Getting Better

There is always room for self-improvement.

There is always room for self-improvement.

There’s more to self-improvement than meets the eye and it’s exciting to know that you can benefit from it too.

Do you struggle sometimes, feeling like you aren’t as capable as you could be? If so, then good news. Everyone has the capacity not only to do their best but also become better at what we do.

Both the plasticity of the brain and the power of your mind are incredible. In practical terms this means we can all hone our mental awareness with a bit of consistent effort, becoming better thinkers and feeling more the process.

As a teacher, writer, and rehab counselor that inspires me. Why? Because it reaffirms my long held belief that if you are conscious you are capable. Better still, you can improve what you’ve got and find greater satisfaction in your achievements.

You  know, the idea that we are slightly incapable and a bit empty-headed often starts right back in childhood. Being told how stupid you are by some frustrated adult, your trusting child mind took it all on board and believed at least part of it. At least, that’s the experience of a great many people who secretly hold doubts about their ability.

From then on, struggling to fight this baseline belief, it’s easier to dumb ourselves down, proving that we really are as incapable as we were originally told.

If that has ben your experience or of someone close to you, I can tell you: we were made far more capable and the rigors of life barely scratch the surface of our abilities. Though we can be conditioned into thinking we are “just managing” and we haven’t got much more inside to do better., that’s really not true.

I love seeing kids light up to possibilities and accept their potential is exponential. Instead of a light bulb flashing above their head. it’s more like fireworks. Come to think of it, that same kind of realization is just as exciting when you see it in adults too (especially as it takes a lot more discovering to bring it out).

I happen to be one of those people who believe every child is born a genius. It’s only what happens afterwards that turns people’s possibilities down. But thanks to our lifelong ability to keep learning, you and I can develop new skills and fresh ways of thinking that the past cannot control.

So, go ahead and dream of being brighter and more capable. Imagine the possibilities of doing more, and understanding what might seem impenetrable now. For the reality is, you can get better with interest, practice, and discipline.  Because, by these means even the most ordinary people can do extraordinary things and you are clearly much more than that..
