Well, that is a good question and I am glad you asked. I am not perfect and I have many flaws.

If there is anyone that can strive to be a better person, it is me.

But, it never hurts to try something new that may just help to improve your life. And in the worst case scenario, if I am of no help to you, you can always go back to your already awesome life.

Why Should You Become a Better You?

I am assuming you are an amazing person right now and you have already accomplished many great things and done a lot for others in your life. However, my opinion is that if we are not putting enough efforts daily to be a better person, we begin to feel comfortable in the daily norm and set in monotony. Like many of you out there, I admit that I  hate the daily norm. I love making everyday different than the previous day and experience something new and different. We should, I feel, challenge ourselves to be better every single day so that we grow and develop in our life and embrace the gift of life!

1) Second chance:

We all do mistakes. It is human tendency to make mistakes. Just because it might be a mistake, I would want to miss someone genuine just because of a little flaw. I believe in giving a second chance to anyone. But I never give third chances as I do not want to make a fool out of myself.

A second chance always helped in retaining a good relationship.

2) Using my heart while thinking:

Many a times, I have been in situations where I was in a fix and unable to take a right decision. That is when I started to listen to my heart over my mind, and I am glad that I was very content with those decisions.

Hence, when in confusions with decisions, just try going along with your gut instincts. Mind will always follow your decisions!

3) Help others to fulfill their dreams:

Ask someone if there is anything you can help them with. Ask others if there is anything that you can do to make their day better. Try being the reason behind their smile! This leads to self-fulfillment on knowing that you have improved the life of another person. Helping others to achieve their dreams brings in a lot of content within ourselves.

4) Being Empathetic:

Putting yourself in other’s shoes and seeing things from their perspective makes you a better thinker and brings in the empathy from within.

You will know how other’s perception are in relation to ours.

5) Love yourself:

The secret behind one’s confidence is being in love with what you are. Love yourself, appreciate the gift of life you have been given with. There are many out there in the world, who have been deprived with the gift.

So, start loving yourself, only then you can make the world a better place to live in!

6) Learn from other’s experiences:

What we learn from our own experiences is just like a drop of water in the ocean. Life is vast; there are many people out there with many other experiences which you are not subjected to. 

Learn from them, get the morale from their experiences, it will help you in self development.
