How do you become the person you want to be? Do you want to be generous, do you want to be healthier, do you want to be smarter, do you want to be a better parent, friend or spouse? The good news is that you can be and the simplest way to do this is to behave like the person you want to be.

Imagine what it would look like if you were actually the person you want to be. What kind of behaviors and habits would that person have? What would their day look like? How would people describe them? For example we’ve all heard someone say. ‘Oh she’s so generous,’ or ‘She’s so healthy.’ They say that because there’s a set of behaviors that a person has that are clearly visible.

So, if there’s an image in your head about the person you want to be then find someone that already fits that image and observe what they are doing. It’s often said that success leaves clues and fortunately this applies to all areas of life.

“You become what you want to be, by consistently being what you want to become each day.” – Richard G. Scott
