How do you know if a person is willing to achieve self-improvement?
This is a question that as no fixed answer because it will always depend on the person.
Many people will have dreams, ambitions or goals but quite often they will have no idea how to go about achieving them.
Some people may have thought about what it would be like if they made changes in their lives and what their ideal life would be like, but in the same breath they have no idea how to even begin, how to make plans and or even how to take action.
They often have not given great thought into what it is going to take to turn their dream, ambitions and or goals into their reality.
What Do You Want?
I meet a lot of people who have a vague idea on how to go about improving themselves. Quite often they believe that
- If they only had a better job, or
- If only they were given the opportunities or
- Meet the love of their life.
Of whatever else, that everything would be great and they would live a happier life.
They feel that their lack or happiness or their happiness is totally decided by external factors and what they actually think and their actions have very little value to their lives.
Whilst some others believe that if only they had more money they could have and be whatever they wanted and this would help them to get on their way to self-improvement.
Unfortunately many have spent little time actually thinking about what they want from their life, and do not really believe there is anything they could do to create their future apart from may be buying more lottery tickets.
Whilst there are those that don’t even know what they want from their lives and the saddest part is that they also have no idea on what would make them truly happy.
They just seem to drift from day to day, week to week, month to month and year to year and do no more than just getting by.
They go through life almost like the walking dead or living zombies.
This is not to say that they don’t have secure jobs and earning enough money to live a kinda comfortable life and may also seem happy enough to the outside world but they have no great ambition to achieve anything more from their lives than what they currently have.
These kind of people will normally say things like “this is my lot”, and “I am content”.
Is Self-Improvement Important?
The real reality is that we are constantly growing and developing throughout our lives.
Our circumstances, experiences and situations make us grow and develop, even if we don’t make the conscious decision to do so.
Up to a certain age we learn through our formal education and then we will continue to lean through our life experiences. We learn to deal with things that are thrown at us in our lives. We all have to go and grow through self-improvement.
Modern Life Moves Fast
Now modern life move really fast, in fact it life moves at a faster pace now more than ever. For anyone that is living in modern society there are more opportunities in our lives, so that we can do anything that we want to so with lives more than ever before.
The other side of the coin is that because of this there is also more competition than ever before, and with constantly changing technology the change in the employment means that the so called “job’s for life” are gone.
The challenges that this brings to you is that it is now the new normal to change jobs quite often throughout our working lives and this also means that in most cases people are not only changing jobs frequently, in many cases they are also change careers and industries.
Changing Jobs Trends
Now the workplace is so competitive that the most ambition and hungry for success people know that they need learn new skills, and keep up to date and knowledgeable just to keep ahead of the game.
The only way to achieve this is self-improvement.
These are the people that are the ones that have a much better chance of keeping their jobs and get the promotions.
These are also the people that are the most readily employable.
So you see having a commitment to self-improvement and personal growth will become the deciding factor in how your future will turn out.
