Becoming the Best of Yourselves

The choice is simple. You can either embrace your true self or be a second-rate version of somebody else –Pretty Good stories blog, Markus Almond.

Hello friends!Being yourself and letting go of the bogus priorities, that we hold on to unnecessarily, is the key to the peace of mind which we often yearn for, and blame others for its absence. For this week’s post, I have gathered a couple of quotations as a push towards not only being yourself, but the best version of yourself. So, here goes!

1) The greatest challenge in life is discovering who you are. The second greatest is being happy with what you find -Anonymous

2) If no one responds to your call, be not afraid to walk alone – Anonymous

3) It's better to deserve honours and not have them than to have but not deserve them - Mark Twain

4) If you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.

5) Holding a grudge against someone is letting someone live rent free in your head -Anonymous

6) Forgive others, not because they deserve forgiveness, but because you deserve peace -Jonathan Lockwood Huie

7) Peace is not the absence of violence but the presence of justice – Martin Lurther King

8) The only way to doing great work is to do what you love -Steve Jobs

9) Look at how a single candlelight can both defy and define the darkness –Anne Frank

10) "I can’t imagine if anyone can say ‘I’m weak’ and then remain so. After all, if you know it, why not fight against it? Why not try to train your character? The answer was ‘Because, it is so much easier not to!’ –Anne Frank

And, another quote by Anne Frank! I personally find her words most relatable.

11) People can keep telling you to keep your mouth shut, but it does not stop you from having your own opinion –Anne Frank

12) The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are -Joseph Campbell


13) The good news is that you don't know how great you can be. How much you can love. What you can accomplish. And what your potential is -Anne Frank
