Try not to worry over becoming that ideal version of yourself. You know, the one who exists somewhere in the gleaming future…
That woman with the lovely house over-looking the ocean.
That man with the envious pad in the most luxurious high-riser.
Despite good, forward-thinking intentions, this imagined You is frankly an egocentric vision. This Self is a mirage.
In contrast, the true Self is inside your heart right here and right now. Whether you consciously notice it or not, she is in there singing her song and he is in there dancing his dance. Yourself will continue to be, with or without your attention. And yet, the goal is to thrive from the inside out.
Feel the You in your heart. Do you hear yourself flutter?
To become the You you are destined to be, simply be your true Self all the time. Easy, right? To start, treat your purpose like a study. As you practice the craft of You, you will get so good at being yourself, you will sing and dance to your own splendid tune every waking moment. You will inspire people everywhere You go.
In time, you will bloom into a more brilliant version of You than you could have ever even imagined.
Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You. ― Dr. Seuss
