Self improvement for a Purpose Driven Life

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 0 4


Self improvement or personal development is the key to living life to the fullest

 Self - improvement or personal development is the only means of making this life of ours count. Our life is one of infinite possibilities and potential. How much of it do we put to use in this life is what we need to ask of ourselves. 

Self improvement to purpose driven life
 Are we too busy to take care of ourselves and optimize our potential ? Do we care enough?  We take our cars to the garage to get them checked routinely. We go to the doctor for our regular check ups. But we hardly ever give any thought to the health of our mind, our emotions and how we handle them.


 Self improvement is all about tweaking up the potential within us and making us ready for the challenges that we face everyday. If we do not change ourselves, we run the risk of being left behind and outdated. In order to ensure that we are well on track, we need to look into ourselves, to find those things that are bothering us to change those things in us that are annoying to others, and those that will help us improve the quality of our lives. If we want to live life on our terms and live it to the fullest, we need to enjoy as much of it as we possibly can. The moments of dissatisfaction and unhappiness should be understood as time wasted.

 We only need to look at what we have, what we can do and what changes or improvements we need to make to make our lives fuller, better and happier. I believe that no one should live a life that has not reached its fullest potential. Everyone has a right to be happy and satisfied, so why not start with you?

Keys to self improvement or personal development or self help

In order to adopt elements of self-improvement or personal development in your life, you need to first look at what it is that is holding you back form achieving what you want. What is it that is making you feel unhappy and dissatisfied? What could you do to make it better? Remember, you cannot change others, so the best place to start is with you.

 Prioritize. List your answers and see what you need to the most. Start working on it.

Do it for yourself. Whatever may be the change you need to make, you need to understand why you are doing it. You need to be doing it for yourself and not because of others or because you have to, you should do it because you want to.

 Know the purpose for your life. Write down the purpose for which you want to make the change and what you will achieve by making this change. Don’t forget to list down all the areas of your life that will become better because of this one change that you make

 Be your own motivation. Use this list that you have just created to become your motivation. Everyday you need to tell yourself that you are making the change for yourself and the reasons listed. This will bring meaning and give direction and purpose to what you are doing.

 Break the task into smaller and achievable goals. Be realistic and specific about your goals. Have short time goals which will help you progress towards your final goal. This will make your progress measurable, achievable and will keep you motivated until you reach your fullest potential.

 Find fun ways of doing these things or achieving your goals. Self improvement is hard work, so make sure that you have fun along the way. 

Take responsibility for everything that happens in your life. You are in the driver’s seat. You work towards progress despite situations and circumstances.

Take time to give. Self improvement is also about having good relationships. Make sure that you are not the only one who is improving, changing and developing, make sure that you lift up those sround you too. 

Commitment and dedication is what will help you achieve your target of self improvement. Commitment to yourself and your growth should be your highest priority.

Self improvement is what will build your self confidence, self esteem and self belief and make you a person that others look up to. But more than all that it makes your life purpose driven and meaningful.

Great information and advice! It is so true, we cannot change others. People usually learn that lesson with their spouse or when they have teens. Wonderful article!
