“If you end up with a boring miserable life because you listened to your mom, your dad, your teacher, your priest, or some guy on television telling you how to do your shit, then you deserve it.”
― Frank Zappa
When we don’t know who we are?
What do we want to be?
What are our strengths or weaknesses?
It becomes easier to get influenced by each and everything you see in the world.
Because we are not aware of your own strengths, then in order to be strong, successful and acceptable we want to be like others.
We see them doing great in their respective fields and start mimicking them and then we fail at life.
We get disappointed because we are putting all our efforts into becoming someone who we are not.
“Follow your heart, listen to your inner voice, stop caring about what others think.”
― Roy T. Bennett
Remember one thing all the greatest people in the world were never a version of someone else.
They are unique that’s why they are unforgettable.
“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
― Oscar Wilde
Hence the long story short, you have to be yourself in order to be successful and happy.
Being yourself means to sit down close your eyes and think what are the things you are good at.
What are the things that you enjoy doing?
What are the things you want to for the rest of your life and will never get tired or bored?
Recognize that talent or strength of yours and work hard.
Start working on them from now.
Appreciate your strengths and be grateful.
Accept your weaknesses and try to improve them. Being yourself doesn’t mean to ignore your weakness or negative traits.
Hustle hard to be the best version of “you”.
Be yourself means to identify what makes you “you”.
“Follow your inner moonlight; don’t hide the madness.”
― Allen Ginsberg
We all have something unique in us. All we need to do is to identify those qualities, Polish them and shine bright like a diamond.
If you are good at whatever you are doing the world will not only pay you for that but know you for that.
“When you are content to be simply yourself and don’t compare or compete, everyone will respect you.”
― Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching
All the best.
