Are you someone who likes to grow? Do you constantly seek to improve yourself and become better?
If you do, then we have something in common.
I’m very passionate about personal growth. It was just 4 years ago when I discovered my passion for growing and helping others grow. At that time, I was 22 and in my final year of university. As I thought about the meaning of life, I realized there was nothing more meaningful than to pursue a life of development and betterment. It is through improving ourselves that we get the most out of life.
1. Take Up a New Course
Is there any new course you can join? Courses are a great way to gain new knowledge and skills.
It doesn’t have to be a long-term course – seminars or workshops serve their purpose too.
I’ve been to a few workshops and they have helped me gain new insights which I had not considered before.
2. Get into Action
The best way to learn and improve is to take action.
What is something you have been meaning to do? How can you take action on it immediately?
Waiting doesn’t get anything done. Taking action gives you immediate results to learn from.
3. Wake up Early
Waking up early (say, 5-6am) has been acknowledged by many (Anthony Robbins, Robin Sharma, among other self-help gurus) to improve your productivity and your quality of life.
I feel it’s because when you wake up early, your mindset is already set to continue the momentum and proactively live out the day.
4. Get Out of Your Comfort Zone
Real growth comes with hard work and sweat. Being too comfortable doesn’t help us grow, it makes us stagnate.
What is your comfort zone? Do you stay in most of the time? Do you keep to your own space when out with other people?
Shake your routine up. Do something different.
By exposing yourself to a new context, you’re literally growing as you learn to act in new circumstances.
5. Take a Break
Have you been working too hard? Self-improvement is also about recognizing our need to take a break to walk the longer mile ahead. You can’t be driving a car if it has no petrol.
Scheduling down time for yourself is important. Take some time off for yourself every week. Relax, rejuvenate and charge yourself up for what’s up ahead.
