“Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.”–Golda Meir
We all have dreams. Inside we have little sparks, desires, to be a better version of ourselves.
Life is full of possibility, but it is up to each of us to step outside our comfort zone and take a risk.
We will never know what could happen if we do not try. There is so much potential, all we have to do is make the decision to take that first step, and then another.
The only person who can is us. No one else can, or will do it for us, nor should we want them to.
What dream do you have? How can you be sure you are always working toward making yourself the best version of you?
Ask yourself what is really important and then have the wisdom and courage to build your life around your answer.”unknown author
Making a change is a little bit like Yoga; there is a lot of stretching involved. You have to stretch yourself mentally and emotionally to make changes in your life. You are creating a different mindset.
Start by taking one small step, followed by another, then another. You do not have to start with a major change, start small, and as you build confidence, move forward from there.
Realize there are no set rules to follow. Everyone is different, and what might work for one will not for someone else. If someone tells you not to do it a certain way, ask why not. Create you own rules for how to improve yourself. You are doing this for you, not them. You have to be comfortable with your decisions.
Remember that you are important and have value. You are the only you. No one else looks like you, thinks like you, has the same thoughts or emotions. Every one has something special about them. Be comfortable with who you are, and do not try to be a carbon copy of someone else. Let your light shine. Believe in yourself.
I’d rather regret the things I’ve done than regret the things I haven’t done.”Lucille Ball
Do not be afraid. There are many things in life that we decide are too difficult, and that we are not good enough, talented enough, smart enough to do. Take a risk and go for it. It may require hard work, long hours, mental strain, sore muscles. Focus on the benefits, and if you power through to the end, the feeling of accomplishment you will feel at the end will be worth it.
Slow down and remember to enjoy the small things. Take a walk, go out to dinner with friends and family, read a book, spend time in the garden. Remember to be thankful for the good things you already have in your life. smile, laugh and tell someone you appreciate them.
I believe that everyone is a work in progress. We should always want to be better in some way, and we can always learn something new. Life is an adventure, and we should savor every little bit of it. Yesterday is gone and tomorrow is not here yet. We have today, this moment in time, and we are promised no more. Every moment is a gift. Make the most of the moments you have by fanning those little sparks you have within you.
“It is confidence in our bodies, minds, and spirits that allows us to keep looking for new adventures.”–Oprah Winfrey
