You Are Responsible For Your Own Fulfillment

When we’re incomplete, we’re always searching for somebody to complete us. When, after a few years or a few months of a relationship, we find that we’re still unfulfilled, we blame our partners and take up with somebody more promising. This can go on and on–series polygamy–until we admit that while a partner can add sweet dimensions to our lives, we, each of us, are responsible for our own fulfillment. Nobody else can provide it for us, and to believe otherwise is to delude ourselves dangerously and to program for eventual failure every relationship we enter.

Dare to Be Relentless and Find Your Superpower

When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.

Why Challenges Are So Important

Challenge is important: It keeps you from becoming complacent and doing what is easiest—rather than what is best. The masses go down the wide road of ‘easy,’ while the few struggle along the path to true wealth. This is partly why, when challenges come, you’ll often feel very alone. Everyone else gives up and runs back to that wide, easy road.

The People In Your Life Are Doing Their Best

All the people in your life are truly doing the best they can with what they have. People can only love you to the capacity that they are able to love themselves. They can only forgive and embrace you to the capacity that they are able to forgive and embrace themselves. They can only give you what they have the capacity to give. You may think that you deserve more, and you may be correct. But that means nothing if a person simply doesn’t have the ability to give it to you.

Discovering My Sense of Purpose

I’m no to stranger loss. Loss of family, friends, things. Some losses are harder to deal with than others, my father passed away after I moved away from home, when I said my goodbyes to him, I didn’t realise that I was really saying goodbye. In the past few months, we’ve lost a lot of branches from our family tree, the old,  the young, those yet to be born have all made their transition to the great beyond. 


“Don’t allow your wounds to turn you into the person you’re not”

Those few months have forced me to step outside my social bubble and make some changes in my life, changes which led to the way I view the world and people. These changes have also reflected on the way I handle certain situations that would’ve otherwise set me on fire. I have learned to view aspects of my life differently as well gain a more positive opinion on anything that comes my way. In the midst of all the pain of loss, those changes helped me stay grounded, they gave me a better sense of purpose. For that I’m grateful.
