Everything that happens to us happens in purpose. And sometimes, one thing can lead to another. People often relive their past fears and cry over there past failures, shame and sorrows, over and over again. Instead treat these past fears, failures, etc… for what they are, lessons learned, and they will lead you to self-improvement and success.
One of my favorite movies is Patch Adams – I can remember watching it several times. As a medical student Hunter “patch” Adams failed to make it through the board exams. After months of downheartedness, suicidal attempts and depression – he decided to look for medical attention and willingly admitted himself into a psychiatric ward.
The months he stayed in the hospital guided him to meeting different kinds of people. Sick people in that matter. He met a catatonic, a mentally challenged, a schizophrenic and so on. Patch finally realized he has to get back on track and found ways of treating his own ailment. He woke up one morning realizing that after all the failure and pains he has gone through, he still want’s to become the a doctor. He keeps a positive attitude about himself that brought him success and self improvement. Not only did he improve himself, but also the life of the people around him and the quality of life.
Did he succeed?
As you can imagine, he went on to be the best damn doctor his country has ever known.
So, how does self improvement become one and the same with success? Where do we start? Take these tips, friends…
- Stop thinking and feeling as if you’re a failure, because you’re not. How can others accept you if YOU can’t accept YOU?
- When you see hunks and models on TV, think more on self improvement, not self pitying. Self acceptance is not just about having a nice slender body, legs, or great abs. Concentrate on inner beauty.
- When people feel so down and low about themselves, help them move up. Don’t go down with them. They’ll pull you down further and both of you will end up feeling inferior.
- The world is a large room for lessons, not mistakes. Don’t feel stupid and doomed forever just because you failed on a science quiz. There’s always a next time. Make room for self improvement.
- Take things one step at a time. You can’t expect Rome to be built in just one day. Self improvement is a one day at a time process.
- Self improvement results to inner stability, personality development and dig this …. SUCCESS. It comes from self confidence, self appreciation and self esteem.
- Set meaningful and achievable goals. Self improvement doesn’t turn you into the exact replica of Cameron Diaz or Ralph Fiennes. It hopes and aims to result to an improved and better YOU.
- Little things mean BIG to other people. Sometimes, we don’t realize that the little things that we do like a pat on the back, saying “hi” or “hello”, greeting someone a “good day” or telling Mr. Smith something like “hey, I love your tie!” are simple things that mean so much to other people. When we’re being appreciative about beautiful things around us and other people, we also become beautiful to them.
- When you’re willing to accept change and go through the process of self improvement, it doesn’t mean that everyone else is. The world is a place where people of different values and attitude hang out. Sometimes, even if you think you and your best friend always like to do the same things together at the same time, she/he would most likely decline an invitation for self improvement.
A Word From Fit In Wholebody
We should always remember that there’s no such thing as ‘over night success’. Its always a wonderful feeling to hold on to the things that you already have now, realizing that those are just one of the things you once wished for. A very nice quote says that “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” We are all here to learn our lessons. Our parents, school teachers, friends, colleagues, officemates, neighbors… they are our teachers. When we open our doors for self improvement, we increase our chances to head to the road of success.
