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 other persons.

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:

  • What do YOU want to do?
  • How do YOU wish others to see you?
  • What defines me?
  • Am I confident?
  • Am I happy?
  • What can I do to be happier?
  • What are my goals?
  • What are my dreams and aspirations?
  • Do I 'need' to transform myself? And most importantly,
  • Do I know where I'm going in life?

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.
