Be your best self...
Be who you really are – your genuine, comfortable and authentic self. This way you develop your self-worth, your self-esteem and yourself generally! Acting as if it is fine until you get there, but acting as if you are someone else entirely will get tiresome and stressful, and in the end you will lose... you.
Exaggerate a little on who you want to be. We are constantly learning, growing and developing our ideas and our needs. We have to push a little on that comfort zone to make things happen! So a little exaggeration – a different word to describe you, your talent or your new goal – can do that for you. Instead of “I did it!” try “I did it well!” or “better”. Just a little push...
See yourself as others see you as well as how you see you. What you actually see in a mirror is not what others see of you – it’s just your reflection. Others see someone completely different physically, practically and therefore emotionally more than likely! So ask them. Why not? Ask them how they see you, what is good or might need a little attention – not for them, but for you. Reflection is good for us – in the mirror to see how we think we look, but also that ever crucial reflection from others that influences us more than sometimes we know! Just try it...
Try something new for you! How? What do you usually eat for breakfast? Lunch, dinner, supper? Where do you exercise? How long do you take to do a piece of work or think about a problem? All these and many, many other things in your life can be changed, tweaked and maybe improved. Sometimes this checking out and monitoring shows us just how good we are! Try something new every day...
Continue to develop yourself day by day, week by week. It's inevitable we want to and aim to, so being in control of it just makes it more effective for you!
