Besides writing out the problem and possible solutions, talking to other people about it can help. Great sources of solutions are other people who have had a similar issue and have overcome it.
Find someone who has already achieved what you want to achieve. Ask them how they did it. Some people may be close-lipped about their success, but others will gladly share their success story with you.
As people, we naturally want to share good news about things. Some people might “brag” about what they’ve accomplished, but others will share with you in a simple, straightforward manner. There is a wealth of resources all around you. Ask enough people, and eventually you’ll find the material or answers you’re looking for.
Then, work for a few minutes every day on bettering yourself in the areas that need improvement. Don’t try to fix everything overnight. You have to do it in steps to keep from getting overwhelmed and in order to make it last. Lasting change is what you’re after, right? Not a temporary fix that will ultimately leave you more frustrated than you were to begin with.
Success is a process, journey, mindset, and lifestyle. It’s not a destination you go to, nor is it a pill that you toss into your mouth and quickly swallow. It takes time, diligence, and purpose.
If your goal is health oriented, make a list of things you can do to improve your health, foods you can eat, and lifestyle changes that you can make. These will help you reach your goal in a timely manner. Good choices in food, exercise, activities, attitudes, and emotions can save your health.
If your personal improvement goal is money oriented, make a list of legitimate ways you can make money, the time involved, and the potential return on your investment of time, effort, or cash. There are all sorts of opportunities to make honest money in almost every town, city, or community in the world! You just have to see where the gaps are and fill them. People will gladly pay you to make their problems go away. When you offer them a solution to something that frustrates them, they will gladly compensate you for bringing their happiness back.
If your goal is relationship oriented, think of ways you can improve the ones you have by making a list of your friends and jotting down the last time you did something fun with them. You’ll be surprised how quickly time passes between visits or between times you hang out together. With that list of friends and fun times, you’ll be able to see how blessed you already are with people who care about you. If your list is actually completely empty of any names (meaning that you don’t have any friends), then you can start filling it by going somewhere and helping somebody who is in need. Just look around…you’ll find amazing opportunities almost everywhere.
Once you achieve your goal of your personal improvement, please be willing to share your success story with others. Your example will lead the way for more success to come. Likewise, your success will inspire others to achieve great things, too.
Remember: identify your problem; make your plan; and be diligent about seeing it through.
