3 tips to boost your confidence - TED-Ed

How to Enrich Yourself Within a Year

Three Parts:

Before you read this article, keep in mind that this topic educates you on how to create a general but unique goal for a year. What you do after the twelve months depends on how much dedication you put into the activities during the allotted time you have set up for yourself and from there you can assess whether you want to continue using these methods after the year is up to see you you have grown in your enrichment process. The parts to this article are specific steps that facilitate the processes on how to effectively help you to become a more enriched individual. However, this is not a one-size-fits-all theory because it specifically relates to the individual who desires to enrich his or her own unique life and experiences. You might have a different self-enrichment goal from another person reading this article.


Planning Your Year of Enrichment

  1. Decide what self-enrichment means for you.Although the word "rich" is found within this enrichment, making money or being wealthy aren't the ways to enrich yourself considered in this article. Instead, it focuses in making your internal and inter-relational life richer. For example, perhaps you'd like to perfect a talent, learn a new skill, network more widely, visit a place that has special meaning to you, improve your sense of belonging in the world or become more spiritual. Whatever it is, define it before you begin your enrichment journey.
  2. Write in a journal or a diary each day.Use the Cornell note-taking method (see 'citations' section below if you are not familiar with Cornell note-taking). When writing in the journal or diary, use the following to guide you:
    • Always record the date of your journal/diary entry.
    • Write about current events.
    • Write about your mood and feelings.
    • Write about your goals you want to pursue throughout the year.
    • Write about anything else that you personally want to write about.
    Consider buying a separate planner that contains a calendar to help keep you organized with your enrichment goals. Although this is optional, it can be useful to keep you focused.
  3. Go to the library.This is an opportunity to explore new interests and to find out things you're not yet aware of.
    • Pick two books: one that interests you and one that does not interest you.
    • Read one book for one month, write about it in your journal/diary.  State your opinion on the book and anything else you want to write about pertaining to the book.
    • During the next month, read the second book and write about it in your journal/diary.
    • You could pick a fiction and non-fiction book (e.g. the fiction book could be a mystery genre or science fiction and the non-fiction book could be a history book or a biography on a person whom you might want to exemplify some day).

Suggestions for Enrichment Activities

  1. Try one new physical activity for two months.Learn as much as you can about the activity or sport and practice it to keep your body healthy. In your free time, write about it in your journal/diary.
  2. Learn a new language.Research a language that you might find interesting and study it for two months.  Write about it in your journal/diary and record your voice on your cell phone or other recording device to practice.  If you are really interested in this phase, try signing up for a class in the second month that will further your educational enrichment on the language and use your journal/diary to write about the language.
  3. Improve your social skills.Communicate with your family members, old friends and new acquaintances. Cut off toxic relationships that poison or hinder your self-enrichment. Write about your relationships with people in your journal/diary.
  4. Brush up on old or long-forgotten skills or activities.Was there some type of skill that you embarked on when you were younger but abandoned as you grew older? Try picking it up again and practice it for two months to see if you remembered it and journal if you have improved this particular activity or skill after the month is over.

Finding Inspiration for Your Free Time

  1. Meditate on inspirational quotes or verses or sacred text daily for a month.  Feel free to write about it in your journal/diary.
  2. Watch inspirational video clips on YouTube on various inspirational topics that you might find to be of interest.Here are a few suggestions:
    • Greg Laurie - Spirituality (Christianity)
    • Deepak Chopra - Neuroscience[]/Inspiration
    • Bill Dyer - Spirituality (general)
    • Caroline Leaf - Christian neuroscience[]
    • Elliot Hulse - Inspiration/motivation
    • Carol Tuttle - Chakra balancing/eastern philosophy
    • Brad Yates - EFT tapping.

    How can I be a humble person?

    Community Answer
    Do not let another person's lack of success bring your ego out. When you acquire success, do not flaunt it in the faces of others. For example, if you have a brand new car or watch, do not tell everyone how expensive it was or how luxurious it is just because it makes you feel good or better than the next person. Being quiet is a key factor in being humble. Treat everyone with the same dignity and respect, no matter what level of success they have.

  • Create a reward system for yourself: Give yourself 10 points for each activity that you want to pursue throughout the year, but designate each activity per month to help you stay organized. Develop a score that you want to achieve at the end of the month and if you have met it, reward yourself with something that relaxes you (e.g. a nice bath, ice cream, etc.).


  • Make sure your point system is measurable and achievable. You are most likely going to have to use a trial and error method for how many total points you want to earn at the end of each month.
