One's first step in wisdom is to question everything - and one's last is to come to terms with everything.

Be the real you

Let life know who you are. If you have to hide yourself to get what you want, do you really even want it?

And while you’re at it, make sure you let yourself know who you are. Be absolutely honest and authentic, especially with yourself.

It’s easy to get what you want from life. The real difficult and essential work is figuring out what that is.

If you think it might be nice, that’s not enough. If it looks good on somebody else, that’s not enough.

What you truly want is what you dearly love. It is something that uniquely and elegantly expresses the real, live, passionate person you are.

You cannot find that or follow it by pretending to be who you’re not. Be the real you, all the time, and joyfully feel the flow of your own great abundance.

— Ralph Marston
