What does self help, personal development, and self improvement actually mean? In a nut shell, it’s exactly what it says it is – anything to improve and develop yourself – such as a career, relationships, health, psychology, and more. All are used in your quest to build your dream life.
I’ve got a fast question for you – has there ever been a time in your life where you couldn’t wait for tomorrow to come, or didn’t want to go to sleep because you were having such a great time? You need to have felt like that at least once in your life, right? I bet you even have a huge smile on your face now simply remembering those great times.
But here’s the thing, why can’t each second of every single day be like that, for you, me – ALL OF US – living our dream life?
Do you believe your dream life is attainable?
Perhaps you think that I’m a dreamer, if you are – that’s cool, however, what if I told you that this is exactly what my life is like. Furthermore, what if I told you that my life ‘ought to’ be a ‘miserable’, according to some individuals?
Well, that’s the fact of it. You see, I have Multiple Sclerosis(MS), which typically leads to complete debilitation. Among the many symptoms are stress and depression. So how then am I ready to measure my DREAM Life!? Well, the answer is simple – with good self improvement strategies!
I urge you to follow me and make this your reality too. Everybody deserves to live a dream life, and now, with these simple ways, EVERYBODY can.
If you are at all wondering about self improvement or personal development, it’s important to urge you to think – ‘1st things FIRST’. In other words, start from the bottom up.
Image this, what if I gave you a recipe to make a cake. You wouldn’t begin from step five, would you? Self improvement is no different, therefore let’s do things properly and start from the beginning.
Five steps to building your dream life.
STEP ONE is the most vital step of all, and it plays the largest part in what we all crave in life – Happiness! This step is also the most difficult. This is were you begin to build your life’s foundation values, but not just any old values, they have to be ROCK SOLID values.
STEP TWO helps to suit the items to your self improvement puzzle. Basically, you’ve got to recognize, or have a theory about, what life is. Knowing this, will help you to shape your life. My theory on what life means, is this – “Life is a never ending roller coaster journey of CHOICES and EMOTIONS”. Ultimately, everybody desires to be happy.
STEP THREE is to search out, or perceive, what YOUR purpose in life is. Don’t worry, this is not as tough as it sounds. We all have the right tools for doing this – Our EMOTIONS. Yes, it is true, your emotions can be your ally, or worst enemy, and typically at the identical times. So, ask yourself, “What’s it that I really love doing?” Currently take that a step more and ask yourself, “What FEATURES do my passions have that I really like?”.
STEP FOUR involves really constructing your DREAM Life. This bit will stretch your self improvement prowess to the limit, but don’t worry, this is very doable. This step relies on the options you identified in step 3, and one of the most powerful personal development tools around – GOAL SETTING!
Try this for each of the different departments of your life. All of this comes along and forms your own, personal development plan. And now for the extremely exciting bit…
STEP FIVE – Live the life you have designed in your personal development plan. In other words, live your DREAM Life!
Naturally, there’s a lot more to it than that, but hopefully you get the general gist of self improvement, and what is required to build your DREAM Life!
It takes simply one second to choose to change your life, so what are you waiting for? Embrace change, and most forward.
