I was wondering about this thought - how do I know when I am truly 'myself'? I heard many successful people say - be yourself and that is all you need to be. I would wonder when I was not being myself and how 'being myself' shows up.
It struck me the other day that I am not being myself when i am playing the victim - that's the first sign of not being myself. I feel that this draws me away so much from what I really am because I think I choose a lazy way of getting by. A seemingly lazy way that actually takes me away from an easier way, a more efficient way that gives more for less.
Give up the victim role first, and you're pretty much yourself.
