I was raised to show respect. I was taught to knock before i open a door. Say hello when I enter a room. Say please and thank you, and to have respect for my elders. I do let another person have my seat if they need it. Say ‘yes sir’ and ‘no sir’, and help others when they need me to, not stand on the sidelines and watch. Hold the door for the elderly person behind me. Say ‘excuse me’ when it’s needed. To love people for who they are and not for what i can get from them.
And most importantly, i was also raised to treat people exactly how i would like to be treated by others. It’s called respect.
Your health. Your mental health. Your well-being. Your boundaries. Your bliss. Your happiness. Your self love. Your self worth. Your self respect. Your purpose. Your goals. Your much needed rest. Your piece of peace.
Sometimes you just outgrow people. You don’t need to hate them. You don’t need to cut them off. But you do need to distance yourself from them, if you want to live your best life. Maybe, that is what is best for them too.
You just need peace over pandering. Be who you need. & Vibe with those who vibe with you.
Sooner or later, you have to start. Stop saying you’ll do it ‘one day’ and just do it. At some point you have to make the first move. You have to make all the things you plan inside your head happen. You need to start taking steps to get what you want even if they are baby steps.
It’s time to start working on that life you have always dreamed of. Put the fear of failure aside and just do it. The one thing more scary than starting is regret.
Life is too short. Grudges are a waste of perfect happiness. Laugh when you can. Apologize when you should and let go of what you can. Stay consistent with the way you are. Take chances. Give everything and have no regrets. Life is too short to be unhappy.
You have to take the good with the bad. Smile when you’re sad. Love what you got and always remember what you had. Always forgive but never forget. Learn from your mistakes but never regret. People change and things go wrong. But always remember, life goes on.
Oversharing is how you leak the energy. Privacy is protection. Stop telling people more than what they need to know. The less you reveal, the more people can wonder. Forget attention. Move in silence. Live peacefully. Vibrate higher. Only speak when it’s time to say checkmate.
My biggest flex is that nobody ever knows what’s really going on in my life. Where I am, who I’m with, or my next move, unless I make it known! Therefore anything anyone says is just an assumption. Privacy is the only luxury. Privacy is peace.
The longer I live the more I realize the impact of attitude to life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts.
It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstanstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do.
It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company, a church, a home.
The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for the day. We cannot change our past. We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to us is 90% how I react to it. (Not my words.)
1. Know that your only competition is who you were yesterday. 2. Earn, save and invest before you spend. 3. Avoid negative people, life is too short. 4. If you don’t go after what you want, you will never get it. 5. See failure as a beginning, not an end. 6. Our habits decide our future.
Your real competition looks like this: • Your ego. • Your procrastination. • Your lack of discipline. • Your distractions. • Your bad habits. • Your self-doubt. • Instant gratification. • The knowledge you neglect to learn. • The unhealthy food you consume.
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.
Success starts with consistency. Health starts with consistency. Fitness starts with consistency. Wealth starts with consistency. Friendships starts with consistency. Relationships starts with consistency. All aspirations are all about consistency.
If only people understood how important it is to be consistent. Everything that has value in life is a product of consistency.
Self-care isn’t just holidays and massages. It’s working on your habits. It’s working on your mindset. It’s working on healing your past. It’s removing toxic thoughts. It’s removing toxic people. It’s removing places which didn’t serve best interest of your life.
It’s living intentionally. It’s living purposefully. It’s living consciously.
Don’t spend it scrolling through everyone else’s. Don’t spend it wishing you had someone else’s. Don’t spend it comparing it to someone else’s. Don’t spend it competing with someone else’s. Don’t spend it talking about someone else’s. Don’t spend it recounting your mistakes. Don’t spend it rehearsing your failures. Don’t spend it focusing on your limitations. Don’t spend it living in regret. Don’t spend it paralyzed by fear. Don’t spend it listening to the naysayers. Don’t spend it living purposelessly.
Take chances. Take a lot of chances. 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.
• How you treat yourself & your body. • How you react to situations. • How you respond to people. • Where you give your time, energy, and attention. • How you speak to and treat others. • The people you choose to surround yourself with. • The content you consume. • What you do with your spare time. • How you express your thoughts.
