How long till we realize, the only person we can truly rely on is ourselves.
Many people think its selfish, but if we depended on the values we do today with less emphasis on comparing ourselves with others, it would do us much good. In the end, all thought and instinct are made to protect oneself. Why, then are we programming ourselves to depend on what others think or say about us?
Well, no man is an island. However, we do need time customizing our general socialization. We often are over-confident in what we say to each other because that’s how you build confidence. However, you have to ponder on it and push the Auto-Pilot button off.
, What we project, is what we attract. Therefore, there is a greater reason to becoming a better person NOW!
Confidence comes from acceptance, otherwise its just ignorance because the ego is a false identity of our own construction.
There are so many things we’ve yet to know about ourselves. If we were to ask ourselves the questions we pose to others in order to get to know them, how many could we answer off-hand?
We’ve not really accepted ourselves for who we really are. These levels of actualization are very difficult to obtain, but there is no reason to not try.
Deep seated beliefs that change is scary may be true, but how to be content with what we think now, when the brain has infinite imaginative possibilities
Its a wake-up call to me as I write this post! Do this for ourselves and things fall in place. All in good time. If you become so great, how are people going to ignore you.
Living in a Malaysian culture, we’re raised with a need to be ahead of the pack, without making failures. We’ve always seen this especially with education. Failure on one’s half in any aspect, in fact, if not looked down upon by close ones, but is scrutinized and considered to be a shame.
People value the thoughts of other people who judge their progress so much. I’ve fallen victim to something I’d like to call ‘The Underdog Syndrome’ occurs. Where I’ve purposely feel the need to fail at things at first, just to come back and win the crowd.
We hinder our progress, for the mere thought of pleasing others.
You see it happen often with sports. The rush of euphoria, people love a ‘Dark Horse’.
Failure though, is the Mother of Success. We shouldn’t be letting failure bring us down.We should embrace it, if we made our weaknesses our strengths, and wear them like our armor, We become more powerful beings within. We’d be liberated from the bonds of shame.
Its not easy to tell Society what you have learnt from failure, but as long as you know it, you’ll can be on your way!
If you think about it, we’re all just atoms clumped up in different forms. Its funny how far our brain has come to be able to classify this different forms. One of the ways is value. What greater form of value do we have than money?
Well, it is sad, is it not? We have allowed Money to value each other in this world. Of course, this is one of the symbols of ‘The Strongest Survive’.
We have gone so far in the evolution of understanding, we’ve wandered off course in the evolution of appreciating. We’re so obsessed with going forward, we’re ignoring the things we should be walking hand-in-hand with.
Words are powerful, Thoughts more so. What are your thoughts on this?
Everybody breaks down once in a while. Everybody falls. Not everybody gets up. The only difference between the ones that do and the ones that don’t, is the DESIRE.
I realised, there was so many reasons to be down this year. So many negative things have happened. The one thing I didn’t realize was I had progressed so much in my weight loss that I had overlooked it.
We tend to focus on the negativity. Why? Instead of embracing it, we want to avoid it. Realizing that it could propel us to great heights is scary because we all fear how powerful we could be.
Its times like these, that make or break us. Its times like these that I smile. Its times like these the Underdog in us must release the hound and show the world how big a bite we have! Stop becoming scared of what you could be, start becoming scared of what you are not! … START NOW!
Pain is something that everybody goes through. It does not care for your race, religion, age or gender. It will come. The natural human mind tends to fly instead of fighting this feeling.
Why? Well, because its easier.
Embrace the pain, because, deep down, you know it is good.
Pain will make you stronger. Do not fear it, be ready for it and when the time comes, take it. The human body is remarkable, but its mind is amazing. The world we live in is constantly balanced by good and bad.
Stop fighting wars internally and start getting stronger. It may be difficult, but thats the only legitimate reason to use when facing pain. That it is difficult!
If your internal standards can accept this, well, remember, nothing great ever came easy. If you’re willing to fight half the war, fight all the way! No one can say they have overcome pain.
The world owes us nothing. Yet, we forget that as we’re raised in homes abundant in resources. We must always question ourselves of our purpose. Do we know why we live? There has to be a reason, a meaning, a reason to each and every one of our lives.
“There are two great days in our lives the day we are born and the day we discover why” .
We, humans, are very curious creatures. We cannot live with anxiety. That is why you should go and find your purpose and fulfil it. You never know when it will be your last breath or the last time you say ‘ I love You’ to someone.
We should put ourselves out there and do good. Remember, not for any extrinsic rewards, but purely out of sincerity and the want for the greater good. We have long lost nature’s path. We’re the only species to have come and alter the face of the earth with its own resources.
I’m not saying we should all become monks and live in the mountains, I’m saying, we should do better than this. We’re trying so hard to live our social lives, we forget our true nature is to prolong our species and instead, we’re destroying the only land known to be able to support human life.Our intelligence will get the best of us.
Time to stop, and think. We’ve got to act now, change lives, change the world!
