Every person dreams of a better life. However, for some people, these dreams remain dreams and other people make them their reality. It does not mean that they are luckier or have a destiny, they probably, just work on themselves and their environment.
It has been proven that if a person wants to change their life, they need to start from the very beginning – from within, with themselves.
Of course, for most of us, this is a challenge that we can hardly deal with and, we give up this dream even before we try (!).
Changes make us feel uncomfortable: we need to change too much to get a noticeable result. Here, we may also speak about the comfort zone. Even though you feel unhappy and disappointed, you still may feel quite comfortable (?). And happiness and satisfaction may be the things that will at first make you feel uncomfortable! This is awkward but this is the reality.
Personal development is about leaving your comfort zone and moving to the next level where you will discover your inner ambitions and the desire to change your life for better.
If you are ready to get rid of your old life and start a new one, start with improving yourself.
The best part about that is that you do not actually need to pay for these changes. Most of the methods that help you become better are free and we have collected five of the most effective of them here:
5 Free Ways To Improve Yourself
1. Stop Criticizing Yourself
The most common problem of the modern society is the level of criticism people face every day. Everyone is ready to tell us what we are doing wrong with our lives, our careers, and our families.
But the main critics are ourselves. We do not make excuses and we are never satisfied with what we do. Every day, we make this tension rise higher, spoiling the quality of our lives and our desire to do something.
If you stop criticizing yourself, you will notice that the life is better and that you do not do everything wrong.
Replace the habit of self criticism by the habit of encouraging yourself and saying thank you for what you have done today.
2. Listen To Your Inner Voice
The tension in our lives makes us deaf to ourselves. Being kids, we listen to ourselves but our parents, grandparents, and society make everything possible to shut this inner voice and make us live according to the socially established principles.
We go to school, then we go to the university, we find a job, then we get married, have kids, get divorced, get married again, and work for the same company because we are too afraid to lose a job.
Such life is nothing more than an imitation of real life. Do you really want to live like that?
Most people have dreams and intentions but never listen to what their inner voice tells them. However, this inner voice is perhaps the cleverest and the wisest, let’s say, person who you will meet in your life.
This inner voice is you and only you know what you want to achieve.
Here, the most complicated point is to get rid of the social opinion that has a strong impact on what you really want. Do you regardless!

3. Develop Your Confidence
Confidence is the only thing that may help you slow down the speed of this life and make the tension a little bit weaker.
When you find some points and ideas in which you are confident, you automatically become confident in yourself, in your life, and in your success.
Please do not mix up confidence with self-confidence. Confidence is a belief in some environmental factors, while self-confidence is a belief in yourself only. Of course, it’s better to mix them up but always avoid extra self-confidence as it leads to arrogance.

4. Become A Student
By learning something new every day, you become better. You discover new perspectives for your personal development and find new spheres where you can demonstrate your best qualities.
The process of education helps you discover fields that are the most interesting for you and fields that are looking for the people with your set of knowledge and qualities.
A permanent process of educating yourself helps you stay in clear mind and be interesting to other people.

5. Share Your Knowledge
Getting knowledge is one half of the process of improving your life. Sharing knowledge is another part and it is equally important for your personal improvement.
First of all, when you share your knowledge with someone, you perceive the information better.
Secondly, when you teach someone, you communicate with a person and communication is one of the most effective ways to discover your inner potential.
And the third point is that by sharing your knowledge with other people, you build your confidence and get to realize that you really have value in this world and someone needs you.
Self-improvement is challenging but it brings life-changing results. If you really want to make a step forward in your new career, to improve your relations with family and friends, or to find some new inspiring moments in your life, change for better!
