Improve yourself by learning new useful skills and knowledge, learning from smart humans, and learning as many useful truths or facts as you can.

Improve your relationships with others by selecting honest, sincere, dependable, trustworthy, and competent humans to be your friends and role models.

Improve your job or career by getting better at it or planning to switch to a better one.

Improve your attitude by considering each failure a learning experience, considering and savoring each success no matter how small as just one in a series of lifelong successes, and nurturing selfmotivation and selfcontrol with ongoing optimism on a daily basis if possible.

If married then improve your marriage by listening carefully, mutually caring what each other is thinking and doing, trying to avoid arguments and angry confrontations with calm discussions instead, and trying to raise educated, independent, socially competent offspring.

If you improve any or all of the above five things then you will be a winner in the game of life more than once and have more successes and happiness than most.

Not all of us desire to improve ourselves. We may have a good job, good close friends, a nice family, and interesting pastimes which make our lives seem happy and fulfilling and relatively secure.

For every successful happy human there are probably 9 who WISH that they had a better or more secure job, who would like a quality friendship, who would like to have a nice family someday, and who would like to participate in interesting pastimes if only they had the money.

Having a “normal” acceptable social lifestyle requires investing much time, energy, effort, and money on a daily basis and frankly most of us are trapped in our old habitual ways and are always short on cash so it seems to us that progress in our lives is almost impossible to achieve.

Most of our daily lives are filled with activity just trying to survive another day and few of us are not selfmotivated enough and know how to set aside the necessary time and money for improving ourselves and improving our surroundings.

With the internet, living life can be very cheap and entertaining without having to participate in the “rat” race of struggling to survive in a technological changing world which is creating fear, dissatisfaction, depression, and financial instability in many common humans.

Make enough money in a poor paying job or get on welfare and surf the world on the internet getting all the entertainment and marginal friends that you have time for! If you are basically a lazy unmotivated human, and don’t mind remaining single, then a computer lifestyle, eating healthy food, and exercising moderately is not a horrifying way to spend a lifetime!

For those of you who want more out of life than a computer for a spouse read my evergreen truth book HOW TO IMPROVE YOURSELF: HOW TO GET WHAT YOU WANT; HOW TO SAVE TIME AND MONEY and start on the path to a responsible lifestyle. With enough selfmotivation, time, ability, and effort you can get the things in life which you consider important enough to strive for as goals.

It will hopefully make your life more happy and fulfilled and not as boring.

Your impulsive unconscious self frequently overrules your conscious future projection of self:

You may consciously know that you have to study to get a good grade tomorrow but you stay up later than usual watching a good movie first before starting to study. You know that you should eat healthier but if presented with chocolate or a favorite sugary treat then you will probably eat it without a second thought. Immediate impulsive actions which are bad habits frequently overrule any good habits which you are consciously planning to switch to in the future. Procrastination is also impulsive bad habits which most of us constantly struggle with and delay good conscious behavior.

Many neophyte bloggers without a previous history of disciplined writing start off with a handful of articles and that is as far as most of them get. All their great blogging plans fail and they revert back to their impulsive selves.


A bad habit can take as long as 10 weeks of conscious effort to stop:

A bad habit is an addiction which your body prefers because it is the most efficient way to deal with life which is in automatic mode. It can take as long as three months of conscious effort to replace an inactive lifestyle with an exercise routine each day or every other day. So many humans have tried joining a gym or a health club filled with initial ambition and good thoughts and much before the three months are up have reverted back to their inactive former selves and don’t attend.

A body with automatic motions and/or inactivity tends to stay in old automatic motions and/or inactivities.


Willpower frequently is a limited resource:

It has been scientifically shown that willpower decreases with each application. This basically says that staying motivated for repetitive tasks becomes more difficult the more of the tasks that we do.  Willing your body to do something is forcing it to do something which is something your body does not like to prolong. Forcing or willing yourself to do a new behavior on your own is more difficult than having a personal trainer or coach motivating you to do a new behavior.

Other humans who motivate and other humans who participate in behavior modification with you can produce better results than you trying to modify your behavior on your own without external motivators.


Selfindulgence rather than selfimprovement is what your body subconsciously wants and it can even be failure that your mind wants:

If you have a bad habit of failing much your body and mind adjusts to the failure and effectively tries to stop trying to improve. You may make up excuses for your failure or start to accept it as a fact of life and not motivate yourself towards any future improvement.

Staying unemployed or not making advances toward the opposite sex because of a fear of failure or a subconscious feeling of imminent failure is what keeps many humans from improving themselves consciously.  Your body has a tendency to accept things as they are rather than fight for the way things ought to be in your idealized mind and body.



Your body is subconsciously addicted to and loves your bad habits and will hold on to them tenaciously. Only a fear of imminent death is sometimes what will motivate you long enough to quit very bad addictive habits such as smoking, drug use, alcohol, and severe obesity.

Changing bad habits on your own is almost infinitely more difficult than finding some continuing motivational support from another human or humans.
