Another year had gone by and another opportunity to start anew is what New Year signifies to most of us. A lot of people find that having a New Year’s resolution list is more of a cliché rather than an actual act of motivation. Most of us view the new year ahead as an opportunity to change our lives for the better. Though transforming your life doesn’t necessarily mean you had it bad this past year, it may mean extending your reach to new horizons or could even mean improving those areas you are already good at. Although the chance of a new beginning is always appealing and exciting, it is very constructive to work on the things that we’d like to change about our lives.
Improvement is something which people tend to seek and since change is a constant factor of life, improvement is the more positive aspect of change. Change starts with awareness and therefore, being aware of the things you want or need to change is the first step in affecting change in your situation. If you can’t determine what you need to change, it will be hard to start improving. This is the same concept of identifying the problem before you can come up with the solution – and most of the time, people are lost and can’t find or understand what needs to be changed.
Knowing yourself is the first step to have awareness of what needs to be improved in your life. If you don’t know what you want, what you need, your capabilities and even your weaknesses, it will be hard to understand what changes you need to make. Not all socially dictated “musts” is applicable to every individual. The best types and most effective types of improvements are those that are applicable to you as an individual and not what is socially ideal. If you do not have an intimate understanding of your own person, you may find chasing ideals based on external standards which is not guaranteed to give you the happiness you expect from it.
Spiritual retreats are one of the best ways to establish a good connection with your soul. Understanding and connecting with your inner self is the most crucial relationship you need to establish in order to be aware of the improvements and changes you need to have in your life. Without it, you may find yourself loosely following external standards of happiness that cannot guarantee to give you satisfaction since all of us have individual needs and different sources of happiness.
