This video says something very powerful to me.
I’m still here.
Where is here, and where are you right now?
Life will throw a lot of mess at you, me and all of us on a regular daily basis. Bills we really can’t afford, taxes, fines, fees and emergencies come up. Life is fraught with distressing and quite often humbling experiences that are shoved into our faces daily.
The really important thing is to keep your head up, no matter what. No matter the problem we need to focus on staying positive and casting our personal worlds in a positive light. Not so much for other people, but for our own indulgence.
Your reality is the sole design of your perception of the world around you, and a negative attitude or perception will most likely bring more negativity than you can handle. Positivity is the key to happiness and fulfillment in ones life. A powerfully positive attitude will attract positivity like a magnet attracts a piece of steel. Just as a smile and laughter can be contagious, so can real positivity.
Don’t dwell on what might have been or what could be. Live in the here and now and be thankful for the little blessings that surround each of us every single day and often go unnoticed. By the little things I mean the comforts of a roof over our heads, electricity and other utilities along with many other things we have become so accustomed to.These are considered luxuries in other places in the world and millions of people go without these things we so often take for granted. It is never a good idea to take things or people for granted.
Life may kick us repeatedly, let us down more than occasional and seem at many times just downright unfair. Well life isn’t fair. There will always be the haves and the have nots. There will likely be people in positions over most of us in our lives that seem to go out of their way to make us miserable. Things may seem unbearable at times but each of us carries an inner strength we may not know exists. Use it to your advantage.
It’s important, not to let any of this ruffle your positive outlook. Like the little engine that could, we must all keep chugging forward and working towards our dreams and goals. Fulfillment in ones life comes not from money or possessions, it comes from within each of us. Being satisfied with what you have and with yourself is key.
It’s important to remember that we are all special and unique creatures. We are all capable of so much more than we ourselves may know. Never fear to fail or make mistakes as these are the stepping stones to success. If you deny your mistakes you cannot learn from them.
Embrace your mistakes. Own them and learn from them. Stand firm on what you believe and always be proud of yourself and confident you can do anything, because you have good reason to be and you can.
Never let anyone else tear you down or cast doubt on your ambitions. You are strong, you are capable, and if your like me, you’re still here.
