If you want to grow, you can’t avoid failure. You are going to fail. If you are not failing, you are not growing. The problem is that people want to succeed, but they don’t want to fail. They don’t want to make mistakes. They don’t want to take risks. They just want to remain where they are. If you keep doing the same thing, you will keep getting the same results. To face your fears, you must do what works. Don’t do things that are hurting your life. Don’t stick with things that are not working well for you. Stay away. If something is not working, don’t stick with it. let it go. It is okay to fail at something. If you don’t want to fail at something, you will fail at everything. It is okay to fail. If you are not failing, or you haven’t failed in your life, you are playing with yourself.

There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.”- Paulo Coelho

If you fail at something, take action to change it. If you cannot change it, then try something else. Waiting for the perfect time is not going to help you achieve your goals. There is no such thing as a perfect time. The perfect time to do something great is now. If not now, when are you going to do it?

“If your happiness depends on what somebody else does, I guess you do have a problem.”– Richard Bach

Does your happiness depend on other people’s lives? Does your happiness depend on your job? Does your happiness depend on your pocket (money)?

If your happiness depends on those things, you do have a problem. Nothing can make you happy but yourself. No one can make you happy. No one can bring you happiness but yourself. If you really care about your happiness, focus on your purpose in life. Purpose brings happiness.

You can’t buy happiness, but meaningful things can make you happy. If you want to make yourself happy, I mean really happy, you must focus on doing meaningful things. Good things can make you happy, not people. Don’t expect happiness from anyone. No one can make you happy. Only you can make yourself happy. Don’t go around chasing happiness. All you need to do is look within yourself. Happiness is in your mind. If you want to make yourself happy, don’t allow negative thoughts to take charge of your life.

According to Franz Schubert, “You believe happiness to be derived from the place in which once you have been happy, but in truth it is centered in ourselves.” Your happiness is centered in yourself. Your happiness is your choice. You can make yourself happy. You can make yourself happy by changing the relationship you have with yourself. When it comes to happiness, how you see yourself matters. It matters more than anything else. When you change how you see yourself, your life will change. Your personality will change. Your future will change. Above all, your self-esteem will go up.

You can make yourself happy if you have the courage to love yourself. Love is the real happiness. Why? Yes, because if you don’t love yourself, you can’t make yourself happy. Everything starts with love. Love is in charge of our lives. When you are in love with yourself, your life will reflect it. Sigmund Freud famously said, “We must begin to love in order not to fall ill.” So, if you want to make yourself happy, make yourself happy. But don’t expect to be happy every day. It is not going to happen. You must accept what you have. Everything is not going to go your way. You must be happy with what you have, where you are, and move on with your life.

Are you ready to make yourself happy?
