Over the past week, I embarked on a life-changing journey by enrolling in a course, "Be Your Best Self." Little did I know that this experience would prove to be a transformative ride filled with self-discovery, personal growth and profound realisations. Today, I am excited to share my inspiring journey with you, highlighting the remarkable changes I noticed throughout the week. From where my attention went to how I became more accountable, this course has truly set me on the path to becoming the best version of myself.
Redirecting Attention, Igniting Positive Energy
As I delved into the "Be Your Best Self" course, I encountered the powerful concept that "where attention goes, energy flows." This simple yet profound idea resonated deeply with me, as it made me realise that even with the amount of focus I give to self-care, there was still more attention it deserved and was possible.
Redirecting my attention to being the best version of myself manifested in subtle yet significant ways. I found myself naturally making healthier choices without feeling the pressure to do so. Instead of forcing myself to exercise or eat well, I observed that I was naturally drawn to these activities, which left me feeling more energetic and positive throughout the day. It was astonishing to witness how a simple shift in focus could create a ripple effect of positivity in all aspects of my life.
Embracing Extra Self-Care: A Journey to Healthier Living
One of the most remarkable changes I experienced during the course was an extra level of self-care that I extended towards myself. Through focussing on my mindset, it became evident that I noticed myself adopting healthier habits with ease.
I started paying more attention to my diet, choosing nourishing foods that fueled my body and mind. Incorporating more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains into my meals became a joy rather than a chore. Alongside my improved eating habits, I felt a sudden urge to go for walks and reconnect with nature. These walks not only served as a form of exercise but also nourished other aspects that I don't always get time to and that was listen to podcasts or audiobooks.
Moreover, I became more aware of my excessive phone scrolling habits and took steps to reduce it. The course had taught me the importance of being present in the moment, and I noticed how my constant phone usage was hindering my ability to enjoy life's simple pleasures. As a result, I consciously limited my screen time and felt more connected to the world around me.
Breaking Free from Rigidity and Embracing Imperfection
In my pursuit of being a "good student" and doing the course "right," I unexpectedly discovered how rigid I had become in various aspects of my life. The course encouraged us to be gentle with ourselves and embrace imperfection as a part of the growth process.
As I reflected on my tendencies to strive for perfection, I noticed how this rigidity had affected my relationships, work, and overall wellbeing. I began to challenge my deep rooted beliefs about success and recognised that growth often comes from embracing mistakes and learning from them. This newfound self-compassion allowed me to let go of the unnecessary pressures I had put on myself and open up to new possibilities.
The Power of Accountability: Nurturing Positive Habits
Throughout the "Be Your Best Self" course, I realised the importance of accountability in maintaining positive habits. By being accountable to myself and my personal growth goals, I could prevent old and negative habits from creeping back into my life.
The course provided a supportive community where we could share our progress, setbacks, and insights. This sense of shared accountability kept me motivated and committed to my journey of self-improvement. Whenever I felt tempted to revert to old habits, I reminded myself of the progress I had made and the goals I wanted to achieve.
As I wrap up this transformative week of "Be Your Best Self," I am grateful for the impact it has had on my life. From redirecting my attention to nurturing self-care, breaking free from rigidity to staying accountable, each lesson has been invaluable in shaping my journey of self-discovery and personal growth.
The course has reminded me of the importance of us continually doing the work on ourselves. Whether it is through attending courses or receiving coaching, having some type of accountability structure is so supportive to our personal growth and development.
Remember, life is a continuous journey of growth, and each step we take towards becoming our best selves is a step towards a more fulfilling and purposeful life. Here's to embracing the journey of self-discovery, cherishing every moment, and living life to the fullest. Be your best self, and the world will surely take notice!
