50 Words to Your Dreams Chapter 40 Become by Michael George Knight

Chapter 40: Become


Become simply means begin to be. Begin to become the person you envision yourself to be in the future. Don’t fake it till you make it, work at it until you are it. Develop yourself with all your unique talents and gifts that make you who you are. Become the best version of yourself not only for you but for others. Becoming the best version of yourself is the best thing you can do for yourself and the best gift you can give others. Becoming better than your previous self and becoming all that you can be enables others to become all that they can be and on and on growth continues.


Each year you should be shedding your skin of your old self and be morphing into the new you. Like a caterpillar transforming into a butterfly, completely changing from your old self into the new. Life is always becoming, with an ever-new present moment giving us the opportunity to become what we want to be. The present moment being a gift gives you the opportunity to become a better person and walk a different path. Leaving the past behind and forging ahead into the future to become whatever you want to be.



Becoming more than you are so you can fill the cups of others is a core principle in the evolution of the human species. Without the minority of the few becoming more than they are to lift the majority of many to higher heights we wouldn’t have the society we have and enjoy. Becoming more than you are by achieving as much as you can, learning as much as you can to educate others, creating more than you need to give to others, earning more to give more. Everyone benefits when you become more than you are. Nobody benefits when you become less than can be, nobody benefits from poverty, nobody benefits from negativity. The world right now needs more people becoming their very best, chasing and achieving their dreams, filling their cups up to overflow into the lives of others for the betterment of humanity.
