To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself – Thich Nhat Hanh
This theory states that you know that you are beautiful, lovely, attractive, friendly, gorgeous and all that is beautiful and good and people like and admire you, so, when you find people staring at you, your first thought should be that the person likes what they see, that there must be something about you that they like.
Of course this doesn’t happen automatically, you have to develop this habit until it becomes a part of you, but it is definitely worth it
Strength and courage comes from having the right perspective of yourself, you can face anything that comes your way and any challenge, when you have self-confidence.
All things splendid have been achieved by those who dared believe that something inside them was superior to circumstance – Bruce Barton
It does not matter where you are today, find your happiness in where you are, have the mindset that you may not be where you want to be today but at least, you are another day closer, you are not where you were yesterday because believe it or not, you are growing and developing everyday, every decision, choice you make, every perception you form, every information you receive, the actions you take, the books you read, the people you meet, challenges you face and many more factors, determine and shape who you are, some are factors you may control and others are factors beyond your control but all these shape who you are. So the saying, let sleeping dogs lie or what may be may be, do not really apply here because thanks to these factors, you are being developed, the question is, are you becoming who you like or are you becoming who you don’t like, so a word of advice, since you are developing and growing anyway, you might as well put in the effort to develop into someone who you want to be, this is the reason for this book. You don’t stop growing or becoming who you are just because you decide to not to do anything about it, life doesn’t stop just because you fold your arms, it is up to you to take the circumstances, the information and these factors and turn them to your advantage.
So think of all the great things about you today and speak them out loud
