• These hard times, this pain, these lessons – one day they’ll be your strength, your awareness, your blessings. • Stop expecting honesty from people who lie to themselves. • You’ll never look good trying to make someone look bad. • Save your explanations for those that are determined to understand you. • Give your silence to those that are determined to misunderstand you. • Your life is too short to be unhappy 5 days a week in exchange for 2 days of freedom. • Don’t be upset from people you don’t respect. • Life is not tiring. Wanting life to be a certain way but not having the confidence to make it that way, is tiring. • Your consistent approach to anything you desire dictates your success in career, business & relationships.
Every good thing takes time. You can’t rush things. Growth is not linear, but a journey 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.
Eat better. Run more. Squat more. Sleep earlier. Wake up earlier. Make a good breakfast. Drink water. Eat healthy. Read books. Adventure. Talk sense. Listen more. Feel deeper. Love better. Open your eyes. Experience life. Remain consistent. Be happy. BE YOU.
If only people understood 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.
Throughout the years I have learned three major things.
1. Sometimes bad things happen to good people. Sometimes you might think you know someone, you might think they’re on your side but deep down inside they’re not. Truthful & consistent stay, rest doesn’t. Pay attention. Actions without intention means nothing. And words are just another way to cover up the truth with lies.
2. Almost everything we go through we can’t control. That means, if it’s yours, then somewhere down the line it’ll return to you. And if it’s not, then you have to make peace with it and move on. It’s as simple as that.
3. Letting go is never an easy thing to do. No matter how many times you’ve rehearsed it, no matter how many times you’ve played it in your head, it never goes as planned and almost always does it sting a little harder than you thought. (Not my words.)
