Be Proud of Your personality

Be proud of who you are

Most of us spend a lot of time thinking about the things we have done wrong.  We keep remembering the mistakes we have made in life and how we have not achieved all the things that we want to achieve in life. We all have decisions we wish we could take back.

 Stop blaming yourself all the time for things you had no control over. It is human to make mistakes.  You don’t have to wait for someone else to pat you on the back for what you have done in your life. Always remind yourself of how incredible you are; be proud of being you!

One of the things which we don’t have control over is what others think about us. We live in a society that wants to tear everybody down often but none of us are perfect. Some people always want you to behave in a certain way or act a certain way. If you spend your time worrying about what others think about you, you will never be happy in life.

Never allow the opinion of others to destroy your self-confidence. Your dreams shouldn’t be based on the opinion of others. The opinion of others shouldn’t define your identity. What people think about you shouldn’t  cause any form of instability in your health, marriage, career, academics, relationship, business, etc.

Whatever they say about you is an opinion and nothing else. No one knows you better than you know yourself. No matter how hard you try, you are never going to be someone else so be proud of who you are and live your life.

The number of likes and comments you get on social media: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, WhatsApp, etc does not define who you are and how unique you are. Also, the number of followers or Facebook friends that you have will never define your value in life. Rather, you should be proud of what you’ve been able to accomplish so far. Be proud of the many more amazing things you are going to achieve.

Believe it or not, people will always judge and criticize you no matter what. So be criticized for being the person that you want to be in life, not the person that others want you to be. Be proud of who you are as a person by loving yourself and accepting your imperfection. Be excited about your past; not necessarily of everything you have done( we all have regrets), but of how you have kept going and working hard.

Be proud of every time you have failed. The fact that you have failed means one thing is certain: you have tried! Be happy that you had the guts to try in the first place. Be proud of all those times when you faced difficulties. Trust yourself with the decisions you take in life, focus on the positives, remove any form of negativity from your mind, and just be the person that you want to be.

No amount of approval from somebody else is worth dictating how you should live your life. You are worthy of living the best possible life. It is only one life that you will ever get. I love what Phil Mc Graw said:  “Instead of being ashamed of what you have been through, be proud of what you have overcome!”

Seven Amazing Secrets Life Has Taught Me

Seven Amazing Secrets Life Has Taught Me

Life secrets are seen in the simple things of life. As I walked through the windy pathway of life, there are some hard lessons I have been forced to encounter directly or indirectly. These lessons have made me more mature, stronger, and better equipped to face the challenges of life. I am delighted to share them with readers, with the hope that it would be a source of encouragement and inspiration to those who are down.

Happiness is a decision

No matter what one goes through in life, always make up your mind to be happy. Happiness is a decision that starts from the inside and radiates outside. Never you give room for sorrow or sadness because life is too precious to be wasted. Life comes with sunshine and roses. It also comes with floods and pains. The most beautiful thing about life itself is the gift of life. Make a choice today to live a happy life and see how beautiful you’ll become.

There is no permanent friend

I have had the unique opportunity of meeting people I mistook to be friends. Shared all I had with them and in the end, all I got was betrayal and heartbreak. I have been made to learn this lesson the hard way because I took so many things for granted. Some individuals are friends who become friends based on interest. When things are rosy, they become so close. When things become rough, they enter into ghost mode and vanish into thin air.

Live each day at a time

One of the reasons why some individuals suffer from anxiety is the burden they carry on their lean shoulders. They keep thinking of what the future holds for them and add it to the problem of yesterday even when they are still struggling to make ends meet.

Life has taught me to live each day at a time, without worrying about what to eat, drink, or put on. Anxiety has not been known to have solved any problem. Live each day to the fullest and stop killing yourself with worry and anxiety.

Quality over quantity

When I got a hold of this wonderful secret earlier this year, the first thing I did was to cut off some unproductive friendship. These friends were not motivating me towards my goal in life, and I discovered that the more friends I had, the more complicated it was for me to achieve success in life.

The secret is in the quality of people you associate with, not the quantity. Two quality friends can help transform you from your present level into your dream life. Avoid mixing up with the crowd and identify quality friends who have similar goals and aspirations. This is the most precious secret I uncovered this year.

I can be anything that I set my mind to be

I have always loved writing and helping people achieve their dreams and aspiration. When I discovered these gifts were inside of me, the urge to work towards utilizing my full potential became apparent. Today, I am glad to announce that I have started seeing some of the fruits of my labor. I get emails and remarks about how positive my articles have blessed lives.  I’ve received messages that have left me in tears. It is like a dream come true.

I am exactly what I think I am

Whenever I am down, I daily confess positive affirmation to myself. Keep telling myself that I am a success not a failure. If I confess positive, my mindset will be programmed to accept positive thoughts and ideas. This will ultimately have a wonderful effect on my life. This is an ancient secret that can be positively or negatively activated. Your thoughts must be tuned to the right channel to receive positive ideas.

Don’t allow others to devalue you

You are too valuable and precious to be brushed aside. I cannot be intimidated by circumstances or individuals. The value I place on myself is what the world will appreciate and nobody can devalue or look down on me without my permission.

There is always a price tag attached to everything under the face of the earth. The price tag is determined by the owner of the product or goods. We must not allow anyone to take us for granted. You are priceless, inestimable in value, and beautiful!

How to make a Fresh start in Life

Life can be sweet and enjoyable especially when everything is going according to plans. It can however turn sour with time when goals cannot be accomplished and family pressure keeps pushing us on all fronts. To some individuals, such unfavorable situations evoke a certain level of anger, anguish and eventually defeat.

When faced with apparent failure, defeat and mounting pressure, there are certain steps one can take to ensure a fresh start in the journey of life. These steps may not be easy to implement, but they are solid platform upon which we can build back our broken foundations.

Forget about the past 
When you have tried all the best to ensure you succeed in a given venture, and yet failure shows up unannounced, it can be so frustrating. To some, it is better they forget about trying and give up on that precious dream. The truth however, is that you cannot recover from your past failure when you keep looking back at the mistakes of yesterday. Yesterday has gone, and there are thousands of opportunities ahead of you waiting to be exploited. The sooner we realize the futility of looking behind and the need to look ahead, the better we become.

Failure is not final 
One of the best way to ensure we get a fresh start to life after a major failure, is to realize that failure is not final. The fact that you have previously failed does not imply that you are a total failure. There are numerous examples of brilliant individuals who had false starts in life, but they picked up the pieces of their life and transformed their bitter experience into a success story. If you failed in achieving your set goals this year, there is always an opportunity to make an amend next year.

Make changes where to ensure a fresh start 
Life is dynamic, and so we must be dynamic if we must succeed in whatever we do. After a major setback in life, it may be expedient that we analyze the cause of such failure and make necessary changes where applicable. It may be necessary for you to change environment or job to gain a better perspective of life.

When a football club with so much potential keeps performing poorly against the expectation of both management and fans, it sometimes results to drastic changes in the coaching crew. Underperforming players are sacked and better ones are recruited to give the club a fresh start.

Likewise, we must look inward and start making proactive changes in our life if ever we desire success. It may not be easy to implement, but its worth the pains. The road to success is after all not smooth, but bumpy and filled with lots of obstacles, which can be frustrating.
