With one month gone in 2019, you now have 11 months to achieve your new year goals. I know you might be thinking that’s still enough time to do something outstanding, you’re right. But you will never get anything done if you’re still wishing to get things done. Get up!
Below are a few tips that will get you started to become a better person in 2019:
1. Stay true to yourself.
The first step to being a better person is to stay true to yourself. Admit to yourself the good, the bad and the ugly and take it from there. Start improving yourself one step at a time.
2. Ask questions.
Always seek feedback. Sometimes, talking to people helps us gain a new perspective or learn something new. Listening to what people think of you or how they run their lives can shed a lot of light and alter our thoughts and actions.
3. Give more compliments.
Learn to appreciate yourself and others. A lot of times people want to feel appreciated and giving someone this small gift will make a difference in their day or maybe their life.
4. Help more people.
Give help to people without expecting anything in return. When you keep putting out good in this world, it will come back to you tenfold in unexpected ways.
5. Break up with your ego.
When you put your ego aside, you start seeing things differently, you become less angry and you start noticing positive changes in your life.
6. Create something (AKA give, give and give).
The value of creating work that can benefit other people is priceless, it can be anything small or big. A craft or a business, a blog or a book, a special meal or a whole restaurant. Always think of ways you can add value to your community.
7. Replace a bad habit.
Do you smoke, gossip, waste time or judge others? Quit a bad habit and replace it with a new good one. The best way to do this is by changing your environment. Travel to that new city(if you’re in Nigeria, you can come to Lagos).
8. Surprise someone.
Surprise your friends, or your partner or your kids. No matter how old we are, we are a sucker for surprises–good ones of course. And it doesn’t have to be a grand gesture, sometimes a simple text will do, or a card or a letter. Get creative!
9. Keep Learning.
As long as you stay wanting more, stay active, and stay looking for answers in your life without settling, you are on your way to being a better human being.
