I read recently that September is Self-Improvement Month. With the kids going back to school and the family getting back into a routine, it's a perfect time to revisit yourself and get into a better self-care routine. If you want to improve upon yourself, this month's organizing challenge is for you. First, let's define self-improvement.
What is self-improvement?
Dictionary.com defines it as "improvement of one's mind, character, etc., through one's own efforts." Make sense right?
Self-improvement starts with awareness. If you aren't aware of what is stopping you from getting what you want, how can you change it? You can't. First, you must draw attention to the area that needs to be changed.
To help you find those area blocks, I compiled a list of areas that could need improvement. Answer this question for each of the areas below and write 3 main blocks down on paper.
What blocks me from being the best me in ….
my behavior toward things
my belief system
my learned lessons
my goals and passion
When going through these areas, think of the big picture and where you want to be in 5 years, 10 years. What is your ideal scenario? What will make you happy?
Here is a form to print below to help you:
To help you find these answers, I have added some links to other posts I have written about the subject.
It's important to remember this is not a "get rich quick scheme", it will take time to change these areas, dismantle your old beliefs and change your habits. So, if you draw attention to the particular areas you want to change, create a plan and then execute the steps to complete your goal, you will do it!
