You Cannot Change Your Circumstances If You Don’t Change Yourself

“He who believes is strong; he who doubt is weak. Strong convictions precede great actions.”- Louisa May Alcott

Change starts with you. If you believe you can change, you can. If you believe you can’t, you can’t. If you want to change your life, you must first change yourself. You must change your thoughts. You must change how you see yourself. You must believe in yourself. You can’t change your life if you don’t believe you can do it. Success starts with self-love.

Changing yourself starts within, not without.

If you want to lead your own life, don’t fear. If you fear, you are half defeated. You must take action to change your life. You must move from talking to actually doing something. Talk is easy. Doing is expensive.

Change is an active business, not a passive one.

To change your circumstances, you must be willing and ready to get your hands dirty. This is where you show yourself to yourself. This is where you compete with yourself. Be willing to do whatever it takes to change your life. Don’t talk about it. You must do something about it.

Opportunities are everywhere, but they don’t know where you live. You must go out there and look for what you want. Your dreams are not going to happen if you don’t do something about them. You must pursue them. You must take risks. You must believe in yourself. You must not fear. It is time, and the time is NOW!

You Must Let Go Of People Who Don’t Value You

You must let go of people who don’t value you. If you don’t let them go, they will continue to devalue you. You must tell people how to treat you. You must tell people what you want from them. You must tell people what you stand for. If you don’t tell them how you want to be treated, they will abuse you. They will mistreat you. They will never respect you. So if you don’t want it to happen to you, you must sail your ship. You must drive yourself. You must take charge of your life. If not, they will do it for you. And when they do, you will have nothing left to eat for lunch, let alone dinner.

If you have a friend who is a joke, let him or her go. Don’t hang out with aimless people. If you want to grow, you must look for people who are getting things done. If you don’t want to end up like your aimless friend, you must be in charge of your life.

Walking away from your aimless friend doesn’t mean you hate him or her; it means you love him or her. You respect him or her. You want your friend to do his or her thing. It means you respect yourself. If you don’t want to waste your time, you must let go of your aimless friends.

As the saying goes, “You are as good as your friends.” If you want to be successful, hang out with other successful people. If you want to be happier, hang out with other happy people. If you want to be smarter, hang out with other smart people. If you want to be a leader, you must follow a successful leader. It is not hard. You can do it. It depends on what your values are? If you know your values, you will know where to go. What are your values?
