My good friend told me about a television program he used to watch when he was a kid that encouraged self-esteem. While having a conversation he told me he likes to teach people what he learned as a kid through the famous last words at the end of every episode. The captain would say, “Be somebody important, be yourself.” The first time he said that I fell in love with that statement. It is amazing how powerful a few simple words can be.
Many of us go through life doing what our friends do, what celebrities do, what our parents do or what society tells us to do. They never stop to think about what they really want to do or what actually makes them happy. If you keep doing what others are doing eventually you will tire out and you will have little energy left to discover what’s missing in your life. When that happens you will be forced to find a second wind and get busy working on being yourself.
There is nobody more important than you. Get to know yourself so that you can get to be yourself. There is nobody in the world like you. People want to know you, so let them be blessed with the power you possess. You are beautiful, powerful, and unstoppable. You are a VIP!
Knowing you are important…Now That’s Presidential!
