We are comfortably in the second half of 2017. I must say, time seems to have flown by. I use the month of July as a barometer to check how far I am with my 2017 plans. It’s during this time that I take the time to gather my thoughts and pull myself towards myself.
Many a time we find ourselves angry or unsatisfied with the progress that we have made. Our first point of call is always to concentrate on the negative. For once try something new. You will be pleasantly surprised at what an altered perspective will do for you.
The Power of Staying in Your Own Lane
The first step to altering your perspective in order to build is; STOP comparing yourself to anyone other than yourself. Get to understand how you operate and what your thresholds are. STAY IN YOUR OWN LANE, take the time to realise the power that you wield by simply being yourself. As human beings, we all have similar features, still as similar as they are they do not equate to identical.
You look, think and speak the way that you do based on your journey. You create and are your own mould. Take the time to learn the shape of your mould and see the strength in it before seeing all the flaws.
What You See as Flaws May Be Your Strengths.
If you find that you are not fitting in, take the time to see why before forcing to. Not fitting in may just be your power. If you find that it is not your power, don’t be too quick to change yourself, simply alter your surroundings. You were made to stand out not to conform to a standard that was never made with you in mind. The next person’s, beauty, build, wealth and charisma does not retract from yours, instead, it amplifies it.
Find your strength
The ball is in your court; the question is what are you going to do with it? Reflect having taken all things considered first then move from there. Find solace in your current position no matter how small it seems. Then navigate from there. In all the things that you do, Acknowledge, Accept and Love. Change your outlook, always move from a positive perspective.
Remember Situations don’t own you unless you allow them to. Choose for yourself.
