You can upgrade your computer, your smart phone, your car or get a job promotion. In fact you can upgrade about any material thing you own. How would you upgrade yourself?
Your upgrade has to be based in reality, so no growing wings nor being able to breathe unassisted under water. The upgrades you choose for yourself have to be specific, measurable and attainable. They could be improvement of your habits and lifestyle, a skill, or your character. All-in-all your upgrades are about being a better you, kinder, healthier, more productive with fewer problems, less fears, anxieties, neurosis.
One way to start is to pick someone you admire. This could be someone you know personally, but it could also be a imaginary person with all the traits, virtues and attributes you look up to. Ask yourself the following questions:
- How would this person live?
- How would this person deal with the problems I face?
- How would this person keep their focus amid all of life’s chaos?
- Would they have a schedule they would keep to?
- What would be the healthy habits they would practice?
The more clearly you can imagine this ideal person dealing well with your problems the faster you can begin practicing these changes.
Make a list of all the upgrades you want to make for your life. What are they for you? Quit smoking? Exercise? Meditate? Get up earlier?
Should the ideal behavior be far from your current situation, start small. Don’t overwhelm yourself by trying to make a complete overhaul of your life. Pick one thing to focus on. Celebrate your successes and ask what you learned from every time you fell short. There’s no failure, only feedback.
Most people get caught in the trap of wanting to upgrade too much too quickly. Instead think of upgrading yourself as a process, not an end in itself. Upgrading your life is a journey, not a destination, a marathon, not a sprint. For this reason it’s important to give yourself some grace and forgiveness. Take time often to pause, regroup and reevaluate your progress. Always remembering that small steps in the right direction are still going right.
