At some point in your life you will need to realize that the only battle you need to win in your life is the battle of constant improvement of your life.
Everyone seem to agree that the only competition worth engaging in is self competition. Daily improvement to be better than you were yesterday is one of the most outstanding decisions you can make. It requires not just committment but also sacrifice on your part to give up some aspects of your life that you may be enjoying but not really shaping you to the person you dream of becoming.
Daily review of your life and the path you are on is key to constant improvement. The older and wiser you grow, you may just notice that your circle sometimes grows thinner. The older you get, the more you realize that you have no need for drama, stress and conflict. You will realize the need to be more positive, happy and around people who constantly help you improve your personality and move towards your goals. This is a responsibility you may not need to outsource to anyone else. You may require an accountability partner but it is your responsibility to initiate and take care of it.
Someone said “it is silly to try to escape other people’s fault, they are inescapable. Just try to escape your own”. The hardest and most important work you need to do is on yourself. It is easy to see how everyone else is getting it wrong but yourself.
However, the change that guarantees the most improvements is self change. Daily altering of negative routine, bad behaviours will surely lead you on that right paths of happy ending.
One of the most important attributes of mankind is the power of choice. Everyone has an inallienable right and power to make choices. You may say in certain circumstances this power may be onstrained, but maybe someone else had exercised that on your behalf. It is the accumulation of these choices that result in the person you become.
Man is in the constant work of becoming, self discovery. The best way to achieve that is self improvement, daily and gradual. A strong person is one who has the capacity of not just seeing his own errors but also the power to admit and change them to improve. That may be the hardest yet most important work you may do. The gap between you and your dreams may just be to positively alter your attitudes. You can do it gradually. Begin changing the world from yourself it will be easier that way.
Many people seek solutions mostly outside of themselves, many people think that all their challenges are external and requires external solutions. You may be the one holding yourself from reaching your goals, when all you need is to alter some attitudes and behaviours holding you back. Make daily improvement a pattern of your life and see how happy you will be.
