The world detects how you feel about yourself and o\en simply shares the opinion you have about who you are. Be yourself and free yourself in the process. You are an individual who is unique. a Your talents and abilities, your intelligence and interests, your opinions and tastes, make you who you are. There is no need to hide a part of yourself or alter a part of yourself for the sake of conformity. True success is about freedom and all truly successful people are individualists who have, more or less, accepted and glorified who they are. You should do the same.

At the same time, being yourself does not mean glorying in mediocrity. You need to be the very best version of yourself possible. This means that you have to work at being you. You have to put the time into self-improvement. Acceptance is not an excuse for laziness, cowardice or fear. Life is a privilege. It is a gift. The gift and the privilege of life is that you get to be yourself, the best self you can possibly be. Use the gift, take advantage of the privilege that you’ve been given. Don’t squander the chance. Let your own unique light shine forth. This is the light that will illuminate the path to real success in life. It will also be the light that attracts other people to you.

The soldier came forward and let him get his nose under the bishop’s sword. Stunned bishop. Everyone is speechless.
The bishop’s conscience was thrilled. The bishop threw down his sword and said,
“Blessed is the general, blessed is this brave soldier, and blessed is your Muhammad, in whose great ideals a noble, generous, fearless and strong man like you has been formed. There is no doubt that it is wrong to disrespect the image of Jesus Christ, but it would be even more wrong to dismember this beautiful and living body today. I also salute that great ideal prophet. ”
