Be all you can be, however, it’s not easy to get there. Often time, you may see yourself as somewhat contented with your life the way things are, but it becomes hard to think of anything else when where are real issues to be discussed, still, you aspire for something deeper and more meaningful.
In the life, we’re all pelted with problems. But honestly speaking, it shouldn’t even bother or even hinder you to becoming all you ought to be. Aspirations as kids should continue to live within you, even though it would be short-lived or as long as you could hold on to the dream.
Below are the 9 questions you should ask yourself in the path to be all you can be.
1. What do you really want?
The question of the ages. So many things you want to do with your life and so little time to even go about during the day.
Find something that you are good at which can help realize that small step towards improvement. Diligence is the key to know that it is worth it.
2. Should you really change?
Today’s generation has taken another level of redefining ‘self’, or at least that’s what the kids are saying.
Having an army of teenage nieces and nephews has taught me that there are far worse things that they could have had than acne or maybe even promiscuity. So how does that fit into your lifestyle?
If history has taught you one thing, it’s the life that you have gone through. Try to see if partying 70’s style wouldn’t appeal to the younger generation, but dancing is part of partying, watch them applaud after showing them how to really dance than break their bones in break-dancing.
3. What’s the bright side in all of this?
With so much things that happening around you, sometime it seems to be no room for even considering that light at the end of the tunnel. No matter whatever the situation you are in, you can still see it as something positive without undergoing so much scrutiny. And if it’s a train at the end of the tunnel, take it for a ride and see what makes the world go round!
4. Am I comfortable with what I’m doing?
There’s always the easy way and the right way when it comes to deciding what goes with which shoes, or purse, shirt and what are not. It doesn’t take a genius to see yourself as someone unique, or else we’ll all be equally the same in everything we do – variety brings in very interesting and exciting questions to be experimented.
5. Have you done enough for myself?
Have you, or is there something more you want to do? Discontentment in every aspect can be dangerous in large doses, but in small amounts you’ll be able to see and do stuff you could never imagine doing.
6. Are you happy at where you are today?
I know it is an unfair question, so let it be an answer! Example, you love being a good and loving mom or dad to your kids, then take it up a notch! Your kids will love you forever. The same goes with everyday life under every situation.
7. Are you appealing to the opposite sex?
Maybe you don’t have an answer to that yet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t try it though. Whether you shape-up, change the way you wear your clothes, or the look of your hair, or even your attitude towards people, you should always remember that it always be for your own benefit.
8. How much could you have?
The true fact is there is no such things on having things too much or too little, but it’s more on how badly you really need it. You’d like to have lots of money, no denying that, but the question is that how much are you willing to work for it?
9. What motivates you?
What motivates you? It’s an answer you have to find out for yourself. There are so many things that can make one’s happy, but to choose one of them may be the hardest part. It’s not like you can’t have one serving of your favorite food in a buffet and that’s it. So try it piece by piece.
Always remember that, self-improvement is not just about the physical or philosophical change you have to undergo, it’s something that you really want, so don’t ever never giving up before you even start that journey.
