Don’t settle for less than you deserve

Don’t settle for less just because it’s easier than fighting for what you truly deserve, sometime we have to be willing to lose everything in order to get everything. If you know who you are, what you can do, and what you deserve, go out and get it, and don’t settle!

 

 

"The minute you settle for less than you deserve, you get even less than you settled for." - Maureen Dowd

 

 

Don’t settle for crumbs, you know deep inside your heart that you deserve more, you know that the life you want is possible, you wish and dream every day for a miracle that can change your life, and that is because you know you have settled for less. Don’t be afraid of losing what you have in order to get what you deserve, because the day we settle for a life that is far less than the one we truly want and deserve is the day where we condemn ourselves to a mediocre and empty life.

If you have what you want, if you have a job, a relationship, a career, or anything you always wanted and though you feel grateful or happy about it but at the same time you feel unsatisfied, having the feeling that something is missing in your life, it’s probably because you have settled for a life that is less than the life you have always dreamed of.

 

 

 

“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” – Nelson Mandela

 

 

 

Life is about making decisions and taking risks, where in fact the worst risk of all, is the risk of settling for a life that is not even close to the one we deserve. We have to make a decision, if we want to take the risk to settle and live a mediocre life for the rest of our lives leaving everything to chance or if we want to take the risk to fail over and over again in order to get the life we deserve.

The truth is that if we choose to follow our heart and take the risk to fail over and over again means that we are in the right way to achieve our goals and desires because failure only means that we are doing something, and as long as we don’t give up, we will get the life of our dreams and we’ll live a happy and fulfilled life.

 

 

 

“Every day, people settle for less than they deserve. They are only partially living or at best living a partial life. Every human being has the potential for greatness.” – Bo Bennett

 

 

 

Life is meant to be happy but the problem is we usually underestimate ourselves and so we settle for less than we deserve just because we have no idea of who we really are and what we are capable of, we have everything we need to achieve our goals and desires, but we must believe in ourselves and face all our fears. We must decide to leave behind everything we don’t deserve, in order to get what we truly deserve.

No matter if you have settled for an unfulfilled relationship, job, or any other aspects in your life, you have the power within yourself to decide to change your life. I know that sounds easy to say but believe me, no matter how hard it may seem to change your life, you will do it if you really believe in yourself, you deserve something better, you know that, and your soul is desperately screaming, because your soul knows who you really are and what are you capable of.

 

 

 

“The biggest human temptation is to settle for too little.” – Thomas Merton

 

 

 

Life is too short my friends, and the truth is we never know when it will be the time for us to leave this earth, so let’s enjoy every second of it, there is no time to be afraid, there is no time to be sad, there is only time to do what we love and be happy.

 

Don’t settle for less, go and get everything you deserve!

Love Yourself

The longest relationship you will ever have is with yourself, so the best decision you can make is to love yourself first. Once you decide to love yourself, everything around you will make more sense, and you will no longer suffer needlessly.

 

If you are seeking love, seek within yourself first.

 

 

We suffer needlessly because we seek for others to give us the love we can’t give to ourselves, and when we seek for others to love us, we become dependent on the love of others to be happy, so when someone doesn’t love us and treat us as we would like, we feel sad, and our whole world falls apart.

We go through life begging for love, settling for a mediocre love, accepting a love that is much less than the one we deserve, and we do that because we don’t love ourselves, and we don’t love ourselves because we haven’t realized what kind of person we really are, we are not aware of our potential, we are not aware that we are beautiful human beings, with the power to make our dreams become a reality, we don’t love ourselves because we have forgotten who we really are and why are we here, we don’t love ourselves because we have forgotten that we can change the world and every human being on it in a second with the love, passion, strength and kindness that everyone has within ourselves.

 

 

 

 

“If you don’t love yourself, you’ll always be chasing after people who don’t love you either.” – Mandy Hale

 

 

 

 

When we don’t love ourselves we become a victim of our daily circumstances, accepting a pathetic role where everything seems to be against us, when the truth is that we are against ourselves. The day we decided not to love ourselves, we decided to become a victim of the opinions and behaviors of others. It is not the world who is against you, it is you who is against yourself, and it’s you whom have decided to be a victim by letting the situations and people in your life to affect you, rather than loving yourself, and accepting those things that you deserve and letting go the rest.

