How is your self worth?

img_0525

I try to be the best I can, but it could be challenging when you can’t perfect your dreams. Giving up sometimes should not be the option. In the above photo, I tried doing what I’ve never done. Although, I’m not perfect in it, I still gave it a shot.

When your sense of pleasure and satisfaction are derived from comparing yourself to others, you are no longer the master of your own destiny. Although it’s impossible to turn off your reactions to what others think of you, you don’t have to hold up your accomplishments to anyone else’s, and you can always take people’s opinions with a grain of salt. That way, no matter what other people are thinking or doing, your self-worth comes from within.

Avoid them and set the limit

This photo was from one of my trips in California. We were on our way to Brentwood from San Francisco. The photo reminds me about what I would title, “avoid them and set the limit. ” According to an impressive article this week, the author use the word success and explained that life won’t always go the way we want it to, but when it comes down to it, we have the same 24 hours as everyone else.”

It reminds me of this truth that Successful people make their time count. Instead of complaining about how things could have been or should have been, they reflect on everything they have to be grateful for. Then they find the best solution available, tackle the problem and move on.
When the negativity comes from someone else, successful people avoid it by setting limits and distancing themselves from it. Think of it this way: If the complainer were smoking, would you sit there all afternoon inhaling the secondhand smoke? Of course not. You’d distance yourself, and you should do the same with all negative people.
A great way to stop complainers in their tracks is to ask them how they intend to fix the problem they’re complaining about. They will either quiet down or redirect the conversation in a productive direction.

Age: Why should it stop me?

I was the same age with one of my professors at Webster University. I felt life cheated me then. Then I read this article that clearly state what I’ve struggled with and it read “Age really is just a number. Successful people don’t let their age define who they are and what they are capable of. Just ask Betty White or any young, thriving entrepreneur.
I remember a professor in graduate school who told our class that we were all too young and inexperienced to do consulting work. He said we had to go work for another company for several years before we could hope to succeed as independent consultants. I was the youngest person in the class, and I sat there doing work for my consulting clients while he droned on.
Without fail, people feel compelled to tell you what you should and shouldn’t do because of your age. Don’t listen to them. Successful people certainly don’t. They follow their heart and allow their passion—not the body they’re living in—to be their guide.”

Open the door to successful people

While reading Success Magazine this afternoon, I decided to lift this from the page, below it read as follows:

“Successful people believe in a simple notion: You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.
Think about it: Some of the most successful companies in recent history were founded by brilliant pairs. Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak of Apple lived in the same neighborhood, Bill Gates and Paul Allen of Microsoft met in prep school, and Sergey Brin and Larry Page of Google met at Stanford.
Just as great people help you to reach your full potential, toxic people drag you down with them. Whether it’s negativity, cruelty, the victim syndrome or just plain craziness, toxic people create stress and strife that should be avoided at all costs.
If you’re unhappy with where you are in your life, take a look around. More often than not, the people you’ve surrounded yourself with are the root of your problems.
You’ll never reach your peak until you surround yourself with the right people.”

Positive change (vi)

When you romanticize about the past to escape the present. – Ask yourself why you’re afraid to look at the present, and take steps to create a more positive path for yourself. Create the positive change you need.

Positive Change (v)

the-forest-trees

When your current situation is not supporting your growth. – Be willing to let go of what no longer serves you. Some situations, places, hobbies and people have expiration dates. As you grow and change, so do your needs. Staying in situations that no longer serve you will only keep you trapped and running in place. Give yourself permission to break free of what’s holding you back. Create a positive change.

Positive Change (iv)

image

When you resist good opportunities out of fear of the unknown or what others may think. – First off, forget what others think. What do you think? Instead of holding onto what isn’t working, be open to exploring new ideas and making room for what will work

Positive Change (iii)

When you feel numb. – When we feel numb to life, it’s because we’ve lost passion and motivation. Ask yourself if you’re just going through the motions every day. Shake up your routine. Try doing more of what you love each day – make it a priority on your planner and watch your enthusiasm come back. Make the positive change.

Positive Change (ii)

image

When you start to lie to yourself and others to avoid the truth. – Lying creates inner turmoil, shame and guilt. Instead of letting these feelings fester, ask yourself what you’re running from that you’re are afraid to admit. If you aren’t doing what you say, ask yourself why you’re over-promising. When your actions no longer align with your words, it’s time to rethink things. Actions will always speak louder than words.
