Let us take a look at the eagle and then, appropriate lessons from here to self-improvement for a job seeker.
It is no news that the eagle is one of the largest and most powerful birds in the world. Eagles are characterized as fierce and courageous hunters. Eagles are the king of the birds.

This enables them to soar above the skies and defeat the winds.
Every job seeker should hereby understand that life is a journey, life is a struggle and only the courageous will walk through the struggles of life and scale through the winds of adversity. How could this be? The answer is self-improvement. Choose to live the life of an eagle and achieve greatness in your career.
Here are some practical ways to improve yourself:
• SELF KNOWLEDGE
Knowing yourself is the first step towards self-improvement. Take time to study your temperament because your temperament speaks volume about you. Tell me how you want to make yourself better if you don't even know your temperament. Take a look at this example: my name is Melissa, I am melancholy and phlegmatic. I have studied my temperament over the years to know why I behave/act the way I do. Recently, I started attending a therapeutic class to work on my excesses and to make myself better. My aim is to defeat anger, worry, lateness and timidity in three months.
Until you know yourself, you cannot know the areas you need to work on to become a better you.
• BE YOURSELF
You can neither improve nor excel when you are trying to imitate any other person. You will observe that Nigerian musicians who imitate other musicians do not stand the test of time while those who maintain their uniqueness become legends. Be yourself, strive to be a better person in order to have merit in your career journey.
• FORGET THE PAST
When you cling to the past, you fail to become better than before. Do not allow the past to define you but embrace the present and use experience from the past to improve yourself.
• BE OPTIMISTIC
As a job seeker, you should expect good things all the time. Do not take opportunities for granted, endeavor to have the right mind towards your career success.
• DISCOVER YOUR TALENT
Every job seeker should discover what he/she finds pleasure in doing. This will make you dauntless in your career journey.
Moreover, self-improvement guarantees success in your career journey. It is important for a job seeker to apply the practical steps to become a better person.
