Being The Best Version Of Yourself

Being the best version of yourself is something that definitely takes a lot of time and life experience but something I personally think is incredibly important to always be aiming at.

There is little joy and happiness in being a pale reflection of who you can actually be. Surely everyone wants to be successful and happy and ultimately it starts with you and the choices you make.

  • Being the best version of you is about you. There is nothing wrong with being inspired, motivated or directed to other paths by different individuals but emulating someone else will not bring you the results you’re after.
  • These things take time. There is no quick fix to being a better you who succeeds in what they put their mind to. All that matters is moving in the right direction and accepting the hurdles that go along with it.

  • Learn from your mistakes. Don’t perceive bumps in the road as the be all and end all.
  • Remaining positive is also key. As I’ve touched on a few times, success isn’t an easy path and you will often have set backs that make you question what you’re doing. If you remain positive and believe that trying mediation for the 10th time is important as the benefits are so great, then you’ve got this!
  • When it comes to being a better version of you, you need to actively aim at this end and participate in things that will help this. If you believe a better you is one who masters particular skills that you’re talented at, then sitting watching tv isn’t going to work. You need to take lessons, educate yourself and practice to improve.

Do you have any tips on becoming a better version of yourself?

    Absolutely, life is a journey and it takes time to get to know yourself and not compare. Comparing, even through it is hard to stop it, really takes the joy away. Lovely post! 😄

    These are great pieces of advice to follow. I firmly agree becoming the best version of yourself takes time, it’s constant progression. Spending time alone is an essential part of that. For me, my faith has been instrumental in becoming the best version of myself, I am learning so much about myself and working towards the calling on my life, It’s important to remember that our past decisions/mistakes do not define us. Every day we wake up is a gift and we get the opportunity to make concrete steps to becoming a better version of ourselves :). I love posts like this! Thank you for sharing this.

    I don’t have any tips but I think all of these are great! Understanding that things take time to be the person you want to be. You can’t change over night. Learning and taking things day by day I think is the most important part and being patient in the process.

    lovely and motivational piece of writing … I hope we all get there. One thing I believe is that the best version of everybody exists — and that version is SUPERHUMAN.
