By now, you must have read the first part of Daily Keypoints. If you missed it, CLICK HERE. Below is the second and final part of the article. Read, digest, and share.
10. You don’t need to get everyone’s approval first.
Stop listening to what the world says you should want. Start listening
to who you are. Truth be told, there are only a few people in this
world who will stay 100% true to you, and YOU should be one of them.
11. What you’re capable of achieving is greatly based on how much you want it.
When it means enough to you, then you can do it. When you are willing
and committed and persistent, you will get yourself there, every time.
Success is neither magical nor mysterious. Success is the natural
outcome of consistently applying your focused effort to what you want.
The fatigue might be there sometimes, but you must understand that
putting it aside is the single most important factor in succeeding.
12. Your best bet is to give yourself no other choice.
It’s amazing what you can do when you have no other choice. In fact,
achievement consists mostly of giving yourself no other choice. You
are more than good enough; you just have to own it – you have to own
everything you are and everything you’re up against. If you believe
your troubles are too powerful, then you’ll never allow yourself to
rise above them. Stop fretting. Quit worrying. Don’t complain. You
know what you must do. So do it.
13. Earn the respect of others by having the audacity to respect yourself.
Self-respect, self-love, self-worth… there’s a reason they all start
with “self.” You can’t receive them from anyone else. Earn the respect
of others by having the audacity to respect yourself. Dare to love
yourself as if you were a rainbow with pots of gold at both ends. It’s
your responsibility, above all, to see your own value. And this
responsibility to yourself means refusing to let others do your
thinking, talking, and deciding for you; it means learning to use your
own brains and intuition to make things happen.
14. You are stronger than whatever is troubling you.
Use each setback, each disappointment as a cue to push on ahead with
more determination than ever before. When something bad happens, you
can either let it define you, let it destroy you or let it strengthen
you. The choice is yours. So pump yourself up! You are a lot stronger
than you think you are. You may not be where you want to be yet, but
look how far you’ve come. Celebrate the fact that you’re not where you
used to be.
15. For everything you’ve lost, you’ve gained something else.
Appreciate what you have today. Life does not have to be perfect to be
wonderful. No regrets, just lessons. No worries, just acceptance. No
expectations, just gratitude. Life is too short. The story of your
life has many chapters. One bad chapter doesn’t mean it’s the end. So
stop re-reading the bad one already, and turn the page.
16. Your scars are symbols of your strength.
Don’t ever be ashamed of the scars life has left you with. A scar
means the hurt is over and the wound is closed. It means you conquered
the pain, learned a lesson, grew stronger, and moved forward. A scar
is the tattoo of a triumph. So don’t allow your scars to hold you
hostage. Don’t allow them to make you live your life in fear. You
can’t make the scars in your life disappear, but you can change the
way you see them. You can start seeing your scars as a sign of
strength and not pain.
17. You are still here trying.
If you have no other testimony right now, you have this one: “I’m
still here trying.” Be positive, patient and persistent. The more you
feel like quitting, the more there is to be gained by continuing to do
all three. Because the strongest people aren’t the people who always
win, but the people who don’t give up when they lose.
….And you’re getting there.
