VALUES, VICTORY AND PEACE OF MIND

Watch this clip below, it’s inspiring.  

You should never try to be better than someone else. 

Learn from others and never seize trying to be the best you can be.Is not what others think of you, is not what others perceive you to be, Is what you really are and you are the only one that really know that.

Don’t quit 

  

Don’t Quit

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow–
You may succeed with another blow,
Success is failure turned inside out–
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit–

It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.

By Edgar A. Guest

Closer & going stronge!

It only gets easier, same way practice makes perfect. We all started somewhere but step-by-step you are closer.
All that is needed is commitment, Patience and lastly Endurance. Like it’s said:
“Rome wasn’t built in a day”.

When you practice something, you formulate a realistic plan and stick to it. Setting aside a dedicated time to learn and practice the new stuff will help keep accumulated information’s fresh.

Nevertheless don’t overwhelm the mind. Also budget a break between every journey, because the mind needs a chance to breathe. Take an hour or two, minutes or day & do something fun or relaxing.

 The famous Greek Philosopher Plato once said, “Life must be lived as play”.  Which suggest we should fill our life with activates that we enjoy.

 It’s never that easy or fun chasing to achieve something great but having the chance to create a routine is what makes it less difficult.

In every journey there is pressure, stress and difficulties. Best way overcoming the above is the word “Endurance”, it is maintaining commitment to a goal during times of pressure.

My reference to an article i read states:
“Endurance is more than just hanging on by your fingernails… it is also sticking to the end to achieve a final goal even when stress and difficulties might challenge and destroy. Endurance is not just the ability to bear a hard thing, but to turn it into glory. — William Barclay
It’s one of the most fundamental parts of sustainable success. Without it, the goals you have set for your life will be challenging to achieve”.

Those are the most important steps i infuse in my everyday life to get closer with every new goal i setup.

Am I better today than I was yesterday?
Yes should be your everyday answer. But when u can’t say that, then you need to do something right way to change your answer to Yes!

Lack of Focus: More Money, More Problems

Great to read!

EXPRESSION OF SELF

Celebrities. We can’t help but see what they are up to and give our thoughts on their lives.

The are constantly in the spotlight for all to see and judge. They have the money, the cars and anything they could ever want. Then why do most of them end up so unhappy and others dying under such tragic circumstances?

Money. Power. Fame. What most people aspire to attain. But what happens when you do get it all? When you have reached your peak like the likes of Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley and Whitney Houston. What happens when you have reached the top of the ladder and there is no other step for you to climb. Sadly, the only way for you to go….is DOWN.

People seek the above things hoping that they will make them happy. That they will lead a life of luxury and will never lack. But the…

How Happy Are You…?

IMG_0977

 

“People are just as happy as they make up their minds to be.”
―Abraham Lincoln

It usually isn’t what you have, where you are, or what you’ve been through that makes you happy or unhappy, it’s how you think about it all.  It starts on the inside.  You control your thoughts.  The only person who can hurt your happiness in the long run is YOU.

Here are 50 thought-provoking quotes about happiness, which will help you think on the bright side.

