Who are you?

A lot of things come to mind when asked this question. And no one can answer this question about you better than you.

Several events and experiences in life have helped to define us in so many different ways. These events shape the way we act, think, see ourselves, what we believe about ourselves, and even how we treat people around us.

People also try to make us believe what they think about us, and sometimes in a bid to please them; we lose who we are; we try to see ourselves as the world sees us, and we try to please the world.

Truth is, no one knows you as much as you know yourself, and no one can change you without your permission. The world can say or perceive anything about you, but the most important thing is what you think of yourself.

Self-belief is everything, you can do what you believe you can do, and you can be what you believe you can be. When you believe in yourself, you become powerful and energetic, when you know who you are, every other person’s perception of you is insignificant; you become unstoppable!

So stop looking or waiting for acceptance or validation from people. Believe in yourself, love what you do, give it your best, stay focused, seek wise counsel when needed. Just believe in yourself, and you will be unstoppable!
