Anthony Trollope once said, “Never think that you’re not good enough yourself. A man should never think that. People will take you very much at your own reckoning.” You should never think that. Because you are a special human being.
“The purpose of living is growth.”
God didn’t create you by mistake. God created you for a purpose. You are here for a reason that is bigger than you. And that reason should be your mission. Do not make yourself smaller than you really are. People will treat you the way you want to be treated.
“Never think that you’re not good enough yourself.”- Anthony Trollope
You are good enough. You are smart enough. You are tall enough. You are rich enough. You are beautiful enough. You are you. You are here to follow your dreams. You are here to achieve your dreams. You are not here to compete with anybody. You are here to compete with yourself.
Whether you are rich or poor, you are good enough for yourself. Whether you are tall or short, you are good enough for yourself. Whether you are smart or not, you are good enough for yourself. Whether you have a degree or not, you are good enough for yourself. Whether you have a job or not, you are good enough for yourself. Because you are good enough for yourself. You are not doing people’s things. You are doing your own thing.
“You are here to live your life, not to prove yourself to anybody.”
As Maya Angelou once said, “You alone are enough.You have nothing to prove to anybody.” Yes, “you have nothing to prove to anybody.” You are here to live your life, not to prove yourself to anybody. Even though you want to prove yourself to someone, prove yourself to yourself. That is it!
Do you have a dream? What are you doing here on earth? What is your mission? Do you know where you are going? Do you know how you are going to get there?
If you have an inner moonlight, you must not hide it. You must nurture it. You must live it. You must follow it. You must work it. As Allen Ginsberg once said, “Follow your inner moonlight; don’t hide the madness.” If you want to pass your examination, you must follow your inner moonlight. You must do your own thing. Do not allow anything to stop you from following your inner moonlight. Yes, sometimes it is hard to do, but if you have the courage to follow it, you will accomplish your dreams.
“A purposeless life is a meaningless life. And a meaningless life is a fruitless life. And a fruitless life is a hopeless life.”
Remember, your dream is not going to happen by accident. If you want it to happen, you must do your part. You must take action. You must listen to yourself. You must not allow people to talk you out of your dream. It is your dream. To keep it, you must protect it from negative thoughts. Do not let negative thoughts stand in your way. Do not ignore yourself. You have what it takes to succeed in your life. You have what it takes to live a better life. But you have got to listen to your inner moonlight. You have got to listen to your inner self. Do not listen to other people who are trying to talk you out of your life.
Don’t listen to them. Do not listen to negative people. If you want to make your dream happen, you must follow the dream in your heart. It is there for a purpose. And you must follow that purpose to the gate of heaven. You must nurture it. You must not hide your purpose. Because a purposeless life is a meaningless life. And a meaningless life is a fruitless life. And a fruitless life is a hopeless life. Do not be scared. You can always change your life. The choice is yours.
