For things to change for you , you’ve got to change!
Even if you run your own business or work for someone, you never go wrong by working on yourself.
Simple things like changing your attitude, the way your present yourself to others, your smile and even the way you give a handshake… work on that.
The only way it gets better for you is when you get better!
The reason I write about personal development is not because I’m already there, I’m a work in progress. I guess it is like that for everyone, there is no destination when it comes to personal development because there is alwasy room for improvement, bettering yourself is a manner of travelling.
Wanting to be better or achieving certain things in life both start with a thought. Our minds are very powerful tools, feeding them positively is the first thing we need to do, the next step is to start working gradually towards what we want to achieve…the action.
Your list could be long or simple but taking necessary steps to achieve these goals is very important. Don’t we all write down New Year’s resolutions or a simple to-do list for the day and only do some of the tasks or none at all because we failed to execute the action part of the process?
I am learning that it’s better to be slow, effective, and consistent, taking small actions every single day than to bite off more than you can chew. Biting of more than you can chew results in failure and loss of motivation. A famous quote by Robert Louis says,
“Don’t judge each day by the harvest your reap, but by the seeds that you plant.”
You know your goals, you know what you want to achieve , you know the areas you need to work on and change. Whatever you put your mind to – you can achieve, just take those baby steps and before you know it we’re ticking off our lists of achievements. Now doesn’t that sound exciting?
We can’t change the seasons but we learn how to adapt to them but we can surely change ourselves!
