We have all experienced failure at some point in our life. However, failure does not mean to give up, but to press on until success is accomplished.

Many famous people in history had some form of failure before they became successful. Take for eg. Abraham Lincoln. He was twice an unsuccessful candidate for election to the US. Senate, but later became the sixteenth President of the United States.

How then can we use self improvement to become successful? Here are some suggestions:

1. Accept the fact that you are not a failure. When you’ve reached a roadblock on your journey to your dreams, don’t give up, just take a detour. It may take a little bit longer than you anticipated, but maybe there was a reason for that. Nothing happens before its time.

2. Encourage others. When you help others to achieve their dreams, it opens doors and opportunities for you to achieve yours. This also helps to motivate you to accomplishing your own goals.

3. Take one day at a time. Self improvement will not happen overnight. Focus on one aspect of your life that needs improving and work on that first. When you are successful, move on to the other, until you are satisfied with your life and accomplishments. Self improvement is a life long journey.

4. Respect other people’s opinions and decisions. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. They also have a right to decide what is best for them. Trying to convince someone to accept your point of view, when clearly they don’t, could lead to lack of self confidence and disappointment on your part. A part of self improvement is recognising that we are all different and think differently. We are all unique individuals. Learning to respect others will carry us a long way to achieving our own success.

Life is all about learning. Improving ourselves means accepting drawbacks and working through challenges in order to become as successful as we can be.
