Summary of “Don’t Change Yourself. Improve Yourself.”

You might know yourself, but you’re not BEING yourself.
The reason is that we somehow feel we have to be different people in different situations.
“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
We really live in a world that tries to turn you into something you’re not.
Too often people just try to rebel and say that other people don’t get them.
“The conclusion bears repeating: Do not try to change yourself - you are unlikely to succeed. But work hard to improve the way you perform.”
Who do you NOT want to be? The whole ‘do not try to change yourself’ idea took me many years to apply in my life.
Because that’s one of the few things in life that’s really worth it.
