Некоторые люди знают, что такое стремление к совершенству, и живут этим.
In self-improvement, a person focuses not on internal sensations (harmoniously to me or not), but on the demands of life: do I cope with the challenges of life? Am I worthy? Anyone who is interested in self-improvement sees the tops of development and wants to achieve them. Self-improvement is working with the vertical of human life.
You can improve yourself in different directions. The main types (directions) are moral, intellectual, physical, aesthetic and professional self-improvement. Separately, one can single out personal self-improvement, which usually includes the education of oneself, the development of necessary personal skills, and sometimes the development of will, thinking and other mental functions.
Self-improvement is a work for which no one will pay you, at least - not immediately. And then - why? Why strain yourself, doing self-improvement?
If you suddenly do not like your shadow - some stooped, curved, - then, to straighten it, you straighten yourself. Naturally. Similarly, if you do not quite like your life, the only way to correct it is to correct yourself. Changing ourselves - changing lives. Your life is a reflection of your personality, and you must start with yourself.
However, dissatisfaction with oneself is not the only reason for the desire for self-improvement. In addition to problems, there are opportunities in life, and there are people who consider it right to use all the best opportunities that life gives us. If you live well, but want excellent, then you are good, but you have to become - excellent! Forward to self-improvement!
