Who are you? What do you really want for yourself? What do you really want for your life? Why are you here? Do you know what you are good at? Do you know what you are not good at?

If you want to be successful in your life, you must focus on what you are good at. And to focus on what you are good at, you must first know who you are. Because you cannot be good at something if you do not know who you are.

If you don’t know who you are, you really can’t develop yourself.

So if you really want to make a difference in your life, here is how to go about it:

Go after what you want

If you can face what you want, you can develop yourself. If you can face what you really want for your life, you can grow yourself. But if you don’t know what you want, if you do not have the courage to face what you want, you can’t go for it. According to Barbara Sher, “You must go after your wish. As soon as you start to pursue a dream, your life wakes up and everything has meaning.” No matter how scary your dream may be, do not be scared to face it. Because if you do not have the courage to face your fears, you are not going to succeed.

Don’t play it too safe

If you want your life to change, if you want to change the direction of your life, you must NOT play it too safe. Do not be scared to make mistakes, to fail. People don’t try because they don’t want to fail. If you want to win, play it hard, not safe. Barbara Sher said, “When you play it too safe, you’re taking the biggest risks of your life. Time is the only wealth we’re given.” To succeed, you must take risks. If you fail, do it again.

Focus on the goodness within you

That is why you should always try to be around great people. When you are with great people, they will make you bigger than yourself. When you are with small-minded people, they will make you smaller than you really are.

To defeat people’s opinions of you, you must have the courage to focus on the goodness within you. You have it. All you need to do is to reconnect with your true self. Do not try to be good. You are great!

According to Eckhart Tolle, “You do not become good by trying to be good, but by finding the greatness that is already within you allowing that goodness to emerge.” You are already good. Do not try to convince other people to believe in you, in your dreams. Because other people cannot make you who you are not. Other people cannot give you what you cannot give yourself.

You already have what it takes to do great things in your life.

Focus on your inner stillness

You don’t here yourself because you do not listen to yourself. Your inner voice talks to you every day, but you never listen. You are always busy. You are always working, always jumping from place to place. You never find the time to listen to your inner voice.

Remember, you can’t hear if you do not listen. Eckhart Tolle said, “When you lose touch with inner stillness, you lose touch with yourself. When you lose touch with yourself, you lose yourself in the world.” It is good to listen to yourself. Do not be uncomfortable with yourself. When you connect with your inner life, you connect with your true self.

5 Important Lessons You Can Learn From Time

Time keeps life moving. If you are not using your time, you are losing your time. To avoid that from happening to you, here are 8 best lessons you can learn from time:

If you want to enjoy the moment, you must live in the moment.

If you identify with the past, you cannot be identifying with the now. That is the point. You cannot do both at the same time. There is only the now. As soon as you identify with your memory, you cut out the experience of the Now.”- Benjamin Creme

Your past is important to you, to where you are, to where you are going. But to understand where you are, to live in the moment, you must live in the moment, in the Now.

Growth takes time.

“Time ripens all things. No man is born wise.”- Miguel de Cervantes

Growth does not happen overnight. It takes time to grow, to change. It is a process, not a destination. Do not worry about where you are right now. With love, with hard work, with focus, with resilience, with determination, you can become an expert.

There is a time for everything.

“There is a time for some things, and a time for all things; a time for great things, and a time for small things.”- Miguel de Cervantes

Spend your quality time on major things, not on minor things. It does not matter what you are doing, if it does not worth your time, do not do it. If you do, you are not using your time wisely.

Cherish every moment, because it will never come again.

“Time is a companion who goes with us on the journey and reminds us to cherish every moment, because it will never come again.”- Brannon Braga

If you waste your money, your life won’t end. If you waste your time, you will never get it back. Enjoy every moment of your life. It is important. If you lose it, it will never come back to you.

Time changes everything.

“Time brings all things to pass.”- Aeschylus

Whatever you are going through right now, with time, it shall come to pass. Because time brings everything to an end. Believe in yourself. Always believe in yourself.
