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.
You’re not ugly. Your habits are just shit. Let me Explain.
– Let’s say you’re a 3/10. – Start working out & build a better body. Now you’re a 5/10. – Start a skincare routine & drink more water everyday.

No one else can possibly know what kinda power you’ve got going on inside you. What kinda potential, life-force, and creative ability you contain. Only you know the beginning and end of that. And even if you tell anyone about your dreams, and they nod their head, like, “Yes, yes, maybe that’s meant to be”, they should never need to be convinced that you will reach those dreams. Because your dreams are not theirs. Let go of their opinion. Let go of their judgement. Let go of their support, even if it is coming from the most loving place. Let it go. Because it’s not for them to know, this thing that you are dreaming.
You know where you’re going. You know what you are capable of. There is no need to prove this or explain this or articulate this to anyone else. It is entirely up to you. And you need all the space within you to be free for new realities. Make sure you’ve cleared that space. Make sure nothing else is influencing that space. Make sure that this dream is all and only you. BUILD YOURSELF LIKE YOU DREAM.
Toxic people are not new to life. World is filled with narcissists & liars that we can’t sideline. But that situation becomes often if you don’t set limits & establish boundaries. I would rather say, you must do both for every equation in your life. Let me explain why/how;
Set limits: Complainers and negative people are bad news. They wallow in their problems and they want others to join in so that they can feel better about themselves. People often feel pressure to listen to complainers because they don’t want to be seen as insensitive or rude, but there’s a fine line between lending a sympathetic ear and getting sucked into their negative emotional spiral. You can avoid this by setting limits and distancing yourself when necessary. Just think of it this way; if the complainer were smoking, would you sit there all day inhaling the second-hand smoke? Probably not, you will distance yourself and you should do the same with every person who’s toxic.
Establish boundaries: This is the area where most people tend to sell themselves short, they feel that because they work or live with someone they have no way to control the chaos. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Once you’ve found your way to rise above a person, you’ll begin to find their behavior more predictable and easier to understand. This will equip you to think rationally about when and where you have to put up with them and when you don’t. If you let things happen naturally, you are bound to find yourself constantly broiled in difficult conversations. But if you set boundaries and decide when and where you’ll engage a person, you can control much of the chaos.
