We already know that no one is perfect. But knowing that doesn’t keep us from doing things we might feel badly about later. Your mistakes & understanding to own them makes you unique. But when the same mistake is repeated often; that’s a sign of inconsistency in your character, which can later birth numerous bad habits & a peculiar tendency to become a systematic liar. Start from owning your mistakes one by one. I’ve found in times like that it’s best to come clean and own your mistake. People will be so much more forgiving and sympathetic when you are honest about it because they can relate. Even better, you will inspire them to do the same thing by showing them how honest and beautiful you can be without being perfect.
Stay strong. Tell on yourself today about something you feel badly about having done or said in the past. We should regret our mistakes and learn from them, but never carry them forward into the future with us.
Despite what you may believe, you can disappoint people and still be good enough. You can make mistakes and still be capable and talented. You can let people down and still be worthwhile and deserving of love.
Everyone has disappointed someone they care about. Everyone messes up, lets people down, and makes mistakes.
Not because we’re inadequate or fundamentally inept, but because we’re imperfect and fundamentally HUMAN. Expecting anything different is setting yourself up for failure. Also remember; committing the same mistake twice is not the sign of a healthy mind. Keep that in mind & keep moving forward. (Not my words).
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. Stopping a mother from dropping her kid to school is the worst kinda crap you can slap on someone in the name of protecting environment. Sometimes people go bit too far with these environmental protection related protests. You aren’t allowed to deteriorate normal people’s life. Insulate Britain, protest in front of government officials or government offices where words can reach the right place.)
We assume success is about being famous, rich and owning expensive things. But if you’ve pulled yourself out of a dark place, that’s a great success in itself. Don’t forget that you’re winning each day you don’t give up and you make it through to the next.
Did you know that you’re achieving great things every day? It probably doesn’t seem like it if you’re always looking ahead to the next thing. Nevertheless, many of the things you’ve achieved today are things you dreamed about in the past. You just don’t notice them in the moment they happen. Or they pass you by too quickly.
Although we shouldn’t get so comfortable with our achievements that we become complacent and stop moving forwards, we should make time to celebrate them. Otherwise you’ll look back on your life and think you didn’t do anything significant. But if this were true, your life would always have remained the same. Celebrate your achievements, even though they are little.
This is your life. You’re allowed to change your mind. To change your heart. You’re allowed to be a different person. To wake up one day and not want to do the things you’ve been doing all your life. You’re allowed to love who you want. To move on from the people who are not good to you. To let go of anyone without any kind of explanation & without any kind of regret. You’re allowed to make mistakes. To learn from them or not to learn from them and experience everything all over again. You’re allowed to forget your past if you want to or to stay in it, but you must also understand that this is not how you will grow. You’re allowed to change careers. To dress differently. To chase different dreams. To change locations, even if, at first, you’re terrified to do so. You’re allowed to dislike yourself but also allowed to change those same parts you don’t see eye to eye with. To work on them until you’re completely comfortable with who you are.
This is your life. Make it count. Make your own validation. Your own path. Your own way of life. You are enough. And you are not broken. You’re a lot stronger than you want to believe. Now breathe. Be you. (Not my words)
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. Watch it for some lighthearted fun. I am a big fan of Key & Peele, said it before too i guess.)
When you don’t know what to do, when you don’t know what to say, when you don’t know which direction you’re supposed to go, form your purpose by asking your true self. Then, carry yourself forward using all the help you can get from yourself. This journey will be messy and there is no rule book to create change and achieving greatness.
So give yourself permission to make mistakes, and to learn along the way. What matters is your presence, not your perfection. Face yourself. PRESENCE is always greater compared to PERFECTION.
1- Do something you’ve been procrastinating on. What’s on your to-do list that’s been sitting there? Do it first thing in the morning, and get it out of the way. You’ll feel great about yourself.
2- Get active. Doing something is almost always better than not doing anything. Of course, doing something could lead to mistakes, but mistakes are a part of life. That’s how we learn. Without mistakes, we’d never get better. So don’t worry about those. Just do something. Get off your butt and get active physically, or active by taking steps to accomplish something.
3- Act positive. More than just thinking positive, you have to put it into action at right time. Action, actually is the key to developing self-confidence. It’s one thing to learn to think positive, but when you start acting on it, you change yourself, one action at a time. (Not my words)
