You have the power to easily become who you want to be. You see, you are already the person you’ve been dreaming about becoming.
As you take that in, it may sound confusing, but it’s completely true.
It’s just that you have a lot of layers on top of that ideal person that stops it from shining through. All you have to do is slowly but surely start letting go of the layers.
Letting go of them isn’t always easy because you’ve spent years accumulating all of it, and it’s designed to protect you from the “outside dangers.”
A good example of this is when we interact with someone and put on a façade because we think it will please the other person.
However, each time we do this, we move further and further away from who we truly are.
It takes significant effort for us to stay self-conscious and unhappy, but once you remove the layers, you become that person you want to be—just by removing the strategies that get in the way.
Once you accept this, you will discover a feeling of freedom that you’ve never experienced before.
