Mid-Life Reflections #12

When I was younger, I’ve felt like I was never successful in all of my life. It’s mainly because I was an indecisive person who worried too much. I wandered around but could never break out of my little world. I used to make ambitious plans during the night but continued to grumble about my daily grind the next morning. It got to the point that I was fed up with my place in life and decided that I needed to make a change. I wasn’t going to wait for the next day, I needed to act immediately. I made a commitment to to stay focused on whatever endeavors I pursued, maintained my demeanor of perseverance and became eternally optimistic in everything. In short, I learned that it all starts with you. If you don’t like something, do something about it. Make a change in your life, “you” need to be the one to initiate it. Don’t wait for tomorrow or possible things that may happen. Do something about it. Dream big, there’s no limit to your potential. It’s your life, live it the way you would like it to be. Start now and make a change for the better.

Be The Multiplier

Helping is a multiplying force.  It’s a contagious virus that will compel one to infect others with it.  There are no words to describe that sense of self satisfaction from aiding someone whether it’s asked for or unsolicited.   It could be a grandiose gesture or a small deed, but the feeling you get from assisting someone is very rewarding.  And the recipient has an air of deep gratitude; their appreciation is truly genuine because it comes from within. Some may even be inspired to do the same for a family member, a friend, an acquaintance or a stranger.  They in turn may render assistance for others as well.  That’s the multiplying effect.  It doesn’t take much to help someone, you just need to be willing to take the first step and spread some positivity.  So what are you waiting for, do some good because helping is truly a multiplying force.

Believe In Yourself

Belive-1

Life is full of unexpected twists and turns.  Sometimes everything goes in your favor, other times it’s just off the rails.  Either way, you have to ride out the storm to prove to yourself that you have the mettle to handle whatever comes your way.  Our never-ending journey begins and ends with us.  So, take comfort in knowing that you can make it through as long as you believe.  You have the will, the strength, the skills and the knowledge to rise to the occasion.  So, stay the course to reap the rewards that’s awaiting you on the other side.
