It takes time to really understand something, including you. We are quick to judge ourselves. We are good at pointing out what we are not good at. We love talking about our mistakes. We like to associate ourselves with people who think and act like us. Is that the way forward? Is that how to grow in life? Maybe, maybe not.
To know who you really are, you must be patient with yourself. You must tolerate yourself. You must be comfortable with both your mistakes and your ugly past. Yes, you must be comfortable with them. You can’t erase them just like that. They are part of your life. Instead of trying to erase your past, which is impossible, why not try to understand it. Why? When you understand your past, you can prepare for your present and your future.
“Be patient with yourself. You are growingstronger every day. The weight of the world will become lighter… and you will begin to shine brighter. Don’t give up.”
No one can lead you to yourself REAL self. Only you can do that. If you don’t know yourself, you can’t change your life. You can do it. You must be comfortable with yourself. No one can make you comfortable with yourself but you. Why not do it. What are you waiting for?
Life is too short to waste. Don’t waste yours. It is your life. Make yourself comfortable with who you are. Don’t put yourself down. Always lift yourself up. To do that, you must be patient with yourself.
To do great things in life, we must have the courage to confront our fears. We all want to achieve great things, but we lack the courage to start.
You can’t succeed in life without a courageous heart. It is what you need to move from point A to point B. You need a courageous heart to chase your dreams. If you don’t have a courageous heart, fear will take charge of your dreams.
To face your fear, you must cultivate a courageous heart. Let us start with the following strategies:
Don’t try to keep what you cannot keep. Trying to keep what you cannot keep is like breathing in oxygen and not letting out carbon dioxide. You are not going to enjoy it. The same is true for other things. If you can’t keep something, give it away. According to Jim Elliot, “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.” If you cannot let go of what you cannot keep, you cannot gain what you cannot lose. Think about it.
