“No one is you and that is your power.” - Marie Forleo
យើងម្នាក់ៗមិនដូចគ្នាទេ។ យើងម្នាក់ៗខុសគ្នាទាំងអស់។ កុំព្យាយាមធ្វើអ្វីអោយដូចអ្នកដ៏ទៃ។ ធ្វើអ្វីៗដែលចេញពីភាពពិសេសរបស់អ្នក។
Each of us are not the same. Each of us are different. Don’t try to imitate other people. Do things that come from your own specialness.
When we see someone who is doing well in whatever they are doing, most of the time we want to be like that person, in term of popularity or success. It's OK to be inspired by someone and want to be successful like someone. However, to copy their style, their way of doing it, their personality, is not the way to do it. Have we ever seen any two persons exactly the same? No we don't. It never happened. It never will. Will the person who we are inspired by be successful if he/she copies another person, most likely not. We like them because s/he is unique and different from others. If s/he is the same as another we probably don't like anyway.
So if copying other is not the way to success, what are we going to do? Most of us do not feel confident in our ability to achieve whatever we want to do. We tend to look up to other people for inspiration. However we also have to be very careful who we ask for advice, because it will have great influence on how we will proceed. The ultimate factor in deciding how we will do in life is mostly in our hands with exception of the factors that we cannot control. We are the one who decide whether to sleep or wake up, to sit or standup, to watch TV or go to the gym, to eat that cake or eat that vegetable. Advice is not a bad thing, we just have to pick and choose the good ones. In the end we are totally responsible for our own decision, action and result.
Being ourself is the greatest thing you can do. However it is not the easiest thing to do either. We grow up learning to be polite, to respect other people, to be nice, and so on. Then we become programmed by that, and forget who we really are inside. We are afraid to speak up, because that would not be nice. We are afraid to say no, because that would be rude. We are afraid to argue, because that would make us not a likable person. The list goes on and on. Now because of fear of rejection, fear of not acceptance, we learn to seek for acceptance, seek approval from others. The higher the status of a person, the more we listen to them, because we think that they know or is better than us. Do they?
