Self Help Guide for Being the Best of Who You Can Be
The word BEST is relative. Some people think that they become better people when theyve climbed the ladder of success and reached the top.
Some, on the other hand, believe that a happy family life will make them the best that they can be. The word is actually dependent on your aspirations in life.
Admittedly, we all have different goals, and some of these goals may be harder to attain than the others.
Whatever our dreams are, we have to know that we only get better when we become stronger. Becoming better, whether physically, spiritually, or mentally, will, in turn, all depend on how we are as a person.
To start with, we have to learn to accept who we are and what our limitations are. We all have different talents and we need to know what our niche in life is so we can work on it.
Our lifes experiences have shaped who weve become, and because we have different experiences, we all have unique talents and abilities.
Someone who grew up in squalor may say that they have become more street-smart, a successful person may boast of his business abilities, and a mother may say that she is quite adept at balancing her time at work and with her family.
Whatever it is, weve learned to cope with life because we simply had to. And in our efforts to meet all the demands placed on us, we had to learn the ways in which we can meet the expectations that others have of us.
The problem is that many people dont want to accept who they are and what theyve become. They sometimes let their past affect them, as if they were ashamed of the very thing that helped them become the person that they are.
Living in shame is not a way to becoming our ultimate selves. If we do, we will spend our lives trying to hide our true nature. Thats simply no way to live!
We must know that there are just things we cannot change. These things should teach us to be proud of whom we are.
After all, when we go through great misery, we come out of it filled with wisdom. We must share our story, because at least we can say that we had it in us to succeed despite the things that happened to us.
We should be proudest of the things that we were once ashamed of. I assure you, people will see us with respect. They will know us as a person who can do it. This is the greatest gift we can share.
Take a look at the world around you and get to know the most successful individuals out there. Youll soon learn that many of them were once selfish individuals.
Theyve become who they are because they learned from their mistakes, and they shared these mistakes with people so that others may learn from it. Theyve become the unselfish gurus who thirst to give guidance to those who want to become as successful as they are.
Theyve earned the respect of millions of people, and we all could be just like them if we learn to accept our mistakes and share our talents to those who need it. If things just worked this way, only then can we truly say that its a wonderful world.
