There are many people available who can, or claim to be able to, help you learn about yourself. You may gain valuable insight into your thoughts and feelings from your friends or even by speaking with professional teachers and gurus.
Avoiding decisions means missing opportunities in the arena of self improvement. This may mean you need to make decisions without having perfect information about the outcomes of those decisions. Being able to make good decisions sometime requires you to trust your instincts. Even when you make a bad decision, you can learn valuable lessons from your experience. If you make a wrong move, you will know next time to do something different.
Keep a journal with you so whenever ideas hit, you can record them. Carry some kind of paper with you at all times. If an idea grabs you while you are on the subway, write it down, then do something about it when inspiration strikes.
Give others compliments. Instead, do the exact opposite and treat others with kindness and respect. This kindness will make you feel better and help you to treat yourself nicely as well.
Create your own pep talk. List the things that you love about yourself on a postcard. Carry it around, and read it when you need to. Make a video of yourself reading it and watch it as often as you need. What’s the point?
Start contributing to an emergency fund. Most of the time, it seems that the smallest unexpected expense adds more credit card debt. By setting aside five dollars each week, you will be one step closer to having a modest emergency fund. These reserves can be of great assistance now and in the future, because the amount owed will drop, rather than build.
Learning more about yourself is the best way to help yourself grow. Remember that throughout your life, you yourself are your own closest friend, so treat yourself right and work to improve yourself.
