The experiences and connections you make in both business and in life are very fascinating to me.
The ability to share ideas and thoughts have always been something I’ve admired.
Recently I had the privilege to connect with Farouk at 2KnowMyself and he offered to guest post some tips on self-improvement.
So, without further ado..
Sometimes things go wrong and we find ourselves feeling really down.
During these moments many of us start wishing that someone comes and saves us or helps us with our problems. How many times you felt like you wanted to be saved?
And how many times no one show up?
Do you want to know who is your savior? Just take a look at the mirror!
During these tough moments your thoughts might be clouded by the emotional pain you are experiencing and as a result you might not notice an extremely important fact which is that you are the only one who can save yourself!
The Law Of Cause And Effect
The law of cause and effect states that: if you kept doing the same things you do everyday you will keep getting the same results you always get.
Albert Einstein, the famous physicist, said that insanity is doing the same thing everyday then expecting a different result.
If you feel like your life is falling apart or if you are not satisfied with your life then you must get up and change something!
I know it might be hard to pull yourself up while you are down but just think about it, you are the only one who can make these changes and you are the only one who can change your life to the better.
Sadly movies have taught us many incorrect things about life. Usually in the movie you see the hero stuck with a big problem then suddenly the Wise-man appears and guides him to the correct thing. In real life this wise man usually never appears!
Because just as you are the hero of your life you are that wise man as well! You are that white knight you are waiting for!!
How To Save Yourself And Improve Your Life Right Now
Here is how to get out of your bad mood and start improving your life:
1) Go to the nearest mirror and take a look: Go to the nearest mirror , take a look and say out loud “This person in the mirror is the only one who can save me.”
2) Find out what you dislike about your life: Certainly you are feeling down for a reason whether it’s a conscious or unconscious one. Take your time to find out why exactly you are not feeling OK and once you manage to find the things that are bothering you write them down.
3) Make a plan: Start writing a plan that has the goals of changing those things you dislike about your life. Some things will be in your hand while others might be out of your hands. Start with the ones you can change and don’t be afraid to ask for help you with the ones that you can’t.
4) Commit to the plan or else…. If you don’t commit to the plan nothing will change and your bad mood will remain the same. This is how to change your life for the better.
Farouk is absolutely right. Without a plan of action, as well as the belief and drive to back it, nothing will differ. Want to change your life? Change yourself. It’s an extremely simple philosophy, but one that is often overlooked by many. I’d like to hear what you think… When was your “aha!” moment that changed it all for you? Leave your comment below.
