“How brave is it to be authentically you!”
Being the best version of yourself isn’t as simple as you might want to think. We play different roles and therefore, have many different layers to self. We act and speak differently and need different things based on the role we act out at any given moment or day. So, the question is which self are you referring to when you talk about the best version? Little You and Big you are the two selves you have to contend with to truly understand what being the best version of yourself really means. Little You and Big You are terms I first came across in Eckhart Tolle’s book, A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose. He describes Little You as the pestering little ego yearning for attention and Big You as the worthy assured sense of self. I unravel Little You and Big You and we wrap up this episode discussing simple solutions to you being all the you that you were created to be.
