All rags to riches stories start with a rag. Without the drive and an ambition all great leaders, entrepreneurs and successors would have not even come close to greatness. We wouldn’t have Jobs, Prince or Hemingway, Imagine that world. I believe in self improvement. The mindset should change, you shouldn’t always try to be better than others but rather, better than you were.
“Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Do not bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself.”
– William Faulkner, Award Winning American Author
I believe self improvement is the root of greatness and a value all should hold close to their core. Self-improvement is the improvement of one’s character, mind, associations, and life through one’s own efforts. Life changes only as a result of the effort we put into improvements we make by the actions we take.
Knowing your strengths and weaknesses will guide help you on the path to self improvement.
You decide what your want in life, visualize it in your mind, and do what necessary means it takes to achieve that desire. The work you put in is the work you get out.
