Why Being Yourself Won’t Make you Succeed

I've been sold for years that being myself will open the doors to a new world of possibilities, I was wrong and here's why.

Since I remember from baby school until one year ago, I’ve got this little inner battle trying to balance being myself but without harming anyone in my personal and professional journeys. The truth is that I always wanted to understand the success formula of those who are recognizable among the rest living a dreamed life and being unapologetic. What’s their secret?

Then I wouldn’t stop listening podcasts, watching webinars, videos, conferences and finally reading everything that was related to the law of attraction, self-awareness, aligned action. Well, basically everything and feeling at the start point every time like hitting with a wall.

Some weeks ago watching a video about the structure of a winner’s mindset, got the AHA moment I’ve been waiting for years and I am more than happy to share with you if you are ready to change your own beliefs. It’s not about being yourself but being your higher self instead.

I know, maybe you are a bit shocked by now. That’s why my mindset’s process wasn’t working at all because the main reason to achieve higher goals starts with a vision and practice of who you want to become as if already you are that person.

That’s the absolute explanation behind the law of attraction and the secret of manifesting your desires. Nothing to do with the “Fake it until making it”. Nope. Behaving as the higher self of yours is the key. How would your higher self think and feel today and tomorrow?

In the pursuit of happiness and fulfillment, there’s the successful person you will turn into and my advice is don’t think it’s a future away from you. It’s here right now breathing and living within you 24/7 and can be unlocked the same moment that you are ready to embrace this new and aware self.

I clearly understand that the foundation for attracting and reaching my goals is just a higher self mindset away from me and you’re capable to break old beliefs and adopt new ones that will allow to you to create your ideal life.