When you really love yourself, you will no longer beg for love, and you will accept the love of others because you want it, not because you need it, and you will give love to everyone around you, without the need to have it back, what will make you less vulnerable to the actions of others. Once you have made the decision to love yourself as you really are, you will realize what kind of person you truly are, you will see how beautiful you are and what you can give to others, and you will no longer be devastated for the opinions and behaviors of others.

 

 

 

 

“Love yourself. Forgive yourself. Be true to yourself. How you treat yourself sets the standard for how others will treat you.” – Steve Maraboli

 

 

 

 

Once you realize how amazing you really are, you will accept yourself with your perfections and imperfections, and you will start to love yourself, and once you do that, you will start to finally respect yourself, and you will decide to go after those things that makes you feel happy, and every decision you will ever make will be based in those things that push you forward, leaving behind those things that push you backwards.

We can’t make peace with our life if we don’t make peace with ourselves first, and we can only do that loving ourselves. The day you decide to love yourself, you will find peace, not because everything around you has changed, but because you have changed, and then you will not be a victim anymore, but a creator of your own destiny, going after people, situations and experiences that will make you be the best version of yourself you can be, and you will never accept something you don’t deserve again.

Decide to love yourself and make peace with you and with everyone around you, because the world and the humans suffering on it can only be healed by those people who truly love themselves, because those who truly love themselves, also love life, and when you love life and every being on it, you want to give them the best, so they can love themselves as well.

Your behavior is a reflection of what you have in your heart, if there is love, then you will love others, and you will receive it back multiplied.

Find your inner child

Find your inner child, and you will find yourself again. Go back to those times where everything seemed to be possible, those times where you could become whatever you wanted, those times where you could just be yourself.

 

“When childhood dies, its corpses are called adults and they enter society, one of the politer names of hell.  That is why we dread children, even if we love them, they show us the state of our decay.”

Brian Aldiss

 

Somehow we have mixed up the meaning of being a child, we gave to that word the meaning of being immature, not fully grown or emotionally undeveloped, and so when someone acts like a child, we say that he is a very immature person. But then I ask myself, every bad behavior which is realized day by day by humans against the world and every being around them, it is not an immature behavior?

The humans, especially those who are considered to be very mature, are the one who are destroying everything and everyone around them, even though they have been blessed with a beautiful world, a magnificent body with a wonderful mind with the power to create everything they want, but which they not used to create but to destroy, it is this a mature behavior?

 

“Children have neither past nor future; they enjoy the present, which very few of us do.” – Jean de la Bruyere

 

The adults, those considered mature, are those who are constantly competing with each other, fighting with each other and those who are killing to each other, those people have forgotten the most important values as love, compassion, understanding, kindness, companionship and so on. And they have forgotten all that, because they have become a selfish person, they have become people who are only concerned with their own affairs.

When you grow up and become an adult, leaving the child behind, condemning the child spirit inside you to a death sentence, that’s when most of your dreams die, and that’s when part of your true self dies too, becoming your worst enemy. When you cease to be a child, you become vulnerable to all evil in this world, evil disguised as happiness, and so you let other adults who are also brainwashed by evil, to tell you what should you become in life, and what you should achieve either money, power, fame, material things and other nonsense.

 

“Be happy for no reason, like a child. If you are happy for a reason, you’re in trouble, because that reason can be taken from you.” – Deepak Chopra

 

So I prefer to be like a child rather than an adult whose brain has been washed, I prefer the innocence of a child, a child who laugh just because he can, a child with creativity and imagination, a child who dreams, a child that believe that he can do anything in the world, a child who believe that he can be a superhero and help people, a child full of joy and love, a child that can see the beauty in the small things, a child who is happy for no reason, a child who can love even those things that are product of his imagination, a child who has friends no matter where they come from, a child who doesn’t discriminate others for their religion or race, a child who doesn’t know how to hate, a child who loves truly, and who is always loyal to that love without any kind of interest, selfishness, limitations or expectations.

 

“Hold the hand of the child that lives in your soul. For this child, nothing is impossible.” – Paulo Coelho

 

A child is an angel, who has become a puppet due to the environment where he was born, an environment which has taught him how to become a person with no dreams, no imagination, no hope, no happiness and no love.

It is time for all adults in this world find their inner child, that child who can make you be yourself again, who can bring you joy, happiness, hope and love, that child who will make you dream again, and will make you believe that everything is possible, that magic and miracles actually exist, so find you inner child, the one will make you a happy person again for no reason, a person who is grateful, specially for the small and more important things in this world, so find your inner child, play, laugh, have fun, enjoy life, be happy, dream, smile and live your life again.

