Whether People Like Your Life Or Not, Do Not Betray Yourself

Do not betray yourself. Do not disrespect yourself. The relationship you have with yourself is yours and yours alone. Do not allow other people to control your life. Your life is your life. Whether people like your life or not, do not betray yourself. Whether people like you or not, do not give up on yourself. Whether people want you to succeed or not, do not betray your life. Because you are who you are. You are not here to copy other people. You are here to live your own life, to enjoy your life.

Do not worry yourself about what other people are saying about you. They have no control over your life. You are the owner of your life. You are responsible for your life, for your actions. Do not separate yourself from your soul. Your soul needs you. Because the more you separate yourself from your soul, the less your life will work for you. You will find it really hard to find happiness. Why is that? Because you are not who you say you are.

No matter what, you should never betray yourself. Always be true to yourself. Always respect yourself, your life. If you are not honest with yourself, there can be no growth in your life. Because growth, real growth, starts with you. In the words of Theodore Parker, “Never violate the sacredness of your individual self-respect. Be true to your own mind and conscience, your heart and your soul. So only can you be true to God.” If you want to know God, if you want to know yourself, you must be honest with yourself.

You Will Never Be The Same Person If You Give Up On Your Dream

If you want to be happy, follow your dream. Do not give up on your dream. Earl Nightingale once said, “Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.” If you want to grow, do not worry about the time it will take you to get there. Instead, worry about not pursuing your dream.

“The act of taking the first step is what separates the winners from the losers.”- Brian Tracy

Because if you give up on your dream, you will never get to where you are going. Don’t do it. No one knows your dream better than you. You know why you are chasing your dream. You know why you are doing what you are doing. And you know where your dream is taking you. You know it better than anyone. Do not give it up. If you do, you will never find happiness. If you give up on your dream, you will never be happy with what you have. To avoid that, no matter what, you must work really hard to make your dream happen. You must do whatever it takes to make your dream happen, to live your dream, to enjoy the process. Process matters.

“First say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do.”- Epitectus

To make your dream come true, do not just talk about it, you must take action. In the words of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, “Action springs not from thought, but from a readiness for responsibility.” Take responsibility for your life, for your future, for your actions. Do not wait for anyone to do it for you. Because you know your dream better than anyone. Do not give up on your dream. If you can see it, if you can think it, if you can plan it, you can take action. And if you can take action, you can make it happen. Do it for YOU.
