Stay true to yourself. Do your own thing and don’t worry about what people say. It might not make sense to them but that’s ok. Don’t expect everyone to understand you. They don’t have to. It’s between you and the Almighty. So keep going.
Do not engage with someone with lower behavior. You will be dealing with someone who projects, who has ego problems, who is self centered, who lacks empathy, who is emotionally immature, who has unhealed wounds of their own, who has a need to feel superior, who needs to control others, and who ends up hurting just about everyone who crosses their path. Stay away from such people & such behaviour.
Move forward by healing your own hurts. Improve yourself. And forget about inviting other’s toxicity into your space. You are your own responsibility. Make sure you make yourself a better version of yourself with time.
Somethings don’t get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can’t. Maybe some of us will never be fully okay, but at least we’re here. We’re still trying. We’re doing the best we can. That’s worth celebrating.
If you’re reading this, congratulations, you made it today. You made it. Stay consistent & clap for yourself. (Not my words.)
Nobody wants to tell you why discipline is so important. Discipline is the strongest form of self-love. It is ignoring current pleasures for bigger rewards to come. It’s loving yourself enough to give yourself everything you’ve ever wanted.
Everyday that you show up, even when it’s hard and when you don’t feel like it, you are making a difference. So, even on the hard days, even on the days where you’d like to hang back and not show up, remember: the world needs the magic inside of you. BE YOU SHAMELESSLY & BE AN AUTHENTIC VERSION OF YOURSELF.
Your work matters. Your consistency matters. Your ideas matters. Your presence matters. So, keep it up.
Learn to get back on track. And get used to it. Because there will be times where you mess up. If it’s only one meal, one day or a weekend or even a week or an entire month, It will happen. And that’s okay. The secret is to learn to forgive yourself and start over again.
Just get up and leave the unhealthy habits behind you every single day, you must get used to this discomfort. Some failures are necessary to taste SUCCESS.
Every day make a tiny agreement with yourself and follow through with it. You’ll start to see yourself as a person who honours their word, even when no one’s watching. And that’s what creates true self-confidence.
Hope will guide you every step of the way making sure that you find your way to the other side of this moment. This is not the final stop in your journey. Take a deep breath. Look for the north star of hope, get to higher ground, you’ll see a path exists. So, choose to look for possibility even when reality shows you a dead-end.
Last but not least, remember that inside you is all the bravery and courage you need to get to the other side of this moment. DON’T TAKE YOUR EYES OFF HOPE.
Self development is a continuous journey of trial and error. The process will test your strengths, reveal your weaknesses, and empower you to put yourself first (finally). Keep going, no matter what. Dive deep into answering the questions that you refuse to, no matter how much the answer hurts. You deserve respect and understanding in the process of self-discovery.
I hope this reminder serves you well to help you know that we are all in this together, on a journey of self-discovery and growth. Be honest, be open, and be less critical of yourself.
If everyone in the world were to hold on to all their past resentments and cling to their pain, there would be no hope for the future because everyone would be angry and bitter, glued to their past. The practice of forgiveness is powerful beyond words. Forgiveness is an infectiously beautiful act of humility. It means you are able to put aside your ego and decide that it’s better to be happy and at peace than to be “right”.
Invest your energy in things that make you happy and don’t worry about being right. The practice of forgiveness is our most important contribution to the healing of the world. (Not my words.)
Stop running away from negative emotions. Stop running away from feelings. Stop pretending like you have it all together. Start accepting that you feel messed up. Let yourself breakdown to get ready for a breakthrough.
Sometimes when you are always focusing on being positive, you are avoiding the pain that makes you stronger. DON’T BE POSITIVE, BE AUTHENTIC.
Not a diet. Not a lifestyle. Not for anyone, but for me. Not for a day, but everyday. Not to feel good in a specific outfit, but to feel good in my skin. Not for the beach, but for my mind. Not for a competition, but for THE COMPETITION i have created for myself, by myself, to become a better version of myself.
To attract better, you have to become better. You can’t do the same things and expect change. Transform your mindset. Upgrade your habits. Think positive. It all starts with you and how you feel about yourself. That’s the only way forward; CONSISTENCY. Be hopeful and consistent with your evolution.
We must understand how important it is to be consistent. Everything that has value in life is a product of consistency. Success, health, fitness, wealth, friendships, relationships, and all other aspirations are all about consistency.
Life is too damn short to live in a mediocre way. Wake up with a purpose and make the best of each day and your short time on this earth. Stop saying “I’ll do this when I have more money” or “I’ll start when I’m more settled”. Stop making excuses. What if I told you that all you need is what you have right now. That’s all you need to just make a start.
