Part 2 of 2… Life is not about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself. If you work on your compassion, patience, love, endurance, kindness, and peace of mind, you cannot do that without affecting people around you for the better. They may not know what is happening with you, but you will. The exquisite reward of this kind of self-improvement is that it comes back to you in the form of love, the love of yourself.
Compete with yourself; strive to be a better person than you were yesterday. If you ran a mile yesterday, run a mile-and-a-quarter today. Be encouraged by your personal growth. Look at how far you have come from where you used to be, and keep building on it. Keep records of your accomplishments no matter how big they are; it will give you the strength and the energy to continue.
Compete with yourself by setting realistic goals, and giving yourself a reasonable amount of time to achieve them. Stay true to your own wants and needs. Your family, friends and colleague will eventually notice the changes and comment favourably. These efforts are what make you advance in your knowledge, career, physical health and personal life.
Never fail to seize an opportunity to learn something new. Do not be afraid to go beyond your comfort zone to find answers or solutions to any problem you face. No one will ever be able to take away your knowledge. Strive to take on new challenges. All you need to remember is there is always some super unexplainable power beside you to give you the strength to meet those challenges and help you learn the necessary lessons, often difficult to perfect your own life.
Focus on yourself and your family. Do what is best personally for you, your health and your career which can be the best Mom or Dad you can be for your children, or a volunteer in an organization just because you want to help in making a difference in your community, the list goes on. We are always told: ”What goes around comes around”, therefore, the importance of having a positive attitude.
To move forward forgive and forget. Always finish everything you started. Remember that a smile costs nothing and produces a lot; it enriches those who receive it, without impoverishing those who give it. Always see the beauty in others and let them know what you saw. They might not remember your name but will always remember how you made then feel.
When you come to a point where you have no need to impress anybody, your freedom will begin and you will win your competition.
