Focus on Internal Improvements

I’ve been taking a Psychophysiology class in college which is basically about the templates that you have engrained into your very being and your reactions to them as you move throughout life. In other words, if you’ve been told that you were not good looking or that you were a loser during your younger years, then you grow up believing it. On the flip side, if you were told that you were the best looking guy in your high school, you engrained that into your psyche. Unfortunately, as you begin to age, you may not be the best looking guy anymore. The individual that had been told how good looking he was over and over again throughout their younger years now has this image of themselves as “the most attractive” and would have a hard time accepting that they’re no longer the best looking guy in their group anymore. These types of stimuli and labels that we (and others) attach to us when we are younger (ages 5 through young adulthood) affect us when we become adults and will keep affecting us until we decide to make a change. And that change has to be internal.

So, with all that being said, this now brings me to my main topic of this post which is internal self-improvement.

First off, let me say that I am totally against someone trying to change you from who you really are. If you like sports, then like sports. If you have brown hair and you like your hair color, then have brown hair. I am against someone trying to change or mold someone to what they want them to be.

Nothing irritates me more than a guy starting a romantic relationship with a girl to say, “You know, I really like blondes better. You should bleach you hair blonde.” Really? (I think this guy just won the douche bag of the year award.) On the flip side, women do this to men too whether they want them to look more like Brad Pitt or some other Hollywood heartthrob. Either way, this is wrong.

The only thing that you should really be concerned with is changing who you are on the inside. If you have addictions, let them go. If you have a bad attitude most of the day, strive to change it. If you look at the world with a “glass half empty” view, try changing your outlook to a more positive one. The changes that we should be making are internal, not external.

If you’re not happy with your external appearance and want to change it then that’s fine; but remember that the work has to be done from an internal level first.
