Self-Awareness, Self-Improvement and Self-Empowerment

Self-Awareness, Self-Improvement and Self-Empowerment

It says regarding Noah that he brought the animals to the ark in couples. But there are things which come in triples, like Self-Awareness, Self-Improvement and Self-Empowerment. The three go hand in hand (sort of a couple). The longer you tread the correct path, these 3 can unite and become ONE.

No wonder all these three concepts begin with SELF. No-one will tread the trail for you. You are accountable to doing “the work”, to tread the triple path.

These are “smart news”. There will be no Self-Empowerment while not Self-Improvement, and not one of the two while not Self-Awareness. One ends up in the other and feed each other at the same time. Thus, the minute you embark on the trail to any of the 3, you are actually embarking on the trail to any or all 3 together.

What’s Self-Awareness?

This is a journey to your inner-self; getting to understand and understand yourself higher; being honest and true relating to who you’re, how you handle your life, how you sabotage yourself and your relationships, how you limit and imprison yourself.

It’s realizing that factors have an effect on your emotions, attitudes, reactions and behaviours throughout your life.

What’s Self-Improvement?

It’s taking the mandatory steps to de-activate the role different factors have exerted over you and prevented you from being “who you really are”. It is a process of “changing into a higher person” in the means you understand yourself and in the ways in which you motivate yourself to “do better” in your life (“doing higher” in line with your definition of its meaning).

What’s Self-Empowerment?

It’s your ability to support yourself to try and do stuff you haven’t had the courage to do before; it’s becoming additional assertive; it’s having a clearer vision of where you would like to travel (professionally and personally); how you want to urge there; that ways in which you intend to apply so as to succeed and to change whatever you feel desires change.

As you walk this triple path you get nearer and closer to changing into whole. In bit with yourself, your needs, fears and wishes, strengths with weaknesses. You expand your authenticity, your ability to talk out your mind, do what feels right for you and not do what doesn’t feel right (which others want you to try and do).

The triple SELF is really one whole

What’s extremely nice about this method of getting nearer to “yourSELF”, is that the minute you embark on the journey to Self-Awareness, Self-Improvement or Self-Empowerment – you have got begun a process of improving who you’re and therefore the life you have. This will no doubt empower you to possess higher personal and skilled interactions.

Zen and Self-Improvement

Zen and Self-Improvement

The immortal Robert M. Pirsig who wrote, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance said something to the effect that, if metaphysics brings something into your life, good for you, if not, forget about it and go on your merry way.

Zen and the assorted Oriental philosophies are for believers. If you’re a believer it will work, if not, it won’t.

Pirsig himself, after making an extensive study of the subject that included a lengthy pilgrimage to India, has obviously taken the pragmatic approach toward metaphysics.

He advocates that it all comes down to attitude. Especially peace of mind. He goes on to say, “Peace of mind isn’t at all superficial, really,” “It’s the whole thing…” And, he adds that, peace of mind is best attained by identifying with what one is doing.

When we identify with what we are doing, we care, and when we truly care and identify with what we are doing, the end result can only be peace of mind.

And, Peace of mind produces right values, right values produce right thoughts. Right thoughts produce right actions and right actions produce work which will be a material reflection for others to see of the serenity at the center of it all.

Peace of mind can best be found in being totally absorbed in the present time. By caring about the task at hand and by giving our all to whatever it is that we are doing.

That, in essence, is what Zen is all about. It is simple really but the human mind find it as difficult to grasp what is simple as to comprehend what is extremely complex. That is the reason that we may have to take a simple proposition and complicate it in order to be able to understand it.

The truth is always simple but not always easy to grasp. So is Zen. The neophyte will be lost with the naked truth, but he will eventually get the fundamental through a long and tortuous path.

Zen is peace of mind. Finding peace of mind is done through caring. And caring is brought about by identifying with the task at hand. Quite simple, yet rather difficult to grasp. Ying and yang. Easy and difficult. Thus is the reality of Zen.

Self-Improvement in Numbers

Self-Improvement in Numbers

I’m an expert in self-improvement. Not the actual act of self-improving, I just happen to be able to summarize about every other book in your local store’s self-help section. It is not something I am proud of, but life is a bumpy road and we find ourselves in seemingly helpless situations where we are willing to search underneath any rock for a clue. Don’t get me wrong; I have certainly gotten better at motivating myself towards more productive and useful actions. Pop psychology, NLP, hypnosis, meditation, various other self-help books – I’ve tried it all, and everyone has their own success stories. However, I’ve noticed there is a key to all self-improvement that is very often overlooked- the importance of quantifying your progress!

