“Don’t tell people your goals”

Is this a good idea?

Or do I need people to hold me accountable?

I suspect the answer is, “A little from column A, and a little from column B.”

Are there positive people in your life who will help and support you? Tell them.

The crabs can stay in the dark. They’ll find out what your goals were when you accomplish them.

Self-improvement is an act of love

Hugging the World

As you work on yourself, some people will criticize you. They’ll say things like, “self improvement is selfish.”

These people are crabs. Don’t listen to them.

You were given talents for a reason.

Self improvement will make your life better.

Once you’ve improved yourself, you’ll be in a better position to improve the world around you.

There’s a YouTuber called Mr. Beast. My boys love him. A lot of his videos are dumb, but they’re popular and make him a lot of money. Does a lot of that money go to dumb things? Sure. But he’s also very generous.

In one video he bought a bunch of cars and opened a car dealership. He sold the cars to people in need for ridiculously low prices. In one case he gave someone money and a car. He also started #TeamTrees with YouTuber Mark Rober and raised money to plant 20,000,000 trees.

I still think a lot of his videos are dumb. So what? He’s a great example of what good people can do when they have money.

Money’s not the only way to help people, though.

Improve your spirituality, and lift the people around you that way.

Become a personal trainer or a dietician and help people be healthier.

Become a therapist and help people with emotional issues.

Join a club like Toastmasters and work on your public speaking skills.

Start a blog.

Start a YouTube channel.

Make cool things and sell them online. Or share them for free, if you want.

There are so many ways to improve yourself. The first step is to look for something that interests you and work at getting better at it.

The world will be better off.

And so will you.
