I always wondered what it means when they say 'be yourself' to be successful. I thought I was being myself by being what I was. But then it made sense when I looked at it like this.
I know what comes between me and my full potential. I have certain judgments about how I am, how I should be and how I will do some things and not do some things. Now that's exactly what is 'not me'. All that holds me back from being at full potential is what's not me.
When I drop that face, that pretense, that judgment - all that holds me back - I will be free to be myself at full potential. Now to drop them off - one by one.
And be me.
