A person is beyond naive if they only listen to the words and never pay attention to the actions. The actions often tell you what someone isn’t telling you in words.
Your self-worth is not defined by anyone’s perception of you. Their opinions carry no weight as far as your ability to achieve is concerned. It’s what you think of yourself that will either stagnate you or move you progressively toward your destiny.
Be determined to have a good day today. Too many times, we place ourselves at the mercy of what the day may bring. However, what we can control is not what happens along the way, but how we respond to everything. Make a decision to control what you can which is your response. Enjoy this day. It could be awesome, but it’s mainly up to you.
Having discernment can be a great protector. It reveals to you what others don’t realize you know and shields you from deceit that is on the inside of them past the smiles and friendly faces. Discernment can be your best friend.
Disrespectful behavior will repeat itself as long as you allow it. As nice as you are, you must have boundaries for your life set in place as to what is acceptable from others and what’s not. People sometimes tend to confuse ‘niceness’ for weakness and for mere stupidity. It is always best to be nice and polite as a good attitude would open amazing doors for you, but absolutely, positively, without a shadow of a doubt — Have A Backbone. Stand up for yourself when necessary. You are worth it: You are worthy of respect.
Be mindful to have the right folks in your corner. When the wrong ones are there, whether you know it or not, you are on a downward spiral. Good people uplift you. Subtle haters drag you down every chance they get.
It is very difficult to continue doing the right thing when all the wrong things are happening. Every part of your being screams to forget – to just give up as nothing seems to be working. However, take heart that with every action, there is a reaction. Every good deed is a good seed planted into the soil of your life that will reap a great harvest when you least expect it. Keep doing good; continue pressing on and never give up. You have to go through it in order to get to it.
An irrefutable reality is that we will never see this day again. Within each day lies countless opportunities for each one of us to make a positive difference in some way — in our own lives and in the lives of others. When we bypass those opportunities, we bypass the blessings attached to each one of them. See each day as one loaded with great potential and never to be wasted because the fact of the matter is: When it’s gone, it’s gone for good. Make the most out of each day for every day is a priceless gift from God.

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.