  1. It only takes one person to make you happy and change your life:  YOU.
  2. Your life will improve only when you take small chances, and the first and most difficult chance you can take is to be honest with yourself.
  3. Stop focusing on how stressed you are and remember how blessed you are.  It could be so much worse.
  4. It is not what happens to you, but how you respond to what happens to you.  Count your blessings while others are adding up their troubles.
  5. Look for something positive about this moment.  Even if you have to look a little harder than usual, it still exists.
  6. When you smile about the life you live, you end up living a life worth smiling about.
  7. Remember, social comparison is the thief of happiness.  You could spend a lifetime worrying about what others have, but it wouldn’t get you anything.
  8. Happiness comes more easily when you feel good about yourself without feeling the need for anyone else’s approval.
  9. Be nice to people on your way up because you might meet them again on your way back down.
  10. Set an example. Treat everyone with kindness and respect, even those who are rude to you – not because they are nice, but because you are.
  11. Kindness is not to be mistaken for weakness, nor forgiveness for acceptance.  It’s about knowing resentment of any kind is not on the path to happiness.
  12. Give as much as you can, but don’t allow yourself to be used.  Listen to others closely, but don’t lose your own voice.
  13. Say what you need to say.  Speak your truth.  There is no greater sadness than holding on to the words you never had the courage to speak.
  14. You can’t change how people treat you or what they say about you.  All you can do is change how you react and who you choose to be around.
  15. Negative company will never give you a positive life.  Examine what you tolerate in the long-term.
  16. What you allow is what will continue.  It’s always better to spend more time alone than allow negative people and their opinions to derail you from your destiny.
  17. When other people treat you poorly, walk away, smile and keep being YOU.  Don’t ever let someone else’s bitterness change the person you are.
  18. Your value doesn’t decrease based on someone’s inability to see your worth.  It’s their loss, not yours.
  19. One of the most freeing things we learn in life is that we don’t have to like everyone, everyone doesn’t have to like us, and that’s OK.
  20. When someone says, “You’ve changed,” it’s not always a bad thing.  Sometimes it just means you stopped living your life their way.
  21. Never be ashamed of how you feel.  You have the right to feel any emotion that comes to you, and to follow a path that makes you happy.
  22. The unhappiest people in this world are the people who care the most about what everyone else thinks.
  23. You can’t base your idea of success and happiness on other people’s opinions and expectations.
  24. Happiness and success is all about spending your life in your own way.  Be yourself.  No one can ever tell you you’re doing it wrong.
  25. It’s always better to be at the bottom of the ladder you want to climb than the top of the one you don’t.
  26. Work to create a life that feels right to YOU, not one that looks right to everyone else.
  27. No amount of money will make you happy if you aren’t happy with yourself.
  28. Maybe the thing you’re scared of is exactly what you should do.  Sometimes life is about risking it all for a dream no one can see but you.
  29. You can’t always wait for the perfect moment.  Sometimes you must dare to do it because life is too short to regret and wonder what could have been.
  30. The most reliable way to predict the future is to create it.  Participate in life instead of just watching it pass you by.
  31. Nothing’s more fun than doing what people say you can’t do.
  32. Almost anything is possible if you’ve got enough time and enough nerve.
  33. Great challenges make life interesting; overcoming them makes life meaningful.  It’s how you deal with failure that determines your happiness and success.
  34. Let your mistakes be your motivation, not your excuses.  Decide right now that negative experiences from your past won’t predict your future.
  35. What is coming is better than what is gone.  Don’t give up hope.  Good things often happen when you least expect it.
  36. If you take another step, and another, you will be surprised to know how far you can go from the point you thought was the end.
  37. Nothing is more beautiful and powerful than a smile that has struggled through the tears.
  38. Any fool can be happy when times are good.  It takes a strong soul with real heart to develop smiles out of situations that make us weep.
  39. No matter how long it takes, it will get better.  Tough situations build strong people in the end.
  40. As we grow older and wiser, we begin to realize what we need and what we need to leave behind.  Sometimes walking away is a step forward.
  41. At the end of the day, you can either focus on what’s tearing you apart, or what’s holding you together.
  42. One of the most rewarding moments in life is when you finally find the courage to let go of what you can’t change.
  43. Whatever you do, don’t get stuck on the one thing that ruins your day.  Smile and be grateful.  Life is too short to waste on negativity.
  44. The less you expect, the more pleasant life gets.
  45. Patience can be bitter, but the seeds you plant now will bear sweet fruit.
  46. Live simply.  Love generously.  Speak truthfully.  Breathe deeply.  Do your best.  Leave everything else to the powers above you.
  47. Do not dwell so much on creating your perfect life that you forget to live.
  48. The trick is to enjoy your life today.  Don’t wish it away by waiting for better days ahead.
  49. Pay attention to the little things, because when you really miss “the good old days,” you miss the little things the most, like just laughing with someone special.
  50. Go for long walks.  Indulge in great conversations.  Pay attention to the moment.  Count your blessings.  Let go for a little while and just be and breathe.

Failure is an event.! Without disappointment, you can’t appreciate victory.

Failure-is-part-of-success

Failure doesn’t mean you not good enough or anything of that nature.

At some point in life everyone fails.  Failure is the part of success that makes you appreciate the importance of that victory!

When i was a kid in school a teacher told me: failure is just something every successful person has gone through, is the road to success.
I really didn’t understand the statement back then but later on slowly i get to understand the word “Failure” after being a victim. Yes it did happen, i failed at something sometimes but got to learn that you don’t die from failures.
Instead it makes you to humble yourself and learn how to pick up from mistakes, in-order to move on.

All the great men and women in history had one thing in common: Failure.
They often failed and failed to the essence of even quoting about failure.

Failure is only a temporary change in direction to set you straight for your next success.
— Denis Waitley

Failure is success if we learn from it.
— Malcolm S. Forbes

But there is suffering in life, and there are defeats. No one can avoid them. But it’s better to lose some of the battles in the struggles for your dreams than to be defeated without ever knowing what you’re fighting for.
— Paulo Coelho

Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another stepping stone to greatness.
— Oprah Winfrey 

If you haven’t failed yet, chances are you aren’t trying very hard. Failure doesn’t mean something bad but you trying a new thing you haven’t mastered. It only represent opportunity and growth not lost.

In an article i read earlier about failure as a tool for success, it says: Success takes willpower, intelligence, determination, and grit. But more than anything else, it requires failure. Success is about learning how to recognize why you failed, and how you’re going to compensate for it”.
Which also means whenever we make mistakes or fail at anything, you don’t just quit.

you have to figure out what brought about the failure…
what steps are needed for you to continue or try again…
How can you change your failure to learning/success… what can you do everyday to make your next try greater.

And for you to be determined, you have to trust yourself and not that which people say about your failure. Your goal should be to impress yourself  not to impress others.
Take for example people that create event. Not all events are successful from start. It takes mistakes, failure and great experience to build a successful event.

Without going through all this, you won’t be able to truly appreciate that victory in a joyful manner !
Victory means much more to a person who has never won before than those who always win. To them they appreciate that accomplishment more than the thought of success.
