I was wondering whether a phrase 'a better you' is correct or not. For example: Only determination will lead to a better you.
Is it correct or should it be: Only determination will lead to better you. ?
I suppose it's an idiom or expression. I don't like it at all because it sounds too much like a self improvement book. Using 'better' as a reflexive verb doesn't sound quite so ungrammatical or slangy or silly or whatever it is that neither of us likes.
You can only better yourself with determination.
So much depends on what you want to do and what register you want.
