He Found His Grandmother’s ‘Inspiration Journal’… What He Read Changed His Life Forever.
#7. Be determined to be positive.
Understand that the greater part of your misery or unhappiness is determined not by your circumstances, but by your attitude. So smile at those who often try to begrudge or hurt you, show them what’s missing in their life and what they can’t take away from you.
#8. Pay close attention to those you care about.
Sometimes when a loved one says, “I’m okay,” they need you to look them in the eyes, hug them tight, and reply, “I know you’re not.” And don’t be too upset if some people only seem to remember you when they need you. Feel privileged that you are like a beacon of light that comes to their minds when there is darkness in their lives.
#9. Sometimes you have to let a person go so they can grow.
Because, over the course of their lives, it is not what you do for them, but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them a successful human being.
#10. Sometimes getting the results you crave means stripping yourself of people that don’t serve your best interests.
This allows you to make space for those who support you in being the absolute best version of yourself. It happens gradually as you grow. You find out who you are and what you want, and then you realize that people you’ve known forever don’t see things the way you do. So you keep the wonderful memories, but find yourself moving on.
#11. It’s better to look back on life and say, “I can’t believe I did that,” than to look back and say, “I wish I did that.”
In the end, people will judge you in some way anyway. So don’t live your life trying to impress others. Instead live your life impressing yourself. Love yourself enough to never lower your standards for anyone.
