For us to live a more harmonious life we must make self-improvements, but that starts with self-awareness. When we become self-aware, we become knowledgeable in some or all parts of our lives.
We must continue to work on ourselves, for self-improvement leads to positive, emotional and mental health. We must always be truthful about ourselves because that helps transform our habits.
We tend to be a little conservative with the truth around progress. For example, those who try to lose weight may continue to convince themselves and others that they’re eating healthy, but the reality is their eating habits haven’t changed at all.
The standard phrase such as, ‘I’ve been trying really hard recently,’ doesn’t quantify or back our claims that we have been working hard or achieving what we set out to achieve.
But being conservative with the truth will impact our goal for developing greater self-awareness and self-improvement. Self-good statements can’t help us develop self-improvement, our actions do.
They simply allow us to continue to lie to ourselves about progress.
