How to Be Yourself

My father never approved of me. It didn’t matter that I won awards, skipped 8th grade, graduated a year early and still graduated second in my class, was a National Merit Scholar and got full scholarships to college. No matter what I did or how many awards I won, my old man made it clear that nothing I did was good enough.

My older brother, however, had a different upbringing. In my father’s eyes, my older brother could do no wrong.

Did that affect me at all? Of course it did!

I ended up being a people-pleasing nice guy in a vain attempt to get my old man’s approval. Needless to say, it didn’t work.

Not only did it not work, it also made me miserable – to the point that I decided to commit suicide at age 25. Only by a miracle at the very last moment did I make the decision not to take my own life.

What I learned from that experience was…

It sucks to not be yourself.

What It Means to Be Yourself

To learn how to be yourself means 3 things:

  1. Understand who you really are.
  2. Accept yourself for who you are.
  3. Stop trying to please everyone else.

I founded in my college dorm room in 1997 with $800 and a book on how to do html.

One of the main reasons I started my coaching company was to change the way the personal growth industry delivers training, information and experiences.

A big part of that has meant helping my coaching clients to be themselves.

Since then, my clients have added more than $100 million in sales – you can see just a few of our client success stories at

Why It’s So Important to Be Yourself

Have you ever noticed that when you try to be someone else, it doesn’t work anyway?

And when you allow yourself to be yourself, good things happen?

Imagine not having to be someone else…

Not having to pretend to be something you’re not…

Not having to hide Who You Really Are.

That feeling may be the ultimate expression of Personal Freedom.

Bottom line: When you stop trying to be something or someone you’re not, your stress level goes down and you feel a lot happier.

How to Be Yourself

  1. Decide to be yourself, no matter what other people think.
  2. Stop trying to please everyone else.

Contrary to popular belief, you can’t actually “make other people happy.”

Other people can be happy or not. It’s really up to them.

Let go of your need to make others happy. When you’re with other people, do this instead:

  1. Ask yourself, “What would I really like to do now?”
  2. Then ask: “What would a confident person do in this situation?”
  3. Then do that thing that’s a combination of you and the confident version of you.

3. Surround yourself with Loving Mirrors – people who believe in you.

The term Loving Mirror was first popularized in my book Permission to Succeed®, published by the Chicken Soup for the Soul publisher.

Since then, I’ve taught tens of thousands of people how to engage their Loving Mirrors through a process called The Power Habits® of Unconsciously Successful People.

Use these simple steps as a guide on how to be yourself.

Just imagine…

  • Not holding yourself back from being yourself…
  • Having more time freedom to do the things you want to do…
  • Getting your foot off the brake in your life, love and career…
  • Not working yourself to the bone, sacrificing family and friends…
  • Not stopping yourself  from reaching your personal and financial goals
  • Not beating yourself up any more
  • Feeling the inner peace and self-confidence that highly successful people do
  • Having more impact, influence, and income
  • Living the life you dream of

Now you may find that being yourself is an important goal of yours.
