I am going to lay down 7 simple steps for your self improvement plan. Whether you implement the self improvement steps I give you is your decision alone.
Self Improvement Tip 1
Unless you're not a morning person this self improvement tip will drastically change the quality of your day towards the positive.
Setting you in a good mood to face the days challenges and adversities.
Get Up Early!
To be able to accomplish this and still avoid losing any any precious sleep. You can go to bed just a half hour earlier since to start with you only need to get up a half hour earlier than you usually do.
To aid this purpose you should definitely use an alarm clock with persistent beeping.
You may be wondering by now just what it is that you're supposed to do in this extra half hour when you would normally be dozing peacefully in bed and how this has anything to do with self improvement.
For different people the answer can vary slightly. To start with you need to fully awaken yourself and get rid of early morning sluggishness.
To suit this purpose you can take a cold or slightly cool shower. Or you might try doing stretches combined with deep breathing.
You might skip the shower if just splashing cold water on your face is sufficient to wake you. Use whatever works for you.
After you're completely alert step outside of your house, apartment, etc... And if it's early enough and you have a clear view, watch the sunrise.
This simple but immensely satisfying act will lift your spirits and help with self improvement. If you're unable to do this, take a brisk walk, jog or run depending upon what you prefer and what you're physically capable of.
When you've been out for 20 minutes you can head inside and commence with whatever morning ritual you normally have.
Self Improvement Tip 2
To start your day out on the right foot and stay in keeping with your self improvement plan this is practically a necessity. You need the energy this will provide you with to accomplish your daily tasks.
If you are overly pressed for time you might try cereal and milk or a few granola bars, even a few pieces of fresh fruit would do.
Any of these are better alternatives than skipping breakfast.
This is also a good suggestion for those watching their weight, because if you skip breakfast you're more likely to binge later in the day. And you certainly won't be helping your self improvement by gaining unwanted weight.

Knowledge Or Action
It's been said that knowledge is power. While that's true to an extent, it isn't the whole truth. Knowledge without action is almost useless. It doesn't help to be a genius if you never do anything with the knowledge. I tend to think of knowledge as ammunition and action as a gun. (It's a typical guy thought, I know but it works for me.) Think about it. If you have bullets and no gun, they're pretty much useless. If you have a gun and no bullets, the best you can do is throw (action) the gun at the target. Not as useless as the bullets (knowledge) since action without knowledge is more productive than knowledge without action
