Be You. Be Authentic. Be Yourself.

You are a unique individual created to do something special, something very unique in this universe that only you can deliver. There is a great quote by Albert Einstein that says, “Everyone is a genius but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life thinking it is stupid.”

Why would lots of us humans on this planet try to emulate others, try to copy and follow the crowd and failing to be who we really are? Failing to embrace and live the gifts that we were given before we were born.

It’s very against nature when you try to be who you are not. Worrying about what people think, worrying about different perceptions, different judgments, being held down in the prison of societal expectations. It’s not right. It doesn’t feel free. It doesn’t let your gifts flow naturally.

I’ll give you an example. When I was growing up, there was a big expectation for me to become a doctor and I pursued that path. It was great and I put my all into it.  But it didn’t feel right to me; it didn’t feel natural. And over 20 years ago, I switched when I encountered my first computer, I created my first email address and my life transformed. I gave it my heart.

My passion flowed naturally building software. It didn’t feel like work. It was something really, really natural for me and I had so much joy. When the abundance and the rewards that came for this passion through money, it came naturally. The money was just a side effect of living my passion. I felt I was already compensated by living my dream, building software solutions for people all over the world.

Be yourself. Be original and don’t succumb to societal expectations. They’re great pains in this world, there are people who are very unhappy doing something that they do not love, living a life that is based on expectations from the society.  There are people in unhappy marriages but afraid to really follow their hearts and go after that great fulfilling love that they deserve.

So I would like to conclude by letting you know that you are who you are. Follow your heart. Be original. Don’t worry about what the world says about you. If you don’t do this, you can look back one day and regret it. And you would have no one else to blame but yourself.

I bid you peace, blessings and a Wealthy Mind.
