Epigraph

For the state of things to change for the better,
You must first change yourself for the better;
For the state of things to improve even more,
You must always be improving yourself even more!

Preface

Blind spots in our thinking, a lack of emotional intelligence or poor social skills- various problems, like these, admittedly drive away many opportunities. At times, one wonders whether these are foregone conclusions- or are they a result of inability and throwing in the towel way too early?

Emotions have an immense impact on our mood and performance, and our attitude and manner of dealing with things and people determine if opportunities come our way. Problems stem from our thoughts, and affect our behaviour. Outstanding social skills allow you to take to interpersonal relationships like a duck to water. This book will help you learn more about yourself- how to adjust your emotions and way of thinking, how to improve your communication skills, how to build the best social and romantic relationships, and how to enrich and cultivate your manner and inner substance. If you are determined to be a better- even the best- version of yourself, take a page from this book. If you can apply it well to daily life and make the most of it, you will surely be able to improve yourself!

There is a saying that goes like this:
There are only two ways to change your destiny in life,
One is your attitude towards life, the other is a book that has been read.

The right time to make a change is always now.

The book "How to be a best version of yourself?" is to help readers adjust their perspective and behavior, strengthen their communication skills, and let you become an optimistic and fulfilling individual and become a better version of yourself!

“Being polite doesn’t cost a penny!” goes the saying. Humans are social creatures, and modern society is even more socially inseparable; to have connections is to have opportunities.

If a person wears better clothes but does not know how to be polite, he cannot hide the fact that he is poorly educated. The smartest person, the most educated, the most wealthy, the most competent, and the most impolite will bring shame to himself and his family, and this is proof of his lack of sophistication. Etiquette is the embodiment of culture; it is a way of communicating, of learning an unpronounced language that not only expresses oneself, but also allows others to understand oneself in the best possible way, and greatly boosts self-confidence and helps build excellent interpersonal relationships. Learning etiquette and behaving in a manner that feels appropriate and decent will bring out your charm and make a good impression on others, both at work and in life!

We need to understand the true nature of the problem before we can talk about how to deal with psychological barriers. Ms. Virginia Leung, with her expertise in psychological counseling and therapy, has assisted people of different backgrounds in dealing with various emotional problems, changing their lives, helping them to face their problems positively and productively, and helping them to overcome their difficulties strategically and step by step, as well as teaching them communication and social skills from the perspective of psychology to enhance manners, cultivation and substance. It also teaches communication and social skills from a psychological perspective to increase etiquette, discipline, and substance.

This book is a compilation of experiences, and I recommend it to all readers for their benefit.

Ms. Virginia Leung is an excellent psychology and etiquette expert. She specializes in interactive teaching and counseling, inspiring thinking, using real-life examples to train analytical skills, and guiding the establishment of correct values and positive thinking in the process.

Ms. Virginia Leung has a wealth of knowledge and experience in spiritual growth and interpersonal relationships, and she is never shy about sharing it with others.

In this day and age, it is very difficult not to follow the trend and not to be affected by negative emotions. Ms. Y. Leung shared in this book how to improve judgment and adjust thought patterns to maximize one's positive energy. The book also introduces basic social etiquette standards, which will help us face challenges in different stages of life.

I believe that readers will gain insight and benefit from reading this book, which will lead to a better future.

Today, to live a better life, we must learn to stay positive and grind through unfavorable situations. We should strive to enhance interpersonal skills, master the art of getting along with others, and have a mindset for constant self-improvement and raised expectations.

I highly recommend Ms. Virginia Leung Yui Ying’s book “How to Transform into a Best Version of Yourself”. It takes an unprecedented approach, motivating you to unlock your full potential in this competitive world by exploring crucial topics that often get neglected.

This book is truly influential and inspirational! A book, or an opportunity to invest in yourself, that you certainly should not turn down.
