Yesterday I heard someone say, “You can always get better. No one can stop you from doing that.” The words stuck with me.
I’m always looking for words that inspire me. Being inspired is something that I like to experience on a regular basis. Here’s the thing about inspiration: you never know how it’s going to happen…where it’s going to happen…or when it’s going to happen. The words might be written or spoken. They might be sung in a song or stuck to the bumper of a car. The opportunities to be inspired really are unlimited. Start looking. Keep looking.
There’s nothing wrong with wanting to be better. I believe so much in Be Unlimited because I feel that way. Every time an idea comes to me and I sit down to share it with you, I hope that we’re both going to change for the better.
I’ve connected with people from all over the world who tell me that Be Unlimited has changed what they think of themselves and inspired them to be and do more. That’s something we have in common. Even when I’m not writing, I’m always looking for ways to be and do more in my life.
Becoming better is a choice that you get to make for yourself. You are the one who gets to decide in what ways you’d like to see yourself improve. Sometimes you need to take a closer look at parts of yourself that you may usually avoid. That might be the best place to start.
Let’s say that you always find yourself getting into trouble at school. Let’s say that this trouble usually happens when you’re with a certain group of people. Let’s say that you never get into any trouble when this group of people is not around.
Take a closer look at the situation. What’s been happening? You’ve been getting into trouble at school when you’re around a certain group of people. What would you like to start happening? Hopefully, you want to stop getting into trouble. That’s a good choice, but it’s only the beginning. Next, ask yourself what needs to change.
Being better starts with a choice. The actions that follow should support that choice. Actions always mean more than words, but here they mean the difference between improving yourself and not changing at all. If you want to stop getting into trouble at school, the necessary action is to avoid the group of people that draws trouble to you.
Think of yourself as a project, one that you can better with the choices you make and the actions you take. As with anything, getting better will take practice. In many situations, the work will require more effort than you might have thought. But if the end result is a better you, then it’s definitely worth it.
So, what are you waiting for? Start making a change today.
