Learning to be consistent in all things you do will change your life. What kind of parent would you be if you weren’t consistent with rules, discipline, and running your home? You can’t just “show up” when the mood hits you. If you learn nothing else in life, remember to be steadfast.
9. Don’t Listen to Naysayers
You will never get anywhere in life if you allow others to define your self-worth. There will always be doubting Joe who doesn’t think you’re good enough, pretty enough, or intelligent enough for a job promotion. However, you must prove these negative people wrong. You can and will do anything you set your mind to do.
10. Stop Playing the Victim Card
You have two choices in life, and you can either be a victim of an overcomer. Your choice will affect your future. The victim mentality is someone who uses their struggles as a crutch.
However, the overcomer uses their adversities as a stepping stool. Everyone has things that hit them in life that take them to rock bottom, but it’s how you use these life lessons that will define you.
Throughout history, there have been many greats that have used their adversity as a stepping stool. Sure, it hurts, and it can be crippling when life hands you blow. It’s especially true when the storms don’t seem to end.
Consequently, it’s during these times that you are molded and made into a better person. When a potter takes a lump of clay and molds it into a beautiful spot, they must first take out all the imperfections to get the stunning masterpiece. You can think of the Universe as developing you by shaping you through adversity.
Rather than fighting the tough times, find out what lesson you need to learn. You can rise above anything life throws your way, and it will mold and shape you into a better person. You can change your life for the better when you learn to use your times of adversity as lessons rather than playing the victim. Learn to live by the old motto that winners never quit and quitters never win!
