Let’s start with the Stone Age. What if the people of the Stone Age had not worked upon their skills? What if they had not invented the wheel and worked upon that idea? What if no one ever did anything to improve themselves and just remained the way they were? Being the smartest species, we learned, we improved and we improvised.
That’s the gift that we humans have. We can learn from our mistakes. We can work upon ourselves, our shortcomings and upon knowing our shortcomings we can take action, improvise in order to overcome them. These are the perks of being a human and our evolution from the Stone Age to the modern age proves this.
Today, people look for improvement in their lifestyles, in their jobs, in their relationships, the status they have in the society. Let me remind you, you are the one in control. You are in the center of everything that effects your life or is affected by your actions. It is all up to you how you control things and improve yourself for good. Believe in yourself and your dream and you are already halfway there. Your actions and efforts will help you go the other half.
Here is how you can work upon yourselves:
1. Get out of your comfort zone.
You should never hesitate in getting out of your comfort zone and trying new things. You would never know if you’d succeed in a thing if you don’t do it. Even if you fail multiple times, you just need one win. Failure is never the end. You should learn and improvise from your failures.
2. Be Disciplined and Consistent.
Hard work, discipline, consistency are the keys to success. Having discipline in one's life keeps away chaos in their lives. It makes you an organized person. Discipline is what makes an army. Never give up on things that matter rather is consistent with achieving them..
3. Keep yourself busy.
Spend your free time doing something productive. Develop a habit of reading, be it a small article daily. Write something every day, be it a small thought in the back of your head. Play Sudoku, solve a puzzle to keep your brain sharp.
4. Keep good company.
The people you hang out with play a major role in shaping the kind of person you are. Keeping cheerful and motivated people around will give you positive vibes about everything and will keep you motivated.
Go to the gym, play some sport, run. Do whatever it takes to keep your health in good shape. Just one hour of your day would play a major role in shaping your life. You can’t feel well and do well if you don’t have good health. You can’t perform. This is the only vehicle to carry you through this experience called “life”.
6. Never be satisfied
Never be satisfied with yourself, always know that as you invest the effort and time on you, it will be another step towards your goal. See, a dog can only be a dog and a tree will only be a tree but you humans, you have got unlimited potential.
7. Be Motivated
Whatever you hear in the first twenty minutes when you wake up, that will affect the spirit of your day. Listen or read something motivating with relaxed believe, believing that this could happen to you.
8. Don’t settle for less
Never settle for less than what you actually deserve. We never feel good about it, but we make it work in our minds. We come up with some kind of excuse to make it all right.
9. Ask yourself what is it that you want.
What do you want out of life? What do you want out of a job? What do you want out of a career? What do you want out of a relationship? How would you know if you got it? Ask yourself. Don’t be fake-“oh I just want to be happy”.
