Sometimes, you look around at specific members of society who thrive and live life to the fullest and form the idea that "I want to be exactly like them" instead of being yourself. If you keep that mindset, then you will prevent yourself from thriving as an individual, because if you attempt to thrive as someone you are not, the YOU inside of yourself will not benefit from fueling the personality you stole from someone else.
Everyone strives for perfection, but the perfect you is the unstoppable and powerful you, and not anyone else. Being yourself is something you are born with, and being someone else is something you will never be able to achieve. The best chance you have at success is to embrace and expand on what you already are.
- Benefits of being yourself
- You can be anything you desire
- You can have anything you desire,
- You can do anything you desire.
Just because you're yourself and not another person doesn't mean you can't improve yourself. Self improvement is the best thing a person can do for themselves. If you're going through a stage in your life where you feel uncomfortable in your own skin, don't take another's skin, improve your own. Therefore, you can change yourself for the better, and remain authentic to your true self.
People cherish individuality, take for example: Shakespeare, Leonardo Da Vinci, Alexander the Great, all those timeless icons, all can be identified as undeniable individuals. Their individual ideals, their individual personalities, their individuality is what created their success.
If you want to be the admired, you need to cherish who you are and expand on the personality you were born with. The opportunities are endless when you expand upon yourself. You can be anything, have anything, and do anything as long as you set YOUR OWN mind to the opportunity.
