You can conquer yourself. You can change your life. You have what it takes to make things happen. Don’t let anything stop you from changing your life. Focus on love, not hate. Focus on what you can do, not what you cannot do. With love, you can conquer yourself. With love, you can change your life.

Whatever you are going through today, they will disappear. All you need to do is to focus on light, not darkness. James Allen said, “Whatever conditions are rendering your life burdensome, you may pass out of and beyond them by developing and utilizing within you the transforming power of self-purification and self-conquest. Before the divine radiance of a pure heart all darkness vanishes and all clouds melt away, and he who has conquered self has conquered the universe.”

Purify yourself. Self-purification is not easy, but you can do it. Change is good, but it doesn’t happen overnight. No matter what you are going through, you can change it by purifying yourself, by staying away from negative things, by doing the right things, by loving yourself. Do not settle for less. You have the power to transform yourself. Why not do it?

Here Is Why You Should Embrace Your Weakness

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.
