"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”-Emerson
Live life on purpose.
Most people live life on accident. They end up a byproduct of their environment and their upbringing.
Very few people take the reins of their life and build it to be exactly what they want.
A first step in the process is killing your inner narrative you tell yourself about yourself. What you think you are or why you think you do things is based on the external world. It’s your Ego trying to fit in and protect itself from pain.
You don’t need to label yourself. You don’t need to tell yourself stories about yourself. You don’t need to justify yourself. You don’t need to explain yourself.
Observe yourself like a scientist examining a subject with the only goal of trying to understand the subject.
Most people are so intertwined to their beliefs that they can’t question themselves. They live in perpetual dogma, always justifying, explaining or blaming others rather than looking inward to find answers.
This is why most people, yes MOST, live their entire lives in the same place, doing the same things, thinking the same things, getting the same results.
