Avoid Wasting The Person You Are…



I am not sure how many of us have sat down to answer the question; Who are you? Even for those of us who have attempted this question, probably we could not adequately say who or what we are without having to step into someone’s corner.

Majority of us cannot simple define ourselves because we do not know who we are. We might have spent years discovering and understanding ourselves and yet all the knowledge acquired about ourselves does not solve the puzzle-Who are you?

In our struggle to define and set ourselves on course, most of us have/are brutally destroying the person that we are.  Life is a big messy journey with different unique individuals racing for a win. Every individual has a special attribute to help him/her with the journey and it is this uniqueness that defines us.

Despite our individual uniqueness, it is disheartening that majority of us are wasting the person (the unique individual) that we are by wishing to be someone else. What is more to life if we waste our own persona and aggressively desire to be someone else?

Your wish to be someone else is the last shot which is gradually killing your life and all you were supposed to achieve. No matter how much a rabbit tries, it can never be like the cat. However, the very minute the rabbit attempts to become like a cat, it will lose focus on what it stands for (a substantial lost). It can never also achieve its wishes to be like a rabbit and that will be a second lost.

Your life has no limits and it is as beautiful as that of the other person. It is up to you to set the beauty in progress by having confidence in the person that you are. To be successful in life, you must avoid the common mistake of wasting the person that you are by continually wishing to be like someone. And remember confidence does not come from always being right, it also comes from not fearing to be wrong. Stop wasting the person that you are!
