What Can Self-Improvement Do For You?


What can self-improvement do for you? In a word, everything. It can make you more positive, less fearful, and more knowledgeable. All of which will not only make you more interesting, but also more enjoyable to be around. Because you will begin utilizing more of your potential, you will feel more alive and happier with who you are. 
The fact that you’re reading this leads me to believe that you’re already someone who knows why self-improvement is important or you’ve at least given it some thought. 

What do people mean when they talk about self-improvement? To me, it’s anything you do that improves your mind, your body, and your spirit with the greatest emphasis being on the mind. If you begin by filling your mind with only the best thoughts and the best information, then it will be a natural progression to want to improve the body and spirit as well. 

There are so many reasons to want to improve one’s self. Improving your mind can assist you in: 

• Developing better relationships 

• Being happier with yourself 

• Becoming a better communicator 

Developing better career skills Improving your body can assist you in: 

• Looking more attractive 

• Feeling more youthful and vibrant 

• Having more energy 

Living a longer and having a better quality of life Improving your spirit can assist you in: 

• Being more connected with the world 

• Living without fear 

• Experiencing life more “in the moment” 

When you are operating at a place where you are living without fear, then you are better able to accomplish anything you want. You will experience more abundance and more joy. You become more generous and more concerned with helping others. This creates a chain reaction. As you become a role model, you inspire others to grow. Soon, they will follow your example and they too will become role models. 

In the movie Pay it Forward, Trevor, played by Haley Joel Osment, comes up with a profound idea as part of a class project. He proposes that you perform an act of kindness for another person without expecting any pay. Instead, you ask them to pay it forward by doing a favor for at least 3 other people. They, in turn, pay it forward to 3 more, creating a global chain reaction of kindness.

When we improve ourselves, we learn to be more positive and as such, we make better decisions for ourselves and for others. We embrace life without fear and we accept challenges rather than run from them. We become more confident and we become better communicators. 

Self-improvement isn’t about trying to be perfect, as that is an impossible task. It’s definitely not about comparing yourself to others either. We all have different gifts and aptitudes. Therefore, comparing yourself to someone else is pointless. There is one thing that you can do better than anybody else in the world; be yourself. Self-improvement is about being the best version of yourself and being the best that you can be. 

People who engage in self-improvement have made many great contributions to society. By creating the best version of ourselves, we create a better life. We inspire others to do the same and this in turn has a positive cumulative effect on the entire world.
