You Can Succeed at Being You – March 19 Inspiration

at

You can succeed at being you. Not someone else, but just you, yourself. It never really works to try to be someone else. It’s too much effort to put on a false front, and it puts us in a self-imposed prison. There’s much more freedom in being who God created us to be, in spite of faults and imperfections. Our true value is found in God and all He has done for us and given to us.

 

 

 

Here’s your inspiration belatedly for Saturday…

 

~~*~~

“Are you tired of playing games,

wearing masks,

and trying to be  someone

other than who you are?

Wouldn’t you like the freedom

just to be acceptable as you are,

without pressure to be someone

you really don’t know how to be?

Would you like to learn

how to succeed at being yourself?

God wants you to accept yourself,

to like who you are, and to learn

to deal with your weaknesses.

Everyone has weaknesses,

but God doesn’t want you

to reject yourself because of them.

If you base your value on your weaknesses,

you will underestimate your value.

Your worth is not based on anything

you do, but on what God

has already done.”

–Joyce Meyer in “Ending Your Day Right”

My reflections:

This one is a good reminder to just be who we are destined to be and fulfill our own potential, being genuine instead of fake.

~~*~~

So what are YOUR thoughts?

Do you have trouble to just accept yourself and enjoy being you?

Are you succeeding at being yourself?

    This is such a great reminder! It’s tough to enjoy life when you don’t like yourself. Believing in yourself is vital! Every person is different and unique and what works for them might not work for me. So I try to live my life the way I want to live it, setting my own goals and , not comparing myself to others. As always enjoyed reading your post!
