This life is about progress. How much impact did you make today? How much did you do in order to make yourself better? Are you happy about how things are going? Great questions. This is what it is about. Going beyond yourself. Where do you start? Read on.
1. How well do you know yourself?
Well, the first and most important question is, how well do you know yourself? I say this a lot of times. This is something I am aware of, but this is the most important question in life. How well do you know yourself? When you look at your life, how many times did you think about what people said about you? How many times did you feel down when somebody rejected you?
This is the start of everything and in order to go beyond who you are right now, you need to be able to reflect on yourself and know who you really are. This is the only way to become a better you. If you know yourself better, you will become more aware of people and you can really see what you can and can’t.
You don’t need anybody to tell you what you can and can’t do. What do they know about you? Should I tell you? Nothing. The reason why you can’t move beyond yourself is that you don’t know who you are and what you can do. This the reason that you are who you are and made no progress at all. Don’t be scared about what people will tell you. Dare to know who you are.
2. Dare to be alone
One of the most important skills I have been developing over the years is the skill to dare to be alone. Once you start realizing that you need to get yourself to the top you will see that you are alone on the path to success. Only you will be able to get yourself up. Who cares if you fail? The only thing your friends will do is to say that you need to keep your head up and just keep going.
These are kind words, but they won’t make you go beyond yourself. If you want to achieve something big, you need to know that you will be alone from time to time and that is okay. I even challenge you to take more time just to be alone. Take time to think. I am serious about this. Take time to think.
If you want to grow you need to know yourself. After that, you need to take more time to be alone and grow yourself. Take the steps. Don’t be afraid. You must never be dependent on people. Only you can take better care of yourself than anybody else. So dare to be alone and step up your personal development game.
3. Learn more
Now it is time to get up and do something. When was the last time that you picked up the learning to learn a new skill? When was the last time that you took the time to read a good book in order to learn something new? If you want to move beyond yourself, you need to be able to learn a new skill or crick up your knowledge level.
Learning is such a gift. Most of the people take this for granted and they are just the same as every year. They don’t make any progress. Year in year out they keep the same knowledge level. That is not somebody you want to be. We got ourselves a nice piece of machinery called our brains. If you don’t use it then why are you complaining about your life? That is why I said that you really need to take time in order to know yourself better. Take the time to talk to yourself. Write down what you want to do and write down what you need to learn in order to achieve that goal. Just go for it. Nobody will do it for you.
You are responsible for your own learning. If you want to grow every single year, you must be eager to learn new things. That is the only way to make more progress than anybody else.
4. Do you have one?
Do you know where you want to be within a couple of years? Do you know what you want to do and do you know how you want to get there? The question remains: “Do you have a goal?” This is such an important thing. I never had a goal in life and I now know how it feels to have a goal in life. That is the reason why I tell you that you need to have one too.
If you know what you want, you can make a roadmap on how to get what you want. I am not saying that everything will go as planned, but you can always change a plan. Determine your goal and make a roadmap. Learn the skills you need in order to come where you want to be. If you want to move beyond yourself then you need to have goals.
There are a lot of people around who say that they want to grow, but how many of them know how to get beyond the person they are right now? Nobody really knows. In this post I wanted you to know the most important things in order to get beyond yourself.
The first and most important thing is that you know yourself. Take time to think about your situation. Where are you right now? and where do you want to be? This is really crucial if you want to become more than what you are right now.
The second one is that you need to take more time for yourself. Dare to be alone. When was the last time you learned about a new skill? Crick up your knowledge level is the third one. If you want to grow you need to learn more.
Last but not least, Have a goal in life.
