For becoming the best version of yourself you need to grow yourself every single day.
Try to learn new things daily and implement them into your life. Everything boils down to your daily habits.
Your daily habits should reflect your goals.
Just keep improving yourself 1% daily, it will be coumpounded to 3800% in a year and you’ll be more closer to becoming the better version of yourself.
1. Find your authentic self for becoming the best version of yourself.
Becoming the best version of yourself requires work but first of all you need to find your authentic self to make it the best version.
Just try new things for yourself and figure out your strengths and weaknesses. Nowadays we’re bombarded with too much noise and opinions of society that we lose our authentic self.
But if you really want to live a fulfilling life, you need to be authentic.
2. Improve your well-being.
We should work to improve our whole well-being.
I see many people just doing the things to fix the problems of their life but we have to stop these problems to show up in the first place. As the saying goes – Choose a healthy lifestyle, not just a successful career.
When you work on improving your whole well-being, I promise you, you’ll be more fulfilled than ever before.
3. Live for your values.
Values are our greatest assets.
They define who we we are on a fundamental level. Becoming the best version of yourself requires you to put your values in priority.
Different people have different values, some might value honesty, freedom, health, relationships etc.
By embracing and refining your values, you can become the best version of yourself.
4. Improve your communication skills.
This is a whole new category of Self improvement but we’ll cover it in a nutshell.
So why communication skills are necessary? It is because it is the way to interact with other people especially clients or those whom you want to serve.
So you should have the skills of speaking, listening and body language.
Improving these can help you in becoming the best version of yourself. You might have heard ‘Be a people person’.
It can be done only if you have proper communication skills.
We need to pay our fullest attention to the person we’re speaking or listening to, then we become easily approachable and others provides us various earlier-unknown opportunities.
5. Believe in yourself for becoming the best version of yourself.
Believe in yourself no matter what.
If you don’t believe in yourself, others won’t believe in you. “To be a champ, you need to believe in yourself when others don’t”.
Believing in yourself gives you authority to becoming the best version of yourself.
Authority to make things happen as well as learn from your mistakes. If you can’t believe in yourself right now, just pretend that you do and keep building the belief and at some point of time, you’ll eventually start believing in yourself.
Keep in mind this one thing – If you don’t believe believe in yourself, you’ll go where the situations or people take you.
So find your calling, pursue it, start building the belief in yourself and keep up the momentum.
6. Say ‘No’ to regrets.
Nothing hurts us more than the regrets.
We know it even then we became lazy in the work we’re supposed to do. Allow me to quote Randy Pausch “It is not the things we do in life that we regret in our deathbed, it is the things we don’t”.
Becoming the best version of yourself requires you to remove all the regrets.
7. Embrace change.
Change is inevitable, if it were not, we would still be toddlers!
So embrace it because we cannot stop it but we can certainly direct it. Direct your change in a positive direction and honestly you would eventually get bored if nothing would ever change.
Embrace the change and let the flow of life flow through you.
8. Remove the fear of failure.
You can really succeed in anything if you’re willing to fail for it.
So many people think that failure is the opposite of success, but actully its not, failure is a part of success. Don’t run from failure instead double your rate of failure, you’ll get success faster.
What do you really fear about?
Fear that you’ll stop believing in yourself after you fail, fear of parents, society or unknown, tackle them by giving yourself a big enough reason to do it instead of them. Keep your mind so focused in the enjoyment of the work that faiure do not even matter to you.
“If I fail more than you, I win” by Seth Godin.
9. Be persistent.
Becoming the best version of yourself requires time.
Nothing worthwhile happens in one day so be persistent. I see many people do not value persistence, they consider it a waste of time but persistence is one of the most important skills you must have to become the best version of yourself.
10. Compete with your earlier self for becoming the best version of yourself.
The real measurement of progress to become the best version of yourself is to analyse yourself, whether you are better than yesterday or not.
Only this can be considered the real measurement of progress because right now there are innumerable people better than you as well as innumerable people worse than you. So who will you choose to measure yourself with?
There’s actually no one except your earlier self.

11. Burst through your fears.
Fears does only one thing and that is to hold you back.
Being the best version of yourself passes through bursting through your fears. Fear is a liar.
If you fear and hold yourself back, you will never be able to achieve all that you are capable of achieving.
Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan says “If you live by your fears, everything that can pass possibly wrong will go wrong”. So burst through your fears and accept the amazing gift on the other side of fear.
12. Have goals for life.
Life is better with goals.
Goals stretches us to our limits and expand them. Goals give us a direction in life so that we don’t wonder around aimlessly.
13. Design your life.
Design each area of your life.
Why? Because a successful and fulfilling life does not happen by chance, it happens by design.
Decide who you’re gonna be, what you’re gonna do and everything else.
Once you start designing your life the way you want it to be, gradually you’ll start becoming the best version of yourself.
14. Don’t fear success.
Yes, you heard it correct!
Many of us fear failure as well as success. So we’re stuck.
The main thing is our subconscious mind has not yet developed to deserve success, so we fear success.
But it can be corrected, success is good, you just need to not let yourself get attached to it. Be the best you can be, make yourself deserving and embrace the success.
Success is crucial and the foundation for everything else in your life.
15. Don’t judge others for becoming the best version of yourself.
I’m sorry but most of us are not Attorney General!
So we must be very cautious before judging others. Many people tend to judge others as if they’ve been appointed for the work.
Don’t do it and save your mental energy and use it to create something.
We judge others because we’ve tied our self worth to others’ weaknesses or differences. But it is unnecessary.
This hinders you in the path of becoming the best version of yourself.
Execution is a very important skill.
You should be able to implement your ideas in the real world. The difference between successful and unsuccessful person is the speed of action.
Apply your ideas right now, not tomorrow, not next week, not next month, not next year but right now.
Be an action taker, a go-getter and execute because just planning won’t learn you anything but execution will make you learn and will also provide you results.
17. Don’t ruminate.
This is also one of the common problems in people.
They’re constantly involved in ruminitive thoughts. Its unnecessary but the unconscious mind doesn’t know it.
Think once and execute for becoming the best version of yourself.
Don’t waste your hours, days, months, years and decades in ruminitive thinking.
18. Learn new things daily.
Learning is growing.
As Sandeep Maheshwari says one who can learn anything can do anything and the one who can do anything can have anything. So don’t underestimate the power of learning.
Learning is fundamental to everything.
When you learn new things daily, it makes new connections in your brain as well as its exciting to learn something new daily.
Be regular in exercising.
Health is a vital aspect of your life. If you ignore it, you can’t do anything optimally let alone becoming the best version of yourself.
It refreshes your mind and body and makes you strong.
It also increases your self confidence to new levels.
20. Practice gratitude for becoming the best version of yourself.
Becoming the best version of yourself is also to make you humble.
Be thankful for whatever you have. As Oprah says- The more you appreciate, the more there is in life to appreciate. This is actually true.
Practice gratitude for long enough and figure it out for yourself.
21. Celebrate along the way.
Reward yourself when you achieve something and accomplish goals.
Success is success no matter how big or small. It will create the momentum to move you forward.
And frankly, becoming the best version of yourself isn’t a destination, its a journey.
So you need to enjoy it.
