Be yourself is an inadvertent psychological scam!
Be yourself! a popular expression used in a bid to instill confidence and self-belief, but unfortunately the worst ever.
Do you really want to be yourself?
The belief of being oneself has a psychological effect of pushing us to inadvertent shift our mindsets from growth to fixed. everything we got now is direct reflection of who we are now (today). So, being yourself means being fixed with what you have now.
If what you have now is what you want always and forever, then it would be a good thing to always, and forever be yourself.
Being yourself hence implies:
- never learning new things
- never working any harder
- never pushing your will power and persistence
- never being better
- never, never, never…
If you want more out of life, then you must be ready to:
- learn new things
- work a little harder
- be persistent
- be better
- be, be, be…
…and doing all of the above and more, is ceasing form being yourself at some point in your life.
I guess, because you surely want to aim for the better and make the best out life, you as well will have to cease being yourself.
Be yourself is the worst advice you should ever consider, in building confidence and self-belief. You know why?
…simply because you surely don’t intend to be static in life. You surely are looking forward to becoming better and getting the best out of life.
Don’t just be yourself; be BETTER!
