Your value doesn’t depend on others. Your value depends on you. Your self-worth depends on you.
You are responsible for your life, for what you think, for what you accept in your mind,
for what you are doing right now.
Do not depend on anyone to make you happy, to fulfill all your needs, to love you.
You can give it to yourself. You can do it for yourself.
Because what you cannot do for yourself, no one can do for you. What you cannot do for yourself, don’t expect it from other people.
No one can give you what you cannot give to yourself. No one can really make you happy.
So if you want to be happy, make yourself happy.
If you cannot make yourself happy, then who?
If you can’t love yourself, then who?
If you don’t have the courage to change what is not working for you in your life, who then?
Your gift is who you are. No one can take your gift away from you.
It is what separates you from other people. Everything can be taken away from you, but not your gift.
Your gift stays. Your gift keeps you alive. It connects you with other gifted people.
In other words, it is attractive. Gifts are attractive.
When you use your gift to change your life, to impact people,
to change the world around you, you are living, not existing.
And to connect with your gift, you must go deep within yourself.
You must connect with your soul. You have got to find your purpose on earth.
Because you can NEVER use your gift if you don’t know what you are doing.
To really make a difference in your life, in other people’s lives,
you must know what you are doing, where you are, and where you are going.
No one has the power to keep you down. No one has the right to lead your destiny.
All you need to do is to decide to lead your life. That is all.
Nothing more, nothing less. And you can do it.
