Be the best version of yourself.

Becoming the best version of yourself is more than just reaching a health goal, it’s accepting and loving yourself at every stage, the high, middle and lows while working towards it.

One of the biggest mistakes we make while trying to do that is having other people as our “goal”. I use to be one of those who would always have a fitness model as my goal, but then when I didn’t even look close to them, I would find myself feeling disappointed and would give up. This made me realize that I should only set becoming my best self as my goal.

Becoming your strongest, healthiest, and happiest self should be your only goal. And for this you’ll need to accept and love yourself, at whatever stage you are at. 

If you set your goal to be like someone else, you will always be disappointed. Everyone is unique in their own way, therefore you will never have the same exact body as someone else, unless you get surgery, and that still might not work.

You are beautiful just the way you are, and working on becoming your best self will just make you even more beautiful. You will be able to see your progress and the growth you’ve made.  

Use others to motivate you, learn from the things they have done to get to where they are at, and adjust it to your own lifestyle. But never copy exactly what they do. What works for someone might not work for you. This goes with everything in life.

One of the things you have to do in order to start working on becoming the best version of yourself is changing your mindset. You have to be patient and understand that everyone has their own journey. You will go through struggles, will need lots of discipline and dedication, you’ll need to let go of any unhealthy habits or people who are holding you back, but one thing you can’t do is give up on yourself.

You deserve to reach whatever goals you set for yourself. You deserve to be the healthiest, strongest, and happiest person you’ve ever met. It won’t be easy, but it is soooo worth it.

How can Daily Affirmations help you on your everyday life?

Ok. So when I added this tip on my How To Become More Confident post, I knew some people were going to think it was odd. But trust me, it is as important as all the others.

positive-daily-affirmations.jpgI am talking about talking to yourself. This may sound crazy, but it works. No, not like you’re crazy. You’ll be doing what some people call, Daily Affirmations. Positive self talk can be a way of getting you through tough times.

When I first started, I did feel a bit weird. But the more I kept going, the more I was believing what I was saying to myself and the more confident I was feeling.

The way you talk to yourself influences the way you feel about yourself, and even the way you treat others. When you tell yourself I know what I need to do to … , you immediately change your mindset from seeing things as a challenge rather than a problem. Making you a lot more confident in what you are doing.

Self TalkHow to:

Take a few deep breaths. Stand in front of a mirror and look at yourself in the eyes. Smile if it feels natural. Say your affirmations. Slowly and clearly. Repeat them a few times, focusing on the meaning of each word. Take another deep breath allowing your body to absorb the positive feeling.

Some examples may include:

“I am ready, happy and willing to receive money.”

“I am attracting my soulmate and my life is full of love and joy.”

“I am overflowing with love, joy and positive energy.”

“I can do anything.”

“I am the healthiest I have ever been.”

“I am confident, capable, and achieving everything I set my mind to.”

“I am attracting a better, happier life every day.”

These affirmations are your new best friends, they are food for your soul. You can also write them down and stick them all over your house, to remind you of the amazing person you are. Make sure you also do them first thing in the morning. Just like a good breakfast is fuel to start the great day, positive affirmations are the daily fuel for your mind and spirit.

It helps you boost your mood, helps perform better in things, it makes you aware of your thoughts, to know what you really want in life, helps reconnect with your feelings and enhance your perspective on the things in life.

Adding to talking to yourself, take care of yourself. Put on your favorite fragrance, groom yourself, take a nice long shower/bath, shave, nice makeup and dress nicely. You’ll not only smell delicious and look great, but it will for sure make you feel confident. You will feel like you are ready to tackle the world. And when you do it, tell yourself how amazing you look and feel.

So, now you know. Start being your own cheerleader, especially during times of stress or struggle. You’ll be less likely to focus on your failures when you do, and are perhaps more likely to learn from your mistakes. You’ll also have higher expectations for yourself.

Until next time my cuties!
