“I’d rather fail at being myself than succeed at being someone else.”
— Andre Gide – – –
As difficult as it might be to truly feel this way, if you have tried to be someone you’re not, you know how empty that is.
The surprising thing is that we try to be someone we aren’t a lot more often than we realize. How often do we force a behavior or a response that is completely out of our normal character? A better question is, why? Why do we feel that we need to be someone we aren’t? There are many reasons really. Fear, lack of self confidence, lack of understanding, lack of faith. Whatever the reason, the results are the same. Loss of self.
The truth is that the only way to truly be successful is to do it as yourself. So maybe you are thinking that being yourself isn’t enough. Well think again.
Remember this, God designed only one you, and He doesn’t make mistakes.
