Have you ever thought about changing yourself? Your perspective towards life ?The way you work on things?
When these kind of questions starts to pop up in your mind , that's when you want to become 2.0 version of yourself.
The version where you’re more successful, doing what you love and existing as an all-around happier person.
These feelings about change develop when one is not happy with his/her current version or the circumstances leading to difficult situations arise.
This sort of attitude towards change signifies underlying unfavorable perception of Self, general feelings of being unworthy and unlovable.
"When i accept myself as i am , then i can change."
The above statement is all about accepting the way you are first , and then changing yourselves into how you want to be.
Some people may find this concept of creating another version of yourself contradictory to 'Self Love' or 'Self Acceptance' , but it's not , self love is important but only remains relevant till we are really love the way we are , not when we are unsatisfied with ourselves.
Also creating 2.0 version is about becoming better than we are at present , when we really are satisfied with the changes inculcated in ourselves!
It is the name of the change game by not trying to become fundamentally different people but trying to become most ourselves.
Becoming 2.0 version
Self-defeating life attitude tends to create a vicious cycle of holding onto negative opinions and narratives.Having “This is just who I am, there’s no escaping it.” attitude never lets us change for good and those unhealthy, destructive behaviors further reinforce the negative self-image.
~Start from beginning
Becoming version 2.0 of ourselves means recognizing that version 1.0 has a lot to offer and starting from there, starting from seeing all the good qualities and deciding to spend our time and energy developing them.
So while you may not be ready to apply to that new development job at a big MNC or an exciting VC-backed startup quite yet, that doesn’t mean that you won’t be in a position to do so in time. Remember that it’s okay to start from the beginning. Start working on your craft and make sure that you’re leveling up every step of the way as everyone has to start from somewhere.
~Time doesn't matter much
When you're reluctant on becoming better, time doesn't tend to matter much as positive growth takes time , becoming better should be the goal. In life,if you constantly stop to count the hours, it’s going to make it lot tougher for you to get where you need to go.
Remember that the vision you have created for yourself is solely your vision of what or where you want to be and not anyone else's!
Whatever you want to be, remember that you are in the driver’s seat of your own life. Don’t spend any time or energy living up to what someone else thinks you should be. You need to be happy with the goal that you’re trying to achieve.
~ Stop looking for miracles
In today's competitive world , no one is going to get your things done , everyone is responsible for their own actions.
Often, people spend a ton of time looking for the secret trick that will give them a head start, only to realize that it doesn’t exist.There is no shortcut to Version 2.0 of your life as it’s going to take a lot of efforts and time.
~Help others too
When you are on your journey to become 2.0 of yourself , remember , lot of other people are too trying to become better.Help them in anyway you can ,Pay it forward. Doing so will keep you motivated on your own path to 2.0, and you’ll find that the lasting connections that you build by helping out others will greatly benefit you in every aspect of your career.
With this , i end my thoughts on being 2.0 version of yourselves!
Not everyone feels like changing the way they are , but for those who actually want to , remember that taking first step towards becoming better is what matters the most ,you may feel sometimes that there are endless hurdles in your path, but trust me , everything becomes worth once you become what you really want!
