“Self-knowledge and self-improvement are very difficult for most people.
It usually needs great courage and long struggle.”
There are many avenues to help you achieve self-improvement and they are as individual as people in a real life are. Not one ”glove” ever fits all, so I’ll strive to bring you various resources worth while to look into and eventually “dive” into, to reach your own unique goals. Here I present some of the keys for you.
But before you delve into many options suitable for your own specific interest of improvement, please read and think some of the wisdom I have chosen for you:
“Every moment of our lives we are either growing or dying—and it’s largely a choice, not fate. Throughout its life cycle, every one of the body’s trillions of cells is driven to grow and improve its ability to use more of its innate yet untapped capacity. Research biologist Albert Szent-Gyoergyi, who was twice awarded the Nobel Prize, called this syntropy, which he defined as the “innate drive in living matter to perfect itself.” It turns conventional thinking upside down…As living cells—or as people—there is no staying the same. If we aim for some middle ground or status quo, it’s an illusion—beneath the surface what’s actually happening is we’re dying, not growing. And the goal of a lifetime is continued growth, not adulthood. As Rene Dubos put it,
“Genius is childhood recaptured.”
For this to happen, studies show that we must recapture—or prevent the loss of—such child-like traits as the ability to learn, to love, to laugh about small things, to leap, to wonder, and to explore. It’s time to rescue ourselves from our grown-up ways before it’s too late.”
“I have come to believe that there are only two kinds of experiences in life: those that stem from our Higher Self and those that have something to teach us. We recognize the first as pure joy and the latter as struggle. But they are both perfect. Each time we confront some intense difficulty, we know there is something we haven’t learned yet, and the universe is now giving us the opportunity to learn.”
“Celebrate any progress. Don’t wait to get perfect.”
Ann McGee Cooper
“Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
With that said, please realize again that you are looking for self-improvement, not for total perfection. Nobody is perfect and never will be. After all it is also not important to become such.
But as a humans you should strive for certain level of admirable personality, because that helps you not just to better life, but also self-assurance, self-confidence and at the same time possibly uncovers in you your very own uniqueness, perhaps talent for something you never knew you had.
In every step developing “better you” you will be coming closer to changes in you that you will love, that will make you happier, more balanced, it will help you to clearer thinking, you’ll start drawing more reasonable and sensible conclusions about some matters that might have been somewhat “foggy” for you previously, you’ll learn to learn, actually you’ll learn love to learn. It shall enrich your life immensely.
Because without self-confidence it is impossible to achieve great results. High self-esteem is very powerful matter. Confident people have charisma, a personal magnetism and charm. You can have it too… Just watch yourself!
“As you start to see the possibilities in the impossible, you will begin to see that the world works “perfectly.” You can find reason and purpose in everything—if you open your mind to it.”
“If we agree that the bottom line of life is happiness, not success, then it makes perfect sense to say that it is the journey that counts, not reaching the destination.”
All learning is really state of mind, so tune to it, want it, Do it!
