What’s stopping you from becoming the person you truly want to be?
Authentic self-discovery requires courage and tenacity, even though it can appear to be so simple.
Getting to know ourselves is an important part of living the best version of yourself, because the relationship with ourselves is the absolute longest relationship that we will have in this lifetime. Even longer than our parents, longer than our siblings, our loved ones, our partners, our spouses, or our kids.
It is the relationship that really determines everything for us.
If we are not loving to ourselves, and we are not kind to ourselves, and really nurturing exactly who we are, it is very difficult for us to be that way towards other people. And it’s also difficult to create that in other relationships.
Therefore it’s so important to take some time for self-reflection — look at where are you not living up to your potential?
Write down some of the answers to these questions:
- How do you feel inside?
- What brings you more joy?
- What are your talents?
- What are the things that you want to be doing?
- How do you want to be treated?
- How do you want to treat yourself?
- How do you want to really show up in the world?
Time is precious and our time is so limited.
The way that we choose to spend our time, who we choose to spend it with, how we choose to spend it, and the things that we get to do in this lifetime are important.
To get closer to your true self, you must turn away from distracting false beliefs that cloud or distort your perception of who you truly are.
Turn Away From False Beliefs
One of the main roadblocks that stands in the way of uncovering your true self is false beliefs. These are thought patterns that have been learned over time and may not even be true – they simply act as barriers between who we are and who we want to be.
For example, if a person has been told their entire life that they will never achieve certain goals, they may believe those statements as truth and give up before they even try. It is important to work through these false beliefs and realize that any limitations are only the ones we put on ourselves.
Once we recognize these false beliefs, we can start to turn away from them and begin creating new ones based on our own values and experiences instead.
Another thing that prevents people from being their best selves is insecurity – feeling like no matter how hard you try or how much progress you make, it’s never enough.
This mindset keeps us from enjoying our successes or moving forward with our goals because we fear failure or rejection instead of embracing it as part of learning and growing. We need to learn how to celebrate our accomplishments rather than letting insecurity keep us from taking risks or pushing outside our comfort zone.
Fear of Change
Fear of change can also stand in the way of becoming our best selves. We know we have the potential to grow but may worry about how much work it will take or what sort of impact it will have on our lives if things do not turn out as expected.
Change can be difficult but also incredibly rewarding; learning how to embrace it instead of running away from it can help us create meaningful growth in our lives both personally and professionally.
So, look at your life right now and see how you can start to live your best life.
What would it take for you to be your true authentic self. It’s about aligning all of yourself… your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual cells. And bringing that together, integrating those four aspects of ourselves, integrating it into one and being able to express that into the world.
Here are some ways that you can get started to become the best version of yourself
Identify Your Strengths & Weaknesses
To become the best version of yourself, it’s important to identify both your strengths and weaknesses, so you can focus on improving them both accordingly. Identifying your weaknesses allows you to develop strategies for working through them; identifying your strengths gives you the confidence to tap into them more fully.
Once you’ve identified these areas, make sure that you’re setting realistic goals for yourself so that you can achieve success in each area over time rather than feeling overwhelmed by an unrealistic timeline or expectations from others.
In order to become our best selves, we must embrace gratitude for what we already have. This doesn’t mean ignoring our struggles or pretending that everything is perfect all the time; rather, it means taking stock of what we have accomplished so far and what we have been blessed with.
This could involve recognizing how far we have come since childhood or simply making time for ourselves each day. Whatever form this gratitude takes on for us personally, it is essential in building confidence and pushing us further towards reaching our goals.
Take Small Steps Towards Change
Once we have identified our false beliefs, identify strengths and weakness, and embraced gratitude for what we already have, it’s time to take small steps towards change.
Remember that everyone has their own unique journey in life and there will be setbacks along the way; don’t let these setbacks stop you from continuing forward towards your goal of becoming the best version of yourself possible!
Even small steps towards achieving a goal can help build momentum towards eventual success—so don’t be afraid to take risks and try new things!
This could involve setting achievable goals that focus on specific areas where growth is desired or simply changing up daily routines to create new habits that will help propel us forward over time. It’s also important not to set unrealistic expectations for ourselves; instead, focus on making small but meaningful changes that will eventually lead up to bigger accomplishments down the line.
And stay positive throughout this process.
Becoming the best version of yourself requires courage and tenacity but it doesn’t have to be a daunting task if you break it down into smaller steps along the way.
Start by turning away from false beliefs that cloud or distort your perception of who you truly are; then identify both your strengths and weaknesses so that you can focus on improving them accordingly.
Finally, stay positive throughout this process and remember that taking action is key—even small steps towards achieving a goal can help build momentum towards eventual success!
