“It takes a lot of courage to be yourself when the entire world tells you to become someone else.”
Be yourself…Be True to your soul
Just think for a second “What you want to become in your life”… “What are your goals”… “What you want to achieve”… “How do you want to look like”?
Do you want to be one like your ideal person.Do you want to be like Angelina Jolie, Madhuri Dixit, , Amitabh Bachchan, Mother Teresa, Malala, Abraham Lincoln, Beethowen or any other person.
Please remember “YOU are YOU”…you cannot be someone else so why try? You should take inspiration from them but do never try to become a Xerox copy. Learn from their lives, their struggles, their mistakes, as your life is yours…your experiences are and will be completely different from others. YOU ARE UNIQUE! So why to waste time on becoming someone else?
Realize your true self.
Define yourself in your own terms….you have your own special strengths and talents that you just need to explore and uncover!
Follow your dreams…Life is not about pleasing everyone and not everyone can be convinced on what you want to do. So if you have a strong belief on yourself and your actions…People will certainly follow…it may take some time but they will understand. Remember not to expect anything from anyone.
Learn from the past but don’t stay longer there as past is just like a dark room which would not let you see into your present and future possibilities. Remember “Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.”
Stop thinking about what others think/perceive about you, it’s none of your business. People might raise eyebrows and even make fun, but as long as you can shrug and say “Hey, that’s just me” and leave it at that, people will ultimately respect you for it, and you’ll respect yourself. Yes, sometimes it will hurt when you’re teased. Just learn to ignore it.
Live in Present…love your work or find a job which you love doing….Don’t try to be a doctor if your love is in singing…You’ll never become a good Doctor neither you’ll have time for singing…ultimately you’ll regret.
Don’t Take life so seriously…Life is not a race…sit and enjoy what you’ve achieved..be thankful..and move ahead in your life considering the next day is just a game…there is nothing to loose or win….Have fun..spread happiness…share smiles…
Most Importantly “Accept Yourself the way you are”….If you won’t love yourself….if you won’t like yourself…What can you expect from others????
Stay original….stay yourself….
