365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 135: Do You Like Yourself?


This is an important question. May I invite you to take a little quiet time for yourself and ask this question? You might feel a little apprehensive to do so, but do it anyway. Knowing the answer may change your life.

Understanding yourself at a deeper level will give you the opportunity to become successful, truly successful.

Maya Angelou said:

“Success is liking yourself, liking what you do and liking how you do it.”

Think about her words for a moment, as they hold truth and wisdom. Success in life is not determined by what other people say; what your mother, your father, society, schools, your boss  or church say about you bears no real weight.

Only YOU can decide if YOU are successful in YOUR life.

I want you to like yourself, what you do and how you do it.

My desire for you is to be successful.

So ask the question.

Take time for introspection and find the answer.

And then, start acknowledging what you like and take the first step to change what you do not like. One thing at a time.

This journey we call life allows us all to change our minds, to transform and to be successful. Maya Angelou’s life story stands as testimony for transformation, triumph and success.

Your success will inspire you to do more, to be more, to create more and to enjoy more.

It will also inspire everyone in your life.

So go ahead.

Be successful.

Start now.
