Becoming better and growing every day toward a better version of yourself is no easy task.

It can sometimes be a real adventure, or a bloody battles, requiring you to confront your own worst fears, doubts and insecurities.

It also implies having a certain tenacity so as not to give up along the way.

To get you started though, here are eight but simple little actions/reflections you can take every day to grow into a better you.

Do what you love

Many say that happiness lies only in the mind, even if you do the worst job in the world, that every day is a plague, you must be able to seek happiness in the little things... I think we should take this statement with a pinch of salt.

I say, change what you can change, if your work environment does not suit you, act according to your objectives. Work at a call center if you have to, but work with your dreams in mind. If you manage to do what you are passionate about, you will progress naturally, without any effort.

Take action and stop thinking

I am someone who thinks a lot and too much. No matter how much I read or reflected on myself, it seems I was forever stuck in my own mind. I spent too much time-consuming information, learning, and researching that I became overwhelmed and made myself suffer from mental burnout which of course made me not take action…. What completely changed my well-being, and mental health and made me grow was when I decided to act. It's the only way to prove to your brain that you can do it. It's the only way to truly move forward.

Stop your excuses and ruminations and just do...Whatever it is you want to do

- Pick up your sneakers and go for that workout.

- Ask your boss for that increase

- Go approach that woman you like

Surround yourself with good people

Throw away the toxic relationships, too dependent or which are only unilateral, and always remember that a relationship is nourished by two. Choose your friends, those who can guide and support you, those who are role models for you, those who lift you up, and those who are sincere.

Practice self-discipline

This is the second component to becoming a better version of yourself. It's definitely one of the hardest skills to work on, but it's the one that makes successful people successful. If you manage to set a framework for yourself in what you do, you will strengthen your willpower. Thanks to this will, you can go as far as you want.

- Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today

- Push yourself to action

- Create a schedule to optimize your day

- Go to bed at a specific time in order to have a restful sleep

- Do things right now, don't let yourself get distracted by cat videos or Twitter

Be consistent

If you are consistent, you will reach your goals more easily. Play sports every day, revise your lessons every day, write a page of a book a day, work on a project on a weekly basis, etc. Rome was not built in a day. But they never stopped trying to build and improve it either.

Make mistakes

Accept the fact that you will make mistakes, and focus on what you can learn and improve on. Try, fail, try again.

Stop judging others

Stop criticism and hasty judgments. Unconsciously, you may spend a lot of time evaluating people and posing judgment. Often this judgment can be accompanied by resentment, envy, or even disgust. The day you make an effort to quit, you'll notice all the good it does for you.

- Less time wasted unnecessarily

- More energy saved; Especially mental and emotional energy

- Improved relationships with others

Focus on your own growth.

Be indulgent and proud

No matter how much progress you make, reward yourself. No matter what mistake you make, forgive yourself and move on. It's the only way to progress.

There you go, eight simple ways for a new and better you bit by bit, every day.
