“Do the hardest thing on earth for you. ACT YOURSELF.” – Katherine Mansfield

In this fast moving world we live in, with the technology to see what everyone else is doing and our competitive nature, we are often trying to emulate, copy, or be like someone else. We all have heroes and we all admire certain achievements of others but we must not lose sight of the fact that we are unique. There is not another person like us anywhere and we have strengths that others might not have. Strengths that we may take for granted and fail to utilise if we are busy trying to be someone else.

It is ok to look at other peoples’ achievements to help develop your beliefs or to give you the courage or motivation to soldier on and achieve. You should, however, stay mindful that you are a miracle creation, we all are. We all have the ability to achieve extraordinary results in chasing our life’s purpose.

So get out there and be the best YOU that you can be. Act yourself and know by doing so you’ll have the power within to achieve whatever it is your heart desires. You can do it!
