Better: How do we become better people?

Ever since we were young, we were told to excel in academics, focus on getting good grades and ace our exams. In schools and colleges, the learning has always been more directed towards academic courses but the importance of self-improvement often goes unnoticed. The problem is you cannot run away from yourself. 

So how do we strive to be better people?
