The WORLD is increasingly designed to depress us. Happiness isn’t very good for the economy. If we were happy with what we had, why would we need more?
• How do you sell an anti-ageing moisturiser? You make someone worry about ageing. • How do you get people to vote for a political party? You make them worry about tax & immigration. • How do you get them to buy insurance? By making them worry about everything. • How do you get them to have plastic surgery? By highlighting their physical flaws. • How do you get them to watch a TV show? By making them worry about missing out. • How do you get them to buy a new smartphone? By making them feel like they are being left behind.
To be calm becomes a kind of revolutionary act. To be happy with your own non-upgraded existence. To be comfortable with our messy, human selves, would not be good for business.
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.
A shark in a fish tank will grow 8 inches, but in the ocean it will grow 8 ft or more. The shark will never out grow its environment, and the same is true about you. Many times we’re around small thinking people, so we don’t grow.
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.
You will never find your worth in another human being. You find it in yourself, and then you will attract those who are worthy of your energy. Realize this. Accept and acknowledge your own worth. Stop waiting for others to tell you how important you are. Tell yourself. And believe it.
12 key defining changes you can make to your life;
1. Protect your vibe. 2. Be an authentic version of yourself. 3. Avoid gossip and drama. 4. Let go of things you can’t control. 5. Avoid comparing yourself to others. 6. Keep your faith larger than your fears. 7. Don’t do anything that doesn’t feel right. 8. Don’t be afraid to spend some time alone. 9. Speak kindly to yourself and to other people. 10. Please yourself before trying to please others. 11. Stay away from people who drain your energy. 12. Ignore any opinions that don’t enhance your life.
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.
COMMUNICATION is vital to every relationship. There are people out there whose personalities just don’t mix with yours. Don’t waste your time trying to figure out why. Just go where you are wanted and understood, and everything else will fall into place.
If there’s someone in your life you are having trouble communicating with, try to work it out. Be sure the tone in your voice comes from a place of love and respect to connect with them.
Communicate, understand each other, fix issues, stay together & vibe. That’s MATURITY.
Only surround yourself with people who you can communicate with.
Do not chase another human being. Instead, chase your curiosity. Chase your development and your goals. Chase your passion. Strive to work for something bigger than yourself. And instead of trying to convince someone that you fit within their world, build your own world.
