1. Stop comparing yourself with others
No matter where you are or what you do, think about how you started and how far you have reached and that itself is a success story.
Remember, there will always be someone more attractive, intelligent or successful. The trick is knowing the unique value of what you bring to the table. Whenever you focus on what other people have that you don’t, you give away your power. So, take back your power. Decide that your energy will be used for believing in yourself and creating the life you deserve.
2. Do not fear failure
Nobody wants to talk about failure. We don't like failure. We hate it so much that we even scorn those who fail. Even worse, we tend to dislike ourselves when we fail. Failure is a part of life and everyone has faced failure. The manner in which each person handles failure is different.
Failure is and always will be unexpected, unavoidable, uncomfortable and universal. We need to understand how to face it. More importantly, we must understand how we can use failure as a force of change.
Do not fear failure so much that you refuse to try new things.Do not fear failure so much that you refuse to try new things.
3. Nothing is permanent in this world
Life is like a flowing river in which nothing stays, relationships, fame, riches, poverty, happiness, sorrow, disease, objects, people, troubles, problems, etc. All things will change with time, nothing stays permanent. The problem is that we want everything permanent in this temporary life but we forget that things are not in our control.
Change is the only reality of this temporary world. This means that everything in this world changes whether the seasons change from summer to winter and vice – versa. Sometimes we feel very energetic, sometimes we feel weak. Companionship changes the feelings or emotions of a person. Price of commodities, development of technology, modes of study, etc. everything changes with time.
Sometimes we feel that a certain thing will never change but with time we come to realise that we were wrong. The only constant thing in this world is change.
