I know who I am. I do not know who you are. But if you are not you, who are you? One of our purposes in life is to be who we were created to be.

If we are not who we were created to be, who are we? It is important to be yourself. It is also important to know who you are. It is even more important to know who you are not.

You cannot achieve success in life if you don’t know yourself. You cannot be happy in life if you don’t know yourself. You cannot move forward in life if you don’t know yourself.

“If I won’t be myself, who will?” – Alfred Hitchcock

It is very difficult to be ourselves in a world where people want us to be something else. They want us to do what they say. They want us to live their lives. They want us to look like them. Believe me, if you really want to be yourself, you MUST have the courage to stand against all forms of imitation.

Imitation is a disease. Imitation prevents you from knowing your real self. The world does not need imitation. The world needs original people.

Why is it important to know yourself, to be yourself, and to know who you are not?

You will not waste your time doing the wrong things if you know yourself. But you will pursue the wrong dreams if you don’t know who you are not. You will be with the wrong people if you don’t know who you are not. You will be in the wrong relationships if you don’t know who you are not. You will focus on the wrong things if you don’t know who you are not.

It does not matter what you are doing now. What matters is, “Does it represent who you are?” If it does, continue to pursue it. But if it does not, it is time to look for something that will make you who you really are.

You can be your real self if you want to. You are the maker of your life. No one else, but you.

Albert Eintein said, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results.” If you keep doing the same thing, you will keep getting the same results. If you want a different result, you must do things in different ways. If not, you will continue to get the same results.

If you want more, you must be ready to do more, learn more, attempt more, and failure more, and play more. If you want to get an extraordinary results, you need to do extraordinary things to get the results that you want. If not, it is just a dream. Miguel De Cervantes famously said, “In order to attain the impossible, one must attempt the absurd.” You cannot change your situation by doing ordinary things. But you can change it by doing extraordinary things. Doing ordinary things will give you ordinary results. Doing extraordinary things will give you extraordinary results. To get more, to be more, you MUST do more. You must be bold. You must be courageous. You must face your fear.
