Never stop.

Why do people sometimes put you down, others criticize you nonstop…??

What is the hidden reason for them to act this way, specially when it comes to family and people close to you??

It is many times subconscious, so quite often they themselves don’t even understand why they do it.

Most people will only help you as long as you stay in their level. If truly helping you means that you will surpass them, whether in knowledge or position, whether in love or happiness, they won’t do so; however, they will smile and tell you something nice here and there just to keep up with appearances and hide their jealousy.

Why am I writing this…?? Because if you are to never give up in life, go after what you want with passion and honesty, then you must be prepared to see people that are around you, and people that before supported you with nice words, become strangers and even obstacles in your path. This is not perfect, or the way is supposed to be. I know. But humans everywhere are like this.

Most people, even though they don’t know it, are fake and wear nice masks. Most people just want the superficial appearance to fit in with others and with how others see them. And what I’m telling you here is relevant information if one is to go after his passions and dreams. One must be psychologically and emotionally prepared for this global fakeness. One thing to understand is that people have been programmed since childhood, and taught, to act this way. Others are really unhappy in their own lives, so they bully others and try to make them feel as bad as they feel.

Try to understand this yourself, such in order for you to raise yourself and keep on your journey. Life is beautiful and about progress, but many human beings make it difficult and ugly even for others. The first thing to strengthen in you is self-respect, which means to stay away from entertaining the criticism and negativity of your family, friends, and others. You want to achieve love, happiness, success in life, then you must be unique and not let others bring you down in any way. Life requires strength, and strength requires your commitment and perseverance in this.

He who builds walls.

  • It is quite often that we may encounter people with shifting moods, people stressed, people arguing for any silly thing, people trying to win at all costs.  These people make life and relationships into a competition.  A competition to be won.  And they’ll do anything to win.  This is the issue they carry.  These are the burdens which they allow to guide them.

  • They may fail in communication.  In fact, true communication is emotional.  Emotional connection to another.  And they lack this.  Just know that the fact that they lack this emotional communication is not on you.  Your priority is to seek respect from them.  Respect from yourself.  Let it go.  Walk away and keep your mind free of anger and frustration. 

 


I write about issues we all live.  Life can be difficult if we don’t have the right inspiration.  Please follow me if you seek this inspiration.  And check out my books below.  Thanks.

Cutting the strings of the puppet.

 

One great impediment and sickness in the world is that many people struggle, suffer, seek to be liked by others.  I do not mean just being nice and true to others to be appreciated, but I mean to obsessively try to fulfill other’s expectations and seek their approval.

When we are children we have our parents or caretakers, and so we look up to them and seek their approval to feel loved and to feel we are on the right direction in life; however, when one is a mature adult this behavior must stop, and you must take care of yourself, seek your own approval and direction.

As a wiser person, who you should be, there is no worst enemy than attachment, following others just to seek a form of “identity,” try to please others to be “cool” or stylish in society or with friends; for this begins due to a mind that is fearful of not fitting in, and thus a mind which knows no self-love.

To be unique, to be yourself, to be free or a “free spirit” you have to be able to live your experiences without being attached to the expectation of others, attached to situations, and attached to the thoughts of wanting to be the center of attention of others.

You must feel whole and love yourself completely in order to be happy and confident in your life; opposite to this, to remain a sheep to the shepherd and to choose to stay as a puppet for some puppeteer in life is indeed to feel empty and desperate within yourself, and this inevitably will lead you to feelings of profound worthlessness and great confusion.

Value in relationships.

 

ec97d462f0321b5361a43ce72b9efd5c

Each one of us, as human creatures in this physical life, seeks to feel acknowledged and valued by the people who surrounds us; for we all have a need for love and happiness in our very personal experiences, and such means we all need to feel respected and cherished by what we think, feel and do.

The core, the great vitality and purpose of life is to develop ourselves in regards to relationships–i.e., relationships with ourselves and with others; friendships, romance, family, acquaintance, and discover the deep connection between each one of us and the world.

