A Better You





Make the most of yourself….for that is all there is of you.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

How does one become a better person?

Be a better friend to your friends. I used to be disappointed at how some of my friends were not always there for me when I need them, then I realised that I should think about how I can be a better friend to my friends first before making such expectations of others.

Be accepting of differences – be it of people, mindsets, lifestyles, or cultures. For they add variety and colour into our lives. If everyone is the same, life will be dull – monotonous, even.

Be adaptable. Have your goals and plans, but be able to change them accordingly when the situation calls for it. Rigidity is a sign of weakness, while adaptability makes you so much more powerful.

Step out of your comfort zone. Are you continuing in the same routines and hiding behind a safety net? Step out and do something you have never done before. It will broaden your mind and make you a more interesting person.

Be assertive. Stand up for your rights and the things you believe in.

Be bold. Life is an adventure. Do not live it in fear. Bravely pursue your dreams. Boldly act on your instincts. Believe in yourself and  create the life you have always wanted.

Importantly,  be around people that make you want to be a better person, who make you feel good, make you laugh, and remind you what is important in life.

“Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Do not bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself.”
William Faulkner
