Self Improvement Tips That Will Make Your Life Better (Personal/Spiritual Development)
1. Use Dream Year to create a year, month, and weekly plan for yourself.
This is my goal-setting workbook that shows you how to get anything you want in life. I created this so you can learn how to be happy and success while pursuing your #1 goal. There are a ton of templates and workbooks for you to use to get the results you want in your life.
2. Find a way to express gratitude daily.
This is one small way to be happier every day. It can change your perspective to a positive mindset, which will carry over into all aspects of your life.
3. Stop being a perfectionist.
It gets in the way of your happiness (and it annoys other people)!
4. Get comfortable saying “no”.
If you don’t, other people will decide the course of your life. Instead, say “no” to what you don’t want to do, so you can have room for what you do want to do.
5. Work through past issues with a therapist.
If you have past issues to work on, take care of them now. They will only get worse if they’re unresolved.
6. Forgive regularly.
When you forgive, you set yourself free from resentment and pain. It’s not about the other person. It’s about you.
7. See the world with a glass half full mentality.
You can learn to train yourself how to be happier and have a positive attitude. The book The Happiness Advantage by Shawn Achor can help you learn how to do this.
8. Be an abundance thinker (not a scarcity thinker).
Abundance thinkers welcome competition, default to trust, and are optimistic about the future. Scarcity thinkers fear competition, assume mistrust, and are negative about the future.
9. Listen to podcasts during your commute.
One great way to learn while you’re wasting time is during your commute. I am obsessed with The Life Coach Podcast for self improvement. Start at episode 1 and go forward. It’s life changing.
10. Evaluate your experiences.
You don’t learn from your experiences. You learn from evaluating your experiences. So, evaluate yours to change and learn.
11. Start a blog about something you love.
Blogging is a great way to focus on personal development. It’s the way I have, and I can’t imagine my life about it. Blogging is a platform you can use to learn about any subject.
11. Stay motivated.
Like Zig Ziglar said, “People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.”
12. Implement supportive habits.
It’s not enough to rely on motivation. You need to implement habits into your life.
13. Limit your TV to less than 30 minutes / day on average.
TV is such a time suck and it’s completely passive. Instead of watching TV, evaluate a better use of your time that aligns with your values.
14. Start meditating.
Meditation can be one of the most useful ways to relieve stress and find inner-contentment. It also helps with anxiety. Feeling stressed? Try a meditation app to get started.
15. Get out of your comfort zone.
Personal development means growing as a person. And the only way you’ll grow is from new experiences, which often require you to get out of your comfort zone. The more you get use to this, the easier it becomes.
16. Have faith in something bigger than you.
Believing in God or another higher power can make your life more meaningful. Decide what you believe in and commit to that.
17. Go to church.
Or wherever suits your fancy! Just get around people who believe in something like you do. It’s good for your soul.
18. Know what you want from your life.
If you don’t know what you want, you’ll wander somewhere you may not like. To avoid this, set visions in each life category so you know where you’re headed.
19. Set goals.
Goals will help you create a roadmap of how to get where you want to go. Learn how to set goals to get started using the SMART method.
20. Create a mission statement for your life (or one area of your life).
Using a mission statement can help you focus on your number one priority. This helps make decision-making easier.
21. Have a go-to activity to get you out of a funk.
Whatever works for you – do that. Whether it’s going for a run, taking a nap, painting, etc. Find an activity you do that helps you clear your mind.
22. At the end of the year reflect on the prior year by going through your calendar.
Something I learned from 15 Invaluable Laws Of Growth by John Maxwell and have been doing for years. It helps you prioritize your time and money by looking at what you did the year before.
23. Journal regularly.
Journaling is a way to express your thoughts in writing. It will bring you clarity in a deep way. A side effect of journaling is documenting life events, too. I am obsessed with the Five Minute Journal and The Productivity Planner – I use both every day. Find what works for you.
24. Read at least one book a month.
Reading will help you grow and develop. Reading is where you can excel with self-education.
25. Wake up early.
You can benefit from starting a morning routine every day. Push your alarm clock time back one minute every day until you’re waking up early enough to do your morning routine.
26. Create a morning routine that you do before work.
If you prioritize going what’s important to you before you start work, the day won’t escape you and you’ll actually do these things. Examples include journaling, working out, praying, etc.
27. Keep notes in a digital folder.
Set up an online account where you can keep notes (I use Evernote). It’s amazing what you’ll discover you want to remember (notes from books, quotes you hear, podcast episodes, etc.).
28. Read personal development blogs.
To continue to learn and grow, spend time reading up on personal development blogs.
