It’s not what others think of you that really matters. Ultimately, it’s what you think of yourself. The danger with that is when you don’t have a healthy personal perspective – whether you think too lowly or too highly of yourself. If you see yourself the way God sees you, you will ultimately be all that He created you to be.
If you have a passion for something, you may not always feel like doing it, but you can never stop doing it.
You might be alone in your room thinking if things could get any worse than it already is. You’re right. It could be worse later, tomorrow or maybe a few weeks from now. Nobody knows maybe the earth will suddenly shatter into pieces or a meteor might hit and wipe out our existence. Nobody…
Everyone may not understand your dream or your passion and they don’t have to. It’s perfectly okay because it’s your dream and your passion – not theirs. You don’t need anyone’s approval to dream and to pursue, and dare not make any excuses for doing so. Live life boldly, shun the critics and naysayers, and explore the endless possibilities.
Don’t go into this new year with a heart full of worries and frustration. You were never meant to fight these battles alone. Complete self-reliance in hope for a positive change to come creates even more burden since without God, we can do absolutely nothing. Let Him help you along the way; let Him be your Rock as He is the only one who can get you where you really want to be.
One of the greatest satisfactions you can get in life is by showing kindness to others. Nothing compares to the feeling and nothing is more therapeutic to the soul.

Some people will continuously disrespect you and insult your intelligence as long as you allow them to think that it’s perfectly okay. Pay close attention to actions—they tell you all you need to know.

As badly as you might feel right now and as terrible as things may appear to be, someone you know or may not know is doing far worse. Think of everything in life you should be grateful for and afterwards, you will find yourself feeling much better. Employing a sense of gratitude quickly banishes discouragement. Tough times don’t last forever. With the right attitude in place, things are definitely subject to change–sooner than later.
You may have heard something to the effect of “The graveyard is full of unrealized goals, unlived dreams and untapped-into potential”. In other words, it simply means that many people have died having not lived their lives to their absolute, fullest potential. By the same token, I’m sure that some people tried to live their dream and worked really hard at it, but unfortunately, for some reason or the other didn’t see it materialize.
Achieving great things by use of our gifts and talents oftentimes do not come easily. People who have become majorly successful in life will probably tell you that it took a lot of blood, sweat and tears, serious thoughts of wanting to give up, and episodes of utter hopelessness after seeing no way that things can possibly work out in their favor. Yet, they are now living those dreams and finally able to exhale. You may wonder what it took; how they made it and the simple answer to that is: Indomitable Persistence. Persistence in the face of difficulty; persistence in the face of opposition & ridicule; persistence in the face of hopelessness & despair; drying the tears, dusting themselves off and getting back up — and repeating that scenario over and over again.
The road to realizing your dream is not an easy one to travel. It is a terribly rough surface filled with unbelievably huge potholes that require a great test of your fortitude and faith to get across. You must be able to envision that beautiful, smoothly paved road on the other side although it is nowhere in sight. The bottom line is the desire to achieve your dream must be far beyond the comprehension of others; it must be glued to and ingrained in every fiber of your being. Otherwise, when the road gets rough (and it will) you will throw in the towel and put it aside – probably forever – and those goals, dreams & aspirations will join the millions of others in the graveyard. If it’s not difficult enough to test every bit of determination in your soul, then it’s not truly your dream, your goal, your aspiration. I believe we can all achieve whatever level of success appointed to us; many times we get so discouraged and give up just before the breakthrough. If only we can see how close we really are.
