Why we desire self-improvement

We are all drawn to the possibility of becoming our "best self" and work towards confidence and a great career.

Bestselling self-improvement books add credibility to this idea because they are often authored by highly successful people who assure us that we can also find the same success.

Self Improvement

With self-improvement content, you can easily think improving yourself means changing into a new and different you.

While desiring to improve is valuable, it is very different from believing you have to become someone you're not to get what you want.

  • You feel unworthy because you don't think you're doing enough to improve yourself. Self-improvement should help you to recognise your strengths and work on your weaknesses.
  • Unrealistic expectations.
  • Unproven claims. There is no scientific method that can test the claims of self-improvement literature.
  • Impatience with the amount of information and the supposed improvements you need.
  • An oversaturated market of self-help literature. Not everything is beneficial.

Each person has a unique personality and strengths that can help them achieve their goals. You are then the best person to formulate a plan for self-improvement.

To get started:

  • Write down three goals you have for the next year.
  • For each goal, describe what that goal requires.
  • Get an opinion from someone you trust about your goal descriptions and how you can improve it.
  • Break down your goals into small steps.
  • Write down deadlines for each step.
