Self Improvement, I Don’t Know What to Do!

Check our Latest products!

Self improvement is about making your life better. I hear from people, and to be honest, sometimes myself, the phrase, “I don’t know what to do!” Truth be told, we do know what to do.

Who’s to blame?

When we say we don’t know what to do we are really trying to avoid the responsibility for the action that we know, deep in our hearts that we should take. Why do we do this?

If we say we don’t know what to do and then someone else suggests something and it doesn’t work out, then they take the responsibility. We can claim that it was their advice that led us astray. If we just go out and do it and it turns out badly, then who can we blame?

The opposite side of the coin is also true; however. If we take someone else’s advice and it turns out well, then we have to give the credit to them. If we had just gone out and done what we knew needed to be done, we would have been able to take the credit for ourselves. The blame game is not the real issue here though

The long wait.

If we wait for someone else to come along and validate what we already know, we may wait a long time. Also, since this person may or may not know our situation intimately, they may give us bad information. We may actually know better than the outside expert! Why wait? Why not dare to take the chance?

How do we know?

How do we know if what we think is right? Research! When we are talking about self improvement, there are a multitude of books and audio courses. You can read online from countless coaches, and teachers. Visit self help and self improvement blogs. It won’t be long and you will start to see a pattern in what these people teach and advise you to make your life better.

If three of four of them are saying the same thing, you begin to get the idea that what they are saying probably has some validity.

Been there, done that, didn’t get no T-shirt!

Some will say that they tried this or that and it didn’t work. I say that they didn’t try it long enough, expecting instant results, or half heartedly, not really believing that it would work in the first place. All the self improvement techniques or courses will do you no good if you never take the situation in hand and do something about it.

The responsibility, the task is yours. We often instinctively know what to do or we have heard it many times. We are just afraid to go out and have a better life. What do you have to lose? Why not step out and follow your heart and your mind to a new and self improved life?
