First Steps to Self Improvement.

Staying calm, composed, and maintaining a strong self-confidence in today’s difficult environment can be difficult, but it isn’t impossible if you follow a few simple guidelines. Here are 6 tips you can use as a beginner’s guide to improve yourself.

Everything and everyone around you can affect your self-esteem. Other people can, intentionally or unintentionally, damage your self-esteem. Uncontrolled people and circumstances can end up destroying your self-esteem and pulling you down in ways you won’t even notice. Don’t let these influences get the best of you. But what should be avoided?

1: Negative Working Environment

Beware of a “doggy” environment where everyone is fighting for advancement. Here, they usually expect people who don’t appreciate working more and won’t be rewarded. In this environment, no one will appreciate your contributions, even if you miss lunch, dinner and stay at work late at night. If you are not very lucky most of the time, you will be working too hard without being helped by others around you. This kind of atmosphere will ruin your self-confidence. This is not just healthy competition, at worst it is brutal and very damaging.

2: Behavior Of Others

Bulldozers, brown nostrils, gossip, whiners, backstabbers, snipers, injured walkers, controllers, chases, callers, blasters, bosses, sluffers – everything you want to call has one thing in common – the overwhelming desire to succeed costs others. Avoid them and don’t try to join them. They can gain short-term benefits from their behavior, but deep down most are very insecure, dissatisfied, and shy. For the most part, their self-esteem is long gone. Seeing someone like this succeed is embarrassing, but don’t join them, you’re better than that!

3: Changing Environment

In today’s fast-paced society, change is difficult, if not impossible. The changes challenge our paradigms and test our flexibility, adaptability and change the way we think. The changes can make your life more difficult and cause you stress, but if it is inevitable, you need to accept it, not fight it, and find ways to improve your life in a timely manner. Try to manage the changes and try to avoid multiple changes at once. If a particular change cannot be avoided, embrace it. The change will be with us forever, we must learn to live with it.

4: Past Experience

We all carry “baggage” – past experiences that shaped us into who we are today, but some live in their past experiences – usually something that hurts and still hurts. It’s okay to scream when you feel pain, but don’t let pain dominate your life as it will turn into fears and phobias. If something painful is happening to you or has happened to you, find a way to minimize the effects. Talk to a friend, family member, or professional and get on with it. Don’t let it continue to rule your life and dictate your future actions. Just because something bad has happened doesn’t mean it will happen again. Learn what you can from each bad experience and move on.

5: Negative Worldview

The television news is full of fear and sadness, and it is true that many people around the world are suffering from war, famine, or other natural or man-made disasters. While I’m not saying that you shouldn’t have to do and do nothing, keep in mind that a lot of beautiful, positive things happen as well. Don’t get caught up in all the negatives around the world. Also learn to seek beauty, building self-confidence, we must learn to be positive in a negative world.

6: Theory Of Determination

Are we the product of our biologically inherited traits (from nature) or the result of influences that we absorb throughout life (nurture)? I believe that who we are is the result of a mixture of caring and nature, so our behavioral traits are not determined. It is true, however, that some things are dictated by genetics (like race, color, and many inherited diseases) your environment and the people in your life strongly influence your behavior. You are your own person, you have your own identity and you decide for yourself. The characteristics of mom or dad are not your destiny. Learn from the experiences of others so you don’t have to make the same mistakes.

Are there born leaders or positive thinkers? I do not believe it. Being positive and staying positive is a choice. Building self-esteem and leveraging positive experiences to improve yourself is a choice, not a rule or a skill. No one will come to you and give you permission to build your confidence and improve yourself. It’s under your control.

It’s hard to stay positive, especially when others and circumstances seem to be conspiring to pull you down. You need to protect yourself and give yourself a chance to stay positive. Improving self-confidence gives you that protection.

One way to stay positive is to reduce your exposure to harmful influences while using affirmations to increase positive influences in your life. Constantly pointing out the good things in your life will minimize the impact of negative influences.
