I say all of the time that if you aren’t focusing on self-improvement, you are just sitting on the sidelines of life. So the question becomes, are you happy with your life?

Self Improvement Tips That Will Change Your Life part 1

Regardless of how you answered, you have the power to make your life better than it is today. The power to do so lies within each of us. All you need is a little nudge to get started. Because of this, I have compiled 20 self-improvement tips for you to start making a part of your everyday life.

Why 20 self-improvement tips and not 3 or 5? The reason is because everyone will start with what they feel most comfortable with first. If I were to only list 3 tips, some people might not be interested in trying any of them. But with 20 self-improvement tips, chances are you will find something to start with to improve your life. From there you can move on to another tip and another, and so on. So what are you waiting for? The first step to your best life begins now!

The first self-improvement tip is learning to love yourself. Unfortunately for many, this is easier said than done. You have to learn to accept who you are and that you are beautiful just the way you are. You’re not supposed to look like Brad Pitt or sing like Adele. You are supposed to simply be you.

All throughout our daily lives we have others put us down for who we are or what we believe in. They are against you; you need to be for you. If you are against you, there is no hope of living an amazing life. Why give others the power over you?

Tell yourself how special you are every day. It may be hard at first, but as time goes on, it will become easier. Learn to recognize what talents and qualities you have that are special and believe me, we are all special in our own way.


I make it a point to exercise a few times a week. When I do, I feel great. Working up a sweat and moving weights makes me feel good about myself and improves my mood. Not surprisingly, when I am busy and can’t make it to the gym, I find I am less motivated in general and my mood sours.

If you go to the gym and don’t feel anything, I encourage you to lift heavier weights. Many people “go light” either because they don’t think they can lift as much as they really can or because they fear they will get big and bulky.

I am here to tell you that you can lift more than you think and you won’t get big and bulky, unless it is in your genes or you are taking some artificial supplement. I’ve been lifting heavy weights for 15 years. I am nowhere near big and bulky.

When you lift heavy weights, your body exerts more effort and you release more hormones into your system. This is what makes you feel better and improves your mood. When you just go through the motions, you body doesn’t respond because it isn’t being worked.

With this said, if you are brand new to lifting weights, definitely go light to start so that you don’t injure yourself.
