We have the power to be better if we want to.
Even though I don't do New Year's resolutions, every year I set up myself the objective of trying to be a better person. In January, I usually reflect on the year before and I try to learn from the mistakes I made, and I always look for the lessons because the lessons are always there.
I think learning from our mistakes is pivotal if we'd like to become better as a person.
This feeling or desire of wanting to be a better person is getting stronger and bigger as I am getting older. I guess is part of trying to age gracefully both psychologically and spiritually. And I have to say, it is a great feeling.
This year, I also integrated to my goal of becoming better, to learn more, to read more and to be more curious about knowing new things, exploring new things. As part of all this, I have decided to improve my spoken English. I would like to be able to have a better pronunciation in English. I know I have a strong accent - which is OK, but my elocution is something I have started to work on.
I have set up some exercises for this purpose. The below clip shows how my practice is helping me. I know I have a very long and endless road to travel, however, I am enjoying so much the start of this journey.
I believe we can achieve everything we want in life. I believe we can become better at whatever we would like to be better at. The first step is wanting it, once that desire is in us, we do have the power in our hands to do everything we can to achieve our goals - which is very rewarding.
We have the power to be better if we want to!
I am on that journey and I am happy to share it with you and the rest of the world. Thank you for allowing me to do so.
