“Nothing builds self-esteem and self-confidence like accomplishment.” ~Thomas Carlyle
One of the most interesting aspects of being human is our need to grow. When we are striving for a goal that is important to us, we are full of life. We feel happy and we have energy. When we are being passive, or acting as spectators, we feel weak and insecure. We become doubtful of our potential and our intrinsic value. This is tragic.
Of course life is meant to be a struggle; it always has been, and it always will be. However, when we are proactive and choose our reason for struggling, it changes everything. Instead of feeling oppressed and weak, we feel free, happy, and strong. It all comes down to having an important goal and striving with all our might to achieve it.
Why live in the shadows of your potential? Instead, develop it every day as you seek to set and achieve your goals.
