How to make a difference for the betterment?
Do you honestly want to make a difference and see a betterment in your life? Do you wonder if you can really do it? The honest answer is that you CAN do it, by all means! However, if you really want to make a difference, the first thing you should do is to get rid of the too confusing plans and think even simpler. Here’s what you can do as a start.
Avoid comparing yourself with the others
The biggest mistake people do with the intention of making a difference is comparing (in the wrong way). Instead of comparing yourself with someone else, you should start to compare today’s you with yesterday’s you. Such approach might give you an opportunity to see if you have made a difference to yourself in a better way or not. It is really useful approach instead of trying to check if you are doing good compared to a stranger. In fact, self-comparison will surely give you a chance to identify the areas you need to make the difference. That is a good beginning isn’t it?
Do something fresh
Your routine can easily make you bored and stay unchanged of course. You need to break this routine if you expect any difference at all. So, choose to do something new whenever possible; you don’t need to do engage in something really big. Cook a new recipe, play a game of tennis with a new person, learn a new software etc.; it’s that simple! These simple tasks might gradually bring some change to your life and start pumping some dynamism.
Practice to listen
You should be more of a listener than a talker if you want to make a difference. It is true that we live in a fast-paced world and yet we have to listen to the others to achieve the difference you expect. You can consider asking the questions from the others and be prepared to listen to their answers instead of thinking of the next question you are about to ask. This approach will make you different from the others and others will start to hang around you more freely.
Pay attention to what you usually think
What you think gives an impression of what you really feel. You need to observe your thoughts very carefully and analyze your feelings; you must know that your feelings drive your actions. So, be sure to rethink every thought comes to your mind and find out the cause of that thought. If you find the cause, it is easier to find a way to change it (if necessary). This is a very effective and compulsory method to build self-awareness.
Besides, it is really important that you learn to be happy with what you have at the moment. This doesn’t mean that you have to abandon your goals; it is about being happy about the current situation and trying to be happier tomorrow. Interestingly, happy thoughts drag more happiness towards you and ensure to develop a sustainable difference within.
