Is it time to revamp your life? Reading posts in blogs on self-improvement is particularly worthwhile during the personal milestones of major life events, such as when your children leave the nest.

Do you ever feel like it’s time to level up?  You look around at what you’ve accomplished and realize that you aren’t exactly miserable, but you aren’t exactly overjoyed about your life. It’s like you are stuck in the Land of Okay. 

You can’t quite shake the idea that you do NOT belong here in the Land of Okay. You were designed for so much more and it is time for a breakthrough.

The challenge is that you cannot improve your life without investing in your personal growth and development. For your life to get better, you have to get better. 

Know Your Self-Improvement Goals

What if you could  pursue personal coaching with a personal life coach?  This kind of personal development training is available to you in the posts on some of these blogs on self-improvement.

Before you delve into some of these personal development tools it’s wise to get clear on your self-improvement goals.

One of the best self-development strategies for uncovering your personal goals is to describe yourself in three words. An example would be unfocused, confused, and active. Next, write down three words that describe the future self that you desire. An example would be physically fit, purposeful, and connected. 

In this one example, the writer was able to pinpoint that one of her self-development goals is in the area of physical fitness. It’s likely that her goals around a new purpose probably require the exploration of a new career or volunteer pursuit. A longing for greater connection points to a need to focus on new friendships or community involvement.
