BECOME THE BEST VERSION OF YOURSELF
About Lesson

The best version of yourself is being true to yourself, but what does this mean? It is sometimes easier to explain something by identifying what it isn’t. That said, here’s a list of what is not being the best version of yourself:

  • Being true to yourself is not about pleasing others;
  • Being true to yourself is not about hurting others;
  • Being true to yourself is not about doing things you dislike;
  • Being true to yourself is not about forcing yourself to do something;
  • Being true to yourself is not about being hard on yourself;
  • Being true to yourself is not about judging others and comparing yourself;
  • Being true to yourself is not about being a victim of your surroundings;
  • Being true to yourself is not about acting in a way that will attract more fans on social

Being true to yourself means that you behave and communicate in complete integrity with your belief, values, and, most of all, with what feels right in your heart. When there is an alignment with your inner self (emotions, states, and desires) and outer self (behaviors, communication, and relationships), you are the best version of yourself.

Assessing Yourself

Have you ever felt like your behavior and the way that you held yourself varied depending on who is around you and where you are?

We tend to play a different role when we are with individuals that we want to please or want to make sure that they like us. For example, you might behave in a completely different way if you are at work or with people you just met and want to be friends with them. We tend to be ourselves when we are at home or with childhood friends. That is when we let our guards down and become more vulnerable and less worried about how others might perceive us.

The following questions will help you identify which area of your life you are the best version of yourself. The answer is yes or no, pick the answer the closest to how you feel (mostly yes or mostly no).

The more “yes” you have, the easier it is for you to be yourself. The goal is to be your true self in all spheres of your life. Based on that quick survey, which area of your life has more “NO”? Keep that in mind; we hope that by the end of reading this book, you are more comfortable being yourself in that area of your life.
