10 Tips for Being the Best You Possible

As you may have guessed, I read a lot. I came across some tips that I thought would be helpful to my children as they grow into being their own people. As a teenager it is easy to get caught in the quicksand of having a poor self-image. These tips have proven helpful to my kids and hopefully for yours.

Tip One: Give yourself permission to have dreams and goals in your life, and know that everyone may not agree with you.  If you want to learn how to climb a mountain, go skydiving one day, or spend hours painting just go for it (well, after you follow tips three to seven).

Tip Two: Remember that you own your life and that you have only one life. Life is too short to keep putting things off until next week or next year. Start making plans that will help you fulfill your dreams. When you’re young it seems like time will never end, but that is just an illusion.

Tip Three: Write out your dreams and desires on paper. This will help them feel more real to you. Then go through your list and place them in order. Have the one you want to do first on top.

Tip Four: Start planning out how you will achieve your dream. Do you need to learn a new skill? Take certain lessons? Or you may have to save up the cash for it. Start researching to see what you need to succeed.

Tip Five: Create a plan of action of things that you can do immediately that will help you reach your dream. It can often help to break down larger goals into much smaller ones. This way they become more manageable and easier to attain. Once that’s done — get to work. Planning without action is a waste of time.

Tip Six: Stay motivated and on track with reaching your goal. The keyword to remember is “focus”.

Tip Seven: Stay realistic with your dream. Ensure that your end goal is something that you can actually achieve. There is no point in dreaming of climbing a mountain if you are terrified of heights!

Tip Eight: Be authentic to those who try to stop you in your tracks. Listen to their objections and then counter them with an action plan. Most objections stem from concern for you, so try not to feel attacked. If you map out your steps to reach your goal and can clearly show this to others, objections will become fewer as time goes on.

Tip Nine: While reaching your dreams will help fulfill your life, you don’t want to lose your friends and family over it. Take time to discuss your plans with anyone who is concerned. After all they do have your best interests at heart.

Tip Ten: Ensure that your goal is something you really want. Don’t do anything out of spite just to prove a point to someone. Open up your heart and your feelings and let those tugs pull you in the right direction.

And the last, but not least tip is to remember that the journey to achieve the dream is just as important, if not more, than attaining the goal. We learn so much when we stretch ourselves to reach something that seems unattainable. Never stop learning, never stop striving, never stop loving your life.
