Follow These Steps
1. Determine a small goal (or focus on just the first step of a multi-step project). Evaluate your life to identify areas that are unsatisfactory. What’s bugging you? Is someone holding you back? Are you holding yourself back? I believe that most everyone knows what they need to do in life. We simply get so stuck in daily living that we fail to take the time to analyze the possibilities for change.
2. Visualize what the outcome will look like or how it will feel. Use the SMART goals acronym if that makes sense to you (specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, time bounded). Write ideas down in an outline, create a vision board or make a project management plan with specific steps and deadlines to follow. Try to have fun with your brainstorming, after all this is your future. As you plan, though, get as concrete as possible.
3. If you’re stuck - get a self-improvement buddy. This is someone who shares your desire for self-improvement, has similar aspirations, or is already practicing a life of positive action. Find professional help is you just can’t seem to make progress. This may be a life coach, a therapist, or the clergy.
4. Then go for it! Put your energies into making yourself better, feeling happier, understanding yourself more, or just being your true self.
Read an inspirational book like Deepak Chopra’s, “What are you Hungry For?” (it’s not just a diet book) or Susan Jeffers’ “Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway” (awesome advice)

Consider the various parts of one’s life and identify where you feel change might be necessary: career, relationships, family, health, social, financial, education, contribution, and leisure.
Or consider the broad three parts of every person: body, mind and soul. Do you feel unbalanced in any one?
