In a world where people are so easily influenced, we must remain true to who we are. No two people are the same. Everyone has a unique personality. The older you are the more you learn about yourself. We should spend most of our time and energy trying to figure out who we are. I am not saying not to be influenced by people but you have to realize that the person influencing you, their reality and your reality isn't the same. You cant try and live the life that someone else is living. You have to get in your own boat and row down this river of life. When you see things that inspire you, take those things and apply them into your own life. You aren't conforming into that person, you are simply enhancing your life. When you get your car painted, the only thing that changes is the outside, the inside of the car remains the same. The same is true when you receive inspiration and imply it to your life. You may have changed some things you are doing but on the inside you should still be the same person. Too many people are trying to be something that they see on tv or the internet. Trying to live a life that is not fit for them. We all have a plan and a road that we have to travel down in our life. Our job is to realize what our purpose is and to fulfill that purpose. It starts first and foremost with being you!
