Face your fears
It’s normal to avoid the things that you’re afraid of doing. However, we as humans need to adapt to evolve and move on. At times, it is important to step out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself to expand your learning. Thus, self-doubt should not be an option! The act of owning up to your fears can be challenging and overwhelming, but overcoming them will help you prosper. You know the saying, “Face the bad things then you’re just left with the good”
Let go of negative thoughts
Society has a set of norms and standards for us to follow. I am sure you know the typical checklist of “life” and then ‘the expectations of what to be, how to act and what to become’ ?!? For instance, everyone fights their own battles, like women who allow the media to influence them every day of what it is like to be an ideal woman. Women allow these negative thoughts to consume them, to the point of battling it out within themselves. So forget these unrealistic and impossible social standards and change your mindset, focusing only on the positive vibes.
Surround yourself with positive people
Now is the time to eliminate those who don’t lift you up. The hardest part is letting go of the people who you think are your ‘real’ friends. Reflect and try to see who was there at your worst times and your best times. And another important factor is to let go of what others think of you. You were born to live your own life, not satisfy others.
Lastly, just be yourself, and do what you think is right for you! For instance, there are times in life when your close ones don’t believe in you. But as long as you know what is best for you, then go for it! NOW don’t get me wrong. Acknowledging someone else’s perspective can be a lifesaver, but in the end, you should decide what MAKES YOU HAPPY! Be authentic and be proud of yourself! One way to do it is by changing the values that you use to assess yourself. Start to accept your imperfections because that’s what makes you, you! and follow your daily objectives. Remember, nobody will ever love you until you start loving yourself; as cliche as it sounds but it’s the truth!
Walk in your purpose. Remember, when you set yourself a goal, dedication is key!
I’ve realized it’s important to stand out and be different. In other words, don’t let society dictate your life. In a world that is constantly telling you to be “perfect”, I strongly advise you to just be you. You may think that being you won’t be enough. But once you start to feel comfortable and confident in your skin, there’s no turning back.
So be yourself, be authentic and don’t let anyone take that from you.
I hope this post will inspire you to become a better YOU!
