September is Self-Improvement Month. This is one of the best times of year for this. Many people wait to make a New Year’s Resolution & consequently feel overwhelmed in the New Year. It’s better to do this now so that you are ready at the start of 2017. There are 2 things to consider:
-GET TO KNOW YOURSELF BETTER
-REALIZE THAT SELF-BETTERMENT REQUIRES CONTINUAL IMPROVEMENT
To get to know yourself better, re-evaluate yourself. As you experience more of life, you’ll find that these core things about yourself may change:
-Your short-term & long-term goals
-Who/What matters most to you
-New things that you are willing to try
-What you like to do for fun
-What you are passionate about
Next, realize that self-betterment needs to be ongoing for you to have the greatest Happiness & Success so:
-Work towards your goals every day-Continue to set new goals as you achieve them
-Be open to change because it moves you forward
-Ask others to share their own success stories with you for inspiration
Remember, BETTER IS BETTER WHEN IT'S ONGOING SO KEEP BETTER GOING.
Also, realize that self-betterment is in your hands:
-You can read books. It’s even easier now thanks to eBooks.-You can listen to audiobooks if you prefer to listen rather than to read
-You can listen to and watch Ted talks or podcasts. Education is fun when you can listen AND watch.
-You can attend a live course or seminar in your area of interest. See & meet the expert in person.
-You can find self-help information online. You already spend time on the internet so this is a modern day way for you to enhance your education.
-You can use your technology to get better at technology. Expand your tech savvy knowledge & learn every function on your device or how to use each function more efficiently. Upgrade to a new device if needed.
Bottom line, IMPROVE USING THE METHOD THAT WORKS BEST FOR YOU.
Finally, just realize that the ultimate goal is to become the best version of yourself. That’s what makes doing all of this worthwhile.
