Some life lessons I learned and advice to other people.
you try to control everything, and then worry about the things you can’t
control, you are setting yourself up for a lifetime of frustration and
misery. Some forces are out of your control, but you can
control how you react to things. Everyone’s life has positive and
negative aspects whether you’re happy or not depends greatly on which
aspects you focus on. The best thing you can do is to let go of what
you can’t control, and invest your energy in the things you can, like
When it comes to damage control for other people, leave
it alone!! Don't try and solve the problems that others have made for
themselves. Don't even give them a chance to talk their way out of what
they've acted themselves into. Allow them to learn the lesson of the
consequences of their choices. Don't throw hard earned money away trying
to bail someone out of a situation that they created. Muster up the
courage to say "no". The best thing you can
do for them is to let them take responsibility for their own actions.
Make up your mind not to be a rescuer or an enabler. Let them figure it
out and handle it. The sooner you do this, the sooner they will learn
their lessons. They have their own journey. Keep your money in your
pocket and keep the drama and stress out of your life. Resist the guilt
trip!! Don't give it any more energy and protect your peace of mind. You
deserve to be happy!
When it comes to self doubt, you
might think you’re not good enough, but you’ll surprise yourself if you
keep trying. Your past does not determine who you are. Your past
prepares you for who you are capable of becoming. What ultimately
defines you is how well you rise after falling. Don’t ever be afraid to
give yourself a chance to be everything you are capable of being.
Forget the haters. Never undervalue who you are and what you’re capable
of. Excellence is the result of loving more than others think is
necessary, dreaming more than others think is practical, risking more
than others think is safe, and doing more than others think is possible. It’s
time to believe in yourself and in your dreams. It’s time to take the
risk of living your true life. It’s time to hold your head up, and
decide to never let anything turn you around. It's time to recognize that you have more in you than you've been expressing.
have the power to live a bigger life. Challenge yourself. Take the risk!
Become daring. There are things in your life that are no longer you and
you know it in your heart. There is no law that says you have to carry
the whole world on your shoulders. And the emptiness and lack of fulfillment inside is becoming too much to bear. It’s time to take care of you. Live your dream. Take off the cape.
Do what you know and not what you feel. You deserve to live too! You
have needs too! Give yourself a mental break and take time to get centered, grounded and reconnected with your spirit. Allowing your time
to be wasted with people who are not serious is not fruitful and it’s
stressful. Staying in a job where you are not appreciated or valued or
validated is draining and toxic. You will survive. You
always have! Life is on your side. You’re more powerful and stronger
than you give yourself credit for being. No guts, no glory. You have one
life to live, live the life you love and love the life you live. Family
and friends may attempt to discourage you. Tell them thank you, I got
that, and move on. At the end of the day, it’s your life. You deserve to
be happy. You deserve to make your life a daring adventure and to
manifest your GREATNESS. Keep in mind, it’s lonely at the top, but you
let anyone crush your dreams. Do just once what they say you can’t do,
and you will never pay attention to their negativity again. Don’t walk
away from these negative people… RUN! Good things happen when you
distance yourself from negativity and those who create it.
Truth be told, no one has the right to judge you. People may have heard
your stories, but they can’t feel what you are going through; they
aren't living YOUR life. So forget what they say about you. Focus on
how you feel about yourself, and do what you know in your heart is
sounds harsh, but you cannot keep every friend you've ever made. People
and priorities change. As some relationships fade others will grow.
Appreciate the possibility of new relationships as you naturally let go
of old ones that no longer work. Trust your judgement. Embrace new
relationships, knowing that you are entering into unfamiliar territory.
Be ready to learn, be ready for a challenge, and be ready to meet
someone that might just change your life forever.
patient — even if you don't have a dime in the bank, lost your job, or
your money. Be patient. You have the power in you to pull this out.
Don't judge yourself based on what you don't have. What you have is
enough. Hold the vision. You have the power in you to resurrect your
dreams, and make them become a reality. Work on yourself. Believe in
yourself, and in a power greater than yourself. Be patient and keep
moving forward. Things will work out for you.
will keep moving. Some people will be there with you for some time. Some
people will go away. But those who find you special will always find
ways to be with you.
it’s impossible to know exactly how another person is feeling or what
kind of emotional battles they’re fighting. Sometimes the widest smiles
hide the thinnest strands of self-confidence and hope. Sometimes the
‘rich’ have everything but happiness. Realize this as you interact with
others, long before you pass judgement. Every smile or sign of
strength hides an inner struggle every bit as complex and extraordinary as your own.
It’s a sage fact of life, really, that every one of us encompasses a
profound and unique set of secrets and mysteries that are absolutely
undetectable to everyone else. So smile at people who look like they
are having a rough day today. Be kind to them. Kindness is the only
investment that never fails.
Forget all the reasons why it won’t work, and believe the one reason why it will.
are stronger than you think you are. It doesn't matter what you are
facing...a lost relationship, job, bankruptcy, foreclosure, health
challenge, or financial situation. You have the power in you to recreate
it all over again from scratch. It does not matter how old you are.
Don't beat yourself up. It's natural to feel sorry for yourself, or feel
frightened and want to give up. It doesn't even
matter if the people that you thought would have your back have
deserted you. You are still breathing. You're still here, and you have
the power to win.
You are more powerful than you think you
are. Remind yourself of this. Stand up within yourself. Gather your
mental, emotional, and spiritual strength, and speak from deep within
your spirit and your soul. Take back your power Say..."I will survive. I
will thrive. I am coming back. Giving up is not who I am. I will stay
the course, and persist until I succeed." You might have to do this
while down on your knees, praying, crying, and screaming at the top of
your lungs. Resist the feeling of being overwhelmed, powerless, or being
a victim. You will survive and thrive again!!!