It doesn’t matter if you’re 17 or 50, set your alarm for tomorrow morning and wake up with a purpose. Always give your best and live your best life. Don’t let the years just pass you by because we don’t get another chance. This is it.
You get what you expect, have you noticed that? You expect to survive, and so you do. You expect to have a roof over your head, and so you do. You expect to live alright, and so you do.
But you don’t expect extraordinary things, so they don’t come. You don’t expect magnificent money to flow into your experience and so it cannot get in. The only thing that comes to you is what you are expecting to come to you.
While you may not have control over everything that happens in life, you do have control over your mindset and perspective.
You can choose to think that you’re down on your luck, or you decide to see that you are being set-up for something extraordinary.
You can choose to focus on all the chaos happening around you, or you decide to look for the good that is emerging.
You can choose to live in a state of victimhood, or you can decide to live from the stance of a champion.
Make the decision that come what may, this new year is going to be good and beautiful and something magical, not because the world’s problems finally faded away, but because you chose to start changing your perspective.
Don’t let your life go by unnoticed. Life is made of moments full of beauty and magic, waiting for us to notice. You must not let the distractions and busyness keep you from experiencing everything this beautiful life has to offer. Get out into nature, slow it all down. Watch more sunrises with the only intent of watching the sun gloriously rise. Look at your partner’s face deeply and tenderly, with the only intent of truly seeing them.
When life feels like it’s spinning around you and you can’t catch up, return to the beautiful moment of now, where everything is exactly as it should be. Notice your breathing, notice where you are tense. Release. Breathe. Feel. Notice. (Not my words.)
1. Mess with your head. 2. Intentionally and repeatedly do and say things that they know upset you. 3. Expect you to prioritize them but refuse to prioritize you. 4. Can’t and won’t apologise sincerely. 5. Act like the victim when confronted with their abusive behavior.
You are allowed to fail. You are allowed to start again from scratch. You are allowed to change your mind. You are allowed to try over and over again. You are allowed to struggle. No path is ever a perfectly straight line. Your path will twist and turn in directions you never expected. It will bring you unexpected highs and lows that make you stronger.
You don’t need to have it all figured out right now. Because you will get where you are meant to go in time.
TOUGH TIMES NEVER LAST, BUT TOUGH PEOPLE DO. (Not my words.)
You are responsible for your happiness. In fact, you create it. You attract it. You manifest it. You are the architect of your reality. You choose your thoughts, your perceptions, and your reaction to external forces.
You possess all of the tools needed to expand your awareness, to orchestrate the evolution of your consciousness, to choose happiness, to choose love. You are that powerful. Create the life you deserve. Vibrate love.
• Minding own business. • Regulating & controlling own emotions in a healthy way. • Having an open mind. • Upholding own boundaries. • Always seeking to evolve. • Practicing acceptance even when it’s hard. • Finding the courage to do something about the things you usually complain about. • Expressing self-compassion and compassion towards others. • Creating peace for yourself by protecting your energy.
Take chances, take a lot of them. Because honestly, no matter where you end up and with whom it always end up the way it should be. Your mistakes make you who you are. You learn and grow with each choice you make. Everything is worth it. Say how you feel, always. Be you, and be okay with it.
No matter what you do, no matter how many times you screw up and think to yourself “there’s no point to carry on”, no matter how many people tell you that you can’t do it, keep going. Keep going, that’s the only way to go. Don’t quit.
Don’t quit, because a month or a year from now you will be way more closer to your goals & desires than you are now. Yesterday you said tomorrow. Make today count. KEEP GOING.
Every single human being is capable of being toxic, has been, currently is, etc. But some people have the desire to be educated on it and do better while others will ignore any accountability and continue to act the same way.
To attract better, you have to become better. You can’t do the same things and expect change.
Transform your mindset. Upgrade your habits. Think positive.
Be hopeful and consistent with your evolution. It all starts with you and how you feel about yourself.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. There’s a reason I don’t believe in all vegetarian or vegan diet. It’s not just harmful for your own body, it also stunts the growth of next generation. Watch this video on “WHY VEGAN DIET IS JUST DUMB & IT NEVER WORKS!!”.)
Taking control of your thoughts is not always easy, it takes strength. But, just like anyone can become physically strong, anyone can become mentally strong through effort and practice. At first, taking control of your thoughts may feel difficult, but it’ll begin to feel natural with practice.
As your journey, you will find the practice of taking control of your thoughts and fixing your mind on goodness, abundance, and hope to be an integral part of experiencing the fulfillment of dreams.
Because, we live in our thoughts. And while we cannot always hand-pick our experiences and the circumstances we encounter, we can shape our circumstances to benefit us with our thoughts. so, get to it. Give your best. Work hard and let your purpose drive you to take control of your thoughts and move with joy. TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR THOUGHTS.
