In order to get what you want, to face your life, you must embrace change. And you are the only one who can bring change into your life.
Life is full of distractions. But do not let anything stop you from going after what you want in life, not even you. To get there, to get ahead of others, to defeat your fears, follow these tips.
“Remain in an environment that will stimulate you to self-development”
That is what you need if you really want to grow yourself, if you really want to develop yourself. Because it is difficult to grow in a place where you are not valued, where no one cares about you, where people are not there for other people. So if you want to grow, you need a stimulating environment. As Dr Joseph Murphy once said, “Whatever you do in life, make any sacrifice necessary to remain in an environment that will stimulate you to self-development. Keep close to the people who understand you, who believe in you, who will help you discover yourself and encourage you to make the most of yourself.”
Be patient with yourself
Nothing happens overnight. So whatever you want to achieve for yourself, to make it happen, you must take one step at a time. Do not be in a hurry. Take your time, but do not forget where you are going. Do not forget that change takes time. According to Robin Sharma, “You need not change your world in a day. Start off small. The thousand-mile journey begins by taking that first step. We grow by degrees. Small daily steps lead to stunning results overtime.”
Begin where you are
Whatever you want to do, do not be afraid to start. If it is important to you, then why wait? What are you waiting for? Stop waiting. Do not wait for anyone to come and take action for you. No one can do it for you, but you. Louis L’ Amour once said, “I would not sit waiting for some vague tomorrow, nor for something to happen. One could wait a lifetime, and find nothing at the end of the waiting. I would begin here, I would make something happen.”
Be there for yourself. When the going gets really tough, do not forget who you are, why you are doing what you are doing, and where you are going. If you are for your dreams, then that is good enough to get you to the finish line, if there is even one. Be your own cheerleader. Do not wait for anyone to approve of you. According to Kate, womangic.com, “If we approve of oneself, we don’t need the approval of other people.” If you are not able to approve of yourself, of your life, of your goals, then you are not responsiblke for yourself, someone else is. Margie Warrell writes, “The truth is that if you aren’t able to approve of yourself first, no amount of adulation, admiration or approval from anyone else will be enough.” Give yourself love. Don’t expect it from others. Because if you can’t love yourself, believe it or not, no one can love you.
