Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. We all make mistakes. When you make a mistake, don’t beat yourself up for making it. Mistake is part of growth. Mistake is part of success. Mistake is part of life. Mistake is not a weakness; it is a strength. When you make yours, it means you are trying to make things happen. Do not let failure stop you from growing. Because if you don’t make enough mistakes, you won’t grow. Be bold. Don’t be afraid to learn about what you don’t know. Knowledge is never enough. Remember that we learn more from failure than from success. When you fail, try to learn everything that you possibly can about the situation. Ask yourself some critical questions. Ask yourself, what could I have done differently? Be honest with yourself when you are answering it. Do not hide anything from yourself. You want to live, to grow, right? If yes, hiding something important from yourself is not the right way to go. When you do that, you are pulling yourself backward. You are not pushing yourself forward. To grow, you need yourself. Don’t wait for people to come and push you. If you can, push yourself. If not, ask for help. And celebrate it when you get it. Be grateful. Say, “Thanks.”

When you make a mistake, do not hide it. Let your trusted friends know what happened. You can’t change what happened, but you can rewrite the story. You can recreate the situation. You can reinvent yourself. Don’t forget to ask yourself, “What can I take away from here?” Don’t attend any pity party. It won’t help you. It will hurt you even more. Just try to see it as a way to learn more about yourself. Make sure you really learn from your mistakes. Do not take it for granted. Because if you don’t learn from it, you will repeat it again. When you learn from your mistakes, it makes you stronger, not weaker. Be brave. Keep going. Learn from it. Make it a habit to always learn from your failures. If it doesn’t work, do it again.

Make Yourself Important To The World, And The World Will Welcome You

It does not matter where you live, where you are from, what language you speak, where you work, what you drive, what you wear, we are one. If you have love in your heart, you can make the world a better place.

You can make your own world a better place to live, to eat, to work, to love, and to connect with your soul. You can make your workplace a better place to work. You can make your home the best home in the world. The question is: Can you make a better world without love?

“Make yourself necessary to the world, and mankind will give you bread…”- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Remember this: You can’t make the world a better place without first making yourself a better person. So, if you want to change the world, you must first change yourself. If you want to change your workplace, you must first change your thoughts. Why? Because everything starts with your own thought. The problem is not what you see, but how you interpret it. If you want to enjoy your life, always look for the beauty in everything. Don’t focus your attention on problems, but on solutions.

The world needs your love. Don’t hide it. The world needs your talents. Bring them out. If you don’t present yourself, no one can locate you. If you don’t tell people what you are selling, no one will know what you are selling. If you don’t tell people what you can do to change the world, no one will know what you are capable of doing. Don’t be timid in your actions. Be bold. Be brave. Let people know what you are capable of doing. And they will feed you. They will reward you with love and kindness.

Don’t assume that people know who you are. They don’t. If you want people to know what you are up to, tell them. Don’t sell yourself short. According to one famous Greek philosopher, “Life is too short to be small.” You are not cheap; you are expensive. You are not stupid; you are smart. You can make yourself. You can reinvent yourself.

The greatest value in life is to always do things to make yourself better every day. You cannot live your life without changing yourself. As the old saying goes, “If you are not changing, you are dying.” Change. Change yourself to change your life. If you want to change the world, change your life. Life is about change. Don’t stuck yourself. Make yourself useful to the world by digging yourself out of your comfort zone. Whatever you find to do to change your life, do it with all your love. Are you ready to make yourself necessary to the world?
