What’s the difference between being yourself and being your best self? All of us have many possible ‘selves'. Some parts of our personalities are active and obvious, but some parts may surface only now and then, and still others may remain hidden almost all the time.
What is your best self like? Can you list the qualities that make your best ‘self’ different from the ordinary, everyday you? You see, becoming aware of these qualities is the key to bringing them under your control. If you are aware of them, you can deliberately set out to make your everyday-self more like your best self.
Using the techniques of affirmation, visualisation and control of your self-talk, it is relatively easy to do. You see, we move toward and become like that which we think about. So, focus your thoughts on those aspects of yourself that you would like to see more of. Do it in a systematic way, over and over again, every day. Soon, you will find that “being yourself” will automatically mean, “being your best self.”
