Who Do You Want to Become?

There will be at least one point in our lives when we feel lost or unsure of who we are. Sometimes, this thought gets so consuming that we tend to embody what or who society wants us to become instead.

In the movie, Rango pretended he was a tough guy but was then exposed in the end. He leaves in shame and questions his abilities. But, he eventually gathers the courage to return and save the town from a water shortage. 

Like Rango, we may think that traveling or going to a new place might help us discover a little bit more about ourselves. But, we’ll never be able to do it if we pretend to be someone we are not. So, the best way to go is to stay authentic while seeking to improve!

Reflect on yourself and understand what makes you tick. By doing so, you’re already one step closer to living an authentic life.

With that, we hope this list of quotes was able to inspire you in one way or another. Keep in mind that we can pretend all we want, but the truth always comes out in the end. The only way to become a better version of ourselves is to stay true to who we are!

This belief was further amplified when I joined Quote Ambition. Through the quotes I’ve read, collected, organized, and written about, I found that humans are resilient, creative, and compassionate.
