Summary:

There are three things that are fundamental to living your best life – and these three things are about you.

As Tom Bilyeu at Impact Theory says, you need to “love, believe in and appreciate yourself.” And here’s how to do that.

1. Understand and repeat to yourself that “humans are designed to learn and grown.” If one human has proved something possible, get it in your mind that you are capable of this, too. Focus and commit to growing, practicing and becoming better. In fact, in the last 20 years or so, scientists discovered that our brains can change and our potential is not limited by our genetics.

2. Earn credibility with yourself. Trust in yourself that you will follow-through on the commitment to growth you’re making. Start small, and commit to doing something to grow every day. This will allow you to believe in yourself more.

3. Practice gratitude. You’ll see things in a better light throughout the day, appreciate them more and understand there is good in your life. Self-deprecation, victim-mindset and feeling sorry for yourself won’t dominate your thinking

Hey, what’s up guys, Steve Arnold here with Best Life Global, and today I wanna talk to you about something that is fundamental to living your best life. You need to learn to love, believe in, and appreciate yourself, and I actually have three tips for you today that I got from Tom Bilyeu of Impact Theory, the email came across this morning, and thought, hey this is awesome, I’m gonna share it with my people.

So, here we go.

First of all, you need to understand and repeat to yourself that humans are designed to learn and grow. Now, this is really really really important, because you’re human, therefore, you have the ability to pretty much be and do whatever you want to in life, as long as another human has at least even proved it possible, then you know for sure that you can do it, because you are a human. You just need to focus and commit to growing and practicing and doing what you need to do to become better.

Me personally, I used to be a software engineer, and that was very analytical. And I’d sit in my cube all day and I would code, and pretty much not talk to anybody for hours at a time. And the thought of me becoming a coach, and a personal development speaker and trainer just felt so outside of the realm of what I thought was possible.

And a big thing that helped me to kinda get over that, is I read this book called “The Power of Neuroplasticity,” and that’s when I learned that our brains will actually rewire themselves to make us better at certain things, and we can actually totally change ourselves around by practicing certain behaviors. And our brains will actually change, and this is actually a revelation that I believe they discovered in the last 20 years or so. They used to think that our brains were fixed at birth, and we pretty much were limited in our potential based on our genetics. Which, we have found now that is totally incorrect. If you ever have doubts in yourself, just remember you are human, and you are wired to learn and grow.

Alright, the second tip, is you need to earn credibility with yourself. What I mean by that, is you need to start trusting in yourself that the commitments that you make to yourself you will actually follow through on.

So, I’d say start with something small and do it every single day. Commit to it, and just do
it, and do it, and do it, and as you do that, your identity will start changing, you’ll start feeling like you’re the type of person who can commit to things and keep those commitments and you’ll start to believe in yourself more. So that combined with the first tip, it’s like, you become almost unstoppable. ‘Cause if you believe that you can keep these commitments, then you just have to make the right commitments to practice that will help you learn and grow, which is pretty awesome.

Okay, the third one, and this is really about appreciating yourself, and that’s to practice gratitude. It’s amazing because once you start to practice gratitude on purpose, you’ll start to see things in a better light throughout your day, you’ll start to see things from the lens of appreciating them, and understanding that there are really good things in your life, as opposed to always seeing things through a negative lens. So your daily practice of gratitude will actually help you not just during that moment of practicing gratitude, it will help you become more grateful throughout the day, which will ultimately make you happier, and make you appreciate yourself.

You don’t wanna get stuck in the loop of always self-deprecating, and feeling sorry for yourself, or feeling victimized, you wanna think about all the good things in your life because that will make you happier. It’ll lead to a higher quality of life, and it will ultimately lead to you living your best life.

That’s all I’ve got for today, thank you so much for listening, I really appreciate you guys, have a great day.
