Self Improvement Power
How to unlock your self-improvement power
No matter what your age is, there's always room for self-improvement. Not for the
sake of others, or trying to be a better person (although there's nothing wrong with that), but because it will
bring you more inner peace and fulfillment, which self-improvement tends to do. You will have more self
Unlock your self power
When we look at a certain object, a painting for example – we won’t be able
to appreciate what’s in it, what is painted and what else goes with it, if the painting is just an inch away from
our face. But if we try to take it a little further, we’ll have a clearer vision of the whole art work.
Too many self-doubts can lead to lack of self-esteem. Unlock the power of the
self by being a better person for your own
Try placing Frog A in a pot of boiling water. What happens? He twerps! He jumps
off! Why? Because he is not able to tolerate sudden change in his environment – the water’s temperature.
Then try Frog B: place him in a luke warm water, then turn the gas stove on. Wait
til the water reaches a certain boiling point. Frog B then thinks “Ooh… it’s a bit warm in here”.
People are like Frog B in general. Today, Anna thinks Carl hates her. Tomorrow,
Patrick walks up to her and told her he hates her. Anna stays the same and doesn’t mind her what her friends says.
The next day, she learned that Kim and John also abhors her. Anna doesn’t realize at once the importance and the
need for self improvement until the entire community hates her.
Make change happen now
We learn our lessons when we experience pain. We finally see the warning signs and
signals when things get rough and tough. When do we realize that we need to change diets? When none of our jeans
and shirts would fit us. When do we stop eating candies and chocolates? When all of our teeth has fallen off. When
do we realize that we need to stop smoking? When our lungs have gone bad. When do we pray and ask for help? When we
realize that we’re gonna die tomorrow.
|The starting point for making changes is to accept yourself for what you are
and where you are, before you change to where you want to be.
The only time most of us ever learn about unlocking our self improvement power is
when the whole world is crashing and falling apart. We think and feel this way because it is not easy to change.
But change becomes more painful when we ignore it.
Change will happen, like it or hate it. At one point or another, we are all going
to experience different turning points in our life – and we are all going to eventually unlock our self improvement
power not because the world says so, not because our friends are nagging us, but because we realized its for our
Self-improvement is a way of life
Happy people don’t just accept change, they embrace it. Now, you don’t have to
feel a tremendous heat before realizing the need for self improvement. Unlocking your self improvement power means
unlocking yourself up in the cage of thought that “its just the way I am”. It is such a poor excuse for people who
fear and resist change. Most of us program our minds like computers.
Jen repeatedly tells everyone that she doesn’t have the guts to be around groups
of people. She heard her mom, her dad, her sister, her teacher tell the same things about her to other people. Over
the years, that is what Jen believes. She believes its her story. And what happens? Every time a great crowd would
troop over their house, in school, and in the community – she tends to step back, shy away and lock herself up in a
room. Jen didn’t only believed in her story, she lived it.
|Believe in yourself and who you are, to help you rise above your fears
or petty things that might keep your grounded and stop from achieving your goals.
Jen has to realize that she is not what she is in her story. Instead of having her
story post around her face for everyone to remember, she has to have the spirit and show people “I am an important
person and I should be treated accordingly!”
Self improvement may not be everybody’s favorite word, but if we look at things in
a different point of view, we might have greater chances of enjoying the whole process instead of counting the days
until we are fully improved. Three sessions in a week at the gym would result to a healthier life, reading books
instead of looking at porns will shape up a more profound knowledge, going out with friends and peers will help you
take a step back from work and unwind. And just when you are enjoying the whole process of unlocking your self
improvement power, you’ll realize that you’re beginning to take things light and become happy. And all that leads
to more success in your life.
