You Don’t Need This Person In Your Life

It does not matter where you are, what you are doing, where you are going, you do not need someone who is constantly putting you down, who is never for you, who does not support your dreams, who always talk you out of your dreams, who never sees anything positive in your life.

If you want to grow yourself, you need someone who is not afraid to tell you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear.

Do not hang out with negative people, with toxic people, with people who are not going anything, who are not doing anything to improve their lives, to change their situations, to position themselves for greatness.

In his book Higher is Waiting, Tyler Perry wirites, “Is there someone in your life who is contantly putting you down, triggering your feelings of inadequacy? You don’t need this person. Ask yourself, “Why am I staying?”

Yes, why are you still in a terrible marriage? Why are you still with a terrible boss? Why are you still hanging out with lazy people? Why?

No matter what you are going through right now, if you do not stand up for yourself, people will abuse you. If you do not love yourself, people will abuse you. People will feed you with the food you don’t want to eat. They will feed your heart with the wrong words.

Do not worry about who is for you or who is against you. If you are for yourself, if you know what you want for yourself, if you do not live for others, you can make your life work for you, not against you. If no one is for you, be for yourself. That is good enough. Yes, it is.

Time To Move On

You have the power to change your life. Without taking responsibility for your life, nothing gets done.

When it comes to getting things done, it is okay to make mistakes. Because without mistakes, you are not going to get anything done. And do not forget why you are here. To get things done.

If you are not getting anything done, then it is time to move on. It is time to be honest with yourself. It is time to stop chasing what is not for you. It is time to face your reality. It is time to seek help from other people. And it is time to start challenging yourself.

If you want to improve yourself, you have to focus on your own improvement. Ask the right questions. Take chances. Do not fear risks. Because if you do not take risks, you are not going to get what you want.

Remember that your job is to improve yourself. It is not to focus on what others are doing. What matters is what you are doing. And if you aren’t getting the right results, then move on. Do not waste your time. Because you are not going to be here forever. All you have is today. So why not make it a special day for yourself and for the people around you?

If you are bigger than what you are doing right now, then do not waste your time. Move on. Try something different. Move to another company, if you can do it. In his book Higher is Waiting, Tyler Perry writes, “If you’re not growing anymore, if it feels as if the walls are closing in on you, if your roots are pressing up against one another and its uncomfortable, if you’re not getting enough spiritual nourishment and encouragement, then it’s probably time to move to a bigger pot- a larger world.”

If you are not learning anymore, then it is time to move on. Before you move, ask the right question. For example, “Why am I moving?” Yes, why are you moving? Is it the right time?
