How Improving Your Vocabulary can Improve Your Life

If you know me personally you will know that I love to read. One of the biggest advantages I have got from reading is that my vocabulary has improved tremendously. I have learnt many new words and have a greater command of my language. I am also able to communicate my ideas more effectively. Developing a great vocabulary is one of the most overlooked ways to improve our lives. Many people believe that learning new words is only useful for writers and speakers. The truth is that everyone can benefit from it, both personally and professionally. Let’s see how.

Begin With the Physical

Moving to a new country can be challenging in many ways. I’ve recently moved to the Philippines to pursue a masters degree. Three weeks have flown by and I am still trying to get a handle on everything – while keeping up with the pressure of my post-graduate course work. Needless to say, it’s taking longer than expected to settle in. However, it is a new beginning – a fresh start. There are a few changes I’d like to make in my life – some major and minor adjustments. Everything from implementing a new daily routine to starting an exercise program (which I have started), to becoming an early riser. Where to start? That is what this post is about.

33 Powerful Life Lessons From 33 years of Living Life (Part 1)

Last week (August 3rd) was my 33rd birthday. It’s hard to believe I’m 33 years old because I don’t feel my age. It doesn’t seem so long ago that I turned 30. I was living back home in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, and searching for direction in life after reaching that milestone. It’s been a great start to my 30’s. During my journey of life so far I’ve learned a whole lot. The past year has been hugely transformative, when I look back at my journey over the past 12 months a lot has changed and I feel incredibly blessed to be where I am right now. Sometimes it’s important to stop, take a moment, and reflect on the lessons life has taught us over the years. With that being said, to celebrate my 21st 33rd birthday I thought I’d compile, reflect, and share some of the most powerful personal life lessons I have learned which have had a tremendous impact on my life thus far. I’ve broken this up into 3 parts, where I’ll be sharing 11 life lessons in my next 3 posts.

I’ll be sharing some new ideas soon, please come back.
