The term self improvement is often used interchangeably with self development or self help and has become very popular in recent times. It is an inner process, which requires inner work. It is not enough to simply read articles and books. You also have to practice what you learn, and this requires time and effort. You cannot achieve meaningful change in an hour or two, or even a week or two.
Change takes time, and you must have the motivation, a burning desire and the perseverance. The goal is to live a fulfilled, happier, and self actualized life. Do not be despondent. As a wise man once said, a journey of a thousand miles, begins with one step. And the journey will bring it’s own rewards and blessings. As you go along this self improvement journey – remember Ancora Imparo," - "I’m still learning'' Reaching your full potential is an innate gift which is with each of us from birth.
Coping with the ‘rat race’ has left many people with ‘a feeling of emptiness’, ‘not belonging’ or ‘trying to find themselves’.

Of particular interest is the concept of Motivation. What is motivation? How does it influence our actions? How can we use self improvement tips to increase motivation? Self improvement and motivation go hand in hand.
Motivation is the psychological act that spurs us on towards a much wanted goal. It can sustain behaviors so that we can reach our goals. Many people confuse motivation with emotion. This is largely due to the fact that many self improvement theories are based on an individual ‘finding their feelings’, and having sustained ‘will power’.
A new theory, more fitting for the modern era is the concept of conscious living. This concept is a breath of fresh air to self improvement efforts.
One of the basic assumptions is that a human being can act regardless of our thoughts and feelings and once we embrace our goals and live lives true to ourselves, will power no longer becomes and issue.
This is truly a refreshing approach and I invite you on my journey through the self improvement landscape. It is a deeply personal journey for me, for which there is no end in sight.
