We're not perfect and we would never be, but we still can improve constantly! and that's what you should aim for, to wake up ever day better than the day before, below are some secrets to help you to improve yourself, it might seem obvious and simple but there's not really any big secrets to be a better person but those small choices you make once at a time, and as much as it seems simple and easy as much as it can make a huge difference:
1- keep things simple you don't have to overanalyze every situation or to overthink about it, yet it's always okay to question, we meant to wonder but let answers reveal itself with time.
2- Get out of your comfort zone. Embrace discomfort, if it makes you feel uncomfortable, then probably it's a good idea to try it. Say yes to challenges and welcome opportunities to grow-up.
3- If you are unhappy, change something. Quit your job. Move. Let go of your toxic relationship. Stop making excuses. You are in control.
4- Leave your fears behind. Don't let it detect your actions and don’t be afraid of your fears. They’re not there to scare you. They’re there to let you know that something is worth it.
5- Be happy not because everything is good, but because you can see the good in everything.
6- Practice gratitude. It's one of your main roads to happiness. If you're tempted to start complaining about something, try to imagine what's worse, imagine those who don't have money to eat, let alone to buy the clothes you wanted though you don't need it for real.
7- Let go the past with all its mistakes, learn from it and move on.
8- You can't be loved by everyone, so give up pleasing people, or avoiding their judgments. Live the way you love, they'll judge just the same. Never allow yourself to be defined by someone else's opinion of you.
9- Travel the world. It's the best way to learn not only about life but also about yourself.
10- Surround yourself only with people who are going to lift you higher.
11- Forgive. When you choose to forgive those who have hurt you, you take away their power. When you forgive you don't change the past...You change the future.
12- Always show more kindness than expected.
13- Don't let your happiness depend on something you may lose. The happiness you find outside is temporary while the happiness you find within is permanent. Seek the true happiness.
14- Be careful who you trust. If someone will discuss others with you, they will certainly discuss you with others.
15- Our prime purpose in this life should be to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them. Be careful what you say. You can say something hurtful in ten seconds but ten years later the wounds are still there.
16- Always end the day with a positive thought. No matter how hard things were, tomorrow is a fresh opportunity to make it better.
17- At the end of the day, let there be no excuses, no explanations, no regrets.
