Self Improvement




‘There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.”
Ernest Hemingway

Are you someone who likes to grow? Do you constantly seek to improve yourself and become better? As a passionate advocate of growth, I am continuously looking for ways to self improve. My suggestions for personal improvement include;

Start a 30-day challenge. Set a goal and give yourself 30 days to achieve this. Your goal can be to stick with a new habit or something you have always wanted to do but have not. 30 days is just enough time to strategise, plan, get into action, review and progress your goal.

Practice gratitude. Reminding yourself of the positive things in your life has power. Many studies show not only to sustained feelings of happiness but also a decreased number of physical ailments. Write down three positive things every single day and take note of your improved mood.

Listen to what you want. Sometimes we are so distracted by stresses that we never take time to settle down and listen to what our bodies and minds are telling us. Try this: Sit in a comfortable position, slow your breathing, close your eyes, and as you breathe, mentally repeat the words I am for five minutes. Next, four times in a row, ask yourself What do I want? Do not force yourself to answer it; let you mind settle down and see what bubbles up.

Commit to your personal growth. You can read about many different ways to improve yourself, but if you have no intention to commit to your personal growth, it does not matter what you read. Nothing is going to get through. We are responsible for our own personal growth – no one else.

Begin by selecting one or two of the above steps and working on them. The results may not be immediate, but I promise you that as long as you keep to it, you will start seeing positive changes in yourself and your life.


Make the decision to commit to your personal growth and embrace yourself on a life-long journey of growth and change. Starting today.


“Life improvement begins with self-improvement.”
