If you want to succeed in life, you should not waste your energy on activities
that do not bring any benefits.
Such useless activities include surfing the Internet without any purpose,
watching TV, worrying and wasting money.
When you are involved in such activities, you have no or little energy left for
activities that can create a better future. It is worth prioritising and
accomplishing important tasks first, and then if you still have enough energy,
you may decide to do the unimportant.
2nd Self Improvement Activity: Focus on one task at a time
If you want to get perfect results, you should only concentrate on one activity.
This way all your energy will go into it and you will accomplish it perfectly.
If you waste your energy on several things at the same time, you will get
average results because you will divide your energy between the activities.
3rd Self Improvement Activity: Control your thinking
To avoid chaos in your mind resulting in chaos in the outside world, you should
try to observe your thoughts. Once you start doing that, you will notice how
many negative thoughts you get daily.
By observing negative thinking you will be able to emotionally disengage from
it. As a result, negative thinking will affect you less and you will notice that
your days are getting more peaceful and positive.
4th Self Improvement Activity: Get organised
When you live in an organised manner, you do not suffer from stress and your
life is peaceful and balanced.
To start living this way, you should start planning your day in advance. This
will eliminate any stress caused by being late to a meeting or forgetting to
complete some task.
You should also live in tidiness because by keeping your home clean you also
keep your mental state clear and peaceful. Such mental state will benefit you in
many ways, including improved memory and less negativity.
5th Self Improvement Activity: Live in the present
Although this self improvement activity may seem strange to you, it is a very
important activity that many ignore. The majority of people do not live in the
present. They either dwell on their past or daydream about the future. They seem
to forget the most important time of all - the present.
You should enjoy every present moment because your current state of mind always
manifests in the outside world, creating your future accordingly.
Therefore if your main mood is very positive, you will experience only happy
days. However, if you dwell on negative thoughts, you are sure to encounter many
obstacles and misfortunes in the present and days to come.
6th Self Improvement Activity: Complete each task in a perfect manner
Whenever you are working on some project, try to accomplish it in the best way
possible. Always ask yourself 'Is this project turned out as perfect as it could
possibly be?' If the answer is no, try to correct or add something to it until
there is nothing that you can improve.
This way you will make sure that each single task you accomplish is done in an
excellent manner. By doing this you will create successful future because you
cannot possibly fail if you only get perfect results.
Also, when you entirely focus on one task excluding everything else, you will
notice that you start enjoying the task. If you concentrate on the task but
still do not enjoy it, that means that you probably see the task as a means to
an end rather than the process.
You should start focusing on the process itself to find enjoyment in the task.
Such enjoyment will fuel motivation and you will accomplish everything quicker
If you enjoy your work, you will put only positive energy into it. As a result,
your completed tasks will bring you success.