This tells us that relationships must be developed strongly, based on a deep love and understanding, that respect towards each other’s different points of views and personalities must be understood and even celebrated.  Because we can all learn from each other–from the good and the bad.

But a human relationship may be fragile if it is not taken seriously, if it is not based on patience and understanding, respect and commitment to growth; therefore, no matter what impulses, what psychological temptations, what outbursts of anxiety we feel at a given moment, honesty and integrity must guide and build our character.

All can be reconciled in a relationship but a deep break of trust, because the first to be kept is your own self-respect and value; but by allowing lies, cheating, disrespect from others, you are certainly disrespecting yourself and devaluing yourself–which sooner or later will take you to self-loathing by adopting feelings of paranoia and confusion, and so a sure self-destruction.

So, know that no matter the situation or the disease (in the case of somebody whose excuse to lie and cheat is some mental one) or the excuse somebody gives you for any reason, your self-worth, the love to yourself comes first; therefore, you must do what you must in order to keep your mental peace and harmony.  Walking away without looking back is often what will give you your peace and harmony back, so do not hesitate on doing this; for it is about your ABSOLUTE happiness and integrity/loyalty towards yourself.

Visualize.

“Follow your passion, be prepared to work hard and sacrifice, and, above all, don’t let anyone limit your dreams.” ~ Donovan Bailey; Jamaican-Canadian sprinter.


“Remember your dreams and fight for them. You must know what you want from life. There is just one thing that makes your dream become impossible: the fear of failure.” ~ Paulo Coelho; Brazilian lyricist and novelist.


Each creation has its purpose in life, each creature has its responsibilities and duties, and as a human being endowed with high levels of self-awareness you have yours.  Your task then is to elevate yourself, to learn about yourself, to create your own path in this world, and to awaken to higher understanding; because true and constant happiness only is experienced by the ones who know and accept this, the ones who are willing to learn from life and keep their dreams, their goals, sacred.

imageso
You must focus and visualize your future, enjoy each moment, and be curious about life and about your own existence; therefore, inquire within yourself and find you inner strengths, your talents, your gifts, and the things in your heart that your ego tells you that you cannot do, the important things, the things that really matter to you, do them.

The first step to visualize is to delve deep into your heart, block the negativity and those thoughts from your mind, and within your passions and inspirations you will create the perfect image.  Keep that image sacred and think about it every day, plan strategies and create a path to  get there, but be patient when you do this.  Remember, whatever comes easy and fast in life, is not great, it is just fleeting pleasure; but whatever takes time and energy, faith and endurance from you, it is great and of long-lasting result.

The worst mistake is to listen to your mind, to your ego, because that is where fear lives; so, just follow your heart and be patient, respect the process, respect people and yourself, but be consistent, faithful to your cause.


Acknowledge the people that stand beside you, that support you, and be an example to them and to whomever needs a helping hand; but never stop or deviate from your goals and dreams for anybody, because if people care about you they will respect you and your dreams, and if people do not care about you and your dreams, then, why would you allow those people, whoever they are, to distract you from your dreams…??

So, remind yourself that the first thing in life as a divine being is self-love, to love yourself enough to understand your role in this life and to know that you matter.  Do not deviate attention from you.  Help others with your example.
This is true love.

Internal revolution.

“We are the only beings on the planet who lead such rich internal lives that it’s not the events that should matter most to us, but rather, it’s how we interpret those events that will determine how we think about ourselves and how we will act in the future.” ~ Tony Robbins.


“One can not reflect in streaming water. Only those who know internal peace can give it to others.” ~ Lao Tzu.



To live life is not just to survive but to overcome and awaken to deeper truth, and to awaken to deeper truth one must question and meditate and not just blindly obey and follow.

bobmarley-02
Sadly, what most people in this world do is to obey and follow, perhaps without actually knowing it, choosing their own superficial ignorance and the ignorance of others. 