 

“What a distressing contrast there is between the radiant intelligence of the child and the feeble mentality of the average adult.”

Sigmund Freud

Miracles are real

Yes, that’s true. Miracles are real, and they can happen to you every second of your life, you just have to let them happen, and the only way to do that is believing. Believe that miracles are possible and they will be.

 

The only way to make something a reality is believing it will, no matter what is our situation right now, if you believe in something with all your heart, it will become a reality. Miracles are the way that faith has to say thank you, thank you for believing even when everything seemed to go in the opposite direction of your dreams.

If miracles were an illusion, we would be an illusion as well, because we are on this planet right now because a miracle happened, the wonderful miracle of life. This is not about religion, and I do believe in God, but it doesn’t matter in what you believe, the important thing here is to be able to see that we are here for a miracle of life, and in fact, we are that miracle, converted in humans.

 

“The whole world is a series of miracles, but we’re so used to seeing them that we call them ordinary things.” – Hans Christian Andersen

 

So why don’t believe in miracles when we are one of them? This life here with all its beauty it’s a miracle, and all of us, being the miracle of life and God, we have the power to create with our magnificent mind every outcome we want.

We see ourselves as a body and nothing else, that is why we focus all the time in the superficial part of everything, because that is what we can only see, we see everything that we can touch, so we only believe in things we can see with our eyes and not with our heart. We see what we believe, as we cannot see in our reality something we don’t believe to be real.

 

“There are two ways to live your life, one is as though nothing is a miracle, the other is as though everything is a miracle.” – Albert Einstein

 

So if we don’t start to focusing in the things that really matter, those things that we cannot see with our eyes, those things we believe they can’t be real, those things we only believe to be an illusion from our mind or an unreal story from a book, we are never going to see a miracle in our life, a dream come true, or nothing as possible, and so accepting the life we think to be real, a life that is far from miraculous.

So if you want to change your life, begin to believe, change your thoughts about yourself and your life, and you will change your whole world, and everything that you once thought to be impossible will then be possible, and you will open those doors that seemed to be sealed forever.

 

“Never lose hope, my dear heart. Miracles dwell in the invisible.” – Rumi

 

Miracles are real, we are miracles and we are real, dreams are possible and real, the life we want, we expect and the life we deserve is real and so is happiness, joy, kindness, loyalty, honesty, passion, success, freedom, peace and everything that human beings can feel for having one of the most wonderful miracles that exist in the whole world, the one that can change everything, the miracle of love.

Once again miracles are real, and the life you have ever dreamed of is also real, change then your beliefs, your thoughts and above all never lose faith, and you will see the miracles, you haven’t seen so far.

 

The life you want is waiting you to believe in it, it is waiting you to believe that everything is possible. Believe and a miracle will happen.

Failure is the road to success.

You must be wondering: Failure, the road to success? And yes it is, depending on how we let failure affect us, it can be a killer of dreams or it can be the road that leads us to success.

 

Failure: a simple word with just a lot of meaning. A word that makes us have Goosebumps with just reading it, a word that scares, blocking us to keep moving forward, a word that dominates us, for the meaning  and power we all gave it to it to control ourselves. Failure is why we haven’t made our dreams a reality; failure is what makes us keep dreaming without real achievement.

 

But failure wasn’t always a ‘’bad word’’.

 

When we were kids, failure was just a word that made us to try harder, that made us be better and better. When you are a kid failure is what gives you strength to keep moving forward until you succeed.

Remember when you were just a baby? I guess not, but let’s try to go back to those times were everything seemed possible. For example when we were trying to walk…

We felt many times until we really made it right? We tried a lot to get in our feet and walk, and we failed over and over again, but we gave up? No! We are where we are now using our feet and walking, we don’t even think about it, but one time we tried so hard to do what now seems normal, and we are doing it because we believed and we never gave up.

We didn’t stop until we succeed, we used failure as a motivation to keep trying, we had a goal and we kept pushing ourselves until we reached it.

 

 

”Failure is success if you learn from it.’’ Malcolm Forbes

 

 

And why we succeed every time we wanted to learn something new when we were kids?

Because we never gave up! In those moments you don’t get contaminated by society, you don’t have fears that don’t let you do what you want, when you are a kid you can see what others can do and use that a way to know that everything is possible, and when we grow up we can also see that others can do it, but because of our fears and lack of self-esteem we believe the fake story we told to ourselves that some of us can and some of us just can’t do it,  and so you give up, or what is worst you haven’t even tried.  So the problem when we grow up is that actually we start to have more fears than when we were kids. We listen what others say, we stop believing in ourselves and we start to use failure as a way to have an excuse for giving up.

