Work on yourself than you work on other things. Other things can’t make you a better person. Only you can make yourself a better person. Because you know who you are. You know where you are going. You know what you want out of life. You know your mind. No one can get into your mind.

Work on yourself. Work on your life. Work on your career. Work on your relationships. And everything will fine with you. Because life is action, not inaction.

Work on yourself. Work on making yourself a better person. You can make yourself whole by purifying your mind. Because where your mind goes, there you are. According to Suzy kassem, “Work on making yourself a complete being. Though you were born with the physical traits of one sex, you posses the characteristics of both- including those of plants and animals. You were created as a nearly complete universal being, but with flaws. True perfection can only be achieved when one recognizes that they need to combine their oneness with others and nature. Only then is one considered complete. Your heart is your temple.” Yes, your heart is your temple. So keep it sacred.

You can work on yourself. Do be like other people. Be like yourself. Work on becoming that person that person you were created to be. Do not imitate other people. Imitation has no value. Imitation is useless. Don’t do it. Be yourself. Discover yourself. Find your true self. You can change everything about your life, yourself, your career, if you have the courage to discover your true self.

Time Is…

You are not free until you know how to manage your time. Progress doesn’t happen overnight. It happens when you know how to manage your time.

Time is precious. Don’t waste it on things that are irrelevant to your dreams. Manage your time well. If you know how to manage your time, you will know how to live your life. Dietrich Bonhoeffer said, “Time lost is time when we have not lived a full human life, time unenriched by experiences, creative endeavor, enjoyment, and suffering.” So if you want to live a full human life, you must manage your time well. Because time is your life. If you waste it, you waste your life.

“Time is too short for those who rejoice.”- Henry Van Dyke

Live your time. Your time is important. Use your time to get yourself to where you want to be. Use your time to change other people’s lives. Use your time to love, to create new things, to change what you don’t like about yourself. Don’t use your time to bring other people down. Don’t use your time to watch TV. Use it to live, to give thanks to God, to reach out to your friends, to read, to draw, to design, to make the world a better place.

Time is important. Use your time to live your own life. Use your time to create yourself, to reinvent yourself. Steve Jobs once said, “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.” We are not going to be here forever. But while we are still here, let us not waste our lives. Let us live our lives.
