A little note of self-encouragement

self loveI was updating my LinkedIn profile when I came across this note written by a career strategist. Which I think it would be good for me to share it here with everyone.

Not just for myself.

The first post should be a positive one.

I believe the importance of self-love because we are our own best friend till the end of our lives.

 

2018 has just started. Happy New Year! Hope it has been a good start for you so far. 🙂

I’ve always believed that any person with a little bit of talent, a little bit of passion, a little bit of courage, some drive, and some perseverance could achieve whatever he or she could dream of.

Nothing is impossible unless you close the doors on your own.

Don’t let the whole staircase scares you, just focus on lifting up your leg to the next step. And then the second, and then the third.

Each of these steps is a completion of your milestone. And once a step is completed, give yourself a pat on your shoulder.  

This pat is actually a physical recognition of a job well done and it is a form of subtle encouragement to trigger your inner-motivation. Try it. 

Start to discover yourself a little bit more, and you will be amazed on how these little actions you take will eventually lead you to the dream you want to achieve.

Take each challenge as it comes and celebrate the successes along the way. No matter big or small. Celebrate our abilities. Work out something to overcome our weakness.

We are in control of our own efforts. Have a growth mindset.

We strive to be better persons hence we shall not compare ourselves with other people unnecessarily.

Do rest if necessary but please do not give up.

A self note – You will continue to grow if you can take whatsoever life challenges in your stride on one day, one step, one action at a time.

You are a start-up….The next great business is you —– Hugh Howey
