Your strength does not grow out of your strength. Your strength grows out of your weakness. Your weakness is what makes you unique. It is yours. Nothing is the same. “Everything is different.” Your weakness is another person’s strength. Your strength is another person’s weakness. That is why you should NEVER beat yourself up about anything. It won’t help you get closer to your true life.
No one is perfect. And no one is good at everything. Some people are good at mathematics. Other people are good at history. That is what life is all about: It is about imperfection.
“If you want to grow yourself, you must redefine your relationship with your weakness.”
If you want to change yourself, if you want to grow yourself, do not see your weakness as your weakness, see it as a chance to better your life. If you pay attention to your weakness, you can learn a valuable lesson from it. But if you don’t embrace your weakness, you are not going to learn anything from it.
Your weakness is your learning opportunity. Don’t waste it. Take it. Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Our strength grows out of our weakness.” If you want to improve your life, you must pay attention to your weakness. Don’t ignore your weakness, develop it. If you want to really improve your life, redefine your relationship with your weakness.
“If it’s never our faults, we can’t take responsibility for it. If we can’t take responsibility for it, we’ll always be its victim.”- Richard Bach
Who is responsible for your life? Who is responsible for your happiness? Who is responsible for your growth and development? Who is responsible for your peace of mind? Who is responsible for healing your soul? Who is responsible for changing your life? Who is responsible for moving you forward? Who?
If you are honest with yourself, the question is not hard to answer. It is very simple. It is YOU. You are responsible for your life. Stop waiting for people to fix you. No one is responsible for your life. You are in charge of your life. You are the boss. You are in command. Don’t wait for your brother or your sister to fix you. You have what it takes to help yourself get better. You know what it takes to move your life forward. If you don’t know, ask. Don’t shut up. If you don’t ask, you won’t get. If you ask, you will get.
You are responsible for asking for what you want. If you don’t take responsibility for asking for what you want, no one will ask for you. No one. Not even your best friend. Aldous Huxley said, “We were left to go our way and take responsibility for our own affairs.” If you really mean business, you must take care of your own affairs.
We are here to depend on ourselves. We are not here to depend on anyone. It is okay to ask for help, but don’t depend on anyone. Depend on yourself. Do your own work. Grow your own garden. Live your own life. Don’t imitate anyone. Don’t compare yourself to others. Don’t compare your achievements with others. Your achievements are your achievements. Enjoy them.
If you don’t have the courage to take responsibility for your failure, you will be its victim. If you can’t look your fear in the face, you will be its victim. If you don’t want to be a victim, you must take responsibility for your life. There are no easy ways to live a better life. There are no easy ways to change your life. There are no easy ways to become who you want to be. The only way is to do your work. If you want to succeed in your life, you must do your own work. Are you ready to work? Are you ready to do whatever it takes to succeed?
