I received some really inspiring feedback from a 72 year old gentleman yesterday in which he affirms that, had he just committed to carry out small daily disciplines throughout his life, he would have managed to achieve so much more. He also affirmed that had he focused his energy daily and not spent his life spinning his wheels, “NO-Thing” was beyond his reach. Well the great news for Samuel and everyone else, who reads my daily articles, is that, wherever you are right now and whatever stage you are in your life that is the perfect place to start. Commit to daily discipline; carry out the right tasks daily and a world of possibility opens up to you.

Becoming a Winner
I believe that the most crucial attribute of anyone who wants to live a life of meaning and fulfilment, is first to believe that they deserve success. Unless you can believe in the promise your dreams offer and that you deserve to enjoy the wonder they will bring. You will never have the discipline to carry out, the often difficult daily activities, necessary to succeed.

Belief gives you the ability to hang onto your dreams, when that is all you have to hang onto and allows you to identify your hidden talent and potential. Only once you identify and believe in your talent and potential to succeed, will you invest the time and resources into improving your talent, skills and knowledge. When you believe in yourself and that you deserve to enjoy the fruits of your dreams, you will realise that you are worth the effort and if you believe you can, you will learn how.

Healthy Self-Esteem
Give yourself permission to like yourself, be authentic and be glad to be who you are. Be willing to be yourself, as everyone else is taken. There is no-one else exactly like you on this beautiful planet. You are unique and special, with a unique set of talents, skills, knowledge and perceptive background, which sets you apart from everyone else.

With practice you will learn to love yourself and who you are. Learn to say “I would rather be me than anyone else on this planet”, really learn to exploit your strengths and get the support your need to mitigate your weaknesses’. With practice you will learn to like who you are and realise that you are truly magnificent. This healthy self-esteem will stand you in good stead and allow you to make the most of who you are.

Never Compare yourself to Others
Stop looking outside of yourself and comparing how you stack up against other people, as this is counter-productive and limits your potential. Rather look inward and discover your own unique strengths, abilities, interests and goals. When you can see all the wonderful, unique strengths, abilities and skills you possess, you will begin to project a confident aura to the world around you. This will teach everyone to respond to you in a far more positive light and they will also be willing to support you in your efforts to succeed.

Action Idea: To support your belief in yourself, and to help you to consistently keep growing your skill and ability, commit to upgrade your personal development and on-going education. This commitment will help you to consistently see growth and expansion in yourself, which will help you to grow your belief in yourself and your potential.

Discovering Meaning and Fulfilment – Look Within
Have the wisdom to see that the diamonds you are looking for, to bring meaning and fulfilment into your experience, are waiting to be uncovered in your own backyard. The backyard I am referring to here is in your own mind, where your belief, sense of values and self-worth are embedded.

Once you unlock your own internalised feelings of value and worthiness, your world opens up and you will see that you have so much to share with the world. You will realise that you are worthy of success and that your own diamond is waiting to be uncovered, shaped and polished into the future you desire.

Yes we are not all born with the same mental and physical uniforms, but we all have the equal right to live a life of meaning and fulfilment. What are you waiting for, allow your diamond to shine and fill the world with your excellence.
