What does it mean to be yourself? What does being yourself have to do with happiness, prosperity and success? In this post we are going to find out!
I want to talk about this being yourself thing. Here is why I believe this is really important for your success in all aspects of life.
The fact is that most people say the reason they aren’t successful is because they can’t be themselves. It’s hurting their promotion at work, business, self esteem and even their health. It can be any one of these things or a combination of them.
I think it’s true that the fact that you can’t be totally and completely yourself will hold you back from being healthy, happy, prosperous and successful.
But here is where I think the difference is for most people. I’m going to challenge you to think about this. I’m going to say the biggest thing holding you back is not because your boss, your job, the environment, the government or some outside entity is preventing you from becoming successful. You are not allowing yourself to be totally and completely yourself.
You think if people knew your religion, sexuality, age, or the way you look without makeup that people wouldn’t love and accept you. I’m going to say it’s the complete opposite. Anytime you put yourself out there you just have to say that you are you and you have to own it and people have to deal with it.
If your living in a totally and completely safe environment no matter who or what you represent that is the best way to live your life. If something is holding you back it’s not some external factor. It’s you who’s holding yourself back.
