“I want to grow. I want to be better. You Grow. We all grow. We’re made to grow.You either evolve or you disappear.”
Tupac Shakur

.
In our journey of self improvement, I know we all want to be even happier or more content or feel more alive and engaged in our lives. I know that yearning. To wake up every morning excited to begin the day, to lie in bed and feel filled with gratitude to be living a life we love.

.
Over the years I have found that one of the best pieces of advice I can give is:

.
Take the time to become clear about what the problem is that you really want to change and what it is you really want. Do this before you begin to make big changes. We are often so eager to make things happen that we move into action purely based on things that are at the surface level.

.

Getting clear about what the problem really is like ensuring the ladder is up against the right wall before you start climbing it, or doing enough investigation to make sure there is water below you before you start digging a large well.

.
You can begin by simply asking yourself, repeatedly:

.
Is this really the problem?.

.

‘Is this really what I want?

.
The most important journey you can take is one of self-discovery. Knowing yourself is the beginning of self growth.

.

Take time to come up with your answers. The first step to living a more fulfilling life is to think about the things you enjoy doing. What do you love? What fulfills you? What “work” do you do that doesn’t feel like work? Maybe you enjoy writing, maybe you love working with animals or maybe you have a knack for photography.

.

Take the first step towards improving your life. You will look back in a year from now and be glad you did..
