"Just Be You": The Worst Advice Ever

Updated: May 21, 2020

"Just be you" three little words that can sound beautiful and inspiring or simply annoying.

First of all, let me confess...I don't think "just be you" is the worst advice ever. That is more of a catchy headline.

I do believe that "just be you" is not the greatest advice. It's superficial and it lacks a lot of details. It's like giving someone a golden key and telling them that the golden key will give them access to a lifetime of health and good fortune, while at the same time not giving them any clues where to find the door that the golden key will unlock.

Last year I attended a conference where the keynote speaker ended his speech with this line "whatever you do, just be you". I looked around the room and I could see that most people had no idea what to do with that statement.

Do you really know how to be you?

If you do, you are blessed, be sure to be grateful for that amazing gift every single day. For the rest of us that have not yet figured it out, we march on..

My focus in this blog is on the meaning of being yourself, how to know you are evolving into your true self, and what actions to take to get to know yourself better every day.

In order to provide meaning to the words "just be you", I will share with you my story of how I forgot how to be me.

If it resonates with you, my hope is that it will give you some awareness and guidance to find your path to self discovery.
