What does being your best entail? What do your thoughts have to do with your capabilities? How do your capabilities have an impact on your future? All of these questions are ones we have to ask ourselves at some point in our lives. But can I tell you the good news? You don’t have to go to someone else for the answers!
The answers are already within you, all you have to do is go on a journey…to you.
In order to get to the bottom of being your best, the ideal way to do it is to answer these questions in reverse order. So let’s begin with this one…
How do your capabilities have an impact on your future?
It is very simple if you know how wildly capable you are at having an amazing future. Whatever that type of future looks like for you, you can truly be your best. So not only will you be your best, but you will also do your best at whatever you put your mind, will, and body to do!
If you don’t know how capable you are, this often leads to confusion, blindly accepting everyone else’s perspective of you, or even worse…trying to be like someone else. When you know how awesome you are, you understand the power of being yourself and the capabilities you have.
What do your thoughts have to do with your capabilities?
There is a famous saying “Your thoughts become your words, your words become your actions…” by Gandhi. This powerful statement is proven in any and every situation and scenario. From major life decisions like investing in your future, down to what you wanted for a meal today. You thought of what you wanted to eat, you consulted your finances to see if you can afford what you wanted. As a result, you make the decision from there whether or not that desire will be fulfilled. So imagine for a second if you were so in-tuned with your thoughts, you know and love yourself, you know how to encourage yourself, and narrow down what capabilities you have? Imagine the possibilities you would be able to see! It all begins with your thoughts, and thoughts eventually lead to actions.
And last but certainly not least…
What does being your best entail?
I’m happy to say the answer to this is also very simple, it involves knowing yourself. Being your best calls for knowing who you are, and what gifts and talents you have because when you understand that, you can share those things with the world. Being your best is also believing that it is possible to use what you have to help others achieve a better life somehow and understanding you have a vision, and your thoughts capabilities and actions with the right mindset can lead to you being your best making your unique impact and dare I say, your greatness!
It all begins with finding you and getting to know you!