If you didn’t give up because of failure, then you don’t even started because of the fear of it, am I right?

We have to go back to those moments where we were just ourselves, those moments where we believed that everything was possible, and that failure wasn’t an ending but an opportunity to improve ourselves, let’s go back to those moments where you embrace failure as a motivation, and where you go out and try over and over again until you make your goal a reality.

 

 

 

”Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” – Thomas Edison.

 

 

The dictionary says that Failure is a lack of success, but my experience and the experiences of people who never gave up taught me that failure is the way life has to tell us that we are in the right way to achieving our goals, because if you weren’t doing anything you will never knew what failure was neither success. You were just settled in a normal life and just existing, accepting a life where dreams are not possible.

 

 

”I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.”– Michael Jordan

 

 

Use failure as a tool to make you to be even better than you have imagined, use it as an opportunity to keep moving forward, knowing that it doesn’t matter how many times you will fall, you will stand up every single time until you make your goal a reality.

Don’t make more excuses, do not let more the fears to control your life and emotions, and stop believing what other people say about it, what they think about your goal, it’s their reality and not yours. Not matter what happen just keep moving forward, if you felt 8 times, you got up 10. If people don’t believe in your dream, use that as a motivation to continue because you believe, and so you will keep trying, you will keep getting better, and you will be successful, and so you will make others know that they were wrong about you and your dreams. 

 

 

”Success is not final, failure is not fatal. It’s the courage to continue that counts.” – Winston Churchill

 

 

Remember that failure is only real if you gave up! so don’t do it, never, until you succeed, do that for you and for the entire world, so they can use you as inspiration to make their dreams a reality.

 

Do not let failure be the killer of your dreams and remember that failure is the road to success!

Follow your heart and intuition.

just_be_yourself-661207

It’s very complicated these days to just be yourself, but as Steve Jobs said: follow your heart and intuition and be who you want to be and not what somebody else want, it is you and only you that will live your life anyway right?.

 

But I know, it is very easy to be contaminated by the society in which we are living and without losing ourselves, don’t you think so?. And you get in those moments where you don’t know who you really are and what are you really doing here.

The problem is that we look without really seeing, we don’t live, we just exist. 

We don’t let ourselves be who we really want to be, and why? because of one of the most lethal things that exist in this world:

FEAR

 

Fear of what?

Fear of failure, fear of the unknown, fear of what other people will think about us.

 

”The greatest prison that people lives in is the fear of what other people think.”

 

We think we are free, but we are not. We live in an invisible prison, that we create with our thoughts. That’s why we don’t let ourselves be whoever we wanted to be.

We dream, we wish, but we don’t believe, we just believe in what other people say, if they say that what you want is hard to get and impossible and that you are crazy for even thinking about it, you believe it, you accept those words as a reality, and you start being what society tell you to be, forgetting who you really are.

 

listen_only_what_your_heart_says-585705

 

I know that you already know what you want to become in this world, maybe you are not 100% conscious about that, but there is something that you love to do, that makes you smile and makes you enjoy life in a way  you have never experienced  before. I guess that you have felt that many times before, and that is being your true self, that is saying to the world you know what? This is what makes me happy, This is who I really am!

It’s unbelievable how we limit ourselves by not following our heart and intuition. We do what we are supposed to do, because they tell you that there is no other way to live. You have to do the right things at the right time, if you want a happy life. But if it were like that, why most of the people in this world are not happy?

Because we do what someone else told us to do and not what we really wanted to do.

We live as if we will live forever, letting everything for tomorrow, but no matter what you have done in this life, we all end in the same place someday.

So break the walls of fear that are around you, don’t be trapped any more by others opinions, remember that somebody else’s opinions don’t have to become your reality.

 

”Your life is yours, live it!”

 

Life goes too fast to waste it, there is so many beautiful things, and there is so much to be grateful and happy for.

So go out, live the life that you always wanted, be the person you always wanted to be, be a voice and not an echo,  give to others what you want to receive and above all:

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you, this is actually what we really are. A beautiful human beings, with  the ability to be and get whatever we want, and we have the power to change other people lives, and our lives and so… The entire world!

