As you may all know, I am the author of my debut book “Let it be Known.” Before I released this project I made an honest assessment of some things that I felt I needed to work on within myself. One thing that didn’t fit well (pun intended) was that I had gained a substantial amount of weight. I began to feel physically sluggish to go right along with the aches and cramps which I knew was the result of this weight I was carrying. I was always an athlete so not moving my body for so many years, I realized this was the penalty I was now enduring. With responsibility and continuously working non-stop in your daily grind, eating the wrong foods, not exercising, we lose ourselves in the process and the weight gain seems like it comes from out of nowhere. It’s said that you can acquire wealth but if you’re not healthy, you will spend that same wealth on your health. After feeling heavy and my body began to ache, I came to the conclusion that I had to make some personal improvements to go along with some the goals I was working hard to execute with business. The first thing I did was detox my body, change my diet and start an exercising regimen. A year later I am fifty-pounds lighter and feeling a thousand percent better with myself and probably added ten more years to my life by making the commitment and dedication to do better. Today, I continue to live a different and conscious lifestyle of better health practices because I refuse to not be my best. I share my own journey through “Self-Improvement” because we tend to downplay just how much we become our investments.
Overall, improvement is a necessity by all means but Self-Improvement is non-negotiable and should be the utmost priority in your world. We sometimes end up neglecting our own advancement by stifling our own development by investing in outside entities FIRST. By doing that, we are placing ourselves second and possibly last which not only defies self-preservation but it defeats our own relevance. I firmly believe that strong relationships are contingent on a strong personal relationship that starts with the person in the mirror. You can’t have any healthy relationships with anyone if you are not in a relationship with yourself. Keep in mind that we are all under construction. With that understanding, we are not perfect and there are things that we all should be diligently and consistently working on to make ourselves better. Identification facilitates in converting our weaknesses and flaws to strengths. There are some that live in a delusional state by fooling themselves into believing that there’s absolutely nothing wrong with them. Each day should consist of becoming the best person possible. By making those strides we are able to convert our current challenges into future triumphs.
I wanted to share a few areas that you may need to consider improving in;
· Health- If you are not healthy, nothing in your life will be.
· Mindset- Keep in mind that you are your thoughts.
· Objectives- Don’t neglect your own dreams as you work your job and steadily invest in someone's dream.
· Character- Strengthen your weaknesses by focusing on those areas that pose a challenge and discomfort. Being the best person will attract the best.
I hope that I can inspire just one person to make some self-improvements starting today!
