Anyone else obsessed about becoming the best version of themselves physically and mentally?

They say the definition of hell is when you die and you have to shake hands with the man you could have become.

Today I trained Legs, learned french for an hour, emailed the head of the course I want to do at university (engineering) and helped my dad out with his divorce. Now I'm getting my protons in and shitposting on fit.

yup

right now I'm trying to get shredded, learned some shell programming over winter, got an 18 credit compsci semester coming up with a potential job at the library, and currently trying to listen to a bunch of various music as both a hobby and interest

i did that with film before I got bored, and I'll probably move on to books eventually and try and learn some instruments

also have solid gpa and interviewing for summer internships

I must be perfect in every way

You sound like the kind of person that just did some self improvement for the first time in who knows how long and now suddenly you think you're going to make it. No one gives a shit if you are not consistent with anything, if you think you're going to get anywhere with random spurts of energy productiveness you need to think again

I don't agree. Hell is having spent all your time on earth living like an immortal towards a vaguely defined goal, and then realizing in your final moments of consciousness that you failed to enjoy yourself or share that joy with others.
>>
>>30525256
>Learned 5 languages
This is really ambiguous. Aside from my native language, I've also mastered English. Yet after over 3 years I still don't think I've "learned" German.

Can you hold a fluent conversation in all 5?

>>30522640
training legs and learning french? do you think this makes you a better person?

americans are THAT SHALLOW that they attribute a good person as someone who knows more than one language, works out and has a gf and a job that pays well. americans are actually more fucking brainwashed than the damn chinese in some ways.

I speak 5 languages at native level, I'm conversational in a few others, but don't consider myself fluent. What is your native language, if you don't mind me asking, anon?
>>
>>30524598
>>30524691
Because a ton of countries speak French as a first or 2nd language, just like Spanish. It's also way easier to learn for an English speaker than any of the ones >>30524691 listed.

>>30525541
Swedish

You must possess some serious linguistic talent if you reach a native level in 5 languages plus a bunch of others on the side. I've never met anyone like you in my entire life.

I have met a few people that could speak at least 3 languages at a native level (I speak these languages) and they also claimed to be fluent in a few others as well.

bullshit, I know lads from Calcutta that only speak English, most middle class kids from Delhi speak hindi and English, and a lot of goans speak a mixture of konkani with a few English words thrown in. Many people in india have no desire to mix with other parts of the country and don't bother learning other languages.

You need to explore different learning styles, figure out what you respond best to. (eg I'm a highly visual learner, I like to learn with images). Discipline is equally important. I've sometimes gone months focussing on virtually nothing but whatever subject I'm trying to learn, I have no social life because of this. You have to be willing to sacrifice the things you consider frivolous. For some more linguistic specific advice, someone in an earlier post (might have been you) deduced that I practice with native speakers, which is a big part of learning a language. Immerse yourself in it as much as you can.

And for the record, I also did poorly in school.
>>
>>30526055
What are the 5 languages. Like others I still call bullshit you're truly native level in these languages. I've met VERY few people I would class as native level English speakers who it's not their first language and that includes a lot of people who started learning it from a very young age (looking at you swedes).
>>
so i speak german (mother language), english and french fluent. what language next?
i know chinese/mandarin would be GOAT but i guess spanish is way easier once you know french and english right?
>>
>>30526120
I'm often accused of bullshitting when I tell people I speak 5 languages, I don't take offense. In order of when I learned them, I speak: German, French, Latin, Farsi and Mandarin, English being my native tongue. Sorry for the slow replies, I'm cooking. Going to eat now, I might check the thread later on.

>>30526142
Spanish if you live in America. If not, then English and French got you covered. Might as well learn one for shits and gigs like Latin.

Yeah go for Spanish. Add an entire swathe of the world that you can then communicate with.

I know enough Spanish to hold a conversation, right now I'm learning Korean and enjoying the heck out of it.

That doesn't even make sense.
>>
So does that make you any better than everyone else?
No, like, seriously, you think you are more worthy because you waste your time learning languages and lifting heavy shit off the floor, instead of playing video games?
Jesus christ you people, its a hobby, its a pastime, you don't acquire worth because you do shit, hell, you don't acquire worth at all, that's not what life is about, its about enjoying and having a good time, stop trying to prove something to yourself, that is nothing more than rationalizing the fact you don't lift for yourself

Canada is either liked or ignored so it will be a more aesthetic citizenship to have

Aesthetics wise (since aesthetics is how others view you) being from the US is like being fat, being from Canada is like being thin/not noticeable, being from the UK is like being chiseled ottermode and Australia like being bodybuilder mode (attractive only to bar sloots while the smart/classy girls like ottermode).
