Anthony Trollope said, “Never think that you’re not good enough yourself. A man should never say that: people will take you very much at your reckoning.” Don’t say anything stupid about yourself. Use the power of your words to change your life. Stop calling yourself names. Don’t judge yourself. No one is a perfect human being. Instead of calling yourself names, why not commit yourself to your life?
You are not defined by what you do; you are defined by love. Commit yourself to your own life. Make your life better. Because without commitment to your life, you can’t really do anything with your time. Don’t let your past define you. Don’t let what you went through in your life define you. Don’t let what other people have done to you define your future.
You are who are. No one is like you. God created you for a purpose. You are here to create, not to consume. And to fully create your own life, to fully live your life, to fully follow your path, you must take charge of your life. You must stop saying you are not good enough. It is not true. You are good enough. You are good enough for yourself. Whether people like how you live your life or not, you are good enough for yourself.
Never disrespect yourself. And do not let anyone disrespect you. Because you will get what you accept into your life. Stop blaming yourself. The past is gone. You can’t get it back. So why worry about it?
If you want to enjoy your life, you must stop telling yourself negative things. You must stop feeding your mind with bad things about yourself. You must stop living an average life. You must stop doing average things. You must do things that cause you to love yourself even more. No matter what you have done to yourself, forgive yourself and move on. To do that, you must renew your mind. Because you can’t change your life with old thoughts. You can do it. Let us start now.
Today matters. Before you start your day, before you leave your house, before you even make your morning coffee, make sure you have one positive thing that you want to get done. You can choose anything. It doesn’t really matter. You know what is important to you. But choose something based on your values, your goals, your dreams, your purpose in life.
You can focus on completing your unfinished project. You can focus on giving people love. You can focus on doing one thing at a time. You can focus on being fully present when you are with someone. The choice is yours.
One positive thing is better than twenty negative things. Doing one thing really well is better than doing so many things poorly. When it comes to task, when it comes to getting your task done, focus on one thing. It is better for you. It is better for your mind. It is better for your growth and development. It is better for your productivity.
When you focus on doing more than one thing at a time, you won’t get what you want. You will not do very well. You will do poorly. Why is that? Because you have divided your attention into so many places. You know that when attention is divided, when you don’t focus your attention on one thing, you will do really poorly.
But you can train yourself to be wherever you are. I think that is the best way to focus on one thing at a time. Just be there. Don’t fly. Do not think about anything. Do not get distracted by what you didn’t do well yesterday. Remember, what you are trying to learn now is what you didn’t do well yersterday. To stop yesterday from happening again, you must experience everything you are doing right now. Be there. Be yourself. Have purpose. Know what you want. Know how to get it.
Whatever you do, wherever you are, be fully present. Be there. Because success happens when we are present. Transformation happens when we are present in the here. Life changes when we are present. The question is, Are you present in the here and now?
