Aspire to Be
Many individuals believe that they have to "live up" to another
family member or idol. Some are even envious of famous icons and
want to look, act, think and be like the stars of the big
screen. People become so obcessed that, in their quest of
"perfection," they lose sight of who they are themselves. One of
the most peculiar idiologies of people is that they honestly
believe that they can literally "transform" themselves into
In the eternal journey of life, human beings are almost comical
in a bizarre kind of way. Television ads tell us that we "need"
certain products and services to "make" us feel better, look
better and think better. Other sociological commercialization is
exhibited by actors and actresses -- as they all seemingly have
an incredible physical appearance, coupled with extreme
self-confidence. But here's the bottom line: not all people are
perfect. Not all actors and actresses have super bodies. Not all
individuals have perfect complexions, and gorgeous hair. So what
do we do? We improvise -- and then we compromise.
We improvise with products, services, clothing, makeup, and the
like. We compromise ourselves, though, because we are no longer
"true" to our natural form. Persons who feel they "must"
actively change themselves to appear like others, is moreover a
matter of self-esteem -- or lack thereof.
The most proficient and successful goal of life is to "Aspire to
be YOU." Take a long look at yourself in the mirror. Ask
yourself the following questions:
There are no paradoxes in aspiring to be you. When you
aspire to be you, one doesn't need to comparison shop for
personalities. One merely has to look within to find his/her
unique meaning in life and how s/he emits himself or herself in
the community. When you aspire to be you, you don't have to be
superman or woman. You only have to be you -- in mind, body and
spirit. Nature's gift to mankind, is not how you define yourself
by becoming someone else -- rather, how you present yourself to
you. Aspire to be yourself, and the rest of life's voyage
will be smooth sailing.
