Occasionally, when all of our concerns, questions, and instabilities are addressed, we always come up with the notion of I wish I was someone else. Typically, we believe that someone or perhaps many individuals are superior to us.- in fact, many people are far more terrified than we are.
We believe that there are individuals who are much more knowledgeable than we are, and even better looking. We feel insecure about our bodies because others seem to be capable of better physical ability than us. Grave issues may come to mind, such as why can’t I have a different personality? All these feelings lead us to self-pitying thoughts which lead us to a vast number of conclusions. We truly believe that we cannot accomplish anything and nothing is going to change for us.
We have these thoughts because we have an inferiority complex; it falls under the category of what psychologists call “Dysfunctional self-concept.” Everyone has developed this complex at one point in their lives, and it is the mind’s way of protecting us from self-inflicted harm. It can also be described as a culprit for low self-esteem and depression.
Imperfection is what we all try to escape, our biggest fear. So we feel that if we could improve ourselves in some ways, change some things about us then these fears would become a thing of the past. We could find happiness and contentment in our lives because we would no longer feel like doing anything is pointless. ‘Why bother?’ becomes such a common question for us, rather than ‘why not?’
This is what we all must overcome if we wish to live our lives happily and peacefully. The process by which we accomplish this is called self-improvement.
In order to begin, you must first acknowledge that you are not perfect – no one is. There were times in your life when you have experienced failure and disappointment. You might feel as if the whole world has had it out for you, but that’s just how life works sometimes. You must bear through it all and come out stronger than ever.
It shall not be easy because you must begin with something that bothers you the most. Everyone has their own internal battles that they must fight, whether it is accepting one’s mortality or finding one’s true purpose in life. Whatever your issues are, just remember to never give up trying to improve yourself.
Improvement is a very difficult process, and it never ends. In order to get somewhere, you must first know where your destination lies. Without a goal, there is no path that will lead you there. You must decide on goals that can help ensure that you are not going completely in the wrong direction. This will then allow you to enjoy the journey.
Plans and blueprints are like maps – they can guide you where you want to go, and help ensure that you don’t get lost along the way. Remember these plans will not always work out – in most cases they won’t. You will most likely change your path time and time again because life does not consist of a straight road. But these plans shouldn’t be abandoned and you shouldn’t back down from an obstacle, life isn’t about giving up after the first time something doesn’t go your way.
Be Proud of Your Accomplishments
You must understand that there is nothing wrong with who you are – there is only something wrong with how you perceive yourself. Do not let the idea of feeling superior to others consume you, it will only make things worse.
Treat success as a stepping stone, nothing more. If you continue to look at your activities and goals with a sense of pride in yourself then there is no end to how far self-improvement can take you.
Be Humble in Defeat
The real test in life starts when we lose. This is when we find ourselves at our most vulnerable – this is the time to see if we still have any fight left in us. It’s easy to overcome failure, but it takes a much more resilient person to learn from defeat and move on with their lives.
Remember that you don’t stop doing something because you failed, you fail because you stop trying. You can improve yourself even when it may seem as though everything is going wrong.
You must look at your life from a different perspective, see things objectively and find ways to make the best of a bad situation. Then move forward with the knowledge that you have gained because of it.
You cannot stop learning, if you do then that’s like burying yourself alive. Discipline is one thing that will always stay with you because you know how to make the most out of anything – this is what makes people great. When it comes down to it there are no limits to self-improvement except those we place on ourselves, and it is up to you if you want to go the extra mile.
Stop thinking of yourselves as second-class people, you’re not beneath anyone. You are as good as everyone else, and you will do great things if you never give up trying to improve yourself.
There is nothing wrong with being a little rough around the edges – it makes life much more interesting! But always remember that people feel better about themselves when they know they have done something for the betterment of their lives.
You are the only person that can make yourself better, and you should not forget that. You deserve to be happy with who you are even if there’s still a lot of room for improvement, don’t let anyone take your sovereignty away from you.
All of us have our instabilities. Nobody is perfect. We always desire to have higher rankings, greater features, and superior body components. However, life does not need to be perfect for people to be happy with themselves.
Self-improvement and appreciating yourself are not problems that need to be addressed by shouting to the rest of the world that you are great and the finest. It’s your acceptance of who you are and that there is nothing wrong with your flaws.
There are so many things in the world that are not perfect, yet people do not complain about it or cry about how life is unfair. So go out there and do something today that will improve yourself, and that you can bet will make your life better.
