Surround yourself with people who want you to do well. Evaluate what isn't working and eliminate those habits. Learn a new activity or skill. Have compassion for yourself and for others.
When it comes to creating new habits and working to achieve your goals, don't get carried away. There should be no such thing as “starting next week” or “starting tomorrow”. You are working to improve yourself. Self-improvement is any activity or goal that improves your quality of life, helps you achieve your full potential or leads you to make your dreams come true.
Improving your knowledge, skills, character or mentality are good ways to move towards your self-improvement goals. The important thing is that you are growing as a person. Why? Because if you're not growing, you're dying. Growth is one of our six human needs and is essential to living a full and happy life.
