Psychology Has It Backwards

Episode 79: Just Be You

Sydney Banks always told people, “Just be you. Just be ordinary.”  Many people thought he was advising mediocrity.  But he was not.  He was advising understanding that each one of us is born with the power to think our way through the life we can imagine; no two people are alike.  It doesn’t help us to compare ourselves to others or to aspire to be more like x-person we admire.  Just relaxing into our own being and understanding that what we all have in common as human beings is that we are each creating our own separate realities.  No one is special; everyone has the same beauty, resiliency, and power to change from within, and infinite potential.  Being the ordinary human being we each are is extraordinary.
