. Try not to waste it on mundane things and use it to study your life path and see if you’re still on the right track. Your alone time is a great time to steer yourself back on course.
Self improvement tip 4: Cherish relationships.
Man is a social animal, as Aristotle said. It is inevitable that we socialize. Thus, we must know how to take care of the relationships we have. Working hard is good, but, remember, money can never buy the kind of happiness that is obtained from healthy human relationships.
The world today is moving fast and we have only to find ways to cope with the speed of changes in order not to get left behind. Many of us are now enrolling in various self improvement classes, not just for skills development, like business writing and computer programming, physical growth, like Tae Bo and Capoeira, but also for personality building, like meditation and public speaking. Some people even choose to join groups of people with like interests, like cross-stitching or candle making, to further theirs while trying to pass the time.
All in all, people are seeking ways to improve themselves, not just to be able to adapt to the changing times, but also to get ahead. Presently, simply having a college degree won’t suffice anymore. You have to have something extra to offer in order for you to stand out.
There are many ways you can improve yourself. In fact, there is no single and uniform method for everyone because we all have unique personalities, lives and aspirations. Determine what will work best for you and wait for the rewards to come in. We live in a highly competitive world. We owe it to ourselves to enjoy what personal and career development can bring.
