Ideal self sounds like somebody’s marketing plan. I like the one off the shelf.
It might be. Let me put it this way: what would you like to improve about yourself?
Being a better writer.
Make a conscious decision to act upon that idea of creating your “perfect self”
Yes. And stick to that decision.
Get over the fear that I can’t ever get there.
How do you believe that someone can get over that fear and move forward despite the fact that he/she might not get there?
I wish I knew…
Do you know people that managed to do it?
I believe I do. I am in awe of them.
Is there a way you could try to learn from them how they managed to do it?
Ideal for who? For society? I’ll never be what the rest of the world is, the only way I could do that is by stripping away everything that makes me special and unique and I like my quirks. I personally think I’m already ideal. Does that mean I’m smarter or prettier than everyone else? No, it just means I accept who I am and if this is all I will ever be I’m fine with it because I know I don’t need to do anything to be good enough. We are all good enough, it’s our truth and birthright, but society lies to us and makes us feel bad so they can sell make-up, self help books, booze and cheeseburgers so we can drown our sorrows in.
Ideal for you. Trying to get better has nothing to do with accepting who you are.
I don’t need to be better.
It just totally depends on the Idea of “ideal” self
Ideal for you.
For me an ideal person is someone who is open to exceptions and has guts to take every criticism positively
How close are you to be such a person? If you want to, obviously.
To enough extent I want myself to be (knowing my patience and capacity level)
To me an ideal self is someone who excepts that no one is perfect and focuses on the positives in people instead of the negatives. To become that person I must first get rid of negative thinking! 🙂
That sounds like a plan! What do you believe it would be the first step to get rid of negative thinking?
By focusing on the positives
First step? Leaving that comfort zone which is always discussing with my focused self!
I love to optimize myself. I am literally struggling with the “old comfort” and the grown personality of myself which does not want to discuss anymore. No compromises. It’s all about letting things go which stops you from living that life which you are meant to be.
Leaving the comfort zone is so f*ckin’ hard, but doable.
In general: i need to stop referring and introducing myself as ‘nothing’
In writing: decide in which language i’d like to write (I guess that’s before even getting into some kind of writing coarse that doesn’t exists in my town…)
What would you like that “nothing” to be replaced with?
Don’t know yet 🤔
I wish I knew the answer to this question. So maybe the first step is to figure out the answer.
I guess that would be the first step. 🙂
Accept that I have just one body and one life (religious beliefs aside). I say this because we’re multiple (possibly dissociative idenitty disorder) and would often think that we could each move our own ways, but we can’t. As such, we need to accept that we need to cooperate.
I believe you need to learn how to cooperate.
I’m an idealist
That’s great! How is this manifesting for you?
Great, and wonderful too
I think it’s really important to MAKE time for yourself and doing the things that make you happy. I feel this is a great way to connect with yourself and just be in the present moment to create your ideal, happy self.
That is very true!
I’m working on doing noting at all. In the purest sense of the term.
How much energy do you consume doing this work?
As little as possible; or to put it another way, when it stops being enjoyable then I’ve used too much energy.
Maybe actually learning about myself. Knowing about my true self before actually taking a step to create a new version of me.
That’s the only way to create a new version of you.
Make a decision to make the change necessary, and that put that change into practice until it becomes a part of who I am. As I live in Portugal now, for me it will be learning the Portuguese language.
Awesome! How come you moved to Portugal?
I knew a lot of people in Portugal through a church connection. My friend invited me with a music idea, we are working on this. 😁
First step according to me is being persistent and stubborn! Stick to it with razor sharp focus that even God gets impressed seeing your dedication!!!
Great first step! 😀
To improve my self-esteem! I may need to lose weight to accomplish that – which is sad. Indirectly, my weight makes me feel incompetent at work.
What plan do you have to lose weight if you think that would help you?
I’m going to start changing the way I eat and taking the kiddo for more stroller rides around the neighborhood.
That sounds like a great plan!
Master positivity and the mental Strength
That would be awesome!
Yea. 😃 whats Yours?
My first step is to finish the book I’m working at before the deadline I set.
Wow! Nice.. what is it about?! 😃
It’s about how our mindset is affecting our bodies and some ways that might help with this.
1st copy mine okay? I wanna read that. Which country are you from?
I’m from Romania. My plan is to publish it on Amazon as an ebook and maybe paperback. We’ll see how it goes. I’ve wrote ¼ of the content so far.
That’s really good! 😃 Keep going writer!
