Benjamin Creme said, “No one can lead you. You are born to be aware of yourself, to know the Master in yourself.” Why are you not comfortable with yourself? Why are you not happy with your life? The answer is simple: because you are not “aware of yourself.” And to be comfortable with yourself, you must know who you are. Do not try to be like another person.

You are not born to imitate other people. You are here on this earth to make your own statement. No matter how you look, to know who you are, you must be aware of yourself. Because no one knows you more than you know yourself. Do not get busy try to defeat another person. Instead, why not focus on making yourself better than you were yesterday? Do not imitate anybody. You have what it takes to do what you are put here to do. According to Benjamin Creme, “If you follow others instead of being yourself, you lose your sparkle and cannot reflect the light of individuality. Without that light, there is no progress in life.” So if you want to reinvent your life, you must follow yourself, not other people.

It takes courage to live, to love, to do things differently. What about you? Do you have the courage to be for yourself? Do you have the courage to pursue your dreams? Do you have the courage to tell yourself the truth? Do you have the courage to pursue your passion? Do you have the courage to forgive those who have wronged you? Do you have the courage to forgive yourself?

If you want to be successful in your life, you must have the courage to make courageous decisions. It takes courage to live a successful life. So if you want to grow, you must have the courage to be for yourself. Because when you are for yourself, when you are for your dream, when you are for your life, no one can be against it. But if you do not have the courage to defend your life, no one is going to be for it. The Scripture says, “If God is for you, who can be against you?” So, if you are for yourself, who can be against you?
