Be Yourself

I receive daily inspirational emails from the business guru Seth Godin, and this morning’s caught my eye:

“Be yourself, everyone else is taken.”

I don’t agree with Oscar Wilde on this one.

In fact, almost no one else is taken, not in the business world or in life. You definitely can’t (and shouldn’t) be someone who already exists, but the number of slots left is infinite.

Each of us can work to become the person we seek to be. A better version of the person we are right now.

Cultivate your gifts and curiosities, get clear on your why, and feed that courage muscle.

Let’s get to work on being ourselves very well and everyone wins.x
