How do you change your life and make yourself a better person? What do you want to change to make yourself a better person than the previous years?

At times, life throws all sorts of stuff at us to test our strength and resilience. If you are a small business owner, you will have to develop a better work-life balance management skills to help you get by.

The previous years had witnessed some great achievements and amazing breakthroughs. However, so many new start-ups have sprung up while some businesses have struggled to survive and subsequently shut their doors. Such is life!

“The best of all risks to take is the one to make yourself a better person. What’re you waiting for?”

Making yourself a better person

It is difficult to think that these pieces will fit perfectly into your situation because yours could be different. I am sure that we all have one or two things that may be improved or totally changed in the new year.

Therefore, it all depends on what you might consider changing in order to make yourself a better person.

Improve yourself and change your life towards a successful future

But the most important thing is to make sure that you are better off than the previous years. Generally, below are just a few things you should try to work on to make you a better person in the new year.

#1]. Be More Ambitious

Aim At Something, Set Yourself A Target

My mama used to say “always try to identify what you are good at and set yourself a target for an uninspired man is an aimless man.”


Maybe you were unable to identify what you are good at or discover the entrepreneurial potentials in you in a previous year. There is still a chance for another opportunity to have a closer look at yourself.

Many of us are scared of taking risks and challenging ideas. It’s not because it’s hard to accomplish, but because at times we just don’t have the courage to make it happen. You can change this by setting yourself a target in the new year.

The most absurd aspirations have sometimes led to extraordinary success. Therefore, it’s good to always aim at something and work towards achieving it.

#2]. Consider A Change

Change Or Improve Your Thinking And Lifestyle

If you are the type that likes to go out clubbing and partying at the weekends, you might want to take a look at what you can do to reduce the amount of money as well as the time you spend on such activities.

The point is to analyze the impact of your lifestyle on your general achievements. Are you okay with the ways you are living your life? If not, then you should take a look at where you can improve. You can also change or improve your thinking by changing your attitude and be more serious about what you are doing.

Some experts say you can’t be able to change your attitude without first recognizing the reason why you should. So, if you are the type that thinks thoughts such as “I am not good enough,” “I am not creative,” “I can’t do that,” “I can’t do this,” or any other negative statement, you are already telling your subconscious mind something to subscribe to. This is what you ought to change in 2013 if you want to succeed in life.

The little trick is to fill your mind with positive statements that can stimulate you to create the life you desire.

#3]. Get Inspired

Be Motivated, Improve Yourself Through Self Development

Self or personal development is an important factor in changing your life. Self-development can be improved through the help of friends as well as families. What is most important in self-development is the ability to see or discover what you need to improve in yourself.


This is only achievable when you take a closer look at yourself and evaluate your ways of doing things. It is also important to always be true to yourself and your fundamental values in order to get yourself motivated to be at your best. You can improve yourself in so many different ways; it could be your attitudes or actions that reflect your core values.

Think about what you want to be and what you want to do. This will give you a great place to start on your personal development. You can then look at what you have planned, and spend some time figuring out what it is that you can do to make it happen.

#4]. Be More Social

Improve Your Social ability

Always try to be more social and never try to do things on your own all the time. You can only pursue intentional change by starting a new hobby, joining an organization, learning a skill, initiating a project, or meeting new people.

Be open-minded and always give room for arguments with your friends and families. Share your joyful moments as well as sadness with others around you and allow them to offer their opinions or views. This might be all you need to get going in life. Try to attend seminars or conferences on issues that are most important to you.

Check your local directory to find out the type of professional groups or associations you can join to help improve yourself. Also, don’t forget to search for online communities with people that can inspire you.

#5]. Meet People, Make Friends

Associate Yourself With Your Likes

When I said “your likes”, I actually meant to say people that you consider a good influence. These are people that will contribute positively towards you realizing your dreams. Use social medial periodically and meet more and like-minded people that can inspire you.

Check yourself and the type of people you have been moving around with. You will definitely see those that do not fit into your personality amongst your so-called friends.

I remember I used to have lots of friends when I used to go out partying and clubbing every weekend. But the moments I stopped, I saw the number of my friends dramatically going down even on my Facebook and Twitter. People you move with don’t necessarily have to be saints.

But the bottom line is that you stand a better chance of improving yourself this year if you move around with like-minded people.
