Lose Your Pride For The One You Love


Life is too short to allow the trivialities of life to become huge issues because of one’s pride. It is better to lose your pride with someone you love rather than to lose that someone you love with your useless pride.

Sometimes we need to accept the imperfections which plague our lives, set aside our pride and communicate with the people who mean the most to us – even if we don’t want to. Never be too proud to apologize and recognize when you are wrong. Never let your pride and reputation stop you from doing what is right by others.

Apologizing does not always mean you are wrong and the other person is right. It just means you value your relationship more than your ego. Life is much too short and too dear to lose those we adore, especially for circumstances in which we are responsible. Take time out to make the people you love feel special. Remember the way that you treat others is the way that you will soon be treated, and to love your loved ones according to this very important principle.

We all have our share of faults, though many of us fail to fess up to them. When your pride is gone, what will you have? Will you still have the respect and love of the people who are most important? Will you still have your dignity and self respect? there is no one perfect person roaming the earth – no matter what people might tell you.

As long as you are proud you cannot know God. A proud man is always looking down on thing and people: and, of course, as long as you are looking down you cannot see something that is above you. Make decisions based on the wisdom of your whole being, and take action when you know that you are in the wrong. Pride will cost you everything but leave you with nothing!!

Recognizing Your Self Worth


Self-respect is the most crucial aspect of one’s life. If you do not understand how to appreciate yourself and your worth, how do you expect others to? Life is too short to maintain toxic relationships. In order for yours to flourish, you need to work on yourself first. Your value doesn’t decrease based on someone’s inability to see your worth.

Life is too short to waste any amount of time on wondering what other people think about you. In the first place, if they had better things going on in their lives, they wouldn’t have the time to sit around and talk about you. Being able to determine your self-worth is something a person must do by actually doing what they believe in. When a person really wants to make something of their lives they learn that doing so means leaving a legacy of value behind for others to follow when they are gone.

You allow people to treat you the way they do. Your energy, confidence and attitude is the currency that others will transact with. People of value realize that being who they are isn’t always going to be judged correctly in a historical sense by their peers. Even still, they have an everlasting resolve towards doing what they know inside to be great. This comes from a burning desire to live their lives in a true manner to themselves first.

Don’t expect anyone to love or respect you if you don’t fully love yourself first. Be what you believe in, and you will inspire more to do the same. Never let the doubts of anyone, no matter how dear you think they are, stop you from becoming the most valuable person you can be. Know your value and don’t accept being treated in a way less than you deserve.

When You’re Blessed The Haters Come Out


When you’re blessed, the haters come out. When you wear God’s blessings well, don’t be surprised if it draws jealousy out of people.

Anytime you set out to do something great in life, there will be critics. They can be ‘friends’, or family. If you’re going to be a great student, student leader, teacher, business person, coach, bus driver, athlete, or employee, there will be opposition. The more success you have, the more opportunities there will be for distractions.  Even people you thought had your back will at times speak out negatively against you. If anyone wants to do great work at some point in their lifetime, they must do so knowing that there will be some criticism. Criticism should never be able break you, and if it does, you are probably listening to the wrong critiques. In hearing criticism we have to be able to think about it and take it all in objectively.

YOU have to hold your head up high and remember who you are.  You are a blessed child of God and he has found favour in you. Be bold, be courageous, be your best self. Don’t fall to their level.  Continue to stand apart in your warm personality, your positive attitude, and your steadfastness. Sometimes the things people are saying about what we are doing, are right. You can either be willing to change these things now or act as if nothing is wrong and make your situation worse.

Sometimes the things people will say about you and your life will be completely wrong, misguided and maybe even hateful. Knowing that some people are hateful won’t always take away from the sting of the hateful critiques, but these are opportunities in which we can make an effort to develop the thick skin we will need throughout our whole lives.

Stay committed to what you do, always be willing to learn, but never let anything or anybody stop you from doing what you truly love. Press forward to what lies ahead and go out and win the prize of life that God has prepared for you! Use your God given talents to be a blessing to others, even those who speak negatively against you.

To Fall In Love With God Is The Greatest Romance


To fall in love with God is the greatest of all romances; To seek him, the greatest adventure; To find him, the greatest human achievement. Because the greatest achievement for any human being is to love God, yourself, and others.

Love thyself. In the same ways that you hope others show kindness to you, show it to yourself. The same ways that you wish for others to love you, you must first love yourself. In the same ways that you wish people will respect who you are as a person, respect yourself.

