If tou truly want something you will make it happen, do not blame the conditions. We create our own destiny. It is we who decided what we can and can not do. Work hard and put your heart and soul into your work. Use every second to think about how you can achieve your goal. Focus on your own stuff. Everybody walks a diffrent path. Do not try to walk someone else’s path because that is not going to work. And most important, DO WHAT YOU LOVE.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. Sharing it because it’s buzzing in my head since past two days. Of course it’s an awesome track.)
You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That’s the only thing you should be trying to control.
It’s not enough to just love doing something if you want to be good at it. You have to practice every day. If you just show up on the day unprepared, you won’t fulfill the high expectations that you have for yourself.
Take time out of your life to practice your passion. Do whatever you need to do that will propel you toward your goals. Whatever your practice or passion is, you must exercise DISCIPLINE.
If you go to the gym and you work out, come back and you look in the mirror; you will see nothing. If you go to the gym the next day and you come back and look at the mirror; you will see nothing. You think, so clearly there’s no results. It can’t be measured. It must not be effective, so we quit.
Or if you fundamentally believe, this is the right course of action to stick, to make yourself to that act of service. You can make yourself to the regime of exercise. You can’t screw it up if you eat chocolate cake one day. You can skip a day or two. But if you stick with it consistently, not exactly sure what day, but I know you’ll start getting into shape. Going to the gym for nine hours a day doesn’t get you into shape. Working out every day for 30 minutes gets you into shape. It’s not about the events. It’s not about intensity. It’s about CONSISTENCY.
The quality of a friendship should be measured on the strength of your bond and the abundance of love between you, not the number of times you catch up over coffee or go out drinking. We all have different needs, schedules and responsibilities. What’s important is you are there when it matters.
When someone treats you like you’re just one of many options, help them narrow their choice by removing yourself from the equation. Sometimes you have to try not to care, no matter how much you do. Because sometimes you can mean almost nothing to someone who means so much to you. It’s not pride, it’s self-respect.
Don’t expect to see positive changes in your life if you surround yourself with negative people. Don’t give part-time people a full-time position in your life. Know your value and what you have to offer and never settle for anything less than what you deserve.
