Do not judge your abilities by other’s opinions-

The inner beauty concept, starts with “You“. What you think about yourself is more important than what others think about you. The biggest mistake we do in our life is that, we give importance to others opinions for our existence. The true inner beauty concept is to feel good about yourself with or without validations from others.

Do not try to fit in, when you are borne to stand out

What made the duckling sad was, she tried to fit in to the group, she was surrounded with. As we all do at some point of our life. Our surrounding make a huge impact in our life. Where you are borne, what kind of people are influencing your life. What have been taught to you everyday. All these things impact our thought process and eventually build our personality. The true inner beauty concept here trying to tell us- if you try to be like others in order to be accepted- ” You will loose the Essence of your life”. Everything on earth have a purpose. When you do not accept what you exactly are, you get deviated from your life’s purpose.

Do not beg for attention, be your own role model

Life begins, when you come out of your mother’s womb. But You Start living when you find out, Why you are Borne. You are certainly not borne to impress others or follow what others want you to do. You are borne to be “YOU”. The duckling was sad, not because who she was but because she lost her individuality to fit in to a tribe, who are constantly criticizing her.

The worse thing you could do to yourself is to loosing yourself in the process to get other’s acceptance. The inner beauty concept says-Instead of trying to fit in, try to make your own individuality shine. you might became a role model to others, who are going through the same kind of pain.

People criticize the thing, they do not understand

The duckling was criticized because of her appearance as her tribe was unware of swan. The important fact is people most often find it hard to accept something which they do not understand or rationalize. Whether it is the duckling, Mowgli or Tarzan, they all faced discrimination and criticism. But none of those criticism were rational, its rather a lack of knowledge or some kind jealousy that provoke people to not accept something they do not understand.

The inner beauty concept say- the best way to deal with such irrational criticism is to walk away, stay away and do not let others to bi-little you by any means.

The challenges supposed to make you stronger not weaker. Having Patience will improves your ability to accept setbacks and enjoy life much more. “Patience is not the ability to wait, but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting. ”There is a saying; “Good things come to those who wait.” but if you maintain calm while waiting, it will make your life easier and more enjoyable.

The Moment the duckling accept its reality, that she is different from others, she just open a new path to find her identity-Practice accepting your current circumstances. That new path lead her to her to a place, where see finds her true identity as beautiful swan.

The gist of it is, having patience through tough time and accepting your circumstances as stepping stone for a better outcome will lead you to greater success.
