Being the best version of yourself is a hot topic nowadays. People become aware of how they live and try to grow. But here I will describe 5 simple steps that you can take right now to become the best version of yourself.
1. Try, Try and Try…
One of the first things I have learned is that you need to try. What do I mean by saying that you need to try new things? If you have a job or a life which you are not satisfied by, then you just change the things you don’t like. It is as simple as that. I used to complain about a certain kind of things. I asked myself: “Does complaining help you in any way?”. The answer is NO!
The way to change something into something you actually like is by trying new things and see if you can find what you truly like. You see the people who tell you that they don’t enjoy their lives, are the people who actually don’t know what they truly like and that is the whole problem of the societies we live in right now. Children get educated by people who are totally negative all the time or by people who act as if they can help the children, but they don’t help the children.
It is a truth that you cannot learn life, you need to experience life. What do I mean with this? I mean that you cannot truly know what you like if you never even tried to understand who you are and where your true potential lies. I really believe that personal development should be taught in schools.
2. Dare to be alone
One of the biggest issues nowadays. The fact that nobody wants to be or dares to be alone sometimes. I think this is crucial if you want to grow to the person you want to become.
Well, the reason that this skill is so crucial to developing yourself to the person you want to become is that, if you truly want to understand who you are, then you need to be aware of yourself. The way to do this is by taking the time to think about your life, your talents and what you want to become. Spend your time wisely. Life is about you. Sure you need to take time to hang out with friends and enjoy time with family, but don’t underestimate the fact that you need to take time for yourself too.

3. Set goals
Having a goal or having goals is crucial if you want to become the best version of yourself. It is important to understand where you want to go. If you know where you are heading towards, it will become easy for you to understand which skills you need to acquire in order to become the best version of yourself.
Well, I want to become an entrepreneur. So, I will learn how to become an entrepreneur. The first thing is to have a business idea. And so on. Having something to work to, is very important when it comes to becoming the best version of yourself. Gather the skills you need to become what you want to become.
4. Read books
Reading books opens up a whole new world for you. You will discover new ways of thinking. Having different points of view is very important if you want to become the best version of yourself. Don’t just read books about personal development, but also about history, business and other stuff. This broadens your look on the world.
It really helps you to understand how other people did things during the same situations you were in.
5. Think about the bigger picture
We like to think about short term successes, but is that really useful to do? We live in a world where everything needs to be fast, but a lot of things take time. You need to invest in the bigger picture which you are trying to achieve. Invest time to think about what you want to become in 10 years or 20 years. Based upon this long term goal, make up short term goals you need to achieve in order to get the bigger picture.
Success takes time. Define for yourself what success means to you. When are you successful? When are you satisfied? When have you achieved your goal? What are you going to do when you have achieved your goal? You get what I mean right?
