Staying true to who you are is important for your personal happiness, success and growth. Throughout the course of your life, you will surely encounter situations that will test that. Staying true to yourself gains you personal integrity, confidence, happiness and self-respect. Respecting yourself will gain respect from others as well.
Because we do not possibly know what the outcome of life will be, being committed to doing the best in each situation you are in is key to gather more positive and fulfilling experiences. This attitude leads to a magic and beautiful life unfolding in front of you. It's like stepping stones. Each stone gets you to a new place, adds new perspectives and a new experience. You have to choose to move your feet, one by one by following your internal wisdom. You have to keep focus and keep on trying.
Examining your own values is important. Why do you believe certain things? Is what you believe the highest good for you and for all? Beliefs can be altered as we learn, for a belief is attitude that something is the case or true, often times something you have been conditioned to think or feel or have repeated to yourself over and over. Honour yourself and others, act with integrity always.
Though there are many obstacles in so many situations or within certain achievements, having focus, staying committed to the positive and never giving up are tried and tested methods to achieve what you want all through being true to you. When you are true to you, you honour the universe.
