IF YOU AREN’T CHASING ANY DREAM, DON’T FEEL BAD IF YOU ARE PURSUED BY A NIGHT MARE- Official Nnamdi.
Before you read this I want you to take few seconds to think of who you are and confirm if you’ve been living according to your identity and dreams. Done? I’m glad you clicked the link that got you here and I promise you won’t regret it. Hope the week has been fabulous if not I hope this posts lets you understand something really important. As I promised; the second part of BEING YOURSELF where we discuss the consequences and solutions.
While you were thinking of your identity, did you realise you are still on track or did you find out you have deviated someway? It won’t hurt to share your opinions in the comment box. How did it happen? How have you been able to stay on course?
Here is what I know;
Firstly, please you need principles for your life; what I can do and what I’ll never do.
UNDERSTAND WHO YOU ARE
You need to take sometime to think of who you are, your abilities and your roots. We need to realise that we are wonderfully and fearfully made; YOU are special. Before you came into existence it took more than words- God had to work harder than he had done already to create me and you. He allocated a whole day just for you, YOU are not ORDINARY. Don’t you think you are worth all this work and time?
BE THE BEST VERSION OF YOU
We must understand that we could be better than who we are right now. Being you doesn’t mean you don’t learn new things, you must. But what are you learning? Things that contradict who you are or things that confirm you as an upgrade. Your principles would determine what you’ll learn. Remember an android application would never be compatible with an IOS or JAVA. Same way the life of crime would not be compatible with the life of a police officer. If you force any of these it would only cause damage. Do you want to damage yourself? Or upgrade yourself to a better person that would resist virus (negativity) even better.
BE YOURSELF, EVERYONE ELSE IS TAKEN- Oscar Wilde
Yes, everyone else is taken. Be you or be nobody. Understand this; we all have something to offer that no one else can give. You can’t be exactly like another person, don’t try fitting in when you were born to stand out. Don’t take on another person’s identity and don’t loose yourself living another person’s life cause believe me; YOU CAN NEVER BE BETTER AT THEIR OWN GAME. As much as I believe in imitating good, the truth is no one is perfect so why not follow the good steps then build more roads and even better ones to success. We keep getting better as we learn from others.
YOU CAN’T IMPRESS EVERYONE.
I repeat; you can’t impress everyone. I’ll explain; everyone out there is expecting something from you but unfortunately they don’t all expect the same thing. You either do what’s right by being the best version of you, helping as much as you can without going against the principles you have set for your life. You could be the type of person that doesn’t take alcohol but do you need to take it cause its your friends party. If they don’t respect your decisions and want you to go against your principles I advice you demote them to acquaintances rather than friends. Plainly, you’ll loose yourself if you aim at impressing everyone.
STAND FOR SOMETHING
We need to stand for something and hold firm to it so that when the storms of the opposite comes it won’t carry us away. Stand for nothing and fall for everything. We also must set goals for our lives as this would give us the strength to maintain balance in tough times. Be sure to follow the principles you have based your life upon.
Lastly dear reader; REMEMBER YOUR ROOTS.
