Self Improvement – Facts You Should Know

When it comes to self improvement, the journey can be a really long one. One which some people unfortunately never start. Whereas others get stuck along the way. Today, I’m going to try to help you with your self improvement odyssey with some facts and thoughts that I have learnt in my time alive. These are all facts that I wish I had known from an earlier age. Facts that would have help speed up my self improvement immensely if I had known about them sooner. Hopefully you too can find a gem of wisdom amongst them.

Self Improvement – Facts You Should Know

  1. The sunk cost fallacy does not just apply to money. It also applies to relationships, careers and a whole lot else. Don’t get yourself stuck in a situation, unable to leave, just because of the time you have already put in.
  2. Sometimes, you are only friends with people because of situations. Whether its work or school or a club. Don’t worry if friendships end and look to work on the ones that truly have a solid foundation and meaning to you.
  3. It does not matter how great you (think) you are, there is always someone who will dislike you. Don’t try to please everyone you meet.
  4. Just because you feel someone is trustworthy, doesn’t necessarily mean that they are.
  5. Not everything you think needs to be said. Silence is golden. Learn to exercise tact and restraint.
  6. Want a secret to be kept? The only way to guarantee this is to tell no-one.
  7. Be genuine in your apologies and learn from your mistakes. We all make them, it’s ok to admit it.
  8. You cannot save everyone.
  9. Don’t get trapped thinking about the past. Take lessons from it and move forward. Build yourself a future.
  10. If you have toxic people in your life, it’s perfectly ok to cut them out. Even if they are family.
  11. Don’t let loyalty stand in the way of a good career move. There is no such thing as company loyalty.
  12. Save a little money whenever you can. A little over a long time can add up to a great amount. Having a buffer against bad shit will lower your stress and bring you more happiness.
  13. Time accelerates. Do everything you can do enjoy your life and don’t turn down opportunities. We regret the things we didn’t do, not the things we did.
  14. If someone constantly talks shit about others to you, they probably do the same about you behind your back.
  15. Don’t try too hard to snag a partner. Desperation is not a desirable quality. Having your shit together is though.
  16. Eat properly and healthily 90% of the time. Your body and mind will thank you for it as you get older.
  17. Stop trying to be too cool, it will make you boring and less likely to try new things.
  18. Relationships take work. Don’t stop trying and always remember what attracted you to your partner in the first place.
  19. Never ever take up smoking cigarettes. And if you do, stop now. It only gets harder. And in all likelihood, it will kill you.
  20. Everyone is the protagonist in their story. The dick that cut you off? They think it was you dawdling. The guy who insulted you? He thinks he is being honest. Everyone judges themselves on what they are going to do and others on what they do.
  21. Learn to ignore the petty shit. It doesn’t matter long-term.
  22. Don’t be a doormat. Saying “no” is an acceptable answer and you don’t need to expand on it.
  23. Showing up is the most important part.
  24. Appreciate people before they are gone.
  25. Lastly, as a bonus: This little piggy went to market. They didn’t go shopping, they went to the slaughterhouse.
