The biggest mistake people make is to waste time on insignificant things that don’t do them good. Time is the most precious asset in life. It’s something we can never take back, rewind, or freeze. It’s a treasure that holds the most value, yet ironically, we don’t exactly know how to use it right. Every day for the rest of our lives, we’re forced to face this time management conundrum as if we’re this perfect individual who knows what to say or act all the time.
Confidence is a rare yet powerful characteristic. Confident people know the risks of the confidence they have. It’s normal to attract enemies when you grow to love yourself because many people are desperate to be in that state of mind. Someone who continually uplifts himself by celebrating his small wins and choosing to see the good in every situation is more likely to build confidence faster than those who don’t. Once you’ve mastered the art of confidence, you won’t ever be scared by anyone else. You don’t consider other people’s hate as a form of attack but a sign of weakness on their part.
Being a good listener means understanding the risks and situations that people are facing every day of their lives. Fortunately, our society has evolved into becoming a community that’s more accepting of intellectual discourses on mental health, emotional support, etc. Decades ago, these are issues that have been buried under a long pile of taboos because they’re considered unimportant. These issues were brought to light because someone was compassionate enough to listen.
Many of us insist that a lot of us don’t attain our goals because of poor goal-setting, attitude, and habit. While that may be true, it’s not simply the planning stage that determines the likelihood of getting the desired result. Other critical stages such as transitioning and executing objectives are pivotal to guarantee success. Goal-setting is a significant foundation to fulfilling your life’s aspirations. If you do not narrow down your goals and specify them according to four important areas in your life (wealth, relationships, health, self-fulfillment, or happiness), then you wouldn’t be able to measure how long it takes to achieve your dream and the necessary actions it takes to get there.
Fake friends will turn you into a person you’re not, and you will find it hard to believe that you’ve changed because they have you wrapped around their fingers. Fake friends will like you only if you do what’s good for them. They like the expectation of you to become someone that can be of help to them; to them, you’re just a tool, an object they can use as they please.
Fake friends wouldn’t want to know more about you so they only pick one or two trivial, fun facts about you and persuade you that they already know everything there is to know. If you’re not vigilant enough, they can control your thoughts, your choices, and your other relationships in life. They can be very shady manipulators that will hit you in a place you’re not expecting, and it would be a rough life the longer you are attached to them.
