Your Gifts Will Take You Places That Will Amaze You

If you set goals and go after them with all the determination you can muster, your gifts will take you places that will amaze you. 
If you are really willing to work hard, and if you are really willing to be so determined in life that nothing will stand in your way, then you will be able to see parts of life that many dont get to see, places in life that will bring joy and amazement to your eyes. 

Anyone can escape where they are presently by working as hard as they possibly can, and by choosing to take risks that others refuse to take. No one said that the road less traveled would be the most comforting place, because in fact it will be quite lonely, quite cold, and quite strange as it will be new to you. But at the end of the road less traveled chances are you will make a reality out of the thoughts in your head that were at a point in your life, just dreams. Continue to be determined, and you will be amazed with the fruit that is created for you to feed on later on in your life.

Sometimes The Question Is More Important Than The Answer

A wise man can learn more from a foolish question than a fool can learn from a wise answer.
Many times we don’t realize or forget to remember the fact that what we focus on most intently will ultimately be where we end up in life. If we choose to focus on things that aren’t important, when life is actually happening to us, we miss the biggest lessons from the experiences in life that really are most important. No one can predict what will happen next in his or her life, one can only hope. 

Those who are foolish enough not to hope, not to dream, and not to plan, are the ones who plan to fail. 

Don’t ever be one of these people. Don’t allow yourself to be the person who never made anything from themselves because they refused to learn lessons from life, and the people that we encounter on a day to day basis. Be the person who makes the best out of life, and who chooses to find meaning from every word spoken in it.

Live In A Way That Respects And Enhances The Freedom Of Others

For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others. 
Real freedom is living the way that you truly desire to live. Being free is never just a matter of the physical, because a person can be physically chained and simultaneously be living a free life. 

In order to live free you have to first be willing to free your mind. There are those who never escape what may be called “mental slavery” which precisely means that they aren’t willing to take the limits off of their life. Those who arent truly free refuse to hope, and refuse to believe that good things can happen despite whatever adversity may be faced in their lives. 

We are all given the right to choose what we want to be. Those who have free minds realize that being free is essential to living a healthy life filled with success. Those who choose to live their lives chained, refuse to realize that living their life is a matter of choice. With that choice being either live free, or die.

People Don’t Always Need Advice

People don’t always need advice. Sometimes all they need is a hand to hold, ear to listen & a heart to understand.
Instead of walking in pride, and telling someone about what YOU know, and what YOU went through that may be similar to what they are going through, walk in love, peace, and understanding by just giving your ear to listen, a body to hug, and a shoulder to cry on. 

Once you get over yourself, and get away from your own self righteousness, the people that you choose to listen to and understand will undoubtedly start to pour more of themselves into you more and more each time you are able to connect. 

Though there is a time to give advice, much of building relationships with people has to do with the way that we are just there for them in their times of true need! When you take time out of your own life and give of yourself by just being there and giving your ear, or shoulder to lean on, you will in turn have someone to be there for you in your times of need as well.

Don’t Live Your Life Trying To Please Other People

You can’t find true happiness if you live your life trying to please other people.
Sometimes it takes getting away from it all to really see the world for what it is. As time passes, and as we spend more time with people we start to realize that our thoughts can sometimes turn into a jumbled mess, of their convictions mixed with our own. 

To really see life through our own lenses we have to be able to believe in what is in our own hearts, and from this, build our life in the manner that we desire for it to be. 

It doesn’t work to set your life up by trying to do what everyone else wants you to do. Life can’t be lived until we are able to really see how we can live it through our own eyes. 

Being alone isn’t always a bad thing, because being alone can teach you a multitude of things about who you are at the core, and who is really in your life to benefit YOU.

They Say You Don’t Know What You Have Until It’s Gone But..

They say you don’t know what you have until it’s gone. But the truth is, you knew exactly what you had; you just thought you’d never lose it.
Its true that sometimes we really don’t know what we have until we lose it, but it is also true that we never may know the things in life that we have lacked in until they arrives. In order to live your best life sometimes you are faced with having to let go of things in your life that you never thought that you would have to let go of. The things in life that make us happy are things in life that we must take proper care of, but are things that sometimes die for reasons that have nothing to do with our own lives. 

Sometimes we are faced with the question of losing something or someone and we then give the effort that we should have always given. Finding a delicate balance in life is a very difficult task, but we must give forth a mighty effort in everything we do at all times, doing so will show that you are always appreciative for what you have, and will make instances in your life that you are forced to let go easier, because chances are it won’t be your fault that you are forced to let go.

New Beginnings Vs Happy Endings

If you’re still looking for a happy ending I suggest you start searching for a new beginning. 
Have you ever noticed that the unhappiest people seem to be those who have nothing to look forward to in their lives? One potent example of a certain people whos lives end up crashing down after a while are those parents who dedicate nothing to their lives but raising their children, and forget about nurturing the relationship that they have with their spouse as their seed grows. 

Many people in these situations end up splitting after their children have been raised and leave the home because they figure out that once the child(ren) is(are) gone they no longer have much in common with each other anymore. This is an example of why we must continue to stay excited for the future, and we must nurture every relationship that is important to us to the best of our ability, from the relationships with our peers and family member to the relationships with our selves.

Expect Nothing, But Be Open For Anything

 Try and expect nothing, but be open for anything. Don’t look for happiness, but don’t settle for anything less.
One big tool that many people use in business is the act of under-promising and over-delivering. This act encourages an entity that is providing a service or product to a customer to knowingly promise a customer that they can only provide them with about half of what they know they are truly able to provide them with, and then over-delivering with a bigger or better product or service to please the customer more effectively. 

Sometimes we have to be willing to under-promise and over-deliver in our own lives as well to help build our confidence. One way to try this in your own life may be by setting goals on a regular basis. Set realistic goals, goals that arent too easy but goals that you may be able to surpass if you put a great amount of effort into accomplishing them. Overall just make sure you dream big, expect less, and work hard for the most.

Never Be Ashamed Of What You Feel

 Never be ashamed of what you feel. You have the right to feel any emotion that you want, and to do what makes you happy. 
The things in life that burn inside of us the deepest are going to lead us to our destiny, and to places of fulfillment we would never reach if we never used our hearts. When people say that every bit of happiness you are going to find lies in you and with God’s plan for your life they are not steering you in the wrong direction. 

Ultimately there comes a point in everyone’s life where they must decide if the things that they are doing in their lives are what they really want to be doing in their lives deep down. If we find that something we are doing brings out the passion inside of us, and leaves us fulfilled at the end of the day, chances are it is something that we should probably continue to do. While if something that we are dedicating part of ourselves to is making us unhappy, and leaving us unfulfilled at the end of each day, chances are it is not something that we should continue to do.

Thank God For Another Day, Make The Best Of It

The ideal man bears the accidents of life with dignity and grace, making the best of circumstances.
Being ideal doesn’t mean that one will always be perfect, but it does mean that no matter how a situation may end up, that a person is willing to make the best of it regardless. 

Instead of wallowing in your sorrow whenever things dont go as planned, be sure to make the best out of each situation. When life gets embarrassing, dont be too proud to let out a laugh, crack a smile, speak to keep a positive attitude. Instead of relying on a situation to turn around on its own, be the positive spark that a situation needs to change from negative to positive. 

Never use negative words, continue to use your faith no matter how dreary a situation may seem, just because you are experiencing storms in your life today, doesnt mean that the sun wont shine bright in the morning. Keep your head up!
