Be truly Present. your daily life is already full of distractions as it is, and many of these things can be draining and this keeps us from truly finding, and keeping ourselves.
Do Not Compare yourself to anyone else! You are unique and you deserve the best. also remember that everyone has their peculiar struggles. and you cannot carry their burden, same way they cant bear yours.
Find your strength and use it! Do not let your sparkle go unnoticed. harness that unique gift and talent as trivial or insignificant as it seems and build upon it. always magnify your strengths, they naturally hide your weaknesses.
Be Honest with yourself. Honesty is key in all relationships even in your relationship with yourself. when you’re honest with yourself, you have a better chance at excelling at what you’re really good at.
When you fall, stand up! do not let failure keep you on the ground. push through your mistakes and take the lessons. then you can make better choices and achieve greater successes.
