Some hurdles are too difficult to clear by simply adjusting your point of view or adopting a positive mindset. You must jump!
In the same way,you must work at getting yourself happy.
Happiness is an attitude. We either make ourselves miserable, or happy and strong. The amount of work done towards these two different ends is the same.
When we argue for our limitations, we get to keep them.
Bu you are as amazing as you let yourself be. Let me repeat that. You are as amazing as you let yourself be.
As you get older, you learn that there is one sentence,just four words long, and if you can say it to yourself it offers more comfort than almost any other. It goes like this: At least I tried.
If you had a million dollars in cash under your mattress, you would check it regularly and take precautions to insure it is safe. The one possession you have that is more important than money is
time. But you don’t do anything to protect it. In fact you willingly give it to thieves. Selfish people, egotistical people, negative people, people who
won’t shut up. Treat your time like a bank safe.
Guard it closely and give it only to those who deserve and respect it.
Then let go of all that which doesn’t matter in your life anymore to free up your time and energy.
Do you need to forgive someone? Do you need to turn your back on a failed relationship? Do you need to come to terms with the death of a loved one?
Life is full of loss. But, in a sense, real happiness would not be possible without it.
It helps us appreciate and savor the things that really matter. It helps us grow. It can help us help others grow.
Stop fighting yourself and start fighting for yourself.
The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.
That’s what you should work and commit your time and energy to.
The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.
And when things go wrong,work towards cutting your losses,not seeking a closure for your failure.
Closure after a big loss is a word for people who have never really suffered. There’s no such thing as a clean closure to failure in your life,or relationship,or even your business.
Just try to “manage” your loss. Put it in perspective. You will always have some regret and doubt about your loss. You may always second guess yourself. If
only you had said this, or tried that.
You’re not alone. Find someone who understands and talk to that person. Reach out for support.
If all else fail,reach out for your own reserve of resolve to succeed any way….
And if you hear a voice within you say “you cannot succeed,” then by all means resolve to succeed and that voice will
And if your ship doesn’t sail in to your harbour, swim out to it.
It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.
Success isn’t like spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire.
Let the fire burn away all that is not useful in your life anymore,the deal with the aftermath loss of that fire.
One way to deal with loss is to immerse yourself in doing good. Volunteer. Get involved in life. It doesn’t even have to be a big, structured thing. Say a kind word. Encourage someone. Pay a visit
to someone who is alone. Get away from your self-absorption on the loss.
You may think a morning coffee is the most enjoyable thing in the world, but it’s really just a habit. Thirty days without it, and you would be fine. You think you
have a soul mate, but in fact you could have had any number of spouses. You would have evolved differently, but been just as happy.
A loss of just one relationship is so minute in the big scheme of things in your life.
Many stars burn out in the galaxies,but many more spring up too!
You can change what you want about yourself at any time. You see yourself as someone who can’t write or play an instrument, who gives in to temptation or makes bad decisions, or fails in relationships but that’s really not you. It’s not ingrained. It’s not your personality.
Your personality is something else,
something deeper than just preferences, and these details on the surface, you can change anytime you like.
If it is useful to do so, you must abandon your identity and start again. Sometimes, it’s the only way.
Set fire to your old self. It’s not needed here in your new form. It’s too busy shopping, gossiping about others, and
watching days go by and asking why you haven’t gotten as far as you’d like. This old self will die and be forgotten by all but family, and replaced by someone who makes a difference.
I found that every single successful person I’ve ever spoken to had a turning point and the turning point was where they made a clear, specific,unequivocal decision that they were not going to
live like this anymore. Some people make that decision at age 15 and some people make it at 50 and most never make it at all.
Some days there won’t be a lively song in your heart. But sing anyway.
When it comes down to it, there are two types of people in this world. There are givers and there are takers. Givers are happy. Takers are miserable. What are you?
