How to make things better than they are now

Would you say your current situation was perfect, or is there still room for improvement?

I would suspect that there is definitely some room for improvement, isn't there?

Since nobody is perfect, then seldom is their situation perfect. We all occasionally make mistakes. Sometimes we do the wrong things or fail to do things correctly; and on top of that, Mother Nature can intervene to mess up our plans.

So the current situation is not perfect, and there is plenty of room for improvement.

How can you make things better than they are now?

The answer to that is essentially simple: Decide to.

The first step to making things better is to decide to make them better. If you don't make a firm commitment to yourself that you will make things better, then things won't improve on their own.

The second step to making things better is to decide what elements to focus on. Since you cannot change everything at once, you need to decide what things you will focus on first. We suggest you focus on your health, your finances and your relationships.

We figure that if you were healthier with better levels of energy and vitality, and if your money situation improved, and if your relationships with work colleagues, family and partner were improved, then you would be happier.

The third step is to set some goals. For each category. Set specific, realistic goals.

  • Set goals to improve your health. Improve your nutrition. Improve your sleep and improve your exercise programmes.
  • Set goals to improve your finances by either cutting back on spending, or earning more money, or both. You need to earn more than you are spending. Most people spend more than they are earning.

  • Set goals to improve your relationships with people. Brush up on your charm skills. See if you can be more charming and friendly and happy towards the most important people in your life.

It is interesting to note how often people are harsh, rude and bad tempered with the people who mean the most to them.

Have you ever marvelled at how badly some married couples talk to each other, or how they bad-mouth their spouse to others? If the person is important to you, make it your business to talk the situation into a pleasant state of affairs. Develop the gift-of-the-gab and see if you can talk your way into their good books, not talk your way into trouble.

The fourth step is to build plans and take action. Now you know what you want, you need to build some plans and swing into action. Do the things that will make the difference.

Do the jogging. Eat the apples. Earn the money. Make the effort. Do the work. Give the compliments. Make the reservation at the restaurant and take him/her to dinner. Wine and dine the important people in your life.

Step five. Keep doing it. Don't let this be a one minute wonder. Let it be a lifestyle change. Your goal is always to improve on the current situation by a never-ending process of thoughtful, goal-directed action.

Don't stumble through the day. Invest in the day. Make some positive investments today that will come to fruition tomorrow.

Each day, make sure you do something to improve your chances for tomorrow.

That is how you will make things better than they are now.

Goal Setting Training

Goal Setting, Communication and Conflict.

You cannot achieve the goal you failed to set. So the first step to achieving your goal is to set it.
Then you need to communicate the goal to others and you need to handle the inevitable conflicts and problems you will get whenever you try implement your plans. This course will help.
