How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but to be someone. –Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel
You can go around in life living up to societal ideals of what you are supposed to be; you can focus all your attention on being the best at something; or you can just become someone of great worth–to yourself.
Too many times in life, people focus on how they appear on the outside to others. The greatest people focus on how the feel on the inside and on their character attributes. If you want to “be” someone, be strong enough to let your true personality shine through.
