Better Version Of Yourself

We all like to be the better version of ourselves. Or at least most of us do, I hope. Everyday should be an improvement over the day before. Each day we should be getting better and always improving on the better version of ourselves. Self-improvement is always the the key. Here are a few ways I use to continue to improve myself. Some ways are easier than others, but I try to work on something daily.

Tips:

  • Honest self-reflection – It’s important to be honest with yourself about who you are, where you are right now and where you want to go. Anything less, you’re doing yourself a disservice.
  • Maximize your strength – Those strengths that you have should be utilized to help create the better version of yourself.
  • Work through your weaknesses – We all have weaknesses. Identify them and begin working on them. No, don’t tackle them all at once.
  • Commit to long term therapy – Commit to taking the time you need to improve.
  • Practice mediation – Remember the simple and most important things.
  • Give back to others – Be kind and generous. Giving back to others don’t have to be huge and/or publicized.
  • Get out of your comfort zone – One small step out of your comfort zone will help you step further out. You never know what you’ll like until you do it.
  • Imagine who you want to be. What does that look like? – You should be able to visualize the best version of yourself.
  • Develop a thick skin – This takes work, but will benefit you as you continue grow.
  • Figure out what you need to change to get there – Don’t wait, start making those changes today.
  • Adopt good habits – Once you start getting rid of bad habits you need to fill that space with good habits.
  • Break down the ideal you into small managable steps
  • Create a plan and list of goals – 1/2/3/5/8/10 years – Look at it regularly to keep you focused
  • Do the small steps everyday – Yes everyday
  • Learn new skills – This always helps you grow and get better.
  • Create bigger steps – As you start completing the small steps, move on to the bigger steps.
  • Be happy
  • Praise yourself – You may not be where you want to be, but progress is progress, celebrate it.
