Having the right mindset or perspective is crucial to success and a healthy outlook on life. Its enemy, low self-esteem, and the wrong mindset can determine failure, unfulfillment and tons of unnecessary issues in life. Add procrastination to that and you have the winning recipe for a total breakdown, regret and living in a rut.
Are you underachieving while the world has gone ahead and left you behind? — if that’s the case, then you need to be accountable to someone.
Get Counseling. Find a Mentor.
- You want to live the rest of your life positively for you and your loved ones
- You need it because your mindset and decision-making process have brought you to this point
- Without help, you are prone to repeat the same mistakes over and over again
It is easier said than done, but one must make a conscious effort to overcome. Learn to forgive and love yourself in the process – If you don’t, you will treat others the way you presently treat yourself.
Accept Who You Are; You Are Important…
You were uniquely created as an exceptional human being; you are not a clone of anyone else. You are distinguished and important because you were created for a purpose — that’s the reason you are alive.
There is none who is better at being you than you and for those closest to you, they wouldn’t want it any other way either. You are simply irreplaceable.
Through them, your value is appreciated, demonstrated, nourished and priceless.
Add Value to Others
Life is a gift that has been entrusted to you for a while. In turn, seek to give of yourself by adding value to other human beings. Your life matters to a lot more people than you can imagine so be you – but be the best ‘you’ that you can be. By becoming a better version of yourself, you will also be creating a better life experience for others, as you learn, change and inspire.
Every day, your top priority is to be better than yesterday, in every area – to be transformed so you can always function at your “best self” and positively influence your world.
Do Not Compare – Use the Success of Others as Inspiration.
Another thing is not to judge yourself based on other people’s success in any way. Success is not necessarily determined by material wealth, academic background or status, but by the working out and fulfillment of purpose. Once you know your purpose and reason for living, you should seek to increase your worth in that area through education – in whatever form.
- What is your purpose in life?
- Are you fulfilling it?
- Have you prepared for it academically or otherwise?
- Are you willing to share this value with others?

Set Goals, Achieve and Celebrate
Set short and long-term goals! Be realistic, practical and pursue them with all the vigor and energy that you can muster. Think of your future self already in the accomplishment. Let that be your motivation. Meditate on this every day and work hard to realize your goals. No one will do it for you.
When you have accomplished some goal, celebrate yourself. It is better to be five years older having obtained your achievement than to be five years older without it. Age does not matter.
Take Control Now, Your Destiny Is Still in Motion
Stand in the mirror. Love the person you see. By faith believe that everything that has happened to you has happened for a reason. That all life’s events have shaped your character to better prepare you for “now.” Learn from your failures. This will be a big part of your comfort going forward. Embrace it and walk in that authority and confidence.
Your personal storms may also be affecting others. There may be others awaiting your storm to cease so that they can benefit from a reformed you.
Yes, that’s a fact. That should be one of your greatest motivators. Your victory may be a victory for them as well. Be encouraged! Beating yourself up will not make you stronger. It will only delay your progress.
Get cracking. Do it now!
