How To Do Self-Improvement Without Driving Yourself Crazy

Self-Improvement is… well… the art of improving yourself.

It’s a personal process that involves self-reflection, humility, and the courage to look at the things that aren’t working in your life. 

Some of you have made such a decision. You’ve decided, say, that you need to be more assertive, more understanding, more loving, more open.. Or that you need to look for ways to care for yourself, be your own strong person, create happiness and well-being in your life….etc

That’s all great. And I’ve been on this path long enough to know about the pitfalls too.

It gets lonely. And even dark at times. Because you’re doing something nobody can do for you.

Self-improvement implies seeing yourself in an honest light. And sometimes, what you see does not seem “improvable”. Like: You’re this way, and couldn’t possibly expect to be a different way!

But see when that happens, the whole process is essentially turned upside down.

Because now, you’re not dealing with the inherently positive and invigorating challenge that is personal growth.

Now you’re fighting what you perceive as being a losing battle. And that’s when self-improvement is more exhausting/depressing than anything.  

That’s why I want to share with you an understanding, of what it takes to complete self-improvement projects. To find the answers you heart yearns for, and move on with your life.

Without feeling like a lone ranger on an impossible mission. 🙂

Self-improvement is a noble endeavor that is as rewarding as it is challenging, and that’s what makes it worth it.

How To Reach Your Goals And Not Get Frustrated In The Process

What I want to share with you guys today is a mindset that some will say defines successful people. Actually it’s not even about successful people. It’s about the successful handling of goals. How you can approach your goals in a way that doesn’t set you up for frustration when things (inevitably) get tough.

And if you’re in the process of building something personal, creative and/or ambitious, then you know how important this is.

Here’s Why You’re Not Motivated (And How To Find Motivation)

Not feeling engaged by your work? Your decisions could be out-of-line with what naturally gives you motivation. This understanding is crucial to make wise decisions about your future and just how you choose to invest your time really. The kind of decisions you can still feel great about 10, 20, 30 years after you’ve made them. And we already know there’s not too many of those… 🙂

The 6 Components of Self-Confidence

Confidence is one of those traits that allows you to do a bunch of things, right. It allows you to be comfortable around people, it helps your relationships, it helps your production at work, and it just helps your life, right. If “feeling good” came in consumables, it would probably be advertised as some kind of confidence elixir. 🙂  

That’s because the two go hand in hand. So today I want to help you discover specific things you must work on to improve your confidence in any situation.   (more…)

How To Keep Yourself Grounded as a Sensitive Person

Cautious, solitary, intuitive, creative, passionate… Those are just some words that are synonymous of being considered “sensitive” in society today. And if you identify as a sensitive person, then you’re going to want to read this.

I’m going to share with you how to feel less anxious about the daily pressures that are put on you, and why you can feel more confident about your unique, and frankly quite beautiful nature (in my humble opinion).

Happy People ‘Just Know’ These 3 Things

Happiness is probably one of the all time vaguest concepts.. It’s very subjective, or at seems that way. It seems like what makes me happy isn’t necessarily what would make you or someone else happy. And researchers like Martin Seligman and Shawn Achor have certainly confirmed that through their work on positive psychology and happiness, respectively. 

I want to talk about what we do know for sure on what it means to be happy. And what friends you consider “happy” might know that most of us overlook or seem to forget all too easily. 🙂
