Who Are You?
I recently came across a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson that struck me, “To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
How many of us have pursued a career because we were trying to live up to someone elses expectations, a parent, spouse, teacher? How many of us have listened to others who came up with all of the reasons why IT won’t work?
Has your creative spirit been squashed because you believe your company culture would frown upon your idea?
Think about how you’re living your life and whether you are truly being yourself or have conformed to a persona that you believe others will accept. We all want to be liked… why is it so easy to believe we have to be someone else for us to be accepted and liked? All of us are unique in so many ways. We have gifts that only we can offer…
Take a moment to tick off your unique talents and what you can offer to the world… Then go out and let the world see YOU, not someone you think they want to see… that would truly be a great accomplishment!
