Oftentimes we don’t even realize who we are meant to be because we’re so busy trying to live out someone else’s idea of us. Like a shirt that’s too big or too small we try to wear other personas and pretend they fit us just right.
KNOW YOUR VALUE
You’ve been put on this earth for a reason. Your job is to bring value to your world by using the gifts and talents you were born with. You just may be the antidote for someone’s problem! Many people are desperate for what you have to offer. Stop believing the lies of who you aren’t and start living like who you are! You’re made the way you’re supposed to be. There’s no need to reinvent yourself! As in the words of the good witch Glinda: “You had the power all along, darling!” There’s something that’s been planted inside of you forever. Why try and change it?
DISCOVER YOUR PASSION AND PURPOSE
It’s great to have role models and to aspire to the achievements of others, but only as long as you aim to discover and embrace your authentic self! Don’t waste time being someone you’re not! Forget about the things you can’t do and focus on the things you can! Find out what makes your heart skip a beat and gets you excited. Figure out what you like and don’t like. Those things are your passions and they’re usually tied to our purpose!
STAY IN YOUR OWN LANE
Don’t compare yourself to others. This will get you nowhere except wishing you were someone else and often feeling as if you don’t measure up. Keep your eyes forward and walk in your own lane. Walk out your journey and no one else’s.
Take a Chance on You
It’s time you embraced your uniqueness, followed your heart, and stayed true to who you were designed to be. E.E. Cummings summed it up perfectly when he stated, “It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.” Be courageous. Dare to be you. You are worth it.
