Anthony Trollope once said, “Never think that you’re not good enough yourself. A man should never think that. People will take you very much at your own reckoning.” You should never think that. Because you are a special human being.

“The purpose of living is growth.”

God didn’t create you by mistake. God created you for a purpose. You are here for a reason that is bigger than you. And that reason should be your mission. Do not make yourself smaller than you really are. People will treat you the way you want to be treated.

“Never think that you’re not good enough yourself.”- Anthony Trollope

You are good enough. You are smart enough. You are tall enough. You are rich enough. You are beautiful enough. You are you. You are here to follow your dreams. You are here to achieve your dreams. You are not here to compete with anybody. You are here to compete with yourself.

Whether you are rich or poor, you are good enough for yourself. Whether you are tall or short, you are good enough for yourself. Whether you are smart or not, you are good enough for yourself. Whether you have a degree or not, you are good enough for yourself. Whether you have a job or not, you are good enough for yourself. Because you are good enough for yourself. You are not doing people’s things. You are doing your own thing.

“You are here to live your life, not to prove yourself to anybody.”

As Maya Angelou once said, “You alone are enough. You have nothing to prove to anybody.” Yes, “you have nothing to prove to anybody.” You are here to live your life, not to prove yourself to anybody. Even though you want to prove yourself to someone, prove yourself to yourself. That is it!

Why Excuses Are Bad For You

You cannot make yourself happy, you cannot achieve your goals unless you stop making excuses. Why do we make excuses? Why do we run away from opposition? Why do we hide behind excuses? Are we helping ourselves? Or are we harming ourselves? Think about it.

We make excuses to cover our fears. It is easier to do than to face our fears. It is easier to do than to face our circumstances. If you want to grow, if you want to move yourself closer to your dreams, you MUST stop making excuses. Because you cannot live peacefully while making excuses. You cannot get better while making excuses. You cannot make yourself happier while making unnecessary excuses. If you want to grow, you must stop it. Excuses kill dreams. They stuck people where they are. And they can stuck you if you don’t take action.

Whatever you want to do, then do it. Stop telling yourself how something cannot be done. Start telling yourself how it can be done. Stop making excuses for yourself. Start confronting your demons. Start standing up for yourself. Start thinking for yourself. Because when you think for yourself, you can do the impossible. You can change the world around you.

When you face yourself, when you are honest with yourself, when you face your monsters, you get really better. It makes you stronger. And to overcome one monster gives you greater power to overcome the next monster. Remember that life is not without obstacles. It is how you manage them that matters.
