Today, remind yourself that there are hundreds of people who live their entire lives on default settings, never realizing they can customize everything. Don’t be one of them. Don’t settle for the default settings in life…
Dare to make edits and improvements. Dare to make your personal growth a priority.
The truth is, you won’t always be a priority to others, and that’s why you need to be a priority to yourself. Learn to respect yourself, take care of yourself, and become your own support system. Your needs matter. Start meeting them!
Don’t wait for others to choose you. Choose yourself today!
Seriously, it’s not your job to curb or contain yourself to become someone else’s idea of a worthwhile human being. You are amazingly worthwhile and capable right now. Not because other people think you are, but because you are in full control of the next step you take.
If you feel differently, or if you’ve been holding yourself back recently, realize that the real battle is in your mind. And your mind is under your control, not the other way around.
You may have been broken down by adversity or rejection or stress, but YOU are not broken. You are not stuck! So don’t let your mind, or anyone else, try to convince you otherwise.
Heal yourself, and grow beyond the default settings in life by refusing to settle for the way things have always been.
Choose to take up a lot of positive space in your own life today. Choose to permit yourself to meet your own needs. Choose to honor your feelings and emotions. Choose to make self-care and personal growth top priorities…
Choose to think better about yourself, so you can live better despite the challenges you face.
And YES, I know that’s sometimes much easier said than done.
Thinking better takes guidance and practice but in the end, you can dare to make your personal growth a priority!
