“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.” —Ralph Waldo Emerson
We become who we want to be.
It is a long process, an eventful journey, and a whole lot of discovery and change will be made along the way. It is how you live your life. Unfortunately, in between, a lot of time is wasted because we lose focus and we tend to have the endless capacity of pleasing others.
We have a lot of wants and needs. On top of these things we still find time to do what others bid and worry about what they might think or say. We hope this changes for everyone as much it changed for us.
Change is not easy. It is one of the biggest challenges there is and most importantly, you have to want it. Similar to what you wish to happen in your life and the future, you have to decide to be that person to achieve the future you have envisioned.
This is why being yourself at all times is of paramount importance. Who you want to be and where you want to go depends on you. It is a decision you should make for yourself, and not for others. It is not to say that you forget caring about others and your loved ones, only that you do not do something to please others at the cost of your happiness, freedom, and dreams.
Decide to be the best person you can be. Love others the way you want to, care for them the way your heart tells you to, not the way they demand. Decide to be free from the burden of thinking what others say about you – you know who you are and everything about you. Be kind, honest, loyal and faithful and most of all, be YOU.
You are destined to do great things, but first, you have to remember the importance of being yourself. It is the key to do what you want and to achieve the things you are dreaming about. Be YOU and make it non-negotiable. People who care about you will not question this; they will give their support and be happy for you.
Do not settle for anything less – decide to make your destiny your own design.
