How To Become The Best Version Of Yourself?

You are here in this world for three main reasons. The first one is to experience as many different things as possible and enjoy life to the full. The second one is to create, contribute, share, and leave a positive legacy behind.

And the third reason why you’re here on this planet is to improve, evolve, grow and become the best version of yourself.

 

 

Another day, another blog post and another story which might trail down to motivate you in some way or the other.

Before sleeping and after waking up, do ask this question to yourself that ‘what kind of person do you want to be?’

I mean everybody wants to be rich, wants to have a good lifestyle and most importantly ‘have it all’.

With time, I have noticed three ugly qualities that resist a human to become his/her best version and that is –

  • Greed
  • Vanity
  • Addiction

 

  • Having It All –

I have actually come across people who have a tendency of equating their success with ‘having it all’, but this can end up a slippery slope. The appetite for success develops into greed.

 

 

I have met many bloggers and influencers who were unhappy, negative people. It surprised me because It looked like they had it all. But deep down they hadn’t done the work of figuring out what kind of person they wanted to be.

Let me ask you the same question again, What kind of person do you want to be? 

  • Vanity –

Living in a culture of entertainment and celebrities, a lot of people succumb to vanity. I mean we all want to look good, isn’t it?

 

 

Recently, I was just passing from a gym and saw a man with a good built, shaved legs and ripped. I don’t know but after having all that which we humans consider as ‘perfect’, I found that man to be very unhappy. You know what the problem is? We spend an enormous amount of time, energy and money in improving our looks and developing our character.

Becoming the best version of yourself is far away from just sculpted muscles, waxed chests and whitened teeth. It requires intellectual enrichment, empathy, sacrifice for others and the most important quality – Kindness!

 

  • All things in Moderation –

 

 

Perhaps, more than vanity and greed, addiction account for the grief in most people lives. The problem is that we like some things way too much. We pursue them at all costs and become addicted.

Living in a country like India where addictions are just accounted for drinking alcohol and sexual misbehaviour, there are so many other addictions out there which are neglected –  Social media addiction, food addiction, addiction to drama, even healthy pursuits like fitness can become a destructive addiction.

 

 

Addictions can be treated. Simply ask yourself what kind of person you want to be? The answer will come to you and then what? Begin the process right away. You can always make changes and become the best version.

No matter who you’re, no matter what you did, no matter where you’ve come from, you can always change and become a better version of yourself!


That’s all for today. You can write me down on arpitpahwa4@gmail.com or can easily connect with me on any of my social handles given in the right-hand sidebar.

Thank you for stopping by until the end.

Don’t forget to add value to others as they’ll come back when the time comes.

Have a great week, ahead!

See you in the next one!

Inner Peace Is The New Success!

 Happiness is the new rich. Inner peace is a new success. Health is a new wealth. Kindness is the new cool!

 

Unflappable? That is such a wonderfully descriptive word. A person is said to be unflappable if he/she potentially has or shows calmness in a situation of crisis. I have known some truly unflappable people. They discharge an inner calmness even in the hardest circumstances. They are the ones who are fully present with everyone, gentle and possess a positive attitude towards life.

 

 

So many of us exist in a cloud of internal and external chaos.

With such an over-scheduled and preoccupied lifestyle, it is difficult to relax and enjoy life with all of the distractions and cold phases.

 

What is meant by Inner Peace?

 

 

Inner peace is more about being than doing. It’s all about learning to correct and not struggling against. It’s about being focused in the present and not dwelling in the chapters of the past or the dreams of the future. The rewards of inner peace are numerous. It all includes mental and physical well being of an individual, self-confidence and more intense and more joyful experience.

 

How to attain Inner Peace?

 

 

  • Have nothing unresolved –

Resolving your professional and personal matters are necessary as it withdraws energy gets you numb and broken. It’s better to make short-term schedules and keep the things sorted.

 

  • Surrender and accept what it is –

Accepting your failures are much more important than enjoying your success. The one who surrenders and accepts will never make the same mistake again. Rather than resisting and fighting, stop struggling. Resisting blocks energy and creativity.

 

  • Take full responsibility for how you react to others –

You choose your behaviour and you decide what you want to be in all circumstances. Plan for being a calm and unflappable person.

 

  • Become aware of and sensitive to feelings rather than ignoring them –

These feelings can turn out to be a big gut vibes in your day to day and even in your business. Never ignore these feelings as it might turn your struggle into the fortune. Be aware of what’s running inside your head. Become aware of your internal environment.

 

  • Know your higher self –

The only person who knows what you’re capable of doing, capable of producing is just you. Know your goals, understand them, implement what’s necessary at the right time and at the right moment.

 

  • Prioritize peace ahead of performance –

Setting up our priority list is what we all have been doing after puberty but how about keeping ‘peace’ in the first place? Try and find out yourself!

 

How can Inner Peace lead us to a successful life?

 

 

We all are running in the quest for a happy life which is full of freedom and security. The search for happiness and a successful life is one of the most common goals to everyone. Life is full of challenges. For an instance, rather than thinking of them as a reason to give up just think of them as a source of knowledge and experience. Failures teach us more than what success could. With experience comes wisdom, more positivity towards achieving something, stability and productivity automatically enhances.

With inner peace comes Introspection, self-control and self-improvement. Introspection is having a knowledge of your own thoughts and emotions. Introspection is like a lantern, it might provide light, but it doesn’t guarantee to make you see the things.

There are no limits. All you have to keep in mind is to control your mind from all the negativity trying to attack you.

Self-Improvement is what means to build yourself, to train your mind and improve and nourish your character and attitude towards living.

With a peaceful mind, the success rate automatically doubles.
