Know yourself. Grow into what you dream and act upon.
“Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.”
– Thomas Jefferson
Your actions will determined your legacy. You legacy is always about what you did. Be a doers and leave your mark.
“A leader should demonstrate his thoughts and opinions through his actions, not through his words.”
– Jack Weatherford
History never remember the followers, it remembers the leaders. Leaders take action and move on.
If you take action and move on, you have better chances to become a leader.
“A true leader has the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions, and the compassion to listen to the needs of others. He does not set out to be a leader, but becomes one by the equality of his actions and the integrity of his intent.”
– Douglas MacArthur
Most leader don’t intent on becoming one at the beginning. They become because they took actions and inspire others with it.
Do your best every day. Do better the next day. And keep going on.
Be nice with others that you can help. Be someone they can come up to and find great answers. Don’t expect a return and you’ll get one.
You want to help others. You think you have something to bring them.
Save your energy for the right people.
When you open yourself to someone and find out that they only want to take your dreams down. Stop, don’t argue, smile and pray for them. Then go away.
If they don’t have an open mind to what you are saying, then you should not waste your time with them.
Pray for them and hope that someday they will open themselves to what you think. If they don’t it will be their choice.
You can’t help everyone.
Some people will be open to you and others will not.
Focus on those who will be listening.
Be careful what you wish for. You may get it.
When you wish for something to happen, you sent intention. The more that intention is linked with emotion, the more power your wish will have.
“Consider the implications. We think we know what we want, but we can never really know until we’ve got it. And sometimes when we have, we discover we never really wanted it in the first place – but then it’s too late”
– Alexandra Potter
How can you reach your goal if you don’t know what they are?
You have to be sure of what you with for, before you wish for it.
A wish is not a game. It’s a funny ritual without meaning.
Treat your wish with respect and they will come into your life with the same respect.
Anger is directly linked to your Ego.
“Anger is an emotional response to being wronged, denied or offended.”
– Joseph Langen
The bigger your ego, the more reason to be angry you’ll find.
“In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.”
We think that we are what we have. We think that we are what we accomplish. And we evaluate others based on that.
“The ego is only an illusion, but a very influential one. Letting the ego-illusion become your identity can prevent you from knowing your true self. Ego, the false idea of believing that you are what you have or what you do, is a backwards way of assessing and living life.”
– Wayne Dyer
You can choose to leave your ego at the door. Let the haters be who they want to be. But not letting them implicate you into their hate spiral. Nothing good can come out of hate and anger. Keep yourself away from them.
“Leadership is not a popularity contest; it’s about leaving your ego at the door. The name of the game is to lead without a title.”
– Robin S. Sharma
Ask and you shall receive.
You need to take action on what you want. Without the action, it’s only a wish. Wish can come true, but it’s always better to take action on it.
Keeping your wish alive is also important. The moment that you start to doubt it, you are working against yourself.
Everything is better when it’s simple.
“Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.”
– Albert Einstein
Here’s my simple asking technique:
- Dream (Go Big)
- Write it down (with a date)
- Do (Take action)
Don’t wait for anything, keep on doing and doing. Adjust as you go along. There’s always something to adjust. As you do, always keep your eyes on the Dream.
What road you take to get there doesn’t matter. There’s always many ways to get there.
Give before you get. Don’t expect to get.
“Giving is the master key to success, in all applications of human life.”
– Bryant McGill
So would ask, why would I give if I can’t expect to get back?
If you don’t expect, you’ll get something back. You can’t know when or how, but it will come back. As long as you don’t expect.
“For it is in giving that we receive.”
– Francis of Assisi
Give with a good heart. Smile as you do so.
If you respect the golden rule, you are a step in the right direction.
‘Do unto others what you would have them do unto you.’
Every good action that you do will bring some wonderful energy into your life. You’ll feel great and if you keep on doing it, it will build a momentum.
Please, don’t be afraid of abuser. If you send good energy, only good people that really need your help will come to you.
“No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.”
– Charles Dickens
Hang on, things will get better.
Nothing great is accomplish without effort, sacrifice and failure.
“Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go.”
– William Feather
Adjust and modify, but keep hanging on to your dream.
The way doesn’t matter as long as you know where you are heading.
“When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hang on.”
– Franklin D. Roosevelt
You can hang on.
Choose to stick to your dream.
When you get kicked down, get up and keep going on.
