Perhaps stress is keeping you from feeling happy. When we have to deal with stress, it takes its toll on the body in a physical and mental sense. All of us need to have clear, relaxed thinking to enable us to plan and execute our life’s purpose, and this only happens when we let go of stressful thoughts. Find some spare time during the day to be by yourself and to clear out your mind by relaxing. This time to yourself can make you feel more peaceful.
Find people you can relate to. Self improvement is easier when your associates do not belittle your efforts and tempt you from your goals but instead share your drive for self-improvement.
A decision avoided is an opportunity missed when it comes to self improvement. Do not fear decisions that need to be made, even if you do not have all of the information that you need to be sure of the decision. Successful decisions evolve into good instincts. You will make the wrong decision sometimes. Use those mistakes as a chance to learn something new. When you make the wrong choices, you know what better choices to make in the future.

The breaks allow you a chance refresh yourself and work harder.
Always carry a way to write down thoughts you may have. Carry paper with you everywhere. Make detailed notes, and later, when you have the chance and are feeling creative, take your ideas further.
In order to enhance your own personal development, work on becoming a leader. Although there are many different definitions of leadership, the most common being “influence”. Reflect back on your leadership experiences. Are there any events that have had an impact in your life? How have those events changed you? What do you feel makes you a good team player? Thinking deeply about these issues can bring awareness of the level of your leadership and team member skills.
