I read a lot about motivated leaders in order to find out some of the things they did differently to attain person success. I have tried incorporating these things into my life and I have seen amazing changes. However, I believe I still have a lot of room for improvement. For this reason, I would like to learn some practical tips on how to improve myself so that I can be a better employee, parent, sister, mother, and wife.

The topic of personal success is very dear to my heart. This is because, for a long time, I tried looking for tips and guidelines on how to improve myself. Like you, I would read about inspirational leaders. I would choose one motivated leader and try emulating some of their habits to improve myself. This worked but it did not give me the results I needed. With a lot of research, I was able to identify important keys of success that I have used and would highly recommend to anyone who wants to succeed. They include:

  • High self-esteem: the reason successful people are where they are today is because they believed they could achieve their dreams. To succeed in life, you need to believe you can achieve anything you set your mind on.
  • Take Responsibility: The reason why a lot of people do not achieve their goals is because they are constantly looking for someone to blame for their shortcomings. Try taking responsibility for your mistakes and your shortcomings. Doing this gives you control of your life and makes you more focused and creative. 
  • Write down your goals: Do not assume that you have all your goals in your mind. Writing down your goals makes it difficult for you to forget them. Most successful people write down their goals and go through them every day to ensure they do not forget what they are working towards.
  • Plan: It’s not enough to have a list of goals on a paper. You need to create a step-by- step plan that you can follow to achieve your goals. This makes it more likely for you to achieve your goals compared to if you approach them in an unfocused manner.
  • Balance: Do not let your career life take over your life. You need to spare time to be with your family and friends and work on other different projects. This approach makes it possible for you to succeed in all areas of your life.
  • Positive attitude: You will not always have a smooth ride when you are trying to be successful. There will be high and low moments. You need to learn to be positive even during the low moments. This is important because it enables you to remain focused on the end goal. 
  • Support system: There is no self-made man. You need help from the people around you to be able to achieve your goals. Do not be afraid to ask for help, opportunities or even financial assistance when you need it. Try doing these things, I assure you that you will not have any trouble teaching creating motivating or doing any other thing you are passionate about.

I agree. Contrary to popular belief, success is not only made for some people. It can be achieved by anyone who sets their mind to do it. However, you will need to make a few adjustments in your life to succeed. For instance, if you want to attain financial freedom, you might need to start living within your expenses and avoid wasting money. You will also need to learn about investments and other things that will push you closer to your goal. It is only when you make changes that you will succeed in your life. Therefore, the first thing you need to do after listing your goals is identifying some of the things you need to do differently in order to achieve them. Change might not be easy at first but with commitment, you will see amazing improvements.

The frequently asked question in the quest for achieving personal development is how to improve myself. It is a crucial question that everybody ought to ask himself or herself. The problem is not in finding the answer. Many leading answers are available but years down the line many people do not record any significant change. Personal success requires you to have self-discipline. Having all it takes is not the end. Managing yourself and putting the instructions into practice requires a determination that can be achieved when you discipline yourself. Set your goals for what you want, how and when to get it.
