Have you ever heard the saying ‘Become the best version of you’. But what does that even mean?
To reach that, there are five main areas of our lives that we need to master. We live our lives every day utilising skills from these areas many times in a day, unfortunately our ‘training’ in these fields to date would not have been the most effective.
So what are these five areas of life to master? The first and most important one is:
This is the most important of all, mastering this skill alone can make a huge difference in your life! In fact it would take you most of the way toward mastering the other four areas! If you think about it a little bit you will find that all that we do are based around our emotions. Why do you want to lose weight? As it would make you feel good! Why do you want to be fit and toned? Because it boosts your self esteem, and gives you positive energy! Why do you want to have $1,000,000 because you feel it would make you happy.
Virtually everything we do is to change the way we feel – yet most of us do not know how to do this quickly and effectively. We never had any real training in it, we learnt off other people by watching them. Not only that, but we leave ourselves to be influenced by other people around us.
What we need to learn is take charge of or emotions! And to do that first you need to understand why you do the things you do, what emotions do you experience most often?
Physical Health and Fitness
Is it worth having everything you dreamt of, yet not be healthy? How could you enjoy it all? Will your current lifestyle make you a statistic? This may sounds all too hard right now, however once you set your emotions right around health, and fitness you will find that it actually gives you the energy and vitality to live life to the fullest.
Physical mastery helps you look good, feel good and also feel in control of your life, not to mention UNSTOPABLE! It is an area worth mastering.
Relationships are one of the most important things in our lives, whether romantic, family, business or social. After all you cannot become successful without a support team, and you cannot enjoy your success fully without sharing it with others!
And to master this you need to master the art of creating quality relationships – firstly with yourself, then with others. For this to happen you need to understand your values, and your standards, what you will not stand for.
Once you master this skill you will learn to connect with people and be rewarded with the knowledge that you have made a difference in others’ lives.
Financial Knowledge and Awareness
What I found through my self development journey is that finances are rarely discussed. Not how much one earns but more so your beliefs around money. If you discover the messages you received growing up you will more than likely find that it created a lack mentality that you were not even aware of!
Once you learn your thoughts, feelings, attitudes and beliefs about money you can start building a whole new world, setting goals and shape your dreams toward achieving abundance.
Time and Patience
Masterpieces take time. But how often have you taken the time for yourself? How often have you taken time for short term evaluations to create your long term vision?
I am not talking about time management through which you can tick off your to do list. I am talking about taking the time to wait to reach full fruition of your ideas rather than reaching for instant gratification?
Once you have mastered time you will understand how people overestimate what they can achieve in a year, and under estimate what they can achieve in a decade!
Now that you know what you are looking at, evaluate your current status. What is your understanding of the five main areas of your life? Are you in charge or do your emotions hijack you? Are you fit and healthy or could do better? Do you have a lack mentality or is your life filled with abundance already?
How to tune up your life
To help you get better in any of these areas you need to start setting goals. But not just any goals! I mean how many time have you said you want to lose weight, get the right partner, make a million bucks and have more time. Those are not goals they are simply wishful thinking!
What you need is goals that are powerful and internally driven so that you are compelled to achieve them no matter what!
