Stay True to Yourself

In the past few months I’ve read biographies on Robin Williams, Bill Belichick, and Fred Rogers, of Mr. Rogers Neighborhood fame.

These three couldn’t be more different from each other, and yet each was remarkably successful in his own way. Why?

I believe the key is that each of them stayed true to himself. None of them tried to be anything other than himself.

Describe yourself. Your values, your standards, your areas of focus, your style, your way of doing things, your passions, your talents, and your character strengths. Write those down. And then as you go about doing whatever you do stay true to yourself. Just try to be a better you. Don’t waste trying to be a better somebody else.