Knowing who you are and your purpose on this earth is a very essential trait to achieve success. Without these things no matter what accolades a person achieves, they will mean nothing when being compared to honors they could still receive if they choose to walk within their purpose. People treat you exactly the way you unconsciously treat yourself and one of the most powerful ways to transform your life is to become consciously aware of your beliefs and feelings about yourself and aware that you’re surrounded by magnificent love every moment of your life.

Gratitude is the key to fulfillment. Gratitude and self-worth come hand in hand, and great worth comes from gratefully fulfilling our dreams.Be gracious and show gratitude for everything God has given you by giving back to others. Show that you are willing to grow by accepting that parts of you need to change, and actively taking steps to fix them. Don’t tell God how to answer your prayers or fix the situation, but expect Him to show up. Our God is for us and with us. We can be sure He’ll answer us according to His wisdom. You have but to ask and He will fight for you.

But most of all, know that you are a special individual, and the world will benefit greatly from your person. Be you!

Nobody Trips Over Mountains


Nobody trips over mountains. It is the small pebble that causes you to stumble. Pass all the pebbles in your path, and you will find you have crossed the mountain.

Everyone loves the feeling of securing a huge victory but so many of us look over the fact that accomplishing the greatest feats means we have to win the small battles first. All things are difficult before they are easy. You are making progress if each mistake is a new one.

It’s kind of fun to do the impossible. If you examine all of the biggest characters in history, you will realize that though they may be known for one thing, or a few things even, in every single case of greatness, there are many small challenges that don’t get talked about. It is in these small victories that the greatest people of all time became the conquerors and winners that we still read about and talk about today.
Whenever you see a successful business, someone once made a courageous decision. Never let the small things in life trip you up and keep you from overcoming the huge mountains in life. Look towards your little faults and fix those; slowly you’ll find that you eroded your bigger problems away without knowing it. To win all you have to do is get up one more time than you fall.

Don’t let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use. Be great by continuing to stand in the midst of adversity. And remember to keep moving forward once you gather yourself from falling. Never quit!

Your Setback Is The Platform For Your Comeback


Every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing you for a moment that is yet to come. Every thing happens for a reason. Life puts you down, only so you can get back up for the better. Live life, forgive and forget. Let go of the past. Your setback is the platform for your comeback.

You may be going through some stuff today, and there may seem to be no way out of that situation. However, know this: despite your current situation (or situations), you are not stopped from demonstrating God’s love or from sharing the Good News. God has not abandoned you; He will never leave you nor forsake you.

Detach from the things that attempt to drag you down, because this is the only way you are truly going to be able to give yourself a shot at real success.

You see God invests more in you when you’re low so that He then gets a greater return when you rise. Everyone who has accomplished won victories in their lives has had to deal with the setbacks that life is filled with. We are all thrown various obstacles in our lives, and those who go on to make theirs great are those who realize that every setback poses a challenge. A challenge that when conquered will allow them to become a champion in their field.

Everything happens for a reason, although we may not understand it at the time, if you hang in there, all the pieces will eventually fall where they belong. Those who wish to remain normal beings, and do average things will live a linear life. While those who wish to be accomplished know that the graph of their life will show great ups and great downs.

God has a great plan for your life. Put effort into reaching high, even when you are at your lowest points. Move forward, grow on!

Build From The Heart


If I was true to myself and was disliked by everyone just because I’m truthful, does that make me fake? Well, that’s how they think and they’re absolutely wrong. Above all, be true to yourself, and if you cannot put your heart in it, take yourself out of it.

Do what you feel in your heart to be right, for you’ll be criticized anyway. You’ll be damned if you do and damned if you don’t because society is changing and the things that sustain us most are things that add value to our lives everyday. When we choose to build from the heart instead of aiming to build a life that pleases everyone but our true selves, we are proactively choosing to build our lives over more solid foundation.

Building from the heart means that we must believe in ourselves and know that we are capable of bringing great things to this world because we are full of spirit. It is with this spirit that whatever we do or create is given a real authenticity that originates from the inside of us. Create a list of your fundamental guiding principles for living.

An authentic person with authentic ideas always has the potential to be very successful, especially in these times. So be sincere in what you do every day. If you believe in yourself, showcase this belief by doing things from the heart that will help to represent you and the things you are about. It doesn’t matter if people question your motives. It doesn’t matter if they disagree. If you’ve made a goal and you know it’s right for you, then you go for it. Be yourself. Above all, let who you are, what you are, what you believe, shine through every sentence you write, every piece you finish. Limitations live only in our minds. But if we use our imaginations, our possibilities become limitless.
