Being Your Best

We all want to be better at Something in our life, but where do we start? 

There’s no question that self-improvement is a worthwhile goal. Who doesn’t want to feel happy, fulfilled, and content in life?

But wanting something and knowing how to get it are two different things.

That’s why we put together 20 of the absolute best ways to become someone who makes you content and proud to be who you are.

Let’s dive in…

How to Become a ‘Better You’

1. Sort yourself Out

Before you can improve yourself, you first need to take an honest look at your life and decide what needs to change.

Form a vision of who you want to be and start structuring your life around that vision.

Figure out what’s essential and what isn’t, and put your energy into what will make you happier in the long term.

2. Improve Your Self-Talk

You are how you think.

Our thoughts have a lot to do with how we feel and experience the world. And one of the most effective ways to influence your thoughts is through self-talk.

Self-talk is the inner dialogue that we have with ourselves.

It can be positive or negative, and it has a significant impact on our feelings and behavior.

If we have a lot of negative self-talk, it leads to low self-esteem and causes us to act in ways that aren’t in our best interest.

But if we learn to practice positive self-talk, it can help us feel better about ourselves and achieve our biggest aims.

3. Radiate Positive Energy

One of the most powerful things you can do for yourself is radiate positive energy out into the world.

If you feel like there’s another person inside of you holding you back from being your best self, you’re not alone.

We all have an inner critic who likes to mess with us, but we can overcome it luckily.

When we radiate positive energy, we become more confident, and our inner critic starts to fade away.

4. Train Your Brain and Your Body

It’s easy to think of ourselves as singular, isolated entities.

But the truth is that our minds and bodies are inextricably linked, and what we do with one affects the other.

That’s why it’s essential to train both your body and your brain.

Think of your brain and body as a team. You need to train both to see the best results. 

Keep learning new skills, challenging yourself mentally, and living with an open mind.

5. Set Clear and Epic Goals

Goals give you a precise idea of where you want to be in the future and how you plan on getting there.

The difference between a goal and a fantasy is a deadline and a plan.

Once you set clear and epic goals, you now have Something tangible to work towards instead of just being aimless about what direction you want your life to go in.

It’s essential to identify areas that need improvement and to have a concrete plan, then relentlessly implement it until you have what you want.

6. Make a Schedule That Works

There’s one thing you can do that will improve your life exponentially.

Make a schedule and follow it!

Following a schedule lets you get more done with less effort.

You can prioritize what needs your attention and how to get the most done in an efficient way.

Planning what you need to do and when you’re going to do it puts you in an absolute position of power.

Now you’re in control of your life, not the other way around.

Use an app, a journal, or a piece of scrap paper. However you choose to do it, make sure you have a schedule that works.

7. Listen to Smart People Speak

One of the best ways to improve yourself is listening to intelligent people talk. 

Start by listening to a podcast and world-renowned entrepreneurship, personal development, and productivity experts.

Learn how they use habits, mindfulness, meditation, and more to become the best version of themselves.

You’ll learn insights that you can then apply to produce similar results for yourself.

Start by listening more closely – not just passively hearing what other people are saying.

But taking time to give them your full attention and understanding, and then thinking about what they’ve said.

8. Form a Vision of an Ideal You

What would you like to change about yourself?

It can be tough to know where to start. But a great way to begin is by formulating a vision of your ideal self.

What does that person look, sound, and act like?

When you have a clear image in your head, it’s more straightforward to take the necessary steps towards becoming that person.

To achieve our aims in life, we must first have a clear idea of our intentions.

If you don’t have a clear vision of your ideal self, how can you ever hope to become that person?

9. Find New Hobbies and Interests

Have you been stuck in the same routine for too long? It’s time to shake things up a bit and try Something new.

If you’re doing the same things day in and day out without any real excitement or purpose, you need to change your approach.

Find new hobbies and interests. They can help you learn new things, meet new people, and make your life more enjoyable.

Living productive lives, we often have very little time for ourselves.

One way to combat that is to find new hobbies and interests and block out time in your schedule to enjoy them.

10. Keep Your Standards High

High standards propel you to reach your higher potential. 

And that’s what it takes to live your best life – setting the bar high and going for it.

You’ll be surprised at how much you can accomplish when you do.

One thing that seems to be a common factor in people living meaningful lives is maintaining high personal standards.

