Don’t forget where you came from and help anyone who wants out but don’t let anyone pull you back. If you come from a bad place, getting out it not a bad thing or at least it doesn’t have to be. You don’t have to look down on where you came from either. Once you have made it out, look back and see who you inspired. They are the ones you reach back and help.
Sometimes the best thing you can do is show others it is possible to do the impossible. Focus on those who want to do the same and give encouragement to the haters. They only hate because they are scared. Don’t take their crap but don’t give any back. Your peace is more important than their hate. You can’t help those who won’t do what they need to change yet complain about the same problems day in and out. Don’t keep those people company in the valley, just keep showing them the view from the top of the mountain. It’s up to them to climb.
Break the habit of thinking that what others say is your truth. It is THEIR truth and how they view the world but has nothing to do with you. The next time you catch yourself judging someone, ask yourself what you can learn about yourself because it is all about you too. We can always learn something about ourselves when we start to judge or say something bad about someone else and if you are smart you will reflect on this.
Want to live a happy life? Be successful? Don’t waste time thinking about what others say or judging them yourself. You can’t do two things at once (not these things anyway) and if you have to choose, always choose something for your better good. You only have this one life, how do you want to spend it?
Money is like air and food; we need it to survive, but it is only a tool. Your life and work should be about your end goal. Ask yourself what you end goal is and if you aren’t living it then make some changes. Do you think you are here to work and pay taxes? Do you want that to be your life? If your answer is no, find out how you can make your life the way you want to live.
People have this amazing ability to adapt and become versatile, but they have convinced themselves otherwise. You don’t have to live according to the dogma someone else invented, and it’s all invented. There is no set way to live your life; there may be consequences, but you are still the one who makes the choices. Own those choices and make sure you are happy with them or change. You can live with little money if you are willing to change your lifestyle. No more excuses about not having money. Either make more or live with less.
Having grown up in a culture where blaming everyone from your parents to the dog down the street for your unhappiness was normal, I have found the truth to be all inside of me. I am the only one who’s perspective on a situation I can change. I am the only one allowing the negative feelings vs. the positive ones. I am the only one who can change my mind about how I think about something.
Have you ever had a change of heart about something you felt about strong? In a way, it is the same only it is more of a conscious change. You just decide you are going to be happy, or you are not going to let a person or situation make you unhappy. It is that simple and difficult at the same time. Honestly, I now find it easy to decide to have happiness rule my day because I won’t allow any more unhappiness. It took some time, but I make that decision each morning before I get out of bed now. Does that mean everything is perfect? No, but my frame of mind is perfectly handling everything.
Do you have anything you would like to add or comments you would like to share? I would love to hear from you.
