Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe. ~Gail Devers
You are strong…when you take your grief and teach it to smile. You are brave…when you overcome your fears and help others to do the same. You are happy…when you see a flower and are thankful for the blessing. You are loving…when your own pain does not blind you to the pain of others. You are wise…when you know the limits of your wisdom. You are true…when you admit there are times you fool yourself. You are alive…when tomorrow’s hope means more to you than yesterday’s mistake. You are growing…when you know what you are but not what you will become. You are free…when you are in control of yourself and do not wish to control others. You are honourable…when you find your honour is to honour others. You are generous…when you can give as sweetly as you can take. You are humble…when you do not know how humble you are. You are thoughtful…when you see me just as I am and treat me just as you are. You are merciful…when you forgive in others the faults you condemn in yourself. You are beautiful…when you don’t need a mirror to tell you. You are rich…when you never need more than what you have. You are you…when you are at peace with who you are.
Though the way that many of us are designed directs us to live our lives in the hopes of being loved by those who are around us, one huge key to becoming and maintaining a successful life is if we are willing to be, do, and live our lives totally as ourselves, despite what anyone in society thinks.
When we choose to allow low opinions and low amounts of confidence in ourselves to take over our thoughts, then we are unintentionally and slowing destroying ourselves. If we ever want to go as far in life that we may truly go, we have to realize, accept, and act on the principle that we should be confident in who we are, because doing so is the only real way to achieve genuine happiness and success.
Love yourself, no matter who else loves you back; continue to love who you really are as a person!
When we walk by faith there will be times when we hear and see nothing, and are tempted to aggravate a situation in the best attempt to make things happen in life, we are tempted to sway from being faithful and patient, and attempt to create options for ourselves without following what is in our hearts to do.
A faithful mind requires a patient will.
Things will not always move fast enough for you in your life, but things may actually be moving as fast as God wants them to.
Things may not be as bright as you want them to be, but in actuality things may be just as bright as God wants them to be in the moment.
It is way easier said than done of course, but doing so will bring abound great rewards in a persons life for doing so.
Be patient, and remain faithful, doing so will allow for you to receive the fullest extent of blessings intended for your life.