Stop comparing. Start living your unique journey. You need to ignore what everyone else is doing and achieving. Your life is about breaking your own limits and outgrowing yourself to live your best life. You are not in competition with anyone else. Plan to outdo your past, not other people.
At some point you have to stop being so angry, you have to stop being so sad, you have to stop killing yourself, and start being gentle with yourself. At some point you have to just let it all go and be happy. You have to spread love instead of being afraid of it. You have to love yourself and everyone around you before its too late.
Don’t waste away being unhappy over trivial things. Don’t do it. Don’t do it to yourself and dont let other people do it to you. Life is too small to celebrate the goodness & too long to stay unhappy. BE A HAPPY HAPPENING VERSION OF YOURSELF.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.
You have to be willing to leave your comfort zone to grow not only as a human being but to push your own boundaries. I encourage anyone chasing dreams to be fearless; go into emotional areas that aren’t always comfortable or comprehensible.
Do something out of your comfort zone today. Sometimes the things that scare us help us grow.
What does your heart desire? Imagine it. Say it out loud.
Too often, we keep ourselves from experiencing the grandness that life has for us because we believe the narrative that certain experiences or success is unattainable for us. For others, we take on the belief system that it’s wrong to have desire or dream big daring dreams. But, in reality neither of those things are true.
Keep asking yourself “WHAT DO YOU WANT?”. Desire isn’t something selfish or prideful, rather, it’s something beautiful that we have been given by the almighty.
Understand this: You can sound confident and have anxiety. You can look healthy but feel like shit. You can look happy and be miserable inside. You can be good looking and feel ugly. So be kind. BE KIND because every person is fighting a battle you know nothing about.
I don’t believe in coincidences. I think that things happen the way that they are supposed to. When you really look at and evaluate every experience you’ve had, it’s a direct result of your actions and thoughts.
Don’t fight or wish away unexpected occurrences. In time, and in its own way, it will prove to better your life in some way. I’m a firm believer that everything happens for a reason.
You’re not the same person you were a year ago, a month ago, or a week ago. You’re always growing. Experiences don’t stop. That’s life. And the very experiences that seem so hard when you’re going through them are the ones you’ll look back on with gratitude for how far you’ve come.
Read insightful books that will help you discover who you truly are. Know your values and priorities, and get in touch with your current goals and dreams. What are you heading towards? What are you excited to create? When we know what’s important to us, we can align our choices to achieve what we most desire.
It’s empowering to take steps, even small steps, in the direction of our dreams. Every time we get into action with our goals and stay true to our course, we feel more confident, encouraged and enlivened. ACT ON YOUR PRIORITIES & DESIRES.
Write down what you need to get done today. Put an estimated duration time next to each task. Open your exercise book or create a document. Open up a timer, set yourself a deadline and start working. If you need a break, do a plank for the length of a song for 3 minutes. Once that 3 minutes is up, get back to work.
Before you go to bed, make sure everything that’s due tomorrow is done. Learn to get shit done. There’s nothing more sexier than putting work on yourself to develop DISCIPLINE.
I’m not perfect and I don’t have to be. When I first realized this I felt an intense relief. This realization allowed me to actually become a better person. It gave me the strength to embrace my flaws and learn from my mistakes. The pressure melted away. I wouldn’t have been able to start examining my mistakes if I felt like I had to be perfect.
Once I found out it was okay to be imperfect, everything changed for the better. Don’t criticize yourself for making mistakes. Just be conscious not to make the same mistake twice.
That “PERFECT TIME” will never come. Because time will never be just right, bending to your ideals.
There will always be some form of adversity that you will be challenged with, and, while the obstacle may feel like a sign that you shouldn’t start, know this: adversity comes with adventure, and, learning to overcome adversity is what sharpens you and prepares you for SUCCESS.
So, take the challenge and face it head on knowing that it’s yours to conquer. You are capable of great things. THE TIME IS NOW.
Don’t let anyone invalidate or minimize how you feel. If you feel something, you feel it and it’s real to you. Nothing anyone says has the power to invalidate that, ever. No one else lives in your body. No one else sees life through your eyes. No one else has lived through your experiences.
And so, no one else has the right to dictate or judge how you feel. Your feelings are important and you deserve to be heard. They are inherently valid and they matter. Don’t let anyone make you believe otherwise.
1. The past can’t be changed. 2. Opinions don’t define your reality. 3. Everyone’s journey is different. 4. Judgements are not about you. 5. Overthinking will lead to sadness. 6. Happiness is found within. 7. Your thoughts affect your mood. 8. Smiles are contagious. 9. Kindness is free. 10. It’s okay to let go and move on. 11. What goes around, comes around. 12. Things always get better with time.
