Jean de La Fontaine once said, “By the work one knows the workman.” By your work, people will know you. By your work, your boss will know you. By your work, the Lord will know you. And by your work, the world will know you. Because you are what you do. And you cannot separate yourself from what you do. If you want people to recognize you, you must do your work really well.

According to Cherie Carter Scott,

You have succeeded if you have fulfilled your potential; Have you fulfilled your potential? If not, start now. Find out what you can do. And do it.

you have succeeded if you have been true to yourself; Have you been true to yourself? Look, if you lie to yourself, you are not lying to me, you are stealing away from your future. Remember, it is easier to lie to yourself than to lie to others. Do not do it.

you have succeeded if you have truly loved another; Do you love another? Do you even love yourself? If you are comfortable with yourself, then it means you love yourself. Because love is acceptance.

you have succeeded if you have fulfilled your purpose; Have you fulfilled your purpose in life? Have you accomplished why you are here? If you are still looking for your purpose, do not get discouraged. It is never too late to grow up.

you have succeeded if you have made your dreams come true; Have you made your dreams come true? Have you accomplished your purpose? If you do not know what your dreams are, then look for something that makes you happy, then do it.

you have succeeded if you have improved your quality of life; Have you improved the quality of your life? If you are still working on it, keep working. If you have stopped trying, get yourself back up again. Because you are closer to your dreams than you think.

you have succeeded if you have made a difference; Have you made a difference? Have you changed people’s lives? Have you touched people’s hearts? If you have not, now is the right time to start.

and you have succeeded if you can look on your life knowing that you have done your best.” Have you given yourself your best? Have you given your boss your best? Have you lived your best life? Have you done your best work? You still have time to do your best, to be your best, and to give your best. The time is now!

As the old saying goes, “You can’t control what happens to you, but you can control how you react to it.” You can’t control life, but you can control your own life. Live your life. Do not destroy yourself just to make other people happy.

If you are not happy, it is because you are not brave enough to face your life. No matter what is going on out there, it is your responsibility to make yourself happy. If you can’t do it for you, who do you think is going to do it for you. If you are honest with yourself, the answer is you.

If you want to put your life together, here are some strategies, according to Rachel Hollis.

She says, “Don’t fear your weakness, fear drowning in despair for the rest of your time on earth because you were too afraid to confront your pain.” No matter what you are going through in your life, if you want to put your life together, do not “cover your pain to make other people more comfortable.”

She says, “If you want to move forward, be honest about what’s going on even if it’s only to yourself.” If you have the courage to be honest with yourself, that is good enough.

She says, “Stop trying to cover up your emotions, or, frankly, anything you don’t like about yourself or your feelings, with a new coat of paint. … But in order to do that, you’ve got to be real. You have to allow yourself to truly feel what you feel before you can feel what you’d like.” Allow yourself to be you, to express yourself. If you don’t express your God-given self, then what are you doing with it?

She says, “Have the courage to admit who you are, even if it’s only to yourself at first.” Have the courage to admit who you are to yourself, to your mnd, to your body, and to your soul. Why is that? To know others, you must first know yourself. If not, you are faking it. Do not fake your way through life. Live your way through life. Grow your way through life. Do not be scared to set boundaries for yourself. They work.

She says, “When one thing changes, everything changes, even if it takes you a bit to admit it and adjust.” When something changes in your life, you are no longer the same person. Change is important. See it as a blessing, not as a curse.

She says, “You are going to have to love yourself enough to seek help. You are going to have to love yourself enough to forgive yourself. You are going to have to love yourself enough to believe that you can be better, that you will be better, next time. You are also going to have to love yourself enough to walk away from anyone who weaponizes your guilt and uses it against you.” You have the power to do whatever you want. But to do that, you have got to be real with yourself.

Remember, according to Rachel Hollis, “You are an ever-evolving being who will continue to change over time.”
