Conciously Alter Your Personality

28 January 2010

I don’t know how many people are aware of this, but any individual is capable of altering their personality to become whatever they want through willpower alone. If you don’t like something about yourself, if you want to improve yourself, you can. And you can do it on your own, and quickly. If you think you are too shy, if you struggle with your image or self respect, if you’re in a rut, or even if you are bored more than you want, you have the power to simply go outside and fix it. You might say “well, that’s too easy to work” but I’ve done it! I used to be shy, I used to not have a lot of friends and I had no direction in life. I felt in a rut, I was constantly bored.

I don’t mean you can go out and have fun for a day, or feel good about yourself for a week. I mean change the very fiber of who you are, into whatever you want to be. I wish I could put my feelings into words so everyone can understand how easy it is. Twelve months ago I skipped class almost daily, I wore cutoff pajamas everywhere I went, I felt awkward talking to people but I liked to be goofy. I had few friends and was self conscious.

Four months ago I listened to a program on tape about how to improve yourself. It made me think about who I wanted to be, not tomorrow or a week ahead, but five, ten, twenty years. I wrote down who I wanted to be in ten years. I wrote down every aspect I could think of, trying to picture me being the most incredible person in the world. Fully satisfied, I could have filed that away and never thought of it again. Fortunately, I instead wondered why I had to wait ten years to get to be that person. I want to be amazing now. It started a chain reaction of self improvement guides, self reflection, even writing down my thoughts and posting them on the internet. I will forever owe my mom for making me listen to that first tape.. If I hadn’t, who knows what I would be like today.

Just a few months later, I am the happiest I have ever been in my entire life. I dress better and better every day, dockers&dress shirts, belt and nice shoes. I look in the mirror every morning and just smile at how far I’ve come in such little time. I have direction in my life, and if you do too you know how satisfying that is. I’ve got tons of really good friends, I have hobbies during spare time and I don’t veg on video games all weekend. I’m not shy. For those of you who are shy, let me tell you- learning to talk to people well and being comfortable at it is one of the coolest things ever. Being comfortable with myself and who I am is the greatest thing in the world, and it’s all because of changes I’ve consciously made for myself. I didn’t just change how I act, I changed how I felt. I didn’t just put on a face and nice clothes and pretend, I changed who I was. . I had relatives not recognize me at Thanksgiving, I’m so different.

When someone tells you that ‘anything is possible,’ it really is. Never did I think I could manipulate the way my personality developed, but here I am- a thousand ways different from myself a year ago, and a thousand times happier because of it.
