mental respect for self-worth is essential for success
Can something that seemed almost at reach slip at the last moment, was that slip caused by personal fault or by an unknown cause that still eludes your minds grasp. You always thought you were on the right path, doing the right thing, going in the right direction. Gave up so much for this one thing, where in the end it didn’t pan out the way you thought it would.
So many sacrifices, so many more things added to the plethora of “to-does”, running here and there, working your tail off; all of these decisional actions can land you in a place where you thought you’d never end up.
Did I meet up to the standard, did I fall short, am I impressive to the outside world, am I accomplished….
Everyday, people, whether business men or women, students, homemakers, kids, or adolescents all hit this seemingly unmanageable, insurmountable brick wall from time to time. Questioning themselves; always taunted by the outside criticizing eyes of some element, within their world.
WHY? Why does everyone, at some point or another, question themselves? When we doubt our own achievements and personal perceptions we are selling ourselves short. You can’t, you’re not good enough, you just don’t measure up; just because one person out of the 7 billion people on earth repelled your self-righteousness doesn’t mean for you to follow suit. It should mean for you to fight harder. The worlds smartest or dumbest, friendliest or unkind, greedy or giving have an equal chance at getting where they want, it all depends on who will work the hardest to get there.
Every single person whether good, bad, happy, sad, humble, or conceited was put on this earth for a reason, and our journey throughout life is to find this reason. Some find it early, some late, some never; don’t put yourself in the latter category, stop demeaning yourself; the quicker done the faster you will find your purpose.
I found my reason at an early age, my ability to withstand criticism and doubt and use them as fuel for my desire has lead me to where I am today. I may not be the best, the smartest, or the highest qualified but I am that one person who can look at a negative situation and make it positive, put 3 hours in for everyone else’s one, have the determination and self focus to propel through the tough times, be the remembered person for my genuine kindness and respectability, and be the one that stands out, maybe not by being the best, but being the person who never gave up, never lost hope, and will never settle for anything less.
Hard work, self-belief, confidence, determination, and will power are the key elements that will always allow for success even in the most failing of situations. These core qualities are entwined within my being, and although I may look regular or common on paper I am unique for my approach to life; I can be anything I want, if I want it bad enough. For me, everything I work for gets 100%. If I volunteer or choose to dedicate my time towards something, you better believe I give it my all, each and every time!!
Remember: people’s perception of you will never be as good as your own, if you don’t believe in yourself, how are other people supposed to? Go for your dreams, never fall short, and never give up; if one path forms a barrier, find an alternate route.
