Robert Collier said, “If you don’t make things happen then things will happen to you.” You have what it takes to make things happen for you, not to you. It is important to make things happen, to make your dreams come true, to check where you are. To do that, you need to be honest with yourself. You need to tell yourself what you need to hear. If not, you will never grow.
“If you believe you can make things happen for you, you can.”
When it comes to your growth, you have what it takes to create the life you want for yourself. You can create your life. All you need to do is to tell yourself the truth. Don’t lie about where you are right now. Jim Stovall says, “The most destructive lies we ever tell are those we tell ourselves.” We lie to ourselves to cover our troubles. If you want to get to the next level, you must stop telling yourself lies. If you don’t stop, you will remain where you are.
To leave where you are, you must make things happen for you, not to you. You have what it takes to do it. You have what it takes to change your life. You are stronger, smarter, better than you think you are. All you need to make things happen for you is to determine where you want to go, what you want, and how to make things happen. And don’t forget to assess where you are right now. It is important. Because if you want to know yourself, you must have the courage to question yourself.
The right questions will give you the right answers. To face yourself, you must first believe that you can win. You must believe that you have what it takes to take the first step. It is the first step that separates the doers from the talkers.It is the first step that separates successful people from unsuccessful people. It is the first step that separates winners from losers. So if you want to make things happen for you, you must learn the act of taking the first step. It matters. Are you ready to take the first step?
Love brings love. Help brings help. If you want to get ahead in your life, if you want to grow, if you want to change your world, you must help other people change their lives. If you want people to help you, to do something for you, to give you love, to make you a better person, you must put people first.
People like to help other people. Human beings are good. It doesn’t matter how many times you have helped other people. Keep helping people. The world needs helpers. The world needs dreamers. You can’t do everything by yourself. You need a mentor. You need someone to show you the way to where you are going. Why is that? Because if you don’t know where you are going, you will arrive at the wrong destination.
And to get yourself back, you need someone who loves you. You need someone who can really tell you what you need to hear. You need someone who is not afraid to talk to you. You need to hear the truth. When it comes to your growth, you need to hear the truth from your mentor. Truth comes from love. Truth comes from acceptance.
If you want to grow, you need other people. You can’t do everything by yourself. You can do something, but you can’t do everything. And don’t even try to be everywhere. Because if you do, you are going to end up at the wrong place. And if you are nowhere, you will never grow. So if you want to become who you were created to be, you need to put people first. When you put people, they will put you first. No matter how small or big, always try to do something to lift people up. According to Claude M. Bristol, “Always try to do something for the other fellow and you will be agreeably surprised how things come your way- how many pleasing things are done for you.”
People don’t want material things; they just want someone to be there for them. They want love. They want someone who will love and accept them for who they are. They want people who will lift them up. They don’t want to hang out with someone who is always putting them down. They don’t want to be around someone who is abusive. From today, always try to do something positive every day. If you do, you will always attract positive things into your life.
