You are Amazing!
by Randy Gage
I have a very important self-development and personal growth message for you today. This one is specifically for YOU…
Stop beating yourself up.
That position is already taken. There are plenty of people that will do that for you. There are governments that will do that for you. The media will do that for you. Organized religion will do that for you. You may be in a relationship with someone that does that for you. They don’t need any more help.
There is only one person in the world that has to believe in you. That is you. And there are more. I am one of them. But the one that matters most is you.
So if you ever get doubtful, or need a little reassurance, come back here. And remember…
You are amazing!
I used to be beating myself up badly. I've learned since last July to be compassion for self. Since then, life has been awesomely great!
Thank you. Creating new habit... stop beating myself, when I am doing something new and I feel like a baby. I am doing exactly the same thing, what my parent did it. So now, decision is - have patience with myself! Thank you
Amen. Know when you beat yourself up, it's just the devil working you. Don't give him an inch. Turn your anger, frustration, pain, over to God and through the measure of your faith, you will be given grace to concour anything. God is limitless, in abundance. There is no limit to where he can take you. And to him be the glory.
@itsmeEdward Thanks 4 the love!
Does anyone use any web meeting tools to aid in the success of their MLM business? If so what do you recommend and why? Thanks so much!
@warrenwwwong Thanks dude!
@fdaghistani Thanks, see you soon!
@JiminLai Thanks dude!
Thank you Randy! Especially today I realized that I love to "hear" this. I am changing all my life... I started to do baby steps on my "new" carier. And of course, as a baby start to move, the steps don´t feel sure herself. I decided to create something valuable for people. I decided to bring more joy to our life. Is very challenging for me... Sometimes come an idea, am I so amazing, to help people change the worries to happiness? I return to God to be strong. There must be a way for me. It must be some way, how to do it. So today, thank you for remind me.. Yes, I can. I can inspire people and can help them change their life from worries to happiness. Than you and all new friends I met here. Thank you of your support today and shown by love I received today. God bless you. M.
what a great post, thanks for remembering it. when we consciously start talking to ourself in a positive and enconraging way everything change
Yes, we are amazing. We can not focus on our "defects" and do our best at the same time. Many opinions, attitudes and beliefs towards ourselves prevent us from achieving what we want.
Randy, I so needed to hear this so at this moment!
I work really hard on my personal development everyday, and the progress is nothing short of astounding. But I do have the propensity to be extremely hard on myself when I fall short of my expectations.
Yesterday I spent several hours with my ex-band mates (we had been together for over 15 years - I left the band because of the toxic relationships/behavior) talking about stuff and catching up with each other (listening to the new record they're working on), and I realized I was struggling to keep my new and improved state of mind intact...that it was all too easy to fall back into old patterns and behaviors...and that I was highly stressed because I was not being my authentic self once again - but instead this other self I become around them in order to be accepted and fit in. F@&?!
When I left, I was really disappointed with myself and my behavior. It showed me just how powerful the influence of old patterns and old relationship dynamics can be. And how much work I still have to do on myself to be able to remain authentic and behave in ways that are in alignment with my higher self, even when I'm in situations where that is not the pervading state of others.
I have to admit I was majorly disappointed with yours truly - and had a pretty good beat up session with myself. Luckily I spent some time immediately afterward with a friend who has been a part of Sean pt deux, and she helped me see the beauty in the awareness of what had just transpired, and the beauty of the struggle to do better, to ask more of myself, to create a better, more beautiful life...and that it was oftentimes going to be painful/difficult/challenging/frustrating etc.
A great reminder.
So the upshot is, I stopped beating myself up for falling short of the mark I had set for myself, and instead celebrated the fact that the struggle, pain and friction are occurring because I'm changing, growing, and demanding greatness from myself - and that it ain't always gonna be a smooth and easy ascension (massive understatement! Lol).
She reminded me that instead of engaging in all the self-loathing for the occasional stumble, I'm much better served celebrating where I'm headed and who I'm becoming. (Thanks LM!)
The glory isn't in the fact that I always do it right, or that I have arrived at enlightenment, or any of that, the glory is that for the first time in my life, I am absolutely moving in the right direction.
@MortgageMinute Thanks 4 the love!
When I was 24 I had someone who worked at Princeton and ran an IT business pull me aside."I don't have a college education, and yet I work for Princeton University and I have my own business. I am better off than most college graduates, and that's because I found my way, and one day you will too."I also had someone tell me when I was 26 I had greatness inside of me. My parents and some of the authority in my life would tell me I was no good and deserved to suffer working for the steel or freight/shipping industries or the government.
I know- I am, but anyway need reminder
as often as possible.
I will pay it forward and will say to many people as I can-
You are amazing!
There are times when other's opinions weigh so heavily on me that I forget that it is quite possible they could be wrong. I printed your post (poster size) and put it on the wall across from desk. A daily reminder of a valuable lesson. Thanks Randy.
