If you want to improve yourself, the first step is to become aware of the weaknesses which may be holding you back and preventing your evolution. These might include your perfectionism, your tendency to hyperfocus on minutiae, your over intellectualization, and your comfort with a constant state of worry.
You sometimes struggle between your desire for social and professional success and your need for a stable, secure domestic life. You are deeply committed to both ideas and have difficulty reconciling their schedules and demands on you. Sometimes it feels as though you will never be able to find a balance. However, no job promotion will really satisfy you if you neglect your most intimate needs and desires. Although it sometimes seems easier to you to climb the rungs of the career ladder out there in the real world, if you merely sacrifice your domestic life, you are only fooling yourself. You should accept the fact that your domestic life is the true basis and foundation of your development. All your career endeavors and success will be more rewarding if they are supported by a safe, warm personal life.
Bryce Jamal Griggs has significant intellectual potential which may merely need to be managed better and oriented toward his environment. In the first part of his life, this mental energy may have some negative effects and drive him into self-destructive behavior. To overcome the feelings of failure they cause, he will have to make an effort to understand certain obsessions, which are unconscious and therefore all the more powerful and irresistible. A complete psychological metamorphosis may occur when he makes up his mind to accept and understand the matters he has rejected and repressed.
To trust yourself better and gain self-assurance, the first step is to learn to say no. Once you are capable of saying no to others, you can say yes to life. You must develop your awareness of all the good things in your life, as well as all the changes you hope to make in order to enjoy life more. This is the foundation that will support you, the inexhaustible source and center of the transformation of your personality. Infantile anxieties which arose in childhood when you were helpless may be obstacles to your evolution. Sometimes they actually prevent you from daring to confront challenges you would be altogether capable of assuming now! One of the reasons you yield to these childhood fears so readily is because they procure a feeling so familiar to you that, although it is negative, it is a reassuring part of your identity. However, the more often you reinforce this complex by yielding to that feeling, the more unaware you become of your true emotional state. The irrational childhood fears have also reinforced your pessimistic tendencies. It is difficult for you to believe in the sunny side of life because of the pernicious little voice inside you that claims you don’t really deserve all this goodness. This side of you could undermine your vitality and force you to compensate or flee from reality. In doing so, you limit your power to bring about a positive change in yourself or your life. It's a vicious cycle, and to free yourself, the first step is to free yourself from the fears which prevent you from taking full advantage of life. You can succeed if you arrange a relaxed, positive environment for yourself, establish sincere relations with one or two special people, and, if possible, finds a setting – perhaps a yoga class – in which you can practice relaxation exercises.
