People spend minutes, hours, days, months, and years on trying to be the best person that they can be. There are all kinds of self-improvement programs out there for you to study and learn, but the success of your growth boils down to three things: Personal Growth, A Responsible Mind, and Diligence.
We all should strive to be the best person that we can be. Some do what's necessary in order to do this while others are haphazard in their approach. Before we get into our three target areas let's see what determines whether we sink or swim in our pursuit of life.
How you accepted and perceived information from your family and friends has a big part on you arriving currently in the place that you are now.
2. Social institutions
Whether it's the school system, or workplace, these two environments have played their part on what you have learned, been taught, or influenced by being a product of your environment.
This here has played, and continues to play, a major role in the daily lives of people. Whether its environment, social media, or any other kind of media, these determine whether you have a strong character or are poor in your resilience.
But, there is a way that you can work on yourself and being you. Let's look at our three points of success in growth. By making the most of these you can override the folly and unproductiveness of the prior three points.
1. Personal Growth
Everyone should have the mind to want to grow personally, but unfortunately everyone doesn't. In order to grow up and grow tall you have to invest in the development of your growth. Everyone should also want to grow beyond the place that they are currently. Staying immobile can make you a stagnant person.
Becoming stagnant keeps you where you've always been, and it can destroy your productivity to propel forward. Every day you should read or listen to something that helps you to become a better you. This is what helps to contribute to personal growth.
2. A Responsible Mind
You have to face the fact that your current standpoint in life, and whether you go on to grow or fail, is your responsibility. You can't play the blame game and say that it is someone else, or something's fault for why you are where you are. You have to develop a responsible mind and take responsibility for your actions. Whether you succeed or not you still have to own up to your actions. Doing this shows a sign of growth and maturity in your character.
You have to exert diligence and focus at being the best you that you can be. We know that in order to be the best this is not an overnight process. We are not a microwave case, and you can't snap your fingers and be the perfect person. It takes work, and it takes you being consistent and disciplined about becoming and being the best person you can be.
And we all should strive with diligence to be the best that we can be. This is your life, and you can either invest in the success and progress of it or sit back and let it wither away to less than the best.
