A couple days ago I included this in a morning note:
A friend immediately wrote back asking, What does this even mean? How can you help people define this for themselves?
So, I’m sharing how I interpret these sayings… (And feel free to share your thoughts also, I think we all have different explications)
BE YOU = I take this as staying true to your character, no matter what others are doing. Pretending to be someone else is exhausting, and isn’t sustainable.
DO YOU = Putting words into action. Everybody has good ideas, and talks the talk. DO means actually following through on the things you want to do in life. Permission granted!
FOR YOU = The more you feed your unique and individual needs, the better you will feel. Self care is necessary before you can help others (oxygen mask theory).
Cheers to a great day ahead!

The above approach will give one the motivation to press on his/her goals given the direction aligns to his/her value.
I think so too! Doing what everyone else is doing, or trying to be someone else, can be very unfulfilling.
Have a great weekend WTK!
