To Achieve Greatness, You Must Face Yourself

“We always may be what we might have been.”- Adelaide Anne Procter

Life is full of problems. Life is also full of solutions. Focus on what you want. So if you want love, you must focus on love. If you want happiness, you must focus on what will make you happy. Don’t do the opposite.

There is nothing you cannot do if you just focus on what will get you closer to your dream. You can change your life if you can change how you see yourself. You can make your dream happen if you don’t stop yourself. You are created for greatness. You are created to change people’s lives. That is not going to happen if you cannot face the unknown- your future.

Don’t let anyone tell you what you cannot do. You can do anything. You can beat your fears. You can achieve your dreams. You can live your life. Nothing can stop you from moving forward. Nothing can stop you from living your life. Nothing can make you unhappy. Nothing can pull you down. The only person who can stop you from moving forward is you. Until you love yourself, until you love your life, you will never achieve your goals.

Walk Through Them

Life is about walking. We walk alone. We walk with people. But we are always walking. Yes, we are always walking.

There are lots of things that we cannot change. What do we do? We try to change them. We try to modify them. We try to walk away from them. But the real way to solve a problem is to face it. If you don’t face it, it gets bigger.

Most of the things we face in life will give way if we can walk through them. Sometimes we have the courage to do it. Other times we don’t have the courage to do it. It is okay. But when you do have the courage to face a problem, just walk through them.

In the words of Orison Swett Marden, “Most of our obstacles would melt away if, instead of cowering before them, we should make up our minds to walk boldly through them.”
