You can’t avoid bad days. You can’t control nature. You can change how you enjoy your day. Don’t worry about bad days. They are going to happen. Bad days are bad days. Don’t let them get you down. Focus on the light, not the darkness. When your day is not going well, find something that will make you really happy. Do something that will take your mind away from negative things. Call a friend. Take a walk around your neighborhood. Listen to great music. Meditate. Take a break from whatever is getting you down. Don’t try to force yourself through things. Wake yourself back, then start again.

Things are different. Don’t beat your up when things are not going your way. It is not always going to go your way. You have got to accept that. If not, suffer will come.

Try to love what you do. Don’t take on what you cannot do. Before you accept any assignment from anybody, you must do your own research. You must find out if it is what you can do. Because if you don’t do it well, it will hurt your image. Some days you will do well, some days you will not. But no matter what happens, don’t change how you see yourself. If you make a mistake, it is not about you; it is about the thing. Instead of looking at yourself as a weak person, look at the mistake as a learning opportunity. If you can do that, you will know why some days are better.

4 Ways To Change Your Life, According To Nelson Mandela

When it comes to change, we don’t want to hear it. We don’t want to talk about it. We don’t want to experience it.

If you want to live a fulfilled life, you can’t do it without change. As I write this note, I am changing. I am Learning. I am developing myself.

Don’t fight change. Change is not about changing your physical body. Change is about changing your soul. Change is not about you. It is about your soul. It is about your inner life. It is about your spiritual life.

To change your life, according to Nelson Mandela, you must do these four things:

You must conduct yourself with morality. Mandela said, “Those who conduct themselves with morality, integrity and consistency need not to fear the forces of inhumanity and cruelty.”

You must dedicate yourself to what you do. In Mandela’s words, “Everyone can rise above their circumstances and achieve success if they are dedicated to and passionate about what they do.”

You must conquer your fear. According to Mandela, “I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”

You must learn from pleasant and unpleasant experiences. “It is in the character of growth that we should learn from both pleasant and unpleasant experiences.”

Change is the way.
