The more I learn, the more I experience in life, the more I realize the necessity and value of being true to myself. Being true to myself grows out of self-belief, self-worth, and self-love, which means knowing my potential and abilities, not allowing myself to think negatively, and not allowing anyone to put me down.
Taking control of your message begins by knowing what you are, what you stand for, and what you believe in. If you do not take control of your message, then you are empowering others to create an unauthentic image and narrative of you. When you allow others to control your message, you are validating their erroneous assumptions about you and allowing them to determine the value of your life and the outcomes you experience.
Yes, the way you think and act might challenge those around you. So what? If other people have a problem with who you are – too bad! That is their problem, not yours.
Continually harness the power within and imprint your essence on the world’s consciousness. Begin each day by taking control of your message. Be your own inspiration. Be powerful!
