Unleash Your Potential: Embracing Your Power and Becoming Who You Want to Be

Being authentic these days might be challenging. We are inundated with messages about how and what we ought to be conducting our lives. In addition, fitting into this socially constructed "model" can be exhausting at times and cause us to somewhat lose who we are. You have probably experienced this at some point.


That's the reason I chose to write this piece. These are just a few of the realizations I have gained over the past few years that allowed me to reclaim the life I always wanted and let go of society's expectations.

Make more time for yourself.


Sit with yourself and simply be yourself. Get to know yourself as you'd talk to a friend. Spend some time understanding yourself, including your hobbies, values, and passions. Think about what really motivates and excites you. This self-awareness will allow you to better connect your goals with your true self.


Discover your desires, values, and passions. Accept your strengths, own your flaws, and recognize that both contribute to your uniqueness.



Take a self-discovery journey to become who you want to be. Visualize the person you want to become. Create a vivid image of your ideal identity, where aspirations and reality intersect. Define your goals with clarity, detail, and purpose. Set ambitious but achievable goals to move you ahead on this transformative path.


Seek knowledge, develop skills, and expand your horizons. Accept obstacles as opportunities for progress, and see setbacks as stepping stones to success. With every stride forward, you become closer to your ideal self.



Surround yourself with the right people!


Surround yourself with open-minded friends that accept you for who you are. Create a network of people who will support and inspire you. Connect with others who share your ambitions or have already attained what you want to be.


Stop trying to please other people.


Don't let your desire to please others determine everything you do or say. If we want to be who we are intended to be, we must cease seeking external affirmation for our activities.

Instead, appreciate the good you have done and the actions you have taken. You'd be shocked at how much of ourselves we disregard.


Do something!


It takes action to change from who you are to who you want to be. Divide your objectives into manageable chunks and persistently work toward them. Accept the discomfort that comes with venturing beyond your comfort zone. Take initiative and remain dedicated to your path.


Remain True to Yourself


Stay loyal to who you are and what you stand for throughout your journey. Do not evaluate yourself against others. Accept your individuality and allow it to come through in all you do; your path is distinct. Accept the strength of openness and allow your authentic self to be seen in all of your relationships, creations, and acts. By being true to yourself, you encourage others to follow after.


Understand that changing into the person you want to be takes a lifetime. Savor the trip and be proud of the changes as you move on.
