Does Self Improvement Enrich Your Life?

As a personal development devotee I am most interested in self improvement and especially interested in personal growth. However, there came a stage in my life when I had to ask myself was self improvement helping me or hindering me.

Almost every goal I set back then centred on a need to fix myself in some way. I strongly believes (which I still do) that even material goals can manifest faster if inner changes are made first.

However, when setting personal goals that involve bettering yourself in some way start to get in the way of living your life I think that self improvement has over-stepped its boundaries!

I had to come to the realization that it was time to become a person who used self improvement as a tool rather than someone who was being driven by self improvement. You see I had become a self improvement junkie who, just like a drug addict, needed his next fix yet fixed nothing.

By constantly "working on myself" I was sending out the vibe that I wasn't OK the way I was. I was focused on all the things that were wrong in my life and missing those things that were right and the law of attraction made sure I got more of what I was focusing on!

When I took a step back and decided that I was fine the way I was and didn't need another "fix" of self improvement to make me better my life started working all on its own!

I became a person who got results from self improvement rather than just someone who was constantly looking for his next self improvement "fix"!

If you find that you have tried everything and nothing has worked perhaps this is the last piece of self improvement advice you need for now - stop trying!

Maybe it's time to allow yourself to be who you are and to stop trying to fix yourself - you aren't broken!!!!

Decide today that you are going to accept yourself as you are and embrace any changes that may come. Then set forth an intention about how you want your life to be and let it go. Then just live your life and watch what happens.
