supporting Best Self, worth it calculators, cavemen, self improvement

Here’s a power question I came up with last week:
“Who do I need to be to support me being my Best Self?”
Men have a “worth it” calculator. it’s rooted in the caveman DNA. Some even go so far as to suggest we’d still be in the caves if women hadn’t been asking for stoves and light and heat and running water.
Is it worth it to spend my energy on the duck when the buffalo will likely be by soon and the whole tribe will be fed for a month?
No. Sit and wait.
Is it worth it to take out the garbage when I’ve got a lawn to tackle after lunch?
No. Sit in resting position while the testosterone builds so all available reserves are online for the lawn mission.
There is a We energy when you are in a relationship.
Your energy, her energy, and the We energy. You feel good in the we. You feel good around she. It’s worth doing the work to make that happen.
There is an upward spiral.
You, being your Best Self, makes her happy. When she is happy that fills you with life and it’s easy to be your Best Self when you’re full of life. You, being full of life makes her happy, and that makes it easy for her to be her Best Self.
The only person who is there for you 24/7 without fail is You.
You know exactly what you need, and how to provide it. That makes you a really great person to have as your own best friend.
Commit to being your Best Friend.
Commit to supporting yourself.
Ask yourself often
“Who do I need to be to support me being my Best Self?”
The self improvement will naturally emerge.
