Here are 14 Ways to Become a Better Person

1) Compliment Yourself
If you are that person waiting for compliments, stop waiting. Wishing and waiting for others to give you a compliment won’t happen.

It’s would be great if your friends or family acknowledged your work with a compliment but the truth is most of your goodness is not recognized even with the simplest of gestures such as a compliment.

This could cause damage to your self-worth and start negative patterns. Instead give yourself compliments, Love should always begin with you.

When you finish a task such as baking a cake, take a moment to tell yourself “Great Job!” Even look in the mirror and say “I look damn good!” Commit to a ritual of complimenting yourself daily.

2) Don’t Make Excuses
If you are that person that has an excuse for everything, stop! Before you make the next excuse, ask yourself, what can I do to improve it?

Take a second, be honest with yourself about what can I do better? Free yourself from the denials and acknowledge your actions, by changing your mindset you can live a much healthier and incredible life of integrity.

Have time to create daily positive momentum, which would lead you to move forward. Mahatma Gandhi says “It is wrong and immoral to seek to escape the consequences of one’s acts.”

3) Let It Go (Practice Forgiveness)
Letting go, is the hardest thing to do. Not only because we are letting go of something we really want and desire, or someone we really love; but mostly because we tend to see it as “I failed” or “I wasn’t enough” or “I should have done this or maybe that.”

Yes, you are the one that got burnt. So, why do you have to walk around holding grudges and resentment?

Your ego mind wants to keep you safe. If you get hurt your ego mind likes to replay it over and over, keeping the memory alive to prevent the same situation from happening again.

Letting it go of both self and others is the most powerful spiritual tool we have. Forgiveness is the key to freedom. Clinging to anything such as anger, possessions or anxiety will not allow us to be free.

This is by no means easy to put into practice. A great way to let things out is to take your feelings to your journal. Be completely real and raw. This a private conversation to yourself, so don’t hold back.

Sometimes journals might not be enough and the situation is to intense. In this case you might need a therapist or other professionals that can give feedback and guidance.

4) Be Helpful
Being helpful to other people is never going to get in the way of your goals or success.

The sooner you realize that we’re really all in this together, and that there’s enough room for everyone to succeed, the more successful you’ll be at achieving your goals in life and in business, in business you have to develop a helpful mindset.

5) Listen to Others
Some people just wants to be heard. They have so much going in their life, anyone who is willing to just sit and listen to them can be their lifesaver.

By just by allowing them to speak and make them feel comfortable which will cause a positive effect on you.

6) Educate Yourself
Go to events in your profession or business, engage in conversations, listen to lectures, take courses, and learn whenever you can.

7) Keep Your Life Organize (Your Home, Your Business, Your Finances, Etc.)
We are not born organized, we have to cultivate healthy habits, which help us stay organized. By making your home a priority, take stock of what your finances looked like on a weekly or monthly basis.

When you organize your life, you’ll have a clear mind, feel better and be more productive.

8) Healthy Lifestyle
Living a healthy lifestyle can mean several elements such as, managing your stress level, obtaining good quality of sleep each night, exercising, not sitting too much my apple watch helps to reminds me when I need to stand and don’t drink too much alcohol.

This sums up of the obvious behaviors that describe someone who is healthy and taking care of themselves.

Creating a healthy lifestyle doesn’t have to mean drastic changes. Making small changes in how you live can really make a difference to become a better person. You may be surprised, just do it!

9) Relax
Sometimes we work so much it can be physically and mentally taxing on our bodies. Relaxing is something everyone should be able to do and something we actually have to learn and practice.

Taking the time to meditate, clear your mind and relieve stress. When we say “relax”, this actually means doing nothing. Take a step back and reflect on your past accomplishment and choices.

10) Surrounds Yourself with Like-Minded People
“You’re the Average of The Five People You Spend the Most Time With.” ~Jim Rohn
I love this quote by Jim Rohn. This relates to the law of averages, in theory the results given in any situation will be the average outcome.

It’s important to surround yourself with people who makes you happy, People who makes you feel good, laugh and help you when you’re in need. Your environment shapes who you are and who you will become.

11) Read Daily

Do you ever have a feeling of excitement whenever you talk about something you love or notice a difference in the tone of your voice and body posture?

Chances are you are passionate about that topic, which mean others will notice. In the end, this will lead to making the conversations more fun and lively.
