Be True To Yourself

“Beware of false knowledge, it is more dangerous than ignorance.”– George Bernard Shaw, playwright

“What a man thinks either builds up his character or pulls it down.“- Henry Thomas Hamblin

“You are the architect of your own life: it is yours to make or to mar. By the power of thoughts you are building; are you building aright?”– Henry Thomas Hamblin

Be honest with yourself. If you are not true to yourself, you will find it hard to pursue your purpose in life. And if you are not pursuing your purpose in life, you are pursuing someone else’s dreams. Cynthia Ozick said, “To want to be what one can be is purpose in life.”

To be true to yourself, make sure your dreams are yours. You need a clear vision, a clear goal, a definite chase of your purpose. But if you are not true to yourself, you cannot pursue your purpose.

For example, if you are good at something, and you are blindly pursuing something that you are not good at, you are not being honest with yourself. You are deceiving yourself. You are redirecting yourself to a different direction. A direction that will never lead you to your final destination. It will lead you to a land of unhappiness.

“It takes more effort to avoid the truth than it takes to face it.”- Robert J. Braathe

No matter where you are, always be true to yourself. Don’t let people tell you something different. You are who you are for a reason. Your reasons for being here are what you should pursue. If you pursue your WHY with all your power, you will achieve your dreams. But if you are not honest with yourself, if you keep telling yourself lies, if you keep doing the wrong things, if you keep pretending that everything is okay with you, you will never achieve your purpose in life. Learn how to face reality. Don’t ignore reality. If you do, it will come after you.

“Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.”- Kierkegaard

Life Is About Creating Your Real Self

“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”– George Bernard Shaw

Life is not about finding yourself. Life is about creating your real self. You should spend your time developing yourself, not trying to find who you are. We are not perfect. And we will never be perfect. If you are looking for perfection, you still have a long way to go.

Life is about doing better every day. Life is not about living other people’s dreams. It is about growing yourself, moving yourself forward.

You create yourself by living for yourself, by thinking for yourself, by loving yourself, by asking the right questions, by challenging yourself, by believing in yourself, by being honest with yourself and others.

When you engage in the game of finding yourself, you will miss your real self. You create yourself by embracing who you are, not who you are trying to be. Be happy with who you are, and you will enjoy your life.

How do you invite something new into your life? Good question, right?

We all need something new in our lives. We need to renew our minds every day. If you want something great, you have to think about great things. If you want to be great in life, you have to do great things. You cannot be great if you keep doing small things. You can only be great if you do small things in great ways. You cannot be great if you keep thinking small thinking. You cannot be great if you spend your time doing urgent things, instead of doing important things.

If you want new things, you have to stop doing old things. As Peter Drucker put it, “If you want something new, you have to stop doing something old.” If you want to be creative, you have to stop doing old things. You have to start doing new things. You have to start experimenting with strange things. You have to get out of your comfort zone. You have to start breathing in new oxygen into your life.

If you want something new, stop doing the old, unproductive things.

One of the reasons we live is to be our own master, is to control our lives, is to take charge of our lives. Taking control of our lives does not come easy in a society where everybody wants a piece of you. Everyone wants something from you. The question is: “Can you please everyone?”

“If you want to imitate anyone, imitate yourself.”

No, you can’t. That is if you are really honest with yourself. You cannot please everyone. If you try to do it, you will never have time for yourself. It is okay to listen to people, but don’t try to please everyone. If you do, you will fail.

You deserve a better life. You deserve to live your life in your own way. You deserve to have a healthy life. But if you put everyone’s interests before yours, you will find it difficult to live a good life.”

In the words of Marva Collins, “Trust yourself, think for yourself, act for yourself, speak for yourself, be yourself, imitation is suicide.” He is absolutely right. If you want to live your life in your own way, you MUST trust yourself. You must think for yourself. You must act for yourself. You must speak for yourself. You must be yourself. You MUST NEVER IMITATE ANYONE. If you want to imitate anyone, imitate yourself.

Imitate yourself, not others.
