To stand up for others, you must first stand up for yourself. To represent others, you must first represent yourself. To lift other people up, you must first lift yourself up. Why? Because you cannot give to others what you do not have within you.
Here is what the great Martin Luther King Jr. said about standing up for other people: He said,” I am coming to feel that the people of ill will have used time much more effectively than the people of good will. … We must come to see that human progress never rolls in on wheels of inevitability. It comes through the tireless efforts and persistent work of men willing to be co-workers with God, and without the hard work time itself becomes an ally of the forces of social stagnation.” Change comes when we work together. It is not going to be easy, but “we can do it when we do it together.”
No one is perfect. We are all learners. We are always learning new things. We are always learning new things about ourselves. Learning is good for you. It is good for your life, for your growth. If we are not growing, we are dying. If we are not growing, we are sleep-walking through life. That is not why you are here. You are here to grow, not to die. And if you are not moving forward in your life, check what you are doing every day.
What you are doing now is preparing your tomorrow. If you don’t do well today, you won’t do well tomorrow. So if you want to have a better tomorrow, you must first do well today. You must take today seriously. You must do everything well today. You must focus on what will get you what you want in your life.
My dreams are not your dreams. To achieve greatness, to achieve success in your life, you must focus on your life.
Doubts are powerful, but do not let them stop you from doing, living, enjoying, and breathing your life. Eric Hoffer said, “Our doubts about ourselves cannot be banished except by working at that which is the one and only thing we know we ought to do.” Don’t worry about making mistakes. You cannot grow without making mistakes. It is good to make mistakes. If you are not making mistakes, you are not making progress in your life.
And if you want to make progress, remember that no one is perfect in life. It does not exist. It is not even possible to be perfect. In the words of Wolfgang Riebe, “No one is perfect- that is why pencils have erasers. ” If everybody is perfect, the world will be a boring place to live in. No one is perfect. Whatever you want to do in your life, don’t let self-doubt stop you from doing it. It is okay to doubt yourself. But do not let self-doubt stop you from jumping off the cliff.
If you want to grow, you must cultivate the courage to jump off the cliff. You must leave your comfort zone. You must try something new. Stop doing the same thing over and over again. Walt Disney said, “All your dreams can come true if you have the courage to pursue them.” Don’t stop dreaming big. If you have the courage to make your dreams happen, they will come true. Go for it!
