Today's entry is simple, because it is about being simple.
In two words - be yourself.
In a few more words...
Be someone and something you decide to be. Be intent and be intense in the pursuit of that intent.
Be with and be like those who exemplify the qualities you desire, admire and want others to use in sentences that describe you.
Avoid situations, people, careers, and everything else that you don't want to become and that are not in line with those things that you do want to emulate.
Realize that no choice can still be a choice. Even 'not thinking' for a second, or failure to think about how being in certain situations can lead to unwanted impact or results - does not remove our ultimate control over these situations. Awareness is akin to intention when we have set a clear path we wish to travel.
Don't try to be everything to everybody. Don't worry about what others think.
Think about what you want, and what you are doing to get there.
Think about what you may be doing that is sabotaging your own journey, and change those behaviors.
Think about your relationships and every other aspect of your life... and make sure it is all aligned enough to feel simple to you.
After all, the path to success and happiness may involve hard work - but the road map is anything but rocket science.
