“You were made to fill a purpose that only you could do, so there can never be a more beautiful you.” ~ More Beautiful You by Jonny Diaz

What or who do you give the power to define you? What impossible standards have you set for yourself to accomplish? Where does your definition of accomplishment, beauty and worth come from? If your answer to those questions is not you… then you’re not alone. In fact, I am willing to bet that 99.9% of the people in this world use something or someone other than themselves to define what success and value looks like.

We live in a world of comparison. Comparing ourselves to the fake glamor we see in television, movies, Facebook, and Instagram, or even comparing ourselves to our co-workers, friends, leaders and family members. It becomes really easy to beat ourselves up over what we don’t have or who we aren’t instead of accepting the fact that our purpose in this world is ours alone. There can literally never be another you…

How powerful is it to tell yourself, “There will never be another me!” Embrace exactly who you are in this very moment. You were made to fulfill a beautiful purpose. Stop looking at other people’s journeys as your measure of success. Their journey was never meant to be yours, nor do you want their journey. You have no idea what struggles they have gone through to get to this very moment, so stop borrowing their life. Live your best life because no one else can live it for you. Be you, embrace you, love you, own and live your journey!

My challenge to you is to believe and live in this statement: “I am the only me this world will ever see, and I owe it to this world to rock my journey and show people my light.”
