Growing Day By Day - Becoming A Better Person

December 26, 2023


At some point in our lives, many of us find ourselves overcome with the desire to become better people. While we are all uniquely capable of navigating this world, we may nonetheless feel driven to grow, expand, and change. This innate need for personal expansion can lead us down many paths as we develop within the context of our individual lives. Yet the initial steps that can put us on the road to evolution are not always clear. We understand that we want to be better but have no clear definition of “better.” To ease this often frustrating uncertainty, we can take small steps, keeping our own concept of growth in mind rather than allowing others to direct the course of our journey. And we should accept that change won’t happen overnight—we may not recognize the transformations taking place within us at first.

Becoming a better person in your own eyes is a whole-life project, and thus you should focus your step-by-step efforts on multiple areas of your existence. Since you likely know innately which qualities you consider good, growing as an individual is simply a matter of making an effort to do good whenever possible. Respect should be a key element of your efforts. When you acknowledge that all people are deserving of compassion, consideration, and dignity, you are naturally more apt to treat them in the manner you yourself wish to be treated. You will intuitively become a more active listener, universally helpful, and truthful. Going the extra mile in all you do can also facilitate evolution. Approaching your everyday duties with an upbeat attitude and positive expectations can help you make the world a brighter, more cheerful place. Finally, coming to terms with your values and then abiding by them will enable you to introduce a new degree of integrity and dignity into your l! ife.

As you endeavor to develop yourself further, you can take pride not only in your successes, but also in the fact that you are cultivating consciousness within yourself through your choices, actions, and behaviors. While you may never feel you have reached the pinnacles of awareness you hope to achieve, you can make the most of this creative process of transformation. Becoming a better person is your choice and is a natural progression in your journey of self-awareness.

    Those were some “feel good facts” — self actualization is indeed a lifelong process. It is proven that evolutionary change has a far greater success rate for internalization/maintenance than does revoltionary change.

    Very timely, given that many of us plan to execute change to coincide with change in the calendar year!

    Hi. First of all, thanks for putting so many valuable self-development articles. I find them really useful and inspiring.

    I am one of the many who have trouble Communicating comfortably with people.. even with my own colleagues. Perhaps you can create another category solely for articles on “Communication”… articles can range from how to greatly improve communication… how to talk like a winner.. how to grab attention.. how to talk with just anyone.. how to use effective body language… etc etc..

    Additionally, I am having a bit trouble trying to change / drastically improve my personality around the people who already know me before. For example, I’ve spent so much time trying to improve the way I speak, the way I walk, etc. I have noticed my improvements when I practice this stuffs with the people new to me or with a stranger. Which means, I can feel the ‘new me’ when I’m around the people I just met. However, when I’m around those people who knows me as a silent person with low self-confidence (eg: my family, my colleagues, my close friends), I turned back to the old me. It’s like I just can’t be the ‘new me’ when I’m around them… I was struggling to do something but I just can’t….

    Would you put up an article how to do this? Because most articles that talks about self-confidence never mentioned about situation like this.

    Thanks a bunch

Got something to say?
