How to Become The Best Version Of Yourself

Self-growth is a must for every individual, but only a few canleap toward the best versions of themselves. Becoming a better version of yourself isn’t an easy task. Every self-development project demands intentionality, consistent efforts, and discipline to pull off. 

Here are a few tips to become the best version yourself.


Define Yourself

The road to becoming the best version of yourself starts with a clear image of what that version looks like. What does your future think? In what spaces would you exist? What are yourcapabilities? Define yourself and the characteristics you want to portray over the change period. Don’t just visualize them; write the characteristics down. Ponder over them until you're sure the vision of your future self is spotless and convincing enough. 


Live Healthily

A huge part of living your best life depends on your diet and daily fitness habits. So you may be shooting yourself in the foot if you don’t make self-care a priority. Eating a balanced diet with enough vegetables and fruits should be non-negotiable if you want to live your best life. If you feel that going vegan will get you on that healthy part, why not try it? There are many tasty vegan recipes that offer the vitamins and minerals your body needs. Let’s not forget that vegan desserts are delicious and easy to prepare at home.


Also, try to develop a personalized fitness routine. It doesn't need to be intensive, and there are various options to choose from. For instance, you can try a home routine of squats, jumps, and crunches if your daily schedule does not allow you to visit the gym. Another way to take care of your body, which we often downplay, is to have enough rest. Experts recommend seven to nine hours of sleep daily to be ideal for adults. 


Align Your Goals 

Remember the intentionality and consistency of self-development projects? This is where it comes in handy. The visualized image of your future self shouldn't be a siloed part of the self-development process. For the most part, your vision counts as the end goal and must be a top consideration at every stage of your self-development journey, including goal setting.


Ensure your goals follow the SMART template. Are your goals specific enough? Ambiguities can delay the growth process and make it frustrating. Develop indicators to measure incremental efforts. Keep all objectives within reach and not outside of your capacity. You may develop various goals but only adopt those relevant to your vision. Have a timeframe for which you can complete specific activities and ensure tasks don’t overlap. 


Embrace Failure 

The journey to becoming the best version of yourself isn’t linear. There’s no one-size-fits-all template, and you'll learn from your own experiences more than someone's idea of what the process should be like. Failure shouldn't make you afraid of the future. Don’t execute your self-development tasks with a defeatist mentality. Rather, think of failures as lessons that need to be learned.


Grow Past Validation Seeking 

The fear of failure might force you to tell people to lower their expectations when dealing with you. You may be forced to please people, seeking their validation before feeling accomplished. 

Embracing failure frees you, setting you on a more confident path with a significant appreciation for the small achievements and the big milestones. 


Generally, the best version of yourself doesn't live outside of your current self and shouldn’t be impossible. These tips can help open yourself enough for the best version of yourself to emerge.
