How can you be yourself?

Here’s an interesting quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson:

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”

You can read plenty of articles online that simply tell you to “be yourself”.

Yet, what exactly does this mean?

It’s not as clear cut as it should be and it leaves room for vague generalizations such as “follow your passion” and similar type of sentences which don’t mean anything.

Actually, to “be yourself” is nothing more than being well connected to your own Will.

This is as far of a generalization as it can be and has a very precise feeling and route to get there.

When you are connected to your Will and you act accordingly to it, then you can really “be yourself” since your actions and behaviors come from an internal place connected to a higher source as opposed to being manipulated by the outside.

The problem is that most people have no connection to their own Will.

They live in the world like a leaf in the wind… just going where it blows.

Hence it’s easy for someone else – whether an actual person or a piece of software or the internet or TV – to influence these people.

If there’s no strong Will, then the person is easily manipulated. There’s no control over their own mind and behaviors.

I’m sure you can agree that our modern world it’s a lot more manipulative than the 1800’s when Ralph Walso Emmerson lived.

If on those days he was already arguing that “the world is constantly trying to make you something else”, just imagine if he lived in the present moment, where we are constantly glued to a screen and using apps that have a sole purpose of capturing our attention.

It’s harder than ever to create a powerful Will connection.

But all hope is not lost.

You can still live in the modern world – with all the advantages that it brings – without being caught up in the manipulation trap.

To connect with your own Will and actually “be yourself”, we have a precise step by step training course. It’s called 10 Steps to Inner Power and it focuses precisely on establishing this connection with your Will.