When you plant lettuce, if it does not grow well, you don’t blame the lettuce. You look for reasons it is not doing well. It may need fertilizer, or more water, or less sun. You never blame the lettuce.
Yet, if we have problems with our friends or family, we blame the other person. But if we know how to take care of them, they will grow well, like the lettuce. Blaming has no positive effect at all, nor does trying to persuade using reason and argument. That is my experience.
No blame, no reasoning, no argument, just understanding. If you understand, and you show that you understand, you can love, and the situation will change. (Not my words.)
Many of us have gotten so used to playing to the expectations of society, of our families, of our friends, and of our minds, that we don’t even allow ourselves to consider who we really are or what we really need. We ignore the calls of our hearts, giving our lives, instead, to the demands of an outside world built on fitting in. We can stop this, right now.
We can choose to listen to ourselves, to heed our deepest callings, whatever they are. We can give ourselves the freedom to be whoever the hell we want to be in this world. Right now, if we choose to. And why wouldn’t we?
CHOOSE TO BE YOU & CHOOSE YOURSELF EVERY POSSIBLE MOMENT.
It’s during the toughest times of your life that you’ll get to see the true colors of the people who say they care about you. Notice who sticks around and who doesn’t. And be grateful to those who leave you, because they have given you the room to grow in the space they abandoned. And appreciate the people who loved you when you didn’t feel lovable.
Bottom line is to be OK with giving the gift of your absence to those who do not appreciate and respect your presence. Meanwhile, never forget to love & behold those closer to your heart who showed up for you.
Instead of feeling like you’re behind, feel grateful for any setbacks you’ve had in your life and each lesson you have learned along the way. Be grateful for each relationship and what you were able to learn about yourself through falling in and out of love. Feel proud of how strong you have become from each time you were left to put the pieces of your broken heart back together. Be grateful that you learned that you will heal again no matter what you go through.
You should be proud that you learned how to recognize and move on from situations that are no longer good for you. You might feel like you are behind, but when you really think about it, everything you have been through has made you the person you are now. Your experience is your strength, and you shouldn’t wish to change that for anything.
In temple or church, it’s called donation. In school, it’s fee. In marriage, it’s called dowry. In divorce, alimony. In court, it’s fines. For kidnappers, it’s ransom.
When you owe someone MONEY, it’s debt. When you pay the government, it’s tax. When civil servant retirees, it’s pension. When employer pay to workers, it’s salary. When master pay to subordinates, it’s wages. When parents pay to children, it’s allowance. When you borrow from bank, it’s loan. When you offer after a good service, it’s tips. When illegally received in the name of service, it’s bribe. (Not my words.)
Focus on making progress, not perfection. Every good thing takes time. You can’t rush things. Growth is not linear, but a journey; one filled with challenges and opportunities to push to your destination. No one can do it for you, it’s your journey. And there will be days you’ll want to give up, but you can keep going. There are no shortcuts to get there, so you have to embrace the process.
Think progress, not perfection. Allow yourself to grow in the process. Make room for failure too. Just do your daily practice and cultivate a kind heart. Bet on hard work. Abandon impatience. The results will come down when they’re ready. Remember, consistent small steps are way better than just one big step with no further progress.
1. When you are alone, mind your thoughts. 2. When you are with friends, mind your tongue. 3. When you are angry, mind your temper. 4. When you are with a group, mind your behavior. 5. When you are in trouble, mind your emotions. 6. When God starts blessing you, mind your ego.
Forgive yourself for the bad decisions, for the times you lacked understanding, for the choices that hurt others and yourself. Forgive yourself for being young and reckless. These experiences are vital lessons. And what matters most right now is your willingness to grow from them.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
You have to be fearless about pursuing your dreams. You have to be willing to leave your comfort zone to grow not only as a human being but to push your own boundaries. I encourage anyone chasing dreams to be fearless; go into emotional areas that aren’t always comfortable or comprehensible.
Do something out of your comfort zone today. Sometimes the things that scare us help us grow.
Sometimes it’s better to just let things be. Let people go. Don’t fight for closure. Don’t ask for explanations. Don’t chase answers. Don’t expect people to understand where you’re coming from. You got to keep fighting for you because no one got you like you got yourself.
When you wake up each morning, take a moment to think about the kind of life you want to have. Consciously choose to have a happy life. A life that is filled with love, laughter, good health and success. Then begin your day focused on the things you can do to make this your reality.
Be silly. Be fun. Be different. Be crazy. Be you, because life is too short to be anything but happy. Choose a happy life.
