Top Seven Self Improvement Myths

Self Improvement MythsOne of the many wonders of the digital age is that it’s never been easier to locate advice on how to live a happier, more productive life. A seemingly never ending library of self-help literature is now just a Google search away.

The only problem with the wealth of information available online is that not all of it is true. Just about anyone can call themselves a life coach. And literally anyone can call themselves a self-help blogger.
The result is a lot of self-help advice that isn’t necessarily all that helpful.

Should you find yourself embarking upon a self-improvement journey, an excellent place to start is therefore learning just whose advice you shouldn’t be listening to. Here are seven of the most popular self-help myths currently circulating online.

Needless to say, they should all be ignored.

Self Improvement, Spiritual Growth and Economic Conditions

Trees Sunrays

Do you think that only people who have no financial and economic problems have the time for self improvement and for meditation?

Some people do think so.

Do you agree with this line of thinking?

It is possible that this idea arose, because people who are in a better economic condition have more free time, and they want to fill it with some activity, with some hobby. If this is the case, then are they earnest enough or they are just dabbling?

Self improvement, meditation and spiritual growth do not depend on one’s economic condition.

It is true, when you are in a better financial condition it easier to afford buying books and participating in workshops. However, there are many instances of people living in difficult conditions that care about education, about improvement, and about spiritual growth, and therefore, find the means and the time for them.

The truth is that self improvement, meditation and spiritual growth do not depend on one’s economic condition. It is your mind that says they do. It does not want you to make changes and improvements, since it is afraid that this might shake its concepts and beliefs, and endanger its supremacy over you.

Can You Improve Your Life?

Can you improve your life?

Can you achieve success?

Do all the books, courses, webinars and workshops on self-improvement, personal growth and on success really help?

Yes, they do help, but not always, and not all people benefit from them equally.

Do you spend a lot of money on books courses and workshops, but nothing changes in your life, nothing improves in your life?

So why is that?

Let me ask you, do you really and truly want to make changes in your life?

Would you do anything to achieve the success you want?

Would you invest time and money in study, research and the necessary actions to improve your life or achieve your dreams?

  • Most people have dreams, but back in their mind, deep in their subconscious mind, they do not really want their dreams to come true. They are afraid of the changes in their life that the achievement of their dream might lead to, and in a subconscious way resist the changes, postpone them or refuse to take action.
  • There are people who feel they do not deserve to better their life.
  • Other people are deep in negative thinking.
  • People love the familiar and afraid of the new.
  • People have dreams, but are afraid to follow their dreams.

Self Improvement – What Do You Improve?

By Remez Sasson

The term self improvement is a bit misleading and is sometimes erroneously interrupted. What do you really improve? You don’t improve your “self” and you don’t improve your “spirit”. You learn to develop certain skills that can help you go through life. You learn to look at things from a different, broader viewpoint, and you learn to forego limiting thoughts and habits.

You don’t improve something that does not exist in you. You improve and develop some skills that are already in you, but are weak, in a dormant state, or negatively expressed.

Self improvement is actually not “Improving yourself”, so much as changing your point of view, changing the way you look at yourself and the world, and strengthening and developing certain skills.

Self improvement is about developing:
  • Stronger willpower.
  • Better self discipline.
  • Better concentration.
  • Some degree of emotional and mental detachment.
  • More patience.
  • More tolerance.
  • Getting rid of negative or weakening habits and developing new ones.
  • Learning to think more positively.
  • Learning to be more kind and loving.

This is a partial list of the aims of self improvement.
