One of the most amazing things about humanity is our ability to adapt, change and improve! No matter how hard life seems at any given time, we can always make choices that help us deal better with the situation while it lasts, and we can also make choices that improve our situation as well. Even when life is good for us, we can still make choices to further improve things. We are the only beings on Earth that have this much capacity for self-improvement and, what’s more, we automatically yearn for more and better – it’s built into our brains! That makes us extraordinary!
For personal self-improvement, a person might choose to stay in better health by going to the gym, eating better, and drinking more water. Someone with a bad temper might decide to take yoga or learn to meditate or take an anger-management class to become a better person. A new wife and mother might decide she has to learn to shop economically so her family has a looser budget and, she might learn to cook better too so that her new and improved food budget goes further. Someone who suddenly has too much time on their hands because of injury or retirement might learn a new hobby like fly fishing or woodworking. The list is endless of the ways human beings can strive toward self-improvement within their personal lives!
For career-related self-improvement, the list of choices is just as endless! If you have a tendency to run late for work, you can employ any number of tricks that help you get to work on time – you can set your watch ahead by 5 or 10 minutes or you can set an alarm that goes off a few minutes before you need to be ready to leave. If you tend to be very disorganized at work, you can choose from a huge variety of tools -calendar apps, to-do lists, sorting tools – that will help you get more organized and, thereby, become a more efficient worker. If your work is with an international company, you can improve yourself as an employee by improving your language skills so that you can handle more clients on the job and handle them well – Skype English classes are a great way to improve English quickly!
No matter what situation we find ourselves in, we always have the power to make a better choice that will improve ourselves, our homes, and our careers! That is really amazing when you think about it! So what self-improvement are you going to commit to today? Improving your English skills by Skype? Taking better care of yourself? Reading more? Maybe you want to give back to your community so you want to start volunteering somewhere. There any number of choices you can make towards self-improvement and there’s no time like the present to get going – there is ALWAYS room for improvement!