Don’t speak negatively about yourself, even as a joke. Your body doesn’t know the difference. Words are energy and cast spells, that’s why it’s called spelling. Change the way you speak about yourself and you can change your life. What you’re not changing, you’re also choosing.
Anything that annoys you is teaching you patience. Anyone who abandons you is teaching you how to stand up on your own two feet. Anything that angers you is teaching you forgiveness and compassion. Anything that has power over you is teaching you how to take your power back. Anything you hate is teaching you unconditional love. Anything you fear is teaching you courage to overcome your fear. Anything you can can’t control is teaching you how to let go.
If you want to become significantly better at anything, you have to fall in love with the process of doing it. You have to fall in love with building the identity of someone who does the work, rather than merely dreaming about the results that you want. You have to remain consistent with what you want to achieve.
In other words; Fall in love with boredom. Fall in love with repetition and practice. Fall in love with the process of what you and let the results take care of themselves.
You don’t need to be perfect. You don’t need to be the best. You don’t need to be awesome.
The only thing you need is just to be yourself. Perfect, best, awesome aren’t a purpose in your life. Those things just such a reward from ‘who you are’ and what would you become for.
So, if someday, you’re being forced by society to be someone who is not you till you recognize yourself, just ignore them. If you want to know one thing about a thousand fucked up thing in this world, the society is one of them. Be an authentic version of yourself shamelessly.
• Trusting yourself. • Choosing inner peace over impulsive reaction. • Walking away from drama. • Being your own validation. • Honouring your needs. • Working on your goals. • Recognising unhealthy patterns. • Falling back in love with your life. • Last & important- Choosing consistency over instant gratification.
Just remember, we are all toxic. 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. Pay attention.
Your life is about breaking your own limits. Your life is about outgrowing yourself. Your life is about living your best life. You are not in competition with anyone else. Plan to outdo your past, not other people.
You need to ignore what everyone else is doing and achieving for yourself. Stop Comparing. Start living your unique journey.
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.
You can always start again. Clean out your social media. Create a new account. Create your new taste in music. Study or work in a new city. Start socialising with new people. Choose a new signature scent and style and purge the outdated parts of yourself.
If you don’t like where you’re at, but you don’t know what to do about it; TRY STARTING AGAIN.
Eat better. Run more. Squat more. Sleep earlier. Wake up earlier. Make a good breakfast. Drink water. Eat fruits. Read books. Explore & adventure. Talk precisely. Listen more. Feel deeper. Love better. Open your eyes. Experience life. Be you. Be happy.
1. Less fear. 2. Less internal conflict. 3. Longer moments of peace. 4. More doing. 5. Less worrying. 6. Deeper understanding of one’s intentions. 7. Understanding the difference between attention & affection. 8. Increased sense of control. 9. Increase in self-confidence. 10. Delayed gratification.
I stopped running away from my negative emotions. I stopped running away from my feelings. I stopped pretending like I had it all together. I started accepting that I felt messed up. I let myself 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 my words.)
Replace Netflix marathons with sleep. Replace influencers with creators. Replace toxic quaintances with real friends. Replace complaining with gratitude. Replace blame with responsibility. Replace alcohol with a black coffee. Replace overthinking with action.
We are the books we read. We are the films we watch. We are the music we listen to. We are the people we meet. We are the dreams we have. We are the conversations we engage in. We are what we take from these. We are the sound of the ocean. We are the breath of fresh air. We are the brightest light and the darkest corner. We are a collective of our experiences.
Some humans would do anything to see if it was possible to do it. If you put a large switch in some cave somewhere, with a sign on it saying ‘END OF THE WORLD SWITCH – PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH’, the paint wouldn’t even have time to dry before someone touches it.
You’re going to realize it one day that happiness was never about your job or your degree or being in a relationship. Happiness was never about following in the footsteps of all of those who came before you. It was never about being like the others.
One day, you’re going to see happiness was always about the discovery, the hope, the listening to your heart and following it wherever it chose to go.
Happiness was always about being kinder to yourself. Happiness was always about embracing the person you were becoming.
One day, you will understand that happiness was always about learning how to live with yourself. Happiness was never in the hands of others. Happiness was always about you, it will always be about you.
