Self improvement tips can certainly help to get started with your quest for personal growth, new levels of success and fulfilment. If you are interested in self improvement and personal growth, then you most likely are on the lookout for the most effective strategies to get you the personal development you want.

When you want to achieve success in life, it is often wise to seek out the best strategy that will ensure you reach your personal growth, goals and achieve results that you imagine. So, calling on years of experience studying personal achievement, I produced seven really simple self improvement tips. This is my way of giving back and assisting those who are just discovering the potential for greater success in their lives.

1. Keep A Daily Journal

Achievers are writers. This seems to be the lesson from history’s greatest, who were all prolific writers. The process of journaling gives you a chance to empty your mind of thoughts and get a clearer understanding of what’s going on. You can use a journal to help develop your self-awareness, which, in turn, boosts self-confidence and flexibility in character.

“Writing in a journal each day allows you to direct your focus to what you accomplished, what you’re grateful for and what you’re committed to doing better tomorrow.” – Hal Elrod

2. Raise Your Standards

What separates achievers from the average person? Studies show that it isn’t education or intelligence that makes the difference. They seem to have a quality that differentiates them from the pack. This quality is the ability to see themselves as a success in a particular venture, long before they have any idea how they will achieve this success. They have a high standard for what they expect to happen. Then they usually have a high motivational drive towards the goal.

3. Meditation

This one of the more important self improvement tips, and the most neglected. With meditation, you can achieve a reduction in stress by ridding your mind of “toxic thoughts” that build anxiety and worry behaviours. You can also improve your general health by allowing yourself to recover in this way. If you practice meditation along with the other six tips outlined here, you will find the power increase in each of the other methods.

4. Affirmations

Positive affirmations are a very powerful way of making changes in your personality, your behaviour and your life. It is recommended that you create one positive affirmation for each aspect of your life you would like to change. For example: relationships, money, health, career etc. It is then down to you to commit to reading them to yourself, out loud, two times each day. I think you’ll like the results.

5. Written Goals

It’s surprising how many people know about the importance of proper goal-setting for achieving success, and yet few people actually accomplish many of them. Writing out your goals is a vital process, because it begins the process of resetting your expectations from not having the goal, to feeling what it will be like to achieve it. As you do this, you reset your expectations in your mind. You can further break down goals into a plan of action that you can act on every day. This makes success of your long term goals more likely.

“Goals. There’s no telling what you can do when you get inspired by them. There’s no telling what you can do when you believe in them. And there’s no telling what will happen when you act upon them.” – Jim Rohn

6. Balance

The effects of one area of your life usually has an impact on all the others, in one way or another. The act of self improvement must take this into account and seek a balanced approach. For example, if you are having challenges in your relationship, then your financial and physical health could suffer if focused exclusively there. If your health is getting neglected, you may find it hard to achieve your financial and relationship goals, and so on.

Regardless of what your goals are, you will want to be well balanced and strive to achieve success in every area, holistically. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts, and each area in balance will bestow benefits on every other area. This is the foundation of great success.

7. Become a Teacher To Deepen Learning

Of all these self improvement tips, this is probably the most important. When you teach others about what you have learned about personal growth, you give them a valuable gift, but you also deepen your own understanding at the same time. You don’t even need to have a direct relationship with those you are teaching these principles to. The internet gives you an easy way to write about your experiences and philosophy.

As you can see, it is not difficult to become a motivated and highly productive person. You just should follow the above-mentioned advice. Besides, you can elaborate your own tips that reflect your life goals properly or adopt these ones. In any case, you must start moving forward to “new you” if you want to succeed in passing this stage. Keep calm and be passionate.

As we raise children, we often teach them that grit, perseverance, and resilience lead to mastery and success. They do. But what are we teaching them about their intelligence and capacity to learn?  When children believe that they have been born with predetermined skills and abilities or with a fixed intelligence that they cannot change, they are more likely to avoid challenging subjects and create artificial limits on themselves that will impact them into adulthood.
