"What Really Makes You Tick?" 10 questions you should ask to
yourself: a preparation to self-improvement
Be all you can be, but it's not always in the Army. I often see
myself as somewhat contented with my life the way things are, but of
course it's hard to think of anything else when where are real
issues to be discussed.
Still I aspire for something deeper and more meaningful.
So we're all pelted with problems. Honestly it shouldn't even bother
or even hinder us to becoming all we ought to be. Aspirations as
kids should continue to live within us, even though it would be
short-lived or as long as we could hold on to the dream. They say
you can't teach an old dog new tricksOĢˆ or can they?
1. What do I really want?
The question of the ages. So many things you want to do with your
life and so little time to even go about during the day.
Find something that you are good at can help realize that small step
towards improvement. Diligence is the key to know that it is worth
2. Should I really change?
Today's generation has taken another level of redefining 'self', or
at least that's what the kids are saying. Having an army of teenage
nieces and nephews has taught me that there are far worse things
that they could have had than acne or maybe even promiscuity. So how
does that fit into your lifestyle?
If history has taught us one thing, it's the life that we have gone
through. Try to see if partying Seventies style wouldn't appeal to
the younger generation, but dancing is part of partying. Watch them
applaud after showing them how to really dance than break their
bones in break-dancing.
3. What's the bright side in all of this?
With so much is happening around us there seem to be no room for
even considering that light at the end of the tunnel. We can still
see it as something positive without undergoing so much scrutiny.
And if it's a train at the end of the tunnel, take it for a ride and
see what makes the world go round!
4. Am I comfortable with what I'm doing?
There's always the easy way and the right way when it comes to
deciding what goes with which shoes, or purse, shirt and whatnot. It
doesn't take a genius to see yourself as someone unique, or else
we'll all be equally the same in everything we do. Variety brings in
very interesting and exciting questions to be experimented.
5. Have I done enough for myself?
Have you, or is there something more you want to do? Discontentment
in every aspect can be dangerous in large doses, but in small
amounts you'll be able to see and do stuff you could never imagine
6. Am I happy at where I am today?
It's an unfair question so let it be an answer! You love being a
good and loving mom or dad to your kids, then take it up a notch!
Your kids will love you forever. The same goes with everyday life!
7. Am I appealing to the opposite sex?
So maybe I don't have an answer to that, but that doesn't mean I
can't try it, though. Whether you shape-up, change the way you wear
your clothes or hair, or even your attitude towards people, you
should always remember it will always be for your own benefit.
8. How much could I have?
I suppose in this case there is no such things on having things too
much or too little, but it's more on how badly you really need it.
I'd like to have lots of money, no denying that, but the question is
that how much are you willing to work for it?
9. What motivates me?
What motivates you? It's an answer you have to find out for
yourself. There are so many things that can make everyone happy, but
to choose one of the may be the hardest part. It's not like you
can't have one serving of your favorite food in a buffet and that's
it. Just try it piece by piece.
10. What Really Makes You Tick?
So? What really makes you tick? You can be just about anything you
always wanted to be, but to realize that attaining something that
may seem very difficult is already giving up before you even start
that journey. Always remember, that self-improvement is not just
about the physical or philosophical change you have to undergo, but
it's something that you really want.
