Richard Feynman said, “The first principle is that you must not fool yourself and you are the easiest person to fool.”
“Self- awareness is the key to a successful life.” If you don’t know yourself, if you are not honest with yourself, if you keep deceiving yourself, if you keep running away from reality, you will NEVER know yourself. You will keep fooling yourself.
No one expects life to be easy. But life is much more interesting if you have the courage to face life.
No matter what you are going through, go through it. Don’t lie to yourself. Don’t run away from your problems. They are your problems to fix. No one can handle your problems, but you.
Pick your fight wisely. Don’t waste your time, your energy, your resources on things you are not good at. Do what you are good at, and do it very well.
“Success comes from doing what you are good at.”
“Failure comes from doing what you are not good at.”
Don’t do something because people want you to do it. Don’t do something because your parents or your friends want you to do it.
Do something because you want to do it. Do it because it is the right thing to do for yourself. For your growth. For your development. For your career. For your relationships. For your health. For your happiness. For your spiritual being. Just do it!
Don’t allow people to make critical decisions for you. Make your decisions yourself, and take responsibility for making them.
Don’t pretend to be busy when you are not really doing anything. If you do that, you are wasting your time.
Remember that if you waste your time, you are wasting your life. Don’t waste your life. Don’t lie to yourself. Be honest with yourself.
If you want to be successful in life, be honest with yourself. Don’t fool yourself.
Are you ready to stop fooling yourself?
