This article is packed with 3 actionable but simple steps to create a new you to discover the side of life that works for you, so how do you get started?
Let’s get started.
What is the main idea behind creating a new you?
The journey to creating a new you may seem like a complicated idea, but it is not. You can recreate yourself by setting small but powerful goals, achieve them, and stay committed. Here are the three steps you need to take to anew you.
Step 1: Set your goal
Creating a new, you can be narrowed down to what you want out of your old life and what do you need in your new life.
Before you start setting huge goals, you first need to where you stand now. Next, you will need to measure your current level of accomplishments, physically, mentally, and emotionally. What do you already have? Are there areas of your life you currently find delight in more than others? Is there anything holding you back or causing you to regress at the moment? These questions and more are required to identify where you are currently correctly.
After identifying where you are, you can then move on to the realm of what you want to be. By already knowing what you are, you will uncover what you are not then you would need to decide on what you are keeping in your current self and what needs to be changed. Here is where goals come in. You would need to determine for yourself what you want to be. Set a specific purpose in an area of your life.
Step 2: Find ways to achieve that goal.
It is easy to set goals. All it requires is a little imagination and determination. But the achievement of those goals lies not just in the setting. Achieving the plans you set to lie in exercising discipline and power and intentionality is especially true when creating a new you. In developing your goal stage, you already have an idea of your current state. So, while the excitement of creating a new you may rush at you, you must be realistic about what goals you can achieve now. That is the only way you can get the willpower to get them done. Now, this is not to say to avoid big goals. Instead, when your goals are more significant than your current skill set, break them down into smaller goals that you can achieve daily. Consistency is quite underrated, but there is much to gain from taking on small plans and accomplishing them consistently rather than getting stuck on an enormous goal.

When a block of ice is dropped on a table, it doesn’t instantly turn to water, and it loses its solidity with each increase in temperature. If you are not very observant, you might not see that the ice reduces in size until the glaze is nothing but a pond of water. What does it mean? This means while in the beginning, it seems like your efforts are wasted, you need to stay committed to the goals you have set. It would be best to stick to the routine of habits you have decided to follow to become the person you want to become. What should you do when you miss a day? You do not beat yourself up about it; you show up the next day and smash your goals like a pro.
What do I want you to take away from all these? First, you can identify where you are now, what is working, and what is not. Then, you recognize where you may want to be and decide by setting goals. Next up, you need to find ways to achieve these goals by ensuring they can achieve goals now, not later. Lastly, you have to stay committed to the plans.
I am not going to lie and tell you that even after taking these steps, the journey to creating a new you is going to be easy. It is not. Change is and always will be difficult. But if you can affect the change, you are going to be rewarded with a new you.
