“Learn to value yourself, which means: to fight for your happiness.- Ayn Rand, writer

“Happiness can exist only in acceptance.”- George Orwell

If you want to live a happy life, you must accept who you are. You must accept your failures, your mistakes, your strengths and weaknesses. Learn how to be happy and comfortable with yourself. You are unique. You are special.

You are who you are. Nobody can change you. You can change yourself by changing your mind. If you want to change yourself, start by changing how you think and what you consistently think about yourself. The rest will follow.

Once you allow your mind to accept who you are, there is nothing anyone can do to change you, or to make you unhappy. Nobody can make you unhappy. Only you can make yourself unhappy. You do that by trying to live other people’s lives. If you try to be who you are not, you are painfully living someone else’s life. How painful is that? Very painful!

Live your life. Accept yourself. “Nobody is better than you.” Say it to yourself every day. Thank you for saying it!

There is a place for everything.

“A place for everything, and everything in its place.”– Samuel Smiles

Wherever you are in your life, accept it. Don’t regret it. It is the right place for you to grow and be a better you. But to recognize it, you must pay attention to what is happening around you.

Good actions cures fear.

“Good actions gives strength to ourselves, and inspire good actions in others.”– Samuel Smiles

If you want to change your life, you must take action. Talk is cheap, but action is expensive. If you have the courage to take action, you can change what you don’t like about your life. If you want to cure fear, take action.

Don’t wait for people to help you. Take responsibility for your life.

“The spirit of self-help is the root of all genuine growth in the individual...”- Samuel Smiles

You need people to succeed in life. But if you are not ready to lift yourself up, you are going to wait forever. Don’t wait forever. You have what it takes to start the process. Just start!

Enthusiasm is the key to success

“Enthusiasm… the sustaining power of all great action.”– Samuel Smiles

Enthusiasm is a secret weapon. You know where it is. You know how to use it to your advantage. When things are dark, you call on it. Sometimes it answers you. Other times it fails you. But no matter what, enthusiasm is the key to success. If you have it, there is no mountain you cannot climb. But without it, you can’t even leave your bed. Enthusiasm is the way.

Help others to help yourself

“The duty of helping one’s self in the highest sense involves the helping of one’s neighbors.”- Samuel Smiles

In life, you always reap what you sow. So if you want your neighbor to be nice to you, you must sow the seeds of love. You must sow the seeds of happiness. You must sow the seeds of compassion. Why? Because whatever you send out into the world will come back to you. If you plant hate, you will receive hate. If you plant love, you will receive love. Any time, any day, love is better than hate. If you want to help yourself, help others. Love wins!

Life is what we ourselves make it.

Life will always be to a large extent what we ourselves make it.“- Samuel Smiles

You are the CEO of your life. You can live it the way you want. Life is about moving forward. If you want to move forward, be a forward thinker. Don’t focus on what is hurting you. Instead, you should focus on what is helping you. Life is about what is helping you versus what is hurting you. The choice is yours.
