Hi everyone! The article today is a little different and all about self-respect, something of which I believe to be of paramount importance. I’ve not always had the level of respect for myself that I should have had and some points in my life after hitting serious lows I found it hard to have any confidence and believe in myself. Life is hard and although I have only lived a small fragment of my life and most certainly still have some of the most important moments in my life to come I want to make people aware of the importance of respecting yourself and believing in your own abilities early on.
“Let me tell you about something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows; it’s a very mean and nasty place. And I don’t care how tough you are; it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it…” I am positive you have all heard this very famous quote before. Life will throw challenges at you, it will knock you down, you will have failures and disappointments but so does everyone. It’s about how you get back up from those moments and how you continue to believe in yourself and what you wish to achieve.
Pain is temporary and eventually it will subside. Quitting however will last a life time. People will always want to try to tell you that you aren’t good enough because they are not and they cannot do what you can. You cannot surround yourself with this negativity because then you will lose all respect you had for yourself and your dreams. You must surround yourself with greatness. People who can make you grow, encourage you and challenge you.
You can’t always win in life but you can always believe that something else can happen. You have to believe in yourself that much you have to take the hits and get knocked down. You will fall but you have to get back up and make things better. Create those opportunities and believe you can make a change!
If you don’t love, respect and believe in yourself then who will? If you cannot see your potential and self-worth, how can anyone else? Life is hard but respect yourself and don’t settle for any less than you deserve because you are worthy and you are capable!
Thanks so much guys for reading. Please feel free to follow me daily on my personal blog.
