WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE TRUE TO YOURSELF
To be true to yourself is to discover your strengths, passions, limitations and purpose in life and you are completely honest with yourself, open-minded and fair. However, the only way to truly know yourself is by living life. I mean by finding out what works for you what defines you.
“The moment you try to be someone else you lose your identity and cease to exist”
Okay let’s talk about “Why you need to stay true to yourself”
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO STAY TRUE TO YOURSELF?
Choosing not to live by someone else’s opinion or standards does not make you disrespectful and you really do not need to care about what people think of you. You have to remember life is an individual race and you are in charge of every decision and action you take.
1) You will discover your purpose
When you discover your purpose, that is, the reason for which you were made and how you will achieve it, then you will be fulfilled. Being true to yourself will give you inner peace and the assurance that you own your race. You are in charge!!!
2) Discover Your Limitations And Strength
To fulfil your purpose , you need to be able to identify your strengths and limitations.
What are your limitations as a person? What are the things that you consider as difficult or hard for you to accomplish or believe in?
What are the things you do effortlessly?
Being true to yourself makes you answer all these questions.
In other words, you know what to channel your energy towards, where you need to put in more effort. What you can do and what you can’t do. More so, you keep growing and developing yourself.
3) You will attract the right people
When you discover yourself ,your strength and weakness ,you automatically find yourself among the right set of people. Those who think alike and give you the opportunity to express yourself.
4) Life will be much easier
There is nothing as good as living a peaceful and successful life. A successful life is a purpose-driven life. Not defined by money, resources but one that is deeper. When you stay true to yourself, things fall in place and you are not competing with anyone. You will run your own race at your own pace.
In conclusion, stay true to yourself. Don’t worry about pleasing other people; living by someone else’s standards or rules. Stop caring too much about what people think and you end up being a shadow of yourself. You are the game charger! You are in charge! You are the boss of you!
Set the ground rules and boundaries, give no one else that power or pleasure. Live your truth!!!!
