Never let someone tell you that you aren’t enough or that you don’t have what it takes to better yourself. Don’t let them cause you to even question your personal value. Don’t let someone else dictate your worth for you. You deserve respect.
If they can’t see that you are amazing, then that is their problem, not yours. If someone continuously tells you that you are not enough, then leave them standing in place and go find the people that love you for you.
You are perfect just the way you are. You don’t need to fit into someone else’s idea of what you should be. As long as you’re doing the very best you can, then no one can tell you that it is not good enough. The only person you need to impress is yourself.
I know that it can be rough out there sometimes. This world can wear you down and cause you to want to give up. But don’t let it! Don’t let this world tell you that your best effort is not good enough. Because it truly is.
If at the end of the day, you can look at yourself in the mirror and say that you’ve done your best I’d say you’re right on track then.
Just because it might be hard, just because it may be scary doesn’t mean it’s not worth it. You can do anything you set your mind to. The fact that it’s hard and you might be nervous of the outcome is further proof that you should pursue it. I believe that every day we should challenge ourselves to do one thing that scares the hell out of us.
Personal growth can only be achieved by pushing ourselves and stretching the boundaries of what we once thought was impossible. It is only after we’ve faced our fears and removed the blockages that once held us captive when we are truly free to pursue our life’s purpose.
Life wasn’t made to be comfortable. There is no glory or redemption by sitting idly by and watching opportunity pass. If you want the rewards you’ll have to make the effort because, as they say, if you want to make an omelette-You’re going to have to break some eggs. That’s just the way it is, and something’s will never change.
But don’t you believe the naysayers. Don’t buy into their defeatist propaganda! You have within you the capability to do anything you set your mind to. Besides, most people only want to see us fail because they are too afraid to chase their own dreams. They’ve let that fear cripple them and lock them into a going-through-the-motions self-defeating prophecy.
Just imagine where we would be if Thomas Edison hadn’t pursued his invention ideas. Think about the Wright Bros. or Henry Ford and what life would be like if they hadn’t dared to dream and then chased their dreams down and wrestled with it until they succeeded.
So, know that you’re going to get messy. So what? You’re going to bruise and you’re going to batter yourself along the way. Scrapes & bruises heal. Besides, scars are proof of challenges faced, and a life well-lived.
Speaking of the Wright Brothers, how many broken bones, bumps, bruises, and ego crushing defeats do you think they suffered to get their flying machine to stay in the air? Now look at the state of aviation, and how far we’ve pushed that invention. It’s nothing short of incredible!
We have jets that can break the sound barrier by going faster than the noise that comes from their exhaust. We have gigantic transport planes that defy the laws of gravity and stay afloat thousands of miles above the face of the Earth, all while laden with tons of equipment and people. All of this possible because of the impossible dreamers who dared to never quit.
So what’s your excuse? What is it that is holding you back, fear? HA! You have to laugh in the face of your fears. Push through them, I promise you they are only temporary. You’ve got this!
Make yourself a list of all the things you’re afraid of trying. Then, go through that list and one by one, cross them off as you expand your life’s achievements. When you feel you’ve gone as far as you can go, dig deeper. Find that place inside of you wherein lies your courage. Tap that endless source of courage and live a little.
It is only through relentless self-discovery and personal growth that we become all that we are able. It is only after we’ve bloodied ourselves on the sharp edges of our unknown that we become the fully realized versions of ourselves. That person, I assure you is one worth getting to know.
So what are you waiting for? Get up off your rusty dusty, and move away from your T.V.- it is not your friend. Go out into the world and conquer your fears. You can do anything you set your mind to.
All you have to do is decide. Decide that you want more from this life. Decide that you deserve more, and each day make one major step towards that version of you. Be you. Be beautiful. Be blissfully blessed that you’re alive and get on your way to the best version of you ever!
