Change For Yourself

By Evan Sanders

When we finally start to believe in ourselves, what we are capable of, and who we are as people down to our core we develop this iron belief that allows us to stay true in a sea of criticism.

Imminent disaster is only apparent when a woman or man builds himself on the compliments or falls on the criticisms of others. When this happens, their character is created by the thoughts and opinions of those around them instead of deep belief and will.

If you want to be yourself in this world you also have to have some thick skin.

For no real reason at all the wolves will come out after you and attempt to tear you and your reputation to shreds. Similarly, the people around you may compliment you with hollow praise and attempt to bring your ego up. If we fall into allowing both these tactics to define us, we can quickly end up in a world of hurt.

So what's the solution?

Trust. Deep trust. We must trust in ourselves and who we are.

While this is undoubtedly one of the toughest things we have to work on it's also one of the most beneficial lessons you can ever learn in life. No matter what, when the problems and praise come, can still maintain who you are. The temptations of life will attempt to make you change who you are into what the world wants you to be. Don't. Be uniquely you always.

When you decide to make a change in your life, do it for yourself. Change because it's something that you've always wanted to do and it matters to you. Don't do it for anyone else. Don't do it because a magazine told you to do it. Do it because it's part of your vision and your purpose.

Because if you change for yourself and were the captain of your own ship, there's nothing to regret at the end of your life. If you stay true to yourself and who you are, you could always keep your head held high.

So believe in yourself enough to change, and when you do, do it for yourself.
