Personal Growth | Having the courage in being you
Personal Growth – Having the courage to embrace being you, being unique and have the control to make your own destiny.
This post is something I’ve been wanting to do for quite a while, I wanted to address the issue of being you. I have quite a few people tweet me, contact me on email or just drop me a message on Facebook. Talking about being unique, or saying they aren’t good at this or that and don’t know what to do… Well, let me give you some guidance in the right direction. Let’s create your own destiny!I always believe we have our own skills, we are all good at certain things and not so much at others. Its about finding out what we are great at and what we are not… But that’s just one element of it. Now, while school is incredibly important and puts you on the right path, I don’t always believe it prepares you for what life really offers, or let’s you understand who you are. That’s an interesting statement “Who you are”, well who are you? What defines you?
“The teacher looked at the student and said, what defines you?” The student replied “Sir, I don’t know… But I will soon.”
While that is an incredibly vague question, and one that doesn’t have the easiest answer. What I’m trying to do is say that everyone, from your best friend, to the person sitting next to you in class to the person that was leaving the supermarket just after you. Everyone is different, with different emotions, feelings and dreams. So embrace that, don’t think for a second you have to be like anyone else. You are you. One of a kind, the only one there will be! So embrace who you are, work on what you are good at and forget about the stuff you’re not.
The best advice I can give you is whoever you are, whatever your interests are, whatever your dreams are, don’t let anyone change that. Be who you are and stay who you are.
“Be yourself, everyone else is taken”
So remember, this is your life, not anyone else’s make your own destiny, build your own road and create your future. You only live on the earth once, so make the most of it… By being you. If you have any more questions reach out to me on twitter.
