You Disrespect Yourself When …

We disrespect ourselves when we don't 
pay attention to our lives,
when we are too busy to take care of
ourselves, when we can't stand up for ourselves.

We disrespect ourselves when we don't 
reject other people's opinions.
We disrespect ourselves when we 
don't do what we say we are going to do.

We disrespect ourselves when we 
are not true to ourselves.

But you can change yourself.
Start by treating yourself with love,
With respect.
When you respect yourself, 
others will respect you.
When you treat others with respect,
other people will treat you with respect.

You respect yourself when you love
yourself, when you accept yourself
as you are, and when you accept 
your weaknesses.

You respect yourself when you 
choose yourself, when you choose life.

Questions That Matter

Great questions matter. Successful people ask great questions. Unsuccessful people don't. 
Successful people ask questions to get more questions. On the other hand, unsuccessful people ask questions to get more answers. 
Questions are not about answers. They are about more questions. 
If your questions are producing more answers, then they are wrong. They are not strong enough. They are not philosophical enough. 
But if your questions are giving you more questions, then keep asking them. They are the right ones.
If you want to grow, ask great questions. Because great questions lead to great answers. 
If you want to grow, you must ask questions that matter.
Let us start with you. Ask yourself,
"What do I really want? where do I want to go? How do I get there?
Do I know what I really want for myself? 
Am I planning my life? What am I doing to make my dreams come true? 
Am I doing what is required of me? Am I doing my best? Am I giving my best?
Am I treating myself with love and respect? 
Am I treating other people with love and respect?
Am I living my life? Am I doing what makes me happy? Am I doing what I love?
If what I am doing is not working, why is it not working? What is holding me back?
What am I doing to get what I want? Do I have what it takes? Am I brave enough? 
Who are the people around you? Ask yourself, "What are my friends doing? Are they moving forward?
Are they growing? Are they treating me with love and respect? 
Are they getting things done? If not, why?
Are they taking risks? What are they doing to change their lives?
If  your friends are not growing, then why are you doing with them?
If you want to grow, you must hang around doers, not talkers.
