Be Yourself

Our time on earth is limited. As the famous quote by Steve Jobs goes, “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.” His quote has inspired me, and I believe it has inspired others.

The reason is we all, or at least most, have had a moment where we have tried to be more like others. We put ourselves down because we aren’t like another person we see as “perfect.” Like it says, we are wasting our little time on someone else. We see these models or these Hollywood stars and think, “Wow, I wish I could be as special as them.”  “I wish I was as talented as them.” You are. That is the truth. You can be unique if you choose to be.

If you’re constantly putting yourself down, you’ll never get to where you want to be. In our short time, work hard to be the person you believe yourself to be. THAT is how you get to where you want to be! THAT is how you be special. Never waste your time on someone else. Those people probably got where they are today by simply believing in themselves.

In conclusion, this quote is saying don’t waste your time trying to be someone else and trying to be like them. Be who you are. If you spend the remainder of your life trying to be like others, then you are wasting your short life. So go be you!
