Why are you living other people’s dreams? Why are you trying to be who you are not? C’mon, no matter what is going on in your life, you have a lot going well for you. Why not focus on what is going well for you? Why not use the time you have on earth to make a difference?
“The most difficult thing to be is what other people want you to be.”- Leo Buscaglia
In my opinion, that is better than wasting it on worthless things. If you don’t get what you want, be patient. Sometimes it takes time to discover the genius within you.When things are not working, be patient with yourself. Do not beat yourself up. Do not criticize yourself. When life is not treating you fairly, do not give up. Giving up on your dreams means you are giving up on yourself.
“The easiest thing to be in the world is you.”- Leo Buscaglia
You don’t want to do anything anymore. You are saying to yourself, ‘I am done!” Good or bad, do not quit. Keep going, keep learning, and keep loving your life.
The key to success is honesty. It attracts other like-minded people into your life. It takes courage to represent yourself. Martha Beck says, “No matter how difficult and painful it may be, nothing sounds as good to the soul as the truth.”
Truth is freedom. And freedom is responsibility. Truth is peace. And peace is a creator. Truth is responsibility. And responsibility is freedom. When you are responsible, you are free. According to Paulo Coelho, “Freedom is not the absence of commitments, but the ability to choose – and commit myself to- what is best for me.” You have a lot of ‘what is best’ for you. No matter what is going on in your life, look for the positive things in your life and focus on them.
Whether you win or lose, never stop celebrating your life. Whether you are good enough or not, never stop celebrating your life. Whether you have a good job or not, never stop celebrating your life. According to Oprah Winfrey, “The more you celebrate, the more you will have to celebrate.” The more you celebrate yourself, your life, the more things you will have to celebrate.
Why are we not doing it? We do not celebrate our lives enough because of fear. We want other people to like us. We want to be like other people. Look, you cannot be yourself if you don’t know who you really are. And you can’t know who you really are if you do not embrace yourself.
Remember that self-criticism brings nothing. And to get to know who you really are, you must stop criticizing yourself. Instead of criticizing yourself, instead of comparing yourself with other people, why not use the time to know yourself better, why not use the time to connect with yourself, why not use the time to celebrate the life within you, why not use the time to love yourself? Why not?
Do not forget that the more you celebrate yourself, the more things you will have to celebrate. Instead of criticizing yourself, why not compare yourself to who you were yesterday. Because how you look at your growth, how you see yourself will make a big difference in your life. If you want to grow, do not compare yourself with other people’s lives. Why is that? Because we all have problems. No one is perfect. You do not see what they are going through. Sure, they are going through things that you don’t know.
We all have something to figure out. You are not the only one with something to figure out. We all have. You are not alone. If you focus on what you are doing, setbacks cannot stop you from achieving your dreams. So instead of criticizing yourself, try celebrating your life.
