We cannot control everything around us, but we can control ourselves. If we can control ourselves, then we can control everything within us. Do not worry about things you cannot control. Worry about yourself, your future, what you are doing. Worry about how you are going to nurture your seeds. The seeds of happiness. The seeds of joy. The seeds of love. The seeds of life. The seeds of becoming. If you can take care of them, if you can nurture your imagination, your future will take care of itself.

To live well, you must nurture yourself. And your life will get easier, according to Tyler Perry,

When you:

“Nurture your imagination with hard work, positive energy, ease, and self- encouragement.”- Tyler Perry, Higher is Waiting

If you do not encourage yourself, if you do not support yourself, no one is going to encourage you. If you want to suceed, be your own supporter.

“Life gets easier and happier when we let people be whoever they truly are. Stop expecting them to give you what they don’t have or don’t know how to give.”- Tyler Perry, Higher is Waiting

What you cannot give yourself, do not expect it from other people.

“When you know your worth, when you know your value, your life changes and you change lives.”- Tyler Perry, Higher is Waiting

When you know who you are, you know what you are worth. As a result, you do not settle for less than you are worth.

Make a holy commitment to your beautiful self that you will only water the seeds of love, kindness, and self-worth, and you’ll let feelings of unworthiness wither on the vine.”- Tyler Perry, Higher is Waiting

Because love is life. Love is peace.

Because kindness is connection. Kindness is life.

Because self-worth is everything. Self-worth is you. Your self-worth is your life worth.

It is your inner life. It is your power. It is your inner energy.

If you do not have it, it is never to late to grow it.

If you are committed to it, you can grow it. You can develop it.

If you are willing to face yourself, you can grow your self-worth.

Whether You Like It Or Not, You Need A Plan

Yes, you need a plan. It is important for you to have. If you have not created one, it is never too late to start something new.

You need a plan. A plan is your guide, is your director, is your map, is your GPS.

When you are creating your plan, do not be too rigid. Be flexible. Be open to strangers. Be open to future changes.

To achieve success, to reach your destination, Earl Nightingale said, “All you need is a plan- the road map- and the courage to press on to your destination, knowing in advance that there will be problems and setbacks, but knowing also that nothing on earth can stand in the way of a plan, backed by persistence and determination.”

If you want your plan to work, you must back it with love, with compassion, with focus, with energy, with courage, with faith. If not, it won’t work.

So when is it the right time to plan? Every time. Every day. And always.

Planning is important.

Morgan Housel says, “Planning is important, but the most important part of every plan is to plan on the plan not going according to plan.” “Planning is everything.” Remember that everything is not going to go according to plan. So you must “plan on the plan not going according to plan,”

It is good to plan, but if it cannot face today’s reality, then it is not a good plan. You must change it. You must revise it. You must let go of what is not working.

If your plan is not working, if your plan is not doing what it is supposed to do, if you are not getting the right results, then let it go. Let it go.

Because the future is unknown. The future is foggy. The future is uncertain. According to Morgan Housel, ” A plan is only useful if it can survive reality.” If your plan can’t survive reality, your reality, then drop it. Do not continue with it.

When do we need to plan?

Now. David Allen says, “When you most need to plan is usually when you think you don’t have time to plan.” You have time to plan. If you are not planning to succeed, then you are planning to fail. Why is that? Because “planning is everything.”