The single most important thing to improving your self, next to writing and documenting your progress and lessons learned, is knowing how to objectively measure change.

If you measure your success just based on how good or bad you feel about a situation, then you are misguiding yourself and any progress you make will be short-lived at best. In the realm of true self-improvement, there will be times when you are making great leaps in progress but feel shitty, and other times where you will feel great but aren’t making any progress at all.

It is important to follow your heart, but more importantly you need to rely on the skills of your mind and rational thought. Emotions and feelings are an inevitable part of life (and there are times where they must be embraced) but recognize them for what they often are in the realm of self-improvement – mud in your mind, clouds in your judgment. Be an empiricist, and be aware that a scientist is only as good as his point of observation.

How do you quantify your progress? Well, to put it simply, you assign numbers to the attributes and skills you want to improve. But it gets a bit more complicated then that. How do you think a bodybuilder knows he is improving? Does he judge his progress by the way he feels when he wakes up in the morning? Of course not. Some days he wakes up and he feels energized, other times he wakes up and feels sore, but the bodybuilder knows he is only as good as he performs that day in the gym – there is no other reasonable way to measure his success. He knows he is improving because he can lift X more weight than he could have the month before.

This example is very intuitive to most, but then people don’t follow how the lesson applies to all kinds of self-improvement, whether it is being social, studying habits, eating healthy, learning the guitar, how to throw a baseball, or any other skill. Everything can be translated into numbers – and as the old adage goes: numbers don’t lie.

With that understood, you can’t simply choose any kind of measurement, there is going to need to be some thought put into this beforehand! First ask yourself what exactly you want to improve. This may be something simple and direct such as “how fast I can throw a baseball” or it could be something more complicated and multi-dimensional such as “becoming a better pitcher” (which includes a variety of “subskills”, not just how fast you can throw).

If you find yourself saying you want to be better at something, a quality, then it takes a bit of creativity in coming up with the most effective way to quantify your measurements. You may need to play around with your measuring equation before finding something that maximizes your output (so to speak). For example, becoming a better pitcher, there are a variety of things you may want to pay attention to: win/loss ratio, earned run average (ERA), innings pitched, etc. These are in-game statistics, but there are also things you can work on outside of the game: hours practiced a week. During practice you can break down your focus into more specific attributes: throw faster, throw more strikes (better accuracy), less hanging curveballs, less wild pitches.

First, take the skill or behavior you want to improve, then dissect it down into its most basic parts. Pay attention to any key terms that indicate potential measuring: more/less, faster/slower (speed), heavier/lighter (mass), bigger/smaller (size), further/closer (distance), sooner/later (time), etc. Your choice for measurement is important: make sure it is something that is as close and causally related to getting where you want with whatever behavior or skill you are trying to shape.

Once you have figured out the basics write them down somewhere. Figure out which subskills you want to work on, the best way to measure them, how often you will measure them. Then set goals. Where do you want to be in a week, month, year? Build a rough outline: I one time created a self-improvement program in Microsoft Excel that I stuck to for a full two years – with great success! On top of all your measurements, keep a diary and journal entry where you can let out the emotional side of your improving. Here you can discuss how you feel, what mental blocks may be holding you back, and your ideas for overcoming them.

Before I complete this segment, let me mention another great thing about numbers: they are very suggestive. Even if you never liked math, our minds love numbers. Numbers actually help to make our improvements feel more real. When we see that we can run an extra mile this week than we could the previous one – it is that much more satisfying. This knowledge can motivate us to go further, literally…to go that extra mile, that extra hour, that one less piece of cake, or one less cigarette. Numbers are a direct language to the subconscious mind, they have very simple implications (are you improving or not improving?). So the next time you are filling out your latest self-improvement log in your diary try to take out the yardstick and write down some numbers. Stay consistent, bring out your best scientist, and see the payoff.

“Ways to improve yourself” is an article written by Joylyn. Joylyn loves to write article. Its in her interest. That’s why she subscribed to ezineseeker.com because she wanted to improve her writing skills. When Joylyn writes this article “Ways to improve yourself” she reflects it abstractly to herself. To whether how she could really improve her whole self. They said that people can be viewed and recognized on what kind of individual are they when they produce crafts. I guess the outlook of this article is simply describing how Joylyn would really make a change to herself. It is mean. A fact that actually mean in order to be understood.
