Having the right mindset or perspective is crucial to success and a healthy outlook on life. Low self-esteem and the wrong mindset can determine failure and unfulfillment. 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 state.
- 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, because if you don’t, you will treat others the way you presently treat yourself.
Accept who you are; You are important!
We are all created uniquely as distinct human beings. We are not clones of anyone else. We are important and that’s simply the reason we are alive. Life is a gift that has been entrusted to us for a time, so seek to add value to other human beings. Be you! Our task is simply to be renewed and be transformed daily so that we can be our best selves and impact the world in a positive way.
Do not compare yourself to others…use their success 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 daily 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.
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 of your 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 with 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.
Do it now!
