As long as you’re breathing, there should be something in your life you’re working on improving. If you’re stuck and feel like you can never figure out the secrets, then start with the following 14 ways.

1. Ask for feedback

Don’t fear for it. Request it. Start with trusted friends and mentors. Tell them you want their honesty. Ask for their feedback on whatever area of your life you want to improve. 

2. Work on yourself

It makes me inwardly giggle when I hear people writing off self-improvement. It doesn’t make sense. Life is about growing and improving. We aren’t born with the answers, why not allow ourselves the grace to improve? 

3. Give up your excuse

Make the commitment for the life improvement you want. Say you’ll do whatever it takes. And then tell the excuses to go away, that you’ll jump over any hurdles that come your way. 

4. Embrace change

Your life will improve considerably when you can let go and swiftly move to the new you and the new direction.

5. Embrace the struggle

Struggle is proof that you’re growing. It’s how the caterpillar transforms into a butterfly. It wouldn’t grow strong wings capable of flying if it didn’t’ struggle out of the cocoon. 

6. Don’t fear the shadows

You will improve your life when you learn to uncover the lessons in the negative, and befriend the shadow side.
