How To Become The Best Version Of Yourself



Want to know how you can become the best version of yourself?

That’s a question I asked myself two months ago. It was the new year, which meant a more productive, smarter me.

And now after working hard towards this goal, I’ve found an algorithm that will allow you to unlock your full potential and be all that you’re destined to be!

So, if this is something you’re looking to do then all you need to do is scroll below:



Start with the vision

First things first, you need to realize what that best version of yourself looks like.

Remember, it needs to be your vision and no one else’s. Other people will have many expectations from you, but being the best version of yourself needs to start with you and not with them.

What does the best version of yourself look like?



You ALWAYS need to do more…

It’s as simple as that. Successful career women did not get to where they were by just taking the day as it comes.

You need to prepare for the day and for the weeks ahead. And if you want to be the best of the best even in your career then you need to put the work in behind the scenes.

That means using any bit of spare time you have to improve on yourself. Of course, save those days where you can relax, but rather than reading your favorite crime thriller on your commute, try reading a book that will inspire and motivate you.

In order to succeed you need to be one step ahead. You need fresh ideas and to understand your field more than anyone else. And the only way you can do this is by taking the time to do it. Take a look at these books we recommend, or try listening to podcasts – these ones changed everything for me.



Embrace the unknown

You can’t expect to be the best version of yourself if you don’t take risks and just play it safe.

Take me for example, I had a successful job where I was on good money and managing a team of 70. However, I wasn’t enthused waking up every day. It wasn’t my passion. And leaving this job and taking a risk was the best thing that ever happened to me.

Don’t let the fear of money and bills stress you out or hold you back.

Because you never know, getting fired may actually be the best for you. Life is all about risks and changes. But know that it will be fine.

The best version of yourself could be waiting for you.



Grow from your mistakes

If you don’t embrace failure or give up easily you will never be the best version of yourself.

Life is tough and success isn’t easy, but that certainly does not mean you can’t smash it.

Let me tell you that mistakes are human, they happen, but it’s how you react to those mistakes that really matter.

For example, I had to organize a big huge campaign shoot with models and we were shooting at 9 AM! I was also responsible for booking the camera and photographer for that morning. But I had forgotten to do it.

It wasn’t until 9 AM when my boss asked me if the camera was on the way. That I realized, of course, it wasn’t.

Rather than crying, stressing out and letting it get to me I decided to bounce back and come up with a solution, which I did.

And that’s what you need to do. Find a solution, don’t give up. You’ve made the mistake, fix it, grow from it, and learn from it.



Be the sort of person you would admire

I want to be someone people look up to. And I’m guessing you’re the same too.

To be the best version of yourself, you need to become this person. And this involves being kind, responsible and helpful.

Give to others and help them be the best version of themselves too. Because, if you were selfish, you certainly wouldn’t be the best you could be.

Whilst it’s cool to be the high-powered boss, it doesn’t mean you need to be nasty to be successful. Be kind always.
