There are certain things we subconsciously do and keep on doing them because they come out naturally. One of these things is our tendency to compare ourselves to others. This is more common during times when we are at a low point in our lives. Why is he richer than me? Why is he successful and I am not?
I am pretty sure, at one point in your life you have asked yourselves these questions? Let me throw back to you a question. What have you done to attain success and wealth? Before we shout out to the universe and question lady luck, it is best to do a self-examination.
We all have aspirations and goals in life. However, most of the time, because we focus all our energy on feeling sorry for ourselves or in our situation, we fail to achieve our goals. We use our predicament as a leverage to justify why we are not successful wealthy or happy.
The true barrier on why success is elusive is your level of confidence. Confidence is an intellectual tool that helps us push ourselves. It is the inner voice that motivates us to pursue our dream and aim for greater heights. Through confidence, we get the tenacity and strength to step forward and achieve what we want to achieve.
You have to believe in yourself. That is the best starting point for your success. Stop feeling inferior. Believe that you were born to soar high. Tell the whole world — “I CAN DO IT”, and you will indeed.
Each one of us has abilities that others do not have. Wake up that ability and use it to achieve greatness.
Take control of your life and make that change that will lead you to the fulfillment of your dreams/goals.
“Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something, and that this thing, at whatever cost, must be attained.” — Marie Curie
