It’s so easy to get caught up in wanting success, wealth, and fame. If that’s the kind of recognition you seek in life, it won’t last because it’s not authentic. We are here to be of service, to be of value, and to help others in our own unique ways. Success doesn’t define who we are. But it’s a reminder of what we can achieve.
Think about what matters to you and make sure you are doing things for the right reasons and not to please your ego. Make sure your intentions are healthy for you.
Strive not to be a SUCCESS, but rather to be of VALUE. (Not my words).
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. Do i believe 80% crash coming? Answer is: NO. Not for me. But the markets which are gonna crash soon or sooner are commodities, real estate & mortgage/banking. If your investments are in Automobile, pharma & retail sector, you can just chill because these industries have already seen enough downfall recently, now the only way is up.)
It’s the little things in life. It’s the people who don’t just text you, but take the time out of their day to put you in their schedule; no matter how busy they are. It’s the friends that are authentic and don’t fake what they feel. The people who are straight with you and accept you for who you are; down to the raw scars and burns. It’s the pure feeling of happiness while driving your AMG when you’re listening to music with people you love and there is absolutely no where else in the entire world you would rather be. It’s the feeling like we’ll live forever, like we’re young forever. It’s the love that soothes our heart which makes life feel happy to die for. It’s the love that breaks our hearts but knowing the feeling of pain and feeling the pain, but getting through the pain; only to be grateful for the feel of life, the feel of living.
Moments and little things, acts that make every breathe so incredibly amazing. That’s what I live for; these moments that make us feel infinite. Life is fun. Let it be.
I may regret many things: Decisions I made. Decisions I didn’t make. Feelings I expressed. Feelings I suppressed. People I loved. People I rejected. People I respected. People I neglected. People I listened to. People I confided in. Promises I made. Promises I believed. Questions I asked. Answers I gave. Words I said. Words I didn’t say.
At the end reflecting is essential, but regret should not ground you in the past. It should make you grateful that you have a conscious mind that realizes what is right and wrong. It should give you strength to wisely use your present to make your future better. It should free you. If you don’t stop judging yourself, putting yourself down, believing that this is as good as you can be, then you’ve closed doors for yourself before they even appear in front of you. You’ve become a slave of your past & you aren’t allowed to. Don’t expect to be who you want to be without being true to yourself and believing in yourself. If you don’t believe in yourself, don’t expect anyone to believe in you. If you don’t see the best in yourself, don’t expect anyone to see the best in you. When you close a door; do you expect back and stare at it and say, “I can’t leave because this door is still closed in front of me”? Think about it. Take small steps consistently, but with good vibe & high energy. Be True to Yourself.
Our power lies not in becoming someone else, but in unfolding – revealing to the world who we have been created to be.
You don’t need to be something else or something different, who you are is perfect. So, give yourself permission to unfold stripping down to the rawest and most authentic version of yourself, and seeing it as brilliant and valuable. As you do, you’ll begin to see yourself living freely and glowing with light allowing you to experience the greatness you were destined for.
True confidence is very different from egotistical swagger. When people believe in themselves and their abilities, there are things they simply don’t do. Don’t get me wrong, learning to be confident is important but there are certain behaviors that sets highly confident people apart from everyone else. Two major things confident people never do:
1: They don’t over focus on appearance. When someone is self-confident, they have a healthy relationship with their appearance. They stay Fit and well groomed, and they eat healthy food because they know their bodies deserve to be taken care properly. Confident people strive to put their best foot forward and then accept themselves as they are.
2. They don’t try to change their personality. Whether someone is an introvert or an extrovert, they can still be confident. Confident people understand that self-assurance comes from feeling good about who they are and what they can achieve by being completely authentic. They don’t try to be someone they’re not, because they understand that self-acceptance is a vital element of self-confidence.
