Do You Want to Become the Best You?
People who are the best have the confidence to want to become the best in the first place. So if you don’t have that confidence, maybe you’ve been told a lie that we’ve been told over and over again.
Step #1: Know Your Purpose
Let’s dive into how you can begin to find your purpose. Think of what you are putting most of your effort into right now. For most people, that thing is their job. In fact, we spend an average of over 13 years of our life working. So, say after… 5, 10, 15 years of doing your job over and over again, you finally become the BEST at what you’re doing.
Step #2: Embrace Fear of Failure
The next step is to realize you might not make it. Yup, really. Fear of failure is common for those who want to be the best version of themselves. And that’s a good thing. Asking… “What if I can’t make it?” “What if I waste my time?” “What if I fail?”
Step #3: Control Your Mind
Mind wandering is why some people’s “counting pennies” can be hell on earth, while for others this can be the next best thing to sliced cheese. When we mind wander, we aimlessly pursue our goals and fail to question exactly how far we are going or what is stopping us from becoming our best selves.
Step #4: Harness Your Systems
So how do we harness the power of System 2 to make our goals a reality? Well, it might start with a little bit of luck… Remember: the more you think is possible… the more that becomes possible.
Step #5: Expect Luck
People who believe in a stable form of luck believe that we are either lucky or unlucky. People who believe in a fleeting type of luck believe that luck comes and goes, and is often unpredictable.
