How to be yourself in a Mediocre World (5 mins)

To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. __Ralph Waldo Emerson

Spider Man, Batman, The Red power Ranger, Green Lantern, Flash, Superman, Ben10, and X-men Did those names ring a bell? We all wanted to be this… Or that… that sometimes, we forget to be ourselves.
As a mater of fact, Since the time we were very young, we begin to experiment with a variety of different identities. Because we are impressionable. It is only natural that we try out new versions of ourselves at fairly regular intervals. The less inhibited we are, the more readily we will try to imitate whatever appeals to us at the moment. At that, we still tend to want to be like people we truly admire (me included I wanted to be superman and flash). I only wonder who the people we want to be like want to be like. hmm… think about it.

The Implausible Impact Of Your Environment For Success

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.
John Muir

Motivation is great. Literally billions of dollars are spent each year by people trying to build their motivation. Tony Robbins, Jeff Keller and others have made fabulous careers helping people maximize their motivation. In truth, you could be helped to focus your motivation for success. All of that is good and useful.

But….

Your environment may be, to a greater extent, as important as your motivation.

By environment, I’m not talking where you live. It is more about how you choose to live.

Think and grow rich by Napoleon Hill

Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe it can achieve

This is an evergreen, wonderful and magnificent book. Ever since I read it, it has revolutionized my mindset and the way I looked toward life, money and in turn changed my attitude about achieving success. I was inspired by all the chapters two of which I can’t forget are ” I will never stop because men say no” a sub of chapter 1 and the chapter on the subconscious mind because that’s the main thing we need to control.
Below are some quotes that caught my attention.

Success comes to those who become success conscious. Failure comes to those who indifferently allow themselves to become failure conscious.

Both poverty and riches are offsprings of thoughts.

What is “attitude is everything”?
This is a book written based on his life struggles as a basketball player, as an IBM staff and how he changed from where he was to a better place and position by changing his attitude.
The book is aimed at the average person and teaches how to achieve anything by first changing your attitude. I know there are different books on attitude and with different mind-blowing concepts on this scope. I believe what makes his unique is the 10 life-changing simple steps he devised in turning attitude into action. This book will provide you with all the answers you need in changing your attitude for good. There are three questions according to him; we should ask when we are faced with a negative attitude.
Is it permanent?
Is it pervasive?
Is it personal? and after answering those questions, we’ll be left with no choice but to change that attitude.
