Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.
We spend most of our lives thinking that someone or something else can give you what only you can give yourself. To be truly fulfilled, we have to find what we love within us and give it to ourselves. No other person, amount of money, material possession or accomplishment can do it. We have an opportunity to celebrate who we are for any reason and at any time. Then from this place of self appreciation, the fear behind our worries and the motivation for our goals dramatically changes from something we have to avoid or produce in order to be accepted and valued to something we’re genuinely concerned about or really want to accomplish.
