Anyone thinking about 2010 Self-Improvements?

The start of a new year is the most popular time for self-improvements. A new year for most signals a time for new beginnings, fresh starts and making a point to improve the new year over what we did in the old year.

Many people start by making New Year's Revolutions about quitting a bad habit, losing weight, making more money or getting a better education. All of these self-improvements can be achieved if you make the committment to the improvement all year and not just while the newness of the year is upon you.

You must find your motivation and keep it in front of you every day of the year to remind you why you want to achieve the self-improvment so that you will continue to do the things you must do in order to achieve your self-improvement goal.

As 2009 draws to an end and our thoughts turn to how we will make improvement for 2010 make sure we put a lot of thought into what will motivate us to keep on actively striving for the completion of that self-improvement goal.

A motivation can be a picture of what the self-improvement goal is such as a picture of a dress we want to wear when we reach a certain dress size or a picture of the diploma we are striving to earn. The picture can be of a financial goal such as a new car, dream home or vacation trip.

The motivation can be a poem or the self-improvement goal printed in large letters on a sign that we hang somewhere prominent in our home or office so we will see it everyday.

May we all achieve our self-improvement goals in 2010.

Taking Inventory

We all from time to time feel the need to take inventory of how our life is going. We examine goals to see if they have been achieved, our physical state is accessed to see if it is in need of improvement and we may also take a good hard look at our personality or level of education for areas that are weak. Taking inventory is a common event for most retail businesses. It is a time spent taking stock of the state of the valuable goods sold in the business. Inventory gives a clear picture of where the business stands and what changes need to be made in order to improve the status of the goods or products of the business.

Human beings take inventory at certain times of life including highschool graduation, college graduation, at the time of marriage, before the birth of a first child, at the time our children are preparing to go off to college and then again when we retire. There may be other time in life when it seems a good time to take inventory, but those are the major times when we tend to think that it is a good time to take a good look around and see what things can be improved and what things are going smoothly.

During the time that we are taking inventory, we take note of areas of our life that fall short of earlier expectations, or areas where we have failed to reach goals we have set for ourselves. Taking inventory gives us a starting place for new goals. Most people will either be validated or receive a big shock when things don't come out the way they were expected to. Taking periodic inventories throughout the stages of life can lead to a better understanding of who we are and where we are going so that when we reach those expected milestones in life we can be happy with who we have become.

Have you taken inventory lately?

Motivation is an important factor for any self-improvement project just as willpower is a factor when it comes to achieving goals. Discouragement and lack of proper motivation can keep you from achieving self-improvement objectives. You alone have the power to devise methods that will help to keep the motivation and willpower strong.

Visualizing your goals by posting pictures around your home or place of work can help to remind you of your motivation. They can also help you to remember why you are making the self-improvements and keep you from getting discouraged.

A self-improvement contract that you make with yourself that is a written statement of your self-improvement desires, goals and motivators can be a terrific tool for achieving self-improvement.

Keep positive-minded people around you and remove those who are negative. People who inspire you and encourage you towards achieving your goals will benefit you while you are doing a self-improvement project.

It is also important to read inspirational books that will help to improve your attitude. Books that contain success stories about others who have achieved similar self-improvements can be a great motivator.

The best way to guarantee successful self-improvement is to keep your goal simple. Wordy goals are complicated goals. An achievable goal is simply written, describes the behavior desired, and the situation and the problem that needs attention.

An achievable goal is specific. Do not use general terms in your goal statement. General terms are open to interpretation. The goal should be specific about who, what, where, how, and when regarding the self-improvement goal.

An achievable goal is also one that is written, shared with others, and above all attainable.

Did you know that approximately 75% of people working a job today are unhappy? One reason for this unhappiness is that they believe that the talents they have are wasted in that job. The hours may be long, your path to promotion blocked, or people in power do not realize your full potential. Too often the pay is not equal to the amount of time or effort you put into your job. All of these things are excellent reasons for self-improvement.

If you are unhappy in your current job, improving your skills or education can help you to receive a promotion or find alternative ways of earning an income in which your skills and knowledge will be appreciated and rewarded with not only appropriate pay but recognition as well.
