The best thing you can do for yourself today is to feel good about yourself. You can’t do your best if you feel terrible about yourself. Stop feeling bad about yourself. You are you. If you don’t love yourself, no one will love you. If you think you are not good enough, you are going to act according to your feelings. That is, if you think you are not good enough, you will never feel good about yourself.
If you want to change how you see yourself, you must first believe in yourself. Whether we want to hear it or not, everything starts with self-belief. Because if you believe you can change your self-worth, you can. If you believe you can change your life, you can. If you believe you are good enough, you are good enough. And if you believe you can change yourself, you can. On the other hand, if you think you are not good enough, you are not. It shouldn’t be so. You are not here on this earth by mistake. You are here to live your life, to love your life, to live in harmony with yourself, to do great things, not to beat yourself up. If you want to change yourself, your self-worth, you must be your own cheerleader.
According to Brian Tracy, “You have within you the potential to accomplish wonderful things with your life. Your greatest responsibilities are to dream big dreams, decide exactly what you want, make a plan to achieve it… take action every single day in the direction of your dreams and goals, and resolve to never, never, never give up. When you take these actions, you put yourself on the side of the angels. You become unstoppable and your success becomes inevitable.”
It is your life. You are responsible for making it better than it was yesterday. To do that, you must decide exactly what you want to do with your life. Remember, your dreams are not going to come true just by thinking positively about them. You must take action. You must get out of your comfort zone. You must have the courage to do what you haven’t done before. Positive thinking is good, but not enough to make your dreams come true.
If you want your dreams, your goals to come true, you must do something about them. You must put your dreams in front of you every day. When you do nothing about your dreams, you are actually doing something about them. You are ignoring them. You are closing the door to your success. You are closing the door to your future life. You can change that by doing a little more than you have always done in the past. Your ability to do a little more can change your life. Nothing happens without taking action.
Do not let what happened to you in the past to determine your present life. To do that, you must learn how to guide your mind against negative thoughts. In the words of Nigel Cumberland, “Not allowing what happened in the past to determine your future starts in your mind.” If you want to get to where you want to be, you must do everything within your power to protect your mind from invaders.
If want to achieve your dreams, don’t be afraid to follow your own path. Dan Rockwell writes, “Adopt practices that express who you are to become who you aspire to be.” That is the fastest way to get to where you want to be. The question is: Are you ready to walk alone?
