Who Are You? (Part One)

It doesn't take much to understand that one of the major challenges of this age is Identity Crises. It's saddening yet true that many don't know who they really are. Imitation and deception characterizes the lives of many in our world today.

Some of us don't know who or what we are. Worst still,  some live the lives others and society have crafted for them. However,  we should understand that the only person we can really become is our true "self" because 'everyone else is taken'

Consistency and Discipline are some of the "common denominators" of success. In essence, you'll hardly find a truly successful person who's not Consistent in one or a few undertakings.
