Usually what brings your happy mood down is stress. When stress happens in our minds, it also has detrimental affects on our physical health. Getting rid of the stress that is in our minds is how we can think more clearly so that we can reach our goals. Set a time each day to relax, to clear your mind, and be alone. Taking some time to renew will help you to stay calm, and will improve your self-confidence.
Try and surround yourself with people who think like you do. When you have others around you who think and feel as you do, then you can avoid the negativity that can emerge from those who do not support your endeavors.
You will miss opportunities if you avoid making important decisions. Even if your knowledge is not what it could be, have the courage to make choices.

If you make the wrong choice today, you are almost certain to make a better choice the next time around.
Take every available opportunity to improve yourself. Even if you don’t have all the information you would like, don’t be scared to make decisions. Good instincts are the result of successful decisions. Even decisions that don’t turn out as you would have liked are valuable because you still learn from the experiences they give you. Wrong choices ensure that new choices will be better ones.
Use your time efficiently so you can get more done in a shorter amount of time. One trick to doing this, is to take more breaks.

A critical step of self improvement is the realization and acceptance of your insignificance. The more humble you are, realizing that there is room for growth, the more willing you are to gain knowledge. Once you adopt this mindset, you will be more open-minded and receptive to new knowledge, which will lead to self-improvement.
