Don’t Let Life Discourage You

You need courage to say yes to life. Simply put, “It takes courage to say yes to life.”

To live your life, you must have the courage to say no to the things that are hurting you. It is very important.

Richard L. Evans said, “Don’t let life discourage you; everyone who got where he is had to begin where he was.” Do you believe that?

If you believe, you are right. If you don’t believe, you are also right.

Starting something new is hard. But not doing anything is a bad idea. Seth Godin writes, “The only thing worse than starting something and failing is not starting something.” If you do not start something, you will fail at something.

To win is to play. If you are not a participant, you are a bystander. People don’t celebrate bystanders; they celebrate participants.

If you want to win, be a player, not a spectator.

Here Is Why You Should Embrace Your Weakness

Your strength does not grow out of your strength. Your strength grows out of your weakness. Your weakness is what makes you unique. It is yours. Nothing is the same. “Everything is different.” Your weakness is another person’s strength. Your strength is another person’s weakness. That is why you should NEVER beat yourself up about anything. It won’t help you get closer to your true life.

No one is perfect. And no one is good at everything. Some people are good at mathematics. Other people are good at history. That is what life is all about: It is about imperfection.

“If you want to grow yourself, you must redefine your relationship with your weakness.”

If you want to change yourself, if you want to grow yourself, do not see your weakness as your weakness, see it as a chance to better your life. If you pay attention to your weakness, you can learn a valuable lesson from it. But if you don’t embrace your weakness, you are not going to learn anything from it.

Your weakness is your learning opportunity. Don’t waste it. Take it. Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Our strength grows out of our weakness.” If you want to improve your life, you must pay attention to your weakness. Don’t ignore your weakness, develop it. If you want to really improve your life, redefine your relationship with your weakness.