 

”The problem is, that we think we have time.” – Buddha

 

So the time is now, don’t wait until you don’t have it anymore. So enjoy the present, is what we have right now and nothing else, and if you want to see the future, see what you are doing now, do not let things for tomorrow, there may be no tomorrow.

Today is the day to be happy, to celebrate, to be grateful, to have joy, to feel love and be just yourself.!

Everything is possible, believe it!

Everything is possible, we can make our dreams come true, but we must believe in ourselves, because a dream is just a dream and it will always be that if we don’t do anything to change that!

 

Since we were born we have been blessed with the most wonderful gift we can ever have…

The gift of life

 

You came to this wonderful place to be the most amazing person you can ever been, you came to have it all, you came to discover who you really are and who do you want to be and you have all the resources to have the life of your dreams, but for some reason we just make this amazing life look like a horrible place…

and why? Why having it all to make this place a paradise we just want to keep saying that life is a nasty place? Why?

 

Because people have a special passion:

The passion for suffering!

 

I mean I’m serious, because with one thought just one single thought you can change everything, with a wonderful feeling, that feeling called:

Love: love for everything around you.

 

”We came to love and be loved.”

 

If you just can have love and give love to every single person and thing around you, you can transform this place into a paradise, you will find the true happiness, if you just can feel gratitude for everything, every single day, every single second of your life, for everything  you got, you have and you will have and I swear that  you can transform this place into heaven, you can have it all, all you ever dreamed of, you just have to believe, believe in you, believe that everything is out there waiting for you to start believing! You must be happy and grateful for everything you already have and you have to love yourself with all your heart so then you can love everyone, and I’m saying every one!  Not only your wife, husband, children, girlfriend, boyfriend, family or friend, every single person in this world!  See? We can just live in heaven but not, we don’t and why?

Because we don’t believe, we only focus in what we don’t want, in what we hate, in how hard life is and how disgusting is and why?

Like I said we just don’t believe in the things that look too good, we just think: Oh no there must be something wrong with that! Is not possible, magic doesn’t exist, just accept that life is horrible! So when you have the possibility to have the job of your dreams and earn the money you ever wanted, you just think: Oh no! it sounds too good, I can’t have it, dreams can’t come true or you found the love of your life but what do you think? She/he must be lying in some point, She/he can’t be so perfect or amazing, She/he will probably hurt me one day and I will be devastated, so what do you do with all those fears and thoughts?

 

”You create your own reality.”

 

 

You just make your thoughts come true, you make your dreams be only that.. Dreams for ever and nothing else, you can make it true! But no, people doesn’t want to because people don’t believe, they don’t love themselves  so they think they can’t have it all because you think you don’t deserve it just because you don’t love yourself and because you don’t love yourself you can’t love other and others can’t love you, so you are back again in your horrible reality thinking life is horrible, life is suffering, I can’t have it all, dreams can’t come true, love doesn’t exist, so you just conform yourself with nothing, with a horrible life, with a job you don’t want, with a relationship that sucks because you just think you can’t have better things and only because  you only want to believe that life is like that, you leave everything to destiny, to luck and to whatever you think, you complain about everything and you keep living as life was a fortune wheel where someone can have a wonderful life, a wonderful family, friends, the love of their dreams, the money, the job and anything their ever wanted and that you have been the unlucky one and that you have to accept it.

But let me tell you something, you make your own reality, you can have it all, you can have the life of your dreams, the love of your life, the best friends in the world, the job you ever wanted, everything!

Just start believing in it!

 

”Believe you can and you are halfway there.”

 

 

And don’t forget to love yourself and love anyone around you, give love every single day of your life because if you don’t give it, how are you going to have it then?

Be grateful for every single thing you have and you will have and for every single person around you who makes the life a better place!

Be happy and grateful for what you got, for what you have, for what you will have, love with all your heart, believe that the things you want are there waiting for you and believe that dreams can come true, if you really want!

 

”There is always something to be grateful for.”

 

You have everything you want, is just there in front of your eyes believe and you will see it! Believe that good things are not possible and continue with your life and thinking that life is suffering, that your job has to be the worst thing, that you can’t earn the money you want and that you relationship has to be horrible, that you have to suffer and cry and be sad, because everyone says that life is like that!

So, if you don’t want that reality anymore, start believing now and you will see that everything is possible, that you deserve the best in the world, that you deserve to be happy, you deserve to be loved and anything you want!

Believe and you will see what you can’t see, Believe and you will be happy for ever,  Believe and you will make your dreams come true!

 

It is my wish to you and every single person of this amazing world! 🙂
