Anthony Trollope once said, “Never think that you’re not good enough yourself. A man should never think that. People will take you very much at your own reckoning.” You should never think that. Because you are a special human being.
“The purpose of living is growth.”
God didn’t create you by mistake. God created you for a purpose. You are here for a reason that is bigger than you. And that reason should be your mission. Do not make yourself smaller than you really are. People will treat you the way you want to be treated.
“Never think that you’re not good enough yourself.”- Anthony Trollope
You are good enough. You are smart enough. You are tall enough. You are rich enough. You are beautiful enough. You are you. You are here to follow your dreams. You are here to achieve your dreams. You are not here to compete with anybody. You are here to compete with yourself.
Whether you are rich or poor, you are good enough for yourself. Whether you are tall or short, you are good enough for yourself. Whether you are smart or not, you are good enough for yourself. Whether you have a degree or not, you are good enough for yourself. Whether you have a job or not, you are good enough for yourself. Because you are good enough for yourself. You are not doing people’s things. You are doing your own thing.
“You are here to live your life, not to prove yourself to anybody.”
As Maya Angelou once said, “You alone are enough.You have nothing to prove to anybody.” Yes, “you have nothing to prove to anybody.” You are here to live your life, not to prove yourself to anybody. Even though you want to prove yourself to someone, prove yourself to yourself. That is it!
We need friends. But we need good friends. Your friends can make or break you. So when you are choosing your friends, choose wisely. And if you cannot find a good friend, then be a good friend to someone.
“If you can’t find a good friend, be one.”
Be a good friend to yourself, then to others. Because you cannot give what you don’t have. If you are not a good friend to yourself, to your soul, how can you give it to others? Impossible.
When it comes to choosing your friends, you are in control. Because you are your own master. You can decide who you want to hang out with. You can change your life by changing the people you hang out with. Yes, you cannot change people. But you can change the people you hang out with. It is within your reach. It is within your power. If you do not do it, who will?
It is better to hang out with positive, happy people. Because positive people are infectious. You can do a lot of positive things when you are around positive people. They always carry love in their hearts. They carry happiness wherever they go. And if you want to reach higher in life, you need to be around positive people. You need to do everything within your power to get rid of negative people in your life. You go up with positive people. You go down with negative people.
If you hang out with negative people, you can never enjoy your best life. You can never do your best work. You can never live your best life. Why is that? Because they are energy suckers.
If you want to do your best work, if you want to live your best life, if you want to make yourself happier, you can never do it by hanging out with negative people. You must change yourself. You must let them (negative people) go, so that positive people can come into your life.
