No matter how silent your surroundings are, everyone has a voice in their head. This is the voice that sometimes shouts or sometimes it whispers. It often makes unreasonable demands but sometimes it offers sage advice to you. There is the most frequent voice that says “you need to change and you need to do better”. This call for bringing a change in your life either makes you feel guilty or maybe it inspires you. But smart people know that in order to achieve their dreams, they have to listen deeply to that inner voice and recognize what kind of personal change is actually required.
It seems daunting to think about bringing the change especially if you are not learning any more skills to add to your skillset. But if start taking baby steps, you can improve a lot as an individual:
1. Find the direction:
The first step towards personal transformation is when you decide your direction. Decide where you want to reach in life and the reason behind it. Once you know why you want to change yourself to a better person, it will become easier to cover the journey. Therefore, find your own reason that why you want to change and why is it necessary.
2. Get advice:
You can never reach your goals without having any directions in mind. It is easier to get lost and become hopeless. But even in that hopelessness, if you have the advice of someone, your journey towards your goals will become easier. Ask for help in knowing how you can bring that change by the mentors who have walked the same path as yours.
3. Get out of the comfort zone:
You cannot achieve anything until you leave your comfort zone. Change does not come until you get uncomfortable or face the hardships. But leaving the comfort zone does not mean taking bigger steps. You can start by improving one per cent each day and with time; it will bring a massive impact on your life.
4. It will take time:
All the successful people you see around did not achieve success overnight. There are years of struggle behind the success they achieved. Therefore, be prepared for the timings of the process and for the uncertainty that will come along the way. The personal transformation happens with performing daily habits, practicing hard and repeating over and over again.
5. Value yourself:
When you are on the road to transformation, the biggest motivator would be you. You need to have faith that you have the ability to bring a change and no one else is going to do that for you. If you face failures along the way, don’t lose hope because it will teach you a lot more than you can learn otherwise. Value yourself and believe that you have what it takes to bring a positive change.
Personal transformation is nurtured by the people around you. If you want to change in a profound way that fulfills the aspirations of the individuality self, you will need your social support system. Therefore, make deep and authentic connections with your own self and with others.
