In today's time, when every day a new trend, a new standard is set: it truly is a rare art to be your true self. Here's how you can bring out the YOU in you.
1. Set your own standard
It's natural to follow anything that shines, but we often forget the 'shine' comes only when you ignite a spark of authenticity within you. It's okay to sometimes follow someone else. Nothing wrong. But, it shouldn't be at the cost of your own light.
2. Stop comparing yourself
We all have a different role to play on this planet. Find out what that is and stop comparing yourself with others.
3. Make peace with yourself
Embrace your weaknesses and harness your strengths. No one is perfect. So, don't beat yourself over it. Keep trying every day and leave the rest on the universe. It will give you what's best for you.
4. Don't try to please everyone
Why? Because you can't, even if you try your hardest. So, instead of pretending to be like someone just to fit in, be yourself and let the true ones come around.
5. Learn who you are
Yes, you got to learn about yourself! No one knows who they're from birth. One of life's very purposes is to discover your true self.
Here are a few ways to do this:
2. Talk to people with solid experience
3. Try as many different things and understand what makes you feel truly yourself
4. Unlearn habits that pull you back
The journey of self-discovery can drain you. There are going to be difficult days, but the good days will make up for all your struggles. So, be yourself, because at the end you decide who you are.
