Is the best person the richest? Is it the smartest? Is it the one with the most luck? No, the better person is the one who works to improve themselves and their character every day.
Sometimes, we assume that our flaws or problems are just who we are. We might be mean, but that’s just who we are. We might be anxious or prone to anger, but that’s just who we are. This attitude can affect us and others as well.
While some aspects of our character might be more difficult to change than others, we can constantly work to improve our character and become better than we were yesterday.
We can change many things. We can become calmer and more stoic. We can grow our resilience and strength. We can nurture kindness and goodness within our souls.
But the change has to come from within.
Sometimes, we might try to look good or appear improved when that’s not really the case. We might show off just to have others assume we are good. But that does us no good.
When we pretend, we just stay on the shallow end of the pool and never change inside. But that change is one of the most satisfying and beneficial things we can do for ourselves.
If we learn to do good and be better mindfully, with awareness and with a conscious choice of what we are doing, it is a transformational experience. It can help us realize our full potential and discover new aspects of ourselves we might not have thought possible.
Transforming yourself is a life-long process. There is really no limit to how good you can be and how much you can improve. It’s all up to you.
When you build up your character, it has a positive impact on every aspect of your life. It can improve your confidence, your relationships, your work, and so much more.
Committing to be better today than yesterday is one of the best things you can choose for yourself.
Try being better today than you were yesterday. You will be surprised by the results.
“If you won’t improve yourself, who will?”
