Most of your reality is your core beliefs and the habits that reinforce them. Success is about escaping your negative beliefs and developing positive ones that aid in self-esteem and an increased avenue, through habits. We are only limited by our thoughts, and habits that reinforce them. Habits can only be replaced, they cannot be destroyed. And common sense tells us, that a negative habit should be replaced by a positive one - to be happy, even if success or great wealth is not guaranteed.
I have found out that I was unnecessarily reinforcing negative situations and circumstances of my past through negative and habitual use of my memory and recalling. It is unconscious, hard to control. You create your own reality. Assert your will, lest you even stop having one. It's deeper than words and theories - application. Show the world your good traits by being what you can be, the hard way. Never give up. Don't forget, never forget - you were born to rule.
People wonder what is the meaning of life. Well, the meaning of life is a life of meaning - live in a way that life means something to you, that makes you really happy living it. If you can't be happy, nobody can help you. And you go on with your weaknesses and poor habits questioning, 'What is life ?', 'Why is it ?', 'Does God exist ?' and so on...
Your life is your responsibility. No one give's a damn. Be yourself. Be authentic. Get real. Practice honest self-talk. World does not bother - If you die, you die. You are all by yourself, out here on your own. So please, take care, it's a sincere request. Always remember to take care. This is what life is supposed to be - the way it is, and this is how you are supposed to live.
Just living life, is so difficult. There are situations that make you weak and hence, you wish things were different. Even after putting in, a lot of hard work and effort, there are setbacks that you have to face and are not even mentally prepared for (they come unexpectedly). There's no use reading and writing, if one can't improve his/her life. That's the sole problem with life - one cannot live any way one wants, one has to make life worthy of being lived, with a reasonably good amount of happiness.
Just getting by is painful and makes life, not worth living. Your major threat in life is the collective stupidity of the people who affect you directly. You have to use your smartness and wisdom to overcome it. Otherwise, they will impose their will on you, and that will always result in your loss. You gotta think for yourself and learn to be selfish.
Don't fear anything. You are the CEO of your life. You run the business of your life.
