Be willing to change: If you want to become a better person, you have to be willing to change. Change is the way in which we grow and progress as a person. When you keep an open mind and are willing to change, you are able to grow into the person you want to become.
Don’t make excuses: Instead of blaming other people for your mistakes or making excuses for them, if you are accountable then admit it. By understanding that it is your own fault, you are able to use your mistakes to learn which in turn will make you a better person.
Learn to control your anger: Anger can result in irrational decision making and can make you do or say things you might not mean. If you learn to control your anger, this can cause less upset in the long run. Ideas to help let go of anger are: writing down your feelings or meditating.
Don’t forget to listen: When was the last time you sat down and really listened to someone? People are so busy with their lifestyles that they often forget what is really important. By taking time to listen to people you can learn some of the biggest details of someone and develop connections that will last a lifetime and people really appreciate you listening too. Being a good listener and having empathy for others will make you a much better-rounded person.
Give as often as you receive: Giving will not only make other people happier, it will make you happier too. Giving also encourages cooperation, improves connections with other people and it is also contagious – spreading love around the world.
