When building your profitable practice, it’s important to be the best version of yourself. If you could change one thing in your life, what would it be? What one big area would you like to improve or change? If you have things you want to accomplish that will help you become your best self, you are to be commended. Many people are happy with just waking up and making it through the rat race every day. They don’t strive for anything better or bigger. Their “good enough” existence is good enough, and they’re happy with that. You’re not wired that way. How do we know that? You wouldn’t be reading this article now if you didn’t spend significant time trying to create a more fulfilling, happy, and successful life.
That having been said, how do you answer the following question?
What does being your best self mean to you?
It’s important to focus on your true self, not on what others want you to be.
Make Sure to Answer According to Your Personal Standards
Did you have some quick, knee-jerk answers to that question? If so, that might be because society or your friends and family have influenced your thinking. This could be happening unconsciously. You don’t realize that the constant and endless media messages or influences of society and your loved ones have caused you to attempt to live through their eyes and values.
That’s why you should answer the question above according to who you really are. What are your values and beliefs? What ideas do you hold near and dear to your heart, values you won’t surrender for anyone? Keep them in mind when you try to determine what being your best self really means.
This will ensure that you spend your time and energy pursuing something important.
Checking things off your important to-do list can be difficult. You already know this. Life seems to get in the way when you’re making significant progress in some area of your life. This is why it’s so important to pursue big change relevant to who you are, the unique individual that is you and you only.
When life decides to slow down your progress, you’re going to need to motivate yourself. That’s difficult to do if some change you’re trying to make doesn’t align with your values and beliefs. Take some time to clearly define what the better-than-ever version of you looks like. How is it different from your current reality? Then develop a step-by-step plan that gets you from where you are now to the best version of yourself according to who you are and not according to others.
Your best self requires a strong belief in yourself. Check out our blog post here for tips on building your self-belief.
