I had a long talk with a good friend the other day, and she said something that I couldn’t agree more with. “You can always be a better version of yourself” she said, and that is so true. We can always aim to be better, and we should. Nobody’s perfect, but we can work on being as good as we can. That is a process we constantly need to work on, it’s a part of life. But here are some advices on how to become the best version of ourselves.
What and who is the best version of you?
Think about who the version of you is. How does that person think and act? What’s important to that person? Who are that person surrounded by? What are that person doing? Make a vision of who that person is, and try to become her.
Always do a bit more
The friend I mentioned earlier is very wise. Her name is Karoline, and she also told me that no matter what her job is, she always does a bit more than what’s required of her. I think that is so inspiring! If you add that ideology to every aspect of your life you will definitely become a better version of yourself. In addition, that’s how you get successful and achieve your goals.
Embrace the unknown
Way too many people are afraid of the unknown. Instead of being scared of it, embrace it. Learn about it. Study it. Show interest in it. Be humble with it. Smile to it and welcome it. The unknown is only scary because it is just that – unknown. By learning about – and from – it, you’ll become wiser.
Go out of your comfort zone
Comfort zones are such a strange thing. We are so scared of doing new things and uncomfortable things, but at the same time that’s exactly what we learn and grow the most from. By going out of our comfort zones we get more knowledge, more experience and not least a sense of achievement.
Grow from your mistakes
Everybody makes mistakes, and it is totally OK. But to become a better person we need to learn from our mistakes, grow from them. We need to reflect over what went wrong and how we can do it differently next time.
This is so simple and so powerful. Just be kind to the people around you, no matter who they are, how they act or what they do. To be kind doesn’t say anything about the people you are kind to, it says everything about you. Take care of the people around you, be caring, loving and kind. AND SMILE!
Aim to be the person you admire
Who do you look up to? Why do you look up to that person? Which qualities do you admire about that person? Think about who you admire and why you admire them, and aim to be that person or have that qualities.
