- "Cherish your visions; cherish your ideals; cherish the music that stirs in your heart, the beauty that forms in your mind, the loveliness that drapes your purest thoughts, for out of them will grow all delightful conditions, all, heavenly environment; of these, if you but remain true to them, your world will at last be built."
Hello, here at Empty Whole we're determined to help you realize your full potential and be the best young woman you can be.
A key differentiator of the Empty Whole brand is our determination to make you a more complete and sophisticated individual.
All of us at Empty Whole want you to be your best you and enjoy your life!
So, let's get right into it.
How do you become the best version of yourself?
Here are 10 ways you can become your best you:
1. Be Confident
Smile, stand tall, and take control of your reality. Confidence comes from within. Some people are confident, and some can't seem figure out how to feel good about themselves but confidence doesn't have to be innate - it can be learned.
If you have a hard time expressing your confidence, there are many ways to overcome it - but it requires practice.
Tips for becoming more confident include but are not limited to:
Eating a healthy diet and rejecting unhealthy foods/drinks
Positive thinking and affirmations (talk nicely to yourself, compliment yourself)
Learn, learn, learn
Don't compare yourself to others (do not waste your limited time in life worrying about anybody or comparing yourself to them, just work to be your best you).
Constantly tell yourself that you already are who you want to be, that you have what you desire, and with time, practice, and persistence you will see these things materialize. (without effort, practice, and persistence - you will not realize your power)
Working on your confidence and belief in yourself will materialize into a fully confident personality. When you become confident and truly believe in yourself and your direction - so much in your life will improve.
A confident personality will help you look better, feel better, do more, believe in the decisions you make and your power to make them, and compound to help you enjoy every day to the fullest.
If you are already confident in yourself, that's marvelous, now just be good to others and focus on doing what you enjoy. If you lack confidence, improve yourself with these extra tips.
To become completely confident takes time but it will be well worth the return on your investment and is essential to becoming a happy and successful person.
Know that you can do and be anything which you can imagine and work for.
Tell yourself that you are great and strong and envision who you want to be and that is who you will become. Meanwhile, let nobody limit you or instill their negativity.
Anybody who's successful had to start here - they had to believe that they could do what they want, they had to begin with the self-confidence and courage.
Believe that you are confident, and you will be confident.
You don't have to be perfect, you just have to be brave.
2. Think Positively
- IF YOU ONLY GET ONE THING FROM THIS ENTRY LET IT BE YOUR UNDERSTANDING OF THIS: WHAT YOU THINK YOU WILL BECOME.
You are literally what you think. And your future will become what you passionately think about the most.
The body will follow what the mind believes and suggests to itself.
We all think, but we all think differently - the difference is some think negatively about themselves and others think positively and with purpose.
Negative thinking should not be acceptable. Your thoughts will come to life. We cannot stress the importance of thinking positively and what we've termed: being optimistic by default™.
Everything you say to yourself matters.
What you think and how you think about yourself will result in you becoming just that.
If you speak poorly to yourself, tell yourself you are ugly, that there are things you cannot do, and other limiting beliefs, then you will remain that way and live a poor, unhappy life.
You get one life! Why would you want to live unhappily?
One suggestion we have to learn more about the influence your thoughts have on your life is to check out the recommend books list that the team at Empty Whole curates to help you learn. The list includes books such as:
What to Say When you Talk to Yourself
The Strangest Secret
The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck
The Power of Positive Thinking
- As a Man Thinketh
Any of these books and others which are similar will give you the understanding of your mind you need to manifest the future you want.
Understand the power of your mind, reject negative thoughts, passionately think positively, and with time you'll love yourself and work to see your dreams come true.
3. Believe strongly in Yourself and Never Give Up
- No matter how hard things get in life (and it will get hard (smh)), keep pushing forward and persevering. You will reach the light at the end of the tunnel or you will die trying.
You are your own hero, you are your own competition, you know what you want, you know what is required to earn it, and I know you are capable of achieving whatever you put your efforts toward.
"The human will, that force unseen,
The offspring of a deathless soul,
Can hew the way to any goal,
Though walls of granite intervene."
This is your chance to get what you want. Will you take advantage of your life and enjoy working toward what you want or waste it and let your life be directed by others?
4. Dress fashionably and Express Yourself
- For so many reasons you should enjoy dressing fabulously! Spend the extra time to look good every day. Use your wardrobe as a persona of its own, craft it the way you like and show it to the world. You are a beautiful display of art and dressing fashionably will confirm that, while helping you look, feel, and live better!
If you dress well or recently began to, you can attest to the difference in your confidence when you love how you look and when you don't.
Shop your favorite stores and visit our collections for simple essentials that your wallet will love and keep your wardrobe up to date.
5. Commit to learning and reading
- Knowledge is power. Make reading a habit, start here if you need a place to begin.
The team at Empty Whole is aware of the importance of learning and reading.
