Be strong, be kind, be free. Do things that make you proud of yourself. Surround yourself with people who bring out your best qualities. And distance yourself from the people who do the opposite. Hangout with people who are ready to exchange knowledge with enough understanding about what they are saying & why. For example; Don’t just follow someone’s words because they said “Investing in stock market/real estate/crypto will make you money/rich”. 95% of these people don’t even know how to multiply 12*13 without a calculator. Do you really think such dumbfucks can advice anyone on finance? Forget finance, if someone is saying something without knowing enough about it, that person is a complete fake nut. Stay away from such morons. Fun story: Most people who invest in bitcoin think it’s more like a virtual currency, but hardly few know it was designed as a medium of transaction. It’s more like Western Union Money Transfer.
Be true, true to yourself and true to your morals. Stand up for yourself. Don’t let people take advantage of your kindness and soft heart. Don’t take shit from anyone, and don’t put yourself down. Believe in yourself and believe in your journey. Be good to yourself. Be unapologetically you. Embrace your imperfections. Accept the fact that when you grow, sometimes you lose people and that’s okay. Celebrate your every success and learn from failure. Learn to accept that, first you have to learn a lot about anything & everything before jumping in. And most importantly, never ever let anything stand in the way of the person you are becoming. BE A TRUE YOU. (Not my words).
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 it that 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. It was always about embracing the person you were becoming while being consistent about your approach towards yourself & others. One day, you will understand that happiness was always about learning how to live with yourself, that happiness was never in the hands of other people. It was always about you. It was always inside you.
Inner peace is the new success. Health is the new wealth. Kindness is the new cool. Happiness is the new rich. (Not my words).
A sense of humour. A taste for adventure. A healthy glow. Openness. Kindness. Confidence. Humility. Humble behaviour. Truthful communication. Appetite for success. Hunger to learn. Intuition. Smartass comebacks. Presence. And a consistent approach with every word you just read.
Because you can fake something only for a timeframe. If it’s true, it’s consistent. And consistent has no time limit.
Date her who walks you till your car. Date her who dares to steal your hoodie in front of your face. Date her who wants to meet your parents, and is respectful towards them. Date her who respects your siblings and family members. Date her who’s kind to animals, its a reflection of how she’ll treat usual people. Date her who makes you smile. Date her who looks confident with or without makeup. Date her who will listen to your complain or accomplishments. Date her who doesn’t force you to do things you don’t want to. Date her who will come hang out and cuddle just cause she can. Date her who loves you through the good and the bad. Date her who has seen you angry, happy, sad, and still feels for you. Date her who has a hunger for SUCCESS & hunger for more beyond that. Date her who actually utilises her time to the fullest, so that she can value your TIME. Now you know you aren’t entertaining someone boring/sluggish.
Life can easily remain exciting happy happening even in a relationship if you are dealing with a stronger individual, stronger in finance & faith.
Suddenly social media has created so many experts who brag about their success stories. Most of these only talk about their success. Half of these dumbfucks have little to nothing success in their field, rest half are just scammers.
Genuine people who made it big will never sell their recipe to success. Because it’s personal. My journey with my relationships, friendships, religion, finance & career, all are personal to me. I may give tips to my son one day, but why will i tell some random person to follow my steps & make it happen, if i already made it so far walking on my own!!? Nobody helped me become what i wanted to be. The journey wasn’t smooth sailing. And i also know nobody will put similar effort to be where i am.
Ask Elon Musk how he got into Tesla without founding it & how it’s the world’s highest valued automobile manufacturing company in stock market while making only 0.13% of cars in this world!!? Will he ever tell you in a while how that happened? It’s consistent rigorous efforts of time & discipline, that’s paying off right now.
Stop selling success stories. Now we live in a world where people first need to know what they shouldn’t do. I want more people to talk about setbacks. Failures & struggles are fun too. I don’t know why people avoid that part! If you can’t enjoy the struggle, you don’t deserve the SUCCESS.
Stop discounting your successes. Start affirming them instead. Don’t say “Oh, it’s nothing” or “Everyone could do that”. Treat and talk to yourself as you would to a good friend.
Develop a positive attitude and choose to get your mind off the negatives. For example, write down three things that went well each day, and three separate things that you are thankful for.
Work on your appearance. Make an effort to look good, that doesn’t always have to cost the earth. Wear bold colour bottom & light colour t-shirt/shirt/top. Invest your little time in personal hygiene & skincare. Understand the importance of a nice perfume. Eat clean & workout frequently. You know the drill. That’s gonna make you feel much more happier and confident.
Don’t be a doormat or just follow the crowd. Think about your needs and what you want from life.
Be willing to take risks or calculated risks for god’s sake. If you don’t take a risk, then nothing’s going to change. And you’ll be stuck in a rut going nowhere in life.
The secret to self-confidence isn’t to stop caring what people think, it’s to start caring about what you think. It’s to make your opinion of you more important than anyone else’s. Confidence makes us beautiful and it comes from accepting yourself. The moment you accept yourself, it makes everything better.
That “perfect time” will never come, because time will never be just right bending to your ideals. There will always be some form of adversity that you will be challenged with. And while the obstacle may feel like a sign that you shouldn’t start, know this: adversity comes with adventure and learning to overcome adversity is what sharpens you and prepares you for SUCCESS.
So take the challenge and face it head-on knowing that it’s yours to conquer. You are capable of great things. YOU CAN’T ALWAYS WAIT FOR THE PERFECT TIME. SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO DARE TO DO IT, BECAUSE LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO WONDER WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN.
