In this interesting, crazy journey of life, we often wonder if we are on right track, we wonder is it Ok to be what you are, sometimes we even may look around for role models. Having role models is really good, however when we try to become the role models we admire …we miss the joy of being what we are …we miss ourselves.

Even if we are persistent enough to stick to our own style, the external conditions, people we live with, people we work with and other people in life  directly or indirectly force us to change from our true self.  These are the true testing times for any person.

Change is good, change is necessary, change is part of growth. However, changing everything for everything just symbolizes lack of individuality. We need to respect the values we believe in, the style of life we believe in and the ideas we love to work on.

These thoughts on “Being Yourself” reminded me the lines from the book  “Jack straight from the gut”.

********************************

 He says”Never underestimate how far you can go by merely being yourself.”

Welch says that when he got promoted, he considered conforming to corporate norms. As a newly minted vice chairman, he showed up at one of his first board meetings in a perfectly pressed blue suit, a starched white shirt, and a crisp red tie. A long-time colleague came up after the meeting, touched the suit, and said, “Jack, this isn’t you. You looked a lot better when you were just being
yourself.”

Here is a good video about Jack Welch:

**************************

Just Imagine!!!! If we were to be like others, why were created? I am sure God is not lazy like you or me to Xerox the same person multiple times. God took time to create each of us in a unique manner. Once we realize this fact. We will not have any doubt in being ourself ..even in the times of crisis 🙂 .

Eat, Pray, Play, Laugh, Read, Travel, Sing, Dance, Work in your own style. Be authentic. Enjoy the status of being what you are.  Do not forget that this celebrity status of “Being Yourself” is ever lasting and ever green. Do learn from others, however learning does not mean losing your self, losing your individuality…dare to BE YOURSELF..afterall you are the OWNER of Your Life….Live it in a Royal Manner 🙂

Now…Sing aloud with me like Selena….

I wouldn’t want to be anybody else…..

But when it comes to me
I wouldn’t want to be anybody else

Na na na na  na
Na na na na na na
I’m no beauty queen
I’m just beautiful  me

La na na na na na na na na!
La na na na na na na na na!

Cheers,
