First, you should ask yourself in preparation for the self Improvement motivation from the inside out “looking in the mirror” session.
Be all you can be; it is a slogan used for the Army and everyday life.
I often see myself as somewhat contented with my life the way things are, but of course, it’s hard to think of anything else when real issues are to be discussed.
Still, I aspire for something deeper and more meaningful way to achieve now a better life.
So we’re all full of problems. Honestly, it shouldn’t even bother or even hinder us from becoming all we ought to be. Aspirations as kids should continue to live within us as adults, even though it would be short-lived or as long as we could hold on to the dream.
They say you can’t teach an old dog a new trick, or can they?
So, here are some key questions you should be asking yourself daily or weekly to improve and keep the motivation alive.
1. What do I want?
This question of the ages is asked time after time from generation to generation. You want to do many things with your life and so little time to even go about during the day.
The first step on your growth path must be to recognize that your life as it stands right now isn’t how you want it to be, so it is time for a change.
Never close your eyes to the truth. If you want to grow beyond your current limitations, you must first learn to stop resisting where you are.
Find something that you are good at can help to realize that small step towards improvement. Diligence is the key to knowing that it is worth it and adds some commitment and discipline to the mix.
2. Should I change?
The answer is simple, yes. As you grow, you change even when you do not want change; life will force you to redefine yourself.
When you fail to release incompatibilities from your life, you settle for mere tolerance and prevent compatible new connections from forming.
3. Am I comfortable with what I’m doing?
There’s always the easy way and the right way when it comes to deciding what goes with which shoes, or purse, shirt, and anything else.
It doesn’t take a genius to see you as someone unique, or else we’ll all be equally the same in everything we do. Variety brings in fascinating and exciting questions to experiment with.
4. Have I done enough for myself?
Have you, or is there something more you want to do? Discontentment in every aspect can be dangerous in large doses, but in small amounts, you’ll be able to see and do stuff you could never imagine doing.
There is no power in the past or the future, only in the present moment. We should set goals not to control the future but to empower ourselves and improve our current reality.
5. Am I happy at where I am today?
It’s an unfair question so let it be an answer! You love being a right and loving person to your spouse, and then take it up a notch! Your spouse will love you forever. The same goes with everyday life!
The purpose of every relationship is to teach you how to love yourself from the inside out.
6. What’s the bright side of all of this?
There seems to be no room for even considering that light at the end of the tunnel with so much is happening around us. We can still see it as something positive without undergoing so much scrutiny, and if it’s a train at the end of the tunnel, take it for a ride and see what makes the world go round!
7. How much could I have?
I suppose, in this case, there are no such things as having things too much or too little, but it’s more on how badly you need it. I would like to have more money, no denying that, but the question is that how much are you willing to work for it?
8. What motivates me?
It’s an answer you have to find out for yourself. There are so many things that can make everyone happy but choosing one may be the hardest part. It’s not like you can’t have one serving of your favorite food in a buffet, and that’s it. Just try it piece by piece.
Being authentic doesn’t mean being perfect.
You can be just about anything you always wanted to be, but to realize that attaining something that may seem very difficult is already giving up before you even start that journey. Remember that self-improvement is not just about the physical or philosophical change you have to undergo, but it’s something you want.
A great quote from Napoleon Hill put this in perspective…” The starting point of all achievement is desire. Keep this always in mind. Weak desire brings weak results, Just as a small amount of fire makes a small amount of heat”.
Remember, another key for achievement is well expressed by Jim Rohn in his quote, “Discipline is the foundation upon which all success is built. Lack of discipline inevitably leads to failure”.
I wish you all the success in your daily self Improvement journey.
