The Battle To Be Just You

According to Leo Buscaglia, “The hardest battle you’re going to fight is the battle to be just you.” If you can’t be yourself, why are you living? One of the reasons we live is to be able to be ourselves. But we now live in a world where people don’t want us to be ourselves. That is hard to take in.

Listen, my friend, no matter what, it is better to be your own self. Your real self. If you can fight to be yourself, you will always be a happy and positive person. Why is that? Because you are living your real life. You are not hiding anything. You are not trying to be who you are not. You are not trying to live other people’s dreams. You are just you.

Life is all about battles. But the hardest battle is the battle we fight within ourselves. The battle to be free. The battle to think positively. The battle to say something good about ourselves. The battle to fight doubts. The battle to fight our fears. The battle to fight procrastination. The battle to connect with our real selves. These are some of the battles that we fight every day.

You don’t have to be at war with yourself. Don’t go around feeling that something is not right with you. Everything is right with you. There is nothing wrong on the inside of you. You are perfect. You are great. You are beautiful. You are positive.

People are not happy because they don’t like who they are. They don’t like how they look. They don’t like how they talk. They don’t like where they work. They don’t like their hair. They focus on their weaknesses, not their strengths. That is wrong! Don’t be ashamed of yourself. Don’t!

You can change everything. Yes, you can do it. Everything about your life is under your control. Take charge of your life. James Allen said, “Make your every thought, word, and deed sweet and pure.” If you can do that, your life will change. Because if you don’t change how you see yourself, your reality won’t change.

You are not supposed to go through life feeling like a failure. You are not. You are here for greatness. You are here for a reason. You are here to live, not to exist. You are here to multiply, not to die. You are not here to waste your time. You are here to work your time. You are here to live your time.

You can live a beautiful life. To do that, you must stop seeing yourself as a loser. You must quit beating yourself up for useless things. You must quit telling yourself bad things. You must quit focusing on what you don’t have. You must start celebrating your life. You must start treating yourself as a human being.

You must fight to be just yourself, because you can’t separate yourself from you. You can’t. So you must learn to fight just to be your REAL self.

Never Give Up On Your Dreams. When You Are Ready, The Door Will Open

As Earl Nightingale once said, “Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.”

It is never too late to pursue your dreams. Your dreams will die if you don’t act. To keep your dreams alive, you must take actions to make them happen. You can make them happen. They are within your reach. They are not impossible.

Don’t kill your own dream by imposing limits on your thoughts. Remember, what you think you can do, you can. What you think you can’t do, you can’t. Do not limit yourself.

If you have the courage to pursue your dreams today, your tomorrow will be better than your today. But if you fail to pursue your dreams today, your tomorrow will be worse than your today.

In order to have a better tomorrow, you must do something today. You must change something today. You must change your thoughts. You must be honest with yourself. You must face your own reality, the reality you created for yourself. You must question your reality. Your tomorrow depends on what you are doing right now.

What you plant today will determine what you will reap tomorrow. If you plant positive seeds, you will reap positive fruits. If you plant negative seeds, you will reap negative fruits. Do not kill your dream. Give your dream a chance to survive. Give your dream a chance to grow. Water your dreams. They will water you.

People always say, “I am too old to do this or too old to do that.” Your biological age is not what is stopping you to do something to change your life; it is your thought that is holding you back.

If you change your thinking, your life will change. James Allen said, “A man can only rise, conquer, and achieve by lifting up his thoughts. He can remain weak, and object, and miserable by refusing to lift up his thoughts”

Well said. If you want to achieve small things, you do not need to work very hard. You don’t need to work hard to be an average person. Do you want to be an average person or a great person? You decide.

If you want to achieve much in life, you must do much to get it done. Success comes with a big price. Are you ready to pay the price? Are you ready to work hard? Are you ready to work smart? Are you ready to be uncomfortable?

If you want to achieve big things in your life, you must be ready to work very hard and smart. Sometimes hard work is not enough. You must work smart.

You must be willing and ready to do what others are ignoring. You must be willing and ready to be vulnerable. You must be willing and ready to get out of your bubble. You must be willing and ready to be criticized. When you are ready, the world is ready to help you succeed. When you are ready, the door will open.

There is nothing you cannot achieve in life if you are ready, willing, and committed to making it happen. You can do anything if you want to succeed.

I will sum this article up with a quote from George Whitefield. He said, “Press forward. Do not stop, do not linger in your journey, but strive for the mark set before you.”
