Why self improvement is important

Lots of people have dreams, ambitions or goals but do not know how to go about achieving them. They think about what would constitute the self improvements and their ideal life, however they have no idea how to even begin to make plans and take the actions required to make them a reality. They believe that if only they had a better job, or had been given better opportunities, or met the love of their life,  everything would be fine and they would be happy. They feel that their happiness or lack thereof is decided by external factors and their thoughts and actions are of little consequence.

Lots of people believe that if they only had more resources, if they had more money or more of whatever they already have, things would make it much better on their way to self improvement. Other people do not really know what they want and may even have little idea what would really makes them happy. They seem to just drift from day to day, week to week, month to month, and year to year, and do little more than just about get by. Other people place their self improvements in the hands of some external (or higher power) power. They believe if they only lived their life a certain way, this higher power would improve them in all other aspects of life. 

The reality is that throughout our lives we are constantly called upon to grow, develop and improve ourselves to meet new challenges. And these challenges aren't going away. Sometimes, circumstances make us grow and develop, even if we do not explicitly make the decision to do so. We can learn many things through formal education, however in this day and age of technology and overload of information, we need to have an open mind when it comes to learning and improving ourselves consistently. The pace of life is getting faster and faster. We are called upon to process so much information in less and less time and to make decision at a faster pace than ever.

The good news is that there is an incredible amount of resources at our fingertips, if we chose to learn and improve. The internet if full of resources to help us in whatever area of our choice. We can take classes online at our own leisure. We can listen to podcasts, we can print material and read them later, we can watch videos, we can listen to various things while driving to work, ... etc. There are truly countless opportunities for us to learn.  

As I'm writing this, here is a list of things that come to mind: we can learn new languages, learn how to code, learn how to improve public speaking skills, learn how to improve our presentation skills, learn entrepreneurial skills, learn time management and productivity, ... and the list goes on and on.

A commitment to self improvement and personal growth may well be the deciding factor in how anyone’s future will turn out.
