Regardless of what we do or don’t do someone will still criticize us. We are not all in the same place in our lives at the same time. Some people will have more wisdom and knowledge than others, and instead of learning from the wise person, some people will resent them. The same is true for happiness and wealth. Sometimes we focus so much on what someone else is doing or saying that we stop being the amazing person God created us to be.
I used to live by the opinion of others. If someone criticized me, I took their words and opinions into my heart and nurtured them. Therefore, allowing someone else to control me. While some people are happy to take our dreams and break our spirit, no one bears our burdens or feels the sadness of our hearts but us.
So often we place a greater importance on failure than we do success. Have you ever noticed how we will dwell on our failure for decades and celebrate our success for only moments? If we even acknowledge it at all. We need to learn from our failures and then release them, and continue striving to accomplish our dreams. When we learn to celebrate each step on our journey toward our goal, then we will cultivate daily gratitude. This process will help us to enjoy the journey.
God created us all for a reason. Greatness is within us all. We just need to find it and release it into the world. When we learn to be ourselves, regardless of the hard words and critics, then we will be able to live joyfully. When we love and accept ourselves, then our authentic joy will shine out to others.
Today, work on being the person God created you to be. He has a plan for your life. Ask Him what His plan is for you, and then work toward accomplishing it every day. Even when it’s hard. Even when you want to give up. It’s not accomplishing the goal that helps us to grow, it’s the journey of accomplishing the goal.
Love and blessings,
