Never Pretend: Do the Best You Can

Never Pretend: Do the Best You Can

Never be who you are not

Never Pretend

Never pretend!
You can’t hold a false impression for too long.
What makes you think you will not get tired someday of trying to impress people by being who you are not?
You have a true identity.
There is something that makes you tick.
You have your true passions and abilities.
Certain things distinguish you from others and make you exceptional.
Why focus on the things that trigger others.
Why try to appear nicer than you really are so that people can tolerate you.
Why not rather become the best of yourself so that people can celebrate you.
Nobody else can be a better you than you, that is why it is best to remain original.
Why pretend, when you are better at being yourself than anybody else can?
You are king when it comes to being you.
You have your ideals and your dreams. Stick to them. Pursue them!
Develop yourself!
Do the best you can.
Work towards achieving your own goals.
Keep dreaming your own dreams and carving your own path.
Align with those that share your values and tag along with those that encourage your dreams.
Certain people love you for who you are and enjoy you for being yourself.
You will never need to pretend around such people. Identify them and use their encouragement as leverage.
Why force yourself to stay in an uninspiring environment, only to please someone who feels you are no good?
Why plead for admiration and borrow to impress, in an environment where you are considered worthless?
It is only with time that you will either end up being a complete duplicate of someone else, or get discarded as trash.
Rather than pretend; do the best you can!

Use What You Have

Do The Best You Can

You have your own unique perspectives, passions and abilities.
You will definitely interpret life in your own unique way.
Rather than pretend; do the best you can.
If someone identifies you for being you, it is almost impossible for such a person to get fed up of you.
If you are loved for being yourself, being the best of yourself will fetch you even more love.
That way, you will keep getting happier and more fulfilled with the company you have and the satisfaction you enjoy.
Don’t pretend to be accepted. Rejoice when you are rejected for being yourself. Keep being yourself until you are identified by those that love you for who you are.
Those who love you for who you are will sincerely inspire you and bring out the best in you.
Why pretend when you have better chances at doing the best you can?
You can only learn to do better when you have at least done your best.

When you know better, you'll do better

Do The Best You Can

What makes you believe that it is only in that little space where you find yourself right now, that you can find endorsement, approval and encouragement?
If nobody appreciates you right there, there may just be some better place.
Have you not realized that your conversations may be more interesting with certain people than others?
Has it not occurred to you that moments shared with certain people gives you more fulfillment than those shared with certain other people?
The same way some people appear more interesting and relevant to you, people’s perspective of you vary from person to person.
Life is more fun when it’s shared with people that enjoy you.
You can’t find out who truly enjoys you for being yourself, if you have never picked up the courage to be yourself.
Games are enjoyed in the playing.
If life is a game, would you deprive yourself the fun of playing for fear of losing?
If you find your right game, you will definitely find people to play with, and whether you win or lose, you will be happy.
Life’s trophy may not necessarily be material possessions or money, but the joy, satisfaction and fulfillment that comes from sharing happy moments with those that appreciate you.
In life, you must dare to explore new grounds, because that is the key to unlock your long awaited dreams.
Make the necessary changes that will give you the mileage you desire in life.
Be bold to make that move!
As you move, stick with what works and lighten yourself of the burden of the stuffs that don’t work.
Hold on to those that love you and keep becoming the best of yourself.
Position yourself in your place of relevance and your prominence will be inevitable.
Only then will you be able to attract true fans effortlessly.
Be the best of yourself, enjoy the comfort of your own skin, align with those that value you and quit pretending.
Take the bull by the horn and dare to play life’s game to the fullest!

Never let the fear of striking out

Playing The Game

About teeceecounsel

Who am I really? Can that be defined yet? Probably by the time I'm long gone and all the pieces of my activities are compiled and analysed then you can know what you want to know about me. Meanwhile, I write. Not because I love writing but because I love people. I love to care and love to share. I'm a deep thinker and I love to believe in the impossible. The ideal is attainable and a shot at it must be given. Don't say 'It won't work' rather ask 'how will it work? Nobody is ever doomed unless they made the choice. To resist good and to adopt evil is already doom. To loose hope is to choose doom but to believe that every step is a passing phase leading towards your hope is to choose progress. I may go on and on but my posts say it all. I don't force you to agree, I only say enjoy!

    Very thought provoking and timely piece in a world where identity is so relevant to wealth, social status, fame or some other superfluous object/identifier. Being our best “human” free of those chains of identification is something many of us still strive for and this is a good reminder to stay the course. 🙂

    • Thanks for expressing your thoughts, I resonate with you on those.
      Sometimes, we need to be reminded of who we are and where we are going.
      We often get distracted or even confused when we look outward in excess.
      Many cheers!

  2. Thought provoking and inspirational !! I needed to read something like that in the present moment in time. Thank you 🙂

  4. Do the best you can.

    I always try to do this in all things. It is not an obsession with perfection but a sense of craftsmanship to display my best effort. I know my limits and if not perfect I take consolation that I did not cut corners and was lazy. If I have to do something over, I will. Most of my cartoons have been redone many times and I still see room for improvement on others.

    • That’s a great approach to life.
      Innovation and improvement simply comes from doing something better than it has always been done.
      When we do our best, we maximise our potentials and increase our capacities.
      It works like building muscles.
      We must reach our limits, before we can exceed them.
      Thanks for sharing your lovely perspective!

  5. So inspirational and much room for thought. 🙂

  6. Hi Son, I have been having problems with WordPress Notifications, I was wondering if you received my comment on ” Confession: It is worth it, but I am Afraid ” please let me know as it is not like you not to respond to comments.

    Blessings – Granny Annie

    • I received your comment, my dear Grannie Annie.
      It was quite elaborate and rich.
      I did not want to respond in a hurry, so I deferred responding and got carried away.
      I’m so sorry it has lingered this long.
      Forgive my manners, Grannie.
      I will get back to it and continue from where I stopped, right away!
      You always mean much.
      Regards to Ron.
      Remain blessed!

  7. As I shared before Son, it was concern that you may not of received my comment the same as some other Bloggers, thank you for responding now, it is appreciated.

    Yes Son , lets get real…..Jesus tells us when we follow Him, He indwells us and so we will be hated, ignored, abused and we could even be put to death, not for doing wrong but for doing what is good, just like He was, are we willing to carry His cross or is it all about us.

    Galatians 2: 20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who Loved me, and gave Himself for me.(KJV)

    Do we put God and others first or ourselves, do we share His Truth regardless of the cost to us personally and the consequences it brings as we see confirmed in the Scriptures below and do we warn others in the Body of Christ who sin or do we worry about rejection and so just look the other way, letting Satan get a foothold in their lives and also risking polluting others in the Church and themselves.

    John 15:17-19 These things I command you, that ye Love one another. If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

    Does it cost being a Christian…… in some Countries today it costs your life or rejection from your family and friends and as we approach Christs return, this could happen to any of us especially when the Beast takes control World wide, we can already see the beginnings of this, which we were warned about by Jesus and in Revelation.

    Luke 21:16-18 And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for my Name’s sake.

    1 John 3:1 Behold, what manner of Love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the Sons/ Daughters of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew Him not.

    Yes let’s get real Son – Christian Love Always – Grannie Annie.
