Hello and welcome to a PIECE OF PEACE. This week I will like to encourage you to be yourself! The hardest challenge is to be yourself in a world where everyone is trying to make you someone else. The most powerful tool we have as individuals is our mind. We have the ability to dream infinite possibilities and create amazing realities. The key to unlocking the power we have lies in our outlook of ourselves. What is your perception of who you are? Our perception informs our decisions everyday. If you perceive yourself to be a failure, you think like a failure, act like a failure and eventually you become a failure.
We are what we think and perceive ourselves to be. It is important to always remain true to who we are no matter what society says.
Sometimes the pressure to conform to the norm means that we lose our unique gifts and talents that are designed to push us to become what has been destined for us. The group mentality of success is false. You are born alone because all you need is you. The way you treat yourself sets the standard for others on how you demand to be treated. When you worry too much about what others think of you, you leave little to no room to be yourself. You cannot change the people around you, but you can change the people you choose to be around. Sometimes the pressure to fit in means that we end up compromising our integrity. You make allowances that go against your moral fabric. You end up sacrificing your personal joy for a make belief one.
Remember, you can’t be a PLUS ONE until you have learnt how to be a JUST ONE and learn to master ‘ME’ instead of ‘WE’. The only people you need in your circle are those who motivate you and push you to fulfill your greatest potential. You are created to be unique. Sometimes not everyone can understand that uniqueness. We may make some mistakes along the way, but it is important to not let those mistakes determine the rest of your journey.Be determined to learn from your past mistakes instead of letting them hold you captive. Only change what is needed to make you a better person and stay true to God’s Plan for your life.
Remember, be yourself, everyone else is taken.
