TOPIC: Some Tips For Becoming The Best Version Of Yourself

BIBLE TEXT: 2 Timothy 2:15

“Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.”

Authentic self-discovery is the beginning point of becoming a better version of yourself. This has to do with knowing who you are and knowing what you want to be in life. If you don’t have the mental picture and understanding of your personality, self improvement will be difficult. Your values make you who you are, but your standards define what you’re willing to accept in life. It is an aberration to agree or accept being anything less than your authentic, incredible, powerful self. Therefore, before you can be the best version of yourself, you must uncover your essential “you” – the values, interests and passions that define who you are in life and the world. Once you’ve identified the person you want to be, you can plan how to become the best version of yourself.

The first tip is to let go of limiting beliefs. Many people are held back by limiting beliefs. These are untrue thoughts we have about our intrinsic nature. By learning to recognize and let go of whatever limiting beliefs are keeping you from becoming the best version of yourself, you’re able to push forward and find the person you really are.

To be the best version of yourself, you must learn to turn your “shoulds” to “musts”. You need to live with no regrets. You need to get out of your comfort zone, take risks and fail so that you can get back up again and succeed. Stop telling yourself what you “should” do and make it a “must” to do what you must do.

Another tip to becoming the best version of yourself is to amplify your strengths. Focus on your strengths and you’ll get even stronger in those areas, becoming more fully yourself along the way. When you amplify your strengths, you remember what you’re bringing to the table, and you’ll crush the obstacles in your path.

To be the best version of yourself, try to develop a growth mindset. No one is made up of only strengths. We all have pain points that require attention if you want to be the best version of yourself. Successful people tackle this by having a growth mindset. They believe that there are no weaknesses. There are only opportunities for improvement. Rather than focusing on what they do badly, they focus on how they can improve – and take action to get there.

One more tip is to throw out expectations. Our beliefs create our world but unfortunately, sometimes our beliefs are not our own. Therefore don’t build your identity on others’ expectations. Your vision for who you want to be must be yours – no one else’s.

Beloved of God, you can be the best and a happier version of yourself. Be encouraged, keep standing, keep moving, keep trusting. Everything is going to be alright.
