Ask yourself

Ask yourself, why do I really do this or that or whatever it is you are doing?

But ask it and be brutally honest with yourself with the answer.

I suspect you’ll be doing less of many things, if at all, and maybe you might then have time to start some other things that really matter and make a difference. You know the ones that you say you never have time for.

Brutal honesty is hard as it requires us to be open about our self-image, ego and motives. It requires bravery and being vulnerable.

The most fulfilling thing

Not fitting in is the bravest thing.

Sounds easy, we all think we are not part of the crowd.

But truly, when we deep down want to say something, to shout out and be different, how often do we agree to not offend, not cause a scene, to avoid the awkwardness, to quell the fear?

Being the true you is the hardest thing, yet it is the biggest joy, the greatest peace, the most fulfilling thing we can do as a human being, to always just be ourselves.
