These Good Reminders Will Change Your Mindset #8

The quality of a man's life is highly dependent on his mindset. They define his or her limits and possibilities in life. And it will interest you to know that this world cannot be changed without changing how we think first. So here I go with the reminders:

1. Those who complain the most, accomplish the least – It’s always better to attempt to do something great and fail than to attempt to do nothing and succeed. It’s not over if you’ve lost, it’s over when you do nothing but complain about it. If you believe in something, keep trying. Don’t let the shadows of the past darken the doorstep of your future. Spending today complaining about yesterday won’t make tomorrow any brighter. Take action instead. And regardless of what happens in the long run, remember that true happiness begins to arrive only when you stop complaining about your problems and you start being grateful for all the problems you don’t have.

2. Everything that happens in your life helps you grow, even if it’s hard to see right now – Circumstances will direct you, correct you, and perfect you over time. Sometimes these circumstances knock you down, hard.  There will be times when it seems like everything that could possibly go wrong is going wrong, yes I have been there. And you might feel like you will be stuck in this rut forever, but you won’t. When you feel like quitting, remember that sometimes things have to go very wrong before they can go right. Sometimes you have to go through the worst, to arrive at your best. Because our most significant opportunities are often found in times of great difficulty. Thus, you will face your greatest opposition when you are closest to your biggest miracle.

3. There will always be more tough changes to make – Growth is painful. Change is painful. But in the end, nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you do not belong. Remember, you’re not the same person you were a year ago, a month ago, or a week ago. You’re always growing, experiences don’t stop. That’s life! It takes a great deal of courage to admit that something needs to change, and a lot more courage still, to accept the responsibility for making the change happen. But doing so is worth every bit of effort you can muster.

4. The way you feel about people and situations will shift, and that’s OK – Things will seem totally different to you at some point in the future, just as you feel different now than you did in the past. So remember, just because you liked something at one point in time doesn’t mean you’ll always like it, or that you have to go on liking it at all based solely on who you once were as a person. To be loyal to yourself is to allow yourself to grow and change, and challenge who you once were and what you once thought and this means you’re growing, and not stagnant or shrinking.
5. You can best serve yourself and others by giving yourself what you need – That’s right, your needs matter more than you can imagine. Don’t ignore them. Sometimes you have to do exactly what’s best for you and your life, not just what seems best on the surface for everyone else. Decide this very minute to never again beg anyone for the love, respect, and attention that you should be showing yourself. Today, look at yourself in the mirror and say, “I love you, and from now on I’m going to act like it.”  Because the truth is, when we practice self-love and self-respect, we give ourselves the opportunity to be happy. And when we are happy, we become better friends, better family members, and better lovers. 

6. The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts – The mind is your battleground. Yes! It’s the place where the greatest conflict resides. It’s where half of the things you thought were going to happen, never did happen. But if you allow these thoughts to dwell in your mind, they will succeed in robbing you of peace, joy, and ultimately your life. You will think yourself into a nervous breakdown, into depression, and into defeat. You are what you think. Albert Einstein said, you can’t change anything if you can’t change your thinking and I have come to realize that it's the truth. A beautiful day begins with a beautiful mindset. When you wake up, take a second to think about what a privilege it is to simply be alive and healthy .The moment you start acting like life is a blessing, I assure you it will start to feel like one. 

7. You were born with the ability to change someone’s life – Don’t ever waste it. Be kind. Be present. Be someone who makes a difference. In many little ways, you can shake the world. Truth be told, the purpose of life is not just to be happy in your own little bubble, it is to be helpful, to be honorable, to be compassionate and kind, to have your life make some kind of difference that you have lived and lived well. Go ahead, leave the world a little better than you found it.

8.  Everyone you meet serves a purpose in your life – We meet no ordinary people in our lives. If you give them a chance, everyone has something amazing to offer.  They may not be what you expected or wanted, but their presence is important.  Some people will test you, some will teach you, and some will bring out the very best in you. So be thankful for everyone in your life. Yes EVERYONE! It’ll be hard sometimes, but do your best to be grateful for the rude, difficult people too. They serve as great reminders of how not to be.
