Three Tips for Self-Improvement

Self-improvement is a big theme during the college years. A lot of people consider college is dong two things. The first is learning what you want to do as a career and the second is finding and improving yourself. But in college, while you’re learning a bunch of new things and doing 112 other things, it can be pretty hard to improve yourself. Here are three tips to help you get started.


  1. 1. Don't Waste Time 

    This is seemingly an easy one but a really hard one for me to follow and remember. Wasting time can mean a lot of things for different people and for me it simply means to make the most of every moment. Don’t waste time worrying about things you won't be worried about five years from now or even a year from now. Focus on devoting all the time and energy you have to things that will make you happy and enhance your own success.

  2. 2. Get Out of Your Comfort Zone

    I know this is a scary one and I think the hardest to actually do. The comfort zone is a comfort zone for a reason and people would like to stay there generally speaking. But examine yourself and ask why you’re afraid to leave your bubble. If you’re not ready to completely leave your bubble yet, trying poking a little hole in it and seeing what happens. It’ll be scary but it can also be really rewarding too.

  3. 3. Avoid Negative People

    Ah, this is one that comes up a lot. Avoid negative people. What does that mean, exactly? For me, it means to avoid people that actively put me in a bad mood or make me feel bad about myself. Negative people can bring the mood of the people around them down which can negatively impact the mood people. 

Self-Improvement is a lifelong journey and one that never truly stops. You should always be trying to learn more, be better and become the best version of yourself that you can. These were just tips to help you get started and see how great you could truly be. Keep improving yourself, reader.
