“My one regret in life is that I am not someone else.” – Woody Allen
Do you spend a lot of time wishing you were someone else? Why is that?
You know, the person you wish you were has problems too – just different ones.
But you can learn something from these thoughts…
No one wants little pieces of paper with dead presidents on them. They want what those pieces of paper will bring them. And chances are, you don’t want the life of your ideal person, you want to bring certain qualities that they possess into your life – wealth, fame, freedom, compassion, bravery, etc. This can be an excellent way to identify clues to what you really want out of life.
So think about this – what are those qualities that you want to attract into your life?
Besides, why be someone else, when you have so much experience being you? Start from there and grow. Then soon enough, there will be others wishing they were you…
