This article aims at showing you that things are not as bad as they look. Your life is actually pretty good. You tend to be depressed and lost in self-pity when actually you are winning at life. Success is here, you just need to find it.
Medias put out unreachable cannons of beauty that no normal human being can reach in a natural way. This way we never feel complete or fulfil.
So here’s the thing, we are all different. We all have different bodies. Weight has nothing to do with body shape. It differs from a person to another. Additionally, the quality of your hair and skin doesn’t depend exclusively on the amount of product you put on it. It’s actually related to the genes you inherited from your family.
If you look around you, at the real people in your life such as your family members, your teachers, your friends, the people in the supermarket. In fact, you will see how diverse the world is and how OK it is. We are all meant to be different from the other and more importantly to be accepted as such.
You would believe your mirror is a good way to be able to know what you look like and evaluate your level of beauty. Of course, you’re mistaken as you’re not looking at what you look like. Instead, you’re looking for something that is not you that you’ve been programmed to believe is what beauty looks like. Since you don’t find it, you conclude that you are not good looking. In fact you are just as beautiful as any other young girl. You are beautiful just as you are.
Winning at Life
All you need to do is looking at things from a different perspective.
Look at your life (home, school, family). What kind of home do you live in? Do you have your own room? Is there food at your house? Do you have clothes to keep you warm and more? Is your home heated? Do you have all the books you need for school? Is there Wifi at home?
To know if your life is a success you simply need t check this list:
- You have a roof over your head
- You ate today
- You have a good heart
- You wish good for others
- Someone cares for you
- You strive to be better
- You have clean clothes
- You have a dream
- You’re learning
The aim here is to make you realise something very important. Your life isn’t that bad as sometimes we tend to perceive it. To learn to appreciate your life more, I refer to my other blog article: The Power of Gratitude.
Making Success a Habit
Measuring success used to focus on two things: power and money. In the new normal, success is measured with our level of wellbeing.
Here, using a Success Bank makes it your duty to bank all your success. It directly impacts your level of confidence. Think of all the times when you were successful. There are so many more than you can remember. First, start by making a list of the ones you were able to recall.
The more you will deposit in your success bank, the more you will be able to withdraw. Afterward, claim back success from the past. The aim here is to build up your confidence by having a constant reminder of all you achieved in life. Recall as many details as possible about each one of them. This way you can experience them better in the future.
To build your Success bank, use a clean jam jar. Any container will do, but the jam jar offers the added bonus being transparent which helps the process. Using the list you just wrote about your past achievement, create pieces of paper where you can retranscribe your text. Fold each pieces of paper a few times and place them inside your container. You see now why the jam jar is better. You can just look at it and be reminding of your accomplishments.
After that, make it a daily habit to add a new win. Just for a few weeks to get the hang of it. Once you’re confident about it, simply make a deposit once a week with all your triumphs of the week.
This way you will be able to see your bank grow and grow. Anytime you feel down or that you’rre good to nothing. Open the container, read one of your achievements and let it sink in. There’s no such thing as failure. There’s only learning.
