Are You Committed To Self-Improvement?

How does one know if an individual is willing to achieve self-improvement? This is a question with no definite answer. It will all depend on the individual. 

Many people have goals, dreams or ambitions but don't necessarily have the skills or knowledge to achieve them. They may have considered self-improvement and creating their ideal life but haven't any idea the way to even begin to form the plans and take the actions required to make them a reality.

Some people have a vague idea on the way to set about self-improvement. These are people that believe if only they had a far better job, or had been given better opportunities, or met the love of their life, or whatever else, everything would be fine and that they would be happy.

They feel that their happiness or lack of happiness is set by external factors and their thoughts and actions are of little consequence.

Some believe that if only that they had extra money they might have whatever they need, and this would bring about self-improvement.

They may have spent little time brooding about what they really want from life, and don't really believe there's anything they can do to make their dream a reality anyway, aside from buying more lottery tickets.

Other people don't even know what they really want from their lives and have little idea what would really makes them happy. They seem to only drift from day to day, week to week, month to month, and year to year, and do as little as possible to get by.

They may have seemingly secure jobs and be earning enough to live relatively comfortable lives. They seem happy enough and haven't any great ambition to realize anything more from their lives than they currently have.

So, is self-improvement important?

It is important that we are all constantly growing and developing through the course of our lives. Challenges make us grow and develop, albeit we don't make the conscious decision to try to do so, it happens due to solving challenges that face us.

Up to a particular age, we learn through formal education and that we still learn through our experiences for the remainder of our lives. We have to find out and grow to affect everything that life throws at us. We all have to go through self-improvement in some form or another.

The pace of modern life is much faster than it has ever been. For anyone living in modern society there are more opportunities to try to do anything that you simply want to try to do with your life than ever before.

But there's also more competition than ever before, and ever-changing technology means there really are few, if any ‘jobs for life’ anymore. It is now normal not only to vary jobs very often throughout our working lives, but even to completely change careers and industries.

Because the workplace is so competitive, people that are ambitious and hungry for fulfilment know they have to find out new skills and knowledge to stay ahead of the pack. To attain this, self-improvement is needed.

These are the ones that are going to not only keep their jobs, but progress within their chosen field, and would likely be readily employable in several organizations or industries because of the need for their skill set and desire to improve themselves.

Commitment to self-improvement could well be the deciding factor that determines how your future will end up.