For some reason there are many people who don't like to read - perhaps it's uninteresting to you.
We can attest that reading the right books can literally change your mind and change your life - which is what we want to happen and why we suggest you read more often.
With the books recommended by the team at Empty Whole you will learn about things you didn't even know existed which will grant you the wisdom and power to take control of your attitude, your mind, and your life.
We guarantee that reading the right books will make your life so much better and allow you to harness intelligence and power you never knew you had or strengthen it if you do.
Stay committed to learning and reading and you will grow into a smarter, more sophisticated individual
6. Eat healthy foods every day and avoid / limit sugary, processed, unhealthy foods
- Commit to a healthier diet! For yourself, for your loved ones, and so you could live a long life with which you could accomplish all the things you can dream up. Healthy eating is so important for many reasons and it's even all that challenging.
Benefits of healthy eating:
A fit body!!
Glowing, more flawless skin
More energy and less fatigue
Less risk for illness and diseases related to poor health (of which there are many)
A mind that will function much better every day
You will feel much better day in and day out
We've listed why you should eat healthy foods to look and feel better and there are even more benefits. Eating unhealthy foods has no beneficial purpose, so learn to avoid them for your health's sake.
Food and drinks that are bad for us may taste good but do us harm AND don't help us.
Once you understand the affects of the food you eat, you will start to reject unhealthy foods (now it isn't about taste, it's about function) and gladly consume healthier foods and drinks.
7. Commit to consistent exercise to be healthy, stay fit, and look good!
- Along with a healthy diet make sure you get in enough physical activity.
Get into a workout regime, go for a run, ride a bike, or play an active sport.
Your body will thank you, in the long run. Exercise is extremely good for you; if you don't know, now you know.
To be the best version of yourself a healthy diet and consistent exercise are key.
If you don't want to be the best version of yourself then ignore this information, eat unhealthy foods, and don't workout - you likely won't be feeling good about yourself.
8. Don’t worry about other people’s bullsh*t, find what you enjoy and do you
- At the end of the day stick to what you're true to and do not waiver.
So often in life - pretty much daily - everyone will want to share their opinions with you, they will try to direct your life, they will try to judge and look down upon you, they'll criticize your decisions and just annoy the sh*t out of you.
These people obviously haven't read any of Empty Whole's blogs so you should share a blog with them and not let what they say bother you or take you off your course.
At the end of the day listen to yourself and your intuition.
If you aren't feeling good about yourself and want help with your decisions we recommend talking to your parents, other people who care for you, and/or people you want to be like - or ask me in the comments below!
To be your best you, trust yourself, reject others' opinions that don't help you, and continue to improve daily.
9. Work smart and hard to make money doing what you like and are good at
- Money is a factor in our world, whether you like it or not. So bust your ass and work hard. Do what you love, do it with a flaming passion, and do it to be the best. Constantly learn, work hard, save money, and invest! Do not be afraid to go for what you want.
Understand this: you live this life once - you can live it worrying or happily, you can work a job you hate or one you like, you can fight through obstacles to achieve your dreams or you can stay complacent and frustrated somewhere you don't want to be.
What do you think Empty Whole would suggest?
Haha, that's right! Make smart decisions and go fight every day for what you want out of this life.
"Wait, what if I don't know what I want?"
Easy, if you don't know what you want start here: eat healthy, commit to reading/learning/studying, exercise regularly, and try a lot of things.
When you try a bunch of new things you will enjoy some and not enjoy others. Take note of what you enjoy doing, keep doing what you enjoy, then of those things decide what you are good and and want to work every day to be your best at.
That brings us to the next point which still requires it's own discussion.
10. Be sure to make good decisions and try new things often
- You get one life to live. Experience things! Don't pass on things you might regret later on, you may never get the chance again!
Life is nothing but a compilation of our experiences. Everything that you remember about your past involves individual or a combination of experiences - you went somewhere/did something/met someone - and the same for your future.
Trying new things is important because these things you try will become the sum of your life's experiences, you will learn what you enjoy and what you don't, you will meet new friends, and you will have more fun.
When we talk about doing new things we have to talk about being smart and making good decisions.
Recently someone in the city that I live in was out with a bunch of friends, alcohol may have been a factor, but they thought it would be interesting to challenge an oncoming train and run past the tracks before the train passes them. Tragically, one of the individuals tripped, was hit by the train, and passed away as a result - he was just 22.
Now I know we all won't jump in front of oncoming trains and traffic - none of you should - but understand your decisions will have consequences.
Make smart decisions, not poor ones and do things with a clear, beneficial purpose.
Smile, be happy, spread love.
Get in shape and stay in shape by eating healthy and exercising regularly. You're sure to look, feel, and live better.
Work hard and keep learning. Be confident, believe in yourself, know what you want, and work hard to get what you want.
Try new things, be safe, and enjoy your life!
