No one can make you feel inferior without your consent – Eleanor Roosevelt

This is a really perturbing situation in society nowadays, I mean it’s so alarming the way people let
thoughts of others get to them, the way people are guided by what the society has to say about them. All
I wish is that people can know and understand their worth even if others don’t. Because really, that’s
what matters most. The way you see yourself, and not the way others see you. You’re not in this world
to live up to anybody’s expectation! It’s so disheartening to see young girls and guys hustling and trying
to “feel among”, they go out of their way to ensure they’re living up to others expectation. They want to
be doing the “in” thing, I am not saying we shouldn’t be up-to- date and all but if you can’t handle it,
don’t, don’t bother.
I want to remind us that all fingers are not equal, we were made different and we should act so. Be
yourself, believe in yourself in the way no one else can, self doubt kills more dreams than failure ever
will. Criticism is just someone else’s opinion, even people who are experts in their fields are sometimes
wrong. It is up to you to believe some of it, none of it or all of it. What you think is what counts. Don’t
be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth. The moment you
doubt yourself you cease to be able to do whatever forever, so just look up to yourself! There’s no limit
to what you can achieve except the limits you place by your own self. Believe you can and you’re
halfway there, I do not believe in taking the right decision, I take a decision and make it right! If being
an egomaniac means believing in what you do, that is, in your art, music, acting, anything at all, then
just be an egomaniac. As soon as you trust yourself you’ll know how to live. You are who you are, no
more and no less.
Dear friends, there’s nothing as beautiful as yourself and no matter how much you try to be someone
else it’ll never happen. Have you even realised that when you finally try to settle to yourself and do your

own thing it always turns out wonderful and pretty much fulfilling? Always. As maturing adults and
future leaders of tomorrow, I’m sure we all have that one aim in life whether its a business plan or
whatever, there’ll be challenges definitely but always remember backing out isn’t the answer, look on
the brighter side of life, pursue your ambition painstakingly, never give up without a fight and don’t lose
focus, mistakes are meant to be learnt from.
At any given point you can release your greatest self. Don’t let anyone hold you back. Don’t let anyone
dilute you. Don’t be peer-pressured into being less than you are. People being willing to dilute
themselves for the sake of others is the greatest tragedies of our time. Stop letting others define and set
the pace for your life. Get out there and be your best. Do your best. Live your best. Make everyday
count and you’ll see how exponentially more exciting, thrilling, successful, happy and full your life will
This is basically my opinion on this topic and beyond lol (cos I know I went pretty deep). If you have
