How to Become the Best Version of Yourself? Our generation is broken. We are all running in a race that we never signed up for. It is a race that has us chasing after material possessions and is filled with conceit, greed, envy, and discontent. It is a race that has left us a generation devoid of emotion, empathy, and love.
Isn't it unreal how we all think that we are chasing after self-fulfillment when, in fact, all we are trying to do is be better than those around us? The paradigm is set all wrong. Our priorities are set all wrong.
It isn't others that we are supposed to beat. It is us. It is our weaknesses and our procrastinating attitude that we must conquer. Only then can we achieve the best version of ourselves.
What Does It Mean to Be the Best Version of Yourself?
Becoming the best version of oneself is subjective and objective symbols and representations as a yardstick will only lead to disappointments. Your best version and your goals don't necessarily have to be consistent either. Life is all about learning and growing.
Being the best version of yourself basically means that you're calling the shots in your life. However, it doesn't mean that all these shots are home runs or everything is in your control. Simply facing all that that life throws at you and trying to see how it can take you towards the future that you have envisioned for yourself is where the best version of yourself lies.
3 Tips to Becoming the Best Version of Yourself
As we said, the road to becoming the best version of yourself will be different for everyone. However, here are three tips that might help you on this journey:
Define Your Future Self
Remember when we said how you should adapt to your circumstances and allow them to take you to your future self? Well, you must first define who this future self is? The best way to go about this is to define your objectives in measurable adjectives.
So, for instance, your future self is fit and eats healthy. Being fit is measurable and eating healthy is the way to becoming fit. So, you should write this down somewhere you can look at every day.
Talking about being fit, you should add a morning workout to your daily routine. It does wonders for your overall energy levels throughout the day. However, don't blame yourself on days that you can't stomach exercise either.
No great man ever walked the road to greatness alone. So, kick your pride aside and accept help from others. The road to becoming the best version of yourself can get quite lonely and tiresome otherwise. And, always be grateful for having loving people around you.
This is your life and your journey. It may not be as expeditious when it comes to reaping results but trust us when we say that it is unique and beautiful. And, you will get there. Just be patient.
