What is Self-Improvement ? – Part 1

Sep 20, 2021

Self-Improvement
Are you happy with where you are? Is improvement only for those around you but not for you?
This week the Radio Islam presenters have taken up the “Be Better Challenge,” because let`s face it, there is always room for improvement. You might be doing perfectly well in your career, but something in your family life is lacking, or you might be the perfect husband/wife and an excellent father/mother, but your diet is terrible and your health is on a downward spiral. Or perhaps everything in your personal, social and financial life is above par but your spirituality is far from where it should be. This list can become very lengthy but deep down and honestly, we all can improve and Be Better!

But what does it mean to Be Better or to Self-improve?
Better does not necessarily mean that you need to change the world. Better does not mean running for office or seeking for a government position. Better does not mean inventing a life-changing surgery that may change the medical industry. It doesn’t even mean building a huge conglomerate, let alone a company. It certainly doesn’t mean that you have to become wealthy overnight. In fact being better has nothing to do with your wealth or your fame, your house or your car, your bank balance or your phone.

Better, simply just means being in love — in love with life, in love with living. Better means waking up every day, loving ourselves and loving how living gives us the opportunity to enjoy and grow. Better means seeing yourself as valuable and capable of making a difference in this world, no matter how big or how small.

Better means living with integrity, conviction, kindness and faith. It means seeing and upholding what is fair and just. It means loving yourself so that you can love others more. It means being kind to people and respecting what they believe in even if you don’t necessarily agree with them.

Better means that we just don’t thrive with people in our community, but we mingle and interact. We build relationships — relationships that strengthen the main core of our existence which is to love. We help each other achieve and grow, learn and love. We help them move on from past hurt, heartaches, hang-ups, depression, bullying and other negativity that they may have experienced. We help them achieve their fullest potential, by actively helping them out or by just being there as a friend.

Better means realizing that minute things that we can do will impact society in a big way if we constantly do it. We need to give more importance to living intentionally. If ever something tragic happens (may Allah save all of us), we need to be able to say that we have lived and loved. We have done everything that we could have done with this precious life. We have been good people and we lived a good life.
