Richard Feynman said, “The first principle is that you must not fool yourself and you are the easiest person to fool.”

“Self- awareness is the key to a successful life.” If you don’t know yourself, if you are not honest with yourself, if you keep deceiving yourself, if you keep running away from reality, you will NEVER know yourself. You will keep fooling yourself.

No one expects life to be easy. But life is much more interesting if you have the courage to face life.

No matter what you are going through, go through it. Don’t lie to yourself. Don’t run away from your problems. They are your problems to fix. No one can handle your problems, but you.

Pick your fight wisely. Don’t waste your time, your energy, your resources on things you are not good at. Do what you are good at, and do it very well.

“Success comes from doing what you are good at.”

“Failure comes from doing what you are not good at.”

Don’t do something because people want you to do it. Don’t do something because your parents or your friends want you to do it.

Do something because you want to do it. Do it because it is the right thing to do for yourself. For your growth. For your development. For your career. For your relationships. For your health. For your happiness. For your spiritual being. Just do it!

Don’t allow people to make critical decisions for you. Make your decisions yourself, and take responsibility for making them.

Don’t pretend to be busy when you are not really doing anything. If you do that, you are wasting your time.

Remember that if you waste your time, you are wasting your life. Don’t waste your life. Don’t lie to yourself. Be honest with yourself.

If you want to be successful in life, be honest with yourself. Don’t fool yourself.

Are you ready to stop fooling yourself?

When you feel good about yourself, you feel good about the things around you. Your life. Your relationships. Your work. Your health. Your spirituality.

“Positive people feel better about themselves.”

“Negative people feel bad about themselves.”

“Positive people are more productive than negative people.”

Why is that? What can we do about it? Can we really do something to change how we see the things around us?

If you feel negative about yourself, about things, you will view the word in a negative way. But if you feel positive about about yourself, you will feel positive about the world and the things around you.

How you see yourself is how you will see the world.”

A positive attitude gives energy.”– Edward de Bono

To add to that, “A negative attitude sucks energy.”

Positive people believe that everything is possible. Negative people believe that nothing is possible. If you ask them to do something,

People with positive attitudes will say, “We can do it.”

People with negative attitudes will say, “We can’t do it.”

If you want something to get done, hire people with positive attitudes.

If you want to maintain a positive attitude every day, don’t compare yourself to others. They are not who you think they are.

Always think in a positive way. If you think in a positive way, you will feel positive about yourself. If you think in a negative way, you will feel negative about yourself.

Do not feel bad about yourself. Always feel good about yourself by focusing on the most important things in your life, and taking actions to make them happen.

Do not doubt yourself. If you believe in yourself, people will believe in you. If you don’t, no one will. Remember, “success in life starts with self-belief.”

Surround yourself with positive people. The more you hang around positive people, the more positive you will be. “Positive people celebrate other positive people.”

A positive attitude is contagious.”

Read positive quotes or books before you start your day. Reading positive things will help you program your mind for positive things.

Expect positive things. You get what you expect. If you expect negative things, you will get negative things. If you expect positive things, you will get positive things.

Don’t dwell on the past. You cannot change the past, but you can change tomorrow. How? By focusing on what you are doing right now. Prepare for your tomorrow today. What you do today will determine how successful you will be tomorrow.

Take responsibility for your actions. No matter what went wrong in the past, no matter what is happening now, and no matter what will happen tomorrow, hold yourself accountable. Don’t blame anyone for your mistakes. Don’t blame yourself for your mistakes. Instead, accept your mistakes, learn from your mistakes, and move on.

No matter where we are in life, attitude matters!
