A high percentage of people never become ok with who they are. Many times they die with the music still inside because they never stepped out to become who they are supposed to be. They never became ok with who they are.
One of the most captivating things you will ever see is a person who is comfortable with who they are. It doesn’t matter if they have money or not, what color their skin is, etc. When you meet someone that is ok with who they are, it is a refreshing and captivating thing to see. I have been in some pretty big office buildings over the years and have met folks with big titles; it is amazing how many of those people seem to have it all together that actually have nothing together and are very insecure. It is because they never learned to be comfortable in their own skin.
I have used the example before that it is like cutting the grass and painting the shutters on a house that is falling apart on the inside.
Self-respect, self-love and self-esteem are three very powerful building blocks in any person’s life. If you can teach your children how to have a healthy self-esteem, you as a parent will have instilled in your children one of the greatest gifts you can give them.
The image of the person who is ok with who they are is the person that is able to be content and full of joy through the journey of life, not just at the destination of life. There are people that say “when that happens, when we get that house, when I get that job, when I marry that person, when I make that sale, I will be happy.” They are simply deceiving themselves if they think an event will be the starting point of happiness.
Being ok with who you are does not mean you have to give up on your dreams and stop trying to better yourself. It doesn’t mean you look at yourself in the mirror and say I don’t need to fix my hair, shave, or lose weight. It just means that you should always keep improving your life, health, education, and physical fitness, but you should not look at that improvement as the source of your contentment in life. Being ok with who you are is a cornerstone of your life that can only be secured by deciding it is time to secure it. Let me say that again, being ok with who you are is a cornerstone of your life that can only be secured by deciding it is time to secure it. It starts with a decision to fix the foundation of the house (you) and all the rest is cutting the grass and painting the shutters. KT
