Are you someone who likes to grow and be happy? Do you always seek to improve yourself and become a better version of yourself? If you do, then it’s incredible! We have something in common. I’m very passionate about personal growth and happiness.
As a passionate and devoted advocate of growth and happiness, I’m continuously looking for ways to self-improve. I’ve compiled five of the best hacks which might be helpful in your growth journey. These hacks are from Bhanu Srivastav who is famous for his bestselling debut novel Hacker 404 Happiness not found.
At present, Bhanu is working with Canara Bank at their Head Office in Bengaluru and writing his next novel side by side. For Bhanu, writing is a way to release the complex and often convoluted thoughts occupying his mind while releasing the stress felt throughout the day. Not only does this take the perceived burden off his shoulders, but it also provides Bhanu with a method in which to discover his true self while finding a deeper hold on life.
According to him, self-improvement occurs once you pursue to form yourself better in any area of your life and produces a desirable change within you.
Some common areas that most of the individuals seek self-improvement are, with their health, work, productivity, fitness level, resilience, family life and love life. Or, maybe you’d wish to become a better friend by recognising the areas in your life that you would like to enhance the initiative.
Focusing on self-improvement and inner happiness has presented many opportunities in our life like speaking at live events, writing for online publications, travelling the world and doing everything we wanted to do.
This can happen to you, too. But for things to change in your life, in order to get where you want to be, you have to grow into the person who is ready for that change. Personal development is vital to your success.
Write it down and tell a lover or loved one about it. You are more likely to stick to your goal. Maybe you’d wish to become a far better friend?
If you would like to become a better friend, make short term goals. For example, tell yourself that once you are around your friends, you’re getting to mention something friendly or positive about them each time you are around them. The next week, you can focus on replacing any negative thoughts with positive one’s.
When you achieve an individual goal, celebrate. You deserve a pat on your back! Buy that pair of earrings you’ve had your eyes on.
Everyone makes mistakes, learn from yours. Make changes within yourself to realise your goal. The important thing is that you don’t hand over.
Self-improvement does not happen overnight. Be persistent together with your goal to become a far better person.
Remember, there is always room for improvement in our life. Challenge yourself and keep making new goals to shape a far better version of yourself. Self-improvement is an ongoing process! As per Bhanu, life is a one-time gift, and we must paint it with our best colours.
I can write listicles with five hacks, 15 hacks, 41 hacks or even 10,000 hacks to improve yourself, but if you have no intention to commit to your personal growth, it doesn’t matter what I write. Nothing is going to get you through. We are liable for our personal growth — not anyone else’s. Not your mom, your dad, your friend, me or anyone in this whole world.
Choose to plan your personal growth and embrace yourself to a life-long journey of growth and happiness. Kick-off your growth by picking a couple of the steps above and start dealing with them. If you want to see improvement in yourself, you must take some actions.
The results might not be immediate, but I promise you, as long as you continue working on it, you’ll start seeing positive changes in yourself and your life.
