Why this matters

We all want to be our ideal self. Identifying who we ideally want to be is an important first step. When we choose thoughts, words, behaviours and actions that align with our version of our ideal selves, we begin to live our lives in a way that helps us reach our goal.

We can’t be our ideal self all the time. But, when we recognize what our best self is, we can intentionally strive towards it.
