“Be strong, energetic, steadfast.”- James Allen
It feels really good to be able to live your life in your own way! Too many people spend their precious time living other people’s lives. Why would they do that to themselves? Why?
No matter what, just make the decision to be you, the real you. Do not worry about what others are saying, thinking about you. That is not your problem, and it shouldn’t be your problem. Look, life is too short to start fooling around doing nothing, living nothing. Your life is your life. Why not live to the fullest?
Feel good about yourself! Whether people like it or not, do not let their opinions control your life. If you do, you are living their lives, not yours.
To live well, to live your life in your own way, you MUST feel good about yourself. You must live intentionally. You must wake up everyday feeling great about yourself, about your life, about your job, about your environment. You must know who you are. You must know who you are not. You must know where you are going in your life. You must know why you are going there. You must know what your values are. To put it in another way, you must have a purpose.
Be the boss of yourself. Be in charge of your life. Do not live people’s lives. Live yours. I know it takes courage to live your life, to feel good about yourself. But to feel really good about yourself, you resist the pressure to do what other people want you to do. You must resist it to live your life. If not, you will find it difficult to feel good about yourself. Do not give up!
