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.

Always Do What You Are Afraid To Do

“Always do what you are afraid to do.”– Ralph Waldo Emerson

If you want to conquer your fear, you must do what you think you cannot do. You must face your fears. But just because you can do something, doesn’t mean you should do it.

If you want to conquer your fears, don’t feed them, starve them. According to Steve Maraboli, Your fear is 100% dependent on you for its survival.” It is okay to be afraid of something. But don’t let fear stop you from doing your own thing. Don’t let fear stop you from pursuing your dreams.

What are you really afraid of? Failure? Success? Responsibility? Death? Growth? Living? Your past?

We all have fear. But whatever you fear, to conquer it, you must face it. You must do what you are afraid to do.
