MUST READ: Being ‘You’ Brings Real Success & Fulfillment


Life is a difficult struggle which must be overcome to achieve true success and fulfillment.

Until a challenge is beaten, a hurdled is jumped and problems solved, there can never be real success and fulfillment.

Real success is not what someone hands down to you. It is what you sweat to accomplish. Success and fulfilment therefore demand some hard work. Achieving these two things becomes extra difficult and even impossible if you are not being ‘you’ but rather someone else.

Have you ever heard the popular saying, “trying to be anyone else is a waste of the person you are”?

If you have not come across the above, you surely must have heard of “it is better to fail in originality than succeed in imitation”.

The beginning of true success is when you define who you are and decide to pursue what you believe in as a person, and not waste the beautiful individual that you are by trying to be someone else.

If it is hard enough to live in your own world, what do you think it will be to live in the world of another? You may achieve some sort of temporal residency in the world of another, but it will not last and it will not bring you real success and fulfilment.

True success is never about being seen as someone else or being able to get the things you want by all means. It is about achieving what you need and want by being you, living on your own terms and working through challenges as the authentic person you are.

Running the race with your own strength is what brings the real success and fulfilment, not the result or shout of glory.