You constantly push yourself to be better and achieve more when you have extraordinary standards.

That’s what leads to an abundant and fulfilling life.

11. Be Willing to Change

We all have a belief system, our own set of beliefs we carry around with us.

Beliefs can be either positive or negative.

If you’re looking to change your life somehow, the first thing you need to do is get clear on the type of person you want to be.  

How would they behave differently than how you currently are?  What needs to happen for this person to come out?

Be willing and open-minded enough to change what you have to. 

It’s time to get real.

The only person that can make the necessary change is you.

Ultimately, it’s up to YOU to decide how much effort you’ll put into making positive changes in your life.

12. Think Less About the Past

Aren’t you sick of your past constantly popping up in your life?

Thinking less about your past won’t erase it, but it can help you get on with your life.

You don’t need to dwell on things that have already happened; focus on the present and the future. 

By thinking less bout your past, you’ll be opening yourself up to new opportunities and a more satisfying life.

You can’t move forward if you’re always looking backward. 

The key to moving forward is to let go of your past and focus on creating a life you love today.

13. See Through a Positive Lens

It’s time to change how you view the world.

If you’re not getting what you want, try seeing life through a more positive lens.

It’s not always easy to stay positive when things are bleak.

But the optimistic mindset will become second nature with practice and persistence.

When challenges arise, they won’t seem insurmountable.

One of the most fundamental choices in life is how we choose to see the world. 

It’s your choice. Do you want to see it through a negative lens, or do you want to see it through a positive one?

14. Seek New Experiences

Exposing yourself to new experiences opens you up to new opportunities and growth. 

You might meet new people who share your interests or learn Something wholly new and exciting.

There are endless possibilities when it comes to trying new things.

You can travel to new places, take up a new hobby, or even try a different meal tonight.

Get out there and do what scares you a little bit—something you’ve wanted to do but haven’t.

Experiencing new things can be scary at first, but it’s also advantageous to your long-term success. 

15. Challenge Yourself More

Challenges push us outside of our comfort zone and force us to learn new things we wouldn’t have otherwise discovered, building on our strengths and fixing our weaknesses.

When we consistently do difficult things, we build a stronger sense of self-confidence and accomplishment, leading to greater fulfillment.

16. Form Better Habits

Many people try to make changes in their lives by making huge, sweeping resolutions.

This rarely works.

If you want to form better habits and see fundamental differences in your life, you need to take a more gradual, step-by-step approach.

We all have habits. Whether checking our phone and eating junk food, or more positive habits like exercise and reading.

By taking the time to establish healthy new habits and getting rid of bad ones, you can create a foundation for a more comfortable, healthier life.

17. Treat Yourself Like a Friend

What if the way to improve your life was by being kinder and more compassionate towards yourself? You might think this is ridiculous “woo woo” nonsense, but it’s true.

It may sound counter-intuitive, but treating yourself well will help you have an even better life. 

To show up for others in our lives, we need to know how to take care of ourselves first. 

I’ll start with remembering that you don’t have to be perfect and forgiving yourself when making mistakes.

18. Hone Your Look

Science has shown that our brains are hardwired to associate attractiveness with positive qualities. 

If you want to shake things up a bit, improving your appearance is a great place to start.

Appearances matter. This is especially true for your personal life and how you present yourself to the world.

People who look successful are perceived as being more successful, and people who look happy are generally considered happier than those who don’t.

19. Eliminate Distractions 

Eliminating distractions is within your power, but how do you go about eliminating them?

It starts with identifying what’s important and making a commitment to focus on those things to the exclusion of everything else.

When random things start vying for your attention, remind yourself they’re nothing but distractions and refocus on what counts.

Simplifying your environment and learning how to say no are two easy ways to eliminate unnecessary distractions from your life.

20. G.O.Y.A.

Are you someone who has difficulty taking action?

Do you find that you often start with great intentions but somehow never seem to follow through? If so, you’re not alone.

You’re missing an essential part of the puzzle: GOYA!

GOYA is an acronym for Getting Off Your Ass!

If your life isn’t how you want it, it’s time to take massive, deliberate action to make improvements.

No action, no results. Ideas mean nothing, and potential means nothing.

All that counts is what you’ve done to make yourself a better person and enhance your life and the lives of the people around you.
