To become the finest version of yourself, you must return to your original self. As simple as it seems, it is anything but: genuine self-discovery takes bravery and determination. To become closer to your true self, you must let go of distracting false ideas that veil or distort your experience of yourself.
The more you learn about who you are, the better you will be able to understand others' needs and desires, and help them find the same freedom and joy that you have found. This makes it possible for you to make a difference in this world. It also gives your life purpose and meaning.
As you grow into yourself, you will discover new ways to express yourself, stretch your limits, and expand your potential. You will also come to appreciate and enjoy yourself more than ever before. The more you know yourself, the more you are able to understand others.
You are a product of everything that has happened to you so far - both good and bad. But there is no need to stay trapped in this history books have made us out to be. It is up to you to decide what role you will play in the future. Will you continue to live according to other people's expectations and behave in ways that do not reflect who you really are? Or will you start living your own life now?
The best version of yourself is one step ahead of everyone else.
Being the best version of yourself requires you to move away from where you are now, therefore you must be willing to let go of your old self. When you raise your own bar, you effectively create a chasm between yourself and others around you. You're saying that you want to be better than they are, which makes you feel like less of them and more of you.
The next step is to figure out how to get there. If you want to be the best version of yourself, you need to work on your mindset as well as your skills. Your mindset determines your behavior; so if you want to be your best self, you have to think like it too.
Your behavior is shaped by your environment. So if you want to be the best version of yourself, you need to put yourself in situations where you can improve. For example, if you want to be the best runner, you should join a running club and participate in races of all distances from 5km to 26 miles.
Finally, remember that you are always only one version of yourself away from being the best version of yourself. There's no single right way to live your life. Just find a way that works for you and never look back.
