Be You

“Self-evaluation is helpful, but evaluation from someone else is essential” (Andy Stanley). Be brutally honest while self-reflecting on right and wrong. Your answers are perceptions related to personal principles, beliefs, and experiences. Make sure your ideal self and real self are congruent, therefore creating peace and abundant fulfillment within. What do you stand for and why?

“Sometimes what counts can’t be counted, and what can be counted doesn’t count” (Albert Einstein). Do not compare yourself with anyone, except who you were yesterday. Your very own intangible character traits based upon what you stand for helps preserve visions, dreams, and goals while persevering toward greatness, despite adversity. Know both what to do and what not to do in varying situations, thus expediting your journey toward becoming the best version of yourself. Furthermore, another person’s perspective, especially from a leader, mentor, counselor or coach can guide, teach, inspire and direct our steps, additionally, helping to hold us accountable. Strive toward becoming the person you truly desire and are fully capable of being. Be you!—everyone else is taken.

Be You

Strong feelings and beliefs have the power to transform our identities, as long as they facilitate positive actions. Motion is the precursor to emotion, while emotion generates action too. Make self-discipline or self-restraint priority in life, coupled with utter responsibility for who you are and who you desire to be. Self-control and being personally accountable is proof that we possess self-worth and care about ourselves as valuable individuals, worthy of loving and being loved. We are lovable because we are demonstrating love to ourselves first. Give away gifts of love in order to grow more loving. Don’t conform to others’ opinions or societal standards; be and nourish your beautiful self.
