The next time you feel the need to pretend to be someone you’re really not…
Remind yourself not to get caught up in that game. Stop trying to please everyone else and start living your very best life by following these 7 tips:
Tip 1) Be Patient
Remember that true success is becoming the best version of yourself. It’s not about being better than anyone else, so don’t change who you are to please others.
Be patient and the right people will come into your life… they’ll be pulled toward your energy and they’ll love the REAL you!
Tip 2) Be True To Yourself
Your journey is different than everyone else’s, and only you know what’s best for YOU. So it’s important that you live your life consistent with your values and aspirations. Dare to express yourself and allow your uniqueness to shine through 🙂
When this happens, you’ll not only be affected by other people’s opinions or expectations, you’ll be happy and satisfied with being yourself.
Tip 3) Be Responsible For Your Own Actions
Take ownership of the choices you’ve made and the experiences that have brought you to this point in your life right now. Don’t let others measure your worth by telling you what you’re capable of or not.
Know that you have the power to change your current situation and the way you think about life. And when you fully embrace this, you’ll realize that you have complete control in achieving your goals!
Tip 4) Enjoy The Ride
As you work toward your goals, don’t let the need to prove yourself to others distract you from getting what you want. Life isn’t a race, so make sure you enjoy the ride rather than having it all fly by in a blur.
Opportunities for smiles, laughter and real growth happen every single day… it’s just up to you to notice and cherish them 🙂
Tip 5) Forget About Being Perfect
Mistakes are our biggest teachers, so don’t be afraid of failing in front of others. If you fall, pick yourself up and keep going. If you’re trying to be perfect all of the time to impress others, chances are that you’ll be missing the most important lessons of your life.
Those who take chances are the ones who continually grow and learn 🙂
Tip 6) Stop Trying To Please Everyone
Have you ever noticed that people always seem to have their own opinions regardless of what you do? And truth be told, it really doesn’t matter what others think…
The important thing is that you’re at peace with your own choices. Your decisions should fulfill you and the people who really care about you will support you as well.
Try to remember that the relationships that truly matter, are the ones that makes you a better person without trying to change you into something that you’re not.
So stop seeking validation from others, when at the end of the day, the only opinion that matters is YOURS 🙂
Tip 7) Invest In Yourself
What really counts is not what you’ve learned by reading this, it’s how you apply the knowledge. So take action!
It’s okay to start small, so start now by choosing one of the 7 tips above and practice working on it every single day. Then begin adding a new one every week or every month and soon you’ll realize that your daily practice has turned into a habit.
“Thank Dear Kristen,
When it comes to this idea of “Pleasing other people” it is important to remember a few things…
1. You will never make everyone happy.
2. What someone else thinks of you has nothing to do with you.
3. Making yourself happy is a gift to yourself and to the ENTIRE world.
I believe in you and am excited for your authentic self to come to life!
