How to Become a Better Person


This article provides some simple steps to become a better person. I initially got the idea to write this article while I was thinking of ways to become a better teacher.

  • Be teachable! Nobody knows everything. Be willing to learn new ways to do things. Close your ego and open your mind to new ideas.

  • Evaluate your behavior. When something doesn't work as expected, evaluate your actions. Nobody doubts your best intentions. It is not a crime to make mistakes. It is a crime to not learn from your mistakes and to repeat them.

  • Emulate the behavior of those who are successful. Are you bypassed promotions in work? Emulate the behavior of those that receive those promotions. Do you respect somebody in your community? Write down the qualities that you respect and incorporate them into your behavior.

  • Ask for help. Find a mentor. If you want to become a great sales person, talk to as many sales people as you can. Learn from them. Learn what to do and most importantly, what not to do. Ask people in work for help. If you are sincere, people will help you.

  • Ask how to be successful. I teach for private organizations and schools. Whenever I interview, I ask the interviewer what makes a successful teacher? They give me answers that help me learn.

  • Read. Successful people read! Read books that are not part of your discipline. For example, I read about successful coaches to become a better teacher. Want to be a great sales person? Read about people that inspire others.

  • Be humble. If you have to tell people how great you are, you're not great. People know when you do great things; you don't have to tell them.

  • Never forget the bad times. We all have our ups and downs. Don't let success go to your head. It may take a lifetime to become successful but only a moment to become a failure.

  • Define your own meaning of success. Success does not necessarily equate to earning a million dollars. Success can be living the lifestyle you choose, raising a family, making a living doing what you love, et cetera.