But the truth of life then, the answers to all the questions of your purpose, of what is right and wrong, of where you are going, of what death really is, etc. etc., are found in questioning yourself, not questioning the world but yourself.

Questioning yourself means meditating about your reactions, your thoughts, your feelings, your behaviors; furthermore, it means analyzing carefully and truthfully all the beliefs you have, the ideas, the surroundings, the people influencing you. 

All that you come to realize then, if you do this, is that everything to develop yourself and your life to find truth, and thus live by the truth, is self-love, which is to respect yourself enough to change your thinking and behaving to embrace true happiness and be guided by wisdom and not by ego-centered activities.

This means an internal revolution, and this means destruction of the old you to create the new you.  It is to empty your mind and become free, because once this happens then your mind is not confused and suffering anymore but free to create itself and elevate itself.

And then, once your mind is free and full of self-love, you can help others by example.

Higher standards.

“You can’t please everyone. When you’re too focused on living up to other people’s standards, you aren’t spending enough time raising your own. Some people may whisper, complain and judge. But for the most part, it’s all in your head. People care less about your actions than you think. Why? They have their own problems!” ~ Kris Carr; American health author, wellness activist, and cancer survivor.


“Any time you sincerely want to make a change, the first thing you must do is to raise your standards. When people ask me what really changed my life eight years ago, I tell them that absolutely the most important thin was changing what I demanded of myself. I wrote down all the things I would no longer accept in my life, all the things I would no longer tolerate, and all the things that I aspired to becoming.” ~ Tony Robbins; American author, entrepreneur, philanthropist and life coach.



Most people in this world act like they do not like themselves, as they dumb themselves down for other people just to fit in with the fools of a group, whether family or friends, and as they engage in their own depressive thinking while putting themselves down in front of a mirror also; thus lowering their own standards to mediocrity and self-pity every day more and more.

25507813_400644110368957_7845411035457432798_n

They are like beggars asking for love and attention, mistreating themselves and belittling themselves and their lives; consequently, this shrinks the human mind and brings all sorts of distortions of reality.

And because you cannot see reality now, namely that you can do more and be more for yourself, you drown in your own ego while you distance yourself from all self-love which can help you experience all happiness.

There is no more love you can have towards yourself than self-respect, because this self-respect creates mighty confidence and strength from within so you can say no to lower standards in the world, so you can raise yourself above those negative thoughts you may have and the inferior influence from people around you.

So, remind yourself that self-discipline in this is to love yourself and care enough to create the greatest life for you.  Worry and work on yourself, do not listen to others.  You are THE ONLY creator of your life.

The indestructible.

“Self-respect is the fruit of discipline; the sense of dignity grows with the ability to say no to oneself.”  ~ Abraham Joshua Heschel; Polish-American rabbi and philosopher.


 

Plainly put, self-discipline is the ability to make yourself do what you should do, when you should do it, whether you feel like it or not.  And as Lao Tzu wisely said, “Conquering others is mere strength, conquering yourself is true power.”

d10672083d024bfd5562e8b2793ef52b--self-control-quotes-successful-quotes
Most people do not have guidance in life, they lack structure and they are always set adrift in expectation for the next moment, and this happens because they are like ships without a sure route, without a destination mapped, they bounce here and there and when things go wrong they complain and feel like victims.

There is nothing more reassuring and excitingly peaceful, where your mind is set on a definite course and does not deviate, like self-discipline because it is exactly self-respect, it is loving yourself so much that you only do the things which are best for your life, the things that keep you in harmonious track–i.e., eating healthy and the right amount, getting right sleep, working when you have to work and enjoying yourself when you have time for yourself, thinking the right thoughts and sharing in good conversation which elevates, etc. etc.

That is called conquering yourself, ruling yourself, which makes you truly a master of yourself and of your destiny. 

Self-discipline gives you strength and confidence, and it helps you appreciate yourself enough that you want to better yourself every single day, while becoming more aware of the things you must do in order to be successful in life.
