Sometimes, life is about discovering your purpose and keep reminding yourself about it. Never ignore your emotions but know that feelings are not always facts. Here are a few things you can do to make your life better. This can lead to self-respect and a difference in the right direction.
1. Never follow the crowd.
It is good you set your own targets, own them and pursue them. The fact remains that we live among people with different characters, visions and experiences. But what is important is for us to follow our passion and not that of others. It is also worth noting that it takes nothing to join the crowd but it takes everything to stand alone. Albert Einstein once said, "The one who follow the crowd will usually get no further than the crowd. The one who walks alone in likely to find himself in places no one has ever been". Know what is best for you and do just that and exactly that.
2. Embrace Change.
Change is part of life. You need to move forward. Sometimes, it's important to pay attention to your thoughts. Giving up should never be an option. Persist, endure till you conquer. Change in itself is nothing easy. It takes a lot. Don't ever forget that it is the only constant thing in life. You don't necessarily need to expect it. It comes when the need arises. When you're prepared for change, its easy to accept. Embracing change is very important. Accepting change allows you to adapt better to change and become more flexible. Change can often be harder on people when they resist and reject it. Accepting change makes dealing with it quite easier. Disrupt yourself before change disrupts you.
3. Live out of your comfort zone.
We have often been hearing the saying, to leave one's comfort zone. You may sometimes consider it to be the safest place to be. Live actually begins at the end of your comfort zone. A lot of anxiety may come with leaving your comfort zone as a result of massive uncertainties in life. However, leaving your comfort zone results in personal growth and development. This can only be possible when you challenge yourself. In your comfort zone, your abilities are not tested and you have nothing new or different to do. Understand also that where there is comfort, there is no growth. Leaving your comfort zone gives you more confidence and increases your chances of becoming stronger.
4. Pursue Knowledge.
The very moment you stop learning, you stop growing. And when you stop growing you dying. The pursuit of knowledge is a sure way of empowerment in all aspects of life. Knowledge paves way for the acquisition of wealth. Knowledge better satisfies us if we know how to apply it to our benefit. Keep learning new things. Do research. Read good books. Know allows you to know what you can do. This means the more you know the more you can do and the more places you can go. With knowledge, you can teach others, make friends and and also be a leader.
5. Choose your relationships carefully and wisely.
We gradually become like the people we spend most of our time with. Choosing a partner means choosing your future. You should be able to assess the values, intellectual abilities as well as the emotional status of the person you relate with. Be it friendship or a life partner leading to marriage. Be reminded by this saying that, the man or woman you choose to be your partner affects everything in your life: your mental health, your peace of mind, how you get out of tragedies, your success, how your children will be raised and many more. Choose very wisely.
The best of you is yet to come. Make the efforts and you'll get to your ultimate destination.
