Note to Self #1: Be Who You Want

Are you who you want to be?

Who do you want to be? This you should know. Who do you admire the most? You know, that person you think is awesome? The one you wish you could be?

Yeah. That person is probably a lot like the person you want to be.
So be that person.

Do it.

"Be" is a verb, right? An action. And a person, what is that? A person is a body and a list of actions. Yeah, yeah, there's thoughts, feelings, ideas, beliefs, loves, fears - whatever. Your ideal self wouldn't conflict with those things, so don't worry about them.

Act like the person you want to be, and that is who you will be.

You wanna be the _____ type? The kind of person who always _____ and never _____?
Do what they do, because that's what defines who they are.

Stop wishing.
