Become the Best Version of Yourself: 10 Difficult Steps to Excellence

It’s nice to be yourself, do what you want (and a little – what you must), enjoy life (and a little – be upset) … But there is always where to grow in order to become better even in your own eyes. And others will appreciate the fact of it. Here are several areas of development in which perfection has no limit.

Love

People. Work. Partner. Family. Friends. Hobby. Stop worrying about what should make you happier, but does not. Focus on the positive attitude to what already brings joy! Happiness does not come from anywhere, you can not take someone else’s happiness and be content, you just need to design your own. We know best what we want from life. Even if sometimes we lie to ourselves and others. But one day you will reach the boiling point and start to be frank with yourself. The main thing is not to miss the moment!

Be a role model

Mahatma Gandhi said: “Be that change that you would like to see in the world.” Trite, but true. You can yell at the waiter who mistook the orders, shout at the first person who accidentally stepped on your leg … And you can behave exactly the opposite – and impress them much more! Negative emotions take minutes of life, positive – add. The choice is yours.

Find time for yourself

Even if you have a family, work and a lot of things, it is very important to find a moment in your daily bustle to be alone with yourself. Understand some thoughts, feel their reactions, just sit and think about nothing.

Go in for sports

No, it’s not necessary to live in the gym, it’s enough to do exercises, run, swim from time to time – in general, do what pleases you. Contrary to popular belief, sport affects not only your appearance – it also strengthens your spirit, makes you more disciplined and more confident.

Read books

Despite the fact that the adult’s brain is not so mobile and able to learn new things, as in childhood, it is important to learn something every day. Memory is trained, curious facts get stuck in the brain, and a well-written novel brings a lot of joy. Instead of reflecting on ephemeral things or getting angry at the world, when you are stuck in traffic jams on a highway or during an especially long trip on public transport, read a book. After all, this is a real teleport, which works even cooler than the teleports in Star Trek!

Have sex

For a happy life, in most cases, healthy intimate relationships are important. It is not necessary to marry a first person at once, but to shun men, “because they have only one thing in mind,” is irrational.

Accept changes

From a new hobby, with an attitude to which you have not figured out yet, to something serious like moving to another city or country. If the changes are inevitable, what is the point of worrying about them? If you treat them calmly and even happily, life will quickly return to normal.

Sleep

It sounds ridiculous, but your mood and state of mind during the day depend on a good sleep. Therefore, if you can not get enough sleep on working days, do not be ashamed of a day’s sleep on weekends or miss a meeting with friends in order to spend time with a pillow.
