“You get the best out of others when you give the best of yourself.” Harvey S. Firestone
Self-improvement and personal development are two of the most important factors in our lives. It will define where we go, how happy we are, our success and overall growth. You can truly be anyone you desire if you put enough work in it, treat yourself and others with respect and try to get the best out of every moment in life.
I have for you a few awesome ways which will guide you and help you to become the best version of yourself and uncover your potential.
1. Who are you?
The first question you should ask yourself is who you actually are or what is your identity? Before you start the journey and set up some goals, you need to know yourself well enough to understand what makes you happy and what your desires are.
I know it may seem silly to you, but there is an enormous amount of people who never really thought about who they truly are. Dig in and find the right answer. What makes you happy? What means a success for you personally? What is your biggest dream? It is hard to become fully happy if you don’t know what exactly will make you feel that way. Give yourself some time away from all distractions and thought about who you are and who you want to become.
2. What is your purpose?
This one can be a little tricky. I found it quite challenging when I heard about this for the first time. Again, you need to dig deep down to find your purpose and have it in front of you every single day. It will become your motivation. I have for you a little exercise which is definitely worth of trying. When it was handed to me for the first time, I couldn’t believe how helpful it was. I was sure that I know my purpose but after doing this, not so much anymore.
As you can see it starts with a question and in the right box, you write your answer. Then it follows with serious of question starting with “Why?” E.g., if you replied in the second box that money is the most important thing in your career because it gives you security, the next question is “Why” again, so you can ask “Why it is important for you to have security?” Then write your answer in the third box and follow the same way until the end. This exercise opens the door to your WHY and purpose. Trust me if I tell you, once you are at #3 or #4, it will start to get harder and harder. I hope this will help you as it helped me in the past.

3. How can you help others?
Well, we talk about us as individuals but how can you and I help others to live better and happier? It is quite important to figure this out as well because helping others should be definitely part of your process how to become the best version of yourself. There are always people who welcome help or critically need it. Find the way how to give the best of you and support those in need. It may be a member of the family or friend; maybe you can do a volunteer work or donate some clothes. It doesn’t matter whether you are rich or poor, there is always a way to stand by others without spending a dollar. It will build your character and definitely raise the level of personal development and growth.
4. REMINDER – You are awesome!
And always remember that you are. If you want to be the best version of yourself, you must love yourself and have confidence. You are individual who is unique and capable of anything you want and dream of. It is crucial that you remember this about yourself. Being humble is a must, but so healthy self-esteem. Don’t let people bring you down and work towards what you want. Remind yourself every day that you are important human being with unlimited potential within. In case you struggle with your self-confidence, you want to read this.
