Be as You Wish to Seem – Socrates

Do you have a clear picture of the person you want to be?  Do your current thoughts, actions, and goals line up with that description?  So often, who we want to be is not in alignment with the reality of who our actions dictate we are.

Work today to develop a clearer picture of who it is you want to be.  What are the core values and beliefs you deem important, and would want to portray to others?  Are you thinking like someone who holds those beliefs?  Are you acting in a way that reflects those values?

This is not about pretending to be somebody you’re not, it’s about realizing that within you, you have the influence to be whoever you WANT to be.  It’s understanding that you hold the power of choice, and the ability to change your habits and your thinking starting right now if you wished.

Today, work to align the different areas of your life with this ultimate version of yourself, be as you wish to seem, and take back your power to direct your life.

  1. Beautiful. I like it a lot! Thank you.
    We are what we repeatedly do.

  2. Love this! We forget that it’s our little, daily actions that make a big impact over time and allow us to become the person we dream of being. Thank you!

  3. I want to be an entrepreneur and my daily habits match with my dream. So, I guess I am going in the right direction????. By the way nice and inspirational post.

  4. love this inspirational post! Thank you!- Kind regards and being me!! – K

  5. Great post! Very relevant to my current life status.

  6. Great post and advice as usual Matt!

  7. Thank you so much for this powerful message. It cuts straight to the core.

  8. Rings true for me, but its a daily struggle. My mother (and William Shakespeare) said, “To thine own self be true.” The state motto of North Carolina is, “Esse Quam Videri”, to be rather than to seem. Personal application means divorcing self righteousness and claiming my imperfections and brokenness. It goes back to your pointing the finger post. Its harder to judge others when I take an honest look in the mirror.

  9. Well said. Much emotional distress is from a discrepancy between what we think we are and what we think we should be. We choose our values, beliefs, goals, thoughts, and actions. We can change any of them that we don’t want. When they align, life is much easier.

  10. Dear The Seeds 4 Life,

    This is a very enlightening post. It is a firm and brilliant reminder to work smartly today to develop that clearer picture of whom we truly want to be.

    You have written excellent reality check questions and as a result of this post, I am energized to take back my power and further direct my life towards success and fulfillment. Have an awesome day, thanks for sharing!

  11. I know exactly who I am and what I want to be.
    I want to save the world from anger, fear, and negativity
    and educate how to wake up and be a life
    “Everyone will die, but not everyone will live “
