Imitating someone successful, who in many ways seems like us, can make life an enjoyable experience. Even if it is based upon an illusion or fantasy.
We all need our fantasies. At any age. It gives us the hope that we are on the right pathway for good things to happen. A future of personal ascension.
It is a pathway we would love to walk in much sooner than later.
Like the teen years.
If only we could be like Emma Chamberlain.
Emma is an American Internet personality.
She won the 2018 Streamy Award for Breakout Creator.
In 2019, Time Magazine included her on its TIME 100 Next list, and its list of The 25 Most Influential People On The Internet, writing that “Chamberlain pioneered an approach to vlogging that shook up YouTube’s unofficial style guide.”
Our Internet darling uploaded her first video to her YouTube channel on June 2, 2017. She posted videos almost daily during the summer of 2017. On July 27, 2017, she posted the video We All Owe The Dollar Store An Apology. It became the first video of hers to go viral and in August her channel rapidly gained subscribers, increasing from 4,000 on August 1 to 150,000 on August 30. Her channel then continued to gain approximately 100,000 new subscribers monthly through June 2018.
The adoring team at theatlantic.com smiles, “The most talked-about teen influencer in the world doesn’t airbrush her photos. All of this has gained the 18-year-old some 8 million YouTube subscribers and 7.7 million Instagram followers in less than two years; her YouTube channel is one of the fastest growing in the U.S., according to the company.”
She is a doer in the highest form of the word and she is doing it well, very early.
Emma even has a book.
Here is what Amazon proclaims, “Until now, it seemed like every planner was for “that perfect girl.” But what if you’re just muddling through? What if you’re kind of weird, a little obsessed, definitely silly, love art and fashion, and sometimes accidentally skip days or weeks or months in your planner but don’t want those pages to go to waste? Emma looked everywhere but could not find such a planner. So she decided to make one herself and share it with the world.
With guided journal pages, custom mood boards, puzzles, games, lists, corny quotes, cool designs, and silly messages from Emma, it’s a diary, scrapbook, guided journal, coloring book, and planner all in one. And because you fill in the dates you want, it never becomes outdated.”
That’s keeping it real and being very real.
In some circles they have coined the phrase, “Be Do Have”.
What does that mean?
We find an exceptional description at mike-robbins.com. The author shares, “I remember learning about the concept of “Be, Do, Have” for the first time about ten years ago. Most of us think we need to “have” a certain thing or set of things (more money, love, time, experience, etc.), so that we can finally “do” something important (pursue our passion, start a business, go on vacation, create a relationship, buy a home, etc.), which will then allow us to “be” what we truly want in life (peaceful, fulfilled, inspired, generous, in love, etc.).”
What should that mean for you, especially when you are young and seeking a pathway for success? We have a visiting female writer with some suggestions.

The Missing Ingredient to Success
By Vyara Bridgeman | Submitted On April 04, 2021,
There are many ingredients to success: talent, creativity and insight, hard work, patience and persistence, good luck and synchronicity, the right beliefs and attitude… Did I miss something? Oh yes – spiritual practice.
Of course you can lose weight, become a capable doctor or an excellent lawyer, and be a decent mother or a successful sports player simply by doing (studying, training, working, etc.). But are you going to have satisfaction around your success? How many people do you know that seem to have achieved it all and feel miserable at the same time: exhausted, underappreciated, over-worked, never good enough (despite surface appearances), never quite there, and sometimes even not sure if that’s the right thing to do and the right place to be. And then there are also those who seem to be doing all the right things and don’t even achieve apparent success, not even in the eyes of the others. Why?
The answer is because dissatisfaction runs together with an overemphasis on the doing. Remember the notorious phrase Be-Do-Have? If you skip the being and jump onto the doing, you never quite end up having (personal satisfaction, successful closure, peace and happiness). You keep doing and no matter what you achieve or produce, you feel you need to do more because… If you however go a step back and focus on the being, you will end up having all that you want and more.
The being step means that you have a spiritual practice around what you do and what you would like to have. That doesn’t mean you become superstitious or a religious fanatic. It means you spend time in meditation, introspection, contemplation, appreciation, prayer and gratitude. This way you can activate the higher brain, you can operate from your higher self, and you can receive guidance (through insight and intuition) simply because you feel connected to the resources of the universe and you act out of something larger than you (not because your ego wants to compensate for inferiority complexes or fears lack and separation).
Thus, if you precede the doing with being (in meditation, contemplation, prayer and gratitude), and then take action, your endeavor will be highly successful in the following respects:
- You will know you are on the right path; you won’t have second thoughts and doubts in the process or regrets later.
- The path will be easy and things will flow (since you will be energetically aligned with the cosmic tides of power); even difficulties will be met with grace.
- You will have a sense of fulfilment every step of the way; it won’t feel like a rut race, constant stress and in the end – no feeling of satisfaction.
In a nutshell, surrounding your projects with some form of spiritual practice guarantees your success and happiness not only on paper but also in your heart.
