Not everyone will understand your journey


Not everyone will understand your journey…The only person that is truly aware of your emotions, your intentions, or your interpretation of experiences (which is all they can be), is you.

As much as others may — at most times — identify with you or your actions, it is impossible to go through life without occasionally being misunderstood. While you can control what you say or how you act, you cannot always control how others choose to interpret it.

And at times, it may seem that no matter how hard you try to explain yourself to others, they just don’t “get it”.

This should be expected.

Not everyone will understand your journey. That’s fine. It’s not their journey to make sense of. It’s yours. It may help to remember that you don’t have to explain yourself or justify your actions to others unless you want to.

The need to explain one’s self is often prompted by fear and the desire to control the outcome of a conversation — for both validation and approval. Just because someone doesn’t agree with your explanation or decisions doesn’t mean you’ve done something wrong.

If you are truly in love with your decisions, the more confident you will be that it doesn’t matter what others think of them.

“If you’re truly going after your heart’s desires and you truly believe in yourself and what you’re trying to accomplish, then you’re not doing it for others or what they think about it — you’re doing it for you.“

And also realize that you are in control of your emotions. You don’t have to go into the defensive emotional state when having a disagreement or when someone is critical of you or something you’ve done. Remember that this heightened emotional state is most often motivated by your insecurities and need to be accepted.

“Inner Peace begins the moment you choose not to allow another person or event to control your emotions.”
As I’ve written before, you can not please everyone, nor should it be your goal to try. What others think of you, your ideas, your decisions, or your journey isn’t nearly as important as what you think of these things.

Your value doesn’t reside in others or what they think of you — it resides in you. Don’t leave your sense of worth and well-being in the hands of others.

The more confident you are in yourself, the less concerned you will be about what others think of you (for good or ill) — and counter-intuitively, the more people will tend to respect you for it.

7 Inspiring Ways to Maintain Your Motivation

When it comes to getting things accomplished, motivation can be hard to come by. Yet, motivation is exactly what is needed. A small amount of motivation is required to do small, simple things, like brushing your teeth. Bigger tasks require more motivation to complete.
But how do you manufacture motivation when you have none?
Learn to motivate yourself and you’ll accomplish more:
Use pain. If you fail to complete a particular task, what damage will be done? It might just be the inconvenience of having even more to do the following day. Or it could be the prospect of someone dropping by and seeing how filthy your home is.
Come up with several good reasons why failing to take action would be painful to you.
Use pleasure. Saving $25 this week might not be too exciting, but the vacation you’ll be taking next year is pretty great. Remind yourself of all the benefits you’ll receive. Make a long list that will help to keep the fire burning inside to successfully deal with those unpleasant or borin…

Discover Your Passion: What Are Your Secret Talents?

What talents are hiding within you? 
Many people have grown up believing they didn’t have anything special or unique to add to the world. Perhaps they came from mediocre surroundings or had no encouragement for their gifts so they went unrecognized. Or maybe they repressed their talents because they felt ashamed. Whatever the reason, it’s all too easy to believe our talents and passions are not worth pursuing. Everyone Has Talent
A great many of us are wandering around with the belief that we aren’t all that interesting when it comes to our natural gifts. But we all have more talent than we think we do.
Very often we hear news stories about children with incredible abilities. Many of them are entertainers or child prodigies featured on daytime talk shows. While it’s incredible to see these talented young children, don’t forget about your own children’s talents, which might not be as obvious. They may not be as advanced as the kids on television but everyone’s talents are worth developing.
