How To Claim Yourself

'When you don't claim your value as the light of the world, 
it's easy to take things personally and allow yourself to be confused - 
and potentially abused.''- Debra Landwehr Engle

To get the best out of life, you must 'claim your value.'
Do not let anything get in your way to greatness,
to your greatness. 
You will get there if you have the courage to claim yourself
as the person you are. 

Do not try to be who you are not. It is a sign of self-rejection.
Because if you love yourself, no matter where you are,
you will never hide yourself. 
But if you do not believe in yourself,
if you are not comfortable with yourself, you are not going to be able to claim yourself.
Because you can't have what you do not know. 
You can't claim what doesn't belong to you. 

To claim yourself, you must first embrace yourself.
Do not hide yourself. You are here to live your life, not to hide 
your greatness. 

This Is The Root Of All Evil

Boris Pasternak, Russian poet, on 'the root of all evil.' 
He said, ''The main misfortune, the root of all evil to come, was loss of the confidence in the value of one's own opinion. People imagined that it was out of date to follow their own moral sense, that they must all sing in chorus, and live by other people's notions, notions that were crammed down everybody's throat.''

From the quote above, permit me to ask you the following questions:

Do you value your own opinion? Do you believe that it is out of date to follow your own moral sense? Are you just following the crowd? Are you living by other people's notions?

Difficult questions, right? Maybe, maybe not. It depends on what you want for yourself. If you want to make a difference in your life, in the lives of those around you, 
you must value your own opinion.
you must follow your own moral sense. 
you must sing your own song. 
and you must not forget who you are, what you want, and where you want to go.
